Gosh, it took me a few pages to catch up!! Someone always "needs me" about the time I really get down to this thread!

Denise, I am praying for your family!

DS, great idea to proceed like nothing happened, "living well is the best revenge"!!!

We are having the same odd behavior here...I saddled the gelding instead of driving him, and he was horrid! I had to get off and lunge, then tried again, went back and got a crop, by then he and I were BOTH panting, but I got him away from the barn, and we had a nice ride on the trails, then a bit of arena work. Guess he has not been out by himself in a while, and he forgot who was riding him....

I got my old Paint back from my friends, and have been really pampering him. He was covered in a fungus, his feet were BAAADDDD, so he got bloodwork, a pedicure, and he gets an iodine bath everyday. His bloodwork was normal, so I Panacur purged him. He looks way better to me. He has been home one week today.

Take care everyone!

I didn't get to ride today but did go out to the see the boys. It was raining around the ranch so I came through a downpour. Got to their pasture and it was just barely sprinkling. The windshield wipers were on. The horses came around the little corral fence and I could see that Sarge was looking intensely at something and on high alert. I was talking to him and he was not even giving me the time of day. LOL Hubby got out and said it is the windshield wipers he is looking at! Right then Sarge whirled and took off like his butt was on fire. Biscuit followed him and they ran around the pasture snorting. Hahahah He finally came in and Barry turned the wipers on again and then he whirled and took off again - blowing like he was scaring something. He came in later and took a treat from Barry but I had to laugh at them. They are so funny. Biscuit couldn't have cared less about the windshield wipers but I think he enjoyed the thundering around the pasture!!

Well, Trusty and Doc got a little bit of ride in yesterday, just not by me. When we got home from church me and my 2 middle daughters went out to the barn to care for the horses. Alicia bathed them while Misty helped hold a couple of the others while I trimmed their front hooves. Afterwards we left them drying off in their stalls while we went back to the house to cool off and change clothes.

We then went back a little later and saddled Doc to ride the little kids around the pasture. Then saddled Trusty and led them around on him. Taking turns with each yougun. When the two grandsons weren't riding they were contempt to help lead the horse around.

Forgive my attire as it is a swamp to get out to this dry area so I decided to wear my old pull up work boots. Lol

What's wrong with your attire? Doesn't everybody wear boots and shorts?

I have not been on here in a while. It's been so busy at work I have not had a chance and the last thing I want to do on the weekends is fire up the internet! LOL. I hope everyone is doing good!

I just had to tell everyone that knows about the struggle I have had with Dare, that yesterday when I mounted he stood still and then walked off and stopped to eat grass! I was so proud of him! I never thought I would see the day I did not have to count to 3,4 or 5 times before I got the guts to swing up in the saddle, but that day came! He is still nervous but he is learning that I am not going to hurt him. I actually don't shake anymore and I don't get a sick feeling in my tummy when I think about getting on. Haha! Oh and thanks to everyone that gave me advise or just gave me encouraging words.

Here is a pic of him after our 11 mile training ride yesterday.

That is an amazing capture. What camera are you using or is it the setting you are using? Did you enhance the photo on the pc?

I understand not getting on the pc on the weekends as I usually don't bother with it while I'm at the house. Besides I usually only have about 20 minutes of free time from the time I get home to laying my head on the pillow.

I'm very glad to see you are having great strides with Dare in your trust building. Looks like we will be seeing alot more photos and stories of your adventures with Dare.

Celeste, I usually wear pants out to the horses if I know there is work to do with them. If I'm just going to feed and doctor Trusty then I'll throw on shorts and water boots in our weather. Otherwise I would be wearing my lace up work boots out there with my shorts when the path is dry since they look more like hiking boots.

Roady: It is just a Kodak digital camera. I didn't do anything to the picture either. And to top it off my camera is 4 or 5 years old! Haha. And still going strong.

Anita: Thank you! I am so happy he is coming out of his "shell". He really is a good boy.

LeynaProof, I am so glad you had a breakthrough with Dare!! So funny, because I was going to post about his twin sister!!!

My diamond in the rough is turning into a diamond! I KNOW I need to knock on wood..... Today, after 3 or 4 weeks, I put the saddle on to lunge her. The little girl from across the street was here, and decided it was time to move the tarps around. Lucy was giving her a VERY wide berth, so I took that a training opportunity. When I walked on the tarp, so did she. No trembling, nothing. If I was doing it, it was OK. We chased the tarp while she drug it to the other side of the arena, then walked right over. Then backed over. Then over the blue one. Then I walked over the little jump, and she came right along, so I lunged her over a couple of those. This mare has a PRETTY jump, so I am going to ride her tomorrow, and hopefully she will do a couple of poles for cavaletti (I don't have any "regulation" stuff any more--I never thought I would train a jumping horse again)....Keep your fingers crossed for me, please!!

Rode the ancient Paint horse today, too, down the road about 2/3 mile and back, no lameness!!! Yay, he seems to be feeling SO much better....it's a mother's love, you know!!
