I should tell you all now...up front, that this will be a LONG POST...as it was a LONG RIDE! Cousin B gets to my house at 6:30 am so we can get coffee and get our "shit" together!
Here's to "Happy Trails"!!! Cuz B does not complain about the fresh OJ Mimosa's...!
Bronco Betsy proudly wears "The Desert Rose" chinks! Just before mounting up we take a potty break and Bronco needed a bit of help getting out of the precarious position she choose to pee on my chinks! I tried to help her...but was a bit over zealous and pulled her almost over. Unfortunately...she broke a nail and quite frankly, I did expect more from this cowgirl. But I was even more shocked at The Bossman siding with her when she told me to ^&*(%# off!
Guess when it comes down to it we all find out who our friends are in times of crisis. She "pees" on my chinks...I laugh. I break her nail and the "Hell Bitch" rears her head up!!!
Last chance to reach out and touch someone...and wouldn't you know it would be The Bossman that would try to touch....someone!Cuz Bronco B and Jesse at a sign post!
Clean, cool water for all!!!
The Bossman takes time out for a training session!
Every time I turn around...The Bossman is still there! Maybe because we lost him once ( yes, on purpose) on this trail he stickes to my hind end like glue! Ya...bad joke!
The Desert Rose is on a Quest for the Crest!!! We will ride this trail soon!
The lunch stop rock is very comfy!!!
Oh Oh...Jesse is in trouble!!! Mom to the rescue....please!
This predicament that Jesse has gotten himself in reminds me of the silly mare photo!!! He had himself wrapped around the tree!!!
Auntie Desert Rose always packs a great lunch for the kids! Little Lady luvs apples carrots and cookies!!!
After lunch we mount up and hit the trail again!!!
Look very close...what do you see??? Yes, that is a long horn stray...The Bossman cautions me he may charge if we get to close! But I am confident Little Lady can run fast!!!
The Bossman celebrates the almost end of the trail!!!
The last watering hole!!! Yes...BB was TIPSY, this is not a camera error.
The ride back to the stables from a stables Buckaroo!
I must tell you all how proud I am of my Cuz Bronco Betsy for riding the Pines to Palms trail with us. 7 hours in the saddle and 20 miles!!! She never once complained about anything...except her damn finger nail! It is because of her "cowgirlthefuckup" (25 cents in the cuss jar!) attitude that I award her the...
You've Earned Your Spurs Award!
This Pony Cousin has passed every test that Jesse and The Desert Rose put before her and other than the finger nail incident, passed with flying colors!!!
Your Desert Rose!
