    I had to go kind of abruptly (my sister's Christmas gift was treating everyone to a movie, and it started at about 11:30ish), so I was cut a bit short. I also wanted to say that I'm probably going to go into animal sciences, so.... I just think that's neat.

    Anywho, I hope y'all have had a great holiday so far.

    Welcome, Jenny

    Nu, if you drive this far out, you just have to get to Teskey's! Take a list, as you will probably find most of what you want there. As Cyn says, KO is good for basic grooming supplies, wormer paste, etc. but as far as tack goes, you are lucky to find what you want if you are as picky as I am. I end up having them order for me a lot.

    Nu, Womack, and Jenny, I plan on doing a ride at Caprock Canyon last weekend in April with a group. We should meet up!
    I am in for a ride at Caprock! Just let us know.

    We've had Christmas success! Hubby and I earned our high fives this morning. Here's the one gift that's been in the works since August. I "think" she likes it.

    She was already plenty excited Christmas Eve despite wondering how she was going to attach that breast collar to her English saddle.

    Little did she know this was coming the next morning.

    I think she likes it, Mammak!

    Hope y'all had a lovely Holiday/Wednesday, and the rest of the week finishes smoothly. I'm back in the office today, then off until Jan 2, woohoo.

    Brief ride on Cash, still too muddy to do much. Driest spot I could find was a large, currently unused pasture, fairly far from everyone else. Definitely our most challenging ride to date, lol! Good reminder what a greenie CAN be like, since he's been remarkably calm thus far. Looking forward to having the next 6 days in a row where I can actually get to the barn during daylight hours!

    Christmas could've been better for me (I felt like I was going to go crazy...probably stress), but at least I got to spend time with my parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews.

    I hope I'll get some horse time sometime soon. I went to the barn with a friend last week. It was too muddy to ride, but I was happy to sit back and watch the horses.

    Wooohoooo! I finally got a "little" ride in today!!! Gosh it felt good. It is still sooooooo muddy and I actually had to use rubber boots to catch my ride, then saddle up under the dry overhang, switch into better boots, and then ride him cold backed out of the overhang and let him carry me through the mud. I was able to open the gate in the saddle so I never had to get in the mud once I was on him. Considering this was my greenie, cold backed, and it's been like 3 weeks, I was SUPER proud of him. He was perfect. We just rode in the pasture and even there, it was too soggy to do anything other than a slow stroll. Tried to trot him and I could tell he was sliding all over the place. BUT....I got me a fix and Rascal proved to me that he's able to tolerate different footing and still deal with gates in the saddle and such, even after a spell off. We also tacked up my daughter's hot pink ride today. I'll have to post another pic when I get the battery recharged on my camera. :)

    Sounds like an awesome ride! Sugar and I had a great one thru the stripped cotton firms she did not flinch at the modules of cotton.

    OK. Here's some pics of Katrina's "pretty boy" in pink. It was so darn bright today, it kind of washed out the pink. And the extra cinch I had was just a tad too long so I think a hot pink cinch is in order too. Something tells me I'm more serious about the color match up than my daughter. LOL! She loved the saddle though! I can't wait for it to dry up a little more so we can start playing a little harder.

    Excuse the muddy legs.

    Mammakatja...she needs a hot pink zebra saddle pad too! ;)

    I too often think that I worry more about Kitten's tack matching than she does. ;)
