A short day today -but the borrowed Highland Ponies had sore back feet! Not surprised as they too were completing a Cross Scotland route -just with a different starting point. My friend Sal was meeting me later with some wooden boards to help me over a couple of cattle grids without side gates. I got her to bring some extra hoof boots for their back feet. They were not a good fit, but they would at least get us through the next day. Sal also brought wine and cooked me up a delicious feast. I will definitely be using her as support crew again!!!
