    Yep, he's a golden Lipizzan; very rare! LOL

    *fun fact* The riders store the treats in their long coat tails; they do double duty as weights to keep the tails hanging down instead of flapping in the wind

    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.
    We see what October brings. The 10 mile fun ride sounds....well.....fun. I think I'll pass all together on the 75 miler....

    Woot!!!! I rode The Biscuit today and he couldn't have been a better angel.

    My barn manger held him while I mounted just to be careful. He was a doll. I got on with the tiniest of trouble getting my right leg over the cantle. Rode for 30 minutes at a walk. Did a lot of start, stop, backup. He side passed to right like a pro. So proud of him for that. He walked nice and slow - never tried speed up when not asked. Good boy! When I got off, Alison (she did some training with him when I first got him) held him and I had the tiniest issue getting my leg over the cantle. No problem sliding off BUT my feet are still numb and I can't tell when they are in the stirrups or not.

    Going riding with cousin tomorrow. Going to go slow and steady!

    QOS I'm so glad you can finally ride! I missed it but I was definitely sending you some prayers.

    My bleeding heart's got me in trouble again. A friend called me desperate for help when one of her boarders brought in a horse that was foundered in both fronts, with a knee the size of a cantaloupe, a terrible case of stomach ulcers, and a problem with his hip. He's also starting to get sores from laying down so much but I'm doing my best to keep him up. The vet came out and took x-rays and did a work up on him, the founder is fixable but it's going to take a lot of time and she thinks he's worth it if I put the time into him. The girl bought the horse after failing to buy a horse people would be jealous over on more than on occasion. She tends to buy horses that are way too much for her then sells them or gives them back when she gets too frustrated. Like this one, but she saw a video of him jumping and was amazed buy him. Any nut job with eyes could have seen there is something wrong with this horse, even if you knew nothing about horses. I'm so mad I'm such a softie! I just blew my chances of bringing Cowboy over here. With the amount of care Pretty Boy needs and the horses I've got for training I don't see much time for riding my immediate future. So get out there and take lots of pictures I'm trail riding vicariously through y'all all for a while.

    She is 6, almost 15 h, by The Apostolos, out of my wonderful mare who was by DZ Miekki. Mielkki was an open dressage champion, and bred well into his 30's.

    She has a half sister, also Egyptian sired, doing endurance in CA.

    She has great legs and feet, and a really easy long stride. I expect her to widen out as I get her going undersaddle. I am SLOW! Her move from Texas to KY was only her second time in the trailer, and she got right in at our overnight stop, too.

    Let me know if anyone is interested...Thanks!!

    LOL! And I missed this post! I will take this info down and keep an eye out!

    Thanks Bloo...I know God heard all of the prayers! Thanks to all who have said prayers for me.

    So sorry about this poor fellow. Hope his is on his way to recovery soon. Grrrrrr...hate to see animals abused or neglected. Poor old Biscuit was neglected and had been harshly treated. I am still dealing with the effects at times.

    On Sunday I took Dare out for his first away from home training ride and he did wonderful! Now this is a horse that , in my opinion was not even green broke, has never been out of the round pen till I got him! And I have been riding him on trails for 2 months but never with a group of horses. Well Sunday we trailered somewhere plus there was a group of horses and he did great! He was not jacked up or bad to mount, he was his usual self to mount, he did not even act like the group of horses bothered him. He was actually more interested in stopping to meet each horse than going forward. LOL

    The trimmer is coming Saturday, and so I will have some conformation shots of Lucy then. I am hoping the rain will hold off so I can ride her today.

    QOS, I am SO glad you had a good safe ride! Have fun out on the trails!

    BlooBabe, welcome to my life!! I have that Morgan that could no longer let live with 6" tall feet, trotting full out on the pavement 20 miles...
    And my friend's horse, while she gets treatment for a brain tumor....

    Leyna, that boy is AMAZING!!

    Celeste, I agree....raining when I am not doing cakes is wrong.
