    Woo hoooooo!!!! I can add 1.8 miles to my yearly total now! Kellie and I got out to Tyrrell Park today to ride. The woods had some muddy spots and lots of hard dried ROUGH spots where hogs had gone through. Had to go around the pipe line in two spots, saw 3 little pigs and Biscuit and I played spider polo quiet successfully. Nearly got a face full of spiders several times as they can be hard to see in the late evening.

    I didn't have any trouble mounting or dismounting today. I realized last night that my stirrups had been adjusted longer by the girl who was riding Biscuit and so yesterday when I rode I had a little bit of trouble getting on and off. My horse was an angel the entire ride which was wonderful.

    On the way home a man was broke down on the side of the road with a horse in the trailer and he flagged me down. I had to circle back around the highway and eventually loaded his horse and hauled him and his lady friend around the corner from my barn. The horse loaded up the ramp with just a little coaxing. She seemed to be a really sweet mare.

    Kellie and I are going tomorrow evening too. My back isn't bothering me at all but we were just walking. It felt good to be back in our woods riding. They need some attention though - lots of ROUGH spots and stickers.

    I am so glad that you got to ride!!! "Spider polo." I love that term!

    Unfortunately, the weather doesn't look good for the horse back riders in west central Georgia today.

    SE Tennessee and NW Georgia isn't the place to be riding this week either if you don't want to get wet....we've had over 5 inches this week just north of Chattanooga and expecting another 2 to 5 inches between now and Saturday.

    We've had so many years in a row below normal on rainfall that having one above normal is probably a blessing.

    Our water tables were extremely low. We had a stream to dry up and came close to losing a pond. I was worried about our well too. So I can't complain about the rain. Just the timing. On the holidays..................

    I agree, we need the rain, but I don't like the timing! Always on my day off I have seriously been thinking of trying to get on the opposite schedule, just because of the rain! I'd have to change departments to do it though.

    July 4th is one holiday that is never a riding one, too many fireworks going off. Unfortunately it usually lasts all week, and I have one dog so frightened I can't get her out from under things to even go outside.

    Plus it was most likely fireworks this past weekend that caused Drambuie to reinjure his back. I don't know this for a fact, but it is highly likely based on the way he panics when he hears them.

    We live miles from the fireworks celebrations. (They have put them off until Saturday night anyway.) My horses would probably get upset if there were fireworks going off close by; however, things going boom in the distance don't phase them. There are hunters and target shooters around here and they are used to it sounding like a war zone in November.

    The city has moved in all around us, so kids & young adults are having celebrations all over the place. If it rains they just wait until the next day or two.

    The guns don't bother him anymore, but the fireworks with the bright flashes in the sky blow their minds. Some of the home fired ones are huge!

    I remember the kids shooting off some fireworks back in the cow pasture years ago and starting a minor stampede. I could see how the horses could go psycho from it.
