    Hi all! I can't believe it's nearly 1:00 p.m. Where does the day go?

    I got out to,the barnaround 7:30. It was cool and overcast....perfect for a ride!!! I put the super strength fly spray on, clipped on my new reins, and took off! It was probably the best ride yet. JayJay rode sound, even at a trot! It was SO nice we weren't bombarded with flies, and I can't believe the difference my new reins made! . The original pair were too short, like barrel riding reins. I ordered a braided set from Vally Vet. I've wanted braided reins since I was a kid!!! ( no kidding! ). I was able to ride comfortably without twisting my shoulders to keep the reins loose. He even seemed more comfortable, he dropped his head nice and low, and gave those contented blows thru the nose! . It was SOOOOO relaxing!

    On our way home, I saw a turkey fly out of the oats field into a low branch to chase off a lurking hawk! I suspecting the hawk had eyes for baby turkey drumsticks! it was neat to see. I've also been seeing a button buck around the same area, but not today.


    Was busy at the barn....totally cleaned rainn's stall to the bare floor. Gave her a treatment....if I don't stick with her skin treatments...she goes tight back to being bald!! Ugh!

    Unfortunately the end of my time at the barn left me aggravated.....my mothers DH ( and the D doesn't stand for DEAR) always seems to be hanging around. The two,of them are fighting....AGAIN, and he likes to,tell me what a BEEP she is! ya know...that's my mother you are talking about there buddy!

    he's also obsessed withy the weather....he'll come out four times to tell me,storms are coming, or they are tracking north of us....UGH!!! I DON'T care! I checked the computer before I left, I know what to expect!

    I don't know if he is that bored or what....but I want to be left alone....quit coming out to,small,talk with me......I really DO NOT LIKE him!!! he is lazy, he is mean to my mother...and there is nothing I can do,about it! And now that I have the horses there....I see him on a daily basis....UGH!!! Thanks for listening...as I really don't have anyone to speak to on this....I am her only kid. The most aggravating is that being at the barn is my "time away from it all" and he intrudes constantly! My portion of the barn is out back...he doesn't have to come out there, he does....continuously. Why???

    Any how...I'm bachin' it for the next couple,days. DH went to camp. Movie time!! Lol

    CW glad you are back.. Hope you get to ride!!

    TJ make sure that lady gives you a lesson! Maybe set a time for the lesson, so she can't back out for being too busy?!?!?

    Critter, glad you're a bit better. What does bre show?

    Sounds like a great morning for the most part. I was suppose to rain out at 8am with 95% of the yard, but extended it til 9 due to repair call then extended it to 12 just because and now talked them into letting me stay til 4. I did want to be at the house to talk with the farrier, but having a full 57 hour check come in next Wednesday night will be nice while on vacation.We are suppose to work 8 hours tomorrow, but are expecting the same type of thunder storms in the morning as well. We will see if I can pull it off again.

    Wife said Trusty was good this morning, still putting weight on the leg, albeit tenderly when turning in the stall. She was alone out there so waited to spray the medication and baking powder on while he was eating. I'll try to get a better pic this evening before putting another dose on him.

    Just spoke with wife and Boo did exceptional with his trimming. He is the one who refused to let you touch his legs before the accident and he had to let us handle him to doctor him up. Said he jerked back a couple of times at first then was fine with everything the farrier did to him. Kept his head low and relaxed while wife stroked his neck and forehead.

    Trusty did good also even with his recent accident causing him a sensitive leg.

    I'm glad everything went off without a hitch as I was worried I hadn't done enough ground work with Boo before the farrier could come back.

    Sorry for the rant earlier....I take it for LONG stretches, and then I can't take much more...and I go off....today was my day....in writing, it sounds silly....but over long term...it grows frustrating...

    At least I had a WONDERFUL ride?
