I have my wife downloading more pics this morning that she took with the camera and will download later.
Congrats on eating the same bowl of cereal every morning for the 35 some odd years..lol
We now have 7 on the property, but some are temporary as I have no need for a mini and a couple of the horses are going to be finding new homes at some point this year. I'm not in a huge hurry, but I don't need that many horses.
I'm glad to see you are still getting rain and praying the grass comes in strong well before the cold sets in.
I have to say that the metal shoes giving a solid "Ground" for the lightning to pass through to the earth ground is likely the cause of no chance to survive. Imagine wearing a pair of metal shoes buried 1" deep in the soil and then taking a hot 480 volt power cable and shoving it into your chest. The power is looking for the shortest route to ground and you are it. I won't get too grewesome, but have seen the results of lightning exit wounds that jumped a few inches out to get to ground. UGLY
Y'all look great together, oh and the horse looks good with you too. Lol
Thank you Roadyy. It was so fun to ride him for the first time.
Nice pics of the girl and her horse. A very nice saddle too, it looks great on that horse too. Posted via Mobile Device
I am grateful for all the input about the saddle and took it to heart. I will not be doing anything to it other than cleaning it. I guess I just figured a darker saddle would look better on a darker horse. I like the color tone of PalominoBuck's saddle on Jet's bay color. I get what y'all are saying about the contrast and after looking at it today I see what you mean and like that too. Thank you again.
I wanted to ride yesterday, but had the young man from church over and decided since he has worked so hard the last few trips that this would be a pleasure day for him. Saddled up Trusty and led Levi around on him a couple of laps around the yard while explaining how to use the reins. I even went so far as to have him hold to coffee cups full of water while in the seat and told him not to spill any of it. He finally got it about having soft hands with the reins.
The pic of him on Trusty is on the camera since it was dark by the time I thought about getting the camera out and my phone is not best for night time pics.
