The boys and my Handsome Hubby went on a nice 6 mile hike last weekend. It has finally turned a corner and started to warm up here so we are going to be hitting the trails much more regularly! Here's to hoping that the trails start to get cleared of all the winter and spring dead fall. There are so many trees down up there it's a bit like the game "Pick Up Sticks". And makes hiking tricky as we are trying to navigate the gigantic trees that are covering the trails.

Here is a video of our hike!

My ponies would have loved that trek, too.

For some reason I thought my horses needed to be right beside me on a walk. Mindy's way of walking on a long line lit a light bulb for me. Walking two horses is too difficult for me to keep them so controlled, so today I tried letting them go the end of the lead. This was on a paved road with no grass. It was so much easier for all of us. I don't think it would work on a grassy road very well, but I might try it. Maybe being more relaxed will be better for all three of us.

About 1 mile for Peanut. We went to a show today and I'm sure we walked more, but I have no way of knowing for certain.

Please tell more about the show
It was a small show, I went in Showmanship, Halter, Color, Trail and Hunter and had a wonderful day with friends. He won a few ribbons along the way, too. And was also naughty at times, but that's Peanut :D.

Thanks Kelly, he's quite sure he's handsome, lol. If he had a "song" it would be Carly Simons "Your So Vain" (boy does that date me!)

Willow, I had SO much fun. I didn't want to go at first but once I got there it was like 2020 never happened. I never thought of the pandemic once.

Look at those beautiful ears up! (Ears are my favorite) What a handsome guy. I'm not surprised you won ribbons. So glad you enjoyed yourselves.
