    Will need to catch up, but wanted to share a pic from tonight. It's a bit blurry, but you can get an idea of how nice JayJay is filling out.

    ..peekin' again..CountryWoman,thank you for starting this thread,it's been very good for me,w/so many kind & supportive folks. Am sorry for your loss,know how it feels.
    Thank you Sherry,for your post (pages back now!) I WILL remember to breathe!
    Lori, trust by now you're feeling better. I hate "down spaces". BTW, Nebraska must be getting the rain that's skipping Colorado. We're a tinderbox right now. TG abit cooler next week (my girl kitty cries @ me, like "make it stop!" wish I could.)
    Stan (& all), I haven't visited the over 50s thread. My operations & scars are from 9 yrs ago,& tho likely should go to a doctor...can't afford it, & don't want to know what's "wrong" anyway. I just keep on truckin'.
    Just keepin' on keepin' on w/my weird job, &...get on Addie Monday!

    Sending a cyber hug to you!!!


    CW, I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. My condolences.


    I am not supposed to share photos of the kids, but what the heck, it's not like anyone would have any idea who he is from this. From his All Star game, in the pro stadium (he's the batter).

    Country Woman, it's so good to hear from you that you're all settled in your new home and walking a lot - that's great news. My condolences on the news of your brother's passing and your siblings' homes being lost in the flood.

    TJ, hold the trainer to her promise for that ride on Monday - it will be real easy for her to think she's too busy, etc. and can't work it in, since it's a holiday week. She's probably having to reschedule some lessons. But with your schedule, if you miss Monday it'll feel like a long wait for the next one, especially since you're looking forward to this so much!

    Roadyy, don't know much about mules. I think they're smarter than most humans, I've seen some in shows and trail rides around KC in this area; they will not do stupid stuff, like eat so much that they get sick or go through quicksand or run blindly into trees and buildings and hurt themselves. They're very self protective. I have watched some documentaries and training videos of Meridith Hodges, who has trained mules to dressage levels. She has some great teaching for people who need to work with mules. My grandfather used them for hunting; they would lay a blanket across a barbed wire fence (or whatever), settle the mule in front of the blanket, give the signal and the mule would jump from a standstill over the fence. Then resaddle and off they'd go after the raccoon that the hounds had treed. A good huntin' mule was a great prize.

    Critter, I think part of our blue mood is the rainy days, no riding, so much going on, worrying about getting the hay in (when it stops raining, please God), and all the other stress of living. Hang in there, delegate to others where you can, say 'no more' where you can, and steal a few minutes each day to do something that gives you a smile.

    Stan, you are incorrigible. I have probably told you that before. It's never clear whether you have one up on Ros or she has one up on you, but I'm staying tuned in to see who comes out ahead. As far as turning your back on Stella, the first part of that lesson is to get her to move her feet, by 'pressuring' her in a corral or round pen to move, until you release pressure and let her stop. Then turn your back, or turn your shoulder toward her as if to walk away. Good luck, it has been known to work!

    Nicker, JJ looks a lot better! He's also standing better - is this after his farrier visit? A big difference; his front feet are under him pretty squarely and he looks normal on his hind legs as well. Fingers crossed that thrush X gives you a sound horse!

    Alex, that is awesome about Kid #1. What a great experience for your family and it is so cool that your Mum wanted to go to the ball games!

    AnotherHorse Dad, any news on your daughter's rehabbing? Is she riding? Doing well?

    We're tractor shopping today and tomorrow. Narrowed it down to Kubota 46 HP and a John Deere 43 HP. Price is $6000 difference between the two, partly due to starting price and partly due to the difference in our Kubota trade-in. I would really like to get the JD but can't justify the thousands it would take. Kubota is slightly better-built, perhaps, with steel hood and it just feels heavier. The JD has amenities, though that will make it very easy for me to use by myself, like the quick detach front loader, truly amazing compared to the one we have now which is a threat to life and limb when it comes off. We'll see. Some good financing deals end Saturday on the Kubota so we need to decide whether or not we are making a decision this weekend....

    The hole. She did it. I have to pay for the repair and then she gets to do it again. And what do I get, that **** smile.

    Not sure how it happened it looks as though something solid went through it and most likely not a stone. But she did it and I aim to get some miles out of it.
    A man has to take the advantage while he can. I expect some smart comments so hit me with it.
