@carshon : fingers and toes crossed you can have both hips done this winter. I am sure you cannot wait to be riding without pain! great find on that saddle - would love to see pics when you get done cleaning it up.


I got a bit of saddle time a couple weeks ago as I couldn't resist the nice weather despite being so behind on life after potatoes.

Finally have a farrier scheduled to come out. He'll be here Saturday. I liked him when we spoke on the phone, but the proof will be Cally's feet. Keep your fingers crossed!

@SwissMiss - Raya is looking good. She's such a pretty girl! Is DH ready for Chamois yet? Noticed she has a pretty purple helmet. She needs her own unicorn.😉

@phantomhorse13 - I suspect the Lyme disease will have Laura retiring. She's a tiny thing and in the past few years the work has really been beating her up. It's a shame though because the horses love her. So do I. 😢

@AnitaAnne - have you explored solar options for heating water and chickens?

@Celeste - how could anyone be afraid of HWNN? He's a sweetheart and lap puppy! You are so lucky to have friends to ride with. I wish I had local riding buddies.

I know I've missed some people I wanted to reply to... Out of practice. I'm going to try to be here more often. I've missed y'all.

Courage is taking just one more step...

@Change : fingers and toes crossed the new farrier works out!

Two weekends ago, I trekked over to Jersey for a CTR. The whole story is in my journal.

I rode Auburn the first day:







I rode Rebar the second day:

@Change HWNN finally has a name. Dylan. He doesn't really care what you call him.

The weather here is miserable. 35 degrees and raining. Yuck. My sister lives in Nashville, and she said that the temperature got down to 16 there. It was a record low.

Dylan has gotten to used to riding off with another horse and he was not interested in riding out alone. Now that the dog goes along, he is good to go. He is so much fun to ride! My friends that keep being afraid of a cool, sunny day will just miss out.

Recognize this hairstyle?

He is such a nice horse. So glad that he is willing to ride with the dog as his companion

I am behind again!

@Celeste Love the name Dylan! It suits HWNN You are a tough lady, riding in the bitter cold. How did you stay warm? When I get cold I feel like a board going over bumps; stiff and shaky

@carshon YAY for the hip replacement surgery scheduled! Do you recall the member that used to be on here named Nicker? She was young and had bilateral hip replacements. I remember she had some saddle fit issues at first, needed a narrow tree or something, but once that issue was resolved she had no problems riding.

Praying you have just as much success

@QueenofFrance08 how nice to have a new-to-you trailer! It looks huge to me but must be much smaller than you large LQ one.

How many horses do you have now? They are all doing so well with endurance, you have such a natural ability for all this! Love to see your pictures and ride stories

@Change YAY for new farrier!! Let us know how Callie likes him/her. Do they do barefoot trimming?

Solar heaters would need a very powerful system I think, and electricity is something I never quite understood anyway. I would be afraid to electrocute myself and the poor chickens if I tried!

Called the power company one time trying to get a price on setting up a light pole and power source for me there, but got the total runaround. So I gave up.

@phantomhorse13 I hopped over to your thread to enjoy the videos and ride stories. How is George doing? And Kestrel? Hoping for a full recovery.

@greentree how are all your ponies doing? Have you been riding much??

@SueC How is your horse doing on the medication, is he riding the same?

@Spanish Rider you haven't posted in a while, have been wondering if you have been riding much lately. Is you eldest coming home for the holidays or staying here in the US? You will miss him if he stays

@SwissMiss is Miss Raya improving? Hope you were able to ride today.

He wasn't on the full dose, he got lethargic, so we dropped him down to half, where he is his normal self. Vet said treatment with him was optional anyway because he has a mild case at the moment and no metabolic problems with it. He was basically turning into a yak last winter and then was vastly dreadlocked while shedding. The treatment prevented him turning into a yak this winter, but, just as he was starting to shed in spring, something strange happened: His winter coat, which was about to be shed, suddenly grew about four times as long during the weeks he was shedding, and then he temporarily looked like a yak again, and got dreadlocks despite my best untangling efforts. Two weeks ago, all that stuff fell off and now he has a nice, normal, shiny, chocolate summer coat, and looks great again. While he looked like Cousin It, he wasn't behaving any differently - it seemed only to bother me, not him...

SueC is time travelling.

@Celeste : glad that Dylan finally has a name and that he is good with the dog for company! good that you aren't letting the cold to keep you from riding.

@AnitaAnne : how are you doing? is your knee letting you ride? How is Herbie settling in?

@SueC : glad to hear you have found the right medication dose. he must be stunning in his summer coat. I hope you are not frying or on fire, as it sounds like momma nature is not being kind to some parts over there.


I have gotten a bit of saddle time as the weather allowed. The whole story is in my journal.
