Aiken Arrival

We pulled into Jumping Branch last night at about 6.  It was a fairly uneventful drive, and Taco was his usual quiet self in the trailer.

We settled him into his stall and went to find our hotel, the Hotel Aiken.  FYI, it is a major bar scene on Saturday nights, and the pet friendly rooms face the entrance to the bar.  Luckily we were able to drown out most of the noise with the HVAC unit under the front window.

I've been out to feed and turn T out this morning, and he is bright-eyed and cheerful.  He immediately rolled in the sand pit in the middle of his paddock.

Then he surveyed his domain.

Hi Mom, what's next?

I'll get on him this afternoon and we can hack around and explore.

And lastly, Crescent is having a good time.  He stood guard while I cleaned Taco's stall this morning.
