Just another rainy weekend...

Oh, so much rain…


The river was too high to cross on Saturday, so my sister and I rode Cruiser 3 trips on the hill. I rode Cole in the arena, and he was rather unenthusiastic. I took him down the hill to the river, and he did great.

Sunday, guess what? The river was even higher. So high that I probably can’t cross it today, either. To mix things up, my sister and I took Cole with Ranger. I haven’t ridden Cole with Ranger since last fall. Also, for the first time, I rode him up and down the hill three times. I have led him that many times—not ridden. He did great—only rushing down the hill a little bit. I rode him in the arena when we got back for about 20 minutes so we could do some trotting. His trot was more energized and he is moving straighter on the long sides of the arena.

I then took Cruiser on the hill 3 times with my boyfriend on Starry. Cruise seemed bored. We kept it at a walk because my boyfriend’s back was hurting.

It rained nearly all day. I didn’t get anything done in the yard all weekend, my boyfriend and I couldn’t hike (went to movies and saw “Bridesmaids” and laughed until we cried,) and I was subjected to basketball last night. I read while he watched the game.

The contractors are supposed to pour cement for our new driveway, but it may be raining too much.

I know I will miss the rain in August when my garden is withering in the drought that I’m sure we will have…

Sounds like everyone was great. :) I hope the rain takes a break and your boyfriend's back feels better soon.

Regarding your comment on Chrome's blog. I probably should have gotten a filly so I could dress her up all cute, but I just don't get along with mares at all. They are too unpredictable and moody (well the one I grew up with was). Besides my favorite color is that blue that I put on him and he looks handsome in it. It's just a good thing he doesn't know boys aren't supposed to wear ribbons hehehehe. He's so much fun. :D
