|Really, this pic and the title says it all.|
I made the Pony Girl’s day yesterday went we finally got to go out on trail again. She was absolutely thrilled to be out again, and there’s nothing quite like the view between my favorite pony ears in the whole world.

A group of five of us from the barn went out and rode up at Usery Mountain Park. It was the first trail outing for barn “baby” Ava, and Mimi is the perfect babysitter horse for accompanying the greenies out on trail. As fussy as she can be about her (very large) personal space bubble, when it comes to guiding the youngsters and keeping track of the herd, she is amazingly tolerant and attentive. So, so proud of my girl.

The cactus and wildflowers were in full bloom, since we’ve had a decent amount of winter/early spring rain.

As fun as it is to ride other people’s horses, there is nothing like my own pony. Especially one who is trustworthy enough to allow me to drop the reins and spend half the ride taking pictures.

(that’s Renegade orange, not Halloween, thank you)
She also taste-tested the new Purina ElectroEase electrolytes I got and deemed them delicious, to the point where she grabbed at the syringe for more, and wasn’t put off from continuing to eat her hay after dosing.
