Run-In construction is moving along.
I hate building structures on ground that is not somewhat level.

Hurricane season is about at an end, this is good, the east coast has missed any activity for the most part.
Irene hurt me in 2011 to the tune of about 160K, God bless the insurance policy.
It rained indoors as hard as it rained outdoors.
There were so many holes in the roof I tarped the whole structure.

I hope some of us got in ride time this weekend, I have to catch up at home before it gets cold.
Instead of all the work I should have done during the summer, I went riding.
The riddle has been busted

The answer is a plane being the cabin. He died in a plane crash

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

Hi all!

Got some riding toime I today! Wanted to see how Jay was affected by his 'horsing around'. and found him to be.....just fine!! I feel very blessed in this situation. I can't believe what a good horse he was to stand there and wait to be freed.

He actually rode really well barefoot. We even practiced jogging from a stop, stopping on a dime, backing up....etc. he was really responsive. He still seems a bit more friendly after yesterday's episode...do you guys think he knows I helped him? I think so.

The sky was full of sun when I departed for the ride...it quickly turned overcast and windy. I wore my new chaps. Boy are they nice!!!. Here's a pic from our ride. Those look like snow clouds!!

Went home to clean...yep MR, I spent my summer riding too, and now our place is a wreck and my coauthor is coming to visit in two weeks. He's never been to our house, so I want it slick and span....I got it redd up....now I'll chip away at the dust bunnies....next weekend is shot, so I'll have to use my week nights.

The sun reappeared around 4:00, so I decided to pull rain out of the barn. So glad I did....while brushing her I noticed her utter is swollen big time!! When I got her last December she had mastitis. Now I think she has it again.... She let me touch up there, but yikes? I might as well call the vet for that AND her teeth....kill two birds. Ugh...$$$$$$

MR that is quite some damage, wow!!


TJ, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!. Wishing you the best one yet!! Hoping you get just what you ask for....a horse ride?

Ok, better hit the hay. Have a good week all.

I'm glad that he did well! He is a good boy. Looking at the road that you were on, you have a nice soft surface to ride on. If I had places that weren't rocky, I might try barefoot, but it just doesn't work here for me.

You're right Celeste, the dirt roads here are nice and soft right now....no new gravel. I get to ride many of the fields here too, MOST of the neighbors allow me.

Waiting to hear what the terrain is like for next weekend...hope not to rocky. Oh, and he seemed to realize that wo shoes, the blacktop wasn't as slick, so he moved out a bit more. Those shoes of his were so slippy....especially going down slopes.

Have a good day all, looks like our week weather wise is cooperating! Saddle time!!

Oh, Celeste, you also asked about putting shoes in for the trek...I just can't justify spending $50 to put them back on, when in two weeks I will pull them again...and....the weather isn't looking in our favor, so we may not even go..... But...hoping we will! he charged me ten bucks to come up and do an emergency pull off...which I appreciated!!!

Ladona, glad to hear your hubby was able to place. Does he rib you about the fact he did and you didn't? Sounds like something I would do all the while consoling her about not doing so well.

That looked like alot of fun and I know I would have enjoyed trying those obstacles.



MR, glad you had an insurance policy to cover the damage from '11. That did look nasty. I agree about building structures on unlevel ground. It drains me just thinking about it.



NikerMacker17, very happy to see that Jay was so calm during that whole ordeal. Just looking at the hole where his leg was you can tell it isn;t all that wallered out so he obviously did not struggle with it and make matters worse.
BTW, where are the posed shots of the chaps?


Terry,HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Hope you have an amazing day.



Stan, testy joke as I jokingly thought a plane, but didn't think it it fit the story then read down to find out that was indeed the answer. I hope things work out between the grass and the new riding club.


Ccg, when do we get pics of all these great supplies you keep teasing us about?


Here are a couple of pics I snapped with my phone real quick before night fall to show about half the people and cars that showed up for her birthday party. We had so much fun and everyone had a blast especially the b'day girl who made out like a bandit. A couple of outfits, we got her a tablet, her next oldest sister gave her a case for it, $60 cash and a $20 WalMart gift card.

Hi all well I moved Scotty on Saturday, went tog for a trail ride yesterday and there was something in the woods. Scotty was blowing hard and would NOT move forward so had to go the other way. Went with the lady taking over the barn and she was telling me about some family issues. I thought uh oh here we go (thats what happened to last barn owner). Got up this morning and had a text from a friend who is also moving back there and apparently they have now backed out of taking over the barn. Sheesh hope he can stay as there is a girl looking after a few horses there.

Recent text informed me there are 489 pics on the cd. Just listening to her as she went through a few of them sounds like they are really good. Asked her to pic a few from the different things and email me so I could share with yall. Hopefully that will happen before I leave work.
