    I have been over multiple times to look at the headstones. The cemetery is very old, with most of the inscriptions being from the 1800s! It's located behind an equally old church and beside what was a 1-room school house. Lots of history.

    Got out again today on Sultan. One of the pluses of being unemployed def is my ability to ride! Also awfully nice to have the horses in the backyard.

    Took Sultan over the same route we took Dream and George yesterday. No pictures from today as someone was a bit of a pill.

    2013 mileage
    01/03/13 dream 1.95 miles 4.4 mph 1.95 total miles
    01/06/13 dream 6.56 miles 4.1 mph 8.51 total miles
    01/07/13 sultan 6.77 miles 4.8 mph 15.28 total miles

    Wish you would have gotten pics Phantom! Classes start tomorrow. The weather is perfect today and I am stuck at my house because I can't find any other friends headed to the barn so that I can bum a ride. Being car less stinks! I am hoping mine is fixed and returned to me later this afternoon/early evening.

    Y'all need to get some good pictures up so I can celebrate my last day of vacation vicariously through yall :)

    Hope your car is back asap. Never fun to have to depend on someone else for transport.

    If you want pictures from my ride today, just squint at the pictures I posted of yesterday and then turn your head side to side quickly.. rode the same trail today, but did a lot more of it sideways and at a jig!

    Hahahaha that is a hoot Dawn! Sounds like Sultan wanted to make the ride a little more exciting!! You are so blessed to have the horses in the backyard...I have mine 2 miles away, which is good, but not as great as having them at home. I sure do miss seeing my horses when I wash dishes.

    I finally was able to ride today!! Yea!! Silly Drambuie walked right up to me in the pasture before I even called him, then as soon as I reached to put his halter on he spun around and started walking away! Silly horse.

    Anyway, I couldn't remember how to get the Foretrex cleared out from my last ride so I didn't get the miles recorded. Maybe it is in there somewhere, but will just have to fiddle with it a bit. It was recording speed though, so that is good to know. His walk is slow, he wants to stay around 3 mph and did not want to walk faster, his working trot is great, easily at 7.4 mph and his nice collected canter is at 9.3 mph.

    I didn't push him for speed in the canter because I was havin a heck of a time catching my breath with the cold wind hitting my lungs. I'm still not all the way recovered from the flu and I was too tired to ride Chivas too. So I only rode for about an hour. I may have to ride with a mask on for a while, dorky as that may look...

    I do really love Drambuie though, he is so nice and smooth and so willing to try anything I ask, big & beautiful, and sweet & loving...he is just a joy and a blessing to me. I enjoy every moment I am around him. I guess that sounds crazy, but he is just exactly the perfect horse and I am so happy!!!

    Dawn, Sultan is gorgeous - so being a bit of pill is part of his charm I am sure!

    I rode at the barn today with my riding buddies. The BM was on MiTye (not sure if that is the way her name is really spelled!) and she is just gorgeous. She has some rarefied Arabian bloodlines that is very sought after. Her owner bought her from the ranch but rarely comes out so MiTye is rarely rode but OMG she is so smooth and trained out the wazootie. She can side pass like no horse I have ever seen. She flies down the rail literally dancing all the way. Such a sweet mare too. If she was mine I would be kissing her up! BM was telling us that the owner is constantly asked about selling her as a broodmare to get her bloodlines. LOL If I were rich, I would buy her today.

    But, I will keep my boy The Biscuit. He was such a doll today. Hoping to get out riding soon - but we are expecting MORE RAIN. It is already the 7th and I still haven't been able to hit the trails. DANG. Y'all ride for me.

    haha I actually did it just to see what it would like. That must have been some ride!! Were you as dizzy as I got? Hahahaha

    The dealership actually just called to tell me it was ready and waiting! Getting a ride from a friend to pick it up in about an hour. Super excited to have my own wheels again!

    Its getting dark here now, so no riding for me today. I'll have to just feed and call it a night. Tomorrow starts my first "school schedule" riding day. Meeting at the barn at 5 30. Here's hoping the 6 alarms I've set on my phone are enough to get me out of bed. The first day is always the hardest. I'll try to get some good sunrise pics for yall again tomorrow!

    Hope everyones enjoyed the trails and the first week of the new year!
