Dancer spooked at a killer crow ambush on Sunday and dumped me. No injuries, just one sore spot so it must be a good luck sign for the show. She's such a funny old girl - looked at me like "hey, why are you down there?" afterwards. As if she didn't know.
At least it was crow's, they have presence. Stella used to spook at sparrows and crickets. How is the bruse, funny how we don't bounce as well any more.

It was a very wet morning again. Heavy down pours but did brighten this evening. Honestly it is really beginning to get everyone down.

Not often I get low but this is really a little to much. Poor people who have had their homes flooded, I have only seen the results of this once and it ain't pretty.

I have just made about 20lb of strawberry jam. I have some red currants straining to make my red currant and mint jelly. Raspberries are in the freezer need a few more to have a decent brew. The worse thing about making jams it removing the labels from the jars. I swear some companies use supper glue.

Off to put the lids on the jars now it has cooled, then to bed.

I'm glad to see this, I rarely visit it though.

Horses make me a better person.

Welcome to all the new folks!

Stan: you had me laughing my a$$ off, I could picture stella giving whoever was holding her leg the stink eye once you had administered the pain/treatment.

Hunter: His ear looks much better, hope it continues to improve, that was a nasty cut!

Texasgal: grats on your new babies! They are handsome boys!

I know I know I promised pics, I swear I will have them up tomorrow. I have been bonding with my girl, and trying to figure out a name for her. She is a wee bit of a she devil, and is quite mareish around the boys. Has the patience of a saint but when she has had enough, its ENOUGH...lol The name Diva came to mind, but it sounded a bit too common since she is quite pretty. Soooo I found the name Sapphira. It.suits.her. I am totally in love with her. Here is the pic of her that made me go "oooooh sooo pretty, I want!" I will have new pics of her by tomorrow evening.

Hi all!

Well, the bumps haven't disappeared from Kes's back, but they are itchy, not painful as I thought. We put a saddle pad over it when we used the surcingle today, and after they didnt seem so bad? Weird. I also got to try my hand at long lining today, it's actually harder than it looks! My horse sitter, who is the apprentice at my barn, is a fabulous horsewoman and is teaching me to long line. Kes does amazingly in the lines. Will post a pic soon.

Tomorrow we meet and ride for our farrier, so he can assess and start building Kes's show shoes, which will be what we actually will show in next month. Spendy little suckers, but can't wait to see how she moves after they are finished and put on next week. We will pull them after we show, of course...unless the show gods smile down on us and we some how place well and qualify for Grand Nationals in OKC. :) A girl can dream, right?

Texas - congrats to you and your hubby, the new horses are so very pretty, I bet he was thrilled with his new boy!

CW - HOORAY for the new barn and lessons! You are going to LOVE the lessons, and how you can see improvement week after week.

Fox - I can so sympathize with the greys and the depression that goes along with it. Here in Washington we have almost the same weather as the UK, somehow we are in a string of nice weather, but the rains will be back soon. We don't tan here, we mold.

Yes she's 100% TB, she does look morganish with that pretty head, and I have always loved morgan horses. She's 3 yrs old, 16HH and still growing, i'll have better pics tomorrow promise! (That's one of the pics I got from the previous owner, please excuse the shmutz lol!)

Poor Kes, hope her back gets better soon

Yep, it's that elegant head that made me think Morgan cross. Can't wait to see more pics, TB's are my second love. Those lean athletic builds are so elegant.
