Back in the Saddle Once More   6 comments

We’re in for a (comparatively) cool week, and the dogs, Kitty, and I are taking advantage of it.  It was still in the seventies when I saddled up and headed out.  We didn’t go far — none of the four of us are in working shape — but we did have a good time.  Here are some pictures to prove it.

The place is looking good.  The haystacks in the background give me a warm feeling.  We’re ready for the winter.

Peaches really enjoyed herself.  She hasn’t been allowed to go along while the weather was hot.

Here’s the usual shot between Kitty’s ears.  I think she’s watching those other horses eat, and thinking, “Where’s mine?”

This is a “Woops!” shot.

I put my finger right in front of the little corn patch I was aiming for.

After wandering around the ranch, we crossed the river to Rancho Rio and cruised around for a while, just visiting.  That was enough for one day.

Here are Kitty and Peaches conferring, after the ride.  I hope that they are saying they’d like to do it again soon.  We need to — Kitty has gotten positively tubby.

And she’s not the only one.  I certainly can’t talk.

It’s going to be a perfect week for riding, and every cool day puts us closer to fall and the end of the heat.    There’ll be more hot days — but the end is in sight!

  1. Thanks for your blog posts. I live in So Cal and enjoy reading how the weather is in your area, and horse, dog news etc Being a fellow horse owner, dog owner and trail rider.

  2. I was looking at the temperature and thinking Should I go to work? Or go riding? Being the responsible person I went to work. But I’m sure looking forward to some cool fall like rides.
