A Week of Forgetting Things
The heat has definitely arrived here in NC, not full summer heat and humidity yet but it has been a challenge living without air-conditioning. Bless the person who invented the electric fan! I have managed to stay cool enough so I am staying stable physically with my MS, but my memory is not as good as it is during cooler weather.
So Wednesday I forgot to do my final check-off of all the stuff I take to my riding lesson and forgot my Corrector…Continue

Mia Patiently Tries to Explain Something to Me This Week
When I was riding Mia on Friday I had a great time. She continued to keep contact with her JP single jointed full cheek snaffle, reaching out confidently and not flinging her head or curling up when I made a mistake with my hands. When I made a mistake with my hands she would start inverting, but when I corrected myself and sent her on she would reach out again and accept the bit. She was quite alert and looked around…Continue

I Give Eli a Helpful Hint
The heat has started to come to North Carolina, and due to thousands of dollars of unexpected expenses plus expected money not coming in I am having to adjust to living without air-conditioning this summer.

So I am not doing as well as normal, but that has been the story of my life this year.

It was on Mia that I triggered my hip bursitis the first time. After a nice ride walking around with no problems I decided it might be a good idea for me to practice gripping…Continue

Gnats, Mugginess, Slippery Breeches, and Even More Gnats
Down here in central southern North Carolina we are now paying the price of our plentiful winter rains. The gnats are truly horrible. Debbie has ALL of her 30 plus horses in face masks and she asked me 1) if gnats are poisonous since she has swallowed so many of them this year, 2) if gnats are good for anything, and 3) if there is any other critter that eats them. I could not give her an answer, I guess I better start…Continue
