Racing the Rain Pictures!!
Excuse the 2 part post and it being a day apart as well!! I did upload some pictures the first time but it didn't work and I didn't want to edit the original post because I hate fighting with picture placement!
Here is what I was talking about with regards to Linus roaning. This picture is high on his rump but he has it almost everywhere!
The fall colours in our bush. Taken from our cow pasture. The pasture ends at the bush and we have to test the fence daily because of deer and even turkeys flying through it!
I love this time of year!
On a clear and sunny day the vines climbing these trees look so bright that it is almost an illusion
I made 2 pink saddle blankets (for on top of regular one, they aren't that thick!) just in case I actually do get to do the charity ride next Sunday. It is called the "Pink Ribbon Ride" and I had to do something because I do not own any pink clothes!! (Sorry Krista and Sassy)
I couldn't get any of the breast cancer fabric so I just got pink and added a couple of personal touches to it!
Bernie thought it was a pretty awesome idea since she also does not own any pink clothes!
By no means a very professional job but not bad I think! Big embroidery machines are big bucks!
Bernie and I did not get the chance to try our boys together on a ride today because the weather was so miserable! The sun came out for about 10 minutes at 5pm! It is supposed to be a pretty fair week of weather so maybe we will get to try it this week. I really want to give it a whirl before I decide to load and go! Linus has never ridden out with another horse before. He and Lucas did meet on one occasion, they exchange horsey pleasantries and that was that. They are both pretty ho-hum fellas. Linus and I have to register as a "green" team because he is under 6 years old. I learned today that the trail is about 8km. Possibly give or take a bit depending on potential detours due to conditions.
