    Painted Horse-- Were you riding the Strawberry area? It looks like the snow is pretty much gone already?

    Thanks everyone

    Roadyy--I think we will be ready! I kind of kicked myself in the butt for not doing the 25, but I was so unsure whether we'd be ready. Guess it was Selena's way of telling me to stop being such a wuss

    Here's one from yesterday, riding by the lake (Lake Davis - Northern California) in a patch of (I think) Meadow Penstemon (p. Rydbergii). Sorry for the lack of horse ears

    And a bit off-topic, but for PH and others that post those really great pictures, what the heck are you using for cameras? I have a Canon ELPH 100HS, and I am very dissatisfied with picture quality. Lack of sharp focus is one thing, but I suppose even at highest speed you have to expect a bit of blurring from the back of a moving horse. The main problem, though, is the washed-out color. This was the best of a dozen or so shots, yet you can barely see that the flowers are purple. In real life, they're a far more vivid blue-purple, the grass is vivid green, etc.

    What setting are taking the pictures in? Auto? You should be able to go into settings and adjust/tweek the exposure settings to get a more vivid product.

    I went out yesterday to see my horses with a friend from back in the day as kids - she was my horse buddy and maid of honor at my wedding. We haven't really seen much of each other in years but she wanted to see my horses. Biscuit was a good boy, haltered him, brought him up to the wash rack and rinsed him off. He acted like it hurt but he got treats of apples from Maryalyce and he liked that...got to graze for a while.

    Today, go out there to get him to groom him and he was going to be ridden by the girl who rode him recently. OMG he ran from me like a crazy horse...for an hour and then a 1/2 hour for KD. Wouldn't let us catch him. I walked after him round and round for an hour at noon in the freaking Texas heat and humidity til I literally felt ill.

    Never could catch him and he is acting like a horse that is almost afraid someone. He is in a 2.5 acre pasture or maybe a little bigger. He tried to get Sarge to join in but Sarge was like "dude, didn't you know it is freaking hot and I am not joining in this foolishness".

    I went back later at feeding time and tried to catch him. I got almost up to him with feed and he spun around (I think Biscuit missed his calling for barrel racing) so fast and was gone. Ok...no feed for you. There is a nice pasture of grass of course but grain will be withheld until I can catch him. Tomorrow may be totally different. He may stand there like a trooper to b e caught. I know that I haven't been able to fool around with him since I started having all of these health issues but this is the pits. If I can catch him, he will go into the arena and stay in there. It actually has grass in it so he won't be lacking exercise or food. I just need to be where I can catch him and work with him. Ugh....I never had problems til March of this year with this horse!

    He probably is just being ornery because you haven't been able to work with him for a while. When you get back to riding, he should do better. Do you have a stall or small pen you can call him into for feeding? I lock my girls in a small paddock before they even see the halters. As long as I handle them most every day, they are no problem to catch though.

    Celeste, I think I may be able to set up panels. I actually own 3 and the barn manager has 4 from our endurance training rides. I can set them up from the shed to the fences. I will ask her about getting them out and down there tomorrow. LOL I took Sarge out to let him eat grass outside of the pasture in the shade. Biscuit came right up to the fence watching us like he wanted to go too. He is sucking back from me when I would get close and then spinning and running. I know he was mistreated before and he is acting like a goober at times. Yesterday he was flinching when I was hosing him off and scrunching up his skin like the water was scalding hot. It wasn't hot nor too cold. I started at his feet and worked my way up. I am going back out to the barn shortly with hubby to see if he can catch him. LOL maybe this is Biscuit's idea of rehab for his old broken chick I got a work out today and then went to the Wellness Center to walk in the lap pool. My muscles should be getting better with all of this!

    I think the panels will do the trick. I would feed him in the enclosure every time you go out. It doesn't have to be much feed. I liked the pictures of Biscuit. I think that he is getting a bit tubby. If he gets much more vacation, he'll be as fat as my "Princess". My farrier laughed at how fat she is. I wish I had the time and energy to work the fat off of me and off of her.

    He is a bit of a chunky bunky but the picture actually made him look heftier than he really is.

    They have cut his feed way back so he should be dropping some poundage. If I can catch him we are going horse camping this weekend and KD is coming up Saturday to ride him. He will be in a small pen this weekend up at the park. I will be able to walk him and groom him while there without having to catch the little rascal.
