Grabbed the big monster after work and some errands run. I should have clean pony blankets for the pickings before the weather goes cool next Thursday. Gosh I hope so!!
Rode Ransom in the french link bit, in some effort to be kind. He had other ideas. Fast Fast Fast! My goodness! Despite a solid warm-up, where I really thought I had his attention, he was entirely focused on going quick, to nowhere.
We played for about 45 minutes before I just about gave up. Sure he was collected about as much as normal, sure I had his attention, but he never seemed to move at a speed I could enjoy, but simply try to keep up with.
I made plans to fix this Friday morning, and was mostly successful.
