Hey everyone...not much to say. I just don't like when our thread ends up on the 2nd page. LOL

Rode Isabella again today...this time in my Aussie saddle. Uses a totally different set of leg muscles than my western saddle. Ouch.

One of the mares at the farm is about to have her foal. Pretty exciting! We may have a huge winter storm on Wednesday. She'll probably wait until then to have it.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Critter Sitter I may have missed something how did the trailer loading go in the end and did my method of tackling the horse work for you.

I know it is not very nice of me to make light of a horse problem and I do feel your anguish I had the same problem with Stella. And I still have Stella and Bugs but today sadness has fallen on this home. Kate has been sold and will be gone by the end of the week.

I will miss that horse a lot. Comforting thought for Roslyn, the buyer is a good owner and will eventually trek with us. A friend of ours has a older horse Roslyn can use and keep at home so she gets to keep her hand in so to speak.

To console myself I am very serious about buying a new horse trailer. Roslyn can not go on many treks for the coming year due to her taking on a job in the weekends. HOWEVER I can go to the treks on my own

My mustang was AWEFUL to load. Took the help of a friend's cowboy nephew. She is soooo easy to load now.
I practiced and took her for rides in the trailer a whole summer and fall.
So, instead of putting miles on my horse with me on her back, I put miles on my pickup, trailer, and horse by hauling her. Lol.
(put miles on riding her, too.)
