We had nasty weather here for two days and OMG the wind has blown at gale force. Ugh. And freaking cold for May. It was 44 degrees here which I think was a record for May.

Sorry your ride got cancelled Amy. That bites. Especially when it was your only time to be able to go. Been there and done that. Great weekends with no weddings at times have turned to poop - and it isn't like I can say - oh well, I will go next weekend because next weekend might be booked up with weddings. Hard to gripe because that is what supports the horses but if I can't get out and enjoy them it BITES!!!

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
Yes, well, sorry, but I asked if you had watched the weather.....same here....didn't ride last weekend....don't look like we'll ride this weekend....we're expecting 3 to 4 inches with 6 to 8 inches possible in some locations. My guess is they won't get the race in either..

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

You're right, I should have looked at the weather. I did sort-of look, but I was hoping it would hold off, maybe at least stay over Friday and ride on Saturday before any rain came...no luck this time as it is raining now.

I am sure the race will be postponed until Monday, it happens a lot and the business are usually thrilled to get an extra day to make some money off the fans. Race weekend fills the hotels here and it their main souce of money for the year. They charge a lot more then the usual rate.

The good news is the van has new breaks & motors, a fresh oil change, is full of gas, and hooked up to the horse trailer ready to go!

Oh well, time to go pick up the girls from the mall.

Sorry about the ride!! I dod NOT get to meet Taffy Clayton, either! POUT! She decided to leave the farm where she was having lessons, and go on home to avoid the bad weather.

We had a great couple of days driving, though. Yesterday I think we drove around for 2 hours. The horse park was QUIET....very unusual. Last year, these were the dressage Regionals, the Paso Fino worlds, a Rocky Mountain horse show, AND our 400 carriages there ALL at the same time. Can you say NOISY???

We have to go load up in the rain, now.

I hate that the ride got cancelled and y'all make sure to keep the rest of that rain up there above the state line. I'm ready for some dryer weather so I can get all my chores done in the evening while still dry enough to try and catch Celeste's mileage. lmbo


I've got the farrier lined up for either this afternoon or Monday evening. She is going to trim Boo and Jems, as well as look at Trusty to see if he needs another trim. Doubt I'll get any closer to Celeste this weekend.

Well, y'all must not have read this in time as we are getting a band of light rain as I type this. Hopefully it will move out quickly and not be too nasty this evening after I leave work.

I wore a short sleeve shirt into work today and this cool, wet air is starting to put tiny little bumps all over my body. I'm not liking this and may have to leave at lunch even though the only time I'm exposed to it is on the way to the other fab shop or an occasional repair call. I've not had a call so far today so I guess I'm just looking for a reason to convince myself to go home and be there when the farrier gets there.

I didn't get to ride last weekend because of travel, this weekend because of weather. I am leaving at the end of the month for 10 weeks. I need riding time since I will be horseless during those 10 weeks.
