|This is pretty much our life at home. Mud. Walking. Everything is brown.|
This has been the Eternal Winter. Every time the weather seems to be making a turn for the better and spring must be inevitable, it snows. It's cold. It's wet. It's miserable. Everything is mud. Riding at the farm still entails a whole lot of walking, very low key hacking, and not much else. Any time we manage to escape and get off property it's usually to an indoor, and while I'm grateful for those opportunities, Dino and I are over it.
So when Kim invited us to come with her to trail ride at Rosedale Park last weekend, I leapt at the chance!
It was so, so sweet to finally get OUT, and on a beautiful sunny day no less.

Dino and Chance were rockstars, as usual, and traded off leading the way throughout the ride. When Chance was unsure about anything, Dino easily moved in front to lead, and happily yielded when Chance was feeling confident enough to go first. I was just so pleased with how these two worked together on the trail, especially considering that their relationship can be a bit contentious at home, and usually they have Sully to smooth things over and act as leader on the trail.
I just hope our near future holds more rides like this and fewer cold, muddy walks around the farm.
