In the Night Farm…Your Ride is Here.

It’s That Time Again!

After a couple days’ vacation, Ironman and I are headed back to In the Night Farm this morning to load Consolation, her pre-packed tack, and our camping gear. By early afternoon, we’ll be en route to the Teeter Ranch near Oreana, Idaho, for Day 3 of Owyhee Fandango.

The Sunday 60 is an out-and-back trek along the Oregon Trail and Snake River. Although out-and-backs aren’t always the most popular type of trail, I’m looking forward to it. I suspect the “turn around on the trail” effect will be a good motivator for Consolation. Knowing where she is, where she’s going, and how many miles lay ahead may prove easier for her than looping out from base camp.

Additionally, I have high hopes that the changes I made to Consolation’s nutrition, conditioning, and hoof boot fitting after Owyhee Spring will bear out in the form of improved performance on Sunday. We shall see…
