Another Tough Sucker for Hillbillie Willie

Monday April 8 2019

Hilbillie Willie had a terrific seasonal debut in the Owyhee Tough Sucker 50 mile ride this weekend.

We rode with "Uncle Mal" and Naomi, "Cousin Hawk" and Lee, perfect mentors for this young whippersnapper Standardbred racehorse-turned-endurance horse.

Here are a few shots from the scenic (green!) desert ride along the Snake River, around Wild Horse Butte, over the Oregon Trail.

Love the long Standie neck, no?

That's the Snake River
