Cooler Temperatures

It was beautiful today for the first time in over seventy days of 100+ temperatures. The horses are roaming about with a skip in their steps. The dogs were racing around the backyard and the birds were singing a different song. Kela and I agreed on a time to tack up for a ride the night before. It was around 8:00 am. She had come to feed her horse earlier and I had already saddled, ready and waiting on her to arrive. Jerzey was feeling full of her self. I lunged her for a short time to take the edge off. I don’t normally do this if we ride often, but since it had been more than three weeks since our last ride, I thought it was necessary.

   Kela had not made the cross over, so I rode over to her house. It’s just across the street. She keeps her horses at her Moms. We rode off down the road and today, even Oreo was feeling the cool temps. She is normally low keyed and doesn’t find much to bugger about. Today, however, she was sporting her new found freedom. We headed out by way of Haymarket. We took the underpass and went up I20 until we come to the Kleberg Road area. On the other side of Hwy 175, we followed it until we went back under it and picked up Riley Crest to Garden Grove.

   We rode down Garden Grove where it met Riley Crest again and took the I20 green to Seagoville Road. I’m not sure how many miles it is, but I’m guessing, all in all, about 15 miles round trip back to the house. It was a really nice day. Sunny and not to hot most of the day. The horses were feeling tired by the time we got back to the house. Jerzey had been laboring a bit and showing favor on her left hip. I walked several distances through-out the ride time. I definatley needed the walk. I get stiff in the saddle to long. I’m going to make it a point to bring tennis shoes next time. I have saddle bags I can put them in. Doh! I really need to lose weight for several reasons. Not only to make my horse more comfortable on long rides, but to feel better my self. It’s always been a struggle for me to find the time for my self. You’d think, I’d be the most important thing on my daily list, however I find so many other
things to do but me.

Ron and Maykayla got home at 2:00 pm after having gone to Pecan Gap. He bought another toy! hahaha He picked up a hay dolly. dollie? Any who, it’s blue and homemade from the looks of it, but it’ll get the job done. Makayla helped get it off the flatbed and onto the ground. She’s such a big help to us. She can do almost anything Ron can do. She’s almost as bossy as he is too.

You’d think this was the reason we bought round rolls of hay. She loves playing on them. What kid doesn’t like climbing on stuff.
