So glad to hear you are feeling better Jannette, walking good may take some time with a torn tendon. That has to be horribly painful. A freak accident for sure! It is risky taking greenies out on the trails.

So it was a beautiful day today, warm, sunny and breezy. Perfect fall weather especially riding!! I took Chivas out for a quick ride and had a lot of fun. That Torsion is so comfortab!! I hope Chivas likes it as well as I do. Anyway, we rode a bit over 2 miles before he got sweaty and itchy so I let him quit and I scrubbed his back off.
I hope everyone has this beautiful weather to ride in!!!

I have owned Biscuit for 3 years today. Here is some pictures of when I first rode him, first loaded him and now.

first time I rode biscuit.jpg

This picture was taken in mid October of 2010 up at Ebenezer Park. I rode him twice that weekend and decided I liked him enough to try him. His former owner said I could keep him as long as I wanted before buying him.

This is the following Friday evening teaching him to load up the ramp. My cousin Kellie's hubby Randy was helping us. We were enticing him with Animal Crackers. We gave him a bath at their house because he was filthy.

Trick or Treat Ready to go.jpg

This was 2 weeks ago ready to go to the beach - what a difference in my boy!!! He has made a great trail horse - not perfect by any means but he is perfect for me. Love my little yeller horse. I went to the barn late this evening to hug him and Sarge up and give them treats. Supposed to ride tomorrow - ugh...we got a huge amount of rain yesterday along with tornadoes in a town about 15 miles away. Lots of local flooding but nothing but blue skies today.

Happy Birthday Biscuit!! He looks pitiful in that first picture, and now after three years of your TLC he is happy & healthy and oh so handsome!

Poor fellow - we kept him in the covered arena for the first week with a basket of free choice hay. I think he fell madly in love with Lee Ann, the barn manager. She made sure his basket was constantly filled and omg he just kept eating and eating.

Several people that had rode him before had declared him ugly and lazy. Poor boy was just hungry and under nourished. One of those girls couldn't believe he was the same horse she said she didn't want to ride because of him being ugly and a dead head!

My boy is still pretty eager to eat - he hasn't forgot that not too long again he didn't know where his next meal was coming from!

What?? Someone called him ugly & lazy?? Grrrrrrrrr. He was never ugly or lazy, I would believe no energy, but who could ever call him ugly? I hope you set those pea-brains straight...

LOL Naaaa....they were the ones now telling me how pretty he is. Bisc didn't have shine to his hair for almost a year and his coat was so thick the first winter because he had no body fat at all. He looked like a polar bear.

His sire is actually a champion halter horse and many of his siblings are in the show ring racking up points. Bisc has a small roach back so he wouldn't've been a halter winner but he comes from really good stock and now his bloodlines show. So glad I bought him. He still can't lope steady but we will work on that...so he isn't perfect but not many horses are!
