My riding days are over until at least August which will probably be September. My horse went to Alabama today and I leave for Minnesota on Sat for 10 weeks.

I was hoping to get in one last ride this weekend but storms made me cancel. So I am bummed.

10 weeks without your horse? I am so sorry. Hopefully that time flies by!

The old man, Temper Tantrum and me cruising down the trail last weekend. He turned 18 this year and is still the bomb to ride. If you look closely you can see the gray hairs behind his bridle on either side of his bridal path. His real name is Mystiques Temptation, but I call him Temper Tantrum. It took a multi day of back to back 50's to get him out of throwing his tantrums. Haha! Then he turned into the kind of horse that you just sit back and watch everyone else's rodeo at the start of an endurance race. He thinks it's fun to watch also. Temper is the one who taught my mare that broke her leg in December of 2011, to be so awesome. She had a tendency to get hot, but my mom and I rode together and at the time Temp was her main horse. He taught Leyna to sit back and relax at the start and no silly stuff the first 5 miles of a ride. And she gradually learned from him that she was there to work and man, did she love her job! So does this guy!

We have a 50 miler this weekend, so wish us luck!
Sorry it is so shaky! Trying to hold Temper to a controled pace and ducking tree's and holding a camera was a little more challenging than I thought it would be!

Well, at least you have something to look forward to in 10 weeks right?

Absence makes the heart grow fonder......or so they say.

It is a very good reason. I am lucky to have earned a position working on a Department of Homeland Security grant. My student and I will be doing chemistry research at UMN. I just am feeling homesick before I leave because I have to leave hubby, doggie, and horsey in Georgia while I am gone. I do plan on having fun though. Julie Goodnight is doing a clinic in Fergus Falls June 15 that I would like to go to. I also want to see as much of the state as I can. I am doing my other hobby of photography this summer.

That's a GREAT picture, QOS!!! We drove the pair on the road Sunday in the rain, but it was not enough to need PONCHOS!!!

Endurance, that picture is beautiful! It gets like that here in KY after it rains, so about every other DAY!!

Around here, I rode Sissy yesterday(before the rain!!!) on the new "flat pond arena". We actually got the eyesore of a "pond" bulldozed!! It was just so ugly. Took up about an acre, did not hold water, so it was a lovely orange mud hole, surrounded by washed out rocks, and dammed on almost 4 (!!) sides, with scrubby cedar trees growing on them. When the grass grows, I will have an extra acre of pasture, AND another flat spot to ride and drive!

He also jack-hammered my big rock out of my trailer parking space behind my barn, so a little gravel, and I won't be grounded by rain, and the horse trailer will not be parked in front of the house!!SWEET!

Good thing I live in the country.....
