Yeah, I said it. Chief is a lovely and talented young guy but BOY, he is clumsy. Having survived Desire's torque and power both dry and wet, the other good test I could throw at the Renegades was Clumsy. I mean stumbling, graceless, dorky gelding clumsy.
Aww but he's so cute-- Chief trying on some orange shoes!
"Ah shit, when the redhead shows up I gotta WORK"
Just so you know, when I met J she rode western with leather tack, cowboy/work boots, jeans, and no helmet. Do you think Redheaded Endurance rubbed off a little??? LOVE YA, J!
Imitating a horse, I think?
Up the hill we go
A coyote was stalking a baby deer who was lying in the shade of a tree, across the valley. We rode right through the middle of nature's drama
Sedona loves the water--she will veer off the trail to head for it. Still learning to drink but loves to wade!
J's mare Sedona has been getting rubs from the Easyboot Epic gaiters, we corrected most of that today with copious amounts of baby powder on the gaiters and slicking down her legs. But seeing me slide on and Velcro the Renegades after powdering, slicking, banging, levering, strapping, locking, and finally pinning on her own front boots--well let's just say there might be a Dragon Fire Red order being placed in the near future. ;-) Speaking of, I passed on my snazzy red breast collar, the first endurance breast collar I ever bought (7 years ago) to Sedona. It's still in great shape and looks great with the red and blue she already has.
Just about a month until Chief and Sedona's endurance debut at Chamberlain Creek!
