My neighborhood looked like a typical suburban neighborhood, but there was a secret lurking behind some of those houses.

|Chipper in Cathy's backyard|

But the best part of the ride came near the Morrison Nature Center. We crossed paths with a group of moms and kids.
One of the kids saw us and shouted, "Horses!"
We rode past them just a bit, stopped and settled our mounts and asked, "Would you like to pet them?"
They petted them and fed them all the carrots Diana and I had in our saddlebags.
I can't be certain, but I bet at least one those kids goes home and draws a picture of Guaranteed or Stealth tonight.
It's been a long, hard week in an uncertain world, but today there were horses, and for that, I am grateful.
