The Milwaukee Road Rail Trail ride was held this weekend...although I'd swear it was a blogger's convention instead!Horsebytes, (center) me from Haiku Farm, and (right) Laurie from EvenSong Paints
Our training buddies did less well at this ride. Dory's mega-horse Spot (DJB Nottalotta Spots) blew an abcess literally as they were walking into the first vetcheck. Blood, then pus, and the horse was 3-legged lame for the vet. An hour later, the abcess had drained and the horse was totally comfortable again...but too late to save that particular competition day. Ah, well.
We originally planned for me to ride Maddie, who has a bit of "hustle". Maddie, however, had other plans for the day.
And you know what? I get enough "thrilling" rides from Fiddle. Riding the cushy calm futon is just fine!
Isn't it nice when a single dessert can multi-task like that?
It's good, you know.
