Oh I know it's not spring but today it was so gorgeous! Beautiful sun. Birds singing. The geese and ducks have been flying back and forth from the marsh to the river. My house is in their "fly zone". Today is what I call a "teaser" day. It's just a sample of the good weather to come. But since it's a teaser, it could snow tomorrow.

I took the red pony out for a ride on the hills above Adrian. It's a beautiful view of the Snake River from up there. The valley is dotted with brown patches awaiting new crops. And the snow covered mountains in the distance are a reminder that it is still winter. Thunder didn't show me any deer today. The motorcycle rides had spooked them off. The mud had dried out quite a bit and it was wonderful to able to cruise at a trot. He really only haad one hard spook all day when he got a whiff of where some critter had marked it's territory. Wheweee it was stong and stinky, but there are lots of different critters up there so who knows what left it. But he didn't want to stick around and find out either!

It was a really great day and I will be glad when I have this ankle all healed and it doesn't stab me with a pain now and then. I need to start riding Blue too! I'm supposed to be going to a specialist and find out what they plan to do with the multiple grade 2 tears that still exist. Spring is on the way and I have things to do, horses to ride and places to see!
