I love this photo of Donna & Lily. She's so much fun to ride with because she always stops to take photos and then she sends them to me. I have an official horse blog photographer. And she laughs at my shit. THAT is worth any horrible thing she might do....hahahaha.......
Anyway, we went for a wonderful ride today in a new place for her. I've been there once. Great hill, 3 1/2 miles down (then back up on the way home) and if you pay attention to directions (which we both seem to lack that talent) you can add on another approximately 3 or 4 miles uphill again...."Turn left then turn left again"....how hard is that??? So we missed the second loop, but it was probably ok. We did start up the California Loop on the Tevis Trail & Donna was holding her breath a bit. I'd say "Hey Donna!! Quick! Look down! Does that scare you???!!". We finally turned around because it was getting cold and narrow. When we did, Summer almost bolted on me. I was sure it was a mountain lion........narrow, cliffy, cold and dim, with mountain lions. I love endurance! I love riding.
ANYWAY.....onto food for a minute.
Here is our dinner last night at a great little pizza place in town. I ordered a Caesar Salad with real anchovies (a clue this restaurant rocks) and Donna ordered the same thing. I almost fell out of the booth (a hard thing) because I don't know anyone who eats these tasty little fish except my dad....well it seems her dad taught her about anchovies also! This was too exciting for words!!!!
Here is T & Fred. Fred has a wicked sense of humor and that is a good thing. He & T seem to like each other so that's a good thing . Donna & I have several 50 milers planned this year so they can Starbucks together while we trot our little asses off. Then be back in time and feed us food & gatorade when we come into the vet checks and then take care of our horses while we whine a little and ask for Advil. This is our plan. What a life.
Anyway, enough about dinner and our future 50 milers.
I don't know what I was doing, except it was cold in the shade. This is where Donna lost her banana. So we were on "banana watch" all the way back. Then she found it and ate it. And I bet if a horse stepped on it, or worse yet, left horsey doo doo on it, she'd still eat it. This is why she is my friend. She's fearless about fruit.
The End. For now.
