Freddy looks just like my dear departed black lab.

Freddy is so handsome & healthy looking, I am sure his family is missing him. Good luck helping him find the way home.

What a darling pony!!! Love his coloring!

Dawn, glad to hear Dreams is better. Hope she is fit in no time.

I did get to ride Saturday with my cousin and a friend. Biscuit gave me some baloney last week. I was going to do a solo ride but when I walked to the pasture instead of driving my RAV down there he looked at me like I was an alien and refused to come in. Ahahahahhh never let it be said horses aren't smart. Biscuit's though bubble said "the only time you walk down here is when we go riding....no Biscuit for you!" He can be a little pill at times so no solo ride for me. Maybe another time.

We moved my mother and my uncle to the same extended care hospital in Houston. I have been back and forth more times than I care to say. Last Monday I drove there, drove home and then turned around and went back. Ugh. Mom has not been doing well. Some days are ok but she is pain. We were hoping she would be able to start eating but that is not happening. I know you generally don't win with pancreatic cancer but we were hoping for a little more time. If she doesn't eat - I don't think that will happen. My sister and I discussed bringing her closer to home if chemo will not be in the picture. Mom wants to go to my sisters house but we will have to see if we can do that and still make her comfortable for the time we have left with her. I will miss her more than I can possibly say - I have been so blessed with a wonderful mother. I am 54 years old and still do not want to contemplate losing her but I do not want to see her suffering either. I am a devout Christian and am asking Jesus for the strength and grace during this time. Riding my horse does give me a little bit of peace - I just haven't been able to spend any time with him unless it is to go on a rare ride.

I appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers. Horse buddies are the best.

Dear Denise, I am very sorry you are going though such a difficult time. Your mother is truely blessed to have such a loving, dedicated daughter. She has been making a lot of difficult decisions and it is so wonderful that you are supporting and upholding her wishes so gracefully. Enjoy every minute that you have, and try not to worry.

It is time for the red hat and purple dress!!

I did check with the vet no microchip and no tags. Oh and I am feeling really stupid today. The dog is female not male. A vet on campus said between 4 and 6 months of age.

So...Miss Freddi?

I bought a horse once really fast, just a ride once and buy at a trade day. We are driving towards home when I check his papers and the word "Stallion" leaps off the page at me. I nearly fainted thinking I had bought a stallion when at the time I had two mares, one gelding and only one pasture...I sweated the whole way home. Fortunately I unloaded a gelding, but ever since I look really careful before I buy!!

I took my "Princess" out for a solo ride. We only did a total of 1.2 miles. I’m not sure if I did her good or harm. There was a horse eating fallen tree and I never could get her to go by it. We continued our ride another way. Psycho………..
Total 82.2
