|Our 20-mile ride~|
|Small, pretty, horse farm~|
We cruised along at a moderate pace, the morning was overcast & cool - so perfect summer riding weather. We ran into a place with "closed-trail" signs- men working on a drainage basin that was almost finished & full of water. They were putting down straw to stop erosion until the grass could grow. We asked if we could go around the trucks & as we did, Farah - seeing a bale of straw - just HAD to take a bite! She even ate it! I think it would take some pretty harsh conditions for this mare to starve in the wild :-)
Out just about four-hours, we ran into friends, had a good chat & an even better ride! Lynn has become such a popular riding partner that I feel lucky when she squeaks in a ride with me! We covered a fraction under 20-miles in four hours.
