9x9 Lightly Greased Pan

@Foxhunter suggested I post in a more open forum so more people see my posts as I was putting them in a closed forum before. I just never know where to post content that is horse related but not always super specific. So starting a journal is probably a good way to go.

I've started putting some of my rides on youtube as playlists so the easiest way to watch them is just to go to the playlist and let it run through all of them in order. My first couple of posts in here will just be copies of ones I posted in the closed forum. I will post the maps of the playlists here as well so you can see where each video was taken along the route.

Sometimes people go with me on my rides, generally not but from time to time they do. Most of them are not down with social media so I won't be posting their names or who they are. Usually it is friends of mine that say they want to go riding so I take them with me. Some of them are not good riders so please refrain from commenting on their equation if they are in a video.

The reason for the name of this journal is because in my house that is where you find cornbread and Cornbread is my nickname going back many years to when I was in the Marines.

To stave off any questions needing to be answered a cajillion times I was in the Marines for eight years. I wasn't anything high speed, just in the regular infantry. Mostly in a weapons company in the CAAT platoon or counter mech platoon depending on what that unit called it and I spent all but six months of my active duty service deployed overseas. Yes, I served during several wars and that is all I have to say about that.

Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.

Glad you started a journal. Your gelding is quite handsome and I love the terrain. My family has a strong history with the armed services. My sister served in the Marines for 4 years - medically discharged after getting bit by a brown recluse spider on or near her eyelid, it caused her to lose sight in that eye when the retina detached and has caused migraines since then. Her husband (also a Marine) served 15 years in the corps before transferring to the Army to drive convoy in the middle east. He is since retired.

Thank you for your service - I enjoy your videos

Lastly for this set of copied posts. I didn't ride yesterday because I wasn't feeling up to it. I had my infusion on Sunday and it takes me a few days to be back up and around to where I don't feel like I just got run over by a truck so I don't ride on those days.

I did however do a small project that has been on my todo list. I needed a bridle rack because I always have a bridle, bit and reins setup for each horse I am currently riding because I really dislike adjusting tack.

I have more bridles than this but these are the five I have setup for the five horses I have right now. Actually it is four right now because I sold the fifth one as he was only here for training and resale. That is why the snaffle one is missing reins.

I have a plant farm near me that gets starts by the pallet load and then they just burn their pallets so if you want some pallets you just let the manager know and he will pile up as many as you want to haul away. I take a flatbed trailer and load up fifty or more at a time and bring them home and use them for everything from setting hay on in the barn to cutting them up to use for various projects where I need wood and it doesn't have to be premium quality lumber.

This bridle rack I made out of one of those pallets and some 3/4" dowel rod. It came out looking like it was done on old barn wood but unfortunately my digital camera is so ancient you can't really tell that it turned out even better than it looks in the pictures. You are just going to have to take my word for it

Beautiful country! Looks like you have a lot of logging roads to ride along! Actually reminds me a lot of the riding we have up here - do you see much wildlife on your rides? Good job on the bridle rack - those old pallets do come in handy - we have made a few things (a wine rack included) out of old pallets.

The red horse is Skip. He is my best horse buddy and I ride him the most. Between him and my dog it's probably pretty close to tie for who is my best friend Actually the dog probably is because she likes to interact more than the horse does. He is friendly but he would rather graze than hang out unless I am giving him scratches, that he will hang out for sometimes rather than graze.

Yes, from my house north up into BC that is all there is, old gated logging roads and hundreds of miles of forest and mountains. There are a few off grid cabins along some of the rivers that are on long term leases from the state or the forest service but that is it. Most roads are gated or kelly humped so vehicles can't get on them. The road in the one video that I am coming back on when I pass a truck is actually a county road, it just isn't paved.

Yes, I see lots of wildlife on my rides, usually deer and snow shoe hare, sometimes grouse, turkeys and bear and every once in a while we see elk or a moose.

I made my saddle stands out of pallets too. They come in really handy for scrap lumber for various projects.

Definitely subbing! I love seeing other people's rides and their terrain. And the bridle rack is great!
