Irony in Action

Tonka's new Renegade hoof boots arrived last week, and we put them to the test this afternoon. The irony, of course, is in the idea of "Tonka" and the word "renegade" being used in the same sentence. Regardless, he seemed very comfortable and we went a long way up the new local logging road with no trouble whatsoever. He was keen and forward, but I eventually turned him around to protect his heart rather than his feet, since the route is steep and his (our?) condition is flabby. Hooray for the Renegades!


While we were out exploring the neighborhood, Roger was out beating up on the goats. Or were the goats beating up on him?

Let's just hope that Tonka + "Renegade" continues to be ironic...rather than becoming *prophetic*....

Very nice! I'm thinking about taking Kitty's horse, Maddie, out for a stroll. Casey's still not home yet and I'm itching to ride a bit.

I'm a little sad you got black boots instead of pylon orange or cherry red for Mr. Tonks!
