It was great to have a long weekend albeit the weather wasn’t all that wonderful. I still managed to get some rides in, joining a few other Derby riders; Corie of #47 Pinky and the Boys and Leigh of #10 Half-Assed at Branched Oak today.
Saw some great pictures on Facebook. Peggy #60 Montana Spots once again goes all out in costume. Her horse sports LED battery-operated lights duct-taped to the leg wraps or sitting in the saddle bags. The dogs have reflective collars in addition to their lights. “Everyone needs a Dalmatian to go with their Appaloosa!” says Peggy.
I also saw this picture of Christine #15 Team Purple on her good mare, Bling. This picture captured what yesterday looked like in these parts. Gray and windy. But despite the weather, this is a beautiful shot.
Mile Marker Updates
- Juanita Team 41 hit 1,900 miles

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Five full weeks of the Derby yet to go.
