    thanks Anita Ann - I know it is just the circle of life.

    I ran out to Tyrrell Park awhile ago to deliver a chocolate cake to the guy that is making new trails for us. We grew up in the same neighborhood but I hadn't seen him since jr. High til we met out at the park. I showed him a picture of the trails as they are now with the new trail added

    And he said "and what is your wish list" and I whipped this one out

    He is going to try to add us in new trails which will be nice to have. I went out to see Biscuit and Sarge in a pouring rain. They were under their shelter but come out at a run when they saw I had treats They can put a smile on my face no matter what which is wonderful. I hugged them up and passed out handfuls of alfalfa pellets. When I walked off they ran back to their shelter. No sense standing in the rain for nothing!

    Had a similar problem on my ride this weekend. Brought some of my homemade fruit leather as a snack for the other two humans, but about half wound up in the horses

    Haha I bet Selena would LOVE some of your homemade fruit leather. I figure as long as they're still willing to eat she can have whatever. Who needs to diet when your horse will help you cut calories!

    Kinda funny to see, too. Usually when we stop for a break, the horses just stand around, maybe graze a bit if there's grass. This time I got out the baggie of fruit leather, and suddenly had three horses gathered around me asking for a piece.

    PS: It's not at all hard to make, if you have fruit trees that have more fruit than you can eat fresh. (I have 3 pear trees about 40 ft tall, and some years will have tons of fruit.) Just core the pears, cutting out any bad spots (it's ok to use windfalls), puree them in a blender, and pour a thin layer on to a cookie sheet covered with plastic wrap. Then put the sheets in your car, and park it in the sun with the windows rolled up and a bit of cheesecloth or similar over the top. In a day or two you'll have leather.

    That is great, thanks. May I suggest that one must be careful not to do this in a car with air toxifiers! Corporate calls them air fresheners.

    Will have to try that James! Sounds like your horses are like guppies after a treat. That is what I call Biscuit and Elan when they are gobbling up treats after Kellie and I ride.

    I bet you could make the fruit leather by putting it in the oven on a low temp overnight or so. Hummmm....will check that out!

    Or you could use a dehydrator. We make dried apples that way.

    Sure, and in fact that's the usual way. But making it in the car (if you live where it's sunny) doesn't use electricity or gas. I'm actually going to build (or rather finish building) a solar dehydrator one of these day. Just got too many projects, not enough time.
