    What made you feel good today

    Time for another feel good thread, and the title says it all.

    What made me feel good today was standing talking to Ace in the semi dark, she had finished her supper, and was starting on her hay. I was talking to her just standing with an arm over her back, stroking her and admiring little Angel who as ever had curled up on mommas hay pile, so Ace is gently eating around her.

    All that was just so contenting and such a peaceful good feeling, and listening to Ace's stomach rumble and burble loudly was just the icing on the cake

    So what was your simple feel good moment

    I am glad that Ace is doing well.

    And I am glad you started this thread. I think it's really important to stop and thing about such things on a daily basis. Let's see . .

    I went out and rode Mac all by myself in the dark, wet and lonely woods. I felt good because I just had a no nonsense attitude with him, like, "you're not going to be scared of that, I know you aren't so let's just not bother even worrying about it". And, it rubbed off. Mac and I were just walking along and a couple of times he stopped to listen to the sounds of critters skittering in the bushes and I just let him. The he would swing his head around and roll his wall eye around to look at me as if to say, "so, shall we go on?" and I just lifted the rein and said, "let's go" and we went. I felt really connected to him , like old friends. Emphasis on the "old" feeling!

    Hmmm... lets see.

    I took Pumpkin out from the paddock to put him under the car port because it was raining really heavily. Just having him next to me and spending time with him while eating hay was a good feeling. There was no stress or having to correct him for behavior. It was just an all round pleasant time.

    Great thread, and very glad to here Ace and Angel are doing well :)

    What made me feel good. Not much I have had a bad day. Went out to get Stella. We were going to go for a ride in one of the bush blocks, and what does Stella do. She starts walking around in circles just out of reach. I, in the mood I was in could not be bothered with her behavour so I just walked away. What did I do that made me feel good. I walked away I could have stayed and lost my cool.

    Now pay back will be on Sunday. I will feel much better then. There is a reason she is called Stella, but on ocassion, the comedy goes out of it.

    Ok my day was awful starting by working at the stables in a thunder storm, I finished soaked to the bone. Today then ended with me being headbutted in the head by one of my horses.

    What made this day good.........???

    Getting to play with the week old colt in the stable and seeing him having a ball running around bucking like a mad man.

    At least your day ended on a positive note. Watching a colt play, relaxing.

    However I did cook a roast pork dinner and a rice pudding for afters. That made me feel better and most likely a little fatter.

    Getting a picture of Connor, mini gelding I sold yesterday with his new 3 year old owner riding him. Her smile was huge.

    Back story first.

    About a week ago my heart horse Rex came up from the paddock lame. I had the vet out and luckily it was just a simple toe bruise causing his soreness. 4 days of bute and we've come out of it without an abcess so all good there.

    However, during the vet's exam he discovered pretty severe ankylosing arthritis in both the knee and fetlock of his near fore leg. Where a healthy horse can flex to touch the back of his fetlock to his elbow, Rex can barely make it halfway. Where a healthy fetlock will flex to a 90 degree angle, Rex barely makes 45.

    So, our plans to dabble in dressage have been halted. He is officially a pleasure pony now. We have been given a maximum of 6 years before he is completely crippled and I have to face making that horrible decision.

    So what made me feel good today? Just watching my beautiful boy, covered in dirt and filth, enjoying himself.

    Sorry for the shakiness in the video.

    Another great thread idea courtesy of GH! So glad Ace is feeling back to her normal self!

    HowClever, that's heartbreaking. Enjoy the time you've got with him. *Hugs*

    My feel good today, sleeping past 7 am! My wonderful hubby did chores (doesn't happen too often, he hates fixing my old man's mash) while I snored away! Plus, I'm still on a high from snagging me a dressage saddle at a yard sale for $20 yesterday!
