Here are a few of Matthew my 3 year olds pictures. He is my one and only boy. My other two are girls ages 9 and 11. They are the old timey so the ones I bought are black and white, and sepia.

The fence issue is totally unacceptable and hassling you about payment before it is even due, what the heck?! If either of my 2 boarders ever complain, I'm going to print the horror stories I read on here off for them LOL. One of the horses staying with me is in foal w/unknown due date (long, long story and will share if it is okay with owner - I will ask) and owner works 3rd shift so I'm doing foal watch even, up every few hours to check on her, wasn't asked, offered to do it, no intention of charging her for it. Just seems the right thing to do for the horse.

Glad that DD is getting on well with Nod. Can't wait to see show pics!

M will be showing w/t/c this year on Stubby, also plans to ride my big Hano mare on the flat in hunter under saddle & Equitation. I shot down her full plans when she informed me that she was going to jump her, um not happening kid. Missy is an amazing mare, calm schoolmaster on the flat but over a jump course is a very bold mare, not bad but she knows her job and she loves it - requires a confident, strong rider. When jumping you feel all the power that her 16.3hh body has in it. I love it but DD is nowhere near ready for that.

Got bad news about EZ, the sorrel mare I had given to me for M. She toes out in the front and paddles slightly because of it. Didn't think too much of it, they can't all have perfect confo and she's dead to rights broke & show pen polished so I overlooked it. Well, with much consistent riding she becomes a gimp. Had farrier, chiro & vet (all at the same time, that took some miraculous planning) The toed out part, rotation starts all the way in her shoulder and the 3 decided it was likely that she will hold up to be a w/t or walk only trail horse at best. Farrier said he could do a rocker shoe on the fronts and work with chiro but neither was optimistic and thought likely at her age it would do more harm than good. Soooo, EZ is going back to her old owner for her to figure out what to do with her, retire her or find another home. Either way, she won't hold up for what I need out of her. It's a pretty big bummer and M wasn't happy at all about it but does understand. A few minutes after we talked about it, she told me "Well then mom, Merit will just have to get old enough for me faster or let me help you teach him to ride." Um, he is to be hers years & miles down the road, he won't be 2 for another month. Suppose my kid will follow family footsteps and be a trainer herself? She's a bit young yet but doesn't think so herself. I have let her sit on him and did catch her on him in the pasture once as a yearling - he's quiet enough he let her lead him by his mane to a gate, climb on him and mosey around while he ate. I have to admit, he is one of the most quiet, willing youngsters I've had. Even before I cut him, he didn't know he had the equipment and now that the mares are all in heat and all the boys are going crazy, he's perfectly happy that they are just leaving him alone and couldn't care less that they are springtime hussies. Love that little guy
I'm so sorry to hear about EZ M sounds like a right little topper and like a tough lil things, I envision her to be exactly as you prob were at her age!

The BO is very much annoying me.. the horses only moved there on the 18th of March and the place has fallen apart in the month they are there. I only ever saw two other boarders; I don't see their horses there and they are no longer texting to ask if their kids can ride Nod while we're out so I'm wondering if they have cleared out. I have always always been the type to get stuck in and help around the yard if there are jobs to do. The first day we arrived his GF got off their 4yo stud and he got loose and galloped over to me holding Nod, who is a mare and in season!! While my two kids were standing waiting for her to get tacked up. Nothing happened, but somebody could have got seriously injured. I didn't make a fuss, even though I would have been in my right to. I want to go there, see to my horses, stay outta the drama and do my thing... now I'm starting to feel uneasy going out there. I know his GF from a previous yard and I'm thinking of telling her that if I continue to get hassled I'll look at my other options.

So did I, and I married her. My then wife and I were depressed and decided we would commit suicide. Funny thing happened when she killed herself. I started to feel better, so I thought to myself what the hell, I'll solder on.

That's when I met my present wife, or was that the one after that other one. Never mind I also have a mare and that says it all.

I'm joking for those that don't have any humor in them and its not in poor tast.

My manager is amazing. He talked to the GM to me and got the deduction from my paycheck reduced to $100. I can breathe a little easier now.

I wish my (future) mother-in-law was that easy to deal with. She doesn't like me because she thinks I'm bringing my BF down and that I'm lazy. In reality, she's upset because she had everything "perfect" in her little world before I came along and screwed it up. My BF was running the vending business for her without pay, she had him all to herself and she didn't have to account for her money to anyone. Now, she lives by herself, my BF has taken a second full-time job so we can become independent while still helping her, and all of the boys (my BF and his two brothers) are questioning where all the money from the business, her job, and her deceased husband's social security money is going (by all rights, the business should be bringing in $1500-2000 per month in profit). Of course, she'd never tell me to my face that she doesn't like me. She just makes little digs at me behind my back to my boyfriend, which he tells me. My BF forgot to pay the electric bill last month and it got shut off. He told her it was completely his fault, but somehow, she manage to place the blame on me.

Sorry, I'm just a ball of sunshine, aren't I?

Aw Horselovin - for the first time ever last year I had sinus trouble, it was such a PITA! It was up through my ear and I couldnt hear out of it for about 2 weeks. Hope you are feeling a bit better today.

Drafty - is that per paycheque??! They have still gone back on the contract that was signed. Glad its been changed to make it better but hope you are still fighting your corner.

Well everybody snowy the cat has gone for a life outside. She went to the litter box, and then proceededto come out and wee on the chair right infront of me!! Sorry cat, you were in the litter 3 min ago - that's just takin the mick!
