North Shore Trail
|Rhio still has all four shoes here.|
We tried a new arrangement, loading Paco into the trailer first (the first stall has more length and he is longer than Rhio so is a bit squeezed in the back stall) and I was skeptical that Rhio would load, given his past performances being asked to load into small spaces. Well, was I surprised and proved so, so wrong! Rhio walked right into that trailer without even a pause! What a good boy! And it wasn't even a one-time wonder, as he did the same thing loading to come home, and again on the next weekend when we went overnight camping (see upcoming post).
|Just starting out - still shod all the way around.|
|On the way back - you can see only the top of Paco's rump is dry, everything else is drenched in sweat.|
|Rhio is definitely missing the right front shoe, and maybe the left front as well by this point.|
|Both Kelso & Paco look a little tired!|
|And a still-shod hind hoof :)|
Next stop on our fall riding tour - Stony Brook Horse Camp for an overnight and a long conditioning ride. Stay tuned!
