“Horse people are a different breed” (anonymous)

Fancy and Frances are leaving you a Wednesday vote.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful and cute friend Pixie Dust♥ We love you little girl♥

Many of you already do this, but I finally got up my nerve to do something different. I rode Fancy bareback for a few minutes. She was very lazy, but that is because we were in the coral. I did not worry for her laziness, because she did not buck me off, which I was very happy for and appreciated :~)
This was the first time in over 10 years that I have ridden bareback. I have never been able to mount without assistance. Can anyone help me to know how to mount without a block or something. I tried to jump up, that did not work. I tried to use her neck. That did not work. How do you do it? What do I need to do?

Thank you so much for stopping by to congratulate Prince on his hotd win! I had no idea when he last won so I didn't know that he was eligible again. It sure was a nice surprise to see his handsome face in the spotlight!

I actually got to see him that day and had a really nice ride. Was that really a week ago? I'm so sorry that my thank yous are so late! So much to do and so little time.

I rode him yesterday too and he was wonderful! Using our Eddie method he went over the jumps many times and he grew in confidence once he figured that they could go smoothly. I so enjoyed myself. It was such fun to jump with an enthusiastic horse.

And a couple of weeks ago I got to take him out driving. I've only done that a few times before. We had some guests and they wanted to see the horses so I got the cart out and hooked him up. I'm not entirely sure I used the right bridle (?) but it seemed to work and he didn't complain. I was surprised at how responsive he was. He was so obedient and listened very well. We went at a flat out gallop several times and always he would slow when I asked him. I'd like to drive him again sometime. But in the meantime, I'm hooked on the jumping.

Pippin is doing great and I've taken him out for quite a few drives. He's always good in harness so no surprises there. I just love taking him out in the evenings and now that the weather has FINALLY warmed up a bit it's just so beautiful outside. The valley is green and the wildflowers are blooming. The mountains still have snow so that makes a very pretty contrast.

How is everything there? It was great to hear from you again. I hope you thoroughly enjoy your weekend. Here's a vote for you and thanks again for stopping by with congratulations for Prince.

Another day at home. Hoping that I will feel better by the end of the day so I can head out to the barn. The sun hasn’t risen yet but it looks like another dreary day. Oh well. But I finally won Whinny Warz! LOL.

Hi to all. Hope everyone's doing well, animals, too. Rick's doing so good. Hard to believe he was in such a horrible accident. The day before the accident, he had brought hay home. Sadie was out of the corral. After unloading the hay, he started driving the pickup toward where he had the trailer parked to hitch it up. He was taking it into town the next morning to loan it to someone so they wouldn't have to rent one. When he pulled forward, Sadie started running after the pickup and then ran around to the front shaking her head no. Austin and I laughed as Rick stopped and asked her what her problem was. Thought about it last night. Do horses have premonitions? She was probably just being her silly self. Prayers, hugs and a vote.

Q: What do you get when you cross a bunny with a spider?
A: A harenet.

Candy who?

Candy Easter Bunny carry all dose treats in one basket?

21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”

26 Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.
So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” 28 But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.

I went out to test my new towing capabilities. It was so windy. When the wind blew it was very cold and when the wind was still, it was very warm. But, there was more wind than not. And you could hear the howl of the wind. So, I feed my girl Fancy and piddled in the yard for a short while and called it a day. I am still excited to try my towing capabilities, but on a better day. How is the weather in your back yard this weekend?

Austin and I put the tarp up. It was too long, so I folded it in half length wise. I hope if Sadie doesn't tear it down, the dust storms and high winds won't, either. It's secured with nails and twine. I was careful not to make any holes in it. ........Anxious to find out who our April HOTM is. All 3 runners were great. Love and a "have a beautiful horsey weekend" vote.

Had a nice little ride on Sadie. today. Thinking about putting the tarp up on the west side of the shade. Afraid Sadie will tear it down. She's a busy body and loves to get into things that don't concern her. Teaching her the word NO. I have to use it on her alot..... Prayers, love and a vote.

How are you doing? I'm sorry I haven't been around this week. I caught a really nasty case of the stomach flu but I'm almost completely better now.

I missed Pippin for three whole days while my sister was taking care of him. I definitely went through Pippin withdrawals. Normally I see and feed him several times a day and take him out for a run or something almost every evening.

As for Melian, my dog, she wasn't too concerned. I woke up at 6am on Monday with excruciating pain from stomach cramps and extreme vomiting. I was writhing on the floor for an hour unable to sit up and drifting in and out of consciousness. And what does Melian do? She thinks, "Oh, mama is dying. I guess that means the bed is mine!" The little snot! hehe She jumps up from her bed on the floor and takes mine! I can just see her saying in the event of my early demise that SHE gets the bed!

Perhaps it was too early in the morning because later on she complained loudly to me about how upset she was and I did finally end up with lots of kisses. Guilty kisses...?

Anyway, I've driven Pippin now and it felt good to get out. He got exercise, the dogs got to run alongside, and I got to be lazy and enjoy it.

Thanks for all your comments on YouTube! I'm so glad you enjoy Pippin's movies. I've seen some of yours on HC and I really like them too! How is Batman settling in? Are you going to make a page for him? Leaving you a vote.

PS I uploaded a few photos I took last weekend of the super moon onto Pippin's page.
