4-2-12, 5 Miles NE of Monte Vista, CO - Bill and Doc put in an outstanding performance today and knocked off 24 miles.
A half hour before sunrise, all three of my mischievous equines were begging for their oats, so I fed them. By the time I went out to pull them out of the playpen for harnessing, they were buck-snorting and running all over the pen, acting like a bunch of kids with bees in their pants. In between their rodeo antics, I managed snag each one and lead them out to the wagon.
After they were hitched up, Bill and Doc spent the first hour at a trot as they burned through the sugar of their morning oats.
