I am going Saturday Anita Ann. My cakes are baked, the gumpaste flowers are made, the cakes are all iced. Groom's cake is impressed and ready to have borders put on, brides cake waiting for fondant. Woot!!! Delivering wedding cakes EARLY Saturday so we can hit the trails!

If it warms up a little I might try to go this weekend. It is really muddy, so that will limit where I can go.

I'm sitting in the doc office with my youngest...not sick, she just needs some med refills.
Anyway, I slept too long yesterday, so I was up all night, I started rearranging some rooms...I was up all night but the house looks a lot better

Tuesday was my house closing (sale is DONE!!! ), then we drove back home. Wednesday we woke up to 4 inches of snow on the ground and more falling from the sky. It finally stopped right about dark. Yesterday the temps hit the low 40s and it was sunny, turning the snow into a slushy, slippery, scary mess by the time I would have been able to ride. Today it's 25 with 30+ mph wind, so everything is ice and I am way too weenie to ride.

Tomorrow it's supposed to be mid 40s again, so may get out for a slog, depending on the footing..

On a good note, we got Sultan's back measured for his new saddle, so that is in the works at least.

Leyna and Apache (and anybody else currently able to ride), I want to see pictures of your rides so I can live vicariously!!

Well done on the sale of the house Dawn. And Anita Ann - you go girl - rearranging the house is a good thing.

Dawn, the name of the mare I was telling you about is Mi Tiye. She is owned by a lady names Mays and was formerly owned and bred by the McFaddins. Can you look her up with just her name? The barn manager said Mr. McF would know all of the bloodlines (she goes back to the original 5 Arabian lines or something like that) I know nothing of Arabian bloodlines!

She is just a cutie. I kissed her up two days ago again. Lovely mare!

424034_10152415492920058_837717747_n.jpgWe got a ton of snow down here in Mississippi yesterday! Life pretty much stopped since we are not used to it down here ha ha. Classes were canceled. It warmed up fast however and pretty much all of it was melted by 2 pm. Felt kind of crummy yesterday but figured it was just a cold. Hauled with a friend to our local horsepark to ride in the arena. It went well but really over did it I think. Woke up this morning feeling worse so I went to our local health center on campus. I have pneumonia :(

No riding for at least a week they said. I am on antibiotics so hoping it clears up fast. It was diagnosed as "walking" pneumonia so hopefully we caught it early enough for it to not get too bad. Also got blood drawn for a mono test and am waiting on those results. Of course the sun is out for the first time in 2 weeks the day I get sick. And it starts raining again the day I am supposed to be able to once again ride. A friend is feeding for me these next few days. I am hoping to be able to be well enough to make it to the barn for at least half an hour or so on Monday. It is Drift's 8th birthday!! :)

Hope all is well with everyone! How much longer until Spring and warm weather?!?! Lol

Here are some pics of the snow and riding at the horsepark yesterday! I let Drifter enjoy the pattern since that was his past career. I had no idea what I was doing, so good thing he had it memorized! Not easy in my english saddle either ha ha ha. Plus, I seemed to get in his way a lot. So don't know if the horsepark counts as trail miles, but I am thankful to be having saddle time! :)

It was cold and muddy and the evil pittbull from the pits of Hades was on the loose today. (We drove up the road and checked.) I wanted to ride, so I did what I really need to do anyway and worked in the arena. Even that was muddy. It didn't take a lot of trotting and cantering to start messing up the ground. I did more walking than anything since it was so wet. We had a nice little ride anyway. My horse is so much more agreeable than she used to be.

Love that Mississippi snow Drifting! Here in Alabama the school were delayed and we didn't even get any snow! LOL I understand totally about the weather not matching you life, its been happening to me lately too, but eventually we'll catch up! Keep the faith!!

Congrats on the sale of the house Dawn! Your life seems to be changing by the hour lately! Whirlwind..What kind of saddle is Sultan getting? Have you been having problems with ice-balls in the horses feet? That used to happen when I lived up north, we had to pull shoes in the winter time & sometimes grease the bottom of their hooves. It was the worst when it was sloppy.

After riding Chivas for 5.5 hrs in that so uncomfortable saddle I am on the hunt for another option...the other one I bought is useless, still doesn't fit him and weighs a ton, but very comfortable for me! I need to sell it, I don't need any more tack decor! LOL

I haven't riden Drambuie since last Wed. He is following me around like a puppy wondering why I haven't been paying him enough attention! Such a sweet horse! Chivas is bonding more with me too, so I am very pleased about that, maybe he just needed a little competition for my affection!

Well finally went for another ride today. It's going to be hard trying to find time to go on rides now that I'm back at work but I plan to make it work.

We had an awesome ride that got us both working very hard. Our ride was 5.34 miles long and involved a lot of trotting.

Sammy: 27.86 miles
Apache: 1.86 miles

A question I would like help with because I can't decide. Which direction should I take (shown in the photos below) right, left or straight ahead?? I can't decide.

Sammy looking a bit ugly pre-ride (I don't know why he sometimes insists on standing like that)

Straight ahead
