|The stream that I went fishing in.|
I stopped to do some fishing in the stream and realized it could be very easy to get lost there.Ten feet away from the trail, and I couldn't see it. (I could see Sunny standing there, waiting for me to come back.) There were several times, I felt like if I didn't have the trail, I wouldn't know which way was which. It amazed me that Sunny always knew which way would take us back to the trailer.
When the trail started to loop around, I knew the INSTANT that the shortest path back to the trailer was to go forward. He picked up the pace quite a bit. He'd never been on this trail, but he knew.
I've seen horses get lost, because they know which way they want to go, but can't find their way around obstacles (canyons, rivers, fences). Combine his amazing sense of direction and his willingness with my ability to plan ahead and reason, and I think we make a great pair.
