Rodney’s Autumn Plans

Greg has good ideas. Make a ring out of candy floss [We Spooked], put a saddle on Rodney [Looking Forward], drive Milton [What Are You Driving At?].

Greg has bad ideas. Jump your horse [Recap].

Greg has ? ideas. After Indiana [Show Report], Rodney was finally, finally over everything [One Year]. However, we kept running out of light in the evening. One morning, Greg said, “Get up. We’re going to go ride Rodney.” Yes, we. It is a joint effort.

The three of us took a short stroll from the barn to one corner of the field, surveyed our domain, and returned. I thought it was a fantastic exercise: just enough to challenge Rodney; simple enough that he could have success. I decided we would do this until one or both of us got bored – Greg doesn’t get a vote – whether it takes 6 days or 6 months.

Therefore, we are now up and at the barn by 6:30 for our team walk. I think it was a great idea. Greg may not.

Superstitious? Moi?
I couldn’t bring myself to use the word F*ll in the title. Autumn it is.
