Kellie and I went on the last ride of the year on December 30. I had to walk all the way to the back of the pasture to get Biscuit and he loaded up nicely and we hauled to Tyrrell Park. I parked in the big area nearer the trails as there was rainwater in the ditch. I saw a HUGE tree down covering the right side of the trail head. Oh Joy. Kellie arrived and we walked over there to check it out. It was the huge tree to the right of the trail head.
|Tree down at the trail head|
|Rotten! Biscuit has backed up into this tree a few times when he thought the trail ride should be over!|
|Fresh hog tracks of a pretty good sized hog!!! It was int he middle of the trail. We didn't see any hogs today though.|
Kellie and I continued on around and went down the little trail. She stopped to eat her sandwich and Elan stopped dead in his tracks when he heard the rustling of a sandwich bag!! I walked back to where she was and Biscuit and Elan were nose to nose almost. Kellie had given Elan a bite of sandwich and he had a big old smear of mustard on his nose. Biscuit stretched his nose toward Kellie entreating her to give HIM a treat. Elan actually bit at him and gave him the ugly Gorilla Face. I told Elan he was being a crank as I had gave him a treat that morning. He bit at Biscuit again - not really biting him - just showing dominance. Biscuit was unperturbed. Kellie gave him a bite and he didn't care if Elan was being pissy about it. Kellie and I thought it was hilarious because the mostly get along like a house on fire! Horses are just so freaking funny!!!
We got back to the trailer and took their tack off. Elan later came looking for his treats - LOL I shared some treats with him. He is just so funny. Biscuit gobbled up loads of treats while I did his feet.
It was a fun ride but not very long...only around 4 miles.
