The end of the day...
In my life there is seldom things that make me just go...
Tonight was one of those.
I rode Siera today.
No pictures for obvious reasons.
We went in and out of the woods and did hills and ravines.
Let me say that she did well and the ride was fantastic.
Tonight I wanted to go with a couple of the 'old timers'. Fred, my husbands pony mule of 24 yrs of age? ... and Badger, who is around 14 yrs old.
We went out to watch the sun set and look at the leaves which are starting to change colors.
One word of caution.
Old mules can be stupid~er than some young mules.
Tonight ... ol' faithful Badger decided that after a few hours of riding~~when I asked him to step through some thistles...he gave a 'bump'. I was instantly sitting on his neck and
then slid down off his head.
My hubby was frantic...
'Was I okay?'
'Did I get hurt?'
I tried to convince him it was a new way of dismounting and I thought we'd try a circus act...
Just when you think 'old reliable' is perfect, he'll pull one on you.
Just means that you always have to pay attention when mounted on a mule, doesn't it???
Our evening ride was fantastic.
My day ride with Siera?
Oh La La! She is something else.
Big bucks don't bother her.
I'm thinking that I am beginning to really really like her!
Don't tell Badger!
[Or was that the reason for the neck sliding tonight??? ;-)]
