On our afternoon walk round the block I spotted a pony and trap in the distance:
As they grew nearer I could see it had an added trailer:
The driver stopped opposite us and we had a short chat.
The trap is original and he had made the trailer. It was its first outing:
The girls and Jack Russell looked really happy, thoroughly enjoying their trip out to the corner shop for ice creams:
It was good to see that passing drivers were being considerate and moving slowly giving the pony a wide berth. Also the pony was obviously used to traffic.
I was invited to have a ride. An offer I would have taken up if Penny had been at home but I wasn't sure how she would react being so close to a horse, or the Jack Russell.
