We're still busy picking up, cleaning up, doing paperwork, working on photos from the Owyhee Fandango. Jose, who did two days of 50's, looks great. Rhett, who did 80 miles on day 3 with Steph, looks great. After the last of the rigs left this morning, we turned the herd loose in the big pasture. They sprinted out to the nearest piles of leftover horse food - hay, grain, alfalfa - and started eating.
I haven't had time to start any stories, but here are a couple of short videos from day 2, riding Jose through a really cool twisting and turning sand wash. The walls of the wash were 8 feet high at places, and sometimes it squeezed together so tightly we had to walk through it.
I did the first video sideways before I remembered to hold the camera the right way (know the html code for rotating videos, anybody?)(or just hold your computer sideways). The second one is the right way.
Jose was having a BLAST ripping through this wash, ears pricked forward, eagerly looking forward to zipping around the next corner.
