I wasn’t gone for very long.

All I needed to do is run to the store for some milk and fruit. On my way home I realize my husband is behind me in his car, on his way home from work. So we both get out of our cars and what’s the first thing out of his mouth?

No it wasn’t hi honey, how was your day. It was, is that your horse on the other side of the fence?

Oh don’t be silly!

Sometimes it just looks that way with the angles at the corners and such…

Wait a minute…

I don’t think this has anything to do with angles…

I’m thinking it may have to do with tension!

Apparently the ground is pretty greasy when you want to run and play.

…and who was the horse that ended up on the other side?

Sora!! I’m not sure who started it or what all happened but she was the only one with a mud bath. Well a dried mud mask! About 2 inches thick in some spots and only on her left side.

Nothing a little elbow grease and a shedding comb couldn’t take care of.

Make that allot of elbow grease and about 20 minutes of working through the dried mess.

So I’m thinking she’d been out for quite awhile and I’m a bad mama for not doing a security check before heading down the road.

Sora’s mama, Feather stood and watched the whole time.

While Whinny attempted to knock over the bag of horse treats…

and…

succeeded!

Still, this is my life and I wouldn’t give it up for any amount of money.

Donations are always welcome though. Winking smile

Until next time…Appy Trails.

I’ve been on medical rest and restrictions since December and it’s really setting in! No riding and no heavy lifting, among other restrictions. Let’s just say it’s hard to be a woman some days.

So all you men out there, reading this…go buy your wife or girlfriend a nice gift tonight just to say thank you. Thank you for dealing with your womanly parts and I totally don’t mind your mood swings as I realize they are a direct result of “said” parts. No I’m not saying your moody. I uhm…just saying every aspect of you is loved and cherished.  I realize and take notice of all the little things you do around here that make this place run. No I’m not saying you do “little” around here. I uhm….just saying…uhm…

Oh…where was I?

Oh yea about me.

Lets just say mama had a procedure and now mama is now on hormones, and mama has cabin fever because it’s winter but she has to do allot of resting and she’s REALLY getting bored!

DSC_1829Oh sure, I have my little helpers. Who can’t feed themselves or let themselves outside and need to be entertained all day and want me to throw the ball all day and decide to chase the cat on the spur of the moment, just as I’m drifting off into a nap…but the cat starts it.

DSC_1784Although I think they’re kind of bored as well. Don’t let this one fool ya…

DSC_1814Surfing, surfing, surfing…and there really isn’t anything on stupid TV despite all the stupid channels…Hey look that lady just won on Card Sharks! I don’t remember that game show. It looked like it was from the 80’s to me. But the host reminds me of the guy with that skinny microphone from the Nationwide commercials. Those commercials are funny.

I just had to get 2 mugs. For travel and home.

…I need to take a walk.

DSC_1819It’s a gray day again.

DSC_1824And Punxsutawney Phil said he saw his shadow which means 6 more weeks of winter.

But wait a minute!!

DSC_1821 This is Wisconsin, not Philadelphia… I’m going to go with Sun Prairie’s Jimmy the groundhog, who didn’t see his shadow. Looks like an early spring is on it’s way to me!

DSC_1836Ok, back in the house now…and what do I see? The Man From Snowy River is on!!

Gotta go!

Until next time…Appy Trails! Smile
