I am happy to report that after 2 1/2 months my laptop has returned and seems to be functioning normally once again. I am even happier to report that Gryph has returned for a two month ride – on her beloved pony Finehorn. The other major bit of news is the addition of a new horse, a lovely young mare we’re calling Luna Jack. Tonight we’re camped out at the rodeo grounds behind the Cowboy Church in Henrietta, Texas. The forecast calls for 30*F tonight and the winds today were a tad brisk. Winter is fast approaching and we’re heading almost due south to Austin, Texas where we hope to see in the new year before Gryph returns to Oakland, California and I head eastward into Louisiana and Mississippi for the winter. There is much to relate about the past several months and life just keeps happening so I hope to be posting frequently in the next while. Meanwhile it’s after 9pm so I’ll post a few photos tonight before turning in!
Good Morning! You can see from the above that I had the best of intentions, but for whatever reason there’s a glitch in the photo upload process somewhere in WordPress or in my computer that I haven’t been able to sort. This morning dawned sunny and Not windy – for which we are grateful. Gryph is doing her morning stretches and the ponies are roaming the arena, trimming the edges for what grass they can find. I am huddled in my pajamas, waiting for the sun to do it’s job and warm the air a bit before getting dressed and packing for a long day’s ride down to the Ag Barns in the town of Mayfield, TX – which doesn’t even show up on my map! Local knowledge is a wonderful thing
And now a ride is waiting so I can scout the road ahead and meet our hosts for tonight so I will sign off for now – in hopes of posting photos this evening!
