Changed diet, less wine, no women and very little song. Boring, no not really I saved a considerable amount of money living the quiet life that I brought another horse. I still have Stella and took her for a ride for the first time in almost 5 months, and into the bargan I rode her bitless. Now that was an experience for me. Made the heart pump for a few minutes but all credit to her. Stella was a little confused with the new freedom of being bitless. Add to that she had not had someone on her back for such a long time I expected her to explode.
Hats off to Stella. She walked out confused with no bit in her mouth and had to learn what the side pull ment. Her excitment was evident in her constant breaking into a trot but she answered my directions and came down to the walk then broke into the trot, a couple of side steps. Shied at the horse eating bird sitting on the fence did a couple of small pig roots and within 20 minutes had worked out the signals recieved from the bitless. She realised I was not going to fall off, or climb off, so she settled down into her work. A ride over the farm.

New horse, let me introduce Bugs a 6 yr old green broke gelding. Who in there right mind would take on a green horse after having a heart attack. Well, I have, so more stories to come about these two horses
I won't be gone so long this time.
