I managed to steal away on Z for some saddle time. She and I left the property, thinking to ride the trail. We went up the road, about 1/2 mile from home and I was watching the sun drop in the sky and the temps drop and darn it, decided to hang out there for a bit before turning for home.
It was nice to ride her though and I was so pleased that she was willing to leave the herd and barn with me w/o no argument after the little bit of time I've spent with her over the last 2 months.
I'm longing for warmer days and longer sunlight.
