We don’t usually pick up new horses in the fall but when the Todd Mountain Guest Ranch was shutting its doors last October, we couldn’t resist bringing home a few of their great horses. The horses spent an easy winter lazing in our pasture but are starting work now, and they’re all we’d hoped they’d be. That’s me (Joanne) on Texas, a big, strong, gentle Appaloosa, and Gene on Rio, a solid-coloured, very sweet registered Paint horse. Look for them (and Charlie Cache, too!) on the trails in Campbell Valley Park.
