Isn't that the truth Missy? I enjoy my horses for the sheer joy that they are mine!
Y'all need to come riding with me sometimes. You will see that the alligators haven't ate any of us and the spiders are a training opportunity - LOL you have to know how to side pass pretty dang good at times to play spider polo!!!
Gaaaaaaa....my cousin and I were riding yesterday and thought the spiders were all gone for the year. We saw a huge one at saddle level in a big web but it was off to the side so I left the old girl alone. Normally I give them a job...I take down their web!!
I am an eco-friendly rider, if I saw a huge web w a huge spider, I would just run.
Only a fellow trail rider would appreciate this...a trail riding buddy found a natural "arena" type formation...big bowl formed by hills in the mountains, w fine dirt in the "bottom" of the bowl...nothing else, no rocks, cactus, nada. If headed that way, we stop there and "train" for a few...sidepassing duels and all. The things that can amuse a trail rider!
