Klein and Zuli racing around in the New Mexico desert in 2010.

Klein, Zuli, and Zeb have reunited after 6.5 years of not seeing each other!  They lived together for a couple years in New Mexico and went on rides regularly together.  They always got along and we had a great time no matter where we went with Zuli or Zeb, and their mom.  She is one of the reasons I couldn't wait to get back to the desert.

Klein doing her best Chinchilla impression in New Mexico. Zuli was not impressed.

Zuli and Klein in New Mexico again.

Zuli and Klein reunited.

Back to enjoying each other's company on adventures.

We were so excited for them to see each other and as soon as Klein saw Zuli approaching in the distance she nickered to him.  She doesn't normally do that so I knew she recognized him.  They quietly sniffed noses almost like they were like "Is it really you?!" and we went off on our ride like 6.5 years had never passed since the last ride.

Yesterday Zeb and Klein reunited and enjoyed a ride around the desert just like they did 6.5 years ago.  Again it was like no time had passed.  Zuli was so happy to see Klein again and immediately said hi to her.  They sniffed noses some more and Zuli seemed to be saying "IT REALLY IS YOU!  You're really here!!!"  Zeb and Klein sniffed several times as well.  No squeals or stomps with either of the boys.  She was like "Hi guys, so, I'm back, how have you been for the past 6.5 years?!"  

Me on Zeb in 2011 or 2012.

Klein and Zeb 30 seconds after seeing each other for the first time in 6.5 years.  It really is like no time has passed at all.

Out exploring the desert just like we used to.

This is one of the coolest parts of this whole moving around the country life.  I am so happy to have one of my closest friends and her wonderful horses just down the road again.  We have soooo many adventures in our future! 

Klein, Zuli, Ruger, and Zeb.

More from our ride yesterday.

Conditioning heaven.  Unbelievable that this is just a walk down the road.

If you are able to zoom in, you can see The Strip in the distance, really cool view.

Walking back to the barn.

Hey, what's up?  Ah, nothing, just been touring the East Coast, doing horse things, eventing, dressaging, winning national awards, going to the beach, whatever.  Cool, wanna go ride in the desert like we used to?  Yeah!  Let's go!
