Misty's Monday Muse - Trail Ride

I took MyLady for a ride today.

We rode with my handsome gelding friends:
A Foxtrotter and Spotted Saddle Horse.

I walked through a forest of pine trees.
 I walked over lots of logs.
I took a big drink of water when I got home.

Then I enjoyed a roll in the soft dirt
while Mr. Once Upon cleaned my rolling box.
Thank you Mr. Once Upon!

It was a good day and
I was a very good girl.

Happy Trails,


  1. Oh, it all looks like such great fun!

  2. Good for you Misty and your lady! Looks like you had a lovely ride with your horsey friends and human friends. Your lady is dressed warmly which tells me it is still cool there. Sounds like it was a perfect day!

  3. Dreaming, it was a lot of fun; our first time on that trail. I went through a tunnel and over a bridge and saw lots of people and two-headed babies and dogs of different sizes. I took it all in stride, but had to keep an eye and ear on one dog we encountered. It looked like a big, floofy, powder puff. Even floofier than Tucker. It was a cheese-hound, or keys-hound, or something like that. It looked like it had just come out of the dryer without a fabric softener sheet. My gelding friends thought it looked funny too.

    Hi Juliette, The temperatures are still fluctuating a lot here, but we are warming up. It was mid-60s and I got sweaty and thirsty; I'm still shedding my winter coat. MyLady is a wimp and gets chilly easily (plus she has been sickly), so she dressed in layers. Most of the hikers and dog walkers were in shorts and t-shirts.

  4. Oh how fun for you and your Lady Misty! Rosie and I would love to ride through forests like that. Lately we've been "Mud Bogging" as our trails are a mucky leg sucking soupy mud.

  5. Misty, what a big brave girl you are! And so pretty! I bet Your Lady had a lot of fun.

  6. Jeni, I hope your trails dry out soon. There's horse eatting monsters in those leg sucking mud bogs, ya know.

    Terry, I was very brave, especially through the tunnel that made clippity-clop sounds under my feet and had whooshing car monsters going overhead.

  7. I'm impressed you can ride and take pictures at the same time.

  8. Jacqueline,

    I take them quickly and I never know how the picture will look until I get home and upload it to my computer. And my biggest concern is that I'll drop my camera and have to dismount to retrieve it. Getting back on Misty is a big challenge without something to stand on, which isn't always easy to find out on the trail.
