More Pics from the Avior Ranch

I found a few more pics from the ranch that I liked. Maybe the composition isn't the greatest, but I like them for the content. This is Hernan and his family. I like Hernan. We ride together from time to time, gone to his house for a mountain bike Christmas party. He is an all around nice guy. It was the first time I met his family.

Old horse with a young "teenage" horse. This guy (the four-legged horse) was half grown and friendly. He liked getting his head rubbed. Don't we all?

I thought this horse has an intelligent looking face. Pondering the horse universe.

The Merlin at the ostrich corral.

This is the most evil plant I've ever come across. It is to be avoided at all costs!! This is a guiatoto [sic]. This plant is dangerous! It can cause serious problems for you if you brush against it or worse, fall into a plant. A friend ended up in the hospital with an irregular heartbeat after landing in a pile of this stuff! It instantly burns with an acid-like substance. Your skin will immediately boil and blister you'll experience extreme pain! Fortunately I have come up with a fairly good remedy. 1.) Get home ASAP! 2.)Wash well with Tecnu poison ivy oil remover, 3.) then wash the area well with Betadine soap, and 4.) finally apply Tecnu poison ivy treatment. My last encounter (a large area on my right thigh after brushing against a large plant when riding) this treatment worked very well. The rash was gone in 3 or 4 days.

And finally watching the Pee-Wee motocross racers (and the Merlin) while eating an arepa and enjoying a Pepsi cola. It was a good finale to a great day!

Thanks! I took a ton of pics that day, yet only had a few that were worthy of posting. I put these up mainly for the content. I don't know if any of them are any good. I find the last one of the mini-motocross the most interesting.
