I asked the team, “What do you guys think of your little vacation?”
They turned to B.O.B. (their spokes-horse) who tried to answer between mouthfuls of grass, and muttered, “Groovy man, absolutely groovy.”
On another note, Clementine continues to improve. The only thing I can think of, is that we inadvertently passed an outcropping of Kryptonite, leaving her with less than her normal, super-canine strength.
Tomorrow evening, I’m off to LuAnn Baker’s ranch, in Pagosa Junction, 25 miles to the south, where I’ve been invited to teach at her annual women’s horse driving clinic. I was originally invited just to give a quick lecture, but one of the instructors was injured in a fall, so now I’ll be teaching as well. I hope I haven’t gotten too rusty being off work the past few days. It should be a fun event. There will be several draft horse teams and wagons, maybe a couple of little rodeos, and a lot of laughs. And best of all, a lot of gals will get to drive some really great horses. I’ve heard there will be at least two teams of Suffolk Punches, which are a really nice ‘Old Style’ breed of Drafts. I’ll take a lot of pictures and blog on the event.
