Yes I did and it was through a FB tack swap site. I have not heard back since this afternoon but as it stood she said, I don't know how that happened, and wanted to file a claim, lol. I tried to explain that it was the fact that it had molded (which I am sure she knew) and she wiped it down and sold it. She is trying to act clueless and wanted pictures, . I guess we are keeping it as I have put too much work into it today and it is better but not great!

NM, you sound a lot like me. I love research!!! Google and youtube are my bestest friends!!! Cool on the new trail finding adventure. You crack me up, lions and tigers and bears, oh my!

Lori, we shall see if the lady I bought the saddle from blows me off or not. I plan on keeping it and hopefully with use it will get better. It already is better after a cleaning and a bit of neatsfoot. I guess I just wanted to let her know that she really should have disclosed the smell and a sorry. Didn't expect her to act like she didn't know what I was talking about, lol.

Is anyone out there getting much riding in besides me, Lori and NM??? LOL. I want stories and pics please!!!

TJ, so glad you are doing well with your lessons. Oh speaking of lessons. I have decided to get my 9 year old into lessons. I want to make sure of her commitment and such before going too overboard. Will be good for her too! Hopefully calm horses and little saddles, lol. I need to find a place and check it out. Should be fun!

Hope everyone is having a good week. Keep the pics and stories coming. I am loving it!

I finally got to ride yesterday! It was pretty hot so it was just a short ride. My little gelding did great, reminded me how much I love him. He's a crabby thing but is always ready to go to work.

Our old trainer came by, he's going to be able to help us a little bit putting more training on some of our horses. I'm so happy about that. So hopefully we'll be riding more and maybe start showing again next year. He's also taking a horse that was giving his previous owners problems. I don't want to say too much here. He's a sweetheart of a horse and deserves a good home with a gentle trainer. So he'll get that, the trainer will get a little project with a horse he really likes and I will have one less horse. It's a good deal for all involved. Sometimes you have to just cut your loses and do what's best for the horse. This horse quickly stole my heart and I hate to see him go but I know he'll be with the best trainer and will be treated kindly whether he's problem can be fixed or not.

There's a storm brewing here. Thanks Stan : ) did you send it my way?

How's everyone else?

Nicker you sound like me. I won't stray too far from our trailer if hubby goes to town. If I get out of sight of it I start to get worried.

So I talked to my neighbor last night and she is going to let me take Scotty on a 2 week trial so we are going to go up on the 20th and pick him up. Soo excited. Now I am going to talk to this barn that was interested in leasing Hunter. Maybe they will take him for a few weeks and try him, if they like him they can keep him until sold. If they don't like him and I haven't sold him I will have to return Scotty BUT at least Hunter will have a few weeks of free training lol

HI everyone. I put Linoment "sp" on Doc it doesn't look any different but does not seem to bug him.

It is so hot and HUMID here right now.. by the time I left the barn yesterday my clothes were soaked..

I am in a tiff with the BO right now over her paying me right. It is Pissing me off

She told me I pay her for hay for my 2 that is it. 125.
then I get 150 per horse I care for at the barn
Ok well there are 6 horses I care for at the moment.
So I should get 900 a month right Ok so 2 of the horses are hers so she thinks I should care for them for free. Even if that was fair I should be getting. 600.00

Now she said to me today yes it is $900 Minus the $550 for Your horses the ir BS she told me 10 times I pay 125 each for my 2.
Am I wrong for being upset?
I have turned that barn around and have made it Shine it is so clean. Her and I need to sit down and talk cause this horse poop is not going to fly.

CW, I am sorry to hear that. Hopefully you will be able to soon.

Sandi, that is great about Scotty. We need lots of pictures.

Sherry, glad that you got a good ride in! Sorry about your storm.

Lori, go her her girl!! Omg, I cannot believe she is going to do that to you. And what is the 550 for??? BSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

Well hopefully we will get a ride in today. We need to run to Salem (bigger town to ours) and then hoping to go. Have a great day everyone! Will check in later!
