How are you doing? Thanks for your kind compliments on Prince and my dog, Melian. Wow, it's been a really long time since I've been able to blog properly! It's just been such a busy schedule lately that I hardly have any computer time to myself.

But, I have had time to take Pippin out almost every day and, of course, Melian comes with me too. Last week I was driving him to the mountain. Melian was attached to the side. We started down the lane and a car stopped behind us. We waited to cross the highway and once on the other side noticed the car following us.

Then we turned up the road to go up the mountain and the car drew up from behind us and stopped a little ahead. A woman jumped out with a camera and started exclaiming about how cute Pippin is. Pippin's expression was all attentive as he LOVES being the centre of attention. He was like, "I know it!"

Anyway, she and her husband asked if they could snap some shots because they had never seen anything so adorable. Of course, I said yes. And then she said hello to Pippin and was as friendly as ever.

In the meantime, beautiful Melian is standing there with a long suffering patience written all over her face. They hardly noticed her and she was thinking, "Let's get this over already! How boring can people be?" However, if she had been the centre of attention she would have been loving every minute of it. When people say she's so beautiful she raises her head a little and prances a few steps. Wow, what vain critters I have!

So, we went on our way. We met a couple of loggers, one of whom thought Pippin was adorable. Melian again ignored. Pippin must have looked particularly cute that day!

So, we turned around at the base of the mountain to gallop back down. Pippin was eager to set off and we raced faster and faster. We passed the logger and he looked in surprise as this teeny tiny horse came galloping by at 25mph.

Eventually I started to slow Pippin as we drew nearer the highway. Melian was running loose at this point and I wanted to hook her back up to the cart. We pulled over, I attached her, and then I clicked for Pippin to move.

Nothing happened. I clicked again. Nope. Hm, what's wrong? I got out and looked at Pippin wonderingly. What?! No bridle? I have never in my life had this happen to me on any horse.

The bridle was around his off fore. It must have come off while I was hooking up Melian. He probable scratched his face on the shafts and it got hooked there somehow. That's the only explanation of which I can think. I'm certainly glad it didn't come off while we were galloping down!

Anyway, never a dull moment with creatures in your lives! Here's a vote for you and I hope you're enjoying spring. Here it's warm and then freezing and then raining and then snowing. Typical spring. Can't make up its mind.

P.S. Are you English? I'm English too even though I now live in the USA.
