I’m impressed! Ya’ll were guessing pretty close! We’d love to hear a few more replies on what your guesses were! And just a side note, that weight will probably change by about, mmmm, maybe 15 pounds. We were just donated a decent saddle for Richard to use on Satchmo. It fits him much better than the one that used to fit him when we left home, it is comfortable for Richard, and it is a few pounds lighter. We are grateful for that generous donation and anxious to see if it helps Satchmo. He does not need to suffer through another saddle sore the likes of the one he is recovering from.
Please pray for us as we head out tomorrow for Lexington. We have been laying low for nearly a week as Richard got very sick. I guess that’s what happens when you ride in the pouring rain for days and days on end. We are asking that the Lord would grant us a second (or 20th?) wind, that we would have supernatural energy, strength, health, safety, and endurance to finish this journey that He has laid before us. We are very, very weary currently, and are desperately asking for this in prayer. The Lord has kindly granted us both with an unwavering determination to finish- a miracle in itself. But we do need His strength at this point, as always. Please extend all of those prayer requests to the horses and Bella as well. The horses are as weary as we are. We may also move blogs to every other day for a while to lighten the work load until we find some more energy! Thank you once again for all of your loving support in so many ways. If all goes well, we should be to Lexington in about 10 days.
