It’s an annual migration to Colorado in late April or early May! And it’s a good thing too, as the temperatures in Scottsdale are almost in triple digits. We love being able to enjoy riding and the outdoors every day! And the horses….. well, the horses are just different here. They look better, more alive, taller, shinier! There is no way to fully describe it.
By now, it’s our 6th year here, they know where they are. They know the routine. Koyote comes off the trailer and gaits right down the barn aisle to his stall. He’s so smart! We need to get them adjusted to the grass, but that is about it.
I guess by now, we know the routine too. We were unpacked that night and we started riding the very next day! Even by our standards, that was fast. The only change for us is that we are getting older – but what’s wrong with more wine on the porch watching the elk or deer graze across the street? Perhaps this is the year without the laundry list of projects. Bring on the trail rides in the mountains, new journeys to Taos, maybe visiting the LONE RANGER movie set and just enjoying each wonderfully clear, crisp Colorado morning.
We’d love to share Colorado with you! Come and meet the Marchador and share our passion.
As always, thanks to Ned Leigh for taking such good care of our horses during the ride here. www.nedleighequinefocus.com
