Day 32, 6th June
The day continued very well, we were on well-planned all small roads with hardly any traffic and entered the Lake District via Newby Bridge mid afternoon. There had already been some lovely views beforehand, but it was nice to actually be “inside”.
They told me he should have had his hooves trimmed that morning, but the blacksmith had not turned up, so I was really pleased to be able to make myself and my tools useful by doing his hooves myself. Dan, the pony, looked a lot better afterwards and I suppose it was just bad luck to the unreliable blacksmith for not coming when he said he would.
