Rush home after work for change of clothes, eat a bite of salad, then off to ride for a bit.
We’re enjoying wonderful weather at present.  It is beautifully warm, not hot, and so light and breezy.  The humidity is low and it is so comfortable.  I actually took a long sleeve shirt just in case.  Was on the verge of donning it by the time we got done.
Walker and Skinny did great.  Think this counts as Skinny’s first trail ride.  He was alert to things around him, but not concerned.  There were some challenges – barking dogs, romping horses – but they both handled everything very well.  Skinny seemed comfortable leading or following along.  Never thought twice, that I could tell, about crossing the creek.  Seemed to be happy with the twisted shank grazing bit with a leather curb.  I look forward to many more rides with Mr. Chestney.
I felt like a celebrity.  Walker had the horses all ready to tack up when I arrived.  I think I was the first one on!  Trees are in full leaf now, just beautiful.  Trekking down the Sherwood was splendid.  It’s almost a magical part of the forest and I love the smell of pines.  We live in such a beautiful part of the world.  I am thankful for this evening spent in it.
Tried at least 30 times to get some pics.  No good.  I could not take a single pic that was discernable and I knew what I was looking at!  Oh well.
