    NM, I wish I had people to ride with also. Wish you lived close. I may have to try some of that No Thrush on a scar on my mare. I would love it to go away and grow hair.

    Ladona, Saddle smelled a lot better, actually had to get close to smell it. Big improvement. Sorry you did the splits! Must have hurt bad!

    Rick you crack me up. 2 at 10 bah ha ha ha!

    Sherry, why can't I see the pics??? Man, I am missing it! May have to restart computer and look again! Boo!

    Welcome Faye!! We need to update the name list. Anyone???

    NM, beautiful pics from your ride.

    Rick, thanks for fixing the photo problem with Sherry's barn. Beautifullllllllllllllll!

    Didn't ride today but hope to get in one tomorrow. Been trying to get some things done around the house. I got to drive a team of Percheron's last night. I did better than I thought I would. I planned to just go along for a ride and was asked if I wanted to try and I said oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooookkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk kkkkkkkkkkkkk..... I drove for about an hour out on the gravel roads out here. Was a nice evening drive. They belong to the vineyard and my farrier drives for them so he has been taking them out to get them in better shape. I have been asked multiple times by the vineyard owner why I don't learn how to drive them and well, I finally did it. I am mad now that my DH didn't get a pic, lol. I could share. I will post a pic of the team tho from a different date.







    Oh and that's my farrier in the suspenders. Add that to the photo's of our farriers, lol.

    Hope everyone has been having a good week. Have I told you all that I love this thread???

    Lori, you and Sherry can start banking the funding for this trip to gather horses now then I'll let you know when you have enough for me to head out..


    Ms.Terry, I'm glad you remembered the book and hope it helps add to your lessons. Can't wait to see pics of Tommy. Oh, and the barn pics belong to Farmchic, I was just loading them by HF so Alex and the others who couldn't view them by her pic loader. I would be hard pressed to head to the house with a barn like that. It is beautiful.

    NM71, I am sorry Rainn is sore again. I understand how you feel after the incident with Trusty and his leg being cut from working on trailer loading. I hope she heals quickly with little discomfort.

    I'm glad Jay is coming along so well. You didn't mention it, but I assume you are making him work once you get home from the rides? If he gets used to being allowed to go home fast then he will start getting barn sour and always try to run when pointed towards the house. Not a good thing to have to deal with. Hope to enjoy more pics of you two.

    Stan, I'm looking forward to seeing some pics from your treks this year. They sound fun. I'm looking forward to this 3 day ride my neighbor and their group go on every year. I am hoping to start working with Little Man to get him prepared for it in case Trusty isn't able to go. If her daughter is able to get Jems ready and she isn't rehomed yet then it may be her that goes just to work the edge off her.

    Alex, you are welcome and I'm glad you were able to see them. It is too pretty a barn not to enjoy seeing for us all.
    I hope you don't get into to much trouble on the field and as a pitcher in baseball then he could turn out to be a great QB in football.

    Melinda,, so very glad you explained about the pic not being of you.. I thought I had mistaken you for a woman all this time until I continue the read...

    Horses look great and I bet that was an amazing experience.. Does this mean you will be leading them more often? We will see more pics of the team with you in charge?

    Good afternoon everyone! Happy Friday!

    Up early again today and rode. . Humidity is down and the morning was cool enough for long sleeves!

    We rode nearly 2 hours again today. My boy is a great trail blazer. . His new feet worked great! Haha

    Roaddy, I'm a bit confused...when I mentioned jayJay jogging I simply meant as as we walked up the driveway from the farrier last night, I was leading him with the halter, I attempted to jog him a few steps, like a halter class. I was amazed he actually did it! Typically someone has to be behind him spurring him on. In addition, with my total hip, I can't jog more than a few paces. . Not even sure if I remember how to run anymore!

    When we ride we ride for quite sometime and often come home from different directions. I rarely jog or canter during any of our trip ( messes with my back big time) and definetly not close to home. Maybe my explanation was confusing last time.

    Rainn seemed fine today. Once let out, she galloped out to pasture. . She cracks me up!

    Moms DH gave me a sheepskin saddle cover. Wow!! What a comfy ride! My pelvis is twisted, so one bumm bone always gets a little more sore...this helped A LOT!!

    NVR, I say give the NT a try. You can buy it off amazon! I think I told you I use it on rainn's scratches. Nice percherons! My dad used to raise Belgiums. Gentle beasts.

    Welcome Faye!

    Yes I will. On the 20th I had been asked to ride along for a wine event they are having at the vineyard called Riesling Invasion. I guess it is a big deal. DH says he will get pics of me next time. It sure was harder than my farrier makes it look.

    We got out for a little ride between rains. The mud sucked the shoes off of the horses. Both of them lost one shoe. Now I am going to have to call the farrier out. All this rain sucks both figuratively and literally.

    We have been lucky this week. It rained hard early in the week, but it has only threatened heavy stuff while only dropping drizzle. I'm sure there are some places locally that got heavier than others.
