April Rainy Days

Not much to report on lately, but we have been loving the rain we are receiving. Like most places, we need it. Makes for some soggy horses and slippy situations though. Stay dry out there!

G'day strangers!!

Hello everyone! Decided to sign back in after a very long hiatus and noticed there were a few pending comments, so wanted to post in case anyone was still out there. :) I have been very busy with lots of traveling and Gus has changed tremendously but still such an amazing horse with an awesome personality. With the nature of social media, I have mainly focused on Facebook and Instagram, but thought it was time to say hello again and make some updates. Gus is 9 years old now and we are still at Shiloh Horse Rescue where he enjoys his boarded life with many of the same (and new) pasture mates. Shiloh is still going strong, focusing on The Lucky Horse to sell handmade shoes in order to support the ranch and all of its endeavors. NWHA is not really in existence any longer and actually the status of the group is in limbo, so unfortunately I have no updates on that. But, alas, Augustus is still the same fun and mischievous guy and a blast to ride. We are still loving life out here in the Mojave. I will try to update the site more often, but in case any one is interested, you can follow my account on Instagram - @bonzamate. I tend to post a good mix of travel and horse photos and maybe you will find them interesting. Also, I am on Vimeo: www.vimeo.com/brumbychaser. Until next time, please enjoy some recent photographs of Augustus.

Good 'ol Gus 11/3/12

He knows when you're happy. He knows when you're comfortable. He knows when you're confident. And he always knows when you have carrots. ~Author Unknown

Riding in the Heart of the Mojave 10/27/12

“A man on foot, on horseback or on a bicycle will see more, feel more, enjoy more in one mile than the motorized tourists can in a hundred miles.” Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire

The Dusty Trail 10/25/12

"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds..." - Edward Abbey

Megan and Gus 10/20/12

Megan took Gus out again on Saturday and we all went for a nice ride. James joined us for the ride on Colby. I rode my other horse, Sawyer, who hadn't been out in a while since I am trying to get him fattened back up. It was cool, because for the first time, someone was riding Gus on trail WITH me. He has gone out with Megan plenty of times, but always when I am not around. It was really neat to see him out on trail under someone else and see how he handled and looked. He was a perfect gentleman and treated Megan like a lady, haha.
