Docs Sam Peppy, otherwise known as Sammy (or Beans), is Rick's old cutting horse. He is looking pretty tough but is still alert and enjoys life, so who knows how long he'll be around.
My horse activities lately have consisted of . . . doing chores. Oh, and I did go look at a couple of fillies owned by the breeder of the Morgan I once owned. Too much doubt on my part to go there - doubt about how big they would get and their aptitude for dressage; whether I want to deal with a mare; whether I have the time to start a youngster when I'm homeschooling my own youngster. For now I'm pursuing the lease of the horse pictured here; if the owner and I can come up with a lease contract agreeable to us both, I'm hoping to pick him up on February 12. That would be my first opportunity, because my sister just had her first baby and I'm utilizing a free ticket we have to fly to Texas and meet my nephew!
