Update 4/23/10

My Mom came out from Texas and stayed for a few days, and of course we had to spend some time out at the ranch. It was very windy the whole time she was out, but aside from all the dust and sand blowing around we did manage to have a great time. Augustus was definitely full of it and was quite a handful in the Round Pen, but there was never a dull moment. He was feeling great in all that wind and I had alot of fun putting on a small little rodeo for my Mom.

The Mesquite Mountains

Augustus and I had an amazing time together today. I mean, it just doesn't get any better. He spent the first part of the morning playing with his Mustang buddy, Iceman, then we went off by ourselves on a nice two hour ride to the base of the Mesquite Mountain Range. The weather was perfect...warm and sunny with a slight breeze and barely a cloud in the sky.

The Mesquite Mountains are on the California side of Sandy Valley, and basically make up the western border of the Mesquite Valley from San Bernadino County to Inyo County. The area is all wilderness and you could ride all the way into Death Valley if you were packed and prepared enough.

A Rainy and Windy Monday

It was a rainy and windy Monday, but Augustus had a blast! We didn't do any riding today due to the weather but Megan and I turned out Gus, Sawyer, and her horse Colby to let them play and we all had a blast. Lots of running, kicking, bucking, and even some chase. They were all so frisky today! It was a great day of bonding and just some simple, quality time..Gus and I even shared an apple at lunch. :)

Just Me and my Stang

Augustus and I layed in the nice, soft sandy turnout for most of the morning today. I couldn't have thought of any other way to spend my day....nothing better than just relaxing and enjoying some quality time.
