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.

King of the Mountain 10/13/12

Augustus went out for a nice day trip with Megan, James, and his fellow equine buddy Colby. They rode up into the Mesquite Mountains on the CA / NV line and had some great view of Sandy Valley and the Nevada desert below. With all the recent rains, there were plenty of water holes along the way for them to sip from and play in. This is one of the few times Gus has gone out on trail without me, and he did awesome. No issues, no problems, and no one got bucked off. Makes me a proud Dad to see my boy going out on adventures even when I can't be around. Thank you James and Megan for taking care of him and letting him have some fun!
