Trip to the Springer Cabin

We just got back from a trip up to the Springer's cabin!  It was SO much fun :)  We took the dogs and two of the horses along and they actually did better than I thought they would.  We brought the electric tape for the horses and set up paddocks in the meadow.  And we took them out almost every day riding and did a ton of loping.  Sometimes it seems like Quatahn doesn't have more than one brain cell - he is pretty weird.  The second day I rode him out and he was so freaked out about leaving his mare that he couldn't think about walking on the trail.  Then when I circled him around he bucked in a circle and then got mad and reared up :)  He doesn't do either one of those very well so it wasn't scary and I didn't fall off :) lol   Other than that, nothing unexpected happened.  We went hiking, played dominos, read out loud, shot guns and had a great time.  There was no running water or electricity in the cabin of course so we had to heat up our water for washing the dishes (what dishes we had) on the wood stove.  One of my favorite things about camping is sleeping in a sleeping bag :)  I don't know why, but I have always liked that.

We put the trailer in the horse's paddock and tied a tarp over it to two trees for a shelter

My horse is kind of discontent - she paces whenever we move her to a new pasture - she wore a path in the front yard :)

She hit the cup! :)
