Nice! Where was this ?
A place called Sly Park, the upper end of the lake there.
It's off of Highway 50, above the town of Pollock Pines,
if that gives you an idea.
So proud of my boy, the other two horses were a hand or
two taller (Leland's just 14.2!) and much bigger body types,
one a Halflinger and one a Half Draft, and Leland was carrying
MUCH more weight, yet he kept up, we made no concessions
really for his size. He willingly went at or over anything I
put him to, be it hills or clompy bridges or creeks and streams.
Only sweated up under his saddle (in a nice, even pattern thank
goodness and quite a bit of saddle fitting and adjustments!) a
little bit, not his neck or flanks, even though temps were in the
mid-80's that day.
Love, love, LOVE mah boy!
