so... life in the AZ desert has been on a bit of a hiatus! Not really- life's gone on, I just 'got out of the habit' of posting. But I hope to change that. Right now, I'm watching some DVR'ed television, and waiting for a giraffe to have a baby!! (no, really... there's a giraffe in New York state that's pregnant (her name is April), and they have a live cam in her pen, waiting to stream the birth when it happens. I've been checking in on her a few times a day for the last few weeks, now, I think?? Apparently giraffes are pregnant for a VERY long time, and I guess they don't know exactly what her due date is.
but, while I wait for that, here's a few photos from last weekend!! Tom gave me a trail ride for my birthday last May, and we finally got it scheduled last weekend while the weather is beautiful (and cool!)... it was at an equestrian center on the Indian Reservation about 20 miles away from where we live.
|Tom and me, in front of a herd of wild horses that live on the Reservation... |
we actually got to walk right up to, and through, that group of horses.
it was so cool!!
|our guide, BRASS (I had his name wrong). he was really interesting! The Indians keep |
an eye on the horses, and sometimes do capture some
of them to break for riding.
