Anyway, we've been having lots of fun hiking, riding, and recently we even went horse camping. That was a tough one, because it was the first time since Tonka had his accident while we were camping and ended up having to be euthanized. Scout was a very good boy on the high line though, and we all made it through unscathed.
The necessary pictorial evidence:
Bella did great on a 10 mile hike up and down a mountain. It was her first time with the panniers. She's one of the good ones.
Almost to the top:
Another good hike & ride. John really enjoys bringing Bella along. He's getting ready to climb Mt. Adams in a couple weeks.
Just a hike, no horses. I like my matched pair of dogs. :)
Winston helped me put up some temporary fence. He's so cute.
Rolling in the grass in a tree cave. It was HOT that day.
Scout on the high line.
He was so good. Got worried about a bad bull and did some circling, but other than that was a quiet boy. (The bull punched a little hole in my
sister's pickup grill and kept her trapped in there for a while. Seems like a bad one to have running loose on public land.)
Too many cherries! Anyone want to help me pit them all?
Sometimes I think sunshine was created solely to shine on my horse's mane. We had a very relaxing evening ride a couple days ago.
Winston loves the donkeys. I don't know why. I worry that he wants to bite their noses, but he doesn't. They tolerate him.
I guess I don't have many Luc pictures. He's looking good! I wormed him with Quest and he has a lot of good grass to eat 24/7, and he shed out and put on a bunch of weight. He is actually slightly chubby right now. I'm loving his summer color. I should try to get some pictures today.
