The day started early with riding Howdy in the Burwell rodeo arena. Peace and quiet and crisp air. He started out a little tight, but ended up pretty decent. We did a lot of cantering, which was what we needed. One could not characterize it as a “lope” yet, but it is getting a little slower anyway. Relaxed is in our future yet, however. LOL
After that we went for a little shopping trip to Dry Creek Western Wear which is a pretty nice store in Burwell:
And here is the shirt:
Sometime during our shopping trip, I looked at potential curb bits for Howdy. I was dubious moving him to a curb, and when I looked at the bits, it was a solid No. Yikes, this looks like a wall of torture:
And this, I believe, is fencing material!
In the afternoon we fox hunted in the sand hills and I snapped a bunch of pictures. They are uploading to the cloud and I’ll post them later tonight when they get there.
