    Beautiful foal pics and I'm sure she will live up to the name with honor.

    Everyone has been really quiet on here lately

    I hope you all have had some nice fall weather for riding. Selena & I leave for Woodstock tomorrow for our first LD at the GMHA 50 & 30 on Saturday. I am SO nervous, but excited. This is the ride we have been planning and waiting on all summer and I'm just hoping for a completion with a happy, forward horse. Wish us luck...I've got thousands of butterflies in my stomach and I've already tapped into the pint of Ben & Jerry's to ease my nervousness!

    EL6, I can't wait for a complete report on how the ride goes! You both will be fantastic. I have heard such nice things about that event but never managed to get up there for it. I expect lots of pics!!


    Things have been quiet around here in terms of riding. Dream is still in jail (recheck is about 2 weeks). Both boys are resting after their last ride, with the next ride coming up next weekend for Sultan. DH and I will be going down to VA for the Fort Valley ride. I will be riding a friend's youngster (Gamer's half sister!) in the 50 on Friday and then a friend's gelding as company for DH and Sultan in Saturday's 30. We need a completion for Sultan to get his Old Dominion Triple Crown.

    I have been working with Gamer as time allows. My work schedule makes being home during daylight hours a challenge lately, but I did have a couple hours to play the other day. She is not a fan of putting her feet on/in what she considers suspicious things, so I spent some time working on stepping onto the Very Scary Blanket.



    Next step of course will be the Evil Crinkly Tarp!

    I am taking off this week. I thought I had found a fix to Oreos's back problem of the spot being rubbed. I bought a thin wool blanket to go under the pad and for the 3.1 mile it did well. When we did the 7.1 miles, it had rubbed again. I have really up Oreo's feed this week by feeding 4 mornings in addition to afternoons to get some weight on him. I can already see a difference.

    Horses do love to eat. Mine holds weight on 1.5 lbs of Purina Strategy Healthy Edge twice a day and free choice hay.

    Celeste recommend a bridging pad made by Reinsman for my Miss Lacy and it's working great. My issue wasn't a rub, but swelling.

    It's fall riding time and the weather has cooled down significantly....the horses are energetic...kicking and bucking when I go down to feed in the afternoon....they love this cooler weather.

    DW got thrown again last weekend by the young horse...Jack....way back in on Sylco creek.....she rode out....isn't hurt but sore....Jack jumped a log...then bolted a little...her cinch wasn't tight....the saddle turned sideways, and it was all over but the thud as she hit the ground.... DW has some arthritis in her hands...she rides leaned back and didn't have both hands on the reins. Not good with a young horse....he was out from under her before she had time to react. I think she's really lost confidence in Jack and I can't say I blame her. Jack hasn't been ridden...his last trip out was June 30th as she wanted to take Sunny Boy to the Smokey's....because he's trustworthy.....good thing she did with the Yellow Jackets and all...

    I'm really getting tired of watching her get thown.....one of these times she might not get back on and that scares the heck out of me. She'll be 60 years young in the spring.....not sure how long she'll be able to ride, but it seems her days are getting limited......so I'm staying home this weekend although it's supposed to be a really nice weekend....changing the oil on the F-350 and the Massey 135.....watching the race at Talledega on TV Sunday.....SIGH...

    DW and I rode the bottom part of Sylco creek Saturday and I rode with some friends on the Chestnut ridge trail in the Gee Creek Wilderness area on Sunday. I wouldn't take her Sunday after she got thrown...although she wanted to go.....I think that's a good rule....get thrown.....stay home a trip..... 11.3 miles on Saturday, 13.8 miles Sunday. I think that puts me around 365 miles so far this year.

    Dang - so sorry Mrs. Gunslinger got slung off that bites. Hope she feels better soon.

    Dawn, sounds like you have got your hands full Hope y'all enjoy the weekend.

    Endurance Lover 6 best of luck and hope you have a great ride.

    Kellie and I are supposed to ride Sunday down at that beach. She is going to pick me up and haul out there. Can't wait. I have been under a tremendous amount of stress and I want to spend some time with my Biscuit Man. He always makes me feel better no matter what. We are taking a lunch so we out to have several hours of riding. It is pouring down rain right now so the local park is out of the question but it doesn't matter if it has rained cats and dogs at the beach!

    My cousin and I made a trip to Crystal Beach today to ride. OMG gorgeous gorgeous mild weather - sunny blue skies - not too many people on the beach. I haven't rode in 2 weeks but Biscuit was a doll. Had to laugh at him - I think he thought he was trick or treating for Halloween. He would just walk right up to folks with a bucket and ask for a treat. He got potato chips, pretzels, tortilla's (Elan didn't care for the tortilla - they were kinda like getting freaking licorice in your treat bag - I hate licorice) and a hand full of trail mix which he thought was wonderful. He let other people pet him and kiss him up if they didn't have a treat. Kellie and I said he had no shame in asking for a treat.

    It is nice to see that this horse is so trusting now. I have had him in my possession 3 years on Tuesday. He would have never just walked up to someone before. He was just too funny today. We rode almost exactly 8 miles. We walked on a little sandbar most of the way and then had lunch when we were through. Fantastic day and hope to do it again soon.
