Mingo and the River

There is no way around our first river crossing.  Of course, it gets even higher than this--those are the days we don't cross at all.  We will ride up and down the hill leading to the river.  Unfortunately, it is only about 15 minutes round trip at a walk.  Alas, the river causes us much frustration.

Mingo is a brave and very careful horse when it comes to crossing high rivers.  He takes one slow step after the next.  He has never completely fallen in, like Cruiser, but he has slipped and "sat down" in the water.

That sucks about the river being in your way. Growing up it was always the highways that caused me frustration. Our parents wouldn't let us cross them. We had a bunch of roads to ride around on inside of the highways though. :)
