Ta Dah.....


Today is bigger than I thought!

First let me say this is my 200th post, guess that makes me a blabber mouth!

Second we have a winner!

Thank you all for playing the Birthday game with me. I know on your Birthday you usually get gifts not give, but hey , anyone who knows me knows I am a giver!

Do you want to know who won?

Of course you do!

A great gal who thought her first two choices were best but were already taken
so she chose another and guess what she was right!


No, I am not freaked out by this, I was actually born on Friday the 13th at 3:05 in the afternoon. I was 10lbs 2ounces and I was the sixth child and last in my family.
Guess they saved the best for last! Ha....

And our winner is Gecko our down under friend.

Be a sweet and tell me what size your wrist is and if you like any of my cuffs in particular on the website. If not I will custom make you one! I have your address
from the "Annie" trip.

For the rest of you clueless about "Annie" you will have to check out Gecko's blogs
to figure that out.

Now, I am going to respond to some comments from the last few posts.

Lets all get one thing straight here. Frankie is NOT white! He is a Perlino
and he has a white blaze on his face to further prove he is not white. Not a sore spot with me just more of a running joke here at home. Hubby says he does not like white horses and I keep telling him Frankie is not white!

I really ,really owe Mike Craig a whole lot of thanks for convincing me that this fella was the "one" for me and my family. If you go back and read earlier posts you will see I was uneasy about buying a young horse, not so much his color. So thank you Mike you were right and really do have a gift of matching people with horses.

He really isn't clean. Somehow those photos really make him look bright when in fact he is green and yellow and really smelly. I was thinking of bathing him today if it gets as warm as they say it is going to. If you look back at the trail riding post pictures you can actually see the manure stains on his butt that I cannot scrub off.

I truly am happy with him and see a long and healthy relationship for both of us ahead. Thanks for riding along.

Happy trails........

Hey there! Good to hear from you! You'll be saying that (about Frankie not being white) for as long as you own him! LOL! We have the same with Romeo. People just don't know much about Perlino genetics. At least you're not getting the he's albino thing or he's a paint! What are his bloodlines anyway, just always interested in it? I guess I look at it as a good way to educate people if they're open to it....most people already have their opinions formed though and are unteachable about the subject. I had a trainer (one we both know) tell me you never see light horses survive in the desert where they all started of course....they die off and are weaker. That's hog wash and besides, we're not in the desert! I've found people love them or hate them. We hope to bring Romeo to at least one of the three shows to just haul and get used to the sites....Rochester, I think since it's the closest....so you'll have Perlino support there...you won't have to be a queen alone!

Love your ongoing trail riding blog. Happy trails is what I'm always wishing for riders and horses, also. In order just to share information that could possibly be of help, I want you to know about Basic Training for a Safe Trail Horse with subtitle of Eliminating the Fear Factors. It is a small paperback that is especially suitable for trail riders who keep a horse (or horses) at home and want to learn some secrets about relating to their horse in a way that makes that horse a true companion! It is newly available on Amazon.com
