Trailside Snapshots – Meeting Some Four Legged Friends

We’re From the Internet. We Come in Peace.

You make me feel like sayin’… FOXY

On our last dirt ride, while I was standing around having a drink I saw something scuttling across the field. It was a couple hundred yards away so I couldn’t make out what it was. At first I thought it was a dog. But as it skulked closer to us, I realized it was a fox.

It sure was a mangey lookin’ bugger. Even so, it was still cute in an I might have rabies kind of way. I had no idea at the time but apparently Long Island has a booming fox population.

Neigh Baby, Neigh!

Look at this cool guy. Isn’t he cute?

He totally looks like he’s smiling. I think Kenny had just told him that old joke ~ “A horse walks into a bar. The bartender says, why the long face?

Cool Guy here just might be giving Rockstar Horse a run for his money in the awesome horse department.

Having a motorcycle that can go anywhere really opens you up to seeing parts of the world that are hidden from the road. That is my favorite part of riding the Husky.

One of the things that I’ve always said interest me about off-road riding is that you have the opportunity to see things that you might not when you’re on your streetbike. Getting to see animals that aren’t squished is always a treat.

On our last ride, Chloe and I saw deer and a red fox. For a kid who loves animals that was a major score. But, my favorite animal of the day was Rockstar Horse. He was hanging out doing horse-things with his friends in a corral at the edge of the property.

We parked our bikes up on a hill and walked down to take a look. I’ve heard it said that horses get kind of creeped out when they can’t see your eyes, so Chloe and I took our helmets off as we approached them.

Check out that sweet Andy Warhol hairdo!

Look at ‘im. He’s all hipster-pony and “Whatevs, I was totally into Band of Horses before they got big.”  I just love this guy.

Do horses get winter coats or are some just naturally more shaggy than others?
