    [QUOTE=Ladytrails;2923490]Hunter, CW - I enjoyed the pictures. You're looking good, CW!

    Stan, that hole in the float looks like somebody was handling a firearm and shot the float. It's awfully nicely shaped for a random run-in with an object in the paddock. .

    Now you have got me thinking bullet hole. The float is parked at the end of a long drive in a straught line to the road. Now add in my profession A probation officer and responsible for a number of crims going to prison. I have at the moment one who sends messages out with new released men, he knows my address and he tells the parolees. We will be dealing with him in due course. But on close inspection it looks more like it was punched out, I think a bullet would have left a smaller hole and dammage further in which I will check later. Phew.

    Bugs settled this afternoon and the spell in the float did him some good. Backing him out he hops backwards like a rabbit, funny to watch but not safe for him.

    I walked him back in but this time when backing I kept stopping him, then starting, so he had to take one step at a time. Took him three shots to get the idea of walking out. He was loading great walking straight in no more dramatics so I'll see in the morning if how to load and unload has taken, then its hang on for dear life and ride.

    I also walked Stella up the ramp but just stood her there and let her relax. The tart knows what to do she just refuses, bit more training tomorrow on trying to get her to hook on to me.

    I have to dispatch a sheep in the morning. Does anyone want to see photos.

    Just an after thought, I had taken my sun glasses off this morning when Stella she left SWMBO and walked up to me. I wonder if being able to see my big blues made a difference. Ill try batting my eyes at her tomorrow.

    Hit the reply button by accident. Well it's storming here tonight, has been every evening since last week ir before, same thing predicted for all of next week. I'm so tired of being in the house. Had decided I was going to ride Judy when that cast came off, since I can break things just walking I might as well ride. :)
    Stan, you're back to Winter there in NZ aren't you. Saw footage of all the snow on TV last week.
    CW, you do look good:) sorry to hear about your brother and other things lately. We could take bets on who actually gets on a horse first :)
    Hunter, Hunter looks great!
    Alex S? I think, are you still not smoking? I really need to quit. I started Chantix before going to Disney, no side effects and was way down in number but then I didn't want to chance mixing it with the pain meds so stopped taking it and back up to a pack a day.
    Horse and pony doing great, Star the pony healed up very nicely from her chest wound and thank God Judy never seems to get into anything, knock on wood. For an old girl she is trouble free just annual vaccinations and regular farrior visits. Will go for now, if it ever quits raining everyday and I do ride I'll make sure somebody takes pictures.
    Y'all take care.

    The end of April my daughter insisted I had to go to Disney World with her and my granddaughter, Chloe. Really I wanted to stay home instead of having to board dogs and pay a horse sitter, but she kept on about how it's Chloe's first time, well my first time too but I'm not all into theme parks. Turns out I should've stayed home, broke my arm the first night, sprained foot, general bruises from a fall in the hotel parking lot. So I still didn't see much of Disney. Had surgery on the wrist when we got back to NC and just got the pins removed last week. It's amazing the stuff you can't do with one arm out of commission, like just putting your hair in a ponytail, couldn't do it. Anyway I promised the doctor last week if he'd let me wear just a brace instead of another hard cast that I wouldn't pull or push or tote hay. Yep, you know how long that promise will last.

    You need to go back, even if it's just to prove you can do it without the drama. Glad you enjoyed the break. No pun intended

    Wow, can't wait to see The Lone Ranger on the big screen. I do love watching anything with Johnny Depp :)
    I ordered this book off Amazon, " Whisper this...Not To Your Horse, To Yourself " by Smokie Brannaman (Bucks brother). Got it and finished it today. Can't really tell if there's some sibling rivalry there or not. Short book and pretty much the same common sense advice that so many give on Horse Forum. Don't buy green horses for a green rider, if you're not experienced don't be thinking you're going to start a young horse or cure a problem horse. No new wisdom really, I was a little disappointed. He was very outspoken and not at all a fan of "famous clinicians" or wasting money on most clinics or the "tools" sold by them. Uses the expression "bull $#it a lot. Decent read but mostly what we hear on this forum everyday :) I still like Buck!

    I skim read, so I know I missed a bunch.

    TJT, going back to read your post now. Are you hurt?

    Nicker and Hunter, please don't apologize for ranting, that's what friends can do with friends.

    Hunter, I am sorry.

    Nicker - F him!!! I'd kill him. He's not family to you, he's your Mom's hubby. I'd rip him new one, then hurt him somewhere, if he made it back, he'd be apologizing. No one disrespects my Mum, if I have to hold my tongue often around Mum, everyone else sure as heck can.

    Why don't you feel that you can just get him for how he is treating her?




    So Mum's visit is nearly over, I am so sad. As I don't see her that often, it was 3 years last time, when it gets to the end of visit, I am counting off days, and it's just sad. Tomorrow we are going to a rodeo, Sun I pick up the kids, Mon kid 1 has baseball, and Tues they leave. All days are accounted for, and that's just sad.

    WEll, I couldn't get another full day of work in with all this rain like I did yesterday. They are forcing me to go home at 8:30. Will see if I can find something to get into for the rest of the day so I'm not sitting around the house twiddling my thumbs. May actually sit on the front porch and watch the rain for awhile. Haven't done that in a long time. Relaxing in the swing.

    May get on later to see how everyone is fairing....


    P.S. Alex I may not agree totally with your position on the farrier, but do respect your opinion on that topic. Hope you didn't/don't take my comments there the wrong way. That would bother me.
