We went out to the stable today to try and retrieve some of My Pea Gravel...but it had snowed yet again!
So instead, my husband and I did my stall mucking, and on the way back to the paddock I saw Vinnie doing his "mouthy Vinnie thing" with Sport.
Sport does not complain much...a few random kicks here and there, but as you can see, once Vinnie is latched on-that is it. He sticks like glue, often ripping blankets, to Sports mom's dismay.
Though you can not see in the video below for the caked mud, there is an overlay rubberised sheet atop Sport's normal blanket. Vinnie's mom had to buy it for Sport because of the damage he caused the last blanket!
I am sure that the antics would have continued , but my cell phone rang, and that made them stop.

As they brewed our caffeine delights and warmed our chosen baked delicacies for the final 15 minute drive to the lush trail system, I stepped out to a sky walk bridge that showed the buildings perched just above the lower Silver creek. The town of Silverton is quaint with it's historic buildings and Victorian beauties.
This wonderful waterway behind the buildings was enchanting with
the hues of gold above. It gave us the proper send off to meet with the rest of the group from CTRF.(Christan trail riders fellowship)
We had a glorious time riding in the lush rain forest type setting for the end of season.

To My friends here that know me well ,or have visited and grasped the essence of my spirit towards my Mare and life in general; I am setting off on an extended trail ride ,"figurativley".
I will return on a brighter day, out of winters chilly grasp and far from an ever contentious wind that has blown treacherously my way.
The mare and I bid you happy trails !!! I will check in for watering hole conversations~

My mare and I had been grooming in her outdoor stall. She had her precious hay bag full of yummys, and that is usually all it takes for her to be content. She is thin skinned and does not go in for much grooming..she wiggles and squirms and moves all over the place.Just about as annoying to me, as it must be for her.
This day, I thought she wanted a drink, after about 20 minutes of eating, and normally, even grooming won't make her hesitate to come on back to the stall for more precious hay......not this time.....So I am in the stall, making all the "come on back and get a treat" noises, like forever. And she is in the back part of her pasture the entire time. Absolutely no intention on coming back!
"Uh- maybe she won't see me all the way back here"
"Oh, she will understand...all this 1/2 in grass to eat"

I leave you with a funny( to me at least) video that was me filming on horse back, a Silver Creek Falls ride last time we camped there... I decided to turn around and film the girls riding behind me. One of them decided to follow me in a Circle dance pattern and I responded accordingly- Then, my mare on the otherhand decided to add a move unscripted!

We also encountered a band of crows, making the rounds overhead with loud conversation as they circled and landed in the forest canopy. It was nice to see the quarter moon above too. Thanks for visiting my world today...please move around the world and visit more friends at the
My World site!
Have a good day all!

Sometimes we were interupted by the occasional flock of adolescent like crows barking and chattering on, like teens in a crowd.
For the stresses I am under right now, it has been just what any doctor would have prescribed for me! And
Wa has been extra calm. I wondered if something was up with her earlier in the week ,when I found her water trough thickly iced- late day- and she was a bit tucked up...worried me, but all seems to be in right harmony now.
Today's ride trumped the weeks already high marked times, by us in a very nice rounded trot. I was changing my posting stride every 3rd stride on the rising instead of sitting. My sister taught me to do it for better balance..as you can not do it unless you are over your leg. It takes a bit of concentration and rhythm out on the uneven trails. We were in that rhythm and I looked over to see movement of deer were bounding and trotting, almost with us as we strode by ...they stopped short and we continued on without the slightest snort or jump ,this day.
I think that was the ONLY time today I heard sounds, unnatural to the forest deep....Me laughing heartily!
