Dancer had a long beautiful mane until just recently - I walked out of the house and saw her bare neck - have yet to figure out where her mane went - it wasn't cut, and I can't find any where that she might have rubbed it out...I think it got chewed on. Oh well - it will grow back and next year (hopefully) we'll be finished with the majority of the pasture and the horses won't be cooped up in the sacrifice lot.
Gem - you look great on your horse - and you aren't all that big. Now, I, on the other hand, am huge. I'm so glad that none of my riding buddies (most of which are NOT plus sized) are so encouraging. If they hadn't been, I'd never had had the nerve to get on Dancer at all, let alone ride on a trail ride! Dancer on trail ride.jpg
I can't wait until I can find a saddle that meets three basic criteria: 1) fits my hard to fit horse; 2) fits my fat backside and 3) I can afford on my measly budget. All because I rode on that trail one time, and have an obsessive desire to do it again and again and again!
