Here we are entering the woods. Janet is looking back to see if we were coming. Off to the left, there was a royal blue tank high up in the air with green metal legs like a 20 ft water tower. Janet said that it was a squirrel feeder. If Pie and Sovey saw that they would have folded up into puddles.
Here is my shadow - western saddle with horn, bitless bridle and yes, I have on my English helmet! What a mismatched rider I was. Who cares? Danno didn't mind in the least.
Every house was decorated for Christmas, below, and most houses had scary sheets over their bushes to protect the plants against the unusual frosty temperatures. Danno didn't mind decorations or sheets. Good boy!
Here is a photo from today that Janet just sent me that isn't blurry. Hysterically, I am so camera shy - you can see me attempting to get out of her view finder by holding the very end of the lead. I guess it didn't work!!! Danno looks great in this one. Janet just now reminded me that both riders and horses managed to hold it together through some tense moments today when a loud and too-close-for-comfort train passed by us. Neither Diablo or Danno reacted badly at all. We sure had a safe and happy ride.
