The sun was shining early this morning. I'd hoped to ride with a friend, but the timing didn't work out. I'd been wanting to check out the Cloverdale area on the Whitehorse Trail for a while, so figured today would work.
|Lots a knots!|
|Dead trees now falling~|
|Checking out the cattle!|
|Rain moves in~|
We were getting wet & turned back, picking up the pace. Then - before I knew it - Farah was running away with me! I asked her to slow - which was about all I could do, but no - she went into overdrive! The wind caught under the bill on my helmet, it blew back far enough that the chin strap was choking me. I was pulling back as hard as I could - tried to turn her head, but with the halter - that was all in vane. Her attitude was; "Sit down, hang on & let me REALLY show you what I can do!" :-) As she slowed, which I knew she would - she was roundly cussed out! When I downloaded our ride, her top speed showed at 26.8 - definitely fast!
Dean wanted me to wait to mid-March for this years vaccinations. Once home, I called & got her on his schedule for Monday. Usually I dread that - but this time I'm kind of looking forward to it :-)
