    There is no way I can stay unconfused. Everybody needs to put their name in their signature. If you don't want it in every thread, just type it in for us old folks with less than stellar memory.

    Great job Sandi.

    And thanks to Celeste for keeping up the list of names every page I was copying the last list, but you kept on it.

    Today I was woken at 7, grrrr to go with Brad and the kids to a VW car show. Good lord, Brad zones in on the rusted out stands of people selling stuff, and then there was drag racing too, it took them all about 15 seconds to get to nowhere. Holy bored out of my skin. Brad claims it's how he feels at horse shows, oh purlease, it's not close to being that boring.

    Welcome Nilesteresa. Generally a good bunch here, well then there's Stan. :)

    Too many to respond to..Glad to see so many posts since I left work Friday.
    Welcome to the new tribe members and hope you enjoy the readings as well as join in the antics. PLEASE take everything with a smile and a laugh.

    I read all of the posts with a smile and glad everyone had a great weekend.

    I had DW and MIL go pick up a couple of rolls of hay Friday while I was at work and happened to look it over Saturday to find a severe case of mildew, sticks and pine cones in one of them. I was disgusted! He will be getting a call today.

    I took Saturday off(rare choice for me to make) and hung out with my daughter Amber and the horses. We worked on their loading skills and they did good for the most part. I had all of them to the point of wanting to go in the trailer, but never let them go all four in. I made the mistake of thinking I would only be out there for an hour or two and ended up being out there from 7- 11:30. I didn't eat breakfast and only took one bottle of water so when 11:30 rolled around the heat took it's toll on me. I got back to the house, got food and cool water in me then took a nap til around 2:30 and went back out for some grooming before getting Amber up on Doc for some bareback riding.
    Yesterday was on and off rain so I lounged in front of the tv watching old westerns all day. Didn't go to church since Michelle's foot was really bothering her and she had the tail end of a migraine.

    Pics to make up for the rambling..

    Roadyy, glad to hear you had a good weekend! Do you normally feed round bales? It looks to me like you probably got a bale that was laying on the bottom on the ground. Usually the out side of a round bale does look pretty rough but after the first layer it is all good. I'm sorry if I'm telling you something you already know.
    I've had my horses eat a hole straight through the center! I always say it looks like a hostess commercial "where's the cream filling"

    Yes, I leave 2 round bales out for 24/7 access for 6 horses who only see the inside if a stall at feeding time. This was a new supplier who has been advertising tifton 9 for $35 a round so I sent DW and MIL with both trucks to get it. I guess I learned my lesson and showed Michelle what to look for from now on if I send her for more. Make them roll it to look for anything that bad as well as sticks and pine cones. I still need to call and see what the guy has to say for it.

    You are right about me knowing about the outer edges, but this was a couple of layers deep as if it has been sitting on the ground under piles for a very long time or in low lying area where it was in water. I think he saw a couple of suckers who didn't know any better and dumped his worthless hay on them. I'm going to set it on fire this evening when I get home with the premium coastal to replace it. I would much rather pay $55 a roll for premium coastal than $35 for crap from someone who deals like that.
