Another week has flown by ...

Really can't believe another week has gone by.  It was a week ago that I last sat on my boy, and today he couldn't have been any better.  I took it easy because I woke up feeling a tiny bit on the puny side, so I hopped on in the cc saddle, no half chaps, no boots, and no bridle:)  

We just hacked around the boy's back pasture.  I didn't really put him on a hill track, we just went up hills, down hills, through the wooded areas, around the trees, and over ditches made more recently deep by all the rain we've had.  The aforementioned rain would be the reason I rode Tiki on Monday, but not the rest of the week.  There was a little bit of head shaking going on, but I watched carefully and even though I COATED him in fly spray, there were still flies landing on his neck and biting his delicate little red skin.  He was a good boy; I was proud.

Today's tip of the week is brought to you by me ... because I had to use it today!  As I was grooming the muffin man, I noticed those pesky little yellow flecks ... BOT eggs:(  The easiest way to get those goobers off is to take a cheap disposable razor, and scrape them right off.  Cheap, quick, and effective!  If YOU have a tip or money saving trick, , just shoot me an e0mail at  I look forward to hearing from y'all!!  Until later on, have a great week!


  1. I like the new format, but the red text is hard to read over the gray bg. There is not enough contrast. Could you make the text either white, black, or darker red? Thanks!!
