Val (Fantasyk Voyage) and I (and the sudden addition of my entire family) got to meet up in New Mexico! Schedules, weather and injury conspired against some other bloggers.
We got together at Monroe's in town, and completely geeked out talking about horses. It was great fun, especially since Val's so much more knowledgeable than I am and gave me great ideas on working with Cibolo (I should be able to start riding again next Friday, after I get back from DC... I hope. Darn work!).
She also reminded me that it should be fun to be with your horse, and to not lose sight of that.
And then we dropped by to visit her herd. Annie was something else. Beautiful and quite a sight running out to inspect us before letting the others come near.
Val assured her we were worthy.
Then the incredibly furry Yalla! Even Mireya petted her, her little hand sinking deep into Yalla's shoulder. I've never seen a yearling so friendly!
She loved Adam's soul patch. I swear all horses love Adam.
(Unfortunately my pictures of the other members of the herd were not so great - you'll have to take my word for it, they were wonderful too!)
Next time I'm up we're riding (right Val?). It won't be until October though!
Miss everybody. "See" you in a week...
