Blue is back on duty

Blue seems to have recovered from his leg problem.  I took him out this morning and gave him a pretty good workout.  We went about five miles all told, and I kept him at a lively gait for the first 2/3 of our ride.  He's soft and out of shape, of course.  That's why I took it easy on him the last couple of miles. 

When the girls got home from school, they were pleasantly surprised when I asked if they wanted to ride.  You bet they did!

Now I remember why I keep telling people I wouldn't take $10,000 for this horse.  And I mean it.

Nothing, but nothing can replace the good times we are able to share with our grand children !  He is a very fine horse and I know HE enjoyed it all too!
