The top picture is a round pen on some property down the road.  It has wonderful horse facilities but not used.  It makes me so mad.

The bottom picture is my friend Pat riding Wrangler.  She had fun and I hope to get to ride with her again.

Bob is gone elk hunting with our horse Raven.  They will have fun.  He will be gone a week.

I rode Sage almost every day this week.  Today I rode her without anyone being here. She was a little hesitant but we did it.  I was pretty excited about that.  Its the first time we have accomplished that by ourselves. She gets better all along the more I ride her.

We have had to most marvelous fall weather.  It starts out foggy but it burns off and in the afternoon its up to about 70.  Today was cooler.  This is supposed to be a weather change.  No rain, just colder.  In fact really cold at night.

Life is good,

Chico got weaned this week and he is very sad.  He has quit calling for his mother and his mother just went out to the pasture on a run and has never looked back.  Sage has taken over the comforting of him.  She is one side of the fence and Ditto is on the other but Ditto isn't paying much attention.  When I take Sage out to ride, he gets upset but she doesn't.

Had another picture of Chico but while I was working on getting it to where I wanted it, it went away.  Me and computers.

We are having marvelous weather.  Not warm but sunny and bright.  Perfect Indian Summer weather.

I have been riding Sage almost every day.  She is such fun to ride most of the time.  No sign of buck or rearing.  Her only real bad thing she does is stop.  Just stop and won't go.  Circles work wonderful though and then she thinks yes I better go.  Love that girl so much.  In fact, I am off now to go saddle her up and take a ride.

 This is a quilt top I have been working on for almost a year now.  It is all hand done.  Getting ready to sandwhich it and get it basted so I can start quilting.  It is for the next grandchild who gets married  I don't know who that will be but thats who it is for.  Notice in the lower right hand side of the picture.  Tazzy is peeking around the corner.
And this is what Tazzy did when I started laying the flannel out.  So I gave up at that moment.  She thought she was saying she was helping me and I was yelling (in my head) HELP.

I have been riding Sage most days.  That is where I am going as soon as I finish this.  She is being such a good girl.  Bob is sure its not the same horse that we took to Oregon.  I love my new saddle, it fits her and it fits me.  My knees don't hurt and my hips don't hurt.  My back a little but the knees and hips were what really bothered me.  Now just to get her on a trail ride and I will be completely happy.

We weaned Chico last night and neither he nor his mother seem too much disturbed by it.  Rosie was just done with him and had just about weaned him herself so it has been an easy process.  I will need to go spend time with him sometime today.

Blessings to you all,

I have so remiss about keeping up my blog.  I am sorry but just so much keeps happening and going on.

First of all my Sage is home.  We went and got her Wednesday.  I went for a nice ride with Suzanne and Julie.  It was a pretty day and it was just right.  Sage did awesome and I enjoyed it so much.  My heartfelt thanks to those two who made my dreams come true.  I am excited what we are going to do together.

The leaves are beginning to turn color and I love this time of the year.  What I don't like is that we have to have winter before Spring.   Would just as soon skip winter except Christmas week.  Then winter can go away. 

I have been going to lots of high school foot ball games.  Love watching our grandsons play their hearts out.  Also I started Line Dancing classes again with Vicki.  I don't know how well I am doing but it is good exercise.

So as we welcome October, I say to myself, where on earth has this year gone.  My mother once told me that the older we get the faster time goes by.  I do think she was correct in that. Or time flies when you are having fun.   

Blessings to you all and I will try to do better.
