have you ever got your tail stuck in a fallen tree?

what did you do? I still feel mildly traumatised by the experience, it was especially frustrating not to have any secateurs or scissors to hack at the branches or tail with. I can't believe I'd set off without any, such a fool sad

or would you not have tried walking 'through' a tree in the first place? hmm

No I don't bring scissors on a hack. Camera would be better for us.. You are back now 'safe'

although not seriously convinced anyone carries secateurs I think a swiss army knife with a fold out hoof pick would be a life saver

they used to say always have 10p to make a phone call grin I need to update my thinking!

but it was otherwise a lovely ride

I always carry a large machete in case of brambles and a boy scout in case of stones in hooves. HTH.

grin Pixel that made me laugh SO MUCH I was asked to provide an account of what exactly was so funny and obviously got a teenaged hmm for my troubles making me feel very small and silly

should probably carry a lance too in case we happen upon a jousting tournament (would desperately love that to happen)

Ah well, basic mistake there. You don't tell teenagers what you are laughing at, you say you'll tell them when they are older. They hate that wink.

Could you get a folding lance, like those old people walking sticks? (If there's room in your pocket along with the shovel and sack for cleaning manure off the road of course hahahahah).

grin oh I'd forgotten about the shovel and sack too

people are fucking weird aren't they!

Can't say I have but we did drag a branch down the road for a fair way!
