Duffy and Me   1 comment

Friend and boarder Lori B. happened to be here when I went out to ride Duffy, so she got some pictures. Here are a few of the best.

Before I saddled up, Duffy had a resigned expression.  I’m sure he was thinking, “Oh no!  Not again!”

I wanted a picture of Duffy gaiting, and that’s not easy to catch.  Here he’s just doing a nice walk.

Even fifty pounds lighter than a couple of years ago, I still fill up that saddle pretty much . . . sigh.  At least I can ride it now, though it’s built for a slim person.

Here he is gaiting, but not a good clean foxtrot.  It’s a little pacey, but three feet are touching the ground, so it’s not a true pace.  It felt pretty good.

I’ve always thought of Duffy as a rather homely horse, but in summer coat and under saddle he looks pretty darned good.  And it was a beautiful day for a ride; just look at that blue sky.  The temperature was still in the seventies.

And I’m seventy years old, and still in the saddle.  Life is good.
