The views, from horse back in Oregon

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital City 970700173

We have had fog in the Willamette Valley of Oregon for about a week, it's getting old.  But on Wednesday the fog rolled out and there was sun!  Having got all of my work done earlier in the day, I decided to tack up and go for a short ride down the driveway, around the grass field and into the wood.


Riding on the edge of the field was magnificent, the sun was warm, and the dogs had a blast running around.  Once inside the trees however, most of the trails were to wet and slick, causing my horse to slip several times.  We went slow, choosing our path carefully, working our way back home.  It's going to have to dry out some more before we use those trails again.  :(

You seem to be one with your horse. What this a cornfield or hay field?

Make it a great week!

I loved going along for the ride.  I could a little drying out and more sunshine and warmer weather down in GA too.

It's been a long time since I've been on a horse. I'd be a little nervous riding while it's wet and slippery.

Looks like you had a good horse-ride. Hope it dries out soon, for you and the horse to go out there again.

Thanks for stopping by my blog Judi K Barrett . A dear friend of mine, started out as a client actually, has the same disease in her neck, and can no longer ride.  She was my trail riding partner, I do miss our long trail rides in the mountains.
