first of all–it rained! REAL rain, as demonstrated by the shed: 3 mares deep and no squealing. REAL rain. (and look at the size of 2 yr old Rory in front..)
I am a better and happier person when I ride, and riding I have been! My good ole LD buddy Blaze, approximately 20 this year, has stepped back up to into his riding Renegades (he’s going great in Vipers as well as Originals, by the way). He’s done about 15 steady miles in the last 8 days after months off due to no fault of his own, and he’s been peppier after each ride.
you’re never too old to stare down sticks in the trail

Sheza time..she used to fit in the tack room better

Expressing herself 😉

recently Rory mysteriously tore up her face, coz she’s RC like that..and likes corn
and our bantam hens grew up and went to work!
Meanwhile, the donations for our Valley Fire drive have been pouring in. This is less than half of what I’ll end up with, and a truck load has already been delivered to our Lake County friends from our coastal end!
Thank you so much everyone for your efforts, we pulled together tack from Nevada to Sacramento to Eureka and riders from across the country have also mailed boxes of tack and kindly donated gift certificates. This is such a great display of heart by the horse community near and far and I am proud to know you all.
Keep riding, keep grinning, keep dreaming everyone!
