Went for a trail ride today on Bandit with my friend Sonya and her horse Willow. Seeing that B and I are out of shape we only rode for about an hour but it was a fun relaxing time. Bandit went thru puddles with no problem, had to double take looks at some big rocks, walked over a culvert , met some people with kids and dogs on trail, made it by them with a little persuasion but it went well. Coming back the same way we went in he decided he didnt like the looks of a big wooden box that had been used for a jump years ago. Riding out thru a field we saw a coyote running away from us. Had a good relaxing ride with good horses and good friend!

Abby came over again yesterday to have a ride on Bandit, thank you Deb and Peter and Fred for supervising and helping out with Bandit . Of course he was a good boy and did his job of putting a smile on her face.
RAIN coming tonight into tomorrow! Could be a nasty windy wet day, may keep the boys in for the morning although Bandit could sure use a rinse off. I have never had a horse get so dirty from laying in his stall..
If weather clears by Saturday afternoon, I am planning on going on a trail ride with my friend Sonya.... lets hope it clears.

No pictures but I rode Bandit tonight before it got too dark, still practicing on that sidepassing. Overall it was a good ride. Looking forward to another versatility trail challenge on Sunday. As long as we have fun thats all that matters to me.. gotta pack the trailer tomorrow morning, working 11:30- 7:30pm so it will be dark by the time I get home. Loving the fall weather but dont like getting dark earlier and earlier.

My what long eyelashes you have, I am such a pretty boy when I am calm.

night time sky and clouds

Instead of riding Bandit tonight I decided to take him for a walk to see some cows and sheep. We walked by the cows while they were eating and B was nervous and walked a little fast but we made it ok. Went into the next driveway and watched the sheep, he was okay with that and there was also a dog barking out of sight, no problem. So we turned around to head back home still staying on opposite side of road of cows. He was more anxious going back and when the cows(heifers) not sure what to call them) decided to run along the fence line woooeeeee, we both did some fast maneuvering. Got a little bit of rope burn on my hand but I'm ok. Thankfully the people going by slowed down or stopped until he decided to stand still. We eventually made it back by them and once by them he walked just as nice with me. A tractor trailer even went by and that didnt phase him at all. Go figure! I guess we need to take some more walk bys before I try to ride him down that street....

Bandit watching the cows from across the road..ok until they ran along fence line, the B wanted outta there. Got rope burns on my hand to prove it.

Took Bandit for a walk tonight to see what he thot of the sheep and cows. Hmmm sheep werent bad and they even walked around.
