Flash gets a B minus

I might have told you I have been taking Flash to pony land for trail rides.  Bull Run Hunt held a big trail ride at pony land, so I put Flash on the trailer to see if he could keep his cool with 30 other horses.  The answer:  mostly. He was a little nervous with […]

Underwater again

Well, I haven’t been doing a whole heck of a lot.  Only Flash left to ride, and most of the time we get rained out.  Yesterday I did manage to get him on a trailer and take him on a trail ride (only brief showers), and his inner mare made only a few short appearances. […]

Mystic Fever

“Flash” is an eight year old 16.2 hand gelding.  He is cautiously back up for adoption, but will need a special human.  He has trust issues, so will need a very experienced, patient rider.

Shoot me

I adopted Flash AKA Mystic Fever.  The grumpy thing.  He is less grumpy with me than anyone else, and he’s all I have left to ride, so I guess we are stuck with one another. Point of Glory failed out.  While he was a delight to ride in the ring, ALONE, if there was another […]

Ground poles are terrifying

If your name happens to be Flash.  I think his show name should be Forrest Freaking Gump.  I gave up last fall because a single pole on the ground was reason to throw one’s head in the air, run at it, and either jump way into the air or trip over it, depending on how […]

Today I am half a century old

Bleh.  Anyway, Tamio came out and finished trimming the herd.  Except for the ones we just can’t catch.  Fortunately, there aren’t many, but they are still annoying and make everyone else look bad.  We truly can’t get near them!  Even a three-legged horse can run faster than my ancient butt. Bleh again. Good news?  After […]
