Did some arena work this afternoon, then 3 miles out on trail. Was around 71 this afternoon. Lovely day. Took a pic of my boy before our ride. He looks less then impressed..

Showed my mare to a lovely young girl today!! I rode, then she rode, mare did great for both of us. It is hard to tell how they feel about her, though, but DH got a text that her Df will talk to us tomorrow, so we will see.

I worked my patootie off today. Sent DH to the dr. so he did not come down with bronchitis when the temperature drops down to 0, and we are iced in!! He still sounds horrible, but the dr. did not think he was terminal, gave him an antibiotic anyway....
I want to drive the sleigh if we get any snow, so he needs to be well, I mean, I don't want him to be sick.

Just talked to my friend, and darn it! Nova got to go riding today, while I was stuck at home with a cold on top of the wrist.

Any, that is a darling little shrine. So pretty.

Welcome MsLady glad to have you.

I got out with The Biscuit today at Tyrrell Park. It was windy and sunny when we started out and by the time the ride was over it was overcast and temps were dropping.

I FOUND MY PHONE!!! I lost it on October 26. We were going down Willow Bayou today and all of a sudden Biscuit startled and stopped dead in his tracks - at his feet was my phone! When I got home later I plugged it in and it started charging and lit up. I was able to turn it on! Wow....


We went out to the back and saw hogs when we came around a corner. We all brought lunch and ate lunch way in the back on Hildebrandt Bayou. I forgot a spoon so getting my chicken gumbo out of the Thermos was a bit of a challenge.

We went up a right a way we rarely (as in maybe 2 times) go up and it was muddy as all get out, had to cross ditches that were full of water. Came through the woods which were full of water. I don't know if the front of the woods will EVER dry up. Biscuit was a muddy mess when we got back. I think we rode around 8.5 to 9 miles. I can't find my dang Garmin. I am thinking my little granddaughter is the culpret - heck she may have hung it on the tree as an ornament!

Hoping to take a short ride tomorrow - depends on the weather.

Zexious there is a lot of beautiful places here ;)
greentree I don't know history of this one. I suppose no one buried there :)
There are a lot of little shrines here (in Poland) sometimes only cross, sometimes wooden or like this one on photo.

Gosh, Denise, you lost your Garmin (in the house)but found your old phone (in the woods)??? You should send that phone to those Sasquatch people, since the squatches probably used it while it was out there, lol!

I am kinda worried about the weather tomorrow. I put some of my precious square bales over the crawlspace accesses to insulate them a bit... I know nothing about how the pipes are insulated in this house, it is the only non-slab house I have ever lived in. When we had a house in Spring, it got down to 9, and stayed cold a few days. My bathroom on the north wall lost water, but the pipe did not break. My carpal tunnel is acting up from crossing my fingers!!!

Still waiting to hear on my horse....the girl texted DH and told him how much she LOVED the horse.

QOS--How in the world did you survive without your phone for that long?! :o

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Nancy, I am just glad the dang Satsquachs decided they didn't need it any more!!
Zexious - I had to go out and buy another one! I bought a Galaxy Note 3 that freaking cost a dang fortune. That was the 3rd phone I lost while riding

I bought a little "fanny pack" that runners use. It is very flat and just big enough for this phone. This is what I bought Large Pocket SPIbelt | Fitness & Travel Belt

My cousin bought the smaller one because her phone wasn't as big but she was having trouble getting it in and out yesterday - it was a little too snug. It is comfortable and doesn't flop around. I would recommend them for trail riders. It could hold my keys and money if I chose but not much more. I don't put that in there because I don't want to scratch the screen.

I'm glad someone else has a fanny pack

I FINALLY got my first 2014 ride in today! Was hoping to get out on the roads but they were still icey, so we rode around the track for an hour. Horses worked hard in the deep snow but Selena was SO happy to be out of the ring

Megan & Annie following in our path

Total Mileage = 2.59 (lol)

I've only got 2 rides in for 2014!!! Had a nice training session with Hero on january 1st, and had a nice little bareback ride today before some rain hit!!

Most likely won't get much riding in the next few days due to below freezing temps that are going to hit. We are suppose to be having the coldest weather we've had in 20 years the next few days!!

Here's a little pic of our short ride today.
