Celeste glad you got out even for a little ride! Greentree - we need to see pictures of the new pup. I love dogs
Dawn - sorry you missed the 100 miler but the pictures you posted were gorgeous!
I was able to get out and ride today. I have been working on 2 wedding cakes/2 groom's cakes and I was whipped and my legs felt like they belonged to an alien. Riding helped. But, when I got Biscuit out of the trailer he looked like he had some cankles going on. Just on his back legs - not the front
Not huge but cankles all the same. Kellie looked at them and said "Doc would say ride him" so we saddled up and took off. About 2 miles from the trailers we could see that his cankles were gone. He stopped several times on the ride like he was hot - he was sweating and his coat is really fuzzying up and it was warm. He kept dropping his equipment but never would urinate but he finally did near the end of the ride which is odd for him. Got back to the trailer and no cankles. We ate satsumas and were visiting for about 30 minutes and I noticed he was very quiet and acting like he was very sleepy. His cankles somewhat returned
I hosed off his legs.
Kellie and I think he may be stocking up from standing there eating on his round bale. He looked like he had a grass belly while saddled but lost that look when I took the saddle off of him.
He didn't want to load up either when the time came. He was just acting a little funny. He immediately pee'd when I unloaded him at the barn.
We did a little bit of trotting and some cantering today - woot. Saw 12 hogs and some funny looking bird we couldn't identify.
I asked Barry to go back to the barn and check on him but he didn't
I am sitting with my mom - she is not doing well and hospice said time is very short. I am hoping Biscuit is ok but will check on him in the morning.
We rode about 7.6 miles today.
