Magpie Laid Down
Sunday, 01 February 2009

Today I decided to try practise the figure eight pattern around two barrels with Polly, Magpie and Harley.

I started with Harley and it was slow going but we were making progress.

Harley was offering lots of answers to start with but not the answer to the question.
