Sierras day or rest - 10 to go.

This morning we loaded up 2 of our mustangs - Pepper and my Dixie. We meaning our grandson Tyler, Bob and I. We headed for the top of 4Th of July Pass - just east of Couer d'Alene, Idaho. About 60 miles from home. We joined about 25 of our friends from our Back Country Horsemen group. Bob got settled in a chair to watch. Our friend April's husband Mark was not riding so he and Bob hung out together keeping an eye on every ones vehicles and trailers. The rest of us set out on Cross Country Ski trails. Nice riding in the summer. It was about a 12 mile ride - 3 hrs. My body hurt when we got back - think I need to ride more often and I am 70 after all. Darn.

Tracey liked her trail picture with her horses ears. So here are mine. No steep trail but it was fun riding.

Tyler enjoying Pepper. Peppers eyesight has gotten very much worse recently. He loves to go though and is still a babysitter horse.

And the last pictures is my sweet Dixie's face. She kept turning her head and looking back. Love the picture
My great granddaughter - 15 month old Lilianna just arrived, just to give her GG and big hug so gotta go do that.


  1. Oh, yes, I LOVE ears on photos! Hope you had a good ride, Lea, and I hope that Bob wasn't too grumpy about being left behind :)

  2. Thanks Tracey. Other than jigging along (I know that is not a recognized gait but it happens). I think it was the first time in a long time or perhaps ever with a group that large. Bob wasn't grumpy just sad.
