Gettysburg Treasure

A friend at work just got back from a big Civil War Re-enactment in Gettysburg.  He was there for two weeks and had a great time.  Despite the oppressive heat and humidity the re-enactors were out there in heavy wool uniforms- can you imagine?

Today he came back to work- and brought me a big surprise :)

Check out these beauties!
I can't wait to have them put on a bridle for Cartman- being plain bay, he really could pass for a cavalry horse.  Thank you, Jim!

After work Michelle and I jetted up to do a short ride on the trails.  It's kind of funny, we rode for an hour and forty minutes (a short ride).  Several years ago that would have been a REALLY long ride for me!
