|How friggin' adorable were they??|
Sunday we got a lot of things done around the property in the morning, including cleaning the barn up (which it desperately needed). It wasn't quite as warm as Saturday, but we made plans to pick up a friend in the afternoon and all go trail riding at Rudolf Bennitt Conservation Area, which was a new venue for me and DH. It was a little over an hour away, so about the same distance as Indian Camp Creek, just the opposite way.
|The dogs also got in some snuggling time.|
There were things I liked and disliked about both trails, if I were mentally comparing them. I think Rudolf Bennitt will look a lot better in the spring, when things green up, but Sunday it was dreary and brown. We flushed some wild turkeys, which the horses seemed fascinated by. There is a firing range, so the sound of gunfire was occasionally audible. My horses are fairly accustomed to gunfire (DH has a range out back), and the 3rd horse had never been exposed but didn't seem unduly concerned. We only explored like a quarter of the park, but had several creek crossings. Ruby is always a booger about new creek crossings (although once she's crossed them once, she's fine to go back over them), so I think RB will be great to help get her over that.
