    Okay guys, here it is. The 2019 thread for logging hours. I'm going to do buttons to add to our beautiful ribbons we got in 2017 for participating this year. It's been fun for me to log hours and keep up with everyone and I've made new driving goals for this year so...Ready...Set...Drive!!!!

    Nice to see the new thread started! It is sunny today and I almost ground drove Peanut, but almost doesn't count :). The footing was all lumpy, frozen hoof marks from the mud.

    PLEASE READ THIS PART! :) I'm not yelling, just need you not to miss it.
    I have a small something for everyone that participated in 2018. Could you please PM me with your address?
    I have Marsha's, Northwolf's, and MajorClems. So you guys are all set :)
    I will be getting them ready to mail this weekend.
    Thanks!

    20 minutes for Peanut ground driving. We finally had a bit of sun so I found a spot that was sort of flat and
    not too muddy and we stretched our legs. Hubby offered to bring the cart out, but it is all put away for winter and it seemed like too much work for one days use.

    This is tracked by minutes? I have racked up 15 miles ground driving my young gelding Zorro. It takes us anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours depending on what we encounter on our walks. Shall I figure up the minutes?

    Hi Mindy, yup, by minutes. And we divide it into two categories. Ground driving and driving put to cart.

    And last year we logged team hours separately, too. I forgot about that :)

    Okay great! Zorro is still ground driving so his hours are: 390 for the last week or so.

    Mikey has 45 minutes driving time in cart.

    It was such a beautiful day he wore a pretty red Plume to celebrate!

    Thank you! I'm so proud of myself for remembering. And isn't there something so satisfying about watching the hours add up!?

    Mindy, your horses don't seem hairy enough for Montana! Mine are quite hideous right now.

    LOL! Zorro has several inches of hair. He grows a very thick dense coat but it isn't terribly long. Now Mikey has loooong hair. My mare Sky also has a very thick dense coat but to me she looks like a snuggly teddy bear. And lucky for me she LOVES to snuggle!

    And he did another 90 minutes today, ground driving!

    Mikey did 30 minutes of driving yesterday and 45 minutes of driving today.

    I think I said this somewhere else, but I'm saying it again, Zorro is adorable.
    We have no snow for sledding and the ground continues to be a mess so no driving for me. I'm letting my three amigos think they are feral. This plan of action will not serve me well when springtime arrives :eek:o_O

    For those who drove with us last year,the bells have arrived and will be shipped to you this weekend. Thanks for being patient with me in getting these out. For those that participate again this year we'll do a small participation trinket for those who log or at least chat with us on the driving hours and driving day thread on a regular basis. You guys make this so much fun and have really encouraged me to make driving goals for this year.

    New spreadsheet will be up soon. I'll try to make it a google doc so everyone can see it :)
