Cowgirl Dreams

Cowgirl Dreams

In 2 short weeks we'll be riding our happy horses through the Arizona backcountry.

Ah, 'twas a glorious day. Up at dawn, working like a little fiend on the kinds of freelance projects that I truly love.
Promptly at one, I scooted outta that office, embarking on a premeditated playing hooky kind of afternoon.

Coda

It's farrier day ~ new shoes for both horses.
In two short weeks, we're off to Arizona, on our first trail ride of the season! The horsies are as restless as I am. Wild enough that I solicited help from a friend to help calm them down.

Thunder

 Still sporting thick winter coats, caked with layers of mud. (No need to photograph that mess!) In desperate need of a bath, though I doubt the weather will warm enough for me to make that happen.
And, that's okay. We'll go ugly. Just as long as we get to go.
I am sooooo excited for this escape to Arizona. Where it's summer! And, with any luck the cactus will be blooming!

Cowgirl Dreams

Hey! A real live cowboy! Yet another fine reason to do these trail rides. :)

They haven't tried on their saddles in 6 long winter months. They're spooky and spirited with energy to burn. I've got my work cut out for me.... but this horse shoe day is a fun first step. Because it forces them to stand still. For nearly an hour while my kindly, old farrier trims up their tootsies and gets us ready for a new riding season.

I sometimes wonder what they're daydreaming about ~ while he's scraping and filing and messing with their feet.

Perhaps they're doing the same thing I am... Remembering all the fun we had last year and hoping for a deliciously early spring.
