As my readers might be aware, I bought 80 acres of high desert scrub outside of Winnemucca Nevada. From the beginning, I planned on moving out to that property to retire.
Well, “retirement” day might be coming sooner than I expected!
Anyway, I’ve started getting back into horseback riding as part of my preparation. Horses will be a main mode of transportation once I get moved. My plan is to first get a couple of mustangs that have been trained through the prison program then start gentling/training mustangs right out of BLM holding so those can be adopted more easily.
Well, I’ve been taking lessons and yesterday, I went on a group trail ride. There were 10 riders in all. Two were riding mules. I was on an older paint gelding.

There were six dogs along for the ride too! Dany D. Rottendog was happy until she got tired!
Thanks for reading!
