Another battle with Katy this morning did not start the day well. Guess she remembered the hill from last time we took her up it and she really wasn’t interested in the view from the top! The track was a lot rougher (& loose) under their feet than the last time I was up there so both ponies found it hard going. I don’t mind walking beside my horse so to be kinder that’s just what I did. Weather was cooler for Katy but dry and the views were stunning from the top. Well… They would have been if it wasn’t off the huge new power pylons and wind farms. What are we doing to our beautiful countryside???? It is pollution in my mind and utterly dreadful :o( of course it wasn’t helped by the fact that we had the noise of trucks and machinery all day as they are still working on the power lines but how on earth they got permission to build them that close to such a national landmark (the best preserved and established bit of general wades road) I’ll never know! Nice descent down into Fort Augustus for the night and enjoyed ice cream and beer with the ponies down by the Caledonian canal. Looking forward to a pub meal tonight :o). Tomorrow I head on alone, not looking forward to Katy’s morning tantrums and just hoping I have the strength to take these two onto the finish line!
