The Remuda

re·mu·da
rəˈmo͞odə/
noun
NORTH AMERICAN
  1. a herd of horses that have been saddle-broken, from which ranch hands choose their mounts for the day.
This is part of our remuda.  V and her boyfriend Mike came here for the weekend and went on a ride around the farm Sunday.  I think this was Mike's second time on a horse.  Still, he was game for a long ride.
 Mike rode Hank, V was back on her 4-H mount Jessica, and J took Brother while I was on my favorite, Otoelene.
 Somehow, my camera got switched to "fish eye" lens sometime during the ride.  I really don't know what the point of this setting is other than to annoy me when I get back and see these wonky pictures.
 I was wondering why I was having trouble getting Otoelene's ears in the picture.
 When we got back to the barn V wanted me to take her picture with Mike.  It was then that I knew something was wrong.  Hank is really not shaped like that.
So I did manage to get a somewhat decent picture of them after correcting the camera setting. 
Then later, V took one for me.  The horses did great and I don't think Mike got sore at all.  Now if I could just figure out how to get some tourist in here and charge for a farm tour we'd have something.

Looks like a nice ride, I wonder who actually likes the fish eye setting?
