I took a few days off work this week to get some projects done around the farm and have some relaxing time too. Since all the kids were at school/preschool on Tuesday, Anna and I planned a nice long trail ride to explore more of our access to Pachaug State Forest. I have been studying the trail maps and we had plenty of options for our ride. So we saddled up King and Calli and went out for what was planned to be about 2 hrs. In the end, we covered 8.5 miles in 2:40. While galloping up a hill, King managed to overreach and lose one of his hoof boots. Post accident analysis indicates his hooves are probably about half a size smaller than in the spring. Good thing we have more boots in inventory.
Here are some pictures from the ride.
