The recent windstorm knocked a bunch of trees into the roads where we ride. Most, we can jump over.
However, the only way around this tree was under it...so Patty brought tools to remove it.
In back of me while I'm holding the camera, Sirie is holding onto Shade and Arianna. You can hear them react when the tree broke...but Fiddle really did just move her head.
Her feet stayed planted.
Dang, I love riding a Standardbred!

Patty (pink helmet) is signed up to do the 75 miler with her gelding Shade. Sirie (blue helmet) is recovering from hip surgery, so she'll do the 25 miler with Arianna. And Fiddle is as ready as I can make us to start her first 50...in 6 days! Almost 5 days! Wahoooo!
My body's solar battery was reading "zero charge" yesterday, but a few hours trotting trails this morning brought the meter back up to "happy happy joy-joy"!
Patty has been riding endurance for yonks (she looks about 13 years old in her Tevis Cougar Rock photo, but then again, she looks about 15 years old now, even though she has some grey hair), and she has some wonderful stories to share.
