    I wonder if there's anybody in the area looking for a place to keep their goat/alpaca/pony? It might be a long shot but you never know... would the people who own the place allow that?

    For quite a while I had my horse in the back (grass) pasture, and my minis in the dry lot in the front. There was a single fence in between them so they could still sniff each other, see each other (for the most part) and socialize, but Wyn was SO much happier once I let them all run together.

    Hey Guys! I'm Meg! I recently moved from sunny FL to Philly. So far I love it here, aside from having to sell my horse and leave home:( I'm trying to find a place to ride close-ish to me but everything seems to be at least an hour or more away(I'm about 15 minutes outside the city) or lessons are about $55 and up for an hour a week. I ride western, always have, but everything up here is some kinda English. I'm not opposed to learning a new discipline, heck I think it would be fun! I'm just not looking for snooty stuck up show barns where it'll cost me an arm and a leg to maintain time in the saddle.

    SO! If anyone knows of any places to ride in the Philly area that might be a good fit, I'm all ears! :)

    Hi Meg! Welcome, I hope you find somewhere soon.

    I don't think the owner wants any other animals on the property, but if Rosie doesn't settle soon I'll talk to her about options. Maybe even just turning her out with her horses for part of the day?

    I've been thinking a lot this morning, I'm rather reminiscent.

    At our age, do you guys ever feel, I don't know how to explain it. But I was thinking about how I am, and to be honest a lot of my hang-ups and fears and I don't know, ways of being, are left over from high school, and the not so good times there. And I was thinking high school really messes us up.

    Now I'm an adult and I've long left it behind and never looked back really. People there who were so important to me, I haven't seen for years. None of it matters anymore but I'm still that person, I'm not someone else. And I haven't built a life, I don't know how to be in this world. I feel like I'm in between worlds - somewhere between the past and the real life I haven't seem to have started yet.

    Anyway, my question was, is this just something I am feeling, or an experience shared by our age group?

    Hmm, I was home schooled so thankfully avoided the hell that is highschool. I would have been so awkward, it was bad enough when I was in early primary and everyone used to laugh at me because I was interested in different stuff to them. Well, the girls did anyway. Didn't have huge trouble transitioning to uni - although I've never been popular, except when people need homework help LOL.

    Something a bit funny and random (and probably explaining why I'm not popular ). Today I have received no likes on my posts here. I assume most people would think: "Hmm, mustn't have posted anything really worthwhile and helpful today." My first thought: "****, the 'like' function mustn't be working properly today!"

    I keep to myself ALOT because of highschool. And well that is because in years 7-9 and part of year 10 I kinda hung with a bunch of seriously stuck up snotty nose girls and all they did was gossip behind their 'best friends' backs. Like very nasty stuff and make the whole group dislike one girl because of one story and it just kept going on. So because of that im very careful who I open up to and tell anything about myself.

    Ahh girls can be outright b**ches in highschool. But from year 10 onwards I could pic my own classes with my 'real' friends and didnt have to put up with them. :)

    I think it's something everyone goes through. Majority of the people in the world weren't the popular kids, and even the popular kids has issues in high school. Same in college. Everyone has to go through that adjustment phase from high school, to college, to the real world. Some have to deal with it much faster if they do college and a job at the same time like it seems many of you are doing. But, on the plus side, I can tell you that this phase will end and you will end up a "normal" adult in society. But, that won't happen until you figure out what you want to do with your life and start down that path. I agree, high school messes us up. You just have to get it in your head that it's over and move on to greener pastures.

    Hmm... I think I really have to think about my life. In the past couple of months everything has been changing so much. I've graduated my bachelor, been doing research, moved close to family, worked a bit. Just been doing things. I'm pretty sure I want to be a high school teacher now, and am ready to study that... but I don't know. I like being near family again, well my mum at least, the rest of the family isn't so interested, but I have no idea how to make friends. Or where to go to do that. In some ways things are working out but in others they're not. I'm going to stick it out here a bit though.

    Today was good and bad with Rosie. I went there this morning, did a little groundwork with the saddle on her and she was good. Gave her a good brush and she looked great and she'd eaten all the hay I left for her last night! Then talked to the BO and we talked about my worries getting Rosie to the yard and she helped with some solutions I can try to implement.

    Came back this afternoon and Rosie was covered with sweat and had spent hours going up and down when the horses went a little out of sight (she could still see some others though). She'd pawed the fence and gotten her leg caught but she was okay. The owner had let her into a neighbouring paddock to let her have a look around and meet some horses on the other side of the fence but she was just really unsettled.

    So I don't know what to do about her. Or anything else for that matter.

    And Doom, don't despair, I liked your post!

    Naww thanks Saskia!

    Hmmm, good to hear that Rosie is eating, but that's annoying that she's stressing about being left behind. Hope you find a solution soon!

    Is there another horse you can put in with Rosie? A single horse beyond the herd is afraid of getting eaten. The protection of the herd is how they survived for thousands of years.
