|Ruby is always ready for the trails. ALWAYS.|
The morning did get off to a bit of a disastrous start when I hooked the trailer and the truck kept throwing a brake system error code -- SIGH. Since about February I have been intermittently getting that code and generally just unplugging the brakes, wiggling the outlet, and plugging it back in fixes the issue, but the brakes chose violence on Sunday and WOULD. NOT. COOPERATE. Originally DH thought the issue was the aftermarket bumper on the truck (whoever wired it in did a... uhhhh... questionably job, lol), but after more digging he thinks its related to some brake control module so a new one is on its way and hopefully that fixes the issue. Anyway, cue lots of panic, but friend who was riding Trigger saved the day by just bringing her truck over and hooking to my trailer. It made for a slightly later than planned start, but since the day was so (relatively) cool, it didn't matter much!
|I looooove riding across the dam. It's my favorite part of this trail!|
|Only one of the creeks had any water and Ruby immediately started slurping. She's such a good girl, she takes care of herself on the trail.|
|Afterwards we sponged off the horses (I got these cool water carrying cubes I need to post about!) and then settled in for a picnic lunch.|
