Oh my! No please don't, I've not had enough coffee for that yet this morning.

TJ so glad you had a good ride! Sounds like the new horse is a good match.

Alex, did you go home with Mom?

I think I worked too hard on Sunday and didn't have a very productive day yesterday (why do we do that?) but I did manage to finish the big wall and both ends above the doors. Today my goal is to poly above the stalls, stain the corners of the big wall and stain the boards on the end doors which I did not plan on doing but now that everything else is painted and those boards are not it stands out like a sore thumb.

I have a headache and my chest kinda hurts, either I'm getting sick or all the stain and poly is killing me.

Dropping in to say Good Morning. Another hot one today. We even have ash from the fire that is burning between us & town-they don't expect containment for another 10 days, but it is about 10 miles away. It is not the fire where 19 firefighters lost their lives-that one is to the east of me. Sending up a prayer for those families and their community.

Yes it is mine. It is inside a truck Travel center. Just one chair here So I work alone..
I have been thinking about doing One Chair rental but I am Very picky. I wouldn't want someone coming in here and giving me a bad name.I would be very selective on who comes here.

Good thing is I make my own hours. I am here alot but it is a good time and the clients are all pretty nice.

CA I hope the fires stay away. That is so sad about the loss of those firefighters.

Stan what a beautiful Grand Daughter.

They are starting Bailing at noon today. I will go help if the Salon stays slow if not I am sure they'll have plenty of teenagers to help.

Last night the BO came to me and asked me if I would be willing to take over the other half of the Barn also. The Ole guy. "who's not as old as I thought is very ill and may have bone cancer. " will not be coming back to the barn. It is all dry lots and only a extra 6 horses Bre and I talked and figure it will add about a hour of work to the day but I will get paid more. I think it will work.
I just hope the Ole guy is Ok . He will be missed.

Good morning all! I am officially on summer holidays! Woo hoo!! The school year, barn building, job interviews, graduation, barn party, visiting family and Canada day are all behind me now. Now it is time for some fun and some serious R and R. This morning I woke up to have a quiet coffee on the deck with a fantastic view.


It has been killer hot (for us) these past few days so my main objective today is to keep cool. I put the horses out to graze in the shade down by the trees for a bit this morning before it gets too hot. They will spend the afternoon in the shade of their shelters.

My two nieces are still here from Arizona, so I will take all the kids to the West Edmonton Mall Waterpark while DH and I go for a nice 20th anniversary dinner this afternoon / evening. After that I hope it will be cool enough to play a few games of badminton in the yard before the mosquitoes come out.

No riding today, as we had a lesson yesterday that proved to be quite the workout for all. Koolio was awesome as we worked on flexion, collection and impulsion, but I feel he deserves a day off and I think today is supposed to be even hotter than yesterday. I think the weather forcast says it will cool again tomorrow.

Cacowgirl - I am so sorry to hear about the fires and the deaths of the firefighters in Arizona. My thoughts and prayers are with all the affected families. I graduated high school in that area, so it saddens me to even think of the devastation caused by the fires and the lives lost.

Happy belated birthday to Rick, and congratulations Stan on your new granddaughter. She is beautiful! I wish everyone a fantastic day!

Good afternoon all! Got up super early to ride. It was and still is overcast and cool. Our weather for the next week is so unpredictable...

Got a nice rode in, jay jay was a bit 'bad' today....he has always spun when I try to mount. (Apparently whoever had him allowed him tomdothis.) He was getting better and was down to about 5 turns til he stopped and let me on. Today was something else!! He spun and spun and now started to,walk off! Ugh!! After I got home I dismounted and mounted twice....he stood perfectly still! . It is that initial mount that gets him....once I'm on, he's fine and ready for action.

Starting to see changes in his feet already! The product NO Thrush claimed you would see the frog and heel begin to shed itself when it started to heal. As it heals from the inside out! I started the treatments less than a week ago! He has a pretty bad case of it from what I can summize from all the research, so our healing will take a while, but it's exciting to see progress.

Also, the No Thrust is also said to work on rain rot. Rainn won't leave her shoulder alone, in fact he scratches it raw. I put the NT on it yesterday....already drying up!! AND, she stopped biting it!! This is some GOOD stuff!

Does anyone has suggestions to stop JayJay from spinning? I will note that it seems that if I take the reins up in my hands he spins worse. I try to keep the reins resting on his withers as I mount....weird. Someone suggested to let him spin until he stopped instead of fighting him, as the pulling of the reins makes him back up...so I do, and it was working except this morning. BUT, it was cool, and he may still be testing me.

Have a good day!

Stan, you are being bad again............
