    We have a ride in January (Gator Run) which I will take Bella to that one because 3that weeks later is the ride we put on ( Camp Osborn Boy Scout Pow Wow) and I want to ride Dare there and 3 weeks is just not enough recovery for a newbie like Dare. Planning on doing the 100 at FITS with Bella this year. We will see how that works out but mainly I am going to concentrate on Dare this season.

    What about you?

    It is hard to believe that this is the first time I have been out on a trail this month. Between having to work all weekend, rain storms, and DD having issues, horses have taken a back seat to other things in life. DH and I rode for 2.0 miles. I wish we had started early enough to get in a longer ride, but it was nice to get out for a few minutes. The horses were pretty good. They were a bit jiggy on the way back; most likely it was because they haven’t been ridden and we didn’t ride them long enough to even get them warmed up good. It doesn't look like we will have a high mileage year this time.

    I have conceded to Celeste running away from me with the mileage. I am hoping to change horse trailers early on in the year and when the Dually gets back up and running I will be hauling out to the trails every chance I get. I don't have the ability to ride around the neighborhood anymore so it will all be hauling out for trails now.

    Seems funny that while I was out in the country I had places to ride, but the drive home took so long that it wasted too much of the time before mucking, feeding and cleaning to have time to ride. Now I get home within 15 minutes, but can't hope on and ride and it is dark when I get home. Lol

    Rick, you could probably enjoy having an arena to work with the horses at home between trail rides. For that matter, you could put lights in it. Then you could easily ride after dark. That will make summer riding much nicer since it doesn't cool off until late. Then when you hit the trails, your horses will be much better behaved.

    True. After I clear the property of the undergrowth and get the permanent fencing done then I can work on a round pen. There is a stable not far from the house that has a couple of arenas if push came to shove. I could haul them over there and rent by the hour, I guess. There is enough area around the property to ride enough to keep the edge off of them and the times I have gone so long between rides hasn't made them any worse to ride that I can tell.

    I got my Brenderup back yesterday - ugh...it actually cost $1,500 It looks fantastic though.

    They did put the stuff they put in bed liners, Rhino, on the sides before putting the frame back on then sealed it with silicone. I was pretty disappointed in the fact that just 4.5 years this had a rot problem that cost me a freaking fortune. But I would rather repair this and have it look just like it did before than have my horse stick his hoof through it or have it look different than it did before.

    I was surprised they had it done so soon because of the holidays I was not expecting it back until New Year's Eve. It is now sitting on my driveway ready to ride tomorrow.

    DH and I need to sit down and figure out what rides we want to do, and who will be riding whom. Def want to get up to Maine for Tom's 5 day ride, as I have heard fantastic things about it. We don't have very many multi-day rides in the NE, and the few that we do are 2 days at the most, so 5 will be a whole diff experience! There are also rumors of a couple new 100s in the region.. so we shall see.

    Also plan to get Gamer going.. likely starting in CTRs, but will see how things go. Youngsters often have their own timetable!

    5 day ride sounds like a blast...in my dreams!!!

    I loaded Biscuit for a ride yesterday and hauled to the house to pick up my jacket I had left. It started sprinkling and my cousin said it was raining and her house and said she didn't care to ride in the rain. I hauled Biscuit back to the barn and turned him out.

    It didn't rain at my house for the rest of the day but she said it rained all morning at her house which is near the park. Dang...I can't win for losing.

    I took the Brenderup to be cleaned today - OMG it hasn't looked this good since I bought it!

    That is a nice looking float.
    Glad you are able to have it available sooner than you thought. I pulled the plywood out of the dressing room in the one I traded a 4 wheeler for to find it will need some attention once I'm done clearing the property. I have left over sheet metal from the last float I did for a co-worker and will use it to redo the dressing room floor. Then will see what it will take to replace the floor in the tack box under the manger. I'm going to put it up for sale. I'm going to look for a 4 horse slant load to replace it with.


    Merry Christmas to all of you.


    Denise, will you be starting the Logging 2014 miles-How far did you go? Thread beginning of next month or does this one carry over?
