Seems like last year I asked the DH to pray for rain. I am going to see if he can retract that request.........

Kellie and I were supposed to ride this morning but it was raining at her house - hasn't rained here yet and it may or may not

We do need a little rain right now for the week but just some not a bunch. So sick of it raining! It messed up my ride this week! I have had a blast riding my horse this week and just in general working with him. I am hoping to get strong enough to mount from the ground - my legs are still stiff to a certain degree so that makes it harder

Bloo, I guess it was about 3 years ago we were riding in the woods and it was my first time in there with spiders. I was whacking away at them and a huge spider was attached to my crop and I was waving it back and forth trying to dislodge it and OMG the spider finally came off and landed with a splat on my cousins shirt on the hem line on the top of her leg. OMG she screamed like a little 4 year old girl. She is scared to death of them. She said the guts stained her shirt Hahahahah last year she thought, mind you THOUGHT she had a spider on her and the next thing I knew she was stripping off her shirt and throwing at me to make sure there were no spiders on it. OMG had my camera been on it would have been a million dollar film.

Here is a still picture of one of the Spider Polo Opponents. I left this one alone as it was up higher and we could ride under it. And Nancy, Biscuit's new purple body brush...much softer than his other purple brush!

The spider landing on your cousin reminds me of something that happened to my cousin. He was driving down the interstate in Atlanta traffic when a yellowjacket that had been in his car flew up his pants leg. It started stinging him. He pulled over into the emergency lane, jumped out of his car, danced around trying to get away, and pulled off his pants. When the nasty little bug finally flew off and quit tormenting him, he took the time to look around him. There was a state patrolmen with his blue lights flashing pulled in behind him. Traffic had almost stopped as people stared at the crazy man that was dancing and stripping off his pants beside the highway. He actually was able to talk the officers out of arresting him by showing them the stings on his leg.

Amy, we have seen some huge spiders out there and a nest with over 30 in it. Most of them were little but still --- ugh....glad we didn't have to clear that one out before proceeding. Playing spider polo has helped me with my quick stop skills and side passing. Helps Biscuit too. He will side pass nicely to the right. Not so much to the left!

Celeste, glad the poor fellow didn't get a ticket. Sounds like he'd been through enough!!! I bet y'all haven't let him live that down.

That THANG looks bigger than the HORSE!!!!

We don't have those here....nope, don't miss 'em.

Boy, am I turning into a WHINER....it hit 90 today...started thinking it felt hot. Sorry, y'all.

Drove the pair, that was it. Down the road, so it was shady. Whiner.

My friend and I went out riding a few months ago and saw a decent sized spider in a web about face level. We were riding side by side and both of us dismounted to avoid it before our horses even knew what was going on. We decided the ride was over and our skin was crawling all the way back to the barn. Our poor horses thought they were going to die and were wide eyed looking at everything like it was going to attack us. QOS You deserve a medal for riding with those things. If I were in your situation with the spider on the crop, I would have called it a loss as my first instinct with spiders on things is to throw it.

We're getting rain and thunder all week. Bloo cracked his hoof on his little romp and made it worse doing something yesterday. So no riding till the farrier comes out. He was just out the other day to do a trim and put Pretty Boy's shoes on. I thought about apprenticing under him and get back into farrying but I love him too much to not have him come around.

Back work after a week's worth of water logged vacation time. Couple of families from church had their homes flooded Thursday.

I didn't get a single opportunity to ride with all the projects I had to try and get done during the very small windows between down pours.

Denise it is awesome to see you are riding again and having such a great time at it.

Bloo...that must be one cute farrier!!!

As for a medal for riding with spiders - I am not really afraid of spiders. Now having said that, if it were flying roaches all freaking bets would be off. My big backside wouldn't be ANYWHERE near places with flying roaches. Or if it were mice/rats. OMG I would run over my little granddaughter to get away from them. I am scared stiff of them.

There was a big roach crawling up and down the cedar wood behind the baptistry during a sermon. It would go up one side, around the baptistry, up the other. THEN it started flying back and forth. I couldn't hear what Uncle Ricardo (not really my uncle) was preaching about because I was concentrating on that freaking roach. I was up at the front. I thought if it had landed on me I would lose all religion in church and cuss up a blue streak getting away from it. It flew over to one of the big girders that held up the cathedral ceiling and was crawling up it. Uncle Ricardo's wife, Aunt Virginia, being the smart chick she is, took her shoe and killed it. Aaaaahhhhhhhh...relief. I could relax and enjoy the sermon than!
