This is a sketch from Dawn's journal, describing a hair-raising ride. She'd walked from the cabin to bring the horses in, when a thunderstorm blew up -- Wyoming's weather can change quickly. Dawn managed to mount her mare Candy before the horses took off at a gallop, racing toward the cabin. Without saddle or bridle, Dawn managed to stay on her horse as she raced up the two-track, down the steep draw, across the creek and up the other side. Dawn was thrilled and scared at the same time! Being on a horse in a lightning storm is very dangerous. Candy galloped so fast toward the corral that Dawn feared she was going to jump it, so Dawn yelled, "WHOA!" forgetting that Candy had been trained for reining competitions, in which the horse, at a sharp "Whoa!" slams on its brakes to a sliding stop. That would've thrown Dawn off over the horse's head, but luckily Candy seemed to know better and slowed to a gentle halt. Whew! What a ride!
