You'd have to know my wife to fully appreciate the situation. A more horse-crazy female never lived, and unless you believe in miracles, daughter was destined to follow in her footsteps. Wife trail rides Paso Finos constantly- will ride with anybody, anytime, and will furnish the horses to boot. She has many other good qualities, or I would have ditched her years ago (LOL, in case she sees this).
Laughingly told her the other night, what her tombstone was going to be if I outlive her: Picture of her riding in a parade on her favorite mount (a pinto gelding), and underneath, the inscription, "I think I've got time for a short ride. . ." She seemed to think that would be just fine.
She sure does enjoy life, and I guess that's worth something.
