Wildlife on the move in Tyrrell Park
We went out on the bayou and we started trotting. A truck was out there spraying around the utility poles and we moved up closer to the road to go around them. We trotted to the bridge and crossed over - Biscuit was tender footed as always. We went straight to the right of the bog, stopped here and there to see if Rogue would drop and pee!!! We started trotting and kept going all the way to the back. It was wonderful to be trotting with my Biscuit Man. Had a few little snits over not keeping on rein and speeding up but he did as he was instructed! We went down the back and the gator nursery is full of water but we didn't see any gators.
We crossed the little cement bridge and went around the curve and headed back to the front. Biscuit flinched at a noise in the brush to the right and then again when little pigs scattered. I had a good grip on him and could see the sow's snout looking out from the brush. The pigs ran parallel to us for a ways and I put Biscuit in a brisk trot all the way to the front of the bog. We rounded the hairpin turn and up on the little land bridge was a big black hog!!! Biscuit stopped in his tracks and the pig ran into the woods to our right. Biscuit was not amused. He doesn't mind when they are beside him but obviously in front of him is not his idea of a good time. Rogue went around us and we were on the look out for more that maybe we couldn't see due to the brush!! We crossed the bridge and hit a trot all the way back to the woods. We walked from the woods to the trailer.
Wow!!! What a fun ride!!! It was a blast.
