Double - I'm sure Banjo would love to help another young rider. He's always been such a good boy. Take it Sugar has claimed Junior for herself and Banjo's kinda the 3rd wheel now? How will Sugar be by herself if you leave her at home when you go trail riding? That was my only big concern when we sold Rocket is that 1 horse would be left home for the whole weekend if we went camping since we were down to 3 and always take 2 with us. They were all ok with it since we've done the separation pastures plenty to get them less buddy bound, but I still kinda felt bad for the one left home to not have a friend.
Connie - I hear ya on the wood. We get most of ours from a local pallet place now. It's the outside slabs anywhere from 3-8 inches thick and 8-18 feet long. They load the slabs on the trailer for a nominal fee and all that really has to be done when we get it home is cut it to fireplace or woodburner length and stack it. We've got a friend who is supposed to come out sometime this month to land a bunch of dead trees the horses picked out that they didn't like. He said he'd do it for just the wood. Took down our round pen so the trees won't land on it. Kinda weird to not see it up after 9+ years.
Heading to TX next week for work. Not planning on camping this weekend, but would like to possibly ride somewhere on Saturday. We went to Wolf Creek last Sunday and had a good couple hour ride. They have really cleaned up the trails over there where it's enjoyable to ride again instead of having to duck and dodge tree limbs every couple seconds.
