I had resolved not to post any more pictures of pony Bella for a while, as she’d been showing up pretty often in these posts. But yesterday, Kitty and I went for a ride on the preserve with granddaughter Sarah and her lovely filly Aggie, and Sarah decided that it would be a good experience for Bella.
I’m not sure how Aggie felt about that idea, but she’s very tolerant. Whatever Sarah wants, that’s fine with her. Bella, though, looks a little dubious.
Bella’s a little flatlander; she’s had no experience with hills. Some of the trail was pretty easy . . .
But some was a bit harder.
We also rode on the narrow trails right along the river, but I couldn’t manage pictures there. I was in front, and there was no room to turn around. Aggie and Bella had no problem sharing the trail, though, and the pony seemed to take everything in stride — even the muddy spots and the delirious dogs.
We’ll probably do that a few more times, with the eventual object of getting Bella out on the trail with Sarah on board. So far, she (the pony, that is) has taken everything in stride. It’s a good thing that Aggie is so accommodating. She’s got one of the nicest temperaments I’ve ever seen. And she’s pretty, too.
She and Sarah go really well together. Of course, Grandma’s not a bit partial!
