Hi all! Just got home! What a glorious day, 75, sunny and a light breeze!

Got another ride in today. Ventured out even a bit further today! Down the busier blacktop to hit the dirt. I was gone about 2 hours! Keep in mind Jay Jay lumbers along. but neither here nor there, he did terrific! We went placed brand new to him. There were times I had to remind myself to pay attention, as I clearly do not know him yet...but he's so comfortable I didn't want the rode to be over, and I can tell he likes being used.. Honestly when I ride him, I feel like we've been a team for sometime now.

I feel very, very blessed that I finally found him!

I think dogs also KNOW when people are not feeling well too. I know when I had my last hip surgery, ,y dog layer in bed with me and seemed to even know which side was the "off limits" side. Amimals are truly amazing.....mAy be why I prefer them over humans! Hahaha

Thru the ears of Jay Jay....

Very nice Nicker. I am very happy for you! I know about being blessed as I was blessed last Oct with my mare. When you find that one, it is amazing! Yay! Keep pictures coming!

Lori, "A SADDLE" ?! I cannot wait to see!

Lilypoo, not sure what to think about this "I'll be 40 in August and am overweight and out of shape, so I figured I belong here rather than with the 30-somethings. ;)" . But welcome anyway, . I hope you do not think just because we are over 40 that we are automatically these things.

Rick, not sure what to think about green flys, bluck!

Sherry, beautiful scenery!

to everybody!

Well we have rain here but just next door in Alberta half of the province is in a state of emergency. My daughter is in Banff and the highways are closed indefinately with mudslides after torrential rains. First it was fire now their apartment is flooding. Canmore (where the fire was) is in trouble with the river cresting the banks. People have lost their back yards and some of them homes. My cousin in High river has been evacuated due to floods. Some amazing video

I've been traveling and lurking.

We did get some good news, my daughter Ev has been cleared to start riding horses when we return from vacation the first week of July. Speaking of which, I'm off tomorrow and then we leave for a week+.

Great news about your daughter!

I , too, am off tomorrow and then leave for Mrytle Beach for a week on Saturday. I am spending tomorrow cleaning and then spending the rest of the day with Isabella. I love vacations but I really miss my animals when I am gone. I will miss hubby too because this is my girls week at the beach. Hubby goes with me in September!

Hunter- I hope your family and friends are safe. I'm farther north, and although it has rained pretty much every day for the last two weeks, we don't have any flooding here. Southern Alberta is a mess though! The news just said more rain is expected tonight, but hopefully will taper off after that.

My thoughts and prayers are with those from so many communities that have been displaced from their homes. We are all hoping for some sunshine!

On briefly,ran thru posts.Can't reply to all,but liked-liked-liked! Know I read every one, & send my good thoughts,if not a direct posting. Wanted to say "hi" before I go bill figuring/pay (..eewww...), & have a joke:

Guardian Angel came to a couple that were both 60 years old on their anniversary day. Angel said "This is a special day,you've come a long way. I can grant one wish to each of you, what you most dearly like?"
The woman said "Oh! A trip around the word, with nice hotels, & enough money to shop, eat & have fun!"
TA-BOOM, tickets & money for all she wanted appeared in her hands.
The man said "I want a wife that 30 years younger than me."
TA-BOOM, he was suddenly 90 years old.

Heh heh...

Hunter, prayers for your family. That flooding is so devastating it's hard to imagine unless you see it. I hope the situation improves immediately and all are safe.

TJ, great joke! That man got just what he asked for and certainly everything he deserved! LOL

Hi! I'm 43 and got back into riding about 8 years ago. Sadly My guys spend more time being yard ornaments than being ridden due to work, kids the work of having to keep up the farm and life in general. Now that my kids are teenagers and don't need me as much I want to get my guys out of retirement and get back in the saddle more regularly.

I really just want to trail ride- relaxing and enjoying nature as I did as a kid. I never had any formal training- pretty much just watched a lot and asked a lot of questions growing up. I showed as a kid in local shows with my welsh pony and QH doing pretty well for not knowing what I was doing- I didn't know I didn't know!

Want to take some lessons for myself- now that I know I don't know my confidence isn't what it use to be and I don'r want to hut myself or my horses....
