Our rides have been fun and frequent lately...so much so that I haven't had much time to document them. Mom and I have been heading out on the boys and our friend, Ginny, has been riding Sovey on some days too! We all have been having a great time. September is such a nice month here for riding. We usually ride in the mornings, but last week one day I was on my way home from teaching and I just felt like riding. I phoned Mom and she reluctantly agreed to meet me at the barn - (she is not an afternoon person). I didn't want to go home to change so I just wore my "work clothes" which I jokingly call my "costume" - clothes that really are good for nothing but looking "good" - no actual work can be done in them. As I was tacking Sovey up, he became enamored with my shoes. I had on these goofy flats that have tiny red flowers on them. Definitely NOT proper barn shoes. Sovereign kept sniffing and nibbling my shoes! I realized that he must have thought the flowers were candy or something to eat. It was very cute and funny. Pie, with his bloodhound nose, was not fooled for a second. His nose knows candy and silly flowers on shoes are not candy! We had such a great ride and all my stress from work just vanished.
Here are two more videos Ginny filmed on Labor Day. Sorry if everyone is offput by the quality! We have been having so much fun laughing at these!!! I have shorts on with my wellies and I was freezing that day so I threw on a warm-up jacket I found in my grandmother's house. It is from the 1970's and adds the perfect touch to the 8mm feel. Hilarious! At least Mom and Sovey look great - so does the Pie.
