    I was gone for a little while on vacation (London and Paris) with the family (including my Mom).

    We came back Monday night. Last night, Ev was allowed to ride for the first time in 6+ weeks. This was the first time she was allowed to ride Marcus since we bought him. Unrelated to riding, her leg is REALLY swelled. The therapist wants her to see the Dr. I'm hoping she's allowed to keep riding.

    I need to get caught back up.

    Stan, Bugs is a neutered male. All us ladies on here would agree completely with you that they are easy to get along with. It's the intact males that are the problem. In horses as in humans. So, you see, the solution is right in front of you. More or less. Pun intended, LOL.

    Celeste, I have a wiggler, too - he is highly food motivated and I used horse nuggets to impress upon him that standing still was the desired behavior, and to this day climb up on the mounting block, futz with the saddle, scratch his rump, and whatever - he remembers that he is to stand. He's the greenest one I own but the best at standing at the block. No treats needed these days.

    Nicker, it's great to hear how Jay Jay is progressing; he really seems to be a super horse and you're lucky to have found him. Glad to hear that the feet are coming along, and I'm very optimistic that he's just thrushy and not navicular; still fingers crossed on that. Also, his attitude - definitely a quick learner and eager to please. Both of those are priceless!

    Critter, lovely hay - wow. We have been trying to get someone to bale ours (DH can mow and rake with our own equipment) but no one is available for a small acreage. Finally thinking we'll just buy from the neighbor and 'waste' our pasture with mowing and grazing. Fortunately hay is plentiful at the moment...

    Today is my birthday; DH and I both took the day off and he dragged me to the implement dealer to decide on a tractor. We are upgrading from a Kubota 28 HP 2 WD to a Case, 55 HP, 4WD, with a front loader. Then had a nice lunch in town on the way home and we stopped in my favorite vet/tack/pet store as part of the deal for DH getting to tractor shop today - he didn't whine once about how long I was taking, LOL. I took a nap and was going to take a ride but we had a downpour so that didn't happen. Maybe tomorrow! We're taking a road trip this weekend to Illinois for the "Horse Progress Days" - our first time, should be interesting.

    Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
