I went out to the barn everyday except Friday and Saturday. Edgar is now feeding the horses and Biscuit is coming in when I go out there so no problems catching him. Today I gave them handsful of grass and hugged them up.
Kellie and I were going to ride today but it was raining this morning. I am sure the park was soaking wet. Dang...the woods are a choppy mess. Barry and I went down to the beach this afternoon and it would have been great to ride out there today. Nice cool breeze blowing and no mosquitoes. I had Barry drive down to the end of the highway when we got back on the road. I wanted to see what the washed out road looked like. We could get around the barrier easily on horses and ride that stretch. I would love to do that! I told Barry it would be a great ride to go from that section of McFaddin Beach all the way down to High Island. I think it is around 20 miles...In my dreams
The Tevis Cup was this weekend. It is the Superbowl of Endurance Riding. There were 3 riders from Texas! Wow. In my dreams I could ride in any endurance ride, much less the Tevis! Unfortunately, there was a horse that had to be put down due to a fall that injured its neck. The rider was ok but the horse had to be put down. I felt so bad for both horse and rider. The winning time was around 17 hours. Can't even imagine that!!! That is going a little less than 6 miles per hour but geez - that is pretty dang rough!! The winning horse cantered in and looked like he was ready for more. Congratulations to all the rider - to ride is to win.
