Good Morning or Afternoon!


Figured I would say good day since it's so late here (9am) and it's almost noon in the east.

Thanks Iride for the shot of espresso. Needed that and more for yesterday.

Got my hair cut about 2 - 21/2" off the lenghth and the husband almost passed out when he seen me. (now it's about my bra strap lenghth) I feel soooooo much better and lighter not to mention I have my natural waves back.

Had a nice ride out yesterday. I rode a couple hours with my bareback pad. It was a little windy so my horse was on edge in some areas and in one spot, a bunny shot across from us and my horse spooked, he went left and I went straight and landed on my feet. Good thing is there was a big rock so I could get back on again. (note to self, next horse is under 15.0 hands)
The look on my horses face was to say,"but mom, That creature was 10' tall with big teeth and claws, I know he was going to eat me, I just know it, Sorry, do you forgive me~KISS,KISS"
Back up and down the trail to finish our ride with NO more spooks.

I was planning on taking my daughter out on the trail today but it is really windy today and I don't want her out there on the trail but we might get some time to ride in the arena to practice.

Since it's lunch time, how about some chicken fingers and a COKE!

Have a great day everyone!

HAHA!! That made me laugh! My horse bucked me off a couple of weeks ago and he came back with pretty much the same look on his face!

HOWDEEE!! **waving**
I was grinning like a banshee when I saw the title of this thread! I was like: GOOD girl, Gaited! FINALLY...somebody who understands!!
So far...The Lady hasn't bucked me OFF...(just give her time...) but I'm too much of a coward to ride bareback, too! Just can't see it when I paid such good $$$ for the saddle...but that's just me.
The horses were glad to see me this morning. I have to walk them over to the East pasture, and they were ready. Once I get them moved, I pick their dry lot.
Not much going on today. Going out to the Farm later to feed the goats for my other brother Darrell, and make sure none of them are caught in the fence. The heifer in there went right thru the 'hotwire' earlier this week, and the goats have been taking advantage of *that*!

For Your Info:
If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you
would have $49.00 left.
With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.
And with WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of
the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you
would have $214.00 cash.
Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily
and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg

A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found Americans drink, on the average, 22 gallons of alcohol a
year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Makes You Proud To Be An American!

Thought Ya'all might get a kick outta this........

Have a great afternoon/evening!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Sharon, my husband got the same shock when I had my hair cut off a couple of weeks ago!

Amy, that cracked me up! I know some people I must pass that on to.

Sooo, I survived the zoo and got some great pictures. The weather even cooperated and didn't rain. I really feel like taking a nap now!

Good afternoon folks! Busy day today and good things for a change.

Good luck with your show Poptart, Sorry to hear about the semi-spill Gaited, and a WAVE to you Painted.

It's about 75, slight breeze, blue sky, the duck is doing better, the horses are fed for the evening, the boat is out of the water, chicken fingers for dinner, and a single malt scotch waiting for 5:00. Life can be good.

The mare may be going on Sunday. I got a call from someone who wants me to take a 16h 12 year old TB gelding who has been Eventing and Fox Hunting. They have too many horses and one or two have to go.

Anyone want a TB??

Larry will get his mare sooner then he expected - I'm going to miss Alice.

Ride tomorrow!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Hey everyone! We have a filly this morning! All I know is that she's bay, born around 7am, and she and mom are doing great. I can't wait to see them and take pics! :)
