jamesqf - I am actually in New Mexico! Its just the cottonwood trees that are turning yellow right now and only by the river. It is sure nice but I want to see the fall colors in the Northeast with all the reds and oranges that would be amazing.

Zexious - We don't normally get snow. Last year we didn't get any at all. I would love to go on a snow ride maybe this year!

Yup I get along just fine with a dumb phone that cost about $20 to buy, and $7/month. And I wouldn't have got that if the phone company hadn't raised the cost of a land line to over $30/month.

I have a similar one that I use for wallet and camera when riding. Don't usually carry a cell phone, as most of the places we ride don't have service.

This is the third phone that I have lost horseback riding. I never lose anything generally speaking so this really chaps my backside.
Maybe someone is trying to tell you something? I have the same problem with sunglasses... Though I just had a thought: if the NSA and such can tap into your smart phone's GPS to locate you, why couldn't a phone owner do that to locate their lost phone?

58.03 Miles so far!

Went for an afternoon ride today 12.9 miles! An old horsey friend from high school went with me and rode Gus. We sure had a good time today, it was so much fun.

We ran into a pack of four coyotes. I see one or two all the time but they usually run away pretty quick. These were so not spooked. I have never seen them so tame before! They were not afraid at all. We followed them for about 10 or so minuets. I was more surprised how interested and not scared at all Roux was with them. They were the mangiest coyotes I have ever seen, they had big patches of fur missing they were small and skinny. I think they must have been young ones and didn't know any better then to be curious about us. We were joking since we both like to go fox hunting (but around here we run after coyotes not foxes) that we were the best fox hunters since we tracked down four without even trying. It is even funnier since when we ride with the actual hunt we almost never see a coyote (we think someone give them our schedule).

We even did some easy jumping when we found things to jump. Gus was amazing so graceful and knew what he was doing. Roux obviously hasn't done much jumping. He didn't refuse any of them but he over jumped everything, it will be something fun for us to practice doing!





My Grand Total is 58.03 Miles so far!

4 coyotes would make me nervous, if they decided to attack, that is a decent size pack.

If I was on foot I might have been more concerned. On horse back I was comfortable. Coyotes arnt prone to attack anyway.

I have seen coyotes in Tyrrell Park twice. Once was so mangy looking it was pitiful. I saw two in the back of the ranch one day which is only about 200 yards from my horses so I am sure they are all over the ranch at night even though there are people all around there.

Four might have given me a little pause though!

I have never seen a coyote that would approach a horse. As long as they are not rabid, there should be no problem.

Roux, what awesome photos! We have coyotes in the areas that I used to board here in CO. It was always a bit unnerving to hear them at night, leading the horse back to his paddock or walking to the car xD

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

I've always liked Mark Twain's description of a coyote:
Quote:
The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him, and even the fleas would desert him for a velocipede.
