Back from the sunny beaches, I guess we had to come back sometime...a thick turtleneck sweater does not go well with a tan though. Got good pics of the trail ride throught the maui mountains, was sooo much fun. The guide asked how experienced we were (we were the only ones that morning for the ride) and when he heard we had a horse and had quite a bit of experience, he let us canter behind him up the trails and through little valleys! Have never done that before, I now see why treks and trail riding has such allure...its an incredible rush to gallop in the open not caring about your equitation, or what you look like. I even wore a cowboy hat, rode in a Western Saddle and neck reined! Aren't you all proud of me???? Pics to come...
I'm all caught up in the thread, now to see if I respond to the right people:
CW: hey lady! Hows the knee? Thought of you on my trail ride as the guide was telling us all about the horses there, and that he even had two that were so gentle anyone would have been safe to ride them. I thought how you would so love to gently walk that trail...if you ever go to Maui you have to go ride that trail.
Stan - yep, ladytrails is correct, I'm the one with the trailer cam. Best investment for trailering besides the BeKalm paste. I love it! I can clearly see whats going on back there while driving, and also attach it above my hitch as I'm backing to get it right on. Mines the Trailer Eyes model. Sorry about Kate, what a perfect example of being a mare
Corgi - congrats on the new car! How exciting! And so glad to hear Scuffy is doing better. I so know what you mean about colic, it is so scary. Our bout back in August still freaks me out to think about, and brings tears to my eyes remembering how miserable she was.
Critter - you mention using Ace to get Grace loaded...have you had success with that with Grace? I ask because it has no affect on Kes whatsoever. The BeKalm paste though sets in 2 hours and lasts I think another two, and does wonders. She doesnt even flinch at the trailer.
Montana - so good to hear from you again and that you've got internet again!
Anyone heard from Susan or Eagle or J in NY or Fahntasia? It's been awhile...
Awe Grace thank you for thinking of me
Way to go with riding western
