monday musings by shyloh #73

I, Shyloh, demand payment in the form of hay for all the hard work I have done this weekend. I have given a grand total of 5 sled rides and those do not include the hour long rides with Allie. I am one pooped pony. I am not used to working this hard. 
I'm too fuzzy to work hard!
Believe me, I tried my best to get out of it. I thought if I gave Allie a hard time, she would give up and put me with my herd. No such luck. . .

I tried to make it hard for her to attach the sled, but Allie was persistent. I spun around and got all tangled up, but Allie just untangled me. I even acted spooky one day in hopes that I would scare Allie into not hooking me up, but that was useless. I tried not stopping when asked. I tried not standing still. I even tried standing so still that I didn't move at all. I tried to go one way when Allie wanted me to go another way. I even turned myself all around that when I was facing Allie in the sled, I scared myself! None of my tactics worked. 

I guess I'll have to live by the motto, if you can't beat them, join them. The one day there was so much stuff going on and I was a super pony. There was a horse freaking out in it's stall and banging around. I could hear from the outside, but I wasn't scared. The manure spreader was idling and in our way, but I just took Allie right past it. Some horses were scared of us and our strange contraption and we almost got ran over by them, but I was cool as a cucumber. Ice was sliding off of the roofs, I did a little jump at that, but to be fair, so did Allie. There were horses in the paddocks running and bucking around, but it didn't bother me none. I did freaked out some of my herd when we took the sled past them. I went up to them to let them know it was okay, though.
Also, there were pieces of hay on the ground.
I do have to say, even though giving horse sled rides is hard work, it sure is fun. But it would be more fun if I got some hay out of it. Seriously.

Here are some of my rides from the weekend!



  1. Shy you are looking so pretty with your fuzzy coat & your blonde mane! And you did an awesome job with that sled. I think you deserve hay and some carrots too.

  2. Good job Shy! You also get your cart really soon too!

  3. I have some! I just need to remember to put them on the harness.

  4. Oh yeah, jingle bells would be just perfect :) And of course the extra hay for all the work

  5. You so deserve some extra hay and maybe an apple. Doesn't hurt to ask.
