    Amy, I think it does look worse than it is. It is almost 2:00 AM here and it is freaking pouring rain. I most likely won't get out to the barn tomorrow. Busting my butt in the mud wouldn't be a good thing. Next time I am at the barn I will take a baling twine and slip around his neck. Once you catch him he will not pull away. LOL I will stock up on carrots and molasses.

    Sounds like you had a great ride. Dreaming of when I can go.....

    We're scheduled to get that rain today & Saturday. Another wet weekend but I'll be at work anyway. This morning I have to take the car into the shop.

    Denise has someone else been handling Biscuit?

    I was going to suggest the old baling string hidden in your hand trick. Sounds like you already planned it.

    Hopefully everyone's horses and Denise can all get healed up and back on the trails quickly.

    I may have another side job project for a neighbor over the next month that will likely keep me from getting a lot of riding in. He asked me to help correct the steering and axle problem on his raised mud bogg truck. He saw my rock crawler jeep and the suspension/ steering I did on it. He is hopin to have it done before the huge mud bogg in Perry, Fl in 2 months, but I'm not sure I will have time to do it in that amount of time without a lot of lost sleep. Time will tell.

    Oh, btw. I downloaded a GPS navigation app to my droid phone and thought I would give it a quick review. It's called Backcountry Navigator Pro and seems to be a very good app. I checked out the 30 day free version and it has a few different topo maps as well as a satellite map to view your track. Also keeps up with mileage , average speed, top speed and a few other things. I'm impressed with it so far.

    Here is an overhead shot of my property. You can see the pond layout behind the house.

    I have been trail riding the Old Hendricks Lake powerline trails, used to be able to go for about 10 miles without hitting fenced property, now it's about 5 miles. Picture from yesterday, stinking hot, I really appreciate when I find the deer trails through the woods, nice & cool.

    AnitaAnn - no one really has been handling Biscuit. He has been rode once since my surgery by a friend and Barry is the one who brought him up from the pasture. He had no trouble catching him. The first time I went back out to the pasture (3 full weeks since I'd seen them) Biscuit was a doll. Stood there while I ran my hands all over him and Barry picked up his hooves for me to check their growth. He is being a toot and playing with me....and I don't want to play. He has never knocked me down ever in the pasture trying to evade me even when I first got him. But, with this dang surgery, it would be a disaster if I fell. Ugh.

    Celeste, the old baling twine is a good thing.

    Roadyy I have have heard of that App....it is so much fun to track miles and see the route you have taken! Love it!

    Waresbare - oddly enough, it has been kinda cool here in southeast Texas. Very odd weather patterns for this time of year! Generally by now it is pretty dang hot and we have moved our riding time up to 9:00 AM or earlier. By the time summer is here we are riding out at 7:30 AM.

    Denise, I know you will be glad when you are back to a non-restrictive mobility so there is no fear of getting after Biscuit when he misbehaves like this playing with you.

    Waresbear, there are some power lines close to my place, but there are locked gates on the entrance road. There isn't any fence on either side, but the locked gate is enough to tell me to stay out.

    These powerlines were removed 20 years ago when the mine at Hendricks Lake shut down, but the cut trail through the woods stayed. A few parcels have been sold, so naturally the owners fenced it off to run cattle. Snowmobilers use it in the winter and have been cutting trees that have fallen across the trail so it remains accessible. If I haul on the road about 15 miles further down on the same ridge, there is cross country ski trails, about 20 miles worth, that leads to 2 lakes. We used to be able to take a bush trail around the backside to get to it, but it's fenced now, there is a gate, however I respect private property and don't go through it.

    Went out to see the horses for a minute. I didn't get in the pasture - I would have had to jumped over a freaking lake. But, Biscuit came all the way across the pasture to be hugged up, loved on and fed treats. He was ok with getting all around his head, even touching his bobo. He must have had a whopper of a headache for 2 days. I am pretty sure he would have let me halter him with no problem. The past two days he would have never let me get that close to his eye. Now, I will just have to work on the ring around the rosies when he sees the Brenderup.

    I am thinking that if I take the Brenderup out there and maybe leave it in the pasture with them for awhile so he quits associating it with going riding....maybe he is smarter than me
