After a chilly weekend I'm glad to see the temps for the next few days will be nicer, there's still a little fall left.
Kimfer and I rode Friday. We met at the barn and rode down Old Dump Road (we call it that, not sure what the real name is). Its a gravel road, but fairly well travelled as it leads to a water station. Kimfer rode Isis and ponied Baron, he's been cleared for light riding so she's easing him back into work. I rode Applejack, I'm thinking of ponying Cessa off him in the future.
Just off ODR is some private land that is fairly well treed (little bushy trees, not big trees) and lots of trails. We call it Mini-Nesbit because it kinda reminds us of riding in Nesbit Forest (about an hour and a half drive north). Except MN doesn't have bear or moose, which is totally okay with us! lol
We did see a deer though. We had just come off the road and were in maybe 50 feet when I saw a good size doe having lunch in a little clearing. I stopped and started talking to Kimfer really loudly so the doe would take advantage of the moment and leave. Kimfer's filly was being a bit goofy and we didn't want to give her any excuses to act up.
Most of the leaves have turned and fallen, it was kinda ghostly riding through there. Made me wish I'd had my camera.
Sunday Pie & I brought our niece and nephew out to meet the horses, I do have pics of that day I will post in the future.
Yesterday was laundry/housework... and a nice soak in the hot tub with Pie when he got home from work.
**edited to add - hot tub being the 6-8 person, jetted kind that sits out on the deck. Perfect for drinks, relaxing and entertaining** :)
Today I have my Greek class (need to review my homework as soon as I post this!) and tomorrow is supposed to be very nice weather so I plan to ride. I need to get my fat little horse working again. The next three weekends are barrel racing, clinic and barrel racing.
