    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!!
    Not dramatically better, but no worse...I am just going to keep a watch on it

    Wonderful ride on Gamer!! Isn't it fun having a new horse to teach? Especially such a bright, willing one!

    She really looks eager to to go look at things except for the dreaded puddle of death!! Too funny to watch! Keep the good work & videos coming!

    That could have been me & Chivas on his first puddle crossing, except Gamer didn't do the "fly 10 feet backwards" 1st like Chivas did!

    She so reminds me of my Baby's attitude, he was an AngloArab/Percheron cross I bought as an unbroke 3.5 yr old. I miss him a lot, he had such a big personality. And big feet too

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.
    Beautiful cakes Denise! Yummy!

    Dawn, I just now got around to watching Gamer's video. She is doing great. I also think that I learned something about teaching horses to cross puddles. I have gotten off and lead them through once or twice, but doing it over and over worked great. Smart move. She figured out that the puddle didn't go all the way to the bottom of the planet and out the other side.

    She really seems to be calm. My horse is extremely high strung in new situations even now after riding her for a good while. She certainly wasn't that calm for the first ride out. Or the first 50 rides out.

    WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!!!




    I get to ride!!! I am so excited!! I thought my dr. Would say no - not yet. His office manager and I were talking just before he came into the room and she said he generally says no. She said that he is not a fan of motorcycles and horses - I guess he has seen plenty of injuries from them. She said if he says no to ask him if he will ever say yes. She said if he says probably not to do as Nancy said...ride when I feel like it.

    He came in, said I was doing great - I had to do the push with my legs, feet, toes. Walked for him doing my heel to toe tin soldier walk and he said very good...see you in 4-6 months. I said ok...well, let's talk turkey first. He said "what kind of turkey?" and I said "horse turkey". He said "go ride and have a great summer...just DON'T fall off!!"

    So excited. I had to feed the horses when I got home. Biscuit came in fast from the pasture but I am sure it is more the feed and the treats he has been getting but whatever it takes.

    Going out tomorrow to put his saddle on him and ride a little bit in the arena and work with him. My cousin Kellie and I will be going for a ride Wednesday evening around 6:30 or so when it cools off maybe just a tad!!! Can't wait to add pictures to the thread of me RIDING instead of just pictures of The Biscuit! Thanks for the well wishes and prayers! They were certainly answered!

    Thank everyone. I slept really late. My knee was freaking killing me from driving to Houston. Arthritis sucks. Heading out to the barn to train my Spanish Riding Horse Biscuit. Yep...he is a treat boy and I will now be telling people he is a Spanish Lipizzan !
