And on the third day...
We took it a bit slower than the first two days.
Smooch took a nap on my bed:
Carson and I took turns riding Lucy. Here's my turn:
Here's Carson's turn:
Here's the #1 reason in my mind why people in New Mexico wear cowboy boots when riding: Cholla cactus!:
Holy cow, look at the thorns on this baby! It actually embedded itself through my jeans and into my boot:
And speaking of cows, here are some:
And here is what's left of that dead one that Carson posted about when she and Lucy dragged the spine and ribcage back to 7MSN in this post:
Here's Smooch giving me her best "oh-my-gosh-I'm-so-tired face:
Followed immediately by her "is that rabbit I smell?" face:
And this is the face of a woman who loves riding her beautiful donkey:
These familiar faces were waiting for us back at the ranch. Hi boys!:
Recognize this gate?:
Lucy's a total pro at helping to open the famous 7MSN ranch gate now:
I was very impressed.
Back at the barn, Linda was getting ready to halter up Eugenia, the beautiful Delaware hen:
Kidding. But let me say this, I have a feeling we're going to be hearing some stories from Carson about Eugenia...she is one amazing chicken!
Tonight, we watched the movie "Buck", about Buck Brannaman, the legendary "horse whisperer". It was my first time seeing the film, Carson's third. Wow. This movie is so powerful, it hit me like a ton of bricks. If you haven't seen it yet, please, see this movie. Right away. You can thank me later.
