    Hi Afton, welcome!

    So this evening when I went down to feed Dalilah and Pan, I got to see Pan interact and play a little for the first time with his little brother! It was soo cute! Then he decided he better go play with mom and jump on her for a bit.

    Sorry some are a little blurred I didn't get a chance to change my camera setting in time.






    Look at the derp face Dalilah is making hahahahaaa

    Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

    Drafty, I can sympathize. Hopefully writing your business plan will help you hammer out the details. Good luck!

    DS had his spring concert tonight, and my allergies have been kicking my butt. I take meds for them every day, though, so I didn't think anything of it. Can I just say, it's incredibly difficult to try to sneeze quietly! Especially for, like, twenty minutes.

    I have traveled to the dark side to guide you back into the light.
    Your sence of humour and comments are missed.

    Still waiting on the car *sigh*. DH did take me out in his car last night and I only stalled once - at the very start before we even left the driveway! Whoot!. I kept laughing when he was trying to explain things to me - can not take him seriously at all! He said I did fantastic :) I have two large concerns... I'm nervous about shifting down when slowing much more so than shifting up while going quicker. The other is hills... they roll on the slightest bit of a hill... my automatics needed a really big hill to roll.

    MHF - I hope it went well :) They refuse to tie my tubes and would love DH to get snipped! Two kids is enough :)

    Welcome Afton!! Don't know what the others are talkin bout... I'm perfectly normal in my own head. Not at all crazy....

    EMS - Love Pan!! He is such a cutie. I can relate to the faces Momma is makin, I'm sure my faces are similar when DS is jumpin all over me :)

    Alex - What an awsome picture!! The most I get out of Bandit is a whinny and a saunter over. Granted when it's dinner time he moves quite a lot quicker lol

    Anyway... DS slept til after 8:30 this mornin!! We are getting new neighbours, and the house has been vacant for darn near two years so they have a professional cleaning crew in. I was tempted to tell them they were at the wrong house lol! Then DH told me it should motivate me to clean our house - WHAT!?!? SOmebody is getting the grumpy wife treatment later!

    So, I just got an email from the BO in the Sacramento area. She wanted to know if I was interested in her trainer doing some ground work with Kiera. She says that my horse isn't too respectful of space...not terrible though, just that she's "used to the training they've done with horses here", and my horse isn't a part of that.

    So, I'm not entirely sure what to think, and I think I"ll email her back. One, I haven't seen or worked with Kiera for six months...but she was always very careful of me. I don't mind her sniffing, or the occasional "kiss" on my cheek, just no biting, nipping pulling etc. I guess I'm just not sure if what I allow is different from what they allow there (probably LOL), or if my horse has gotten "worse" with lack of training....hubby suggests it may be a little of both. I guess I just don't want to get back a horse that is 100 percent different from the Kiera I know.

    So what do you guys expect from your horses with respect to your space?

    Demon - There is nothing new about a young horse testing the water and needing to be put in line. I remember clear as day a filly at the TB stud, as a foal she was as sweet as pie - followed us around like a puppy dog. Let her out for the summer as a yearling and she went as far as to gallop up to somebody and attempt to double barrel them. When I got Bandit he was a PIG, would walk right through you. He knows better than to do that to me, but he's fond of testing DH.

    I am very particular about a horse behaving themselves and respecting my space - think this is down to working with young TBs.

    I think most horses need reminders, especially when they haven't been worked in a while. Not sure I would be happy using a trainer I didn't know though, so that depends on how much you trust your BO's opinion.

    I don't really know her, since I've never met her in person, just talked on the phone, and talked to several of her boarders. The two I talked to on the phone had been with her for 20+ years. The few I met in person seemed nice...So clearly, they find her trustworthy. That being said, I don't have personal experience, so I don't know. =/
