I had to drive up to the ranch yesterday afternoon, after school, and I'm glad I did. It was a beautiful Indian summer day up there, the breeze kicked in, and the air was cool. It was 107 degrees down in the desert, but up in the mountains it was completely different. It was...refreshing! I stopped at home to change my clothes and immediately headed up the mountain to the horse ranch where I board my five. Quad immediately nickered (I think he now associates me with...FOOD!) and Cali stood patiently by her gate, begging for a run in the arena. So, I took her down there and she calmly ate weeds until she got a hair up her BUTT, and off she went!!! Sunni and Quad had to come over to see what Cali was up to, hanging their heads over their corral pipes. I took some time and just hung out with them, brushed them, and gave them all some feed. Gigondas seemed to especially need some lovin' and I spent quite a while with her, grooming her, getting the knots out of her mane, and giving her scratches. It was a good way to end the day.
