I've only gotten views like that in the airplane, and even then from at least a few feet further above the ground

And a happy turkey day from me, Nova the horse, and Niki & Buddy, the dogs.

DH and I rode 1.4 miles today. He had a little bit of a problem when he was mounting. Abby bolted forward and he ended up barely making the mount. After that she was pretty good. We didn’t start riding until late and the temperature dropped so fast that we decided just to do a little short ride. My horse was good except the occasional head shake of wanting to get the bit and go.

122.9 miles total

My soon to be DIL came and rode with me today. We rode 3.2 miles. The horses were lazy which is a bit unusual. At least I didn’t feel like I was sitting on a scud missile that was ready to explode! I really hope that she stays interested in riding!

Total 126.1 miles

I have not been on a horse in a week!!! We drove down to Jackson, MS to see DMIL. Left Thursday evening, and stayed in Tuscaloosa, then stopped in Cuba, AL to see DH's cousin, then had lunch in Jackson, and came home. We were only gone 30 hours, lol!!

We brought her little poodle home with us, yay. I needed another animal, huh? Like a Hole in the head. But, DMIL is on oxygen now, and so she cannot get up and put the dog out, and it was my DH's decision to get THAT dog at the rescue, so we will care for her. I clipped her, and we bathed her and dried her, so she looks pretty now. I used to groom Standard Poodles, so I have all the equipment.

Half of our square bales got delivered yesterday.....so now I need a job to pay for the other half!! Hay is MUCH cheaper here than Texas, but in Texas I made my own, so it is hard to bite off that chunk of money to pay for hay.

Today we are going to hear a Christmas program by the Cavemen Chorus, LOL!! Guess where??? Mammoth Cave!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

The weather canceled our original weekend plans (we were supposed to go to South Carolina for the last race of the season, a 100), but I still got some saddle time.

Black Friday I stayed as far away from the stores as possible, with Dream and Mia's help:

On Saturday, moseyed around for the rehab ride despite the bitterly cold temps:

Then today, I got Dream out for her mosey (though we were allowed to trot for 5 minutes for the first time!!):

Then I took George out to ride with my SIL and a couple friends.

My DH's family farm in the background:

Not quite the 100 I had hoped for, but nice all the same. I also tried out a new pair of winter riding boots and I was able to feel my feet at the end of the ride!

What kind of boots did you get? I need for my feet not to freeze.

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.

Hugs and prayers, Denise!!

I am glad you got out to ride! Do you think he has a little thrush from standing by the round bale?

Dawn, what a lovely ride!! Sorry you missed the SC ride, though.

I may have killed DH and DS yesterday.....We have GREAT PBS stations here in KY, and there is an outdoor show, similar to Texas Country Reporter. He did a spot on Mammoth Cave trails, and showed the Cedar Sink, which is on a hiking trail, not a horse trail, so I had never been there. On the map, it is a .8 mile long trail. With 4700 steps. Plus the many, many steps to get down into the sink. It was AWESOME!!! DH stayed at the rim, and DS and I ventured down the steps, around the beautiful blue hole at the bottom, up the other side steps, circled around and snuck up on DH from the other side.

It is a HUGE, DEEP spot where the cave collapsed, and so it has shear rock walls, and the underground river runs out of the rock on one side, and back in the rock in a few hundred feet further. The water trickle made little frozen water falls.

THEN, we had to hike down into the cave to listen to the brass quintet, and hike further in to hear the Cavemen Chorus. They were SO much fun!! We do a lot of stuff here in KY in caves, lol! Then, we had to hike back up and out. Ain't no step for a stepper!! Dh and DS, however......

Don't know Greentree. I am about to leave my sister's shortly and go check on my Biscuit Man.

I have been to Mammoth Cave when I was 19 years old. OMG it was fabulous. We went way down into a cavern and the guide asked everyone to be quiet and he dropped a pin. It sounded like he had dropped ball bearings! He lit a single match and it lit up the room like a spot light. I can remember seeing the Angel in a corner, going through Fat Man's Misery, seeing the giant "coffin". I thought it was simply fabulous.

I would love to ride Biscuit in Tennessee...maybe one of these days.
