QOS, you KNOW what I say to that.....If your back feels OK, get on the horse, even just to get back off again...but I think you know what you can handle, and he is covering his medical malpractice you know what!!

I want you to stay sound, though!!!

Roadyy how sweet and generous of you!!!

Greentree I am feeling better. Occasionally have a little twinge to the left of the incision but that is usually after being in the pool. I have a feeling he is going to say I can slowly start riding.

I hope you get to start riding, Denise!

Last year it never rained. This year it is raining every day. And it is not the nice little showers that you can ride in. We have lightening popping, thunder clapping, wind, and just really bad conditions. I am really wishing it would dry up soon.

I feel for you Celeste. The woods where we loved to ride are still wet. It has rained so much the woods are deep in mud. Dang.

I had a beautiful lightning show on the way to work this morning. Everything is soaked here at work just like yesterday. It looks like it may clear up around 7-8am so they may stay and work the 8 hours today.

Wife asked me if I heard the storm come through last night and I said what storm. lol I love storms as I could sleep a week in them. I don't like the clean up aftermath.

We had a little lapse between storms and the DH and I went for a little 2.8 mile ride. My "Pretty Princess" was back. She worked calmly on a loose rein. I only really used the bit once when she went into a trot without being asked and she responded immediately. There were two differences today from the other day when she went psycho. First, there was no new horse to be terrified of. Donna didn't come because it seems to be a waste to haul an hour with all those storms predicted. The second issue was that I trimmed her tail so that she didn't pick up any evil sticks that would certainly take on their own life and try to murder her. I trimmed off 4 inches. It still dragged the ground so I took off 4 more inches. I wish that I had done it in one cut so I'd have a nice little piece of tail hair. In some ways it seems sad to trim such a nice long tail, but then again, the ends are split anyway and a good trim leaves behind healthy hair. The shorter tail is necessary in the woods.

Abby spooked in place once because a baby armadillo ran right under her feet. The Princess saw what it was and didn't even spook.

I lost power at work around 4 am so I got out work early enough to feed breakfast. There was some pretty awesome lightning going on with the rain and thunder. Bloo loves the rain but is afraid of thunder so when I got to the barn he was hiding at the back of his shed. He wouldn't even come out for a doughnut and he never turns down a doughnut. It's supposed to rain for the rest of the week but hopefully not as hard as it was this morning. All this rain is bogging everything up so there won't be good footing on the trails for a while.

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

The mental picture I got from this was hysterical. Gotta love a horse sometimes!!!

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.
