Quiet, Hazy Day Ride~

Farah hears some;thing :-)
Butch was busy at home,  I managed to squeeze in another ride with Lynn.  This time at Lord Hill.  The day started out sunny, but within a short while, we could actually see a haze move across the trails.  Very high humidity too, with the river so close.  It didn't take much trotting to work up a sweat.  There were families hiking on the trails, ladies walking, more people on foot than we'd seen in a while there.
At the River~
We headed down to the river, thinking that we'd all cool off, but the "beach" was still under water!  It was Aug. last year last time I'd been here with Lynn & we'd waded the horses in - so still a month or so to go.
Our Route~
Covering most of the park, we rode about ten-miles & called it good.  I've about worn this set of shoes off Farah's feet.  Called the farrier to ask about moving our scheduled appointment up a week.  Fingers crossed he'll fit us in! 


  1. Did you wear those shoes out in one setting!? I barely got one reset out of C's last set of shoes(shod at 6 week increments) and it sounds like you ride quite a bit more that I do.

  2. Yes, in under four-weeks! Looks like I have enough foot. Good to hear from you again!


Always Welcome~
