you think YOU are confused.....


So maybe I shouldn't have said that I will just plan not to ride.  Maybe I should have said that I will just plan to do whatever.  Maybe the word PLAN should be deleted from my vocabulary. 

I left the house today a little before noon.  I even managed to remember to take Nina's beet pulp with me.  I forgot it yesterday and had to give her an extra ration of Nutrena Senior so that she had something to snack on.  She said that was ok, anytime, really. 

It was cloudy, a little windy and cold when I left my house.  I drove into sunshine, a mild warm breeze and temps that had me peeling off my jacket fast. 
I was wearing jeans that aren't comfortable to ride in, mud boots, no half chaps in sight and Nina's bridle is hanging on a door knob at home because I am going to thoroughly clean it (uh-huh).   To top it off there were exactly TWO people riding in the indoor and both can steer. 
There are some weather and scheduling faeries somewhere close by just laughing their shiny little asses off.

  1. Haha, don't you love the weather? Yesterday when I was tacking Cadence up there were total whiteout conditions outside. By the time I was riding Bailey, it was almost pleasant out. That said, the weather men did predict it'd be above zero. They lied.

  2. The way things have been lately I just say "I plan to ride when I can".

  3. Oh Colorado...you are so silly. Did you at least get a chance to work on ground manners with her? I know you said that you wanted to reinstall some of that. Hopefully it stays warm enough for you to get a good ride in in the next few days!

  4. yes, her ground manners are pretty much back to good. I think she just lost her brain for a while.
