    Yes she is a good looking horse but I really do have to get bugs up to speed for the coming season and won't achieve that if having loading issues with Stella. While I was working with Stella Bugs was relaxed and leaning back on the rear support bar in the float. No issue for him and the further away from Stella the better he will get. Nothing like a women to lead a man astray. :) I will get a trainer in to get her started again but out she goes.

    NV2many, I think it was Nickermaker with her new gelding. Got the NM-type names mixed up. I can't even keep the handles straight, let along our real names.... Bless her heart, I think she knew I was talking about her JJ because she sent me an answer about having her farrier look for thrush again.

    Between bad weather and a very sore neck, I haven't ridden since last Monday. Visits to the massage therapist and the chiropractor have not given me much relief. The good news is that nothing (except sleeping) seems to make it much worse either, so I went riding anyways. I don't know if it was the placebo effect, or the motion relaxed my neck and shoulder muscles, but I actually felt better after riding than I had before! You gotta love all the health benefits of being around horses.

    I am so glad I rode today, as this week will be a big and hectic week. Tomorrow, I have a second interview for the job I previously applied and interviewed for. It is also DH's birthday, but he may be going down to Calgary to help out his company in the flood aftermath. In anticipation, I made red velvet cupcakes and a nice dinner tonight. Tuesday is my last day of work before summer break, so my office must be completely cleaned out. Wednesday, my family arrives from Arizona and BC for my daughter's graduation. Seven extra people in the house will be fun, but crazy too. Thursday is the day of my daughter's graduation banquet and ceremony ( and Safe Grad too, but lets not talk about that). Friday we get ready for a big family and friends grad / barn party at our place so it will be a busy day of mowing, trimming, polishing, decorating and cooking. Saturday is party day (I have a big slushy pail of Margeritas waiting for then). Sunday my daughter runs in the Spartan Race and Monday is Canada day, lesson day and a party at the stable! Tuesday, I will sleep again...

    I don't see an alternative. I've had to deal with skin issues with her and the off and on loading problems. If I could sort it out I doubt if I would part with her. However I have come to the conclusion Stella and I will never have the partnership I want and am developing with Bugs. Its a shame, But s--- happens. I will not let her go to just anyone, there has to be a hook up to any new owner so Stella is assured of a reasonable chance of settling. I'm not even going to try and get my money back so long as the new owner has the right attitude towards her.

    Had a great time with Mum so far, I have pics on my phone, but I need to go to bed. I will email them to myself and share with you all.

    So far, we went to kid 1's baseball game, my Mum had no idea what she was cheering, other than the kid - so she just went with the crowd and was super loud.

    Lots of shopping, gawd she can spend some money. But I guess I have a horse.

    Carrots to Lucas - who loves Mum and will cross the river for her. I don't give him carrots like that, so I get leg wet. She just calls him, and the turd comes running.

    Dinner with inlaws tonight. I was with Mum all day, who is a snob, I came down dressed and Mum said 'oh no' - erm that's the best I've got - off to Target in a hurry, and dress and shoes bought - you are kidding right, apparently not.

    Lovely night out with inlaws, and thankfully Mum didn't parent them.

    So photo of my normal shoes on the outside and Mum approved shoes on the inside, and this was a compromise as they are not heels.

    Good Lord!!!
