I got in about 5 more miles today! That puts me at about 20. I'm way behind others at this point but the weather is starting to cooperate finally!

This is Chopin, my Tennessee Walker, from today.

One of my friends endurance horses has this. For a long time she thought the issue was saddle fit, but after a good year of playing the saddle game (including having several professional fitters out), she did X-rays and got this diagnosis. However, she has since rehabbed him and he was in his first endurance ride earlier this month!! When your boy is ready to get back to work, I would be happy to talk to her about her rehab process.

Meanwhile, lots of prayers and good vibes for fast and complete recovery from the tendon issue!

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

Thanks Dawn, i am trying to be more hopeful. I really thought he would be a good LD horse, maybe 50 miler, but, well, I don't know...

I really appreciate everyone's concern & prayers.

We will get through this. I am considering turning out Drambuie with Dreamer the older horse during the day while leaving Sassy & Chivas the two more energetic ones inside during the day and turning them out at night.

Basically doing the turnout in shifts to hopefully avoid pasture antics around Drambuie to allow his tendon to heal up. I can't do anything about the fact that my pasture is on the side of a hill with no real level spots. I think Drambuie would go loopy if he had to stay in all the time, and cause more problems.

Dawn, that is encouraging news for AnitaAnn. Hopefully Drambuie will be able to be rehabbed like your friends horse. We will keep praying for him.

NeighAngel - your Walker is gorgeous! What part of NC are you in? I'm in the Piedmont/Triad area, near Burlington.

Wings and I took a short ride yesterday. We didn't go very far and weren't out that long as it was getting dark fast. We stopped by an abandoned cabin almost directly across the street, but Wings was antsy so we didn't stick around. Although he is older than Thunder, Wings is just as energetic! He also has a tendency to be "sillier" at times. *shakes head* Still, he is quite fun to ride!







2013 MILES
Thunder: 56.8 miles
Wings: 28.4 miles

I just haven't been able to face this cold weather. I wish it were spring.

Going riding in the morning and I can't wait! OMG it was pretty dang breezy and cold this morning. I delivered a wedding cake on the beach at 9:15 and OMG it was freaking chilly this morning with a pretty stiff breeze. The wedding was outside and the sister in law said the bride was not fond of cold weather. Ugh...she chose the wrong day!! Clear blue skies but breezy and cold. Spent the day in Galveston..the land behind the seagull and pelican is on Boliver Peninsula where we ride! It would have been a little cold to ride this morning on the beach! We rode the ferry and it was gorgeous!

I picked the coldest day of the year to go and ride my horse. I picked up Amy and her horse Pudding and we meet Becca and her horse Wedgie and went to a new place for us called Mingo Trails. We had the place to ourselves since we were the stupidest people in the area. (Well there were a bunch of people going to a horse show in Byron, so maybe not.) We were dressed to the hilt (keeping in mind that we are weak Georgians so it was 43 degrees). It was quite the adventure. Especially for my frind Amy. First she got kicked by Becca's horse Wedgie. Wedgie nailed Amy in her foot. She hasn't gotten it x-rayed yet, but probably broken. Keeping with the tough ridin girls, we kept riding. Then Amy's horse Puddin layed down on her. So with her injured foot, she had to hobbled off. Pudding got up and shook. We think his girth was too tight. After figuring out how to remount, we kept riding. We finally turned for the trailer when we thought the temperature dropping.

We rode 6 miles. We are hoping to ride again next Sunday, then I am doing an ACTHA ride on the 15th.

Total for the year is 20.5 miles.

On a side note, I am fascinated by the ability of our trail horses. None of the three horse had ever been to this place before, we get them out of the trailer, saddle them up and head out. They are just not fazed by this at all. Well Puddin is convince there is a murderous tree stump out there and it just might be the next one that we see. But all he does and gives it the evil eye as he passes. Poor Puddin had to go past a lot of stumps at one point of the trail. Of course that said, if I took Oreo to an arena with people sitting in the stands and flashes going off. I could start looking for him in the rafters somewhere.
