On the dusty trail

Well, folks, the time has finally come. Augustus and I completed our first, long two hour ride together on Friday. Gus was awesome and had so much fun being out there, and I was of course a very proud Dad. The weather was perfect, and we were joined by Sharil and Elisa, who rode their horses Cochise and Calamity. We rode way out to the Mesquite trail, back down toward Kingston Ranch, and then passed the Longhorns before returning back to the ranch. We had a few Jackrabbits scurry underneath us, trudged through some mud, hopped over a small bush, and crossed some deep, soft, sinking sand with no issues at all. The ride was perfect. My boy is definitely all grown up now. Whose ready for a trail ride?
