    Got home from church yesterday and knew we had work to do. My daughter and grandson moved in with her boyfriend(soon to be baby daddy) so we wanted to get the dresser and night stands out of the storage building to give them. Ofcourse they have to be in the very back right corner under all the other stuff.

    Decided it needed to be reorganized and sort the useless stuff so EVERYTHING came out into the driveway. Had some old welding rods so I bent them into S hooks to hang stuff from the rafters and make more walk room. Ended up with a bed full of stuff to take off to the incinerator this morning. We got done some where around 6:30 or so, just in time to get all of animals fed before dark.

    Here is most everything pulled out into the driveway.There are stacks of stuff between those to the left all the way to the shed.

    Here are the beginning pics of reorganizing the shed.

    My MIL met us for lunch after church as my father's day gift. We had Jessa with us as always and she had a taste of chocolate covered strawberries.

    Oh,, remembered someone asked about guys riding bareback. I worked with Doc and Littleman on trailer loading before working with Trusty. After having a positive loading with him getting the 3rd foot in 6 times I decided to go for a quick ride. I didn't want to walk him all the way to the house from the middle pasture so up I go with halter and lead rope. Rode around all three pastures with a couple of trots and canters mixed in for good measure.

    Here is the herd as of right now.

    Hey guys!, just a very, very quick post as I just got back from the barn and RWALLY, REALLY, REALLY need to redd up this house!!! It's a disaster! Ever since I came home from TX I've been dropping and going....my suitcase is still full! Ugh!

    Alex...aw, I love you! I feel like I've aged a bit over the last two school years...so saying I look young made my day! Curious to how old I look...nobody ever wants to say.....I'm 42!

    NVR, I got my shirt at an old grocery style store in the middle of the national forest. Ya know the kind of store that looks like it's going to fall into the ground...but they do a booming business and sell anything under the sun..

    Roadyy, yes, I'm loving my guy. Going over to bathe them both...been going to bathe Rainn, still working on the skin thing, so I might as well see how he handles what ever I throw at him (not literally of course) I'm thinking why beat around the bush horse....this is how it's going to be.... he's acclimated well so far, so I don't think I am over doing it. Great pics!!!

    My husband is still in awe of how happy I am over this whole thing....I've always told him as a kid I spent hours alone with the animals.....now he gets it!

    Hence why I need to off here....clean this house...he's been a peach...but if it stays too messy too long...he may turn grumpy. need to keep him happy...redding up is the least I can do ow that I am off.....he does most everything else....I think I am a bit spoiled....

    So much for short!........ Have a good all!

Now if we could just get a CostCo-our nearest one is almost 100 miles away & that is too far to bring much home in the heat., much less pay for the gas-haha.
    we are about 15 miles from "town" there is a small grocery store and a Boomgars kinda like a TSC in closer and we are getting a bigger grocery store soon

    You have to smile while riding a Paso, it's a rule! I have to admit the first time I cantered my Paso in an open field I was giggling. But then I am pretty silly
    oh sorry there is another farmchic :P

    I ran across your thread asking for things to check when looking at possible horses and got a headache trying to understand why they felt everyone should be able to look and feel over a horse to be able to know it is the right horse or doesn't show any signs of holes. Or expecting everyone to have a strong knowledgeable horse person readily available to go look at every horse at any moment you call on. I see great info being posted by these same people else where to show they have knowledge, but these times show their arrogance in their long noses they look down on us with. I have more empathy for them than I do sympathy for us having to deal with it from them.

    I feel the same way!!
    I am afraid to post even a simple question cause I feel like I get bashed to bits in any thread I start.

    I am getting ready to post pictures of the Turn outs at the Barn. Rick has had some good suggestions for me but I want to know what everyone thinks. I will post in a moment.
