Here are the boys heading out this morning before the storms hit. Look at their sleek coats and "finally-getting-rounder" figures! Mom and I had another excellent ride yesterday. It was buggy and humid and too icky for fun grazing so we took them on a long trail ride in the shade of our own woods and other, nearby woods. I do think Pie would have easily walked into town if I had asked him to do that. We ended up in the wooded backyard of a neighbor and long-time friend of our family. Pie wanted to walk right up to their back door. I was afraid his hooves would cut up the lawn so I made him stay in the woods. He was so funny, craning his neck, like a kid looking in the windows. On our ride, Mom kept saying, "That Pie is so good!" I think she says that because Pie is only 4, but it makes me laugh to myself. She is riding a 5 year old Thoroughbred! She acts like she is on a calm, chubby school horse. We rode all over, including up the hill near the Turnpike and down a steep incline. The boys were wonderful. When we were coming home we were near the road and it was windy and slightly chaotic. I heard Mom behind me calling, "Julie!" I turned around and here she and Sovey come, trotting right up to us. At first I thought he was shying at something until I saw her big smile. She cracks me up! We hosed them off and grazed them until they were dry. Oh happy days!
