This time of year, with it so miserably hot, is the time of year we rest our horses......
My mare lacy goes barefooted all year round.
Sonny, my wife's' quarter horse, has really soft hooves, so we took his shoes off and plan to put them back on in late August.
No riding for us (except for short rides around the pasture) until September.
We plan to start riding again on labor day, and have a trip planned to Cataloochee mid september.
Can't wait for fall, it's my favorite time of year.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
