A Little Weekend Visit

I drug my lazy (not-feeling-so-good) carcass out today and made a little trip over to visit with ACountryCowgirl and her hubby. Actually getting out and going for a little drive made me feel a whole lot better. I think it's the weather. It's been fairly decent here...Spring is definitely in the air, but the ground is so muddy I have no place to ride...so I'm a little depressed about that.

I don't think I ever got around to telling you guys I got to meet M&E last fall when they moved out to this neck of the woods.

When I read they were moving this way and a little worried about the housing accommodations for their ponies, I let them stay at my place for a couple of weeks. The horses that is.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to see much of each other over the winter and I didn't do so good at getting my new friend located any nearer to me in this last move either. :(

They are getting settled into their new place and believe me...It's a whole lot better than the other place they almost moved into! My gut was telling me THAT place was aalllll wrong, even before the psycho landlord incident.

They fed me yummy chili, some absolutely delish cornbread and even dessert.

So where are the pics?

I dunno...I remembered to take my camera, but as is always the case, M and I get to visiting and laughing and all thoughts of taking pics go out the window. Alas, maybe one of these visits, one of us will remember to take out the camera and snap a few pics. Anyway, it ended up being a really nice day and I am really glad I went.

I have a few barrel racings over that way, so there is no doubt I will be coercing M to come with me whenever possible. She is a hoot and it will be nice to have another horse-person along. Now if the weather would just cooperate a little, so I can get back to riding...

Sounds like you had a great visit. The thought of chili and cornbread makes my mouth water.

Hope your ground dries out soon. That frustration of not getting to ride is doing it's thing on me too. If something doesn't give soon, I'm going to need a straight jacket.

I feel lousy too and I even had a 3 day weekend and 50 degree weather and never got out to ride :(

That pony from the last post? Too cute - and I'm glad he's not in my neighbors' pasture 'cause I can already picture Wyatt on him...

haha I do the same thing so many times, when I get home wishing I had taken some pictures. Ah well, there are pics in your memory.

Aww that gelding is adorable! I think he would look good in your pasture :)
