Pony Express: Horseplay!

As expected after a big dinner last night, we all crashed hard and slept in a bit this morning. First things first, Charlie got complete room service treatment of oats, fresh water, juicy new hay and a thorough stall cleaning. By all accounts, he is in excellent shape and is showing no signs of stress from the trip so far... Way to go Charlie!

After that, we had some breakfast and succumbed to the need for a little extra napping. We're now all up, feeling pretty well and have a few hours on our hands before departure. So, it seemed like a good time for a little horseplay. Using the horse head mask we brought with us -- and one that's on hand here at the ranch -- we had a little fun with Charlie and a few of the residents.

Sam and Kelsie are going to give Charlie some time in the pasture, then give themselves some time in the pool. I'm going to give Darth some time at the fuel pump, then give myself some quiet time with a book. Before you know it, we'll be loading up to leave for Fort Collins.

Stay tuned for updates from the road!
