Great ride this morning with Tiff and Frank and Kim and Rio. We headed to the river and made it right to the water beautifully with Frank leading the way down.
Frank, Mara and Rio all enjoyed a drink and rest at the water before we crossed to the other side and headed to the Dam.
We were at this point (next photo) on the ride when a steady stream of seventeen kayaks floated our way! I was too focused at the moment to take pictures, this one is from after the fact. Mara was fine for the first ten or so and then she started to question what’s up.
I felt she was “up” and we had some struggles but we completed the ride in good shape and all enjoyed the adventure.
The three horses had a relaxed walk home, while the three horsegals reflected on the ride. Tiff was our super wrangler and Frank our calm steady rock star.
For a fun change of pace this afternoon I had Mara pull a sled on our ride out. Mara B is very calm about it, the horses we passed along the way however, were very curious about what was going on! The snow was really deep, the temperatures very mild! But Mara was stiff in her right front leg (at a trot) for the second day in a row, so I’m hoping tomorrow she’s not dealing with that issue again.
Mara is starting to watch for our return while Jay and I are on a long endurance ride back . Looking forward to our sweet reunion!
Maddi tells me that Mara B is really shedding out at home. My day was for reading and relaxing, and I’m sharing my book titles with you.
Mara B and I wish you Peace and solitude on the Winter Solstice. It was another rest and healing day for Mara. We’re looking forward to more light coming our way each day now.
