WOW Painted, that is quite a ride! Sounds like you gave those boys an experience they'll remember for a long time! That's way too cold for my blood! How long did it take you to go 13 miles in a white out?

Can I use that picture on my Christmas cards next year? I think it is a wonderful

Ok so looks like I might not be riding for awhile since it is flooding, and I almost couldn't even leave work this afternoon.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

It took 3 hours, and yes you may if you want to use it.

Saddling up.



An interesting part of the ride was the sound. As the horses moved their feet thru the crusted snow, Chunks would break out and bounce off. It would then begin sliding across the icy crust of the snow and you would have sound kinda like marbles on a glass table as it skiterd and slid down the hill until it stopped where a bunch of grass protruded thru the snow.

That is a good time in those conditions. The horses look very fit! Nice rig too.

Glad I found this post. One of our New Year's Resolutions was to log our miles this year. The weather here in Missouri has been up and down so far. Haven't been able to trailer out yet between that and work schedules. But we have a good camping/riding season planned. Will post pics as we go!

Though the dam has overflowed and just about the whole paddock is ankle deep water my horses are ok.

Some of the ones at work are ok but the ones in the lower paddock had to be brought up so they wouldn't be cut off and washed away with the floodwaters. I don't think most people will be able to get to work tomorrow so I hope the stabled horses will be alright and the few horses still in the lower paddocks.

I rode yesterday but not a trail ride so I have no new miles to log. It was the equestrian practice of SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism).
