Ride For Life: San Jon

Kino and I took Chopo and Doonie on an adventure this weekend.
We attended the Ride For Life trail ride near San Jon, NM. 

The ride was located at Kelly Boney's Lazy L.B. Ranch...
We arrived the Friday before the two day ride and took the opportunity Saturday morning to ride around the ranch a bit. We came upon one of Kelly's brand new calves, a beautiful bright-white bull-calf.

The early-birds setting up at camp...

Kelly arrives with Princess, riding double...

Kino and I took another opportunity to ride the ranch, this time along with Kelly and her good friends/neighbors to flag the trails for the weekend.

Kino spotted this gorgeous big toad on the way back. These guys usually are quite photogenic, this one was no exception, proud and enjoying the morning sun.

On our first trail ride...

There were over 40 riders on the trail on Saturday, and a lovely day it was...

Sunday dawned a cold and stormy day. A bit of wind, some snow flurries... the second day of the ride was rescheduled for a later date but we and a few others stayed around to ride anyway. 
A few more folks also showed up for a ride and so Kino and I took the lead on the other trail we had marked the day before.

We all had a great time, rode both trails before returning to the empty camp.

We stopped in Santa Rosa on the way back home to walk and water the horses.

We had left home on Friday without buckets, but Kino found a beaver felt hat that did the trick...

In all we all had a great time.

Much Thanks to dad for working the greenbelt with the herd while we took a little weekend vacation.
Glad they also had a good time in Eldorado while we were gone.
