In the Night Farm…Your Ride is Here.

Riding Aside

While Consolation rested on Day 4 of the Owyhee Canyonlands Pioneer, Ironman and I compiled this directory of Things to Do When You’re Not Riding:

1. The dishes.

2. Climb a big hill…

3. …and do Zorro impressions.

4. Or, visit a ghost town…

5. …with a white church…
(a very photogenic white church)

6. …and an old outhouse. Sorry — tours by appointment only.

7. Start your Christmas shopping.

8. Or play in an old loading chute.

9. Back at camp, pour a bit of whiskey. Play cribbage. And ponder the familiar question: Should we ride the 50 tomorrow? It’s our last chance! Shall we try it? Ponder…

10. …and, finally, reach a decision.

  5. I have never seen a sign like that last photo. That is something else! I agree with Jackie – just hang that carrot out there! 🙂

What an accomplishment. Congrats!Very kind & touching post about your friend's mare. Anxious to read the rest of the story. Won't forget the bookmark now.
