    Lori, that place looks like a lot of fun.

    This is the place I was suppose to be going this weekend for the Wounded Warrior Benefit ride.

    Take some time to look through the photo gallery...You might get really excited and decide to fly down to B'ham where I could pick you up and take you and Bre out there..lol There is another park just about 30 miles down the road that is equally amazing called Choccolocco ORV.

    Some serious adrenaline rushes going on when you realize you are 12 feet in the air bouncing up a 90 foot mountain rock.

    Honestly I would much Rather do a Trail horse ride than go in a jeep or other off road.

    I hear ya. Its been so long since I have been able to take my jeep on trails I would have to learn it all over again. I stopped working on building it when the horses came on the property.

    I need to finish it so I have that option for an outing as well as the horses.Raining or too cold then go in the jeep .lol

    I understand that completely and is why my jeep hasn't been finished. Lol I know it needs done, but I can't pull myself away from either riding or working with the horses.

    Any time spent with a horse is time well spent. They have a way of getting to you. So, over the next month time will be a little short, then you have to devide it between the family and time for yourself which will include taking your daughter to be with the horse. That's a great time for you, if you have little experience with the horse, to start.

    My first horse experience was as an 8 year old on a farm riding an old worn out clydesdale. When she died I never rode a horse again. Then at 59 or there about I came home one day with a huge two and a half year old clyde cross TB. Called her Savannah at two and a half she was 16.2h and on her way up. Age got the better of me and I had to trade down in size. Good luck with the learning to ride.

    You always have great looking horses to post pics of,Stan. I'm envious. All though beware the thrashing for the flip flops on the feet as the pic of the girls foot that was torn up from the horse stepping on it may find you. Lol
    How is everyone doing over there in the future?

    I agree with Rick Stanley!!! If I saw you in my pasture with that foot gear I may have to have you fetch a switch!

    As she got older she improved her front came up and she ballanced out. Shame I could not keep her she is reported to be a very forward and brave horse and now hunting.

    We have Rain but the temp has gone down some so the grass is slowing down but all will be well. Ill take out the sheep that will provide a little more sustinance for the horses and humans alike.

    I do make spelling mistakes from time to time

    Critter Sitter should get on a plain and go riding in a new country We don't get snow so its all year riding most of the time. However this year it seems to have fallen by the wayside a little. Horses need work and I'm not giving it to them So CS hope on over and tame Stella and Bugs.

    The horse Red I noticed it ws a little tucked up in the belly and lacking tone on its rear end. Did the owner not give it enough attention. At 14-2 just the right size for Roslyn however the shipping would make it a very expensive horse.

    Cheers all

    The jandles are a New Zealand icon.

    My horse would never stand on my foot, they love me.

    I frequently get threatened with a switch but have never recieved the spanking promised.

    I do own boots, just to lazey to put them on and you notice the position of my feet. Firmly attached to the end of my legs
