First off; weather report. Those of us dying of heat stroke in the Nebraska/Iowa area had our reprieve: five days of decent weather. Unfortunately, I had things to do and couldn’t haul out but did take advantage and rode quite a bit here at home.
The drought is pretty much ruining all the corn crops. This field next to our home is not irrigated. And it looks better than a lot of which I see when driving to work. As we rode through the waterways of the field, I felt like I was riding near harvest time, not early August.
I think they must be fairing a little better over in neighboring Iowa. This is a shot of Christine’s (Team #15) mare, Bling. Her elegant neck overlooking the green landscape made for a stunning picture and I thank her for letting me share it with you.
This week’s milestones:
- Leigh (Team #10) was on Lilly-mule as she crossed the 900 mile marker
- MeMe (#68) and Hollie (#23) are now over 600 miles
- Sarah (#58) is now over 500 miles
