R- Fine Beel.
B- How are you feeling after our birthday ride with my daughter yesterday?
R- I did not ride Beel.
B- Well, no. I guess not. But how are you feeling today, anyway?
R- Fine Beel. Hungry.
B- Well, we did spend almost 5 hours on the trail yesterday. Lots of different weather conditions and trail conditions. It started off sunny...
Then it got cool
Then it rained a little again.
R- The trail went up a lot in places Beel. We the horses were glad you the peoples getted off to walk.
R- There were rocks in the trail Beel.
B- A big storm seemed to be brewing to the north.
B- At this point we decided to turn right at the next junction to dodge the storm,
R- Picnics are good.
B- And the trail leading away from the lake looked kinda cool!
R- The kid was picnicking all day. He was bad. Your girl kid taked the food from him a lot.
R- The kid finally stopped eating when we got on the black-hard-car-road. Your girl kid was very happy. She may be crazy.
R- We the horses were not scared on the black-hard-car-road.
B- Maybe not scared of the cars, but the guard-rail sure spooked you. And when things make you jump, you have to touch them, don't you Ranger.
R- I tried to touch the scary rail but you standed in the way.
B- The rest of the ride went fine, though. Got home just as it started raining HARD.
B- After we were home for a little while, I heard a commotion across the street at the livery. One of their horses slammed it's head into the side of the trailer while stepping out, and impaled it's sinuses on a small slotted hook on the wall. Blood everywhere. Looks like she is going to be okay, but you never looked up from the feeder, Ranger. And you flip out every time something goes wrong with those horses, like some of them getting out. Why didn't the blood bug you any?
R- I am only unhappy when they break the rules. There is no rule against blooding.
B- That's right, I had an old veterinarian tell me once while working on an injured horse that "A horse is born pre-destined to die at a certain time and place, and they spend their whole lives LOOKING FOR IT!"
R- You are crazy Beel.
