Rebecca Farm Days One and Two

After two days on the road-- traveling through northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana-- we finally made it safe and sound to the unbelievable, indescribably beautiful place that is Rebecca Farm. People had warned beforehand of this event's grandeur and beauty, but I was still blown away! No photograph or description can really capture how insanely gorgeous it is here. Dually travelled real well, given some of his previous histories, and settled into the temporary stabling like a champ.

On Tuesday, after a light hack out around the property (where Dually discovered his mortal foe: the unmoving pivot irrigator! haha), Papa and I joined up with Gina Miles, her family, and Bec Braitling for a little whitewater rafting up in Glacier National Park! It was a really fun way to spend the afternoon and had us all wondering what we were doing at a horse show all day when we could be relaxing on the Flathead River ;). That afternoon, I jogged Dually out for Gina to see what we'd need to do in the next 36 hours before the real jog on Thursday morning. Fortunately, there were no major issues and Dually got put away with a general gold star for good behavior after two days straight of heavy shipping and no riding. Fingers crossed he can keep up the good attitude, and especially the good eating and drinking!

Here are some photos:
