Remember me? I haven't been online much the past month. I don't really want to talk about me but suffice it to say, not only have I been really busy but I've been sick too. I'm on my 11th week of antibiotics for a sinus infection and I may need surgery to finally fix it. Ugh!

Anyway, want I really wanted to write about was my amazing drive with Pippin yesterday. It was cold and he had lots of energy. I hooked him up to the cart over his yak like coat which looks really funny as the harness sinks in and then he has fur sticking out all over the place!

He hasn't been that energetic the past few weeks since he's not as fit as usual. I even considered removing parts of the harness for comfort and convenience but decided not to.

And a good thing too! We drove about 3 miles and galloped at top speed for at least mile! Wow, that was so exhilarating. He was probably running about 22mph which is pretty good for a 30" horse! Of course, Melian was running alongside like we were going sooooo slowly.

I was so very happy. Not just because it was a nice drive, but because Pippin was happy and energetic. I haven't had a drive like that since he got sick from those nasty enteroliths early this year.

This afternoon I took him for a 6 mile bike ride. He loved it and was very hungry when we got back!

And, Eddie's knees are looking great. The worst one is now almost completely healed. Only time will tell if the fur grows back though.

Did you get to ride this weekend? I hope you did or at least spent some time with your horses. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. Sorry no personal blogs tonight. My bed is calling out to me. Will try later!
