    Default I don't think the water hazard will be a problem

    That's Seven standing in the first shot and lying down in the second.

    I'm so happy the barn owners were able to get pictures!

    Shhhhhhhh. Don't tell me that. Let me live in ignorant bliss for a little while longer

    (She's only two, and unstarted, so it will be awhile before I have to face the real question of riding her into water!)

    If she likes lying down in the water, you may want to be ready to keep kicking!

    Years ago, one summer, I worked as a wrangler in the Catskills, taking out trail rides. There was a fat old App who loved to lie down in the pond as we passed through. We would have to be sure to stay close to him as we did the water crossing and scream to the poor tourists sitting on him to kick, kick, kick. You could just see old Puzzles smiling as his front knees would start to buckle on a hot day .
