Saturday afternoon late I decided to give Lance some time to exercise himself. I haven't turned him loose to romp since his latest suspensory injury, but figured he's healed and fit enough once again to handle it.
I had left Lance's turnout on to keep the sand off; brushing only gets so much out and it can't feel good between the saddle and his skin. By the time he was done playing he was hot and sweaty, so I uncovered him and we walked to the mailbox to pick up the day's mail and back home to cool out.
Rick got a new camera lens that is supposed to be good for low-light action shots. He tried it out when I rode Lance Sunday afternoon, and it really does work well! I've only begun editing the photos; I'll share some once I'm done.
