He did pretty well, considering he hasn't been ridden hardly at all the last few months, because of the weather. My lesson kid was sick and canceled, so after Dragon, the hubby and I pulled out Buck and Phantom and tried out an Aussie and an Endurance saddle that I brought home from a friend. He LOVES the endurance, so looks like I will be buying it and adding to the tack collection. She flat out gave us the Aussie, I just need to buy a girth for it. Oh lordie, I just added it up, that's 13 saddles I have now. I think I may have a slight tack problem, lol.
    13?? I thought I was bad having two for kiddie - her "regular ride in" saddle and her show saddle. I somehow have managed to collect about 10 pony bridles (for 1 pony?!?!). I think we may start a sect of "Tack Hoarders Anonymous"

    How are we all ladies and gents? It's been a while!
    Glad to see ya back..and joining us old folks

    Apachie, sounds like a great thing you are doing for them. Hopefully they pay attention, at least to the important stuff.

    I also have to say you made my day. I don't feel quite as bad about the insane amount of saddles around here. I'm sitting here trying to count, is it bad that I'm not exactly sure? There's 8 racks in the tack room and most are doubled up, then there's a couple in the house, a few more at my mom's house...but on the grand scheme of things it is close to a saddle for every horse here, not quite as many horses...maybe I need more horses?

    I like that logic! I am down to 5 horses, so I have almost 3 saddles per horse? Eek. Definitely need more horses, lmao.

Even then, it's difficult for a father to get full custody rights without the mother's express consent.

    If I may ask, what county (or city) is she in?

    You're exactly right, drafty! And even though we had a NUMBER OF SMALL victories in family court, the ultimate reason we ended up with full-custody of Jakob is because HE was permitted to choose where HE wanted to live "FULL TIME" (that was our final victory, because he was desperate to live with his dad/"us", BUT, unless the court had permitted, he would still be at 50/50!); hence Ethan and that situation.

    The sad bottom line? Kids IMO, NEED a mom AND a dad. The problem is that these days, kids are lucky if they have ONE PARENT who is willing and able to work their hardest to meet that child's needs, let alone two who are truly "fit" to do so. Ugh.

    I decided to come join this thread. My name is Donna, and I'm 36 years old. I am married to a wonderful man. He has been in the army (infantry) for 15 years, and we are planning on him retiring when he has done 20. We have 3 kids. Seven and five year old girls, and a 6 month old son. I also have two dogd, two cats, 3 budgies, chickens, and 3 horses.

    I was one of those girls who was bitten by the horse bug as a little girl, but we could not afford one. I didn't get on a horse until I was 8 years old. I was lucky if I could ride a horse about every 5 years. I got lucky with my husband, he loves horses as much as I do. So, talking him into getting one was no issue. I think he talked me into the rest of them. In roughly 5 years we will be moving to MO, where my father has 40 acres of land. My husband plans on working the farm with the horses. Should be interesting to see what he has in mind.

    Good morning fellow horsie people!
    What a morning lol, woke up to rain AGAIN! I am so sick of it and I want everything to dry up. If I never see mud again I would die happy!
    So...my question of the day: How can you love and want to kill your child so much at the same time?? It was a morning of crabbiness and taking it out on mom, don't you love those days? I think I got my first grey hair. It also sucks that I have to live with two smelly boys, sometimes I think I need a girl to back me up but I'm not sure I could handle someone else just like me. Well now that everyone is gone and the house is so wonderfully quiet I can clean in peace!
    Have a great day peeps!
