I didn't ride today because last night I got a phone call that my job at work today was cancelled so I stayed up late. Then at 5am I got another phone call that my job was back on and had to get up and go to work.
Plus, I thought I lost my horse!!! Turns out that new bay out there is actually my palomino in camo so I can't find him to ride!! Dang mud.

I didn't ride this past weekend because I worked til 3pm Saturday then doctored up on Boo, mucked the stalls, raked the fallen leaves in the front yard and hauled off some garbage.

Yesterday in church til 12 then met for lunch and it started raining about the time we got home. Doctored up Boo's leg then walked the new pastures behind us to evaluate what all I need to do to make it horse safe as possible.

I didn't ride yesterday because my kids did, and thats an exhausting undertaking, lol. The older one can handle it all, but the 6 yr old, who has to ride a full-sized horse, since we don't have anything pony-sized except my older one's brat, has to have help and likes me to stay close by at all times, which mean jogging around a few feet to the left and behind whoever she's riding.

Up early to ride? Check

Ground suitably frozen? Check

Blowing a gale, with handfuls of snow in it not so good.

OK, so there is only one horse here that I want to ride in a gale and snow, so I go catch him and

FREAKING LAME

So not riding again today

Has a split in his hoof, my own fault I didn't get him done last time Jc was here. I'm hoping that he can get here soon and sort him out, with this really hard freeze and ruts if they are at all long it is so easy for them to either take a chunk out or split.

It isn't to bad I don't think, but he is going short on it, so hopefully a trim will sort him out. There is no heat or swelling anywhere, but could also of jarred himself, start with the hoof and work up I think.

I didn't ride because, well, I'm tired of running all over the place and needed a break this weekend. Besides, the Masters was on.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I didn't ride today because I'm not sure where Spring is, and the footing is hard and slick, even on the trails!
