    Sweat, Dust and Leather! -Slapleather's Journal

    Today was awesome. Two horses...one after another..and five hours of exercise and adventure.

    First of all I took my 21 year old mare out for a trail ride, and then when we got back to the ranch yard the little 12-14 year old girls were riding around bareback as usual, so I joined them for some chasing and racing. My appy mare kept up just fine to a Standardbred 20 year old former race horse the one girl was riding. I was pleased and proud of my horse.

    So then I put her away and saddled up Gypsygirl and had another couple races with the girls, then took Gypsygirl out on the trail for another hour or so.

    It's great when you still have the energy and inspiration to ride two horses all day at age 53. I hope to grow even more healthy and fit, and able to ride all day long.

    I joked to one of the Ranch owners today where my horses are boarded, "it takes two horses to keep up with me!" I said. The young girls even quit before I did. It's good to be full of Life and two horses to share it with!

    Searching for the Horses

    It's always fun and adventurous now trying to find the horses in the back 200 acres. We walk in to the various meadows and can drive part of the way, then when we find them we lead them to a place where we can tie them up and saddle them. We of course bring the saddles and tack in the truck.

    Sometimes I tie my lasso across a coupe of trees as a hitching post.

    Ha, I love it, especially with the girl quitting before you did.
    Which mare is in the last picture? She's a cutie, I love that half asleep look on her face!

    Hi, sorry for taking so long. I'm out of town right now working. I don't have access to a computer too often. I will be back in a few days. I went trail riding at another ranch close by where working. I'm working at William's Lake BC Canada and the country is awesome to ride in. It is cowboy and cattle country. Anyway, talk to you later.
