Desire doesn't roll very often and I've been riding her so much lately that she's getting lots of baths and fly spray with coat conditioner in it applied liberally. On her down time, she's been pretty "white" and snazzy looking lately! Apparently she feels the need to compensate and muss herself up the only way she can--mane, tail, and forelock constantly full of stickers. Like, she pretty much must itch her head and butt in sticker bushes to get as many as she does, as often as she does:
a mild case of Sticker Forelock..sometimes it's a solid horn
I had a pointless 80 mile journey yesterday and schedule kerfluffle, and this morning was suddenly open and agenda-less. I knew just what to do. Into the trailer went Desire and away we went for some solo miles at the lake.
Berries are getting ripe...Desire had carrot bites and I sampled some berries

Back at the trailer Desire had a long pee and was lazily eating hay and the rest of the carrots I had packed, but was pretty much sleepy and tuckered out.
I think I'll give Desire the weekend off, we cranked out about 50 miles in the last 9 days and there was some serious hill work in there, too. Time to get Blaze and Joey out!
