Ladies Night #7: The Ladies had all received an email earlier in the week from Rachel informing us that she'd split us in two groups and what time we should plan to arrive for our final Ladies Night.
I had been placed in the first group who were scheduled to ride in the mid-afternoon. We were returning to Fiddleback Ranch which had been set up on this night so we could all try our luck at sorting cows.
Bless this horse for his patience! He stood quietly while my Cowgirl Pal, Kyle helped me put the boots on. But when I went to lead Bob down to the arena it was obvious that he'd never had something like this on his legs before. His first dozen steps were comical as he raised his feet high in the air and tried to adjust to their feel. I was so grateful that he quickly adjusted to wearing them. But that seems to be Bob. He checks out what's new and once he's assured it's OK, he moves on.
The time seemed to fly by. Suddenly it was time for us to call it quits so the cows could take a break and we could get loaded up and on our way before the next group of Ladies arrived.
There was a feeling of sadness as we all loaded up and followed each other down the road, waving out our windows to the second group who were now arriving. As we broke off on our various directions towards our homes hands waved outside open windows and truck horns honked farewell.
Ladies Night 2011 - A definite success!
