    Painted horse, how beautiful!!

    I rode Lucy out in the big driving area today...she was AWESOME! Walking and trotting nicely.Her trot is fabulous, springy but smooth.

    Roadyy, your neighbors better buy this mare before I get attached! My hoof trimmer is supposed to be back from Wyoming, so I hope he can do her this week, then I can update the pictures.

    AnitaAnne, hope your bite gets better. Did you take some Benadryl?

    After Painted Horse's thread I guess I shouldn't complain about the heat......so I'll complain about the humidity.

    We rode Dry Creek in Georgia Saturday, got there about 10 o'clock in the morning and the sun was already pretty high.....the ride itself wasn't that bad as most of it was under the canopy but let me tell ya.....the parking don't have lick of shade and the sweat just rolled off me while tacking up.....

    Rode Garland Mountain GA Sunday, humidity was much less and the trail wasn't so challenging...

    Me and Miss Lacy are at 267 miles, past my goal of 250 for this time in the year and over a hundred miles more than this time last year. I think the dog days are about here.....not sure I'll be riding as much till cooler weather.

    You were there this weekend?? I was off this weekend...I thought you went last weekend?? Agh double drat I could have escaped from my two bored teens...and rode with y'all

    What about October Gunslinger? Do you want to ride in Talladega on the Yellowhammer Endurance ride? I'm going to crew for Lenyaproof on the 75 mile Thursday and ride the 10 mile fun ride Saturday.

    I sprayed topical Benadryl all over the bite Greentree, I am just hoping it is not a spider bite.

    Painted Horse - loved that video.

    Celeste - I know some folks that haul their horses at times even just to go to Wal-Mart! LOL he said it gets them used to riding in a trailer, seeing different stuff and different noises. Their horses are pretty calm around just about anything.

    Amy - hope it wasn't a spider or a nasty tick.

    Yesterday when I got to the barn the thermometer in my RAV was reading 100. When we left and drove off I expected the temp to drop...not on your life. It went to 101. And this is not a "dry" heat. It is a freaking steam bath. Biscuit and Sarge were wet with sweat from just standing outside. Ugh. Summer is here. My cousin rode at Tyrrell yesterday and the woods are still soaking wet and deep with mud.

    I go to the doctor TOMORROW. I would appreciate some prayers that he will release me to ride so I can join in on the thread!!!

    Here is a pic of me and Biscuit bonding today. Denise-and-Biscuit-Heart.jpg

    Biscuit looks happy & so do you
    Praying for a release to ride from the doc, and cool weather for your first ride. May that ride be your best ever!

    Has it dramatically improved today? If not, go to the doctor!!

    Spider bites are nothing to mess around with if you are reacting to them. Depending on what bit you, that red tissue could be the start of a massive abscess. Ouch!!

    I had a pretty exciting weekend, despite mother nature thinking we needed 5+ inches of rain in 48 hours. Luckily our property is at the top of a hill, so we didn't have to worry about flooding (or mudslides or tornadoes) like some in the surrounding area did!!

    On Friday evening, I took Gamer on her very first trail ride!! We did just shy of 2 miles and she led a lot of the way. Not too bad for only her 4th time under saddle!!

    Saturday we spent trying to get chores done between thunderstorms. Woke up Sunday morning and figured we better get the boys out before the storms started up again. DH and I left the farm at 10am and it was already 78% humidity, so was like riding through a swamp. We took the boys over to check out the trails where all the logging had been going on. We were thrilled to see the logging is done and the trails are open again!!




    Had been hoping to get Dream out today, but between the 2 inches of rain we got yesterday evening and the storm before it was even light this morning, there is standing water everywhere there can be. Guess I am stuck cleaning the house.

    Rain? Whats that? Oh yeah, It's those few drops that disturbs the dust on your car making it look really ugly until you get to the car wash.

    It's so dang dry here in the west. My horses hooves are hard as rocks to trim.

    NO riding for US, today either, thanks to the big thunderstorm with 4+ inches of rain last night!!!

    Denise, good luck at the DR, and remember, don't ASK about riding!! When he says something looks good, take that and RUN!!!

    Amy, Biscuit is coming along. He still has a little bit of that nervous look in his eyes but this week I will be able to spend more time with him as I do not have a wedding cake. I did a wedding cake/groom's cake and a bridal shower cake this weekend and I am whooped. Here is a pic of the cakes. I did 266 servings of cake this weekend. Biscuit said for me to get after it - he needs alfalfa and treats.

    Dawn, Gamer looks like she is coming along nicely. How old is she? I am sure you have said before but I can't remember!

    Painted Horse, we were in a drought 2 years ago. OMG the trails in Tyrrell Park in the woods sounded like we were walking on porcelain tiles and there were HUGE cracks in the trails that caused the horses to trip. Sigh....now there is so much rain the trails are a soggy mess. It is either six or a half dozen of the other...can't win for losing. Hope y'all get some rain.

    LOL Nancy, you are too funny. I am hoping for a good report and a release to ride. I do want to follow everything he says as I am now missing the back side of my spinal column on 2.5 vertebra's! I don't want to go backward. Honey Darling Precious is seriously lacking when it comes to the nursing department.
