Went for my last trail ride for a while yesterday with my cousin, her hubby, my hubby and 3 other trail buddies we always ride with.

Went to get Biscuit in the Gator. He is a sharp cookie and decided to play ring around Denise. I don't know what is up with that - he has never done that before until the last 2 weeks. Hubby was at work and supposed to meet me at the park. He had to come out and Biscuit walked right up to him and he put his belt around his neck. LOL Biscuit could come up to me licking his lips and then run off and run around me.

We rode out to the back of Tyrrell Park - lush and green with all the rain. Biscuit did a lot of jogging which was fun but he kept throwing his head around being spunky but with my balance issues, it kept unbalancing me. I didn't have my camera with me but in the back there was a huge grass trail leading into the bayou that was about 2 foot wide. OMG there is a huge alligator back there and obviously he/she had been up on the land across the trail. Glad we didn't run into that one. Rode 9.4 miles for a total of 95.6 for the year. We were going to ride today but my cousin's horse threw a shoe...so I am done. Tomorrow is surgery day and I hope that I will be back to riding in 2 or 3 months. I am going to do exactly what the doctor says so I can get back to riding. I am going to miss my trail rides!

Sounds like Biscuit wanted to play with you!

Praying the surgery goes well tomorrow and you are back in the saddle soon. Keep us posted.

I have been working bunches of overtime, so no riding lately. Maybe this week!
I am also ordering a Pessoa (copy) training system to see if I can get Drambuie back into work.

Thanks Amy. I hope Drambuie can get back healthy and sound - he and I are having issues and concerns with our backs.

Biscuit is playing with me. He is not running to the far corners - he is running in circles around me. I had increased their feed about a month ago because they had lost a some weight over the winter. I think it is now time to DECREASE!!

Yesterday I had Edgar take Sarge up to the front and I was in the middle of the pasture. I gave up and walked to the gate. Biscuit ran up to me - so I know he is just "playing" but dang...I don't have time to play Ring Around Denise.

I do enjoy seeing him run and spin though. He has become such a pretty boy and he is a good trail horse. Not great but good. I paid $1500 for him and truly, $15,000 wouldn't buy this horse from me. I trust him not to be an idiot on the trail - sometimes he is a toot but never an idiot.

I will post here by Tuesday - maybe even Monday night depending on how I come out of the anesthetic. I don't like that stuff. Makes me feel like dammit.

I hope everything goes well tomorrow with your surgery. Don't be afraid to let them give you pain medication for the first few days because it really will help you heal faster. My older Arab, Abby, does that hard to catch game occasionally. It can be a pain. I have a paddock that I can put them in and that helps. I'll be praying for you during your surgery.

DH and I went on a short (1.5 mile) trail ride yesterday. The weather was beautiful. Friday the girls were busy getting new shoes. Today it is raining like crazy. That only has me up to 26.6 miles.

Depending on how my medical tests came out (I'll find out tomorrow), I may or may not catch up with you over the next few months. I hope you are back in the saddle in no time.

Glad you got out Celeste. Biscuit will be ridden by 2 ladies I know and Barry said he would take him out to Tyrrell Park. We have reservations to go to Ebenezer in June - don't know if I will have the ok to ride by then - if not, I will go just to visit my riding buddies and Barry can ride.

I will be able to get out to the barn in 2 weeks and at least brush my horse and hopefully be there when they ride. If I can't ride I can enjoy others riding!!

Good luck on your surgery. I didn't get any riding done on the beautiful Sat. I did spend some money on horsey stuff last night. Between Christmas and Birthday, I had 150 to spend at Horsetown South yesterday. The bad part was I only got three items. I got a set of rope hobbles. Oreo is not impressed, they greatly slow down his walking to eat. I got one of the clips that works like the aussie tie ring but is a clip instead. I also got a rain sheet for Oreo since he has a hard time staying warm with cold rain.

Oreo's Girl...sounds like a fun time at the tack store. I HATE shopping except for my horses. I could stay all day in tack store!

Praying for a successful surgery from doctors with a steady hand, Denise.

Celeste, I hope you keep us updated on your situation as well.

I've not been in the saddle in over a week. One of the boys, Boo, got himself injured on both back legs. The left having the worst of it with a chunk gone to the tendon and muscle.
All my time is spent working on the barn, pasture and him. Also just got permission to use the 11 acre pasture that meets my back fence of the pasture. No charge other than the labor to clean and upkeep. I posted pics in the mature 40s thread in the Horse Talk section if you want to see pics.

I'll keep checking back for good reports from those who are ailing.

Finished my first LD (luxury distance?) ride on my gelding on Saturday. I learned a ton. He's an old pro--Every water crossing, he had four feet and a snout buried in the water. He ate like a champ. I can't wait for our next one.

30 miles more, for 103.4
