one of my riding buddies was from Germany and she had to move back last Memorial Day. I am going to ask Esther if there are any of these horses close to where she is now. I am sure there is so I want her to post some pictures - she is a picture hound. She took Hershey back to Germany with her. She bought him as a foal - he is half Morgan/half Friesan and such a nice boy. We miss Esther and Hershey!

If I were wealthy, I would import some purebreds from Germany. Can Esther get me some traditional harness decorations? If I ever get back to Germany, I am doing a horse tour of the country. Maybe someone will let me drive their Schwarzwalder team, LOL.

I also had to look up the breed. Wow. What amazing horses!! And to be able to green break a horse and then put her up for 8 years and ride her --- wow. If I put my Arab up for a month, I better hold on!

Greentree I don't know. I could ask her. We miss her. She gave me riding lessons to get my confidence back after a nasty fall. Learned a bunch from her. She trail rode with us and we did lots of camp outs together. Arn

If she can I will put you in contact with her. I can't remember the town where she lives in Germany. Our barn manager and her went over to the Equitana a few years ago. OMG the barn manager had a blast!

My DH and I went for a nice little ride today. It was 65 degrees and cloudy which is perfect for a ride. We saw 2 armadillos and 2 deer. My horse remembered that she was a crazy arab today. She didn't do anything all that bad, but she was annoying. This was the first day that we got back out her fly mask to ride in. She had forgotten that she likes it. She would feel it and then toss her head like an idiot. By the end of the ride she was finally used to it. I guess she does that the first time we use it every year. Without face and ear protection, she really suffers from the flies. There is no spray that they won't bite through on those tender ears.

2.7 miles. 30.8 total.

Geesh, I feel so far behind in my mileage at only 7 miles total. Lol

I have to keep reminding myself that we have to take baby steps in conditioning myself and the horses for longer rides. Albeit I believe a couple of them would be in better shape than me after a longer ride.

That makes me happy. Of those of us that keep up with them, I seem to be dead last until you came along.

I'm going to have too see what I can do about racking up some mileage to try and catch you. Lol

I don't count the walks around the neighborhood since I wasn't on their back nor were they saddled. Still wouldn't add up to 30.

I am so disappointed...campout got cancelled for this weekend, and I didn't find out until after I spent the day packing the van. Drat.

It is supposed to rain buckets all weekend, thus the change in plans. Rescheduled for the last weekend in May, which is my working weekend. Double drat.

I should have rode today. Very mad at myself

I just looked at a weather satellite map and it looks like you have a ton of rain heading your way. It will get here by tomorrow. I don't usually work on Saturdays, but tomorrow I have to. Good timing.

Sorry your trip got cancelled.
