We've been having all the fun lately.
Juniper wants to make sure she doesn't get left out.
Ariel and I have been riding a lot. I'm so glad she has time to ride with me! Sometimes she rides Sawyer and I ride Scout, and then I appreciate Sawyer all the more. Scout is a bit of a klutz, and needs to watch his feet rather than looking for boogey-men and spooking at tweety birds.
We also went for a hike and looked at flowers and found a few morel mushrooms.
Back to our hike. I love this little hidden creek. We've ridden along it a thousand times but never gone into the trees to check it out because the horses don't fit in there.
I let Winston hike off leash and he actually stayed with us! He didn't get stubborn and stay with a pile of gross bones or anything. Here he is happily perched over a rotten deer leg, but ready to move it we try to take it.
I just liked this picture of Bella. She wanted food. She's obviously starving. I think she needs to live with the donkeys. Pretty much everyone except Sawyer and maybe Scout needs to be on a diet.
We went on a camping trip to my sister's favorite place in the world over the long weekend. We were going to scatter her ashes but my brother-in-law broke his pelvis and dislocated his hip (and he's still on the tractor every day!) so he can't walk well enough to get to the aspen grove she loved.
There's a cattleman's association that has corrals out there and they don't mind of we use them, as long as they don't need them. The cows weren't out yet, and the boys enjoyed having a comfortable place to sleep.
Buster sure is an explorer!
Liam and Sawyer look so good together.
This meadow. Oh my. I wish my camera had picked it up better. The purple camas flowers in the grass... The aspens. Wow.
The guys, trying to coordinate their guys for a photo. They look good!
After we got home Ariel and I went for another ride. She finally found a farrier foe her horse, Cowboy, and got some shoes put on, but one came off after our ride. :(
Her dog and my horse look great together. :)
Cowboy isn't a big fan of having his picture taken, but at least his ears aren't back in this one!
They look good together. :)
This weekend I'm headed to Mule Mania in Dayton, WA. I can't wait! I hope they have plenty of donkeys there. Maybe next year I'll take my longears. Although I suspect I'd rather be in the mountains than showing.
