Chilly Blanketed Bareback Ride

So the other day the baby was napping and even though it was windy and cold and I had stalls to do, I went and fetched Twister and rode him around the yard WT some. He was so good. I was completely saddle sore the next couple days though. I guess I need to ride more!!!

We still don't have the poly in the barn because it's been like Noah's Ark weather around here so the guy that would go get it and deliver it can't because he'd just bogged in our yard...... It rained so much then froze so fast we can't even use the eurosizer because the water never drained/dried and now it's clumpy and hard.

Dis mah poneh

This weather sucks. Is it May yet???

And going on 2 weeks ago now maybe I rode Rascal. We thought someone was coming to look at him then they were no show/no calls. I hate when people do that. If you don't want to see him anymore just freakin tell me! He was really good and super boring. Which is a big reason my person doesn't want to have him as HIS horse anymore... he likes a horse with zest. And seeing as Twister has been commendeered he has to find his own. If Curtis' tendon doesn't get an ok from the vet in August/September Curtis will be his new riding horse. He has zest. Buck you off and and leave you on your ass zest.

someone buy him pleaseeeeeee

Happy New Year and All That

I haven't posted in a while because nothing has happened post-worthy.... at least as it relates to horses anyways. It's been about 2 months since I've been on a horse. Way. Too. Long. We've been working on the barn and have the poly in the eurosizer but none yet in the barn and my person already scraped out all the dirt that was in there. So now I have to wait until we put the poly in the shed row. Which means it has to warm up enough to 1-be able to get one more load (so it can't be frozen) and 2-warm up enough to turn on the stupid bobcat thing that never freaking works.......

2 hour trail ride in early Nov. My first long ride since the baby!
Twister was awesomeeeee

Perpetually starving and can't go 2 hours with out
eating something!

after the ride, SJ got pony rides on Lily

Twister of course feels neglected and unloved. He especially hates this cold weather and the snow, all 3" of it that's basically blown away already.

handsome <3

Dr Philan has been at Turfway. He raced New Years Eve and was pulled up and the jockey couldn't even explain why he did that. We're thinking he might have bled a bit and quit running. But at Turfway at 10pm you can't even get a vet to scope your horse. He is racing again Friday. Our little Canadian horse is super cute though, and a pisser.

Curtis is still on stall rest, especially when it's cold. He walks in the machine and goes back up in his stall. He's not a fan. But it's the only to way to make sure he lets his tendon heal. It LOOKS really good. but that doesn't mean it's healed.

I have MLK day off and I am really hoping maybe E and I can go for a ride if the weather doesn't totally suck. I need saddle time for my mental sanity.

practicing ;)
