    I'm at the library!!!!! Finally!!!!!

    I feel like texting everyone I know so they don't claim I don't study.

    It's not even my library lol.

    My university is 500km so I just go to other uni/tafe libraries and pretend I go there.

    I got tough with Rosie today. I was like *aaarrgh get out of my space* and she was like *OMG! You're a actually a crazy lion!!!* or something to that effect.

    Saskia, I assume you can access your university's online journal database from anywhere?

    I used to work at the university library, most of the other students in my class visited maybe 3 times in the whole time they were at uni (it was a practical degree, though). I loved it, once I finished work I'd grab a few books (usually totally unrelated to my degree) and sit in a corner reading until closing time. I've always hung round libraries, I'm a total nerd and bookworm

    I've always hung around libraries too!

    Well not so much now, but as a kid/teenager I always did, and places where there were nice libraries.

    Yeah I can access it online, and I can just read the books in these libraries too which is good.

    So I'm planning on building a wheelbarrow/cart thing, like I mentioned earlier. I am kind of broke.. so I am thinking I can just make my own.

    So a few weeks ago I found a big orange box and then today I was driving and I found this sort of trolley base wheel axis metal thing. So if some how I can combine them I shall make my own little manure barrow thing. I'll take some pics later and maybe you can give me some ideas on how to combine them.... I don't think duct tape's going to cut it this time.

    Do you have a drill and tec screws? Doing stuff like that is kind of part of my trade lol

    We have to make shift stuff all the time to get our job done. :)

    I have a screwdriver with multiple heads, a handful of screws, scissors and a small amount of twine.

    I feel I may need to get some more tools to complete this project.

    Proud of my boy again - he expressed willingness to play with me in the pastures, with the rest of the herd nearby and we had a nice, short libery session with a wonderful rear (by cue) and cantering side by side through the herd. I love it when he is so eager to be with me and have a pleasant time. :)

    Saranda, aren't those times some of the best? I love liberty work, Brock and I have ridiculous amounts of fun doing it and it really helps build mutual trust. I used to set up little jumps in the arena and we'd jump them side-by-side, we'd play follow-the-leader and then I'd lead him (without a leadrope obviously) to all the spots in the arena he didn't like going usually and giving him scratches there. Then he'd trot and canter circles around me as if I were lungeing him and we'd race each other or play around with a ball. I think I love it as much as I love riding!

    It is wonderful indeed, and it builds not only trust, but also liking to each other and the ability to have fun, with no obligations to fulfil this or that training goal. I am also learning to feel this way when we are actually training, because it helps Snickers to loosen up and have good times even when we are doing hard work. If I perceive it as hard work myself, Snickers then immediately finds it...boring. :)

    Aw that sounds like so much fun! I must try that with nyx, she would be all for it being so young and cheeky still..
    Had to lead her across a small gully today and she was a bit hesitant to cross so I went first and she got about half through it and decided to jump the rest. Scared the living hell out of me cause I thought she was trying to jump in my bloody arms!! But whenever me and stood next to me and had a huge sigh lol cracked me up.

    Saskia I think you may need a drill the screwdriver will get you through the plastic but it wont be fun going through the metal unless it has some little convenient pilot holes in it. :)
