Hey Farmpony, you are in my neck of the woods! We have been to quite a few Potomac baseball games...back when they were called the Prince William Cannons. Good Times!

With Grace likes this.

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

A couple of photoes of todays cattle drive from the back and between Stella's ears. She who must be obeyed was in the lead and I in the rear with the straglers. Not meany cows only about 100 and a short distance 10 miles.
These are the only photos that came out the good shots of Stella doing her thing making believe she was a cow pony did not turn out. I had to use the cell phone camera it was to wet to use the the real thing. However Stella ended up with 4 straglers to look after so a good learning experience for her, and me, getting her to respond to the cows movement. She developed her own twist to herding, she got up close then let out an almighty loud neigh, the cows shot forward. I swear she got a buzz out of it. It rained and rained and rained but a good day out. And she is responding to voice commands much better now, but work to be done, I mean well, she is a red head.

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

There are actually a few cattle drives that you can go on. Either bring your own horse or they supply it. We are surrounded by ranches up at our property and they are owned by my friends family she goes up there all the time to round up the cows. I hope to do it with them one day, gotta let Hunter grow up a we tad more though.

Many thanks for that - makes much morse sense!
It is what we call a 'crumble' but with oats added.

STAN

Funny looking car! Hope you had fun.

Big Royal Procession today to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Unfortunately the weather is not so good. This is a thanksgiving for her reign.
Sadly Prince Phillip was taken to hospital for a bladder infection last night so he will not be present.

Many people have camped out on the streets to get a good viewing place for the parade.

I couldn't be there taking all the hustle and bustle! See more on the telly.

So- Stella did get to do some cattle driving!

Yes, the TV lets us see so many things we could only imagine otherwise-addictive little box!

Sometimes the secret is a good recipe, but there are many that won't share theirs.

Just early morning ramblings-can't sleep. Hate when that happens.

Cacowgirl: I have the early morning insomnia also...usually up by four.

With Grace: I have RA and I can't pull hard either....I think you are wise to get some professional help, money well spent.

Stan: I enjoyed the pictures you shared, the country is gorgeous there.

Fox: I went to the Macy's parade one year and never saw one float for the crowd.

CW: you are my kind of cowgirl, determined!

Went and picked up my tack from Jack's new owner and she was so happy.

She went on her first ever trail ride and Jack took good care of her.

I rode Sophie at my friend's INDOOR arena last night. I can't believe how easy

she is to train.

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!
