Finally got some more saddle time yesterday. I pulled in the driveway and took one look at the trailer then thought to myself, NO!. Went out to the pasture, haltered Trusty and headed for the house. Got him brushed down, saddled, bridled and soaked with fly spray before walking him around the yard a few laps to get the air out of him so I could finish cinching him down.
Went for a nice little 3.7 mile roam around the neighborhood and got some good work out in the deep ditches as we climbed up and down them their entire length. Oh he was nice and sweaty by the time we got to the other end where we turn to go back towards the house.
My phone camera does not do well to take pics with shaking hands. Lol That is Hwy 231 to the right and I'm happy to say he never even paid the cars and trucks any attention as they flew by coming towards us. He did get a little huffy at the 3 deer that jumped out of the bushes and headed for cover on the other side of the ditch from us. Side stepped once then grunted, huffed and puffed at them for not giving him a warning then right back to looking forward. Lol
OG, sounds like its going to be a very interesting trip. Take some pics for us cause you know we all like pics..lol
