I'm having serious womanly issues. Possibly going to the urgent care tomorrow morning. IDK, we'll see what's going on in the morning with my problems. Let's just say that heavy overnight pads weren't enough, so we've moved on to adult diapers at this point. :-/

I am feeling kind of bummed right now, I turned 32 Wednesday and im looking at eventually needing surgery to fuse two vertebra in my back, and probably going to have both of my knees replaced.

Yikes - sorry both of you!

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Ditto what Cat said. Paige, hope you are feeling better & got some answers. I've dealt with some girly issues myself and know how frustrating that can be. Nick, bummer man but may be very well worth it. DH had a knee replacement at 28. It was a bit of a recovery but once he was healed he said he felt like a new man. My gpa had both done at the same time, he had a tough recovery but moves better now than I've seen him move in a decade. Good enough that he can walk the deep sand on the beach for hours and not be in pain from it.

So I, um, bought another horse. Wasn't looking, didn't really need another but had a great horse/deal fall into my lap. Owner in a bad spot, their bad luck was my good fortune. Will be brave & post a pic, you can see how I've gained quite a few lbs in the last couple of months. Losing Hondo & Missy kind of put a halt to my riding, went from 7 hours or so a day to sent outside horses home and have rode maybe a handful of times since losing Miss.

Anyway, meet Bailey. 12 yo, 16hh paint mare (she has a cute little belly spot) with a serious show record, over a 1,000 pts & 4 youth world champion titles. Has wins in Hunter under, WP, SMS & Hunt seat equitation. Very, very, very well trained. Now I'm going to have to teach my kiddo to ride a spur broke wp horse...very much the opposite of how most of mine ride. She says "Mom, it is weird that you squeeze to slow her down or spur to stop". Yep, kid, it is weird but it's kind of fun too. She hadn't been rode in 3 months, pulled her out of the pasture, climbed on & tested her out. Flying changes are a bit sloppy & she's due for a tune up but nothing I can't take care of in the next couple of months while I get her legged back up.

She's lovely! You always find the best deals, LOL! Can't wait to see what you guys do with her!
Glad to hear you are getting back into the works, huge hugs to you guys.

DAM hope you get to feeling better soon.

Threw in the first bale of hay yesterday... :(
Fall is here! Been messing with the horses to get them ready for the fall trails! But of course yesterday when I went to mess with Rick I found a large cut on his back pastern. Of course. It's like he does it on purpose to get out of work. Grumble grumble...

Anyone got a fatty that needs a few hundred trail miles you want to ship down here? Hint hint... :)

Thanks! I didn't find her, she found me. I was the first call made about her, just got lucky. She wasn't even advertised. Darn it Rick! They are always good for that huh?! I do know a fatty that could use a few thousand trail miles...Rick needs a fat twin right?

Nice looking mare! Never rode a spur stop trained horse. Why do they train them that way? Is there certain disciplines where it has more advantage?

We also put out our first round bale today for the big guys. I still don't know where the summer went.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
