But I can make the Kid go help:P
You could drive the truck that other people are putting hay in. That's what I used to do during hay making. (We buy our hay now.)

OMG! I just read this on my cousins fb page. Had to share..........

Two hillbillies walk into a restaurant. While having a bite to eat, they talk about their moonshine operation.
Suddenly, a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough.
After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in real distress. One of the hillbillies looks at her and says, Kin ya swallar?'
The woman shakes her head no. Then he asks, 'Kin ya breathe?'
The woman begins to turn blue, and shakes her head no.
The hillbilly walks over to the woman, lifts up her dress, yanks down her drawers, and quickly gives her right butt cheek a lick with his tongue.
The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm, and the obstruction flies out of her mouth.As she begins to breathe again, the Hillbilly walks slowly back to his table. His partner says, 'Ya know, I'd heerd of that there 'Hind Lick Maneuver' but I ain't niver seed nobody do it!'

Been catching up on posts;happy birthday Rick! Am way pooped but happy (hope this next work week doesn't take the happy away). Did my cleaning,front pens didn't get done yesterday,so 2x as much there,but got thru it (was hard today;after some time w/this,maybe will get easier),then did a few water troughs that needed done. One of them was for young miss BlackBeauty. She was very curious.Got her away from me,then when was scraping @ algae,felt a tug on my right jean's leg! Immediate response was a loud "NO!" & clapped my hands. Wee thing backed up,then came back,& swear she was giggling. Tapped her on the chest w/"back up" several times till she finally did it. She doesn't know this stuff yet,& guess she just wanted to play (which she finally got to do,once the trough was full;apparently water is great fun). I continued w/the trough next to her,while she whinnied & wanted to be paid attention to. Petted her quite abit. Janice said she needs more attention,her owner isn't out much.
Then: got my lesson! Told Janice earlier that I had in mind to walk on my own. I got out Addie, & she got out Tommy (20something,brown/white,she said he'd be Navajo Paint if he was registered[he has markings for what grassland he's allowed on]).He's just abit taller than Addie,but way bigger everywhere else(hoofs 2x the size of Addie's,as a gauge,Janice thinks there's Draft in there somewhere). I got on Addie,who's wiggly/rock'n'rolly,&walked (barebackpad) w/Janice on lead rope.Worked on my balance. Then she got me on Tommy's big broad back. My butt & legs fit much better,& his movement is really smooth. After a few turns around the paddock (& Janice having me lean all the way down on Tommy's neck,then back on his butt[which hurt,as my back is messed up from my job,but bet that helped],& tried eyes-closed to feel movement,but got dizzy), she unhooked the lead rope,told me how to how the reins,& I walked him several times around the paddock w/Janice walking @ his head. even tried a couple of turns. Tommy felt more comfortable,didn't feel like I was gonna pitch off the sides. Did alot of work w/opening my diaphragm to keep my shoulders back (as crouched forward a couple of times in fear-response),keeping my legs gently "noodled" around him on the pad until I pressed for a forward,& basically just tried to feel it..& I did remember to breathe!
Janice said she hadn't wanted to start me out on Tommy,because of the fear-factor(well,he's big,if short),but that he may now be my lesson horse. He has a big stride,big body,solid feet,& feels the rider (he stopped a few times,when I became unsure,& looked to Janice. She said he wanted to be sure that she was ok w/me being unsure,so that he could be sure; he's just leaning to be a therapy horse). This was a good day.
So..there's my Monday new!

Onward & Upward, I'm Not Done Yet...

OMG that joke was a riot I am in tears. Copying that to my fb page for sure.

Lori so glad your daighter did so well, thats exciting.

TJ awesome news, keep at it. Was too hot to ride today. We went to pressure wash at barn but after a while hubby gave up and came home, too many people and things going on.

I went back to barn and put Hunter out in the back field as it was empty. He has to learn to stop and eat the grass. Will post video soon.

TJ, that's super wonderful news! I'm so very happy for you. Sounds like a great learning experience!!

Critter, congratulations to you daughter! Wow! What fun!

Went out to check on the troops....i silently snuck into the barn....they were in the stalls sleeping...albeit, they switched stalls....or should say....RAINN switched stalls! LMAO. She is such a bugger! She makes me giggle just looking at her...she gives those big eyes a blink at you as to say....what? what did i do?? funny, she has wanted that stall since Skye lived with us! She always try sneaking in there, it we had it rigged up for a cribber, so she had to stay put..

Anyway, I think we are all ok.

DH and I went on a blackberry search. There's a secret patch we gather from. I think by weeks end ill have enough for a coffee cake! yum!!

Critter, is the salon your own? Do you share chairs with others? Just curious, as my niece runs her own salon.

NVR, what does your DH do at the hospital? Mine works in the PT department. That is how we met...I was a patient!

Have a good night everyone!
