Biasini Speaks: Hawgs! Gators! The Florida Jungle!

Hello again Dear Humans. Previously I told you about our encounter with Hawgs! Now I have found out there are other dangerous creatures. Ma Leueen and I went out with Coach Lou on Eli, and Assistant Ene on Gonzo. As we were walking down the road to the Trail, Gonzo tells me something.

“Hey Beebs! You know what we saw yesterday when we were out on the trail? A GATOR! He was about six feet long! No kidding.”

Well that gave me a pause. I know that “gators” are large reptiles with huge, and I mean huge mouths with gigantic sharp teeth. And they can kill a horse if they are big. How do I know this? Ancestor memories. That stuff is in my ancestor memory file: “How to Survive in Florida 101”! Those gators will grab a leg and then pull you down into the water and drown you. Then they put you into a place where you will be covered up with water and they leave you to rot until you are easier to chew. I am not kidding. So what did I learn in “Survive 101”. Those gators can move faster than a horse for a short distance but they can’t outrun us over a longer distance. So I knew if we were going to go by the wetland trail I was going to keep my eyes open and all my senses on high alert.

Then I heard Ma Leueen ask if we were going on the wetlands trail and Coach Lou said no. What a relief! So we went on another trail where there were no gators and no hawgs. I asked Ma Leueen to take a video. I know that there are people in different places who read my blob posts and maybe they would like to see the Florida jungle in winter. Gonzo is the leader and Eli follows. I bring up the rear. I hope you will enjoy the video.

Till next time Dear Humans!

  2. Wonderful post, Biasini!
    I enjoyed reading about the ride from your perspective.
    It does pay to be careful, but I’m sure Anne has everything under control, and won’t lead you down the wrong path. πŸ˜‰
    Happy trails!

  3. The video looks so enjoyable as I can’t guess this ride includes these much danger. Horse rides as life Only the rider knows the difficulty not the viewers. You and Ma are so courage and inspiring as you enjoy your ride even after knowing the difficulties.

  5. My goodness…be careful with the gators The danger in our forests are bears. Our humans prefer that we dogs do not bring them back to the trail. We enjoyed your video

      Bears! Well Gavin and Wyatt I know about bears. There are sometimes bears in the forest at home . I can smell them and I refuse to go down the trails where I can smell them. I don’t think I can smell gators though. But I did smell the hawgs! Glad you enjoyed the video. 🐴

    Oh my goodness, Biasini! I am so glad you did not see a gator on the trail – that would be so scary! Looks like it was a beautiful time on the trail. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Lord. that’s worrying. Although I have read that its quite chilly in Florida at the moment so perhaps they wont be fast moving, even if you do see one!??

      Emma Human it has been cold the past couple of days but last week when Gonzo saw the gator it was not so cold. But I will be careful anyway. Thank you for your comment. 🐴

  10. It wouldn’t let me see the video, but I have seen 1,000’s of gators over the years. I run a mile too.

      Hello Susie Human. Ma Leueen has fixed the error with the video now. She tells me you are also in Florida to that is why you have seen lots of gators. 🐴

    I’m so glad you didn’t have to go on the trail where there may be Gators! Phew, that would be scary. I love that you all get to go out on the trails being that’s what I do here in California! I bet it’s great for the mind to get out of arena and go for a nice trail ride! ❀️❀️❀️

        No Gators here, but down in the riverbed there’s wild hawgs, bobcats, mountain lions and coyotes! They are not dense in population, but they are around…. I stay away from the riverbed, it’s a long ride and the sand too deep for my horses legs. I see coyotes on the streets (usually at night, but have seen them during the day sometimes) as they go after neighborhood chickens and Guinea hens. Wildlife abounds! πŸ˜ƒ

          Mountain Lions!! That sounds scary Diana Human! We have coyotes at home at well but we horses are not too bothered by them. But we do NOT have hawgs or mountain lions. I’m glad you do not go to the riverbed. Stay safe!🐴
