Nothing, really.

I haven't been blogging, and really don't have anything to blog about.  My son has my camera, so the only photos I'm taking are with my lousy phone, or Jaenne's little point and shoot when I remember to take it with me.  I really need to buy a nice little point and shoot. 

Believe it or not, I've been working dogs a bit.  Put Cruz on stock a few times, and he's proven to be quite a bit of dog ... on sheep.  Cows?  Different story.  Apparently, those things are very scary!  I'm going to continue working him on sheep and getting a hold of him ... cause for now, he's not concerned about anyone else in there with him.  We need to change that.  I don't want to be stitching sheep.

Work is kicking my butt.  Especially now since it's getting dark much earlier.  I come home from work, and get as much stuff done as possible while it's light out.  I love fall ... really ... it's my favorite season ... I just hate losing daylight.  Oh, and the weather is gorgeous!  Perfect riding weather, but I'm stuck at work. 

Last weekend, Colleen was down.  We hiked out at Rabbit Creek.  What a nice area!

Then Karen and I took the horses to Wilson Creek.  It was packed.  The staging area was full of horse trailers, and the lower one was full of ATV trailers.  And there was no shortage of hunters in the area.  I was wearing red, but no one had anything bright orange, so we were pretty conscious about where we were going.  Also ran across a very cute, little, although very mad, rattlesnake.  He was old enough to rattle, so wasn't as dangerous as the "strike-first-ask-questions-later" babies, but his rattle was pretty small.  Didn't think to get a picture of it, probably just because my camera phone sucks.

Here's Karen.

She was a ton of fun to ride with!  Can't wait to go again.

 Oh, we are!  We're going to go ride way back into Rabbit Creek this weekend.  There are several trails back there that are not designated for motorized vehicles, so hopefully we can get away from the ATV's a bit.

And here's Kahlua after our last ride .... after I rinsed her off.  She was a sweaty dirty mess.

We're getting ready for our camping trip to Idaho City next weekend.  Can't wait to explore the mountains behind there!  Hopefully the weather stays clear. 



  1. Between your job, dogs and horses, you are pretty busy! Kahlua is looking good, and that sure is pretty country for riding.

  2. Glad you've got to work Cruz. Always some sort of challenge to get things done that we want! Glad your are getting some riding time too! Kahlua is looking fit! Have a great weekend at Idaho City! Looking forward to some photos even if it is just with your phone!
