That is TOO cute, Denise!!! darling children!!

DH gave me a Fitbit, hoping it will track my horseback mileage....we will see! I hope it works...NO buttons to push!

I wore a shifter out on my Ford because it takes me 6 or 7 tries to get hooked up! That deal should come in really handy!! Good work, Barry!!

Merry Christmas, everyone!!

QOS, I like your trailer. I don't think that I have seen one like it. I assume that it is a two horse?

Herosbud,
Yes it is a 2 horse straight load Brenderup. Super easy to hook up, super easy to haul. It is always right behind me with no problems.

We had a lovely Christmas dinner - I put too much salt in the dressing but the texture and taste was right - just got to adjust the salt!!! My kids, grandkids, extra kid, extra grandkid, sister, BIL and all of their kids/grandkids. We had quiet a crew. 3 little girls trying to ride 2 ponies and I am sure my little great niece will have a pink pony before New Years Eve.

Heading out to see my horses with bunches of carrots from Santa.

My dad and I rode out the road and back today. It was a little cool by the time we got out there. (Sorry we are wimps and high 40's is cool.) It is the second time that I have ridden Fiddler. Other than not wanting to go up an embackment because he hit soft dirt at the bottom we did great. I got him to canter for first time too. We did about 2 miles. I forgot to get the GPS out.

Merry Late Christmas Everybody! I hope everyone had a great holiday.

I love those pink ponies! Sooo cute!

My Mom / Gus got a new saddle, headstall and reins for Christmas. She loved it and Gus loves his new saddle. I went to the barn and got Gus all suited up and put a big green bow on him. My brother drove her out and he was standing in the barn cute as can be. She was so surprised!


We went on a ride on Christmas Eve together and while Roux was a perfect (a small miracle) Gus was a butthead... ugh! So much for the relaxing ride. He kept trying to get away with turning around and then wanted to trot the whole way back my mom was so tired at the end of it. He wasn't being dangerous but my mom has only been riding since June and so she was really nervous about his behavior.

So... poor Gus got an "attitude adjustment" ride with me today! He tried to turn around once at the very beginning threw a fit and then gave me two more half-hearted attempts at his mischief and then we had a really good ride with no shenanigans. Hopefully I will ride him again like that soon and then get my mom out the next day for a nice ride. He is such a nice horse but I have been working so much on getting Roux up to speed I haven't been riding Gus which really showed.

Christmas Eve Ride: 7.20 miles + Today's Ride with Gus: 10.09
Grand Total = 122.85 miles


Obligatory pictures:

Gus showing off his new Biothane Tack!


Turn around Point for today's Ride (Notice the lack of crazy hair day with Gus as compared to Roux's ear shots):

I got a new rope for Christmas so I have been practicing!


Lastly me and the boys:

Now we're seeing spots! Winsome Warrior - 4.5yr Appy (Est. 2016)

5 years ago when I sold my trailer. The fellow that bought backed up under using his back up camera. He had airshocks, so he pumped up the air bags and it lifted the truck up so the ball picked up the trailer. I was impressed.

So when I ordered my 2011 truck, I got the built in back up camera that is in the tailgate and displays on the navigation screen in the dash. It is great for hooking up bumper pull trailers. I can back straight up to the trailer and stop when the ball is under the hitch. I just need to save up some money and install a second camera in the bed to see the Gooseneck ball for when I hook up the horse trailer.

Got Dream out for a rehab ride today and had some company! My SIL and another friend came for a mosey. The weather was crazy warm (45!!), which felt wonderful but made for horrible footing. The last of the snow melted but the ground is still mostly frozen, making for a slippery layer of mud. Only place we could even jog was the paved road. But the sun felt wonderful.

There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Honey Darling Precious hooked up the back up camera today. Bless his heart, he had opened it before going outside to look at the RAV4. The license plate is to the left - it is not in the center of the back. He had to go get heavy duty velcro to put it in the middle. I told him to just take it back but he said it was an electronic and they wouldn't take it back! Oh well.

I tried backing it up a few times and was still a little off - he is used to backing up with the camera so he was dead on. He has the back up camera on his Tundra! It will just take me a few times to get used to it. Going riding tomorrow (fingers crossed that NOTHING gets in my way).

Dawn, glad you got out. That slick stuff would not be fun to deal with!
