Maya, my niece, flew in from Seattle to spend a couple days of her spring break from Santa Clara University to ride with her ol’Auntie. Yippee!
On Saturday we loaded up the horses and rode in the Eagle Foothills, in Idaho, for the afternoon. I had just trimmed Granite so his Easyboot Gloves fit him perfectly and Hawk had his EasyShoe Sports that I glued on front his feet two weeks ago (Jumping In Feet First), so the boys were ready to forge thru the muddy trails.

We took Hawk, sporting his Sports with Gloves on the hinds, and my new mare, Greta, on our first “away from home” trip. I had fitted Greta previously with #1.5 Gloves on her front feet and #0.5’s on her hinds. The hinds did not fit as nicely as I hoped but her feet are still in transition. The Gloves stayed on perfectly and in place even while trotting thru the rocks at Celebration Park; though I will be adding some pink Power Straps to her hind boots this week. I think she will eventually be in size #1’s on her front feet and the #0.5's will fit perfectly after a few more trims.

Here is one of the many remains of stone homes/foundations along the Snake River. This home was occupied by Doc Hisom who lived at Halverson Bar for 40 years. Doc Hisom died at the age of 94 in 1944.
