Mica

I realized I hadn’t written much about Mica lately.  He continues to do well.  I haven’t done a thing with him, in fact, he’s been spending a lot of time up.  He is a trouble magnet.  If there’s trouble to be found, he’s in it.  He’s a free-spirited little thing.  Gel continues to tolerate him […]

Working …

Well, I guess I’m back in the work force.  Not exactly where I thought I’d be, but I guess you end up where you are supposed to be, at least for the time being. I have been working in the back of the house prepping.  I’ve never handled so much food at one time.  It’s […]

What’s that noise?

What’s that wet stuff falling out of the sky????  RAIN!!!!!  Glorious, glorious rain!!!!  We could get two to three inches between today and tomorrow.  I hope that will help to improve the condition of the pastures.

A trail riding fool!

Got back from my ride with Trophy and two friends around 2:00.  What a rush!!!  He’s a trail-riding-fool.  Of course, every log, stump and rock was a rabid-gray-Arabian-eating-monster, but I’m used to him now and I can laugh at his foolishness.  You’d think that if he was so “scared” of the monsters on the trail […]

What a difference a day makes!

I think I’m simply more sensitive than I need to be.  I wrote about the Western saddle that I had purchased that didn’t fit Trophy well.  I was obsessed with finding something else that would fit him … a tough thing given I needed to find a saddle with a wide tree, short skirts and […]
