Around The Pasture in 80 Days, Rodney Finishes The Virtual Tevis, 100 Miles, 80 Days


Awareness of the outside world. Patti & Ricki: Normalize Inclusion with Fashion is for Every Body & Ex Urbe: Medical Leave Reflections plus Empathy Sphere Essay.

Two horses in the clubhouse.

Numbers this week; thoughts next week. Yes, I am squeezing out every possible ounce of blogging juice from this. The Virtual Tevis was our main summer/autumn activity.

Rodney missed the same 11 vet and weather days as Milton.
… missed 5 more days due to shoeing.
… did 3 solo days once Milton finished.
… did 4 extra days as to make up for “non-trail” miles.

5 rides under one mile.
27 rides 1 to 2 miles.
22 rides 2 to 3 miles.
3 rides over 3 miles.

Longest ride – 3.1 miles. Doing trot sets to the corner.
Shortest ride – 0.63. Rodney by himself, complaining about the footing every step of the way.

Longest stretch of daily riding – 14 days, Milton.

Tortoise Power!

Data Dump – Rodney

Friday, October 1 – .91 miles, 23 minutes
Saturday, October 2 – 1.01 miles, 40 minutes. Two minor fusses over bushwhacking in the wilds of his own pasture. [Fit The First]
Sunday, October 10 – 2.54 miles, 1 hour 8 minutes. Aiming for three miles to end on a long note. No dice. Had to stop due to Milton having tack issues.
