Thanks to all, who managed time from their busy scheduled, to attend our June trail ride. We did not have a big turn out but the ride was wonderful.
During the ride we encountered a fawn on the trail, that wasn't more than 20 minuntes old. I'm sure we scared the mother away because she was no where to be seen. The poor fawn was scared to death but no more than my darn horse who thought the little thing was a big bad monster. We manage to get past the fawn without incident and continue. The woods were teaming with wildlife and our next sight was of a Bobcat, streaking across the underbrush. You would think that was enough for one day but once again we encounter animals, this time a herd of deer bounded out , into the road, in front of our group. A member of our gang, who chooses to remain anyomous, showed us how not to do a quick dismount from a spinning horse.
The ride was held in Valhalla, the weather was wonderful (and we only encoutered one horsefly). On the return to the trailhead we had lunch under the oaks and enjoyed each other company. FYI: I did return to the trail later that day to insure mama did not desert the fawn because of our intrusion. I was relieve to see, she and her baby went looking for a more private home.
PS: A very big thanks to Celeste Gavin and Polly for working so hard on clearing and marking the trails. When you see them remember to let them know how much you appreciate their efforts.
