    Well, I haven't been able to post anything for a while after my mare passed away, and because I couldn't enjoy a good trail ride I didn't even check up on the thread... I was have been too jealous! But looky what I got!


    On the 5th of July, I was able to purchase my new horse Cowboy! He is a 16 year old QH/Standard cross (Or so I am guessing...) This was actually the very first horse I bought without any help from my dad! So he is really all mine, 100%. :)

    But, we have gone for one ride since I got him, and have been on a couple walks down the road. He is the perfect gentleman, except for when he likes to step on my feet when we are walking. Lol.

    But, expect many more updates on mine and Cowboy's rides! :)

    Congrats RiverBelle on the new horse. It's always exciting to buy them on your own.

    Bloo's crack got worse so he's booted for the time being. It's been humid and threatening to rain for days but hasn't so it's been ground work and manners for Pretty Boy.
    We've having our semi annual sheath cleaning barbecue today. My BO has a sick sense of humor and grills hot dogs and potatoes while we clean sheaths. Then we leave on Saturday for a camping trip. I'm going to use my cousins' farrier to sand down the crack some more than putty it and keep Bloo booted. Hopefully that will keep him sound for the trip. I'm hoping for another 100-200 miles but it's supposed to rain so there might not be much riding beyond out pack in and out.

    Did not get to ride at all on my 4 day weekend for 4th of July because of all the rain. It rained all 4 days all day and hard! It has rained on and off all week and guess what? Rain is in the forecast for this weekend. Boy am I going to be a ball of joy this weekend if I don't get to get out and ride my horses. Bella has horrible rain rot. Started putting MTG on it, so it should start clearing up. I did get some awesome pictures of all the ponies this week after work when it was not raining. And boy can Dare trot! The stride length he has is crazy. I love it! I like to trot more than canter, so I love a horse that can trot.

    This was the horses and me playing chase. This is the first time I have played chase with them since Dare came, so at first he is like, "Why is the crazy lady chasing us!?" Lol. But then he chilled out after he realized the other horses were playing with me. Now we have 48 acres, so they could get away from me if they wanted but they stay near me. They will run circles around me and stop, look at me and snort and wait for me to chase them again. Dare was really getting into it!

    Congrats RiverBelle! You picked a nice looking Cowboy, many happy trails to you!

    Bloo, what a party, so sorry I missed it Nothing better than getting together with friends to clean some sheaths...and eat hotdogs

    Lenya, we are suffering through daily rain too. Every day I am off, rain. The horses are a soggy mess. But I worry there will be no hay with all this rain. It has to stop for a while so hay can be cut. And so we can all ride! Jeez.

    I know! Everything is flooding here in the panhandle of FL. And I guess I missed Bloo's picture? I can't see it.

    The rain is getting ridiculous here in the Florida panhandle. I had to move Trusty up to the other barn where it is a little more level ground and dryer. His stall at our barn is 4" deep in water and muck after this last rain. My barn is on a slant and a lot of wash comes off the other pasture, down the hall and on both sides. His stall in our barn was the last one and is now too nasty for him. There are 2 stalls at the other barn so I can easily rotate him between them to keep the stalls managed easier.

    I'm ready for him to be healed enough to go back out with the others since he has gotten bad at cribbing again with being stuck in the stall. Albeit, it is mainly while eating that he does it. I don't see him doing it any other time. I guess it's like having a smoke after a meal.. Least that was how I was when I smoked.

    It didn't rain today yet! It is only 82 degrees with 62% humidity. We rode for 2.8 miles. It was extremely wet, and the mud sucked a shoe off of each of the horses. I guess I would have been better off staying home. Dang it. I'll call the farrier when I finish feeding all the animals.

    Yeah, no rain today so here I am in Atlanta at six flags with the kids instead of riding. Grrr. Roady I have the same problem with stalls, they are all flooded from the rain coming down the hill. I wasn't going to admit to having dirty stalls, but ithey r a mess. I feel bad cause the horses are normally so neat, putting their poo in one corner, well except for messy Drambruie.

    None of mine are accustomed to being in the stall long term and apparently have no clue how to pick a spot to keep all the nasty out of their way.

    Trusty is bad about pulling hay out the net and letting it drop to the floor. It is still clean where it drops at, but he refuses to eat it once it hits the ground. Now it doesn't bother him to eat hay off the ground at the end of a roll, so I don't know what is twisted in his thinking..

    I tried so hard to keep his stall clean and dry to the point I was going through 6 bags of shavings every week and that was no longer enough with all the rain coming in adding to his wetting. I went through a full 50# bag of lime trying to keep the stall sanitary for Boo and now him.

    I am hoping to get a couple of rolls of left over 3/8" rubber gasket material, we keep here at work, to put down in the stalls to help. Just have to be patient with the small sections until I know they are big enough to reach across the stall.
