    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!
    Maybe Kelly will give her a free lease on the mare so your darling great neice can have her "own" horse!

    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.
    Yea!! So happy to hear you are getting better and get to TROT!!

    So, finally got out to ride yesterday after a week of rain then working every nice day(!!) and Drambuie was not quite right. I don't know if it is from the fall in the hole which is the last time I was able to ride him or if something else is going on. He was tripping almost constantly when walking, and nearly went down twice!

    Trotting he was better and I got him up to a 9.2 mph trot without difficulty, but he wouldn't keep it up downhill. He would slow to a really careful walk downhill. Couple of times I had to jerk him up by the reins to keep him from falling while walking! Jeez.

    I just stayed in the pasture riding him, which is good considering, but I am very, very worried about him. Only rode for 1.78 miles before giving up.

    I'm going to give him another week off, and if he is not better, will carry him to the top lameness vet at Coosa Valley in Pell City.

    So glad you all are getting to ride! Keep the pics coming!!

    Ps - My schedule is fixed and I have every-other weekend off again!! Yippee!!

    Thanks for the concern Celeste :)

    It was a pretty dumb decision on my part but thankfully I haven't had to pay for it yet. I just couldn't stay out of the sun on top of having major cabin fever. Just taking it easy for the rest of the day today. I have to teach one riding lesson but that is all.

    Oh no! I am sorry! I know how that feels. How long ago was the fall that he took?

    It is the same here - only 41 degrees right now and bitter wind...I am sticking inside today!

    It will be two weeks on Wednesday. We were trotting along in a working trot at 8.6 mph and I was just asking for more speed when suddenly he went straight down and jerked straight back up. He stopped immediately, which was good. I didn't see any heat or swelling that day or the next, and he didn't seem lame, but it could have done some damage I couldn't see. It rained all last week so I haven't been able to ride.

    I am just feeling very down about this.

    Maybe he strained/pulled a muscle that is not noticeable without a rider, but as soon as weight gets put on him you can tell? If that's it then only time will tell. I am sorry. I know how upsetting that can be. Hope he heals soon!
