Birthday Ride with Barry and Kellie

EveryTrail - Find the best Hiking in TexasBarry and I met Kellie at Tyrrell for a ride.  Woo Hooo  we had a blast.  We went down Willow Bayou and we saw a big ol' alligator up on the opposite bank.  Barry thought he was about 6 or 7 feet.  We crossed over the big bridge and then back up Willow Bayou.  We got up towards the front where we turn to go around a deep ditch.  We saw a little hog - looked like a Vietnamese Pot Bellied Pig to me.  He watched us for awhile and then ducked back into the woods.  We went around the ditch and over near where it was.  I could see a black spot in there and it seemed like it was following us.  I could hear it behind me.  I thought it looked different than the other hogs we see out there and if someone dumped off a "pet" that became too big that is so pitiful.  Poor thing!  We got down to where the gate is at the road.  Sarge went right around the hairpin turn with no problem.  Elan said NO.   Hahhaha.  I took Biscuit around it with no problem.  I was a little nervous as the drop off leaves no room for error.

Elan didn't want to go.  He kept looking at the gate with the "what is wrong with this gate" look.  We crossed the bridge hoping he would think he was being left but it was a no go.  Kellie kept trying to get him to go but he wasn't interested.  She finally had to get off and try to lead him around.  He was resistant at first but he finally came with her.  We went down the road and into the park.  We went to the right of the woods and when we got up closer to the stables we hit a canter.  Biscuit cantered and then fast trotted because he can't canter slow!  ahahahahahaah  it was a blast.
