What a Witch!!
 
I wanted to do a 20 minute ride this morning before it got too hot. Well, Gandy had other things in mind. She's really been in heat, and talk about being a witch. Oh my! I actually had to get off of her and walk her a bit before I ripped her head off! So she settled and I climbed back on, not an easy feat for this old gal... She still would NOT walk. So I pushed her into a hard trot and just made her trot trot trot. She finally about died and at the end we had a nice slow jog again. My 20 minute ride lasted an hour.

Yes, I know I am not dressed correctly for riding... it's either this, or no ride at all, I just can't stand jeans when it's this hot outside.

Getting on... Gah! It's hard to do!! Not as flexible as I once was...

Yes, I am definitely a mare person. I've dealt with a lot of geldings through the years as I boarded horses for many many years. Give me a mare any day. The are so much CLEANER in the stall!

O yes they are, soooo much nicer.

LOL. Silly girl. I prefer geldings for just that reason. I never have to worry if one of mine has PMS or not. LOL.

She is still stunning though. Good job sticking with it even in the miserable heat. :D

7Ponies, first let me take my hat off to you for being able to mount from the ground! I gave up a while ago, should see me on the trail, searching for a ditch, rock or stump! :lol:

And don't you love when you make a plan and "they" have their own agendas! But I have to agree, love my mare too. Even more now because she isn't a typical mare. She is always even mooded. Maybe she has a higher amount of testosterone then estrogen!? :? And yes, compared to Walka, T is always clean. Very rarely rolls in the mud and keeps to a corner in the stall. Love mares! :-)

:lol: That's funny because it is the complete opposite for our gelding and mare. The gelding has specific corners he "goes" in, while our mare just goes wherever she's standing :-P
