When I was a little girl and we lived in a suburb of NY , our parents took us every summer to a country hotel complete with wrap around porch and tons of acreage in upstate New York.. The Pine Hill
Arms where all the guests knew each other and it was more like an
annual family reunion. Located inthe Adirondack Mountains... there were
tons of hiking trails and a river flowed through the property.
The combination of the owners, other…Continue

Intentions were good today. I had planned on riding to the neighbors for the New Years Eve party. However, the wind is a whistlin' & it is cooooooooold. Almost froze my buns off fixin' fence & cuttin' wood. (If I could freeze my extra gut off, I'd do it more often :o).)
Alas, the mules get the day off. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

There must be some bloodhound in the mix for making mules. Nellie spent 1/2 the ride today with her nose to the ground sniffing tracks (when she wasn't nibbling sage) & then stopping to see what made them moving off. I don't miss out seeing the wildlife when she's in this mode. Lots of mule deer today (I love watching them run, it reminds me of Peppy Le Pew). I think I saw the neighborhood eagle soaring on the thermals. I didn't slow down to make sure as the wind picked up. Some gusts…Continue

Not having a trailer of any form for my horses, I have no idea about the niceties of transportation. Any place my ponies want to go, they have to walk...but not having any net service and spending all day fighting with my broadband provider did keep me from riding on Boxing Day. But on the 27th I had two sets of clients, so I had to ride whether I wanted to or not. Angie, I think that I can give you a good run for the turtle at this rate, since both… Continue

I rode Maggie today. She is still pretty young mentally. Put that together with her pony 'tude & wrap it in a mule package--she's a lot of work. Started out alone while Ali got ready. Then we headed out to visit with the neighbor about the New Years eve party. (We'll be riding over for part of that.) Then we wandered around checking out cat/kitten tracks. Mama didn't get turkey the other day, but she did bring kitten down to the pond to eat on a dead deer-yum.
Fairly warm today-IN…Continue

I took Noodle out by herself today. Spooked up many deer. Saw the cat tracks stalking turkey tracks. (I didn't follow to see if she got him, running out of time, but it will give me a mission tomorrow.) My neighbor has 3 game cameras, so we are going to try to get some pics of her & her kittens.
I don't think it made it to 20 degrees today.(I don't like to think about the wind chills.) Pretty cold out there. It's amazing what a little competition will make a person do. I know I…Continue

Ali rode with me today, so I decided to ride Nellie again so she would have a chance to go out with Misty instead of always going alone. Today was definately the coldest day for riding. I think it was around 17 when we started, 13 (wind chill 4) when we got back. Brrrrrrrr.
Stayed on the lower ground, so no cat tracks today. Did see where the mules & horses had wandered around this morning. They like to get out & cover some ground on their own.

OK.. did just a little over 6 miles, not bad for my almost 20 year old mare who had a foal this year! We are coming along slowly but will be back out doing rides this coming spring!
Here is the google loop we did today..

I rode Nellie today, about 6 miles. Covered some of the same area as yesterday & then some. Saw many more cat tracks. She really covered some ground last night.

I rode Noodle today. Just a short Christmas Day ride with my friend Ali & her QH Misty. My other mule Nellie & my donkey DW (yes, it does stand for what you think) came along for most of the ride. They did eventually head off on their own. We chose not to go with them as the sun was setting & it was getting chilly.
We had a lot of fun running around in the snow, zig-zaging around the cacti & circling trees.
The highlight of the day came on the way…Continue
