@Change, I'd imagine your brain is mush! Goodness!

@JCnGrace, dang. I looked that town up, and it's three hours from work! Not happening a girl can dream! And I wish :/ unfortunately not for the foreseeable future. I can dream there too good call not turning it on! Temps are dropping here, ugh!

@PoptartShop, it was good! Glad I was able to chat. And he's a good boy :) definitely super handsome! And I had a great ride last night! Hopefully you can get a ride in!

I got to ride my girly last night! She was SO good! But I guess I frustrated her with the lack of work, again, as she took off running soon as I let her loose to be fair, it was mid seventies and she has a thick winter coat haha! But we cantered even and it was GREAT!

Took a fun video though she'd never seen that flag before Sydney started flapping it haha


And my kids being cute with her :)

to @Change and E. I was going to wait until next week to post it but was afraid I'd forget so sending early happy wishes to you.


Congrats @Mulefeather ! That is awesome! Will the certification help in your job search?

@PoptartShop , stay away from the rescue lady until her flu is gone, we don't want you getting sick. Have you heard anything back from your interview? I hope you'll treat us to pics when you go see Camden.

@Tazzie , if you worked in Louisville it might be doable but not so much Cinci. Are you having any trouble getting across the river and to work? They said in the news last night that flooding was bad in that area. When I was watching your video what popped out at me was that you could rub the flag on her mouth and she didn't try to eat it. Every one of mine would have. LOL


Rain started up again last night just as the mud was beginning to firm up in most places. YUCK! We deal with White River flooding so I'll have to go the long way around to get to mom's Friday which means I'll have to leave even earlier than the already planned 7:30 am departure time. Another YUCK! LOL

@Mulefeather , yay!! Congrats!!

@JCnGrace , if I could live and work in Louisville I'd do it in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, Nick makes too much at his job that he could never find anything comparable elsewhere. I do dream of living down by Louisville with all my friends though... and there are A LOT of roads shut down over here, but none that really hinder me. Well, except the added traffic on the main roads. I cross over the Big Mac bridge onto 71 (from 471), so I'm not down by the flooding areas. Pretty thankful for that! And haha, she's PICKY. I'd love for her to be curious to try things like my friend's mare (who literally eats anything), but Izzie is like her mommy and won't eat something that doesn't look good so no sampling with her mouth. That and I think she was cranky with me that our ride was short. You can see her puffing a little in that video though, and that was all of MAYBE 15 minutes of work with a lot of it being walk. This mud is TOUGH to work in!

Ugh! Good luck with your driving! Though at 7:30 I'll already have an experiment halfway done


Get to leave for this meeting soon, ugh. But then I get to go home! YAY!

It was Spring Fever at the barn today. It was almost 70 degrees out, and so nice to be there! Attempted to ride Jet, and I think he was feeling the Spring Frenzy as well. He was being jumpy today, so got off him, lunged him for a bit, and got back on. He was still semi jumpy, so I played it safe and did circle work with him on one end of the arena. I wanted to end the ride as much of a good note as possible. After I put him back out, he immediately went to have a nice roll. My trainer and my friend both said that the horses and ponies tend to act this way around this time of the year, and trainer said at least I worked with what I can today and got something out of the ride. There are always other riding days to work on no stirrups at the walk and trot. :)

The barn is suppose to be going to Horse Expo as well on the 2nd and 3rd and I couldn't take either dates off my job, so a bit bummed about that lol.

Sorry I didn't get the chance to reply to everyone! I did read and like all that I have read. I hope everyone is having a good time with the warm weather. :)

I confess, even being at home I lack motivation to participate actively, but I know you will forgive me when you watch this!

Is that you & Grand @Cherrij ? Looks like fun!




I confess that I didn't do much at all today because it rained the entire day. I did rename Cutter to GaThuCutter. LOL And we used to make fun of mom for not getting our names right. It's come back to bite me in the butt.

Yes @JCnGrace , it's us going for a joy ride. He is such a good driving horse - this was the first time in the forest, I think the third ride in full driving tack, the bow harness. And of course bitless.
