Alex, glad your visit with your mother went well and the kids sound amazing for their gift to you.
I must have missed the flirting you mentioned. Can you please point it out so I can go back and copy/paste it to savor often? Lol

TJ, I hope you getting an earlier start helps with the heat and also hope you are able to get a quick ride in afterwards before she has to get back to the camp preparations.

Marcia, welcome to the family. Love the pic and story of you getting to us. Hope we can make you feel right at home with us as you have for Grace.

NM71, I have a feeling JayJay will be the same under saddle at your place as he was at Kris' place for you. I don't see him changing unless you start allowing him to get away with small little disrespectful acts that seem harmless at the time or because he is in a new place. That is usually how it starts for those who complain about the ones who aren't drugged or starved, changing when at new place.

I hope you figure out something to help Rainn with her lameness so she can be an enjoyment on the trails again.

Stan, hate to hear you didn't get enough rain soon enough to get the grass needed for Stella and Bugs. Hope you enjoy the freedom of unlimited red meat while SWMBO is out playing with the other cats.

My mother will be at my house by the time I get off work today and my niece should be there around 6-7pm with one of her girl friends. They will all be here til next Wednesday since my cousin is marrying her man on Saturday at the beach.

We don't show, so I don't need to worry about that with that b l stuff you talked about. Do you know how much you use of that? How come your horse is on it?

Rainn seems to enjoy being used but we get so far out and she starts limping. She eventually walks out of it,, but it kills me to watch.

Alex, great shot!, have fun!,
Isabella was a polo pony her whole life. Worked very hard. She now has arthritis. Vet recommended joint supplements and to keep her moving. 24 hour turnout and light riding.

I started her on SmartPak Smart Flex but the price started to get to me. I found a comparable supplement at Tractor Supply that was cheaper. It has 1000mg of MSM and other good stuff.

DuMOR® Joint, 2.815 lb. - Tractor Supply Online Store

Then I added the B-L pellets.

She gets a scoop of each, every day. I think each scoop is an ounce. I just follow the recommendations.

Morning everyone!

I'm relaxing a bit this morning before rushing over to the barn. It's a really nice cool morning so the troops can stay out. Actually now that I say that, I should run over, throw the saddle on while the day is cool and clear, as well as my mom is still there....for some reason, I need a mothers comfort when I jump on the first time! AND I think her DH will be GONE....I always feel he is a bit judgy...just her and I would be good!

Roadyy, I'm being very careful to make sure ol Jay Jay remains respectful, and made sure my MOTHER does the same!! Lol. I'm really glad she took that horsemanship class with me a few months back so I can reference things!!

Ok, better scoot!. Have a sun shiny day everyone!! Our weather this week is to be perfect!! YEEHAA!!

Good morning all!

I'm jealous of all the riding going on, all I've been doing is work, work, work. Maybe over the weekend I'll saddle up my little pony. I had the farrier out on Monday and had shoes put back on him so he's good to go.

Storybookfarm- Welcome! Can't wait to learn more about you and your farm. We HS too! I always tease the other HS Mom's that when the last kid graduates we are having a party for US! All kidding aside, I wouldn't want it any other way.

Rick- Thank you so much for the info, I'm going to look at that site again later. Have you ever used it on concrete?? I like the idea of being able to choose a color as everything in my barn is brown. Awhile back I found this huge metal flower at an antique shop that I want to hang on the old barn. The kids call it my hippy flower. LOL
If anyone else has any info on the herculiner product or similar products please chime in, I need all the advice I can get.

Stan- It wouldn't hurt to throw some veggies on the grill w/you steak (your wife told me to say that)

Alex- love the picture and your comment about your smile had me laughing, you all look great. And hey Hooray for you for getting Stepdad to sit on the couch!!!! You need to frame that one

If I forgot anything or anyone- Sorry!

I put Rainn on a senior formula supplement and it has 1000 or 3000 grams or mg...can't remember in it. I say an improvement in her gimpiness, but really not enough to ride her long or consistently. Btw, she had a fence accident and has a lot of scar tissue around her pastern area of her front leg. I wa thinking of taking her off the senior formula (I don't see any benefits, just a lot of $$$$ out of my pocket) and switch her to 10,000 g/ mg whatever the serving is...of pure MSM.

From what I have researched, it seems to really help in soreness. She is still very viable, so I want to help her stiffness. Once I put her on a day of bute, she was SO happy and really WENT. Will the higher dose of MSM help like that? I really want her comfortable. And I want to use her!

Thanks!!
Neither Cody or doc have joint issues but with riding as much as we do and age I figured I could help prevent it.
I do know it helps my friends barrel horse. Bute if given long term is not good on the gut. So I don't give unless I have to. Btw I just love jay jay

Happy to hear that things are going well for most.
New horses, guests, shopping, even the kids being thoughtful. Hope that more of you get some nice rides in. Couple more days & it will officially be summer. It's already pretty hot here in AZ. The neighbor's cat has taken her kittens back home & at least 1 is already spoken for. DH hauled in 3 loads of water yesterday, so that chore is done for awhile.

Stan-enjoy your steak & your peace & quiet. Do you still have a cat hanging around? Hope R has a good time w/the music making.

I've never tried it on concrete before. There are concrete sealants and paints for carports and shops that you can add paper confetti to add looks to. You could do the black and white squares for the winner circle and all kinds of different ideas.

Also I think Alex and family were at her parent's rental place if I read her post right so he hasn't made it to her couch yet. Lol

Rick I hope you enjoy your mom :)
I sure wish mine was only a 4 hour drive from me.. I miss mom so much


Well Rick saw it but I will tell the rest of you I was a DA today. I thought I would look cute and wear sandals today rather than boots. I went to feed today and NO I do not go in with horses with open toes. But I do work around the JD gator and I stubbed my big toe and cracked the nail to the point it will come off :( . It does not hurt really but it looks terrible
