I love the idea of a walk through gate.
This is on Mt. Rogers to keep the wild ponies out of some areas.
I wish we could do this on our farm but I know it wouldn't work for the goats. Well, nothing munch works for them anyway.

I have a new feature here at the 4 R's, the Trail Cam. J got a trail cam for Christmas and V finally got it set up for him earlier this month. He just went and brought it in. He got two pretty good pictures.

J actually started the ride Friday by chasing Jessica across the ridge and maybe cussing at her.

Finishing up the last minute details before we leave for the Iron Mt. Jubilee.
And an update on yesterday's Good Fence post, it was a dead salamander.

We hauled Brother and Jessica to the location of the start of the endurance ride yesterday for a practice run.

If you recall, we had a recent trip to Mt. Rogers where we hiked. This time J and I went with the Saddle Club, camped and rode. It's a much nicer way to travel.
Brother got a good grooming and I had just settled down with a good book when a rider came back in from the trail. His horse had thrown a shoe. The rider was in his late 60's with a bad back but could shoe and there was another gentleman in camp with additional health problems but that carried some farrier equipment with him. So, between the 2 of them they managed to get the thrown shoe back on and my shoe pulled, straightened and back on.
(imagine cute pony picture with tiny mule foal with big ears inserted here)
We had 2 great days of riding with beautiful weather and Brother had his first overnight ride and did wonderful. Jessica is geared up and should be ready to do 30 miles this coming Saturday. J, I'm not so sure about.
