Back in the saddle - soon, I hope

Hey there! I live up in Connecticut USA where the leaves are just starting to change colors.

I'm just getting my strength back after a long illness, but I'm really not ready to ride yet because I need to replace the convalescent flab with muscle. Unfortunately, there's a lot of that flab.

A local barn is letting me groom their lead-line ponies one night a week just to get my "barn legs" back. (I love coming home smelling of horse. )

In the meantime, I'm working on a horse novel that I started while I was sick, as well as the horses&culture blog that you see below in my signature.

Oh yeah -- and the very pretty kitty who serves as my avatar is our female cat Amber.

Welcome to the forum I'm not too far from you -- I'm in MA right on the NH border. Gotta love the changing leaves, especially out on the trails!

Great to see some neigh-bors. State neighbors, actually. Thanks, amigo82 and Gingerrrrr.

I'd ask if you guys were going to Equine Affaire - except I can't go this year.

And, yes, 3neighs. Horse smell IS the best. Especially clean horse smell. Add in that leather smell and I'm hooked.
