Welcome zoregon.
Not much happening here to write about. We had a renter move out and leave a bunch of junk behind. We've been burning what we can and will have to haul the rest to the dump next week.
I hope to ride Jas tomorrow. Hope the weather and my back can cooperate.

No riding in my neck of the woods Both Stella and Bugs are loading into the trailer so that is a problem I am getting sorted. Todays training session was to close the barrier so Bugs could not back out, that upset him. I ended up in the front with him, calming him down the little sook. He tried to raise his front of the deck but did not have enough room also tried to kick out also not enough room. He ended up stomping his hoof like a spoilt child. That got him a growling, and I sang him a country song as aditional punshment. That quitened him down, I guess he figered the only way to stop me singing was to lower his head and stop stomping his hoof.

The plan for the week is to keep loading and locking him in untill he gets the idea its not a place to be frightened of, and if I have enough energy an evening ride.

Pony gal, the weather and your back have you hurt yourself.

Welcome to the two new over 40 or just reaching 40 can't rightly remember but one was 43 I believe, and what to post. Any thing will do.
Most are aware of my horse Stella the problems I have had and the replacement Bugs, but now, after working with them both I'm not sure if I can move Stella on. She still gives me the cold shoulder but then when she just looks at me and answers my verbal commands it makes one soften. What I need is someone I know to take her so I know she will be looked after. Must be getting soft in my old age.

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

Yea Stan, I hurt my back a couple of times on the horses. I have herniated and bulging discs, compression fractures (one I had surgery on, the other is labeled as chronic) and spinal stenosis in my L4 and L5. I always have back pain, some days are worse than other. I wear a back brace when I ride and it helps alot.

Good morning everyone
Hope you all had a good New Years
We had my mother in law over
That went well since she does not really like me
She thinks Marc should be single and cater to her only
She has a mental disability and she is deaf and she understands very little

Marc is still not working so riding is not happening

If I were where you are Stan I would help you out with Stella

Happy Sunday!

Pony gal, I have compression fractures in my upper back, between my shoulder blades. The injury happened back in 2009 and I still have pain from it. So, I completely understand what you are talking about.

CW- glad your mother in law didn't ruin your New Years. Sorry you aren't able to ride. Hang in there...it will happen.

Stan, glad Bugs is progressing with the trailer training! I also think you should definitely keep Stella for a while longer!

Isabella and I hit yet another milestone today. I am so happy. It rained last night so hitting the trails today was not an option due to unsafe footing but we went out to the farm anyway so we could spend some time with our horses.

When I got there, Isabella was enjoying herself in the sun. She knew I was there but was way too comfy on the ground. In the past, she would get up as soon as I approach her. Today, she allowed me to approach her, crouch down, and love on her. It was such a cool feeling to know that she trusts me that much. When I was done loving on her and walked away, she got up and followed me.

I can't tell you how much I love this horse.

She was a little "off" today. I think she may have tweaked a foot or leg in the mud, so we didn't do much work. I didn't want to cause her any pain. Hopefully, she is spending the rest of the day resting in the sun!

Looking forward to the Redskins/Seahawks game in a couple of hours. Go 'Skins!

Don't know why my pic is sideways! Sorry!

Corgi
My prediction: the Seahawks are going to kick butt. And how about those Ducks?
