Finally I got a picture of Cimarron to share with you all. Sorry for the poor quality. He's a cutie though.

I was finally able to get out of my driveway today. It was so nice to see the outside world again. And the sun was shining too. An absolutely beautiful day.

I spent some time on ground work and warm-up with Cimarron. He's a pretty high energy guy. He's also pretty spooky and goosy in the arena, but then we went for a walk around the neighborhood and he didn't act silly at all. He did have his good buddy leading the way though, and I think that makes a difference.

We were going to go ride the area we'd just walked, but I ran out of time. I did get in a little riding. He's going to need a lot of work on softening, but he's a pretty good boy.

I can go up there and ride any time I want to. I had been really looking forward to having him here at home but then the mountains of snow came. And actually I really like the idea of an indoor arena with dry footing to ride in. So it's a good thing.

I took this picture a while ago and forgot about it. Yes, it is a vending machine where you can buy nightcrawlers and other live bait. There was another one next to it that wasn't out of order. Only in Idaho. :)

That's hilarious. Never heard of one and I'm from Idaho! I like the looks of Cimmaron, and I think it's a good idea to ride at the arena for now. Sounds perfect.
