I am going to trail.
It sounds like Stude will show?
Glad to her the ponies are better. How did you deal with the founder?

Pilot is feeling much better but trying hard to still behave.

Have a great weekend! ...

Not much happening.
A light rain shower this morning.
Made rattlesnake hunting a no go.
Saw it again yesterday when we went to feed the weaning calf.
It was probably close enough for a strike by the time I saw it but it went under the shed ...

The weekend went by too fast.
Saturday I got to see our first Longhorn calf being born.
This one belongs to us. Wasn't close enough to determine for sure, but I think a heifer.
The last is a cross from the neighbor's corriente bull.@ ...

The doctor informed Pilot after reviewing the CT scan that he had actually broken 4 not 3 spinal processes.

We had 20% chance of rain yesterday and it rained all day.

Plan is to feed the horses this morning and then walk and do maintenance on our best trail which we have not been on since some time last Fall. Tomorrow I plan to take Fancy on the trail provided I don't run into any major issues today. The wife is ...

My friend and I took the boys for a really long ride today.
We rode up to R&C's to check on things. They will be back from a trip tomorrow.
We saw 8 hogs, not good.

And since we were halfway down the road towards the cabin we decided ...

A day to remember what many sacrificed so that we can live as comfortably as we do. So often we take our freedoms for granted and we forget the ones who made it possible.
Now, on a lighter more horsey note, I took Whisper out on the road late yesterday ...

Watched The Preakness Saturday. Another interesting race. Like many others I was fixated on Bodexpress after he threw his rider, who was thankfully unhurt. He just kept on running, in fact, he did the whole track TWICE. As the race was taking place my ...

Ssso tired.
The rain held off last evening so C and I snuck in a ride.
I wasn't feeling like getting on the big old boy Tex and chose Sarcee.
Of course she decided to be in a running mood.
It was fun anyway. C wanted to leg up a horse ...

With the days longer and a couple of days of no rain, I have been leaving the horses out longer. Less cleaning in the stalls that way and they are free to do as they wish outside. A major rain event moved in around dark last night. Guess another day in ...

Thunderstorms all around us.
It sounded like a big one was going hit us about 3am this morning but it slid past.

Once again we have rain. I guess there are parts of the country that need it. This is currently not one of them. The mares are loving the green grass coming on. Whisper does not like rain much so they are in today. If it warms up they might go out. @ ...
