    Well now you have even more motivation to follow the healing schedule so you can make him eat crow.

    I am ecstatic to hear you were able to have your normal biscuit after the morning beating. Before long you'll be back out there adding on the mileage and enjoying a new found love for the ease of riding again.

    Woot!!! Thanks Roadyy. I am going out to the barn in just a little while to play with The Biscuit. I may work at stuff in the arena with him or give him a bath. His mane and tail could use a whitening.

    I have not been on here in a little bit, so I see I missed quite a bit. My grandfather passed away early morning on the 8th. We all knew it was coming, but it does not make it any easier. I took the rest of the week of off work to help with the viewing and funeral arrangments, but did manage to sneak away and ride some each day. I felt like it it was important for my sanity being cooped up with all my family all day. Thursday Temp and me rode 10 miles, Friday we rode 13 miles, Saturday we rode 12 miles and Sunday we rode 13 miles. After riding Temp on Sunday I took my new boy out. He is getting better and better. Although we did have a relapse on the mounting part, not as bad as it was when I first got him though. He was all excited because my cousin trailered over to ride, so he got worked up with all the commotion and a new horse being around. He did a couple of 360's, but did not bolt. And he stopped once I got through to him. Major improvement! We did a 4 mile trail ride with minimal trotting and he was way more relaxed than I thought he would be. Dismounting is still needing some work too. He jumps away from me when I get down, but no more of the reaching around and trying to bite me. All that backing up cured him of that.

    PhantomHorse: So sorry about Dream's injury. Hope she heals fast!
    QOS: Biscut's booboo looks like it hurt. Poor baby. I hope you are able to get out there soon and ride!

    I love having time off from work!! DH and I rode again today. 2.7 miles. The horses were angelic! We have just been going fairly slowly, but today I cantered a little bit. In the past, my horse has gone way too fast and not very well controlled when cantering out of the arena. Today she did great. 9.3 miles per hour. It was a nice, easy canter! She was a good girl today for sure.

    Total 42.8

    Sorry to hear about you losing your grandfather. Even knowing its coming is still hard to deal with sometimes. Went went through that a couple years ago with my dad's mom. She has lung cancer and it was bad so we( including her) knew it was coming. I got to spend a good weekend with her a month before she passed away. She was so happy and energetic during the visit where my aunt said it was the most she has tried to do since the cancer took hold of her.

    Hope life can get some normality to it for you and know he is no longer suffering.

    Celeste, I am boycotting your added mileage.!!! I am refusing to like your post, hun.. lol


    I had intended on skipping out on working on the trailer today to go for a long ride, but got reminded the farrier is coming out to work on 3 of the horses. I don't think riding is in my future today.

    So sorry for your loss Leynaproof. Spring is the time one thinks of birth, not death and sadness. Definitely important to keep your sanity intact and there is nothing better than horses to feel love, comfort and the knowledge that life goes on.
