    Horse Camping

    Hillsdale HF June 2013_4 (2).jpg 11-40F4A251-1551723-1280-100.jpg

    First horse-camping experience was a success. I was able to get DH's Sportz truck tent up and furnished within 15 minutes - I was expecting a crisis with that, so was very pleased with how that worked out. This picture shows the tent right after it went up, before I got the campsite organized; and then I forgot to take a good picture of my little home away from home. BTW, the LQ horse trailer next door is NOT mine...

    Rode twice, with 2 groups of friends. I decided to come home last night instead of this AM because of heavy storms moving in last evening. (I didn't think camping in the rain, high winds and possible hail would contribute to a drama-free first horse-camping experience!)

    The only drama was that Windy rolled in her pen after the last ride yesterday and got her legs through the corral panels; she was able to pull them back out herself but in the struggle she ended up with some missing hide off her cannon bones and knees and fetlocks on 3 of the 4 legs. Nothing serious except one fetlock looked puffy afterwards. We hosed her down at the site, and then she calmly rode home wearing an improvised ice bag made out of a ziplock and dish towel (now a barn towel, LOL) and a roll of Vetwrap to hold it all together. (With Grace, I thought of you - I remembered Kes getting her wraps undone and panicking in the horse trailer...fingers were crossed that the old Vetwrap in my trailer was still "sticky enough"). Wrapped her in tendon wraps overnight with Sore-No-More and she's still a little puffy this AM but if I didn't know what I was looking for I wouldn't notice it. She seems not to be lame at all today.

    Used my new Camp Chef cookstove and it is super easy to put up and down, and heats in a flash. My new camp percolator makes great coffee and enough to share. I don't need that much power for camping but I wanted something I could use for canning this summer, outdoors. It will be perfect.

    I will try to post a picture of the trail ride but I'm not in it, LOL. The pics that I’ve seen of me so far, taken by others, show a fluffy white lady on a round tobiano horse. Not flattering at all so they’re not going on the ‘net! In the pics I took of my friends on the ride, I loved how the sun was casting speckled shadows through the trees, and the lovely contrast of the green hills and blue skies. It was a beautiful weekend.

    Koolio, your new barn is beautiful. You’ve done a great job with your design plan and choices you’ve made!

    TJ, enjoy your horse time!

    My farrier is truly young enough to be my son. He’s very skillful and also a very nice guy and we’ve become good friends over the years. I tell him that he needs to remember to be respectful of his elders and watch his mouth when he’s teasing me – he spends 99% of his time around me bent over with his butt within reach of my boot!

    Mine are flavored with chocolate mocha, not sure if there is any beaver butt in there or not! Am I crazy? Cause I really don't care, .

    And why am I the only one on the west coast?? That means I am always behind!

    Just came in for a break from painting/staining.

    I cared at first but then I was like ah what the heck, something is going to kill me, might as well be beaver butt.

    I can't afford the elephant dung coffee. That sounds pretty pitiful doesn't it? To poor to even buy something an elephant pooped out.

    I tell you what probably makes me weird is I can actually understand someone being so desperate for coffee that they use the beans from elephant dung!

    But those people who first decided to taste the anal secretions of a beaver...........I have no idea what to even say about that.

    Well we almost got rained out too, it was absolutely pouring on the way to the barn. Thankfully it stopped before we rode up to the riding club.
    As I figured Hunter would get excited with all the other ponies and people around. Poor Ashley, as soon as they walked into the warm up arena he started bucking and rearing, she stayed on good girl! She rode him around for a while and got some of the bugs out. In her first round they were just doing crosspoles and he bucked part way through. When they went to 2 foot she did pretty good except at the combination which he had never done before. Third round he did great except a pole down. So proud of my little brat. Will post link to last round soon.
    Here is my pony with his ribbon, they gave him one just because it was his first day.
