Cordillera, that is quite an angry looking River. I also wonder if what kind of snakes are floating around in there?

I think I would forego an Ox for a 4-wheeler, if you had a mechanic in easy reach:)

SueC Happy birthday to your husband! Fantastic pictures as usual:)

@Change I'm pretty sure the weather folks have lied to us --- I swear they said lower humidity today, yet the ice cubes I literally wear to help stay cool were all melted by 10:30 this morning, doing barn chores

@boots , don't feel like the Lone Ranger --- this thread is moving faster than I can keep up too, so I do a lot of reading and looking at everyone's great pictures, lollol

***

No interesting news here --- I need to try and mow tomorrow as half the yard could already stand to be baled. One of Joker's sections is already past the finish mower, so the farm tractor is going to have to bush hog thru it

The equine chiro came today. I already figured Joker's neck needed help and it did. I knew something was wrong with Rusty but I wS a little surprised to find out he did so,etching to his pelvis. I don't know it he twisted in his stall or did another one of his dip 'n spins to close to the fence and twisted himself.

I've started a thread in the Training Section about Rusty, so anyone reading that thread and this one, please don't give the answer away, lollol. It's mostly for newer horse owners who think every time a horse does something behaviorly wrong or unacceptable that it must be a discipline problem. My point is show that is not always the case and some of the newer owners need to step back, KNOW their horse and figure out if the horse needs disciplined or health help

That's all I got -- see --- not one thing interesting, lol

@Woodhaven : hope this nice weather has made it up you to and you are back in the saddle again!

@boots : hope the irrigation is starting to make more sense, or you have figured out a decent workaround somehow. getting hay in is exhausting but so rewarding.

@walkinthewalk : glad Rusty and Joker are feeling better after the chiro visit. good luck mowing tomorrow.


Today, I went over to ride with Nicole. I rode Hombre. The whole story is in my journal.







Tomorrow, I plan to get George out and then ride the mower and finish packing..


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

I'm with @boots , mostly skimming through and looking at the wonderful photos.


Regarding snakes and such in the river, this is the tropics. Last time I mentioned the snakes in here, folks ran away screaming. LOL. No crocs in our area though. They are endangered salt water crocs, and the few that are left are found in the coastal areas.


I didn't go up yesterday. We had an all day, all night rain. The white rock to the left of the road in the photo is my flood gauge. As seen in the photo, water is about running board deep on our small pickup truck. The day before yesterday, only a little of the rock was showing. Water was over the running boards, and I could feel the truck swimming a bit.


The guy who lives beside the river crossing has a carabao. He is our go to guy when we need to haul stuff up without a motor vehicle. We are also kicking around the idea of buying a local made farm truck. Essentially, an oversized jeep with 4, or 6 wheel drive.

Thanks for the welcomes! My apologies for the delayed response from me. I went out of town the next day after I posted , to a trade show that was like, or worse than a work day. Came home after two days of doing the trade show for 4 hours and driving for 4 hours!! whew, I will NOT try to plan it that way again, it was too much. Then a day of hauling Sonny for a lesson, followed by a work day. Then came Sat and I went to the farm where we sat up and practiced obstacles (riding) in the Heat and Humidity, so pretty wiped out after that. I did rest up a bit on Sunday, then right back to work on Monday and Tuesday, and an all day (8 hours) horsey day yesterday. Are u tired yet? LOL. I am.....anyhow....

Walkinthewalk--Good to know another Middle Tn. Horsewoman. I'm 100% sure that if I were no longer able to ride, I would have just as much fun and enjoyment doing groundwork and Liberty, or learn driving with Sonny as long as I could still do those things. If not , then I'd still love grooming, feeding, etc,,generally being around horses. Don't they smell so good?? To me, being a horseperson is so much more than 'just riding'. I love the pic of Joker enjoying the fan. Looks like a glamour shot with the glistening coat and the windblown mane and forelock. Beautiful! I don't know if you would enjoy it or not, but we are participating in an arena obstacle challenge on Saturday at Meridian Equestrian Center on Hwy. 231 between Murfreesboro and Cedars of Lebanon State Park. C'mon out and watch if it sounds fun to you. We arrive and register at 8 or 8:30, then a riders orientation at ?9 ish, and start the challenge at 10ish.

Someone asked....Sonny is an Arab, a tank built, stocky one, but full (registered) Arab. He does have a dished face, wide jaw and wide sprung ribs. I suspect he is of the Polish variety, but I never researched his ancestors listed on his papers and now I can't find his paper. I do remember that some of the horses on it lived into their 30's, so I have high hopes that he will also. He is super smart, very sweet, very fast and athletic, but quite opinionated and sometimes has to be convinced that my idea is better than his idea.

My friend and I practiced the obstacles again yesterday, took a lunch break, then loaded up and went to Cedars of Lebanon for a ride,,,only about an hour and a half because she needed to get home to get ready for an appointment that evening. We ride more often at Cedars than anywhere else, it is nice and it is also closer than Percy Warner. East Fork in Smyrna is closer but not as nice , imo. We are going to Long C campground for 3 days in September, I'm looking forward to enjoying the creek there as none of the day trip rides that we do have any water crossings. I've never been to Walter Hill, it probably does have water crossing.

PH13- Sorry if I wasn't clear- We have cougars (mtn lion), we don't have bears in NE Nevada. After all I went to elementary school in California where I learned basic writing skills?


Yesterday I didn't even touch a horse! I did however throw some hay over the fence. Worked on the lawns sprinkling system. Now that's a retirement type job. I made 2 trips to town for parts which eats a lot of time. At 5:30 I needed one coupler that went from 1 1/4" to 1". I wrote a note of what I needed and sent GD1 to town to get it. The guy at the hardware store sent her back with 5- 1" to 1" couplers and 5- 1 1/4" to 1 1/4". GD1 told him it wasn't right- he just got snotty and told her he was a "certified sprinkler installer" and he knew better than her what I wanted. Holy crap!! So I made another trip to town- 20 miles each way. I got there just before they closed. I took the note with me and tried to look the guy up. Maybe they could guess I was upset, the guy was not to be found. I had the assistant manager read my note and he was able to tell what I needed (and the number).

On a more pleasant note- I judged a rodeo queen contest this week. It was a pretty good time. I judged with a 22 yo former queen and a middle aged woman. When I introduced myself to them the older woman said, "I know there is no reason for you to remember me, but you judged this same rodeo queen contest when I won it 18 years ago." Small world, huh? Have I really been doing this stuff for that long?


We judged horsemanship, speech, modeling, current events, interview, and rodeo knowledge. They had a queen (17 to 20) and a princess (13 to 16) contest. It was interesting to note that in the speech portion, all the girls mentioned how much they rode and enjoyed horses, but in the horsemanship portion it became very obvious who had really spent significant time horseback.

@Cordillera Cowboy : I don't mind snakes in general, but prefer not to interact with ones that might kill me! An oversize jeep sounds like a good idea as swimming with the truck is a bad idea.

@mslady254 : I am tired just reading about your week!

@Rod : how frustrating that the store clerk wouldn't believe your note or your GD. I hope you said something to the manager about it. the rodeo queen/princess judging sounds very interesting. did you and the other judge agree on the same person to start with?


Today, I got George out. The whole story is in my journal.







Tomorrow, we head for Vermont!

Look who has moved into our neighborhood. Who ever heard of bears in middle Georgia. Maybe when the horses get spooky, they have a reason.

You might want to notify your Georgia Wildlife --- especially if he happens to have a tracking device on him:)
