Look Ma, No Training Wheels!
Big Cowpoke has graduated to two wheels! Mr. Cowboy has been trying to get Big Cowpoke to take off the training wheels on his dirt bike for a while now. But Big Cowpoke wasn't sure about that. So, for the last two years he has ridden his bike with training wheels. Then Friday we took them off! Big Cowpoke has been a riding fool. We took the four wheelers and his dirt bike out in the pasture and rode around for a few hours. Then we planned a trip for Saturday to go up to the National Forest to go trail riding. We were so excited. We loaded up and headed up to the National Forest. When we got there the trail was closed. There had been a fire and some of the woods were still smoking! So, we drove all the way up there for nothing. A hour and 45 minute drive. But on the way home we stopped by the Motocross track that is about 4 minutes from our house for Big Cowpoke to see what that is like. He wasn't too sure about the big hills . So, before we go on the big track, we are going to try to hit the trails in a few weeks and let him get a feel of something other than fault muddy pasture. I do have to say, he fell with his bike three times and he didn't even cry. He was fine and grateful he was wearing all his padding. I am excited he now has something that he actually begs to go and do. He likes to ride horses, but I never hear him begging to go ride. I can't wait until I find his one real passion. I love horses, Mr. Cowboy loves bullriding (the sick man), Little Cowpoke loves Peanut, and Cowpokette just wants to ride horses all the time. Well, for now at least. She has plenty of time to change her mind.
