We have a harness on order but Zany has been so good Linda decided to
give him a head start.
the way to the ranch the other day we spotted a sign for a barn sale.
We stopped to take a peak and discovered some interesting
tack with silver
embelishment. The prices were too good to pass up so we
bought a whole bunch of bridles and halters. We were
extremely pleased when the bridle Tango is wearing (on the left) sold

flew him to Guatamala every six weeks to shoe their olympic horses.
These days he sticks to local horses. He still
seems to always have wild stories to tell.
May 4th and we're in Arbuckle for the Carnitas cookoff.
Linda, Leo and
Mary Lou load their plates and wait for Dave (the
photographer) to join them. Leo & MaryLou's next door
