Well, I FINALLY got to have a visit with the horses yesterday. Unfortunately I also drove by a fatal accident up on Highway 74 involving a Toyota Rav and a motorcycle. The motorcyclist didn't make it. I saw him lying face down on the highway. I stopped and asked the people if they were able to call out (there are zones up there with NO cell coverage), and they said yes. Minutes later, I saw a fire truck coming up from Palm Desert and another one coming down from Pinyon. Alas, another life lost on that damn highway because PEOPLE WON'T SLOW DOWN! I was pretty shaken by this accident, since it happened right before I drove by and a life was lost.
By the time I got to the ranch, the horses were neighing in their greeting! :-) I let Scout out into the arena and put SWAT on Sunni. He actually cooperated! In fact, he was the most joyous in his greeting! He nuzzled me, he nuzzled my hair, he wouldn't leave me alone! I would have let him out next, but by the time I cleaned out water troughs, 2 hours had gone by and it was noon and it was HOT! I headed back to the desert for lunch and a siesta!
Scout, of course, was her usual adorable self. She didn't pull on the lead rope at all and was a GOOD GIRL!
