EveryTrail - Find the best Hiking in Texas
Lee Ann B, Lee Ann P, Kellie, Randy, Barry and I went up to Big Sandy today to ride. We rode 12.2 miles. Crossed tons of downed trees, got snagged up in some!! Went off trail once - circled back and around a snapped in half tree that was easy going one way and not so easy going back!! Crossed a little bridge. It was just a fun ride. I enjoyed it so much. Biscuit was an absolute doll for the most part. He layed back his ears a few times, Lagato kicked up a few times, Rogue was a doll - like his old self!!
Barry took off on the ride back by himself to stretch Sarge's legs. It was a pretty ride - I bet it is gorgeous in the spring and fall! A tree or something fell out of the trees (loads of downed and snapped trees due to storms - you could hear branches falling!) and it startled the horses some.

When we got back to the trail head Biscuit was soaking wet and filthy as all get out. Where does he hid all of that dirt?!! I picked up his feet one by one and they looked polished on the inside from walking 12.2 miles in the sand! He feet looked simply fantastic!! I can see where the bars have grown since last Monday - Lee Anne P and I are going to trim them tomorrow. His frogs looked healthy, his soles did too. He did stumble a few times today on rocks, stobs, roots, but mostly he did a fantastic job. His girth had foam on the outside when we got back. I think he was pretty darn hot. His hair is long but he is shedding off nicely. His face is a darker gold. I think he is going to be gorgeous when he sheds out. His chest is full and pretty - he is just looking fantastic.
