Juanita and I have been riding 2 or 3 times a week for the last month. Her horse Washoe has been behaving himself (for the most part. Just occasional snacking on the trail.) And Alloy hasn't dumped me on the ground so far.
Ten rides now.
I really hope I didn't just jinx it...
This spring has had it's normal pollen season that seems to be just about over. Riding down the trails, if you bump a tree limb the yellow cloud poofs down around you. It kind of cool looking. But the pollen does settle down all over everything.
One of our guests came in and told me about some prints on the back of her car. The pollen was acting like fingerprint powder and showed everyplace the car had been touched.
For reasons I do not fully understand, I decided to "roll" my face across the back window. The next morning, THIS showed up.
I find it to be equal parts cool and terrifying....
