Took Bugs for an outing this evening in preperation for tomorrows trek. Only 60 horses tomorrow a good number.

Back to todays photos just a few shots of the general cattle country we rode over, and looking out over the Tasman sea Australia is 1200 miles across that ditch. The age of the riders 71yrs, 64 and 56. Im hitched to the young one.

You will notice how sun burnt the land is, now becoming a fire danger.

Cheers all. Ill get some photos of the trek providing Bugs does not play up. But he did go well today.

Stan you are an idiot, but I think I'd like to have your babies.

There is a song, an australian song, called never let a chance go by. On this ocassion I'm reversing the trend and stealing it This is the over 40 thread, not over the hill.

Now its 07-00am Saturday morning and time to get my gear together, load bugs and spend the day riding some forest and hill areas. NO snow just thought i'd throw that one in. Sorry.

Today is a very sad day at my home.. We had to put to sleep one of my border collies. Cavin was only 3 1/2 he and his sister came to me at only 4 days old.
They were rescues the had livers that were to small for there bodies and he was very very sick. He was not eating and had lost over half his needed body weight. I can't stop crying I and is sister grace will miss him so much. Here is a picture of what he loved to do.. he loved to wave hi.




Here is his sister Gracie helping me at the barn with chores.


Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse

CW, glad to hear you're taking care of yourself.

Stan, you are incorrigible. I think that's related to 'kiwi' .... I loved your post. The perspective on aging was brilliant, and the pics of the countryside were awesome. How beautiful! Hoping you are having a great trek today.

Hunter, sorry for your bad run of luck. I hope that Hunter heals up quickly. In the meantime, a 4 year old gelding is like a 14 year old male....they outgrow it. I thought I'd have to sell mine (gelding, not son!) but by 5 he had straightened out a bit and is fairly mannerly now. Still tests me once in a while...

Critter, so sorry for your loss of your little BC guy. He was a lucky fella to have you rescue him and I'm sure he knew it and loved you for it...
