Dawn, I LOVE your tag. The car too!

We rode a little 1.5 mile ride today. It is cold! It was a beautiful, peaceful ride and the horses were perfect.

I am looking forward to March when we will have access to our main trails. We can't get to them right now because we have our old retired horses in a winter pasture that the trail goes through. Once we have grass here, I can move the old dudes back home and open up the gates and gaps that we like to ride through.

6.2 mile total.

glad you got out Celeste. It isn't cold here right now. Tee shirt weather right now so we will enjoy it while we can. It is still mushy wet here. It will be late spring before it dries up and that is if it doesn't rain much in the spring.

Hay Dawn, nice ride and LOVE the tag! I'm not sure it cam pull the trailer though!
I couldn't ride today, got to hang out with Becca in the ER,
Her hand and the concrete met each other too quickly!
No break thankfully, just a bruise.

I plan to take Drambuie to a friends place tomorrow. He has a sand arena and I want. To see how Drambuie goes on soft ground. First though I have a plummer friend coming to fix a water leak. Hopefully I'll have a dime left afterwards

Broken plumbing will cost more than a broken hand.........
I am glad that it wasn't broken.

so glad it wasn't broke. Ugh...that hurt!!!

We are riding at noon tomorrow. I have to go get my cousin - her big F350's front calipher (think that is what it is) froze up and her truck is in the shop so I will be hauling to her house first. Woo Hoo. We are going out to the back for the first time in a 2 months. Can'a wait.

Sad news today. I seriously cannot catch a break. Drifter appears to have strained his gaskin due to the massive amounts of mud in the pasture due to all this rain.

No riding for a week. I have the WORST injury luck with this guy. I feel like maybe this was my fault though. I think God might be trying to get me to take it easy since I just got over pneumonia. Well now I am forced to listen so I will relax for the next week and so will Drifter.

Here is my handsome boy sharing a salt lick today with his best bud :) (excuse the awkward angle. He was standing slightly down hill while they were eating it ha ha)
As you can see we have lost all of the hay pounds he gained while on stall rest for his stifle and he is starting to muscle back up. Extremely proud of him. Can't wait to get back on those trails though!

Just thought I'd show y'all my BM's little Halflinger. She has two...heck if my balance doesn't get better I may have to swap her for a Halfinger. Her boys drive and ride but are more "drive". They are precious!!

This is Mike...Lee Ann was giving him a little haircut - his hair was so long!!! He still had a longer coat left than my two geldings when she was through so he is good to go. I told Lee Ann if I fell off of Mike I wouldn't have far to go!2013-01-24 15.21.29.jpg

Si.ne left for her home today and Bloo was bummin that is buddy was gone so we lead lined my niece on a trail. We went through the neighborhood and the horse 'experts' told me how 'cruelly confined' he was in his rope halter and hackamore. I love when non-horse owners know more about horses than I do.

On another note, I'm done with all this cold weather. The warmest it's been around here in the past week is 22 with a windchill keeping it in the negatives. Bloo's grain is (stupidly) kept in a metal bin coated with molasses so I've been fighting with that and it's been cold enough to freeze his 'fat sauce' so I've had to bring vegetable oil from home to keep him where I want him. Seriously whoever invented winter should be shot at. If I had my truck we'd be half way to Arkansas by now...maybe Texas if there weren't so many venomous creatures there. We could get some pretty good miles down there.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.
