Finally Friday

I was so disappointed yesterday when I realized it wasn't Friday yet.  This week has been dragging on and on and needs to be over.  Stinker had yesterday off so I stole Cowboy and took him out for a trail ride to see how he was doing with things.  My mom has primarily been riding him 4-5 days a week and I haven't had much of a chance to do anything with him.

He has gotten so pokey leaving the barn.  I was a little concerned that there was something wrong, but nope she has just been letting him get away with being pokey.  He only got a little spooky as an avoidance because work is hard.  Overall it was a pretty good ride.

I realized it was getting dark more quickly than anticipated and I had to cross a road (I didn't want to be doing that in the dark on a dark horse with no reflective gear).  So instead of looping around like I had intended, we took a deer trail to try to get back down off the hill.  It got a little steeper than I anticipated and at one point I accidentally got him in some wire.  Luckily it was smooth wire and he didn't get freaked out by it.  Good boy Cowboy.


  1. Yikes. Maybe get one of those flashlights that clip to the brim of the helmet?

  2. Pokey sounds perfect for your mom 😋 glad you had a good ride, minus the wire!

  3. He is a cool guy. Glad your mom is getting him out so much. :-)

  4. Cowboy sounds like a great find. Glad he's settled in well fo you and your mom!
