    Bad Drifter! Is that how he got his name?? Drifting away from home???

    I'm glad to hear he's ok, or going to be ok. Horses sure know how to get themselves into trouble! They are like little kids, getting into everything. Jeez.

    What you need is another horse, then another, then another, etc. Surely one of them will be sane & sound! Just keep trying

    My gosh, DS!!! He is certainly challenging you!!!

    I have ridden a LOT over the past few days. I MUST find a GPS so I can know how far I DON'T go, LOL!!!

    DH had to cut a new trail up our hill, because it is getting close to hunting season, and our next door neighbors put up Private Property signs, um...even though the trail THEY drive on zig zags over the property line. They have a deer stand at the top of the hill. It is on their side, but not by much. I don't know HOW they are going to see a deer with us riding up there ALL the time,lol. Guess I need to start riding earlier in the morning....not to be spiteful, or anything.....

    Most deer hunters here hunt early in the morning and late in the evening. I try to ride between 11:00 and 3:00 and I usually miss the hunting crowd.

    I'm interested in finding software for creating maps of horseback riding trails that include distance and even elevation. This would be very useful in creating posts for kids on Horse Lover's Math! Has anyone used Garmin's BaseCamp?

    Make sure you get plenty of nice, loud bells on your horse's tack too.. wouldn't want a deer to jump up and startle your horse. Much better to scare them away well before you arrive.

    Dastacy, welcome to our thread. I have used Base Camp before but I mostly use EveryTrail. It does show elevations.

    Dawn, so sorry about Dreams and will be praying for her complete recovery. It is amazing what horses can do to hurt themselves and yet heal from it. My friends Arabian mare that I think Dreams looks so much like really hurt herself early this year. She spraddle split her back legs and couldn't get up for more than 45 minutes. She really hurt herself pretty dang badly but weekend before last Lee Ann ran a 30 mile race on her and she did just fine aside from slicing her heel bulb.

    Drifting Shadow glad he wasn't hurt worse. He sounds like a little pill for sure.

    I was able to ride yesterday and today. Biscuit has just been a little angel which has been a blessing to me.

    I have been back and forth everyday to Houston. I went yesterday after riding. I didn't go today though. Going in the morning at 5:30 AM to see Mom and her doctors and Barry has an appointment at 10:00 with a doctor. It has been confirmed that my mother has pancreatic cancer. She has been having hallucinations and yet at times was lucid. She had a tube in her stomach to remove bile and she had a Pic line and a intravenous feeding tube. I hate seeing my darling mother in this condition. She did get the tube out of her nose the other day and she was thrilled. I spent the night in her room with her Monday night and she got out of bed at 7:00 Tuesday and slid down onto the floor. I fell asleep for just a second and so did the sitter. OMG I nearly had a cow. I lifted her off the floor and onto the bed. She is being moved to a rehab facility for a few weeks to get her stable to be able to have chemo if she chooses. My uncle is being moved to the same facility. It has been a rough go for all of us.

    I really appreciate the thoughts and prayers for my family. It is so nice to have my fellow trail riders care about what is going on in my life.

    Biscuit and Sarge can make me feel so much better just by running to me when I call them from the gate at night after coming in late from Houston. Nothing like 2000 lbs of horseflesh galloping towards you! I generally stop to see them either when I am leaving for or returning from Houston.

    I enjoyed keeping up with everyone's adventures. I will be keeping all of y'all and your horses in my thoughts and prayers. Happy Trails y'all.

    So sorry to hear about your Momma Denise, I will keep her in my prayers. Horses are a gift from God, they soothe the soul. Take care of yourself too, your family sure needs you.

    I am working 5 twelve hr shifts this week, so I am not able to ride for a while. I did get some new pads, a skito, a barefoot, and a toklat trail pad with pockets (for the treed saddle). Can't wait to try them all out!!

    I use Garmin Connect online. That shows distance, speed, elevation and a map of the route (this like).

    Denise, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom, but thoughts and prayers are with her and everyone else having troubles. Hopefully things will improve as quickly as they declined!

    Thanks everyone. Sitting at her bedside and she is sleeping.

    Anita Ann, my hat is off to you nurses. Mom has had some wonderful nurses. Sounds like your shopping spree was fun. I will have to purchase a new purple castle bag. A nasty mouse got into my track closet. I had left a trail bar in there from last October!! I never see mice out there!!. Any whooo....ate a hole in my bag, chewed on my pad inserts for my Equipidic pad. Pooped every where. I how the cat ate him
