Will was on Patchy who often stopped to eat. Ashley's horse, Pearl, ...

Day 3: Treasure Hunting!

... who had helped Esen.
After we were done, they took our findings to identify them. I appreciated that they sorted each type of stone into different small ziplocks and labelled them. Much more fun for us.
