Wow Nancy - what a day. Hoping the filly improves but if not, I know putting her out of misery would be the best. That doesn't make it any easier.

It is not really a pinched nerve - well, it was compressed spinal cord and this is damage that may or may not heal. Hoping it does!!!

Dawn, thanks for the explanation of a Pioneer Ride. I would love to do that!

You are right though Dawn, it is more a "competition" for each of us with ourselves. I am hoping to challenge myself this year to more rides and longer rides and riding more by myself. That is my goal.

Denise, can they put you on a rack and stretch you?

My day got even better....I was cleaning out a stall to bed it deep for this silly mare, and I took my gloves off for some reason...then hit something, I do not know what, or when, but I had blood everywhere, coming from the back of my hand. So I put my gloves back on to finish watering and haying. Ifinally got the bleeding stopped and I am typing left handed with my right hand over my head, lol!

I am going to ride more this year if I have to rent a truck and trailer to haul to the trails more. Lol

Still haven't heard back from the realtor on the property across the street so will start looking else where for a place to keep the horses close by. I still need to get with the city to find out more details on the variance on the property to keep the horses, but waiting on the official notice to reach the owner so we know a deadline and can go from there. They are working with us by taking their sweet time about sending it out, so that is really nice of them. They wouldn't have bothered us had it not been for the one person complaining. The ordinance officer said he saw the horses out there the week we brought them home, but also saw how well we set the fencing up, keeping the poop picked up and the fact I was clearing more of the property to make more room so he was happy.

Goodness Nancy! Sounds like you had quite a day. Hope your hand is getting better.

Saturday Dare and me went for a 9 mile training ride and Sunday we went for a 17 mile training ride and had a blast! I am getting Dare ready for his 2nd 50 miler on 2/7. The weather was perfect both days for riding. The pictures are from Sunday after our 17 miles ride.

Nancy, I hope the hand heals quickly and the mare finds a way to heal as it seems she is doing.

I find cuts on my hands all the time now and usually have no clue when or where it happened. I take it as a way of life now. Lol

LP, it is good to see you again. Hope to see plenty of updates from your rides too. How is the weather just up the road?

LOL Nancy, I think that might feel good to be stretched!!!

Sorry about the hand - dang, I always have bruises all over that I couldn't tell you if my life depended on it how I got them. I am sure I banged myself with my saddle or something - I pulled on the computer cord the other day and my hand slipped and I swear to God I punched myself right in the kisser. Ahahahahaah what an idiot.

How is the little mare doing today?

Magnolia seems to be doing better today! Thanks y'all. I pulled the boots this morning, cleaned a bit of mud off her feet, and put them back on. I used my nippers as testers, and she shows a bit of toe soreness, but no heat or pulse. She may have just caught some rocks when I saw her running the other day. I turned her out with the boots on, and will duct tape some foam on her feet later. She was walking OK when I turned her out.

My hand is OK, too. I have a pretty big hematoma, like a bad phlebotomist got hold of me!! Otherwise, it is fine. I have a LOT of blood in the barn, though...I was bleeding a while before I noticed...maybe I need a babysitter, lol!!

Roadyy, I am so sorry that your dream place turns out to not be horse-friendly, that just stinks.

Leynaproof, it is so good to see you back. I still hope to see you at a ride this year.
