Dawn a new filly! How exciting, but where are all the pictures?? Where did you find her?
I totally understand the problem with the license plates...it was sort of ok that it was raining so much because that site is just massive! Too many choices, but I couldn't find anything on my usual sites. I figure what I don't use as a plate will make a good shirt:) plus Christmas presents willbe a breeze!
Leyna that gelding sounds sweet, and you two seem to be bonding well. He will be a great ride for you one day, that I am sure of!! Horses seem to love to get attention from a special person like you.
Bloo, maybe you should be crawling?? My brother had to do that for a week after his concussion.

PhantomHorse: Sounds like you are going to be having fun also with your new one.

I worked with Dare( my new guy) again lastnight and he stood still again for me to get on and off. For some reason he hates it when I jump down though, can't figure that one out. He is ok when I get on, but does not like me getting off. Haha. I had to get on to him the other day because he tried to bite me when I got down. Not a vicious ima tear you up bite, just kinda like " Maybe if I scare her she will quit doing that. He figured out by the end of Sunday that I am very hardheaded and very stubborn. The more you challenge me the more I want to win. After getting in trouble for trying to bite me on Sunday, he did not try to bite me yesterday, but he just looks so ill when I jump down. And I exaggerate the jumping down because I know he does not like it. And I want him to know that no matter how much noise or movement I make nothing will hurt him. Just something I will have to keep working on.

Leyna, I hope you get it figured out before he sneaks a piece of flesh out when he reaches around at you.




Celeste, thanks to my daughter and grandson, I am closing in on you again. Lol

We went for a late evening ride and logged 7 miles with the grandson going from one horse to the other at one point. I'm sure you saw the pics of them two in the over 40s thread so I'll post them again for our other logging companions here.

What a week. And its not even half over yet.

Tuesday afternoon, I got George out for a hard hill ride. While we don't have nearly the length of trail we used to (****ed logging), we still have some, so up and down them we went. Had a nice 8 miles which included 1300 feet of climbing.




Monday and Tuesday, I worked with Gamer, the new addition. She is a just-turned-6 year old Arab who is related to Dream (she is out of Dream's half sister). I was actually there at her birth years ago, as she was bred by the man who used to have Dream.

6 years ago:


At 10 days old:



Saturday, when we brought her home:

Meeting the herd (that is Dream looking all arab-like in the center, Gamer has the darker butt):



Something like a confo photo (she has obviously not missed any meals):



Exploring her new paddock:



Gamer has been doing well since coming home, considering her lack of handling. She got to go out with the herd Tuesday, after showing me that she would agree to be caught. There was a bit of running around and snake faces, but they settled down quickly. Whew.


Unfortunately, Dream came in for dinner last night with injuries to her left front leg. It looks like she got her leg caught in something (hide torn open/off along the inside of the cannon under the knee and some more missing hide above the back of the knee), but we cannot figure out what. I expected to find a place where the fence was damaged, but nothing is even bent. While the wounds are not involving tendons or ligaments or joints, she did a number on the skin and I suspect we are looking at a long time to heal. Next competition was to be a CTR next weekend. Needless to say, we won't be attending. Even the OD in June is questionable in my mind at this point. Any and all healing vibes are appreciated.

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

I must have missed where George got hurt. I thought you just rode him to the trails where the logging is getting heavy?

I hope Dream heals quickly without any serious holdups. They are all beauts in that picture and none of them look meal poor. Lol

Roadyy, the whole George saga is buried somewhere in this thread. He injured his eye severely. He is better now.
