The main reason?
When I don't get called to work I get to ride my horse in the morning. It's glorious. Even on days like today when she's a total punk but then makes up for it by being a good girl on the trails. The fact that she was chaperoning her boyfriend may have had something to do with it...
A few different bloggers have talked about trail riding recently, and for me it has always been a stress reliever. Mollie tends to be "on alert" when in the woods, but not naughty. She stops and gawks at things that could potentially attack her "herd", but is quiet and walks on the buckle in between those moments. She definitely prefers trails to ring work, and I've gotten to see many different places between her two spotted ears.
