I just love the picture below. Someone on Facebook commented it looks like he is folding his hooves and saying a little prayer before he drinks, haha! I was thinking he was clicking his heels together in hopes of whirling back to his paddock and avoiding the workout that was to come. Either way, he is very cute and like I said, not the best with his front feet…Yes, he is standing *on* himself, he does that sometimes.

You can hardly see the neck for the winter coat!
We did the same 10 mile loop Desire and I did with N on Saturday, but Blaze and I cut an hour off the time without even planning to, just having a good time and some nice trots out on the beautiful fall lake trails.
There is a night of rain forecast tomorrow but otherwise lots of sunny, cool, ideal riding weather in the forecast. I’ve been having lots of familial drama in the last month but my mom is finally able to break free from her coastal obligations and come visit later this week, so I’ve taken her up on that opportunity instead of going to the Lake Sonoma ride this weekend. I was pretty ambivalent about Lake Sonoma to begin with and sometimes you just need to spend some time supporting and enjoying family. There *are* some rumblings of a redhead Death Valley adventure in December, however! Stay tuned.
