I Sure Am Going To Miss That Little Girl
Athletes are easier to teach to ride than people who have already had years of riding lessons. Ruthann is an athlete. She learned to ride in the blink of an eye. She rides hard--faster than I prefer and through terrain that I would not choose to go through.
She put hundred of miles on her mustang, Medicine Dog. She turned Medicine Dog from a good trail horse into a great trail horse. Not long ago she rode Medicine Dog down for her first trip to the James river and this photo was from that trip.
Unfortunately, Ruthann is grown. As a result thereof, she has a job and adult responsibilities. Her job as an Air Force nurse is requiring her to move to Alaska. Friday we had our last ride together. She told Medicine Dog good bye and is about to drive off to Alaska.
On the way she will be stopping off in Michigan to get married. That boy is luckier than I expect that he realizes.
