Pony Express II: Horse Barn Overnight

Our plan for the Pony Express includes an overnight stop at about the half-way point, in Wright City just west of St. Louis.

We stay at Rocking E Ranch which offers excellent horse and human accommodations.

The stop is mostly to give Slammer a good night's barn rest and the chance to stretch out and run around in a nice large pasture.

A great night's sleep and hearty breakfast is also very much appreciated by the rest of us!

During our morning walk, I took this team photo... and got a couple of sweet candids!

Slammer is a character, and I'm told he likes to smell a human's breath.

Sam gave Happy some reassurance that she is at least as well-loved as the horse!
