    Thanks, KC! Here's a slightly more flattering photo. Henny loves his Uncle Gully. :)

    14? I was kinda hoping her butt-highness was due to her still growing hehe. She's really pretty!

    Unfortunately not. She's been just a pleasure horse but I'm working on her topline and retraining her, ugh but she's starting to get it. I want to use her for sorting, she really likes cows:).

    I think she'd be good for that! That big ol' butt will make it easy for her to pivot ;)

    I hope so. She will turn and move right out from under you, if you're not careful.

    Happy Thursday all ...

    I'm crawfishing on the trailride. We have a confidence issue after DH was bucked off. I'm spending what time I can with Gunner .. doing ground work.... with the ultimate goal of DH being safer on him. DH seems less anxious to come out and ride now .. and I certainly don't think going back to groundwork is going to hurt.

    I'm actually pretty confident on Gunner, and he doesn't give me any issues. But spending all this time with Gunner takes away from any time I have with Badger.. and he's greener than Gunner. Ugh.

    To top all that off, my dad's been less-than-compliant with his after surgery instructions and I spend alot of time dealing with that frustration. Next week DH and I are driving to FLA for 2 weeks .. at which time the boys will go over two weeks without a human touch .. ugh.

    I just don't know.

    Any words of wisdom??

    Boys will be boys, TG. They are just 2 after all. I would get ground work down SOLID and then venture into some light riding. I find that patience definitely helps. If Henny doesn't get something the first, we'll end on a good note and say, "Okay, we'll try this again tomorrow." Slow and steady wins the race :)

    So sorry tg. You've got alot going on. I'm sure you can get the boys manageable. Is he willing to go outside and help you with them? It may help his confidence as well, that is if he doesn't drive you nuts first, lol.

    I went up to Ebenezer this past weekend. We had a terrific time but it was hotter than a son of a gun Saturday afternoon. OMG we nearly smuffocated (my son absolutely has a cow when I say that - it is my word for smothering and suffocating). The trails were as they always are...craggy and with roots and holes but that always makes for an interesting ride.

    DRiggs I had wondered if you had made it up there and I might have to try out the KOA. I love to try new trails. I made my reservations at Ebenezer for February and March with the Rockin' R Riders. We had quiet a group this past weekend and we actually went out in two groups this time.

    Texasgal you might want to find a trainer locally that can put a little more finesse into the colts.
    I too have a 3 year old that is just broke. I ride him about 3 times a week but only for an hour.
    After my daughters health scare I had not ridden him in a couple of months. He did crow hop a couple of times. He has not for a while.
    Sounds to me like your colts need a lot of wet blankets and may not fully entrusted you husband with their safety.
    With arabians I think you learn this very early. They demand it from their owners and if they sense any hesitation the rodeo is on. LOL Shalom
