wow wee Amy - that is some ride!!! It should pull the Brenderup just fine!!!

One of my riding buddies went out and rode Biscuit today. Hubby went out there and rode Sarge. He said Biscuit did a good job and was a good boy. So glad!!! I will hopefully get to see Biscuit and Sarge Monday before heading for the Doctor. Saturday will be 3 weeks since I have seen them. That is way way too long!

Checked the pics this morning from the phone and only one was clear enough to see. Hopefully I can remember to take the camera next time and get some worth posting.

This was the only one of any account so I guess I can post it. It's the straight away we get most of our canter in on.

My mother lives in the north western part of Nevada and had snow a week or two ago for a few hours. She's already got more horses than she wants so I doubt she'd enjoy another one, especially since they are machines/workers to her. She doesn't ride for pleasure, if they can't work and earn their keep then they don't stay. Which is why I don't live with her, my horse(s) are my pets and companions. And I've lived on my own since I was 16 so I'm used to being independent and not having to answer to anyone. She's agreed to try and at least halter break Cowboy and get him shipped over here. The other horses are beating him up pretty badly so she had to fence off a separate area for him which really ruffled her feathers. She wants him gone but not to slaughter especially when I'm willing to take him off her hands so she'll put some work in. I'm not expecting miracles though.

Bloo's hoof wasn't cracked too badly. I packed it with putty and threw the boots on before we went out for a ride and he had no problems. We rode up to my old neighborhood where there's a huge field we sometimes race around. There is one path that leads in or out and it's a straight shot in so I cantered Bloo up. I hadn't counted on there being kids around but by the way they were screaming you would have thought I was there to kill them. Good thing Bloo is such a good horse. I know bombproof horses that would have dumped me and bailed at the sound of them. The kids wouldn't leave us alone and were trying to pull my dogs around by their vests so they got a good tongue lashing from me about yanking around strange animals and medical dogs before we turned around and left. Some people's children. We'll just try again tomorrow, during school hours of course.

440 miles to date.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Today I did a lovely ten miles on GEORGE!!!






George was fantastic! You would never have known anything had happened. He was forward and happy and I was grinning from ear to ear (anybody having seen me likely would have thought I was a lunatic). What a feeling!!

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

Bloo...sometimes it is best not to live around parents! LOL I adore my mother but my bio dad - gaaaaaaaaaa I have his number in my cell phone so I know it is him calling and I don't answer it!!!

About the kids pulling on the dogs - I think I would have a talk with their parents. Don't know how old these kids are but doing that to a strange dog could get their face bit off. Dang...as my grandmother used to say "what does mong you?" Their parents need to be aware so they can do something before a huge medical bill occurs.

Dawn - I am so happy for George. Glad that he seems to have weathered it so well. My goodness he is a super trooper!!! Such a good boy when it happened, through the vets stay and now out on the trails again like nothing happened. Super Trooper George....you need to embroidery that on his saddle blanket or his halter!!

Crazy Arabs, LOL!!!!

Today, I rode my little Alaska, who I broke when she was 3, rode about 15 times and then bred her early in her 4th year, and then she had my 4 Schwarzwalder fillies, so it has only been 8 YEARS since I last rode her!!
She walked off like it was yesterday, and we worked our way up to trotting in the driving arena, and she was GREAT! I was grinning like a fool, too!! This mare is SO beautiful, I will have to post a picture. Have to take them first!! I want one more Schwarzwalder out of her, then I can do rides on her. What a pleasure she is.

I also worked Lucy with the new saddle, and a crupper. I almost got on her, she held my weight , and was calm as I did my flapping saddle swinging stirrups patting while hanging over your back deal. Maybe there is hope for her to be an equine good citizen, LOL.

SO glad George is back!!

Headed for the Kentucky Horse Park to do some carriage driving with Taffy Clayton tomorrow, so excited to meet her!! Perhaps someone will take some pictures.

Sure will... They are all chestnut with flaxen manes and tails, but not dunkel(dark) like their sire. They are by Rondo, from Proud Meadows. I had 4, but lost one, so I am trying to rebreed Alaska. Now that I have moved, it is proving difficult. I used to drive 2 hrs to Waxahatchie to pick up semen, and he lived at Proud Meadows where there was a breeding facility. Now Rondo has moved, and so have I!!! I SO want a four-in-hand of these mares.... I ADORE them.
