Why the name?

Ok - this is my first blog.....but I really love reading everyone else's so I thought - what the heck? I can do this....God knows I have lots to tell and everyone who knows me knows that I never quit talking.....LOL...
Anyway I guess I should start by telling about myself and why the name for the blog. I am a horse lover.....by that I mean LOVER.....I love everything about them, their smell (right !!!), their coats, their eyes, their ears, their tails, their feet, but most importantly - The Ride.....
I consider myself and my hubby "The Bear" avid trail riders, by that I do not mean the best....I just mean we do it all the time - trail ride that is....LOL
Well I do have trouble staying in the saddle.....it has almost gotten comical.....Bear says he is making me a seatbelt....he says that all the time....whatever !! Anyway I thought the name for my blog was appropriate since I have come out of the saddle about 5 times in the last year. I even have pictures to prove it.....
I am a mother of two girls. They are 22 and 21 right now and they youngest "H" has just gotten married. Now that was something - be glad I started blogging after the wedding. I was a basket-case - not because of her getting married - I love "R" (who she married), but just all of the stress of getting everything organized.
Anywho.....I am on my second marriage....not don't think bad of me....I was married 11 years the first time and am going on 10 this time.....so it was just one of those things. I will be married to Bear forever.....I luff him !!!!
Bear is a farrier - he shoes horses.....how convienent.....for me anyway you think....oh no - just like being married to a plumber - who sink is always clogged.....I have to beg to get the boys shod. We always do last minute shoeing before we go on a trail ride.
My horses names are Chance and Jag. Chance being Bear's horse - TWH chestnut with flaxen mane and tail. Mine being Jag - a Spotted Saddle horse who is dapple grey and white. I named him Jag because he is my first gaited horse and it was like riding in a Jaguar....LOL
I will post pictures of them both when I figure out how....
Stay tuned as I will be recapturing some of my falls.....still explaining the title.....and also tell you about some of my crazy friends.....believe me you will want to be here for that.....
Love and kisses - until next time.....
