The horsey network had sorted out a place to stay near Brady. John Hecox had a large new machinery shed I could shelter in, with plenty of grass around it for the horses. I arrived early so John took me for a drive up to the family holiday house on the Jeffrey Reservoir. He also let me borrow his pick-up so I could drive into Brady to buy needed supplies.
John with lovely girlfriend Samantha and Lakota Sioux friend Mike, who gave me a little good luck charm..
and of course he has his faithful hound Snoop..
Freezing rain set in during the evening, so I was thankful Frank had given me permission to bring the horses into the shed if necessary, which I did. Lady was fine but thin-skinned Mo was shaking like a leaf. I piled saddle pads and tarpaulins on him, and with the inside blower heater he soon warmed up.
