Sigh. I wish my parents reacted like you guys did.. My parents aren't horse people really, and they were so mad at me. I can't wait to go to college. It's like I don't do anything right to begin with in their eyes..

I think the only people who don't blow up now & then are zombies but they're zombies.

Can't the feed guy turn on a light?

Zombies kinda blow up if you shotgun em but that's more a spray of blood and a dribble of sadness in the lack of explosion.

When life gives you lemons....chuck em at whoever is giving them to you!
I don't want lemons! I want cookies!

Eh, I've done it. Female. Hormones. Teenager.

It gets the better of us! Honestly though, if its a one off, let it be a lesson to you to walk away when you feel like that, not to take it out on anything more than a pillow.

And don't worry about your parents- mine are like that too and I'm 20 and pay rent lol, they love you, and nothing is ever good enough because they want you to try harder and not make the same mistakes they did.

Ha! You would think.... But no the light is in a weird spot, it's like across from the door on the opposite wall.... LOL. She said he wouldn't know where it was... C'est la vie.

Sounds like a tough night. BUT, we're human. We make mistakes, and quite a few of them. You've admitted you were wrong, and that is a huge step in the right direction. Your horse will forgive you.

On the techno note, good luck with the iPod; they are notorious for dying after the slightest encounter with water. The phone may be alright with rice, though...I've saved at least two with the dry rice method

It's ok everyone has bad days and makes mistakes after all of we didn't make mistakes we either never learn anything or be perfect and being perfect is far to boring. Hope the iPod and phone dry out ok keep your head up chicken

I would recommend putting the phone and ipod in the oven on a very low heat; basically like what you'd feel in the sun on a hot summer day. Not hot enough to damage the displays.

Leave 'em in there for several hours. You want to get ALL of the moisture out. That's the best way to get the moisture out quickly and it needs to be gotten out as quickly and completely as possible....

Hope you can recover them both!

After that terrible night, isn't it interesting how worthless the electronic appliances really seem when compared to the value of your relationship with your horse? We ALL make so many mistakes.... I definitely get madder at ME than I do at anyone else....

Hope the next ride is a great one!

i got in a yelling match with my roommate once... then went to the barn to ride. i felt okay... but was clearly NOT okay to ride. I was forceful and pushy with my horse and he became upset and confused... we were both building and building and suddenly he reared. It wasn't a huge rear and he didn't throw me, but i was clearly making him frightened. I dismounted, untacked, and put him in the turn out. He canter away from me, rolled a couple times, and then came back to temperature check me. We all do it... even if we don't realize how worked up we are, they can feel all the crap we carry around with us. Mirrors to our souls, right!? haha!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
