My pictures are itty bitty because of my crappy connection and issues with AOL (
aol needs to bite my hiney). I had to make them teeny tiny so it wouldn’t take forever and a day to upload.
Scooter did not like me riding brother-in-law W’s 4 -wheeler. He stood there until I was finished.
This isn’t the best picture of the little filly that lives about 1 mile away. Actually she isnt all that little, she is pretty good sized, I bet she’ll mature to an easy 16 hands.
The filly was wearing a ‘pretty pink’ halter…..poor thing. When I took my walk, she was running in her pasture all alone and acted like she was starved for company. She kept reaching over the fence for me and walked/ran along as far as she could with me. Her momma is a brown mare and she was gone. I am assuming her owners took her to get bred? maybe……I have no idea. The brown mare did not have a foal last year.
Not much roping has been going on lately. Yesterday I picked up my rope and threw it some. Now my shoulder is achy. I am so out of shape it isn’t funny.
This reminds me of a MeMe that was sent to me awhile back. One of the questions was:
WHAT WAS YOUR STRANGEST INJURY OR ILLNESS?
I would have to say: a pulled groin muscle.
One New Years Day, about 7 years ago, best friend L. and I entered a money roping. I was heeling. We did well and made it to the 2nd round. I stood up in my saddle and threw my loop (caught both heels too) but when I did, I twisted a certain way and……..boy howdy!
I felt like some one had kneed me in the crotch with a lead knee. Scooter put on the brakes like a good roping horse, my rope jerked tight and I nearly toppled out of the saddle.
It was a painful not to mention embarrassing injury.
I hope that never happens again….
