I just got off the phone with Ron and he's headed up a steep hill towards Hardin. He got some bad directions this morning and got turned aroun.  Yesterday, he had another good visit with Lee of Lee logger horses (see link).  He went into town on his bicycle (Ron's pickup) and got  100 lbs of oats  and some more fiberglass rods for his electric fence. He said he gave pony rides on ole Ed and he got lots of pictures.  I guess he's decided to stay at the fairgrounds in Hardin.  He's in good spirits and the weather is good!
