I don't have to fear it


If there was any doubt, our Sovey boy proved once again that he is a stellar riding partner. A large cherry tree had to be cut down very close to the pastures and on Thursday, while I was out riding Sovereign bareback, the tree service arrived with three huge trucks - one had a cherry picker bucket and one was pulling the limb grinder.

To get back to the barn we had to walk near all the commotion. As we approached, a limb fell and Sovey skittered and acted like he might not be safe to ride any closer. My mom was walking with us and she walked ahead and asked the guys to just stop for a second so I could get back to the barn. I knew I could slide off and lead him by if necessary. 

But, just then, ol' Sovey started marching right down to the machinery all proud and not a bit spooky. I thought we could easily go around to the far side of their trucks, but he had other ideas. He was so funny! It was like he had to show everyone how he wasn't scared. It was kind of embarrassing actually - I didn't think we needed to go right through the area where they had been working, but he was determined. He walked through the middle, stepping around and over larger limbs. He even stepped over fairly big pieces of the trunk. I dropped the reins and leaned forward and basically shut my eyes. I didn't want him to get hurt and I figured he probably knew what he was doing and would end up better off than if I tried to help. 

After I dismounted at the barn, I hugged Sovey around the neck. He would never allow such affection under normal situations, but he knew he had been extremely good so he allowed a hug. What a funny horse he is!

  1. Good boy! He sounds like he was very proud of himself after showing how brave he could be. Love that horse and I don't even know him.

    1. He is a character and has such a personality. Everyone who knows him loves him, but he is not a typical horse in any way!

  2. Çit - Tel Örgü - Panel Çit
    Panel Çit ve Tel Çit, Tel Örgü citbu.com'da
    Panel çitler ilk etapta tel örgü sistemi içerisinde düşünülerek güvenlik amacıyla tercih edilmektedir. Özellikle de büyük şehirlerde bahçeye sahip olan kişilerin bahçe etraflarını Çit ile kaplatarak dışarıdan yabancı kişilere girişi engellemesi gerekmektedir. Sadece yabancı kişilere karşı değil kedi, köpek gibi hayvanların girişini de kapatarak bu alanı koruması gereken kişiler böylelikle daha rahat edecek olup kendilerini de koruma altına alacaklardır.
    Tel örgüler daha çok güvenliğin sağlanması adına kullanılmaktadır. İç tarafı dış etkenlerden korumak amacıyla tercih edilen tel örgüler bu sayede daha çok alana yayılmakta ve çok fazla alanda tercih edilmektedir. Sizler de tel örgüleri kendinize ait olan tarla, bahçe, garaj, park gibi alanların çevrelerine inşa ederek rahatlıkla kullanabilir, uzun ömürlü olarak kullanma imkanına sahip olup yapılarınızı en iyi şekilde dış etkenlere karşı dirençli tutabilirsiniz.
    Çoğu zaman çeşitli yapıların çevresine güvenlik önlemlerinin artırılması için belirli sistemler yerleştirilir. Daha güvenli yapıların olması, dışarıdan içeriye yabancı kişilerin ve hayvanların girmesini engellemek amacıyla tel örgü sistemleri içerisinde yer alan jiletli tel tercih edilebilr. Jiletli tel en çok talep edilen yüksek güvenlik önlemleri arasında yer almaktadır. Dikenli tellerin çok yeterli olmadını ya da daha tehlikeli bölgelere daha güvenli tellerin çevrilmesi amacıyla jiletli tellere her zaman için ihtiyaç duyulmaktadır. citbu.com
