Lovely 1st trail ride in the snow along our regular route.
Townes was nosing the snow a little as he went along and no this fool didn't slowly drop to his knees & lay down! My feet were about on the ground, so I basically walked off him. He rolled onto one side (thanks for not tearing up my favorite saddle) & got up like it was all good.
What the hayle?
How do I stop this from ever happening again? He's not even much of a roller in the pasture, has never looked funny at water or grass - that fresh untouched snow was too much to resist apparently.
Had to trudge a ways in the snow to find a rock to use as a mounting block & hopped back on.
Ok we laughed pretty hard but it's not funny. He's not allowed to put his head down ever again!
