    I hope you have fun! I think that Biscuit is beautiful! I like to see a well filled out horse even if I should want to see them thinner. Now if my husband felt that way about women.........

    Thanks Celeste. He looks so much better than when I first got him. He looked "delicate" under saddle and freaking skinny without one. No shine to his coat either. Biscuit wasn't even broke to ride til he was around 5 years old and wasn't fooled with much either. After being broke to ride, Kenny only rode him or fooled with him once a month and had to chase him with a four wheeler to catch him. The trainer that had him that was so harsh on him kept him locked up in a little tiny stall. Poor fellow.

    This past weekend was the Old Dominion. I was supposed to be doing the 100 with Dream, however I didn't feel her leg had healed enough, so she didn't go. DH was going to do the 100 with Sultan and a friend was going to be riding George in the 50.

    Mother nature was in a bad mood. It started raining on the way down Thursday and didn't stop until late Friday evening. Several inches of rain later, our trailer was parked in literally 6 inches of standing water and the poor horses were in mud up to their fetlocks. DH decided to drop to the 50, as the trails were a muddy mess and I wouldn't have wanted to be traversing them in the dark either.

    After vetting in the horses:



    Crewing for DH:



    Where the rig had been parked (some rigs needed up to 3 trucks to pull them out!!):



    Dream's leg is looking better, so I hope to at least get back in the saddle for some training rides this week. Its been so long I may have forgotten how to ride!! Got a nice surprise in the mail yesterday though:




    Here's to many more!!

    Skinny never looks good. He looks great like he is.

    Dawn, kinda sounds like the weather I had in my one and only try at endurance riding. OMG rain like that sucks!!! Y'all looked great though. Sorry Dreams isn't 100% yet but hopefully she will get there quickly. Congrats on that 2000 mile patch...that is quiet the accomplishment!!!

    I haven't rode in 8 weeks and can't wait to get back in the saddle. of course, I will have to catch the little butter colored fellow. We just come back from the ranch and he ran from Barry like a spotted ape. I took Sarge out of the pasture and let him graze. Biscuit was wringing wet because it is freaking humid as all get out down here. Barry wanted to shoot him I told Barry he didn't ride much anymore and I was just going to take Sarge!

    HuntFishRide, I was up on top of Monte Cristo, Just East of Ogden, It's closer than driving up to Strawberry. I'm sure you could ride most of strawberry. Maybe a couple of the 10,500 might still have snow banks on the north faces

    I use a Cannon SX260 HS

    I used to have a Cannon Powershot SX150. But I hated the photos it produced. It just never seemed to have a crisp or really clear photo.

    I wondered about upgrading to the SX260 because it actually had fewer pixels
    12.1 vs 14.1 But in studying I learned that pixels are not always the what makes for a better photo. The SX 150 is 14.1 Megapixels in a 1/2.3" CCD vs the SX260 is 1/2.3 CMOS The CMOS provides a better image capture.

    The SX 260 is also faster 3200 ASA vs 1600 for SX150
    The SX 260 offers Image Recording in Fine and Superfine, vs the SX150 Normal and Fine


    $50 difference in the cost of a camera offers some features that make a difference when you are taking photos from the back of a horse. I just won't carry a full size DSLR camera. I still want something that will fit in my shirt pocket.

    I suspect if you go compare features for your camera, You will find the same kind of minor difference that are causing your problems

    Honestly, I think it'd be a lot easier if I never got good photos, but sometimes I do. As for instance this one of my friend's dog: taken under pine trees so a lot of variation in light intensity, yet it's pretty sharp and has true colors. Nothing special with settings except having ISO at 3200. Yet 9 times out of 10, a simple landscape will be even worse than the one I posted

    Some of our horses tried the whole running thing a long time ago and they have 48 acres, so that was a problem. They have stalls they eat in, but it really is a pain in the but to get 8 horses in their stalls just to catch 1. And of course if I put them in their stalls I have to give them some sort of treat for going in there like good little hoodlems. So I like to be able to catch mine out in the field. My mare that broke her leg back in December of 2011 was horrible about running when I first got her. She was off the track and had actually raced a week before I got her, so she was in very good shape, so she thought...... I gave her 2 weeks just out in the pasture because I had her shipped from California and wanted her to revover from the long trip before I rode her. 48 acres of knee high grass + being fed 2 a day + getting her feet done ( she had the longest feet ever, all toe and no heel. Which I understand gives racehorses a longer stride?) = her feeling like a million bucks! Went to go get her and she ran from me. Tried catching her for about 15 minutes to no avail. So we started up the 4 wheeler. Bahahaha!!! ( do it in an evil laugh) My mom drove the 4 wheeler and I stayed on the ground. She would chase her for about 10 minutes without giving Leyna any kind of rest time and chase her back around to where I was and stop. I would say, "Ho" and walk up to her and she would run again, so off on the 4 wheeler my mom would go again. About 30 minutes of that and she came running to me. LOL. Never had a problem with her running from me again. She liked to play trotting away from me, but would stop when I told her, Ho. We have had several others that we have had to get the 4 wheeler after.

    Leyna, LOL she must have been a pistol. His former owner used to chase him with a four wheeler so it must not have worked too well because he is still running.

    Actually, I went out at 8:00 AM this morning and he was at the gate with Sarge waiting on his feed. He let me pet his face and pat his shoulder. I noticed he had that same scared/worried look in his eyes as when I first got him. It is like he reverted to that frightened horse that while gentle, doesn't want to be caught. I got the halter off of the pole and he walked off. I let him go.

    I went out at lunch and he let me pet his face but didn't try to catch him. Maybe this afternoon I can get the panels out. The ranch hands were baling hay so they couldn't take them down to the pasture for me. They said maybe tomorrow. So unless hubby will do it in his precious Tundra, I will have to wait.

    You may have to go back to pushing him off and taking his spot in the pasture til he wants to be with you again.
