Hi ya Nicker. I have kids and step kids. They come and go and none ride as of yet. I think its not in the cards for my 16 and 17 yr olds but of the 9 and 10 yr olds the 9 yr old shows interest so maybe some day. Thanks for the compliment on my ride photos. I love your photos as well.

After lunch we went swimming in the pond...........

Next time I am bringing a floaty. That is my son in the water. He is 16. Our internet is down right now. **** dish! But I am cheating. LOL, that is what my son calls it. I am hooked up through my phone as a modem. Gotta love technology.

Took hubby dinner since he is working a double. **** I am a good wife. Takes me 45 minutes to get there, gah!

So, what is everyone up to??? It is still hot here, 89*.

Oh forgot to add, my DH will ride with me. But when he is not here I go alone.

Dang my mind is going. Was also going to add that the reason my first two don't ride is because my ex husband didn't like horses. So I got back into them three years ago after meeting my now husband. He supports me 100%. I just adore him!

Dang ex's!! Lol

I was engaged to a guy when I was VERY horse HATED him!! She would throw him every time, and if he showed up at a competition, I would always place lower than I normally would....should have taken her clues early on that he was a real jerK!!

Today when my cousin was checking out the horses, DH was in the barn too....Rainn kept flinging her nose at him as if to say...hey you, give me a pat! . Guess what....he did!!! first time! He's getting more comfortable! YEA!

Wow! Beautiful pond. I'm really not a fan of swimming in things where I can't see the bottom.... I afraid turtles will come up and bite me.

And NVR, you ARE a good wife! Wow! you go girl!

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.

Great weekend all around is the way it reads to me. The humidity here makes you feel 20 pounds heavier as you try to breathe. I keep forgetting to get pics of Trusty's wound to post up, but I don't know that you want to see that right now. It's still a little puffy and caked up with the repeated adding of medicine and backing powder.

I work 10 hours today then off for my vacation through Sunday. I am hoping to get some riding in each morning between Doc and Littleman since Trusty is hurt. I turned him out with the other horses now and he is doing fine. He hasn't limped any in several days now even when the farrier was here Friday to trim him and 3 of the others. Boo was the main one I was concerned about, but they said he was semi pro at it with 2 little pull backs before standing through the whole thing, including lifting his feet for her as she ran her hand down his leg.

Will try to log in from time to time while home to see how every is doing throughout the week.

Happy Independence Day to Canada today and if I don't get online Thursday then Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans.

Stan and Lori, I have all but decided to fix up the float I traded the four wheeler for and get a slant load trailer.

I think slant loads are much easier.

Hey all. Same ole same ole here. We had company Sunday so spent part of Friday and Saturday cleaning. Ended up they left by 4 yesterday and hubby had a meeting so I headed out to the barn. I had a pretty productive day considering I got up at 5 to cook a ham dinner for Sunday's lunch then after 4 worked on the area I had been avoiding I am almost finished with it, worked until 10:30 but ran out of poly so had to quit. This morning I'm headed in to get more so I can try to finish up hopefully by tomorrow. It went better and faster than I thought on the scaffolding, I would just text the kids and they would come roll the scaffolding down the aisle so I didn't have to keep climbing up and down. And I used my mounting block to stand on to reach what I couldn't off the scaffolding alone. We have lots of leftovers so I'm looking forward to being able to work and not worry about making time to cook dinner for a couple of days. And I want to use part of the leftover ham to make a big pot of green beans and nu potatoes Yum!!

Quick question, has anyone ever listed a horse for sale on this site? I'd like to downsize and was just wondering what your experience has been. I've used several of the popular pay sites before.

Also, once I get the stall area finished I'd really like to do something with the arena. I'm looking for suggestions. I want to paint or stain at least the bottom up 3-4 ft. And thought a darker color would be best but don't want to go to dark because the black rubber footing already makes it dark enough. Have you seen arenas that were painted? Thanks!

And one more, still looking for ideas for decorating the stall area I have some metal signs but need lots more stuff so it doesn't look so bare. Has anyone ever made anything with barbed wire?? Might try something like that.

Hope everyone is doing well horses and humans! Sorry some of you are having a heat wave, we had it about a week ago and now it has cooled off here and I am enjoying it!

Lori update us on the show girl!!!! With pictures!!

Alex did your boys have games over the weekend and did Mom get home safe?

Koolio the barn looks great!!!!

Rick are you going somewhere on vacation or hanging out at home?

TJ- Hope you have a good ride today.

NVr- the pond is beautiful! Wish ours was as big and as clear, we have some flower/weed growing on ours and it get's worse every year.

That's all I can remember right now

It is a stacation. I have the dually to either repair at location or haul to the house to repair, Ford has a tensioner pulley making noise, boards on the barn needing fixed, house needs pressure washed, some siding on the porch is falling and the yard and pasture need cutting as my riding mower is down.

I'll work harder on my vacation than I do here at work.

I love being at home. I especially love when hubby is at home working on his honey-do list

It always feels good to get those little things wrapped up around the house.

Hoping to ride this morning before the heat comes. Hubby going to do some pressure washing at barn. Surprise BO when she gets back. We went out and bought new patio furniture yesterday. Lovin it!
