Carrots....humph...I don't knowmhowmpeople get so many! I've never had more than THREE! Someone keeps stealing them...
Had a beautiful rode this morning.
. Pretty bad when the horse is braver than the rider!! Haha went down a new road today. Never sure what you might find.....as we rode I heard roosters, and smelled animals. Up over the top of the rise I can see a building....not sure if its in habated. The further we go, I can now see that yes, it is a home....quite delapitated and stuff strun about the heard. A barn with goats and the roosters crowing grows closer. I sit deeper in my saddle, Jay slows his steps in response to my riding. My biggest fear is that a dog or other animal will come darting out at us, causing jay to spook. I've had this happen in the past before. I never trust back road homes...so many people let their dogs run lose. My gut said turn around, so I did, but if I would have let him....Jay would have kept going. My brave boy!
This got me thinking....all the things horses are exposed to on the trail. Today we spooked up 5 deer, passed at least 6 Amish buggies going to church, a giant fish mailbox and car tires hanging from a fence post.....
So tell me....what are some strange/unusual things you've encountered on your tides?
As a bonus, Jay found an ancient apple tree along the road. We stopped and both had a fresh treat!
Loving all the fun here! You guys make me smile!!
Have a great and hopefully quiet Sunday!!
