What a Witch!!

I wanted to do a 20 minute ride this morning before it got too hot. Well, Gandy had other things in mind. She's really been in heat, and talk about being a witch. Oh my! I actually had to get off of her and walk her a bit before I ripped her head off! So she settled and I climbed back on, not an easy feat for this old gal... She still would NOT walk. So I pushed her into a hard trot and just made her trot trot trot. She finally about died and at the end we had a nice slow jog again. My 20 minute ride lasted an hour.

Yes, I know I am not dressed correctly for riding... it's either this, or no ride at all, I just can't stand jeans when it's this hot outside.

Getting on... Gah! It's hard to do!! Not as flexible as I once was...

Yes, I'm hanging on to the horn, I was posting too but you don't see that..

Here she starting to settle a little..

I still love her...

Yes, I am definitely a mare person. I've dealt with a lot of geldings through the years as I boarded horses for many many years. Give me a mare any day. The are so much CLEANER in the stall!

O yes they are, soooo much nicer.

LOL. Silly girl. I prefer geldings for just that reason. I never have to worry if one of mine has PMS or not. LOL.

She is still stunning though. Good job sticking with it even in the miserable heat.

Lol. I used to say all the time I would prefer a gelding over a mare anyday. And ever since I had a mare then a gelding im the complete opposite.

7Ponies, first let me take my hat off to you for being able to mount from the ground! I gave up a while ago, should see me on the trail, searching for a ditch, rock or stump!

And don't you love when you make a plan and "they" have their own agendas! But I have to agree, love my mare too. Even more now because she isn't a typical mare. She is always even mooded. Maybe she has a higher amount of testosterone then estrogen!? And yes, compared to Walka, T is always clean. Very rarely rolls in the mud and keeps to a corner in the stall. Love mares!

That's funny because it is the complete opposite for our gelding and mare. The gelding has specific corners he "goes" in, while our mare just goes wherever she's standing
