The Yellow Dumbbell

Ok, so my hair looks a little goofy sticking out from my helmet!  You might also notice how Red looks a bit like a raccoon right now - he has shed his lighter colored winter hair around his eyes and his darker summer coat is showing there.  This is a common Arab trait. 

Heading north from the barn. If you look closely, you'll see Kelso ahead right by the snowbank.  It's amazing how much he blends into his surroundings.  I guess know I know why so many hunting dogs come in spotted coat patterns!

Red & Kelso & I headed up the road to Rhio & Cricket's barn 1 mile away to ride with Christine & Tomas and Kathy & Winston.  The three of us then headed out into the snowy trails out back.  The three horses did great together, and we were able to trot a fair amount.  We traded off positions in the group and everyone seemed content.  We did about 2 1/2 miles in pretty deep snow, so the horses got a decent workout.

Kathy & Winston - just sitting on our ponies and chit-chatting :)

Christine & Tomas enjoying our powwow.

Killian came along, too, and insisted on bringing his favorite rubber dumbbell.  He did drop it out in the hayfield, but picked it up again on the way home.  

Notice the dumbbell in the lower right!

When he's not carrying it around, he's rolling on it.
