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. […]

Wow. All or nothing.

I have not moved a horse in a century, as everyone was looking for a high performance horse. All of a sudden I get a bunch of calls for companion animals.  The guy I spoke to this afternoon didn’t even care if it cribbed!  “Aw, honey, that ain’t nothing.”  Whoa.  I guess I need to […]

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 […]

Bleh again. Good news?  After […]

Update to the 10 Dec post that never posted.

Go figure.  Looked fine on my end, but I start poking around and see (draft) in fine print somewhere in a corner.  Okay.  So here is an update: It looks like I might get the puppy after all.  The breeder decided she would rather have the female.  So, paws crossed, everybody! Riding was put on hold […]

I know, I am totally delinquent

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY THIS DID NOT POST ON 10 DECEMBER, BUT HERE YOU GO.   I just get tired of the darn computer stuff.  Besides, it never does what I tell it. So, on the puppy front, I almost had a puppy.  Put down a deposit and everything, but puppy mama only had […]
