    eeyore - I have that shirt!! got in a short ride at marquette on Sunday. I couldn't believe there wasn't more mud there after all the rain. But it was a great day to ride.

    Eeyore - yep going down this year. I don't think our spots are close by, so NO midnight horse wake-up calls. Tell Indigo he'll have to visit others. But just in case, I'll leave a lantern on for him, or you!! I think I'll be going down on Friday early in the morning; I don't have to many vacation days left - so have to use them sparingly.

    trails4me - where are you camping over Columbus Day Weekend? There are a few of us who will be at Bay Creek. I just love long weekends and Shawnee in the fall. Can't wait to get back down there. Trailhoss2 - thanks for sharing the pictures. Makes me almost wish it was October - NOT! [ROTFL]

    TR - we rode out on the yellow through the campground - didn't make it to the, what I called the overflow day lot until almost If you were camping, we really didn't meet up with anyone from there. It was just me and another rider. I was on my TWH Silver (he's a black) and he was on a Foxtrotter. I think we rode every part of the trail. Got to see a momma dear and her baby - they were relatively brave. They didn't seem to want to move off the trail. I also caught a glimpse of One Huge Snapping turtle. It was on the side of the trails that has the real nice creek crossing by the overflow lot. I kept thinking it was a really "flat" rock - until it moved. Yikes! [shocked] If I head up there again, I will be sure to PM you. eeyore - hope you ride this weekend - I am taking this one off - have to help my brother shoot pictures of a wedding - and a ton of other family stuff. Maybe next weekend -

    Hey Trail Rider - You were up at Panther Creek? So was I! Just rode on Sunday for what was supposed to be just a couple of hours. We ended up riding from 10:30 - 4:30. Got off the horses for a few stops. Took some time to look at some of the vista's and then ate lunch at 5. LOL The weather was perfect! Wish I would have known you were going to be there, I might have finally met you instead of meeting in here. Hope everyone else's weekend was just as wonderful

    checklist 1- coggins - done 2-trailer - done 3- shoes - on (both of us) 4- saddlebags - packed -done 5-cooler - at the ready 6- hay bags - at the ready 7 - WEATHER??????????? Can't wait to see everybody on the trails. I won't say that I'll hold my breath until I turn purple - I could be dead by the time the weather changes, but I have heard we might have some sunshine on Saturday. That might give us a 4 hour window. [Question] Welcome Suz!

    Sounds like the "hubby" is doing a great job on your trailer eeyore! so excited for you and I can't wait to see it. I am trying to plan ahead for some changes to mine, yes I know I haven't had it all that long, but there are just somethings that aren't working for me. So keep me informed about Bob's for cabinets, I might need to add one and add shelving to 2 of the ones' that I have. The rain today caused me to take almost 2 hours to go home. I want it to go away so that I can get some riding in this weekend without drowning in mud. I have a sinking feeling that this is a repeat of last springs start. I HOPE I am wrong.

    Hey eeyore, congrats on the new trailer. I took mine down on Saturday to have some maintenance and some new stuff added. Won't get it back for 2 weeks so I am just taking it easy with the riding. I finally got on Silver today - 8 weeks since I got to ride. The knee held up good - good thing I have a great surgeon. Can't wait to meet up on the trail somewhere! We will both be ready RIDE!

    I made it to the Fair - shopped till I wanted to die. Found most of the good bargains on Sunday. Missed seeing the rodeo, but heard it was a lot of fun. I didn't see you EEyore - sorry I missed you. Hung out with some friends who were selling horses. Kind of used it as a resting spot. Got home on Sunday and back to work. They tell me there is no rest for the wicked (LOL, I must have been really evil in a previous life). The knee held up really good, only 2 more weeks until I hope I am totally released. Then I can get back to riding. I did fall in love with a cute little Appy colt. I had to keep away from it. price was right, but I just don't have anywhere to keep him until he's ready for training. Someday!! Take care all.

    CodysAppy-let me know when you want to trail ride; a friend of mine lives down your way so maybe you could horsey pool! [Jump] Greensfelder is close for you too! Eeyore - I see the doctor Thursday for the second post-op check up - he is just going to have to listen to me when I tell him I have to be able to ride by the second weekend of April. some of us are heading to the Ozark Trail for a few days. I figure I will be riding in a knee brace this summer - that should feel real good in this Missouri valley humidity! Silver is supposed to be getting his shots, coggins etc sometime in the next 2 weeks so he will be ready to ride before me. I hate when that happens. Take care all - see ya on the trails - whenever I get there. Save me a spot for parking!

    Hey there Eyeore! Long time since I've been on. Work is crazy. I am so excited Wolf is opening. Can't wait to get a weekend up there. Heading up to the fair this weekend to see if I can find anything on my shopping list. I want to see if I can get into the gaited clinic on Saturday to see what it's all about. I got out to the barn Sunday - I haven't been able to drive since my surgery and I finally got sort of released so I had to go and get some barn time. Can't ride for awhile yet, but it was just good to get up there. Kim and Nick got a new trailer a couple of weeks ago - so they are really getting excited to camp, camp and camp. Are you going up to the fair any of the days? I heard the weather is supposed to be half way decent so maybe it'll be a great get together! Silver does go with water crossings, it's the mud he can't stand - Last summer he actually led a group over a nice size creek, water running nice and smooth; 20 feet later would cross a mud puddle. All I could do was laugh!!

    I think he got them at Walmart last season, like me. I have also seen those charis at Bass Pro and Cabela's. More pricey there though. Have a ton of fun in TXs. I will miss going there. My job realigned and no more travel to TX for me. Darn, I ain't gonna find a cowboy there anymore. You'll have to do the looking for me - K?

    eeyore - sounds like you have had a couple of fun nights watching your "kids". I have decided that I really hate Illinois weather. But since the only places I would consider moving to have had even more ice - I guess I'll stay put. Got out to the barn a couple of nights this week. Usually a 20 minute drive turned into an adventure. Silver was acting like a crazy man in the paddock. Took me 15 minutes to get him inside to the stall. Oh well, I needed the exercise. I hope to get the horse fair, as long as I don't have to travel the week before. I heard the same thing about the new Gov. Thank heavens the other one is out! I want spring weather and I want it now! Talk to you all soon!
