I agree with the others...do them all but straight is the one I would pick first...not sure why, but sure wish I was able to ride it with y'all!!

Celeste, my friend has a Giddy Up step that her brother added longer legs to. I can use it to get on and then if folds up and ties to the saddle. I need to get one myself. I tried using a ditch first but it was too wide.

We call it Horsitosis...and there is no cure but the condition can be managed by frequent equine contact. Highly contagious, usually the individual is infected in childhood and lasts a lifetime. Seems to be more common in females, but no conclusive studies have been found.

She put on her FB page that she loved it and her mom needed to get her a horse! LOL That won't be necessary as Kellie has a mare that will be terrific for her. (her mom couldn't afford the upkeep on a horse!)

Barry doesn't hardly ride Sarge which is a shame. He is a fabulous horse so I may start riding him some this spring to get him back in shape and Whitney could ride Biscuit some. I just don't want him to revert to nose to tail kids horse that he was when I got him! He totally ignored what you wanted unless YOU MADE HIM. LOL he is great with kids though!

Got George out today, despite chilly temps (23 when I left the barn) and snow falling from the sky. Well, really the snow was blowing sideways more than falling, which made for a great facial any time we were facing into the wind. But tomorrow and Wednesday the highs are only supposed to be in the teens, then "semi-significant" snow is coming (afraid to ask what that means in this area ), so I figured I better take advantage of the weather while I could.

Ground is frozen solid, which is somewhat of an improvement over muddy mess, but still isn't much fun to navigate. The snow being gone means the rocks are exposed, so had to take things slow and steady. Horses get shod on Thursday, just in time for the rocks to vanish under the snow again (go figure!).

Dawn, sounds like you better buy some extra warm clothes. Don't freeze up in those far north regions.

We went on a very short ride today. 1.5 miles. It was reasonably warm. We went this direction because there was no traffic and no pitbulls.

Total: 4.7 It's a start anyway!

To celebrate being allowed to bend my knee I went out for a ride. My brace allows me to lock my leg into a bent position so I went out with a friend on his horse while he went out on Si.ne. We got a mile before it started snowing. We saw some deer that completely freaked Si.ne out so we went home after she calmed down. She's going to a new home next month so we're busy bomb proofing her as much as we can.

Year total: 6.3 miles.

Please keep those photos coming!
They are the only thing that is keeping me sand until I can get myself out the the trails.

Dang Dawn...that sounds like a very cold ride chickie. I would have to have some serious layers on.

We are looking forward to riding this weekend. I don't have any cakes to do so I will try to ride Saturday and Sunday. Right now I can still just walk but am hoping the doctor will release me to trotting Wednesday.
