Ghosting it forward before I get the heck out of dodge !!

Well about to leave on the trip - busting some booty to get my desk cleaned up, but of course I had to do some last minute stopped by Trail Riding Cowgirl and she has tagged me to Ghost It Forward......
So here goes.....


1) Have a Ghostly Image to pass along

2) Tag three people on your blog, with links to their blogs. Tell about what great folks they are, or offer to send them a Ghostly Treat.

3) Include a link to Ghosting It Forward in your blog.

I looked and looked through my pictures and really could not find anything that "looked" ghostly (I will try to get some this weekend), but I did find this picture that was taken at Stinkin Jim's Horse Camp of The Witch Dance Trail. Now you will have to go read about it, it is very cool....

We are riding the trail here and I took a picture of some riders ahead of picture I think.

As for passing it oh my....everyone has already done this.....who do I pick?

Maybe I can just pick 3 that have already been picked, but I can just say something nice about them.....

1. Mrs. Mom at Oh Horse Feathers - You have to know how much it means to me to know that I am always in your always seem to come by just when I need to hear from you. How do you do that? I so enjoy your posts about the hoof......cause you know I like to act like I know what I am talking about at the dinner table with Bear...Mr. Farrier !! Thanks and hugs to you.

2. Train Wreck at Cowboys and Sunsets - I love your photos and drawings and such, and especially love the one I own. You are the cutest thing, and am so proud that you found your cowboy - who is a mighty fine one I might add. I just love coming by to visit you. You also know when to come by and brighten my day. Hugs to you as well.

3. Lisa at Laughing Orca Ranch - You crack me up - you have the wildest posts sometimes.....From humping roosters to Poop talk....I love it and love you too. Thanks for being my bloggy friend. I love you painted girl she is sooooo pretty - reminds me of my most favorite horse Dixie....who I only sold because I went gaited. Hugs to you too girl !

I cannot forget my tagger.....Trail Riding Cowgirl at All Things Horse - I know I only had three to tag and am not tagging you back....just saying thanks for always coming by and saying nice things. I will continue to wish we could meet up and ride together - maybe after you move !! Thanks and hugs to you too.

Getting back to work, so I can finish up - can you imagine how much work I will have when I get back from 3 days off......eeeekkkkk!!! Not going to think about that until Monday night right before I go to sleep - or heck maybe not until Tues morning on the ride in...

Happy Trails - Love you all !!

Some call it "God's Country"

Some do call it "God's Country".....I just call it beautiful !!
We go to Tennessee - around the Townsend area every year. We usually stay 4-5 days and ride every day abotut 7-8 hours a day, and have a great time.
We are leaving on Thurs and will be back on Monday, and there are 12 of us going.
We stay at a great place, with a giant lodge with 2 hot-tubs....oh la la !! (Although I am white as a ghost and putting on my winter chunk already), but who cares - right ?
These are a couple of pictures I have taken over the years of us going up there.
This is what I will be doing a lot of -"taking pictures"......this creek bed is usually flowing, but this was during the big drought last all dried up. Thankfully we thought ahead and took water for the horses.

Look at the cabin and horses we are up high.
I know we going to one place that is one of the highest places along the Appalachian trail. My ears are already popping.... Everyone have a great week and weekend, and hopefully I will have lots of pictures to share when I get back.
This will be Rio's first trip to the Smokey's.....and hopefully the first of many !!!!

Happy Tennessee Trails

My sweet Stevie !!

This is especially for those sweet people who always ask about my sister, Stevie.
She is doing well and was at the horse show, bless her heart, when I got my first blue, she just cried so was so excited and happy for me.
Bless you all for keeping her in your prayers.
Love you !

A Few More Pics !!

What a day !!!!!

I have to say the show was a great success. I got 2-1st places, 1-2nd place and overall points for gaited classes.
I had a wonderful time, and my GREAT friends were there hollering for me and supporting me.
I think I like this showing thang !!!! I think Rio does too.
Jag went to his new home on Sunday - I gave the girl a 2 week trial with him, but she, her husband and son have already ridden him and they really really like him. Me too, but I just can't ride more than one, and I have stolen Rio from Bear !! LOL - and he tells everyone....
I have had to train new people for the past two weeks so hopefully after all of this I can catch up on everyone. I have not been commenting, but have been reading when I can.
Love you all
