Amy Garland && Double Dutch
Flaxen mane flowing with his movement, a handsome dark chocolate brown Noriker light draft trotted toward the Bowing Creek Trail. His muscular neck was elegantly arched, big brown eyes watching the trail while his large flaxen-feathered hooves thudded a steady beat into the earth. Perched on the Noriker stallion's back was none other than Southern Blues owner Amy Tonya Garland. It was spring again and Amy always somewhat despised the spring simply because of all the thunderstorms and high winds that brought down tree limbs or lightning that cracked whole trees in half. The trails always needed maintenance during the springtime which usually was the last thing Amy had time for.
Now though, with Tanner working more of the administrative side of Southern Blues, it freed up time for Amy to not only keep the trails in safe riding order but also work both Dutch and Captain. With Captain in the pasture for the afternoon, Amy was out and about exercising Double Dutch while making sure no tree limbs were blocking the path from the recent storm.
"Easy boy" Amy murmured, sensing Dutch's happiness bubbling up with every heavy step he took. The draft was happy to be out of his stall for a while.
Dutch nickered, the sound deep and soothing to Amy but as familiar as a human's talking b now. Pushing her intensely curly dark brown hair behind her ear, Amy smiled at her handsome draft. Yes, five foot three and Amy was still riding a sixteen hand draft horse. Anybody that had a problem with it was an idiot and usually promptly ignored. Draft was her baby and she felt bad for not having time to baby him for a while since she'd been working with Captain a lot.
Turning a bend in the trail, Amy sighed. The first victim, a birch tree split in half with one large branch laying across the trail. Reining Dutch to a halt, Amy swung out of the saddle and walked toward the half a tree laying across the trail. Going back to Dutch, Amy pulled a can of orange spray paint out of Dutch's saddle bag. Returning to the tree, Amy pulled the collar of her shirt over her nose and mouth before spraying a large X over the split tree.
