There is NO way I would have ever gotten that one...good thing I gave up when I did. I think we all could have used a hint.

I loved it though!

Great Job!!!

You could look the words up, but I'll save you the trouble. Maunder -- to wander aimlessly, either in speaking or walking; pastern -- the part of a horse's anatomy between the fetlock and the hoof.

I got onto the MA & PA trail directly but I had to look up the meanings of maunder and pastern to sort those out. Not bad at all.
