Mamma, I don't know Gebo's.! Guess I need to google! lol

I'm with you on trying clothes on in the store Out! Makes my mom so mad when I won't. lol

Nice rain coming down! Thunder and lightening.

Just talked to one of my friends who went on the ride. Yesterday, her dad and his horse fell down the mountain in a ravine, they're ok. She split her toenail up into the quick. Had a lot of rain thru the night. Most of the trails on the hills and such are clay, slick. They've packed up and headed home! Glad I didn't make the effort to go ahead and go, just to turn around and come back. She lives maybe an hour away from there, where I'm 3 hrs.

Nuisance everything happens for a reason. Now call your friends that backed out and thank them. LOL
If this is an annual event let me know I have no idea what a poker run is but hey if it involves horses Im in.
I rode Star on a ride with 5 other horses the most I ever have that are not mine. He was spirited but ok even with a mare in heat.
A couple of horses in a pasture we rode by did wake him up when they galloped by numerous times. Then he had to let them know he was all boy. prancing tossing his head pawing the ground and flagging his tail.

DB so good to hear from you! Glad that you are out riding :) it's raining on and off here. One of the other horses rolled in mud so bad, I sent pics to his owner saying I didn't know she had gotten a new horse lol

Wooohoooo! My rye seed got a shower. I just hope it wasn't too much of a good thing. It came down really hard for about 5-10 minutes and it was blowing like crazy. Hopefully it didn't all get washed away. I rolled it so maybe that helped. It's nice to be stuck inside for a day. I did get a couple of rides in yesterday so it's all good. :)

Loving the cool temps and RAIN!
I did get a ride in today. It was in a small indoor arena but a good workout none the less!

For a poker run, you ride the trails, and they have a specified number of stops. At each stop, you dscare card. The one with the best hand at the end wins. Sometimes they. Have awards for the worse hand also.

I am so jealous sounds like everyone is getting rain. We literally got rain 1 mile down the road but nothing at our house. Crazy how that works. I survived shopping only found a couple of shirts and did get new underwear and bras. We laughed as we shopped last night amazing how things come back around. I refuse to wear the stuff I wore as a teen in the 80s and I saw tons of that last night. I have decided to just go online and get some shirts and blouses from old navy. I always know what fits and they have as my sister says more plain stuff there. Today was my Saturday to work so I did not ride but at least walked the dog. Did just now come in from feeding Sugar an apple. Hubby cooking steaks tonight. Hubby cleaned house and did the wood and tile floors so now my Sunday can be spent riding. I was amused to see how many of us horsewomen really hate to shop. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I really am enjoying being part of this group. Next weekend we are headed to Ruidoso NM for the guys to ride dirt bikes. I do not get to take my horse but am probably going to rent a trail horse and ride in the forest. Kind of silly I know but never hurts to ride other horses. I had great luck last time so hopefully I will this time too.

Well, we found the perfect dress and now we need to find shoes. Shoes is an area I don't mind when it comes to shopping but it is probably the only area. Got sprinkled on a little at the mall in the Woodlands, but as we were coming back down Hwy 6 towards Navasota, the sky turned dark and lightening flashed everywhere. As soon as we were near home, the sky fell and visibility was probably 10 feet all the way home and we couldn't see our exit until it was right in front of us. One of the reasons why I love driving with 6 wheels especially when it happens while hauling.

Anyway, there must have been a downpour here all day. My pond is FULL!! There has been enough drainage upstream and all around to raise it a good 4 feet. AMAZING. My swimming pool is running over, too. The thunder and lightening is all around and loud and flashing like a disco. I love storms!

We got a nice downpour today. I was hoping for some rain too because Henny has some sole that needs exfoliated. Now I don't have to get my hoof knife out Just kidding, I still gotta trim his bars LOL. That boy grows foot faster than any horse I've ever known. I have to keep reminding myself that's a good thing!
