Make-up Monday

Apologies again for falling off the blogosphere, I'm afraid I just don't have much to share. Thankfully all is going well with the ponies. They moved in at night on Friday & got clipped Saturday so be warned photo dump coming...maybe for a wordless Wednesday 😈

Nancy's best bud F, Kika's lookalike
I rode Nancy in an arena yesterday for the first time in ages and she was lovely. A couple tense moments here and there but overall a good girl. She gets a little stuck in her head thinking about what might be asked of her next; but all I want is for her to work in a straight line - no lateral work. No biggie, we'll get there 😇
We did manage an amazing solo hack on a new trail last Tuesday as Kika made friends with the newbie on the field. Nancy and I haven't been on a purely solo hack (without Kika on a lead) in years. Nancy was a rockstar, didn't falter once nor was she anything but willing to move on with a happy swinging stride. Not an ounce of stress at being all on her own - I obvs don't count as company ... well not in Kika's mind 😂

Love the leaves on our solo hack 
Kika and I have been mostly accompanying people into the woods and have really worked on her "bravery". K likes to pretend she is a giant chicken and incapable of leading when strolling in the woods - however once she does get (ahem is coaxed) in front she marches on like a boss & actually leaves Nancy in her wake. Nancy does also slow way down when K takes over the lead so there are two of them in it as K does stride when in front lolz
We are getting better at keeping them both side by side for better chatting opportunities 😀

Big brave Kika leading the charge in the woods
