    Default Brils first long hack since his time off...with pics!

    We went on our own over to Port Meadow, open access common land which is a few miles away. You have to cut across the top of Oxford to get there, but luckily it mainly involves residential roads whilst crossing a few bus routes rather than much time on busy roads. We ended up out for about 1hr 45mins, we took it fairly steady with only 2 longish canters and a bit of trot on the roads mostly.It's probably about 8 miles or so in total.

    Bril was an absolute poppet-he's never been across that side of town before or onto the meadow, but he is a gem hacking out and goes where you ask without question We met loads of cyclists and jogger (it's oxford), lots of small children, plus rowers, cows, buses, crossed a wobbly rattly bridge over a train line and crossed over a canal, and then met a fire engine pumping water from the river. We went splish splashing in a different river too I'd be lying if I said he didn't care about any of those things, but was polite and well behaved and tried his best to be brave

    Nearly home- our local hacking is well overgrown


    And being cute in the field




    Also he has decided that rolling on the way to his turnout field provides additional eating oppurtunities...
