The trail less traveled

Freedom's Favorite Trail
Freedom will always take this trail if given the choice. I’ve never figured out exactly what appeals to him.

My barn is right on the trail system. We have some lovely wide trails and some smaller ones that meander through the woods and up over a small ridge.

The main trail leads to the fields and our town ring. It’s the route I take almost every time I ride. But the funny thing is that, given the choice, Freedom will always branch off and take the small trail that goes up into the woods.

Sometimes I let him choose the way we go; other times I insist that I am driving.

I’ve never figured out exactly why he chooses that particular trail and not any of the others that branch off from the main route, but he makes his preference clear.
