Friday last week was a glorious, glorious day. I got to run around in a long-sleeved t-shirt, down vest, and was finally able to shed the Carhartts! Of course you can’t tempt a cowgirl with sunny weather, someone else around to do chores, and expect her NOT to ride! And that is what I did. I caught my favorite gelding Gump (but don’t tell his little brother Dino, my old horse Zero, my crippled barrel horse Pitstop, or any of my mares that Gump is my favorite) and took him for a spin. We trotted down the road, caught a glimpse of most of the mare herd and otherwise enjoyed ourselves. I even gave him some oats when I was finished. He loves oats! I snapped a couple minutes of video of some of the saddle horses when I went through the gate to catch Gump. We had another surprise last week, but that’s a story for another time.
