One of the other ladies was just off of her horse and bless her heart she is terrified of the hogs. She was saying the other day that she actually jumped on her horse without the aid of her stirrup. That is too funny because we are not kids - we are chunky bunky 50+ year old ladies who for the most part use a mounting block to get on!!!
I am very terrified of those feral things, good thing the Javelina don't get quite that big, they're a little bit less scary than those hogzilla types.
I'm with that lady, I FLEW to the top of 4T of Alfalfa bales, they were stacked up HIGH. I have absolutely no recollection of touching a single one in my hurry to get away from momma piggy!
I'm like you guys, 50+, no longer svelte and a little beat up, so the mounting block and a very steady horse is the only way I get to keep riding. My husband could NOT figure out how I got up to the top of the hay at all, let alone so fast! LOL! Adrenaline is amazing stuff!
