What more can I say except, you go for it girl, you throw him a kiss.

You just posted in the over 50s threads. GASP!!! Cheater!

In serious news, Stan, I'd protect my pasture too.

I still hate you. :) Love you really.

Good morning all and welcome to our home Lily. We hope we can make you comfortable and filled with the desire to stick around.

NM71, He looks fabulous under you with that smile on your face. He really does have a gentle face and you can see him paying attention to you. I am so glad JayJay was able to find his way to you so he could watch out for you and help build you up.

Melinda, the pic is perfect. Shows a beautiful connection between the two of you.

Hope all the broken piggys don't find themselves in a quarry with humpty.

Alex, glad it was another good day minus the few outburst by other adults.

Stan, glad you found hay and hopefully SWMBO doesn't get too rough with you over the hoof tracks,,or maybe its a hopeful she will for a good benefit on your part...hint

I had a great time catching up with my mother last night and forgot to get a picture.. She went out to the barns to feed the horses with me last night and got to meet Doc. He first walked with his head at my right shoulder as always while mom walked along my left shoulder. He dropped back then squeezed his head between us and kept his head lightly against mom's shoulder moving his head with her movement. It was amazing to see in person! She was caught off guard at first, but realized he wasn't wanting to hurt her and then put her hand under jaw and up on his right cheek. He wouldn't even go into his stall until she walked him in there. He never did that with me or Amber, he was all to happy to leave our side to go in and wait for his feed. To top it off, she went to walk out once I poured in his feed and he LEFT HIS FEED to walk after her. She had to stay in the stall with him while he ate. I couldn't believe what I was witnessing, still having a hard time understanding it. She has never been a horse person or even much of an animal person at all to be honest. We finally got them all fed and turned back out just to have him,who is lowest in the herd as the newby, stay by her side all the way to the gate and run off the rest from her, always aware of where she was so not to make contact with her while pushing the others off. We talked about it for over an hour with the kids before finally settling down to watch half of the recorded Heartland shows before going to bed.

On the way to work this morning with the truck window down, I got tagged in the left eyebrow by this little booger. Green horsefly that hit the mirror and bounced inside the truck to me. I see them flying around the horses all the time and usually kill them with the fly spray. They haven't been landing on them too much due to the fly spray or other repellents we keep on the horses, but they annoy them by buzzing all around them.

Hey all! Glad to see everyone is doing well. Welcome Lilypoo, stick around long enough and you'll be crazy like the rest of us

Alex- your crush has lips like Elvis is that why you love him so? It's great to hear that your boys have respect for your mom (and you) that speaks volumes about them doesn't it?

I don't have much to add, just been juggling housework and barn work. I don't know that I'll ever get done with this painting. Hubby did get started cutting hay, Yeah!!! I will feel so much better when the loft is full again. Sorry Stan, I'd send you a load if I could.

Roady- sounds like Mom might be wanting a horse soon

Here's a picture to make up for the lack of excitement.

Ok so Hubby cutting hay is not all that exciting but it's the best I can do this morning.

Good morning! Boy did I sleep soundly last night! This working horses bit is physically tiring!! A GOOD tired!! AND....bonus, I'm getting in shape fast!! if I say so myself...I'm liking the looks of my arms in thos last pictures I pasted....I've NEVER had arm definition, EVER and I used to be a big worker outer with the weights.

Tonight is our fend for yourself night....that's every Thursday at our house. That's where you decide where and what you want to eat and do so.. Our niece is back from training camp, so DH is going to take her out to eat....that leaves me feeling guilt free for staying at the barn LONGER!!

Roadyy, your story about your mom and the horse literally brought tears to my eyes. There's something spiritual about horses. she frail or sick? Animals have that innate sense ya know? To protect.

After all this talk about the 50s thread, I snuck over there to take a peek.....I mean I do have many friends in their 50s, my siblings are all there, and I do have a hip I qualify? not really, the small amount of posts I read were about falling off! I don't want to go there!!

Lilypoo, welcome! Great bunch of people here. Seems we all have something in common.....getting back into horses after a bit of a stretch.

Speaking of dad, in his somewhat senile state made a comment that he was that I would get back into horses now that I am 'older'. OLDER? I'm 42! I really think I am in the prime of my life! And having a good time while I am at it. In fact, I think for most, being in your forties your kids are mostly grown, your a bit more stable in your job, and have a little more disposable income for the horses....that my case anyway....exnAy the kid thing tho....we never had any. No matter, I was always the misunderstood child!

Critter, how are you ever going to put shoes on with that toe?

Alex, congrats on those kiddos of yours!! Wow! You've done super work. Times like these are when it shows AND matters!! Bravo!

Alex, a lot of us aren't saying much, but how can we? It is hard to follow an act like yours. Keep on entertaining us.

Nope, can't say that I saw it. Don't watch a lot of tv, mostly Netflix series.
