Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

OK most of you have heard me bitch about how sore I am after the two day trip horse back. Well NO MATTER HOW YOU CUT IT there is no tour like one aboard a nice horse.

The first picture is of the whole group that went the second is of the three Rangers together and the last is me about to die from pain. (Amberlily fixed the last picture so the last is now first - thank you very much.) The pictures were taken near the end of the ride. I know you can all tell who is the best mounted of the group - well maybe not of the whole group but for sure the best mount for the Rangers.

that last picture would work better if you move the white section in paint so that it disappears

Yeah I tried that and it makes me look fatter and shorter -0 I couldn't make it cut it out.

That looks like fun! I'm glad you had a good trip. Hopefully you're recovering well. :)

Dee Ice Hole said...

I think he's pretty neat too---I have ridden him a lot for the last 8 years.

The guys used him as the DUDE horse last year. Took me two jabs with the spurs to remind him who I was.
