Leyna, so sorry to hear of your loss. Very glad you got some needed horse therapy. Glad to hear things are going well with the new guy. Its a lot to deal with having new horses, so sounds like things ended on a good note.

Denise, woohoo to being able to spend some time with your boys! I second the idea that you just need to show your DH he doesn't know what he is talking about in terms of your return to saddle time.

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

Leyna, very sorry to hear about DGF. So glad you had an escape from your family.

Denise, I am so glad you got to DO some stuff with Biscuit!!

I rode my mare that DH calls my Fairy Princess Horse on the TRAIL!!! She was great.. a little looky, but it was the first time she had ever been out of the arena, and the 4th time ridden after her 9 YEARS off. I never rode her out of the round pen back when I broke her. I MIGHT have ridden her 30 times. I figure this time she can do something while she's pregnant.

I also sat on my gray mare a couple of times over the last couple of days. The wind picked up and the arena started creaking, or I would have walked her off. Oh well, no hurry, huh?

Leynaproof, so sorry about your grandfather. I still miss my Grandpa and he has been gone for 25 years next month. I can still hear his blustery laugh!! It makes me smile thinking about it. Glad you were able to get out with your horses. They make sad times a little bit better.

I went out and walked Biscuit up to the barn because KD (riding buddy) was going to ride him today. I called the farrier and left a message to get him to come out if he was in the area this week to do Biscuit's feet while I waited for KD. She got there and we got Biscuit tacked up and she rode him - getting him to walk, jog, trot, canter. She has only been on him for a few minutes before today and she said she was surprised at how tall he is (lol he is only 15.1) and how big he is. Now he is a chunky bunky so she wasn't kidding. We took his tack off later and fed him and I was just about to think about heading out and the farrier called. He had just passed up the barn and was only 3 miles past us. LOL he said "can you catch him" I said there is no catching to it..he is on the wash rack!" So Biscuit got his feet trimmed today. Craig used to do my horses before I took it over. He said I had been doing a good job. Yay for me. Biscuit does have a nasty crack that he seems to keep all the time on the back left hoof. I am going to have to get Barry to lift his foot up so I can rasp it and try to get it grown out.

It was so nice fooling around with my horse today. Just brushing his mane was nice! Here is my Biscuit Man....

Posted this is another thread, but thought I would post it here too.
I made a trade last evening for a 2 horse bumper pull trailer/float. So once I get this other horse trailer project and mud bog truck off the books then I can start traveling to some nice trails to pack on the seat time. It needs some TLC, but no where near the condition of the one I'm working on now.

Here are some pics of the trailer that I took last night.

I think once you get it all touched up it will be very nice. I like the Texas Stars in the front window!!! I wish I had a bigger tack closet - I wish I had bought the Baron instead of the Royal when I got the Brenderup!!! I need more space!

Those are on the tack hangers and I like them too. I look forward to getting it fixed up while still being able to use it.

DH and I went on another 2.7 mile ride. It was a little bit hotter today. (about 81 degrees) The horses did well. I worked some more on my horse's canter. She went straight in to the canter from a stop. That is a big improvement.

45.5 miles.
