These two pictures are of my friend and her horse Fawn. Fawn is only 3.
My next favorite horse to watch was a pretty little strawberry roan. She actually looks smaller than she is in these pictures, because the gal who rode her was about 6' tall. One of the things I thought was cool about this horse, besides her ability to work a cow, was that outside she was as calm as could be. At one point her owner was riding her around the staging area without a bridle or anything on. She just had the reins looped around her chest. It was a cool thing to watch.

So the day is still early but I probably still won't ride. It just doesn't seem fair to make them work and get hot and sweaty and then throw them back out into a cold pasture. Hopefully it will warm up a little this week. Keeping my fingers crossed!
