4th of July Trail Ride

Had a wonderful trail ride this morning! What a great way to spend a good part of a holiday...

It's hot, but by taking the wooded trail and being 90% in the shade, it was not uncomfortable at all. Saw one nice sized deer....

When we got back, my horse seemed to really enjoy his cool rinse-off and he particularly enjoys a cool drink from the hose! I was also delighted to see him drink 2/3 of a bucket of water after getting back to his stall.

It was a delightful morning!

Anybody else enjoy a holiday ride today?

I joined some new friends and had a great ride up at Payson Lake. About 8000 foot elevation, So temps were not bad. Deer flies in a few places were though.

Oh good grief! I should'a taken photos! I guess I was having such a good time I never thought of it....

I seem to tend to think of taking photos more often when I'm riding by myself. I guess I get to visiting with other riders and forget about it....

...so a horse walks into a bar and the bar tender says "why the long face?"...

Sounds like ya'll had fun! That's what I wished I had been doing...sigh :p

Sky, did your family still BBQ and shoot off fireworks? Or would that be awkward? Or is it winter there? I don't know much about NZ, clearly. Lol

It is winter. Your autumn is our spring, and our summer begins in December :P But no it was the most lazy day ever. We were so exhausted that we didn't really do anything except watch movies all day. It wasn't much of a 4th.

We rode both on the 4th and today. It was really nice. In the evening, we went to our community fireworks show. Our county has the best free fire works show for many miles around and we get several thousand people. Our county has a population of about 5,000. I'm sure not all of them go, but we get a lot of people from other areas. They had a pretty good little rock-n-roll cover band. We listened to them until they did "Brown Eyed Girl" which was beyond my tolerance for copies of old tunes. I am much more into original music or unique music. It was a fun weekend.
