    That will happen from time to time where they get the better of us on certain trails.

    I joined the local Foxtrotter club yesterday for a club ride. They rode the Mule Shoe and Mule Ear trails on Friday night and the Ben Lomond trail on Saturday. My phone battery went dead and the Every Trail program turned off at 7.3 miles. I'm sure Saturdays total ride was more like 11-12 miles if I add in the section that the phone did not track.





    It's a very green area with lots of wild flowers that were probably at their peak




    So with Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays ride I'm a little over 50 miles for the week and 560 miles for the year.

    Celeste, sorry PP showed up. Dang...

    Painted Horse - gorgeous scenery as always.

    Ok...update on The Biscuit. Barry and I went out to the barn around 8:00 AM. Biscuit was standing there at the gate with his head hanging over it watching us like we were his long lost friends. I think if he could have spoke it would have been "hey girlfrien', come on in and halter me up!!! Let's go!"

    Barry walked into the pen, petted his shoulder, picked up both front feet and put his halter on. Obviously standing in the heat and not much hay was not The Biscuit's idea of fun. We took him up to the front and I tied him in the small arena. It is covered but no breakfast for him. I had to run get a fuse changed in my trailer hitch thingy on my RAV and Biscuit stood there for 3.5 hours. When I drove up with the Brenderup his head was up and watching me. I got Sarge and then Biscuit. He was more than happy to hop in the trailer. He and Sarge were fed in the trailer. I hauled them to Ebenezer Park. Biscuit was a doll...just like he used to be.

    I ran and picked up my former horse, Red, and his new owner. She spent the night with us and rode with Barry and our group of friends. They rode Friday afternoon and Barry rode Biscuit to make sure he behaved with KD as he really hasn't been rode but 2 short 15-30 minute rides in the arena during the past 2 months. Barry said he was very good on the ride...Sarge had a nervous breakdown when they rode off though. He didn't like being left behind.

    The next morning they all rode out with KD on Biscuit. He was a doll about being tacked up - acted like he used to act. They rode down to the lake. KD said Biscuit pawed at the water so she took him out. She then walked him into the water so he could drink and without warning he plopped down in the water. He had done that with a friend Esther the first time I can ever remember even seeing him - he plopped down three times while I was taking pictures! KD had to pour water out of her boots.

    They made a second ride Saturday afternoon and then Barry and the group made one on Sunday. Biscuit didn't have a rider then so he stayed.

    I didn't have any problem with him this weekend but I still put him in the little arena when I arrived home. I took his halter off and turned him loose. He walked away from me and looked around. I walked towards him and he walked away for a while and then stopped. I haltered him and walked him around. I went back later to feed and did the same thing...haltered him to feed and then took it off and let him go. Then put it back on. I will work with him in the arena this week before he goes back to the pasture.

    My cousin and I think he was just out of his routine of me riding. Maybe so. Hoping he doesn't revert this week!

    I sympathize with Biscuit. I had two weeks off a while back. It was REALLY hard to go to work after that.

    I'm glad he is better. If you keep handling him, he'll be fine for sure.

    They Psycho Princess most likely appeared due to getting a bit of time off herself.

    That should have read "the" Psycho Princess. I can't type.

    Took a quick 20 minute ride around the pastures bareback on Trusty after working on him and a couple of the others on trailer loading.

    I truly enjoy looking at such great scenery you all get to experience in your area. I actually take my time looking at all the details in each pic just to soak it all in.

    Roadyy, My terrain varies a lot just depending on where on the mountain I'm riding. From dark forest under the Douglas Firs



    To the Alpine areas where we approach treeline


    And of course most trails start from the Sub Alpine areas below the Spruce and firs where we are in more the Scrub Oak and Mountain Maples

    Amazing. I know you ride it all the time, but please tell me you never get tired of it or lack the enjoyment every time you see it? I can't imagine ever getting bored riding in those places.

    Made it to Big South Fork, left out Friday afternoon as DW's girlfriend was able to borrow a cabin for the weekend. We rode the Cumberland Valley trail on Saturday, (14.2 miles) and Jack's Ridge Loop on Sunday, (8.1 miles).

    Dang it's hot and humid around 2 in the afternoon.

    238 miles on the year still short of the 250 before hot weather and 500 on the year......headed to Dry Creek GA next weekend....Need at least 12 miles this weekend and we'll probably spin it down till late August early September. Got a campsite at Cataloochee in the Smokeys the forth week of Septemeber so I hate to let the horses sit to long....

    Annita Ann, Rhonda Lynn, we're leaving here at the crack of dawn...not sure what time we'll be at the trail head but hope to be back at the trailer before 1pm......you're welcome to join us!
