The nights are staying in the 30's and 40's, so I would imagine it won't be long before we'll be complaining because it HOT....!!! Just can't please us I guess.  

Our plan on keeping Turbo in for a couple of days didn't happen.  The 2nd night when John and Linda were letting everyone but him out at bedtime, he decided he wasn't staying in a pen by himself all night again, and tried to climb out of the pen.  That was scary enough, that the gate was immediately opened and we took a chance on letting him out, in the dark for the night.  I don't know if any of us slept well, but the next morning, when we looked out he was with the herd.  WHEW...!!  He's always lived in a pen, rather than free ranging and our property is pretty rough with washes and lots of rocks, so we were glad to see him all in one piece the next morning.

Here he is visiting with Pepsi, actually Pepsi isn't Turbo's biggest problem, Justin the other mini seems to think he is responsible for putting the new guy in his place, no matter how big he is.  Turbo just ignores him......!!!  

Lynn took him out for some trail time and said he almost had to hold him back, which is a good thing if you are going to be racing with him.  As long as Turbo realizes there is a limit to human speed....LOL  Lynn is an endurance runner, so they should be a good match.

Visiting with Casper during a run

Of course as a burro pack racer he will have to wear a 33 pound pack.  So might as well start that training too.  

He doesn't look impressed with learning new skills

Leddy has to learn too, since he'll be running with Linda when they race - THANKS FOR ALL THE PICTURES LINDA

This week-end was our 1st race of the season at the asphalt track.  Did pretty good, I was leading the heat race and halfway thru the last lap, my car jumped out of gear.  Needless to say the guy behind me was thrilled.....!!!  LOL  I managed to finish 2nd, which gave me a good position to start the main.  

The main was a pretty good race, well once we contended with the guy that blew his motor and laid down a stream of oil ALL around the track.  I saw it and managed to "slippery" thru.  A couple of the guys weren't so lucky and got into the wall.  

When it was all said and done, at the finish line I needed a longer front fender by about 2 feet.......had to settle for 2nd.......!!  But that is my best finish on asphalt, so I really can't complain.

This was earlier in the race, with the guy that won.  We were trading positions back and forth for 5 or 6 laps, so it was a lot of fun.  Just wish he hadn't been in front when the checker flag dropped...!!  LOL
