    Two lectures and two labs. Since it is a full semester in 8 weeks, it will be very busy.

    I love all the pictures everyone has been posting, including Roady, Dawn, Leyna, and everyone else!

    Denise, I am also curious to see how you saddle fits on a few different horse. I have a similar problem with a saddle I had made to fit Chivas, and it doesn't. Beautiful but useless

    Anyway, I finally got out with some friends for a campout at Talladega Forsest. Worked all night Thursday 6:30 pm to 8 am, then fed everyone and loaded up.

    I brought along Jenny & her horse Dreamer, and my two boxers along with of course Chivas. It was my first time camping with horses, and first time camping with the dogs. They kept looking around for the hotel!

    Anyway, we rode the same white trail Friday & Saturday. Walk, trot canter in the exact same places too.

    I got in an extra little training ride working Chivas around the campground, making him go past all the terrors without bolting! Terrors like tots runing, jumping and waving sticks around. Then of course there are the tents that eat horses, and pile of tack on the ground just waiting to jump out at him! Silly boy!

    Then we got rained out so we all came home. Drat. I had planned to ride the white Friday, the yellow Saturday, and finish with the red Sunday. That would have given me a total of 25 miles for the weekend, but didn't happen. We wound up only getting in 9.5 miles. Bummer.

    I only got a few pics of my "new" rig with the rear end of my tired horses...Chivas was too wired up for me to get a hand free to film while riding. Anyway, here's the pics and I'm glad we got in some ride time.

    Oh, I have discovered it is NOT a good idea to bring spoiled, large, housedogs out on a camping trip especially with horses!

    I didn't get out to the barn today. I have a "crick" in my neck and OMG I would like to carve out the space just below my ear, down my neck and along the clavicle. I took a muscle relaxer and went back to bed at 10 AM til 2:00 PM. My riding buddy cousin was having a 83rd birthday party for her dad so I went over to her house and got to see my mom's first cousins and my 2nd cousins. I got to harass my cousin's husband which is always fun for me. Got to see her horses that I haven't seen in 7 weeks so that was good. Hopefully going out to the barn tomorrow. I have another cousin (he found my former horse, Red for me) who passed out today and is in the hospital til tomorrow. He is almost 72 and will be leaving Thursday for the Cayman Islands and stay with his daughter. I am asking for prayers for him as he is in poor health and I am afraid if I don't go see him tomorrow I might never see him again. So maybe I will be able to take pictures with Sarge or maybe not.

    Amy - I liked the pictures of your new ride and the Brenderup. Sounds like you had a good time and next time...leave the spoiled pups at home. !!!!

    Dang, that crick in my neck is a PITA. OMG I didn't sleep worth a darn last night. I just talked to my cousin and he hasn't been released from the hospital poor darlin'. He said he busted his mouth when he passed out.

    He is single and lives by himself and he is all worried about getting the hay in for the winter for his 20 something cows. He lives about an hour from me and has a beautiful place...LOVE his house. He has a commercial Hobart grill that is killer for grilling!!

    Keep up some prayers for this old cowboy....he is my buddy.

    It must be going around, I slept wrong or something and I've had a crick in my neck for 4 days now.

    Rode the Iron Mountain trail again up to Doogans firetower and then finished the loop.....15.5 miles....216 for me and Miss Lacy.....Out of town next week so no riding for me for at least two weeks... I need two more good weekends on the trail before the dog days of summer hit....in order to get to where I want to be mileage wise.

    Annita Anne, I'm a little jealous....haven't camped once this spring.....that's unusual for us but with all the rain we've had this year, understandable. Had another 1.25 inches last night....we're over 13 inches above normal for rain this year.

    Ok y'all. I had to drag Barry out to the barn today to see my boys. He thought it was just dumb to put my saddle on Sarge. He didn't see why that would help me. I told him I am always trying to learn more about saddle fitting on horses that have "issues and concerns".

    We put the saddle on Sarge and it fit him nicely. Barry rode him around in it - he said he didn't care for it but it was comfortable. He cantered Sarge around a little and Biscuit was cantering right along with them.

    I took a picture of Biscuit's back - it is slightly roached. I am finding saddle fitting for the Biscuit a bit of a challenge. I would like to have a Steele saddle made for him. Of course, this is all moot until I can ride again.

    You probably will need a fill in pad for Biscuit no matter what type of saddle you get. The one you have might work if you can find the right pad.

    I have an Equipedic pad with shims but they are WAY too thick and made the saddle sit up way too high on him so I removed the shims. I have spent a fortune on saddle pads
