I got these pictures in the mail today, what a nice surprise! These were taken in July about a week and a half after the "Blue Heron Incident" (when I got thrown off when it scared Gilly). Anna and Derek Hendershot came by when I was riding Gilly. Anna had gotten a new little digital camera and was trying it out. So she snapped some pictures of me and Gil. Love the one above of him standing really nice.
He has his eyes shut here and was being a bugger and not wanting to stand still. Guess he wanted to keep moving.
Now he is all spraddle legged and mouth open, lovely Gilly! He has his front feet at the edge of the road and his hind feet down in a small ditch so we are a little lopsided.
I rode on up the road for about 10 more minutes then headed home. As I got back to the driveway another Blue Heron flew up in Gilly's face! This was the day that he did so well and didn't spook; scared me I can tell you! We walked on like nothing happened, I was so glad of that.
I am looking forward to summer weather again! Right now it's raining outside, ugh! That means mud, mud and more mud!
