Heavy clouds, cool breeze~
I was very happy to be heading north today to meet-up with Linda for a ride. I was hoping that saddle time would help. There is the healing process that occurs whenever you lose someone - it takes time, lots of time & each day has to be taken at face value. Riding is invaluable to anyone who appreciates just how much good a big, warm, horse can do for our soul. Count did his best!
Count & Linda
Linda managed an almost smile & we enjoyed every mile. At least as long as Linda's phone didn't ring with another problem that she was supposed to solve for someone. Funny - when you need people to step up - it seems you end up giving them a hand anyway. Regardless - we caught up on the local news & enjoyed what ended up being a decent day. No rain!

As I took this photo - Linda reminded me that no indeed - this was not random browsing...
It's "Trail Clearing"! OH! That makes all the difference - it's your state-of-mind! What great horses we ride! Not only do they take us miles & miles - they clear trail! With all the use the trails that are supposed to be closed are getting - it's a good thing that someone is doing some clearing! :-)
Today - we enjoyed the Wild Cherry trees! Now in Full Bloom & smelling so sweet that they fill the air with their richness! This time of year it's as if Washington explodes with Green! You think this state is green - then comes Spring & you learn that what you thought was green - really wasn't!
