This is the final leg home. Jay really put full steam ahead here! the boy can move when he wants....but I wonder too if the rocks bother him. This dirt road isn't pebbly...the others I ride on are, and he walks tippy toed a lot....thinking it's the footing!!

We had fun!

Ummm....this might be a stupid question, but I love this thread but it drives me crazy that it posts backwards. Why does this thread post from oldest to newest? Or am I just being an old cranky women?

Check your settings to make sure you don't have it set for oldest first.

I decided to work on Jems' feet again last night and Misty and EJ came out to help. Everything went well til the last foot on the back when Jems decided to pull away and stomp toe down. If I hadn't tucked my toes under my foot at the last second, I would have lost my big toe and next toe from the beginning of the nail. I felt her weight as she rolled it down atop my foot, but was able to get it off before she bore all weight on that foot.
I was hoping to do some light riding this weekend, but they are calling for 70% rain so that may be a wash.

Nicker, glad you are having such wonderful rides with Jay. I am so jealous, but also know that here in another month I'll be able to start riding more consistently and have pics to post up while y'all are all huddle around a fire or heater.

I don't know if I posted it here or just at the other place, but Misty and EJ are moving back to Ms. Tomorrow. Her husband worked out a deal with his grandparents for them to stay there and she'll have access to a vehicle. I'll miss them, but not her dog. It really bothers me when people refuse to see they need more training than sit or fetch.

I know Roaddy, I''m feeling the pinch for riding time, so I am taking advantage of the GREAT weather we are having. I'll have plenty of time in the winter to sit and do 'work' or clean house! Right now is the time to ride and be outside!!

It' to begin raining here tonight and into Saturday. Which does give me time to do what 'needs to be done'. Sunday is predicted to be 65 and SUNNY!!!!

Happy Friday all! Get out there and ride!!

I have a really stupid question to ask. Someone mentioned in passing that ranchers and breeders do not bother to brand grade horses, so therefor my Appy gelding whom is branded is definitely registered. I purchased him 13 years ago from a horsebroker that purchased all his horses from local auction houses and the local reservations. I tried tracing the brand once and got nowhere and figured it did not matter anyhow. I am just curious at this point, it really does not matter one way or the other to me. He is 23 yrs old and in is forever home with me.
It just seemed logical to me that all a ranchers horses were important and all would be branded regardless of grade.

CCG: have a safe trip, can't wait to hear about the new horse and donkey.
NM71, nice ride pictures. The last one: my mare would love to canter that straight smooth road!
CountryWoman, how is your hand healing?

Gorgeous and warm Friday, we are blessed. I rode this morning: my mare was perfect, laid back and in tune with me.
Took this picture. Last fall, we encountered a huge moose at that very same spot.

Wow Eole that looks beautiful!. You guys all have such nice places to ride. I did at my old barn but now I have to trailer out for tides. We do have some trails down the road but they are pretty small and narrow. Tomorrow I am hoping to go to the poker ride for a local horse rescue. I hope the rain stays away.

I think for wild animals a moose is one that Scotty hasn't seen yet being the country boy that he is. Show him a manhole cover and he will run for the hills. Silly boy.

They can be silly indeed: my horse didn't mind the moose, but spooked earlier at white wild flowers...

Hunter, is the sale a done deal?

Eole! Your colors are going to be amazing this fall! The tips of some of our leaves are starting to turn. We don't usually see brilliant colors until October. Also, I can't imagine meeting a moose on the trail!!! Yikes!!

Can you say LONG, LONG Friday????? Dear lord....this was the longest day of my life!! I'm on glass #2 of wine, so I can giggle....but at 3:00 I thought I was going to die of exhaustion!!!

We started our day with pictures....superintendent stopped in to do a walk thru....and we ended the day with a spirit assembly!.

Oh....then I trucked out of there to get an oil change at the Honda dealer....they are now telling me my one brake is stuck and has ruined my roter...a mere $400 to fix. what???? Ugh!

Our neighbor is a mechanic, so I will have him check it out....not what I wanted to hear. My car is an '09 and 40,000 miles...really?

A positive....While I wasout and in the next town which has decent restaurants, I stopped at Hot Head Burritos for our dinner!!. The burritos are the size of your head! Can't wait to dig in!!!

Have a good night all!

I can't imagine what my horse would think of a moose. She would probably die on the spot. I went for a ride today and she got upset over a log in the road.
