As a birthday present Patty hired Milt to join me today in a drive with Merlin, me doing the lion's share of the actual driving. I was the one harnessing, fixing the bridle and bit, putting on the collar, adjusting hames and all the usual grunt work of preparing for the road. Patty was doing the same with Steele, taking her boy out in her large fancy meadowbrook cart while we used the forecart. It was a beautiful ride through the back roads and fields of Maple Lane farm. I got to hold those lines and work with my horse in a whole new way. It feels so great behind a horse in a cart, like how things are supposed to be. Made me want to write up another chapter of Birchthorn, get back in Anna and Lara's heads and Cambridge in 1918...
