Apparently Koda took offense to the fly bonnet to the point that he almost shook it off (got it off his one ear before the tie string saved it). This horse gets such bad bites in his ears, yet cannot handle a fly bonnet. it ended up in the back pocket (aka tucked into the back of my breeches) for the rest of the ride.
Part of Koda's exposure to 'new' things on the trail.
He grabbed a drink on the way. These puddles were one of those slick/deep puddles of clay like mud. He was really interested in checking these puddles out along with the mud cracks and deep ruts from the work equipment using the road.
He REALLY liked the mud puddles...
trail and then a few short canters at home.
Yay! Koda has at least SOME extension!
Plus can come back down and be semi-fancy too
