I just came back from a walk in the country with my husband. I happened to see some horses and thought of you and Rosie. How is she doing? Do you get much of a chance to ride her?

My hair wasn't quite flowing in the wind. For one thing, it's too short to flow. And for another thing, I wear a very sturdy and plasticky helmet to protect my head in the event of a mishap. One fractured skull in my lifetime is enough!! ;)

And no handsome knight in shining armour on a black steed to save me either.... he probably would've peed himself from laughing so hard, rusted his armour, and been no help to me anyway ;)

Wow, what a sight!! Was your hair flowing majectically through the wind? Who cares about your yelps as long as your hair was flowing in the right direction. Was there any handsome man in a black stallion in hot puruit trying to save you?

I'm really not that graceful or majestic when I'm riding her!! Especially the time when this massive Clydesdale made a surprise appearance at the side of the road, and Rosa hightailed it out of there at top speed!! I'm sure I amused all the neighbours with my mad screams of "WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAA!!!!!" as I bounced around on top of her!! I still don't know how I managed to stay on -- but I do know that we won't be riding on that road again!!

You are so lucky to be able to spend your spare time with her. She's so beautiful!!! I can just imagine what an image you present, riding majestically on top of her, on a country road. Very English, moorish, Bronte ish!!!

Elise, Rosa is doing fine, except for one problem -- she just hates having her saddle & bridle put on. On Friday, it took me about 15 minutes to get the bridle on her. I don't know why she fights it -- the only thing I can think of is that she got a scrape on the top of her head a couple of weeks ago, and maybe the bridle rubs on it and bothers her. I'm going to give her a week off from riding and see if she feels better about things after a little break.

I go to see her and ride her 3 days a week. I'm taking two afternoons off from work each week so I can spend more time with her. I need to find some trails to ride on -- right nowm I ride her either in the pasture or on the road. It's not a busy road, but a quiet foreast trail would be better :)

Here's a picture of Rosa from a few weeks ago....
