    Leyna, how tall is he? My mare is 1/2 Egyptian, by The Apostolos, out of my little Heinz 57 (but very cute and talented) Miekkis Baba Saba.

    He is a little over 15.2 H and he is only 5, so he will probably mature to 15.3.

    The new boy is eye candy-hope he works out for you-maybe he just needs a job. Lots of wet saddle blankets will probably help a lot, too.

    QOS, glad to hear your surgery went well and that you're home. I used to do Bloo's feet but I messed my knee up and had to find a farrier. I'm picky about Bloo's feet especially now since he's getting a little tender footed in his old age but I love the guy I use now.

    Bloo's easyboots came in just in time for the annual week-ish trail riding vacation with my cousins and a few of our friends. I trailer Bloo up to NH to meet the rest of the group and then we all ride out to a cabin and stay there for a week or two. The cabin has 2 corrals for our horses and there are a few horses that are on the property for us to alternate with. This year's group was the biggest we've ever had. 7 people, 4 dogs, and 13 horses including the ones left at the cabin. My dad called after the first week to make sure no one died because it's a technology free vacation, the only phone we have is the land line in the cabin and the only vehicle besides the horses is a truck for emergency uses or shopping trips. We usually pack in enough but it's there if we need it. Usually one of our parents calls to make sure we're fine and if we've decided to stay longer. We usually bring cameras but I accidentally left mine at my cousin's barn, but I remembered my gps, which came in handy on a few rides. The ride out to the cabin is about 20 miles from our starting point and we rode another 327.7 miles over the 2 weeks exploring and getting lost.
    .He wasn't impressed having to wait to get in the trailer. I swear I've got the only horse in the world that LOVES to be hauled. He loads himself and will yell if I take too long to notice he's ready to go.


    I took some pictures when I did his tack check before putting him on the trailer. Good thing I checked too because someone borrowed my saddle and left one of the school saddles on my rack


    My cousins and I are thinking about going out just the 4 of us again in a few months. It's fun as a group but I'm the oldest going out so I have to look after everyone and not all of them have as much experience as I do so I baby sit a lot of the time. At least I know my cousins can ride and handle the trails.

    432.2 miles to date.

    Wow wee Bloo that is fantastic!!! Cousins are the best!!! Unfortunately, only one of my 1st cousin's ride and he didn't start riding until he was an adult. I ride with my 2nd cousin-she and I are very close even though we knew of each other-we never met til we were 50. Hahahahah she and I would love a 2 week vacation up in a cabin. We need to make that happen.

    Get some of your cousins to share their pics!!! So jealous - pea green of that vacation!

    Wow Bloo, that is quite a trip you took! Sounds like a dream vacation!

    Leyna that gelding is really nice! Sure hope you success with him.

    I put Drambuie in the Pessoa type lunging rig the other day. He was a little wound up about the whole thing, and didn't really work very round, but sure had some explosive moments!! I discovered it is really hard for a horse to get away when he has the rig on! I doubt I could have held him without it.

    I had it sort of loose, so once it is adjusted more, I think he'll start moving better. I hope so anyway.

    Denise, do you want to borrow it when you get out of your brace? LOL
