Ray and I took Penguin Beware and Lil Kay to the Kettle Moraine Southern Unit for the Glacier Trails competitive trail drive. The day was a very mixed bag, weatherwise. We had sunshine, clouds, rain, hail, and a lot of wind. The temps were in the 50’s, but with the wind, it seemed much colder.

This was Lil Kay’s first drive, and overall, she did pretty well. She is not fond of puddles, but is willing to follow Penguin through them. We had Penguin lead on the way out, and Lil Kay on the way back. We were doing well until she got to a big puddle, and she skidded to a stop. Penguin, as usual, was following pretty close, and ran into the back of my cart. He was fine, and we had him go through the puddle first so Kay would go.

The trails were mostly damp, but there were some muddy stretches, especially on a few hills, so we tried to take it slow. We were supposed to finish at 1:00PM, and we finished at 12:58 so we timed it pretty well. Kay still doesn’t like to stand still for riders, and she will start backing if she gets frustrated. At one point she started back off the side of the trail, but luckily there was a big tree that she backed into, so we didn’t go too far. The rider was able to pass in front of her on the other side of the trail. Once the rider was gone, Kay was content to continue on.

If any fellow drivers have any suggestions on how to keep her from backing, please let me know.

Ray took first place, with a score of 377
I took second, with a score of 351. We lost ten points because Kay kicked at the vet when we checked in, but after 10 miles, she was much calmer.
