So this post will introduce the cast of players to you. Because at one time or another...we all go into survival mode, knowing all of the personalities will help you understand how this adventure played out. Because this is my blog...I will play the lead role while my riding partners will be the supporting cast. The horses...which are the reason we got into this pickle (our love of and for them) share equal star status with THE DESERT ROSE!
The Desert Rose~ 2009 Pony Cousin Rodeo Queen, PONY COUSIN Founding Member, Desert Rider, and All around good time Cowgirl! Was once too anxious to mount Jesse without a trainer nearby. Her confidence has now grown to be to big for her Cowgirl pants!
Her Mount: Little Lady~ 5 year old Bay Tennessee Walker Mare, Biological Daughter of Slick, The Bossman is her Human Dad, 2009 Rodeo Mount for the DESERT ROSE, Soon to be Adopted by The Desert Rose!
The Bossman~ Desert Trainer, Human Dad to Slick and Little Lady, Rides Bartender/Groom/ Driver, Does not dress warm for rides cause if stranded thinks he will be the guy in the middle, Mission in Life...to Get Slick LAID!!!
His Mount: Slick~ 17 year Old Tennessee Walker Pinto Stallion, Biological Dad of Little Lady although he sometimes chooses to ignore that fact, Member Of Equines Alcoholics Anonymous, Believes that biting the calf of the Desert Rose is in fact FOREPLAY!
Bronco Betsy/Baby Doll~ Founding Member of the PONY COUSINS, Pastry Chef, Traveling Snowbird who just landed for a few rides with The Desert Rose, Foolishly believes that she is in good hands for her rides!
Her Mount: Jesse~ 10 year old Chestnut Quarter Horse Gelding, Calls the Desert Rose mom, is plagued by BAD FEET and ASTHMA...although as long as he is given time to blow can hit the trail with the best of them, Trick Pony, and Husband/Grand kid Horse.
Lastly...every good adventure story needs a VILLAIN!!! And as much as I do love this trial... on this ride I do have to say that it lead us to the "HOWTHEFUCKDOWEGETOUTTAHERETRAIL"!
I promise you...next post I will get back on trail...er, I mean track and tell the FACTUAL story of our adventure!
Your Desert Rose!
