    14.9 on Saturday, for 24.8 on the trail for the year! Horse had no trouble at all, and seemed a little miffed that the second leg was only 2 miles. I entered an LD in April! I can't wait!

    Gunslinger, I so wanted to call off from work and go ride!! Not sure if it is dedication or need for $$ to support my fuzzy critters, but there is no calling in on weekends

    I am off every other weekend, next time, ok?

    YEA George!! He is a cutie pie! So glad to hear he is doing well and such an obedient patient! I have been dreaming of flying sticks and as Celeste & Denise say, going to be very careful riding over any I see!!

    I am not off again until Friday, class tomorrow sometime, and slept today, darnit. Heading out in a few minutes for a quick ride after the girls get home from school. My miles are pathetic this month..I am going stir crazy being inside!!

    So glad to hear George is on the mend & the eye is going to get most of the vision back. Hope the rest of his recovery is uneventful. When does the vet say you can ride him again?

    He will be in jail (aka stallbound) for at least 2 weeks while the flushing catheter is in. Handwalks only. Assuming all looks like it should at the 2 week checkup, the catheter can come out. How much longer he is in jail after that just depends on how the eye is looking. Should be fully healed in about a month, but we are taking things one day at a time.

    Eye treatment is a finicky thing - my cousin had had to deal with it twice on her horses. Not fun at all. Glad George is healing well and he will be a handful after 2 weeks in a stall!

    I was supposed to go on a trail last week but Lady, my rescue, had a melt down and almost killed herself. I had suspected a mild brain trauma from before I got her because nothing I ever taught her seemed to really stick, a friend offered to try but nothing worked for him either so he gave Lady back to me. I took her to the vet after her melt down and the vet confirmed brain damage. The vet thinks that she reared up and fell backwards smacking her head pretty hard sometime before she was sent to auction. There is evidence of brain swelling and brain damage which explains why she doesn't seem to remember anything I do with her. I'm looking for a new caretaker for her because I don't have the means to do it. She needs to be an only horse because she looses it around other horses. She will run through, or try to, anything to get away from them, hence the trip to the vet. I was really hoping she was just a nervous horse but now that I know she'll benefit.
    I guess that explains why she seemed so interested in everything when I rode her a few days ago. She looked at everything like it was the first time she saw it. I guess it's good she's not spooky because it could have ended terribly.

    Wow Bloo- sorry to hear about the meltdown! I lost a 4 year old in the trailer on her way to the trainer's- from what we don't know...

    I actually got to RIDE yesterday!! 8.5 miles on Chance, who had not been ridden since November, and he was awesome! We went to the waterfall, which is HUGE right now, and coming back up the hill, we were being tailed by "deerskwatch".

    Today, the concrete is getting poured in the barn!!YAY! It has to cure til Monday, so I may not be riding til next week. We shall see.....

    I went out to ride yesterday - got all dressed up to go (that is Biscuit was tacked up!) and the mounting blocks were not there I can't get on without them now. Dang. So I made myself useful and did Biscuit's feet. They were in need of trimming. I am going after while for a short ride with my cousin as soon as these cakes come out of the oven!
