Best Laid Plans

Don't you hate when life interfers with riding your horse?!? I was ready to get out on the trail again and work with my mare on her barn sour issues, and 15 minutes before I get off work, the nurse at the high school calls and says my daughter has a fever come get her.

Well okay. I can set her up at home and then go off and ride. I pick my daughter up and she says she needs to get back to the high school when practice starts because she can't miss practice. Even if she just sits there, they are learning a new routine and it is too close to competition to miss a practice.

The next time I can get in the saddle is Friday and it will be raining. It is supposed to rain until next week. So the arena will be washed out too. Rats, rats, rats.

Anyone else have their plans fall apart?

lol! Constantly here!

I was going to ride Monday, since I was off, the kids were @ school & hubby started work again! (whoo hoo! - day to myself) However, it poured down rain all day & was chilly - well for here in Florida, anyways! Planned to ride Tuesday....hubby was home as his semi went into the shop & 1 son was home sick. Plus a neighbor had a rogue cow in her yard we were trying to get caught up, & the the other neighbor's bull got out so my afternoon was spent there!

I'm hoping to get on a horse this weekend....but I'm on call for work & there looks to be a good possibility of me being called in.

I wish you luck..and here's hoping we both get on a horse soon!

We're just he opposite riding gets in the way of life sometimes. Funny we were discussing that today. I have so many little things that need to be done around the ol farm house that can only be done during nice weather. They all sit undone because during nice weather we are in the saddle

I don't blame you. I would rather be in the saddle than doing work around the house. Especially when the sun is shinning. Going to attempt to get in the saddle today. Things are still real mushy around here. And we are getting another storm this weekend. I have a four day weekend and it will probably be raining.
