    Aside from the fact that he's got the sweetest face on the planet.... i've been told that if you have plans to slaughter, you shouldn't name them. Do ya'll suppose that's true? I couldn't ever raise my own meat. I'd name everything and never get to the slaughter part.

    Go with the mind set that you are going to shoot you some people. Go all out like a wild woman and have fun. It really is a good time when you get into it. However, it's never easy going along and trying to have a really good time when you just aren't in the mood to go.

    @Maple: Thanks. Not many racers left. Hubby and I just went to Sonoma Beach, CA to the Del Mar track. They weren't racing but it was fun to see the place and watch the exercise and training.

    As for yard sales, I used to love them. Now I only go if I'm looking for something specific (crib, dog kennel, etc).

    Oh I have no plans at all to slaughter him....unless he doesn't stop being so naughty!

    I wouldn't name my food. DH wants to get a hog and a cow for meat. I told him it would need to go in an area where I couldn't see it do anything cute or possibly get attached or else we would have another pet.

    Here's some random food for thought (literally) and I think about this all the time. I'm thinking about it right now while I'm finishing my glass of milk that I had with my eggs and breakfast stuff for dinner. How totally weird/gross/morbid/inappropriate is it that we drink the life juice (milk) intended for that animals infant young?? I mean really, who thought of that? One day some dude saw a calf nursing, and was like hmmmm...I'm next! Seriously, it's just strange. But even worse than that, who was the brave and twisted individual that decided eating undeveloped chicken embryos was a fantastic idea? I mean think about it- It's an embryo! Or the makings of one at least. Who cracked open that first egg and looked at it's contents and decided "Oh heck yes! I think I'll scramble this right up and eat it!" Or "Boy, I sure bet this would be delicious if I boiled it!" More than likely a college kid back on the prairie settlement or whatever. And finally, someone realized if you combine these 2 things with some flour and a few other ingredients you can make cake!!

    Congrats on the new job, Drafty! That sounds like a really great deal for you right now.

    I'm currently going crazy trying to get my house ready to show. I hate moving! At least when we finally get settled, I'll be able to have Cascade with me.

    That is the cutest pig ever! =) The naughty only makes him cuter lol.

    I think the first man that decided to eat a bird embryo was thinking "Ugh....HUNGRY! I wonder if this is edible....maybe it tastes better with FIRE!" lol

    So on the topic of naughty animals, right now I'm thinking of killing Witch, making her into burgers and using her skin for coats.

    I go to ride her tonight, and she's even worse than last week. She's tossing her head, half the time refusing to back up, TROTTING when I don't ask for the trot (really didn't, trust me), and at the walk, pulling at the bit and trying to bring herself over to my husband. Oh, and pretending that she doesn't know how to "Whoa"...I loved that one.

    So after the zillionth time of her trying to force her way over to my husband, I ask him "FINE do you want to ride?!"...now he's had exactly one lesson. And do you know, though it's clear she doesn't like going slow, she only tried to trot on him ONCE, and if she tried slightly veering towards me in the arena, he barely had to do anything to redirect her. =/ She's all lovey dovey towards him. Reminds me of his Kat...she will meow and roll for me, and purr, and when I get close enough, sometimes she will just bite me really hard and run away. Witch is the same way. After he rode her, I got back on, and she was worse, I kid you not! Tried a CANTER, straight towards the mounting block and stopped.

    I know I'm taking lessons, but I may also send her away for a tune up so to speak. Hubby is somewhat pleased that she likes him so much, which makes me even MADDER because though he wants to learn to ride, HE DOESN'T EVEN GENERALLY LIKE HORSES!!!! =/

    EVIL WITCH!!!!!!!!! I'd rather ride Mama Pony at this rate! At least I know she'd be trying to get rid of me out of fear, not out of spite lol

    I did, not sure why I didn't respond. Honestly, I don't know. I've only ridden a gaited horse once for like half an hour, and my BO hasn't had time to check her out for me. I do note that she seems to step a little differently. Wasn't sure if it was due to her feet being so long at the time.

    I am still a newb you know =P

    If she is gaited it makes all the difference in the world with how you ride her, including the bit, saddle, etc. Not to mention the hoof angles are cut differently than non-gaited, you want a longer toe. Is there any way you can get a video of one of you riding her? I could tell you if she is by seeing her move.

    Yes, I can, but I'll definitely have to send it to you privately haha!!!!

    I have her in an O ring snaffle right now, is that not ok if she's gaited?
