Voodoo Creations offers a variety of safety vests, some with a more polite British tone than the one pictured. But this one states what I'm really feeling--slow down! These may become necessary as people become more lackadaisical driving past horses, and forget what their state's driver's manual says about approaching horses on roadways. I did have to laugh at a lawyer's website discussing road rules for drivers and riders. It stated that riders should clean up after their horses. I'd have to have a pack full of garbage bags on every ride! The scarier the environment, the more bags I'd need. Oh, and my packable avalanche shovel? What's this person thinking? Has anyone out there stopped to scoop your horse's poop off the roadway? Hey, it's free fertilizer--my horses are chemical free!
We got back to the barn while the sun was still high enough on the horizon for John to jump on Ruffy for a short road ride. I walked out Harley, spoiled him with carrots, got dinner dished out for the gang, and had a cup of coffee from the thermos.
