    Well, this is a bummer. Everyone else running ahead, its the 7th already and I have logged ***making a "0" w thumb and forefinger"*****. Hmph. It snowed here, has had wind storms, and tomorrow rain. Pooh bah. I'll never get started! I don't have a smart phone - but this thread made me look, I can activate "navigator" for a price..although I am not sure it will track miles traveled, no matter...I am too cheap for that. :) I go by things like "up to" or "down to" or "around by". Its no wonder I can operate a cell phone and don't use smoke signals w my method of "logging". I might chance taking my garmin next time...just for the "novelty" of it. But, oh gees..if I lost that I may never be able to drive again (I get lost driving very easily).

    I want to say she said the sire was one of Ms. Jean's studs that she shipped back to Egypt. His name was Nykeb or something like that. He was before my time out at the barn. The mare was El something or another and she has several of these crosses in her pedigree.

    I will ask Lee Ann tomorrow to look it up and let you know. I just love this little mare. She is such a cutie. I would say she is about 15 hh - not a little horse but not huge either.

    Well, wwe had a lot of firsts today...1st fall, 1st time mounting Drambuie from the ground, and 1st time riding Chivas in 2013.

    We hadn't been riding for long and Drambuie was moving well in a 8.6 mph trot when suddenly his foot went down in a hole and he shot back up and stopped, bless his heart. I was in some sort of weird position upside down along side his neck and there was nothing I could do but drop down on my rear...that left cheek is hurtin...anyway, I decided to just cut short his ride and ride Chivas instead.

    Chivas was wound tight cause as soon as I got on him a big gunshot blasted! I jumped a mile and caused Chivas to jump too...anyway, we had a nice little ride and he was nice and sweaty when we were done.

    Drambuie doesn't seem to have injured his leg, but he was giving on it just a bit so I will be back out to check him later. It was a long way back up on him from the ground! I've been using a step ladder to get up on him so mounting from the ground was a bit of a challenge.

    I located the track & got my milage from yesterday, so I'm happy about that anyway.

    Drambuie 1/7 5 miles 1/8 1.33 miles Chivas 1/8 2.15 miles

    Not really a bad day Celeste, but not the best! Thank you for the good wishes

    Chivas got good practice riding with gun blasts, so that is a good thing! The blasts kept happening, at least 6 times. It was fun to ride him, he is so responsive and forward thinking while still being very light in the bridle. Of course when I first got on him it was really weird feeling cause he had no neck cause he was all drawn-up...I thought the horse shrank!! LOL

    I very much hope Drambuie is ok, I really love that horse and have high hopes for him. I'm fine, just sore on the left lower back & cheek...not enough padding back there!! I do love the way Drambuie reacted too, he just stopped and looked down at me. Didn't move a muscle either as I climbed back on him.

    I have a meeting tonight and one first thing in the morning, yuck.

    Was pooped after my first round of classes this morning, but had to go out and see Drif since I know riding time will be very limited this semester. We were both in "eh" moods. Didn't do much in the way of trail riding.

    We did however practice standing ground tied while we tacked up! He did FABULOUSLY! So proud of him. Supposed to rain tomorrow, so I don't know if I will ride or not.

    Also, know this isnt exactly trail related, but Drift has been recovering from a stifle injury and he trotted over some poles beautifully this evening! My dreams of competing in jumping with him arent over yet! We have also been practicing different obstacles from the actha website. It's so much fun!

    Here is a pic of his ground tying/tacking up with no halter lesson. He was a saint

    I have been so busy with my business, trying to get all these candles made, I haven't been able to be out at the barn for more than to feed, much less actually ride. All I was able to do over the weekend was to take all four of the horses out and lunge them for about 15 minutes each. Poor Rose didn't even want to come out of her field, much less put any effort into doing anything. The arabian I have for sale though, he was rearing to go! Lunged him pretty hard for a while, trying to burn up some of his energy, and at one point he spooked at something, bolted and pulled me off my feet, while he slipped and did a hard fall on his side. I think he spooked at the fox that was running beside the pen that I didn't even see until I stood up and caught the horse. Either way, all is well and no one was hurt. So..

    Still no real miles logged yet.
