    Fathers Day

    Anybody besides me have their sights set on a Father's Day trail ride?

    Since our children are living far away, that would be my choice for how to spend the late afternoon... I mean, he may have four legs instead of two, but he's still my boy!

    Yes sir, for fathers day we're headed to the Chattahoochee National Forest in the Cohutta wildlife management area to ride the Sumac Creek Trail which is just a mile or so left of the Cohutta wilderness area.

    Kids and grandkids are moved away, so hey! Time to ride!

    Now that sounds like a great Fathers Day! Hope all goes well...

    I'm just hoping for a nice late afternoon ride on the trails we have where we board. A nice bonus would be to avoid the deer flies... Can't wait for that season to end.

    Hope your weather is great!

    The weather and the ride was great. Got on the trail about 8 am, had lunch by sumac creek, and back to the truck at 2pm, or just about the time it started getting hot. Rode 14 miles.....

    Got home, hosed the horses down, now waiting on the ribs to come off the grill.

    Hope you had a good ride too sir!

    That sounds wonderful! So glad it went well...

    I'm counting on an early evening ride in a little while....

    Hope all the fathers on the forum have had a fine day!

    What a wonderful Fathers Day ride!

    Went for a short trail ride (by ourselves), came back across the levee and saw a great sunset across the lake, wound up in the arena doing some light reining practice and just had an overall wonderful time!

    Gave my horse a cool rinse, fresh water and a couple of Mrs Pastures Horse Cookies for doing such a good job of his reining moves (and just for being such a fine companion)....

    I'm thankful.....it was a wonderful evening!

    Our kids are grown and live about 10 hours away...so we have time to ride! We did just an hour, hour and a half ride because I'd had some minor surgery on Thursday and really didn't want to push it. The weather was wonderful, in the mid 70's and the trails were great. We even got in a few "training moments" when Mr. Big Stuff decided he knew which way we wanted to go. We ride out at Fant's Grove so often that he has the trails about memorized and always knows which of two choices is the most direct way back! LOL
    He's a ton of fun to ride, and you never need to be afraid of getting lost! ROFLMAO

    I had been out of town for 3 weeks so spent most of Father's day at my parents. Only got a quick ride in the evening.
