    I must be silly too because when he broke into a canter, it took me a few minutes to realize we were cantering. It was so smooth! I just started giggling like a little girl. Loved it!

    Back in highschool while taking metal trades at the vo-tech. Carrying a sheet of sheet metal and it caught on the table vise and my hand slid down the edge cutting down to the bone on 2 fingers. My thumb, index and middle finger on my right hand do not have feeling in them due to getting my hand caught in a conveyor belt system. I can drop a 5lb sledge hammer on that part of my hand and only feel the pressure pulling on the good parts close to my ring and pinky fingers. Not too mention all the money I used to win by playing knife games stabbing between my fingers as a dumb teen.

    I have an area that stays muddy behind my barn as well. The horses have over 10 acres that they could stand in, but they prefer the muddy place. I am not sure what to do about it. Digging out the mud would only make it worse. I don't like the idea of concrete; it is harder on the horses than the mud is.

    I agree Celeste I started a thread but it seems that everyone is worried about the 17 boy who is a drama queen lol so no one is looking at it.
    I think I need to get the bobcat in there and get the slope right then add some pea gravel and tamp it down. Then add a sand or dirt the allows drainage. I say I but really it would be the BO to do It I don't get paid to fix their mistakes. But if he'll pay I will.

    Got home an hr1/2 ago,& just read posts of today,& "liked liked liked!" You'all are great; so no,Lori,am not leaving,glad to be here,& appreciate Nickers' "no judging" comment (in view of other areas.) I feel that here,no judging,& that I'm accepted.So there! Feel I can ask any questions whatsoever.
    And (sound the trumpets) cleaned ALL the pens,18 horses! Not as hot today,but still sucked down the water bottle & tho didn't stick my head in a water trough,did hose my head & hat several times.Took a break 2/3 thru,went to tackshed & ate my yogurt.Did it tho,got it done.
    Then took a break,cooled off,went & got Addie.Groomed him very well to spend some time w/him (Janice took one look,said "Dang,you know what you're doing,I'm going to go do supplemental feeding"),& I did know enough to not let him mutual-groom me(which he tried,as he was so delighted w/the process!). After that plopped on my helmet,led Addie to the round-pen,&w/Janice on leadrope,got on..didn't barf,but the butterflies were intense. I felt like an idiot,but Janice reminded me that a traumatic crash has that effect. So,trusted.Walked a few paces,then a few more (this is all on a bareback pad,Janice wants me to feel the movement,& not rely on stirrups to feel "safe").Got off(mounting block),then decided to get right back on,& asked Janice to do a smallish circle.That was enough to put myself down into Addie's walk,to feel the "rocking",& it was good.Then I dismounted,being worn out from the morning,& it was all "good enough".Seems odd that 9 yrs ago I was able to do a fast posting trot w/no problem,but that's water under the bridge! Very happy w/my progress today.
