    I've seen a few videos of the fast paced trail competitions where they have the obstacles set up in a large building. It is amazing how they can set up all that stuff in such a small place. As much as I'd love you watch the events I would enjoy seeing the setup or better yet have a horse that was good enough to compete.

    Good luck Ladona. I know you will do well as long as you are singing any Buck Cherry songs during your ride. Lmbo


    NikerMacker17, glad you got to spend time the horses yesterday. I hope you have a great ride today and able to soak in the time to carry you through next week.


    Stan, how is the grass coming? Have you been able to work with Bugs any to get him back towards a trek worthy condition?



    I am working til lunch then stopping off to pick up Jessa's mom who was released on probation for 3 years with random drug testing before heading to the church to load up a few tables and chairs. We are expecting alot of people and no way do we have enough seating for half. Then its off to set up everything by 4.

    I was out in the pasture til 8 pm bush hogging and forgot to go get the trailer from my buddy to do the hay rides. I was also going to use it to haul the tables and chairs, but am hoping they haven't put the seats back in the church van yet so I can just swap vehicles to haul it in the it.

    Will try to get pictures of tonight uploaded quickly so I can share them with y'all.


    CS, if you see this I hope your leg feels better soon. Maybe I should start calling you kickstand.

    Tonight is my birthday bonfire. My birthday was on Thursday but not too many people are keen on a party on Thursday Night with work the next day! We still need to do a final clean up of the house and stack wood for the bonfire but that's about it. It's looking gloomy rainy and super windy. It may be a huddle around the wood burner night instead!

    Hoping to get a nice ride in tomorrow. I did get to sneak into the barn last night for some snuggles and the aroma of a clean barn and content horses! It's true, happiness does have a smell! I'll try to post some pics tomorrow.

    One of the neighbors had an impromptu bonfire get-together last night. So we had an early dinner-am loving that pressure cooker! And then a nice evening by the fire w/our good neighbors. DH saw me falling asleep, so got me in the truck & we headed home-I only had 1 beer & I cut it w/tomatoe juice, too! Such a light weight! LOL.

    No one else had plans to ride this W/E, so I'll be going out alone, I guess. It's hunting season here locally, so I'll need to wear some loud colors! And maybe add some bells.

    Waiting for pics of the party Rick-How did it go?

    Ladonna-good luck at the competitioin! Sounds like fun.

    Hope more of you get some horse time this W/E.

    The party starts at 4pm tonight.

    I'm sitting her watching the minutes creep by while I constantly make phone calls to make sure we have everything in order as well as line last minute details up. I like being paid to do personal business. Lol Yes, I feel a little guilty, but not enough to stop.

    Judged trail sounds like fun. Hope you have a great time Corgi. LOL on the picture with the flowery slinky!
    Everyone seem so busy with social gatherings, partys etc. Roadyy, I'm sure that party will be a success.
    Happy place: happy belated b-day. Keep warm by the fire!
    CCG: do you have a good slow cooker recipe for pulled pork? I'd like to make some.

    Snow and more snow in our forecast this week end. It's all white! I don't have my winter tires yet, but at least I'm on 4X4. I could have ridden this morning but felt too stressed by a hectic week in ER. I would have been a poor partner for my horse. I took a long walk with the dogs instead, we came back all wet from the snow.
    Tonight I'm traveling to Montreal for a cocktail-supper: 20 years gathering, class of 1993. Most of them I haven't seen in over 15 years. That should be interesting to see how we all aged... I'm a little puzzled by the dress code "casual-clean" they mentioned. I'm so away from social stuff, I have no clue what that means.

    Wow..all these bonfires and parties sound like fun.

    Happy belated birthday Happy Place!

    CaCowgirl...I'm a lightweight too. I can't even order a drink with dinner when I go out because I can't taste my food after one drink. LOL

    Rick...there are lots of Buckcherry songs that are appropriate for various situations. None seemed to fit today..thank goodness.

    We had a blast today! It was only 30 degrees when we loaded up the horses but it warmed up quickly. I was a little worried (what? Me worry about something????) because I had only trailered Isabella one other time and it was over a year ago. She started pawing immediately but stopped as soon as the last horse was loaded and then she calmed down. Being a polo pony, she has a lot of trailer miles under her belt so maybe she was just excited.

    Having hubby with me was fun! He and Scuffy won 5th place in novice horse. It was his horse's first time ever doing a judged trail ride. Isabella and I didn't place. It was only our second time and she refused to cross the bridge. Not really a surprise since we battle over this at the barn every single time we ride.
    No bridges in polo! We also got a zero score at one obstacle that I just wouldn't make her do. It was a very high step up onto a berm. We just passed on it because I knew it was beyond her ability. Even the judge admitted he thought it was a little too high for some horses.

    I am going to post some pics but have to do one at a time since I am on my ipad. This first one is of us getting ready to head out.

    This one is at the water obstacle. She didn't want to go in at first but afterwards she seemed to really enjoy walking around in it.

    This was a really hard one. We had to lift a pole that was resting on a stump and walk a 360 degree circle while keeping one end on the stump. We almost made it all around. She was very calm the whole time but I couldn't keep the end on the stump. Totally rider error.
