Back Country Traveling Companions
Meet my two back country traveling companions. "Little Guy" (LG) is the gray Appaloosa, and his buddy "Dottie" is the dark buckskin. Unlike LG she is of known parentage, a registered Tennessee Walking Horse. A more unevenly matched pair of equines would be very difficult to find. LG is a short, stumpy gelding with a great personality and keen intellect. Dottie is a tall elegant mare with a tremendous gait and the habit of trying to spin her rider into the ground when troubled. Rumor has it that LG is actually a registered Arabian hiding out from all those women endurance riders, while Dottie's spinning results whenever anyone mentions her registered name Merry Rendezvous. She just wants to fit in with the rest of us who don't have registration papers.
