    Painted Horse those are gorgeous pictures! Oh MY I would get off and lead down that too. Ugh. I would be scared stiff riding down that as you said - one slip and disaster could ensue.

    Dawn, glad y'all had a great ride and so glad George is doing better!

    Well, I didn't get to ride yesterday, but my HORSES did!!! A friend brought her 2 daughters and their friend over, all experienced horse girls, but they had never ridden Arabians or Clydesdales! So we saddle up Tootsie (in my avatar), her mother Penny, and Debbie Bell, the Clyde. They had a BLAST, even though it was a bit muddy. They would go up into the woods, and when they would get back, all be on a different horse! Then the girl across the street came over, (turns out they are ALL friends from school) and so I saddled up Chance, and they ALL went down the road.

    Turns out, I am one western saddle pad short, so I have to go find one....darn.
    And, I bought a new saddle, with a narrower tree, to fit my narrow shouldered Arabian sisters. It is a Henry Miller Buena Vista, and I have been eyeing it for about a year, but it looked so narrow, LOL. Then I started working Lucy and Alaska, and the western saddles were sliding up on their shoulders. What a good excuse!! I think it fits the new TWH, too.

    I've googled Robbers Roost...lots of history in that area. I read they built cabins in there..... What's left of the camp anything?

    I'd love to have the UTM coordinates....and a look at the gps track logs.....This must be close to the the four corners area? Is it close to the place Louis Lamour wrote about in The Haunted Mesa?

    Fascinating area, ruggedly beautiful....loaded with history....looks like a great place to explore on horseback....

    I'm thinking about going out to Nevada to help my mother with some horses. I've never been off the east coast and I'd have to go without Bloo so I'm a little torn about going. My mother owns 120 acres of land and someone went and dumped 4 horses on her property. Three are green broke and she can handle and work with them. The fourth is completely wild, untouched, and way too much for her to handle so she's asked me to go out. But I'd have to go without Bloo because I don't know their medical history and I'd only be out there for a few months. It's not worth risking his health if they haven't been vetted and a three day trailer ride.
    I want to go but I've never been away from Bloo for that long before. It's like leaving my child behind. And to complicate matters even more I'm already in love with the fourth horse so I'd probably take him home with me. I'm pretty sure that was my mother's plan the whole time. I'm a bleeding heart when it comes to any animal that no one else loves or wants. That's why I ended up with the menagerie I've got now.

    In other news, Bloo decided he wanted to play with the babies and managed to unlock his gate, letting 4 other horses out, before running around the baby pasture. He somehow managed to crack his hoof so I've got to wait for the farrier to come out and see if it needs to be stapled/sewn or if I can just putty and boot it. Aguti has an overnight camping trip coming up so I'm working hard on getting her ready for it. She's good with the dogs now and didn't bat an eye walking over bubble wrap or by a fire. I had the kids hide on one of the barn trails with a bunch of different different things and drop them or jump out at us as I rode by. It was only about half a mile ride but I'm still counting it! And I can safely say Aguti's as close to bombproof as I could ever get her. We just have to work on high lining and hobbling.

    432.8 miles to date.

    BlooBabe,

    Do you think you would have a place for Drambuie? Or know of a safe home for him? Since you are a bleeding heart especially when it comes to horses...

    Gunslinger, I tried using my iPhone with EveryTrail to track my route and it was a total failure. There absolutely is no signal out in that area. My phone was searching for signal all day and really consumed it's battery, so it shut down before I was done riding. Also I must have bumped the pause button some where along the ride, So I had to draw in a few of the lines vs the gps tracks. But you can see some of what I was able to capture at:

    It was 33 miles of dirt road once we left the hiway. It took an 1 hour and 20 minutes to drive that 33 miles.

    Anita I was totally thinking about taking Drambuie when I read about your situation. If there was an open stall at the barn I probably would have already offered but there won't have an open stall until at least the end of summer and I'm pretty sure I'll end up bringing Cowboy home with me.
    I always get horses the 'wrong way' falling in love with them before I know anything about them. But I've have lucked out with amazing horses without trying too hard. I have a feeling I won't have that kind of luck with Cowboy though and he'll throw me through the wringer.

    Bloo, I wonder if you could take him to your mother's with you since she has a nice big spread. For that matter, if I were you I might just load up Bloo, drop by and pick up Drambuie, and move in with mom. It sounds like she has a nice set up. Mothers are so giving and kind..........
