TG I hope you don't have too much black and blue and stiff/soreness. The ground DOES hurt. It just sort of comes up and smacks you out of no where when you least expect it. Maybe you are right - a month with someone else who can ride him out when he does that will do him good.

Ouch TG, that's no good! When DH is breaking/training, he teaches them to flex so that if he gets even the slightest indication they might buck, he can flex their head in and it's impossible to buck. Bucking is just so rude lol!

Oh TG, I hope you feel better soon! What is it lately? My guy, your four year old, maybe the spring bug is going around. I'm still taking ibuprofen from landing on my head last week. I hope you heal more quickly!

Kctop thanks for the invitation. I could not make it to the vet clinic. We had some damage at the farm near Paris from the winds that blew through. A few cow needed to be doctored and that $#$% would not cooperate.
Teasgal where do you live I will come ride that bucking fool for you.
If I get in the saddle they have to buck pretty hard to throw me.
Sorry to hear about the fireman and the 11 yo.
We need not ask why these things happen. We need to accept the fact that they do and find peace within ourselves.
Remember living may at times be painful but its rewards are great if we look for happiness. Shalom

Dba, sorry to hear y'all had damage on the farm, hope everything is ok. Our after church gathering has begun and got some meat on the grill, baked beans, potato salad, chips, dips, cookies, etc..

Good afternoon. Had a nice trail ride. We decided not to ride again today and came home early. The ride is all on public streets, no my kind of trail ride. Most of the places don't have a bar ditch to ride in, our horses are barefoot, so they were sore. I won't do that ride again, he has them twice a year. But we had fun, had good company. I almost got thrown. Was riding my friends horse Joe, rescue, this was his 4th ride since she got him. 3 by me, 1 by her! Lol anyway, he want to be in front. If he sees a street, he wants to run. So the whole 15 miles there and 15 miles back I was fighting him to get him to slow down. Only way he would was if I put his nose in the back of one of the wagons. He would try to go around but I wouldn't let him. Anyway, at one point going over a little hill, a wind gust blew my hat off. I turnedhim around, tried to get him to stand still so I could get down and get my hat. He danced in circles, was a complete jerk. He finally reared straight up, and kicked out as he was coming down. I lost a stirrup, because I wasn't ready for it, but didn't hit the ground! One of the teenage boys riding, stopped and picked up my hat for me. Thank goodness. If I got off of him, I would have a hell of a time getting back on. He won't stand still while mounting. I've got where I flex him, and turn his nose to my knee as I'm getting on, but he was so wound up, no telling what would have happened.
But, I'm home, last load laundry in the washer, all the camping stuff washed and put up. Horses fed. I'm just chillaxin'!
Here's my pics if you want to look. I was with my friend, Tammy and her DH, Matthew.

I love the mules! I have a soft spot for the long ears. Looks like a beautiful day!

Nothing super exciting here this weekend - just pulling weeds. The weeds are as tall or taller than my plants and the rye grass snuck in there (is snuck a word?) and it is seeding right now so everything is getting covered with rye seed - loads of fun next spring with that.

I have a goober sort of question: Does anyone know anything about blogging? What is the purpose? Do you have to only talk about one subject or can you talk about everything? I've always wanted to blog just to get the random stuff out of my head so I can think straight. Can you do it with an alias and not your real name to keep your personal life private? I don't even use facebook - I wonder how time consuming blogging would be? Like an hour a week more or less?

Was a quiet weekend for me. Good ride on my mare yesterday. This foal lost his mama Thursday. She had to be put down because her cancer spread, but didnt she do a good job with this baby! He is almost 4 months. Belongs to my BO.
