Blinders On


Here is the second driving bridle. I sent the first one back because it was too small. He definitely has room to grow in this one! But it will work.
He is not so happy in it since he can't see. I had a hard time taking a photo from the side since it was just me and he didn't want me out of sight. He is much more dependant and docile with blinders!

Sunday in the SF Bay Area we had glorious weather! The sun was out, it was warm. Everybody was riding around grinning. Janow was very happy and walked very fast and loose. I had been worried about his feet hurting him because he was walking so slow, but when the sun came out his old walk returned. It was especially great because we had gotten soaked on our ride on Saturday. Sadly, Monday the gloom returned and today we got rained on again.

Someday spring will come to stay.... :)

Nice blinders. How interesting that they have such a calming effect. Makes sense, I guess, but I'd have thought they'd get nervous not being able to see.

He looks great in his new bridle/blinders. I'm glad you were able to get out and have a nice day for a ride. Janow seemed to enjoy it, too. :)
