I Am Too Tired to Think of a Good Title
Tiredness, always a problem with Multiple Sclerosis, has me in its unrelenting grasp. Last weekend my husband and I went to Raleigh, just two and a half hours away, to see my youngest son and grandson. We stayed overnight so I got to rest before the drive home, but when I got home I was too tired to write my blog, and today, a full week later, I am having trouble finding enough energy to do anything. I am managing to ride and I am VERY…Continue

We have had 6 ½ inches of rain down here in the last two weeks, and of that 5 inches fell this week. All the ponds, creeks and rivers are swollen, there are puddles everywhere, the horses’ winter coats are getting all muddy and matted, and I think every single bug on my land is trying to get into my house to get out of the wet.

Will the horses like me riding them better? Only time will tell, of course.

The Drought is Over—At Least for Now
And all this rain is messing up my riding.
We were in a drought this summer, getting just enough rain to keep the grass growing somewhat and keep some of the crops from dying, but the ponds, lakes, streams and rivers were down several inches. Our local river, the Rocky River, lived up to…Continue
