He came home showing me this huge huge cut on his head, right above his forehead, in the hairline.
"Look where I got kicked by a horse today"
OMG - I almost died......I scares me to death sometimes, especially when he goes and does a horse when no one is home.
I freaked out....."What horse??? What horse???"
He then proceeded to tell me he was working on his four-wheeler and hit his head on the footpeg.
I was ready to beat his booty !!!!
He thought it was funny......I did not !!!!!
We are supposed to have beautiful weather this weekend.....and he wants to work around the house.....not me - I want to ride.
Maybe we can split the difference - I will work Sat and we can ride Sunday !!!
Everyone have a great weekend !!

I was really disappointed even though we could still ride on Saturday, I wanted to camp all weekend. I knew if we rode Sat and came home then we probably would not ride again Sunday. I was jonesin' for some ridin' !!!!!
Just then.......Bear said...."Let's just go to KC".....www.kcranchalabama.com.....WOW!!! I was major game and we got the dogs and hopped in the truck.......Called 2 couples that were supposed to camp with us at Coleta and they were game also.
We got up there around 5:00 - set up camp - built a fire and cooked some burgers.
Got up Saturday morning and what??????? FREEZING.......OK now - weather man said 50's.....where the heck is the sun? I don't think it got over 38 degrees.
I brought no long underwear and then realized I had left my gloves.......eeeekkkkk!
But we dressed the best we could.....thank goodness I brought my new flannel lined chaps....cooked some breakfast (yummy eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits).....made lunches and tacked up. Left out and rode for about 4.5 hours. Had a great ride. Came back - warmed a Boston Butt I had bought earlier in the week......sat around the campfire and laughed and laughed at V. V. is a friend - she is 26 years old and is the funniest little thing. Her horse's name is Sugar (same as my dog) but I call her Miss America and it is now sticking - everyone is calling her that. She is the prettiest thing, with big eyes and loooooonnnnnngggg eyelashes. She is chestnut with flaxen mane and tail like Chance.
Got up Sunday morning, ate egg sandwiches and tacked up again. Rode for about 3 hours and packed up.
Got home around 5:00 - it was so good to see the fillies - they really missed the boys....they were chasing the trailer as we were driving into the pasture to drop the boys.
Just a fantastic weekend......
I did take several pictures and will post them tomorrow......great waterfall shots.

Believe me - it look like a year to heal. I had a huge knot on my leg forever.....I think this happened in 2006.
Next was March of 2007...We were at KC Ranch....www.kcranchalabama.com which is my favorite place to horse camp and we go there often. A few of us had got together and went, we got there on Friday early afternoon and decided to hit the trail. After about an hour we all stopped to let the horses drink at the bottom of a hill. I was relaxed letting Dixie drink - had my feet out of the stirrips and all of a sudden - everyone else took off up the hill - full speed. Dixie freaked out, and spun around to take off. Well it almost slung me off, but I recouped - then she took off and when she did I got off balance again....Well not good - there was a tree...I hit it smack on my right eye, it knocked me off the horse, knocked me out - I had a seizure (small).....Bear came to the rescue, smacked me in my face and woke me up. All was fine...(????). I got on my horse and rode sideways back to camp. A few of the gang had already ridden fast back to camp and called the paramedics, when we got to camp - they were ready to check me out....however, I was not....I tee-teed in my pants so was major embarrassed so I headed to the trailer first. LOL. I felt I was fine and refused to go to the hospital, but cannot for the life of me remember anything about that weekend......(this is just what I was told)
Here is right after the accident and then the next morning. By the way - I rode the next day.
Scarey looking huh?
This is Dixie....and by the way - both accidents happened while riding her. Although neither was her fault.
All is well, I am kinda used to it. I am pretty sure I had a concussion, as I already had one the year before - coming off a horse.....it was pretty much the same feeling....Bear checked on me all night and I was fine.....like I said rode the next day - I just don't remember it...LOL
Last accident was this past summer and I do not have photo evidence, but was walking down a hill and Jag stepped his right front foot into a 12" hole. I just went off the left side, tried to hold onto his neck and not hit the ground, but I was pulling him down on top of me, so I let go so he could get out of the hole and I hit the ground, face and shoulder first.....ouch...I have a scar from that one.....
OK - now I have to tag 3 others.....and I am so new at this - I don't really know so here goes...Please don't kill me....LOL
Sorry ya'll, but I love reading your blogs....if that means anything.
OK - now someone tell me how to let them know they have been tagged.....
