Ride into the sunset and klutz
With about a half an hour to spare of sunlight, I decided to grab Badger and go for a jaunt.
The air was warm and the snow was melting. A bareback ride seemed in order after all I wasn't really going to go too very far. Just a bit of 'trekking' in the woods on the deer trails and perhaps the long way around to get the mail.
He was willing and I was able.
So off we went.
We eventually ended up on our gravel road and headed out to watch the sun set.
Of course the photos aren't very great...but the fun we had was.
And after all, what kind of sunset would it be if it didn't have mule ears in it???
Oh the fun and embarrassing part happened after this wonderful exhilarating ride. [yeah we loped!]
I put Badger away as the dusk started to close in on us. The skies were turning purple and the temps were dropping rapidly.
The driveway in front of our house had melted considerably during the day. What I didn't realize when I walked between the vehicles...is that that MELT had turned to glare ice.
It is embarrassing to say the least.
I don't bounce like I used to.
In fact I did a dive.
Bent my glasses, chipped a tooth, whacked my head,
bruised up a lot of pieces and parts...
But did not break anything.
What a glorious way to end a near perfect day.
