I took Izzy pony-riding and we were having a lovely time, but we passed a dead Badger on the side of the road, which Izzy talked about for a long time afterwards. I explained that it had probably been run over by a car and she said, “People shouldn’t kill animals, they should look after them.”
A few minutes from home, Cracker coughed whilst Izzy was trotting and she fell off, grazing her elbow and back on the road. Brave little thing that she is, she was soon giggling again, finding it funny when Cracker pulled a long string of Cleavers from the hedge to munch on. She got back in the saddle and said it hadn’t put her off.
Total wild time – 1.5 hours
