I got Trusty's coggins and vaccination done yesterday, but forgot about it taking a week to get the results back. I will still ride locally and keep the receipt showing it was pulled and waiting on the results. I'm going to make a couple of calls to try and get a companion to ride out with as I'm not to interested in new trails alone. I know how he will do, but it is the safety aspect of it just incase something did go wrong.

Hi everybody, I actually got out again this weekend! We did about 3 miles at the local lake again, this time off trail. Too many rocks and cactus but the wild flowers were beautiful. Last month we had blue bonnets and buttercups, yesterday they were replaced with Indian blankets, black eyed susans, and another purple flower. Colors of deep orange, rich gold, and brilliant purple. Brought the camera but once out there didn't feel like hassling with it.
I bought one easy boot epic for my mare, and she doesn't have any issues with it on her foot, so after the rocks yesterday, I've decided to go ahead and get three more.
She has been awesome on the trail. Nerves at the beginning are gone. Had trouble loading her on the trailer to go home, was the first time ever for that, but she can be stubborn sometimes.
Roadyy, watch out, after school is out in a couple of weeks you are going to inherit the honor of having lowest miles :)

I didn't get to trail ride yesterday or today, but I did have some horse time. My son's GF had never ridden before and she wanted to try. At first she was too scared, but then she changed her mind. She rode in the arena yesterday and today. To start with my son would lead her around. Then she rode on her own a little. She walked most of the time, but she eventually got her nerve up to trot. Maybe I'll make a convert out of her yet.

I got to ride Sissy yesterday, a few miles. Drove the pair this morning, but they were so good that I had to quit while I was ahead, so it wasn't too long. I was PLANNING to ride again, but we passed my hay man's place, and he was baling, so we stopped, and his son followed us to the house!!! They were about to unload it out of the field....timing is everything!!

I also got my garden in....finally! In Texas, garden season is winding down, and here, just beginning. I am already spoiled by the weather here, and now think 82 is bordering on hot, even with no humidity.....sorry.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day everyone!!

I did not get any riding in over the holiday weekend. It was a relaxing weekend of Church Sunday morning then went to town with DW and DD before finding my cousin to take out to dinner. Had him come back and stay the night with us to go to the creek yesterday. THE WATER IS COLD!!!! It's a natural fed spring that feeds over into the creek and is 65* year round. I will get the pics off my phone a little later to post up.

Had a good weekend at our Endurance ride. I ended up not riding, my gelding stepped on something and the bulb of his foot was a little sore. He was completely sound and cleared to go by the vet, but every once in a while he would step on a rock and kind of dip, so the night before the ride I decided not to ride him. What's the point? Lol. I didn't want to make him even more sore. It's a good thing I did not ride, because my help was needed during the ride. First thing that morning I had to take the 4 wheeler and go get a friend off the trail. As she was going around a corner a vine caught her foot and she could not get it off and she was doing about a 10 mph trot, so it just lifted her leg right over the horse and she hit the ground. Hit her head 3 times, thank GOD for her helmet. She had a mild concussion, but that's better than being knocked out. Her helmet had a 2 inch crack right behind the ear. She was ok though, so get her back to camp and get her settled and then horses started coming in and we ended up having 3 horses colic. 2 pretty seriously, after that I was busy helping the treatment vet mix bags of fluid and getting the horses hooked up to IV's. The 1st horse to colic kept ripping out his IV cathiter. So he had to be so drugged that we had to recruit people to help hold him up. Eventually 2 of the 3 had to be transported to Universities. One to Gainsville and one to Auburn. Last I heard all the horses were doing much better and were expected to fully recover! Thank GOD!

I did not get to ride my new guy yesterday like I had planned. I was wiped out by the time we finally got home. But I did get some updated pictures of him and my 2 1/2 year old. And the herd minus 2.

Here are a few pics from the creek. I can't wait to hit the equine trails that weave in and out of the creek.

The dark green area of that pool is where the spring comes up out of the ground and is about 9' deep.

God sure gave us a glorious weekend, blue bird weather, or one of those "chamber of commerce" days when you can see seven states from rock city.....lows in the low fifties and highs in the low 70's.....nice and cool under the thick canopy....not many bugs either.

Rode Iron Mountain Saturday, 12 miles, and Sumac Creek Sunday, 13 miles.

I'm over 200 miles and hope to get another 50 before laying low during the heat of the summer.

I had ear surgery last week and am grounded for a bit, but Bloo had a show over the weekend with his therapy rider. Her wish was to show him and win a ribbon so we went and did a few lead line classes and she did a walk trot by herself. She ribboned in all her classes. Bloo practically danced around the ring with their ribbons at the end.
It's supposed to rain giraffes and hippopotami for the next few days and with my new schedule it'll be even longer before I can ride.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.
