    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
    I hope everything works out for you Scotty and Hunter
    Please keep us informed

    Let us know what you think of Scotty

    CS-that really stinks that the pay is not what you agreed on. I don't see why you have to do her horses for free? Hope you can get an amiable agreement after you talk to her. Do get it all spelled out so you know what's coming in the future. Hope it isn't too stressful of a meeting.

    Hope that Hunter likes his new "job" maybe they will want to buy him. Looking forward to seeing & hearing about Scotty. Morgans are really nice horses.

    We are a little cooler here today in AZ. Thunderstorms predicted for the near future. That sometimes leads to a loss of power, or more fires from lightening strikes. Seems the weather has been pretty wonky for a lot of us, all over the globe.

    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 Rick : ) did you send it my way?

    How's everyone else?

    I would never send as much rain as we got last week to anyone on purpose, darlin.

    I have been so tied up with projects in the pasture, bush hogging, truck repairs, horse and home repairs that there has been no time to ride during daylight hours.

    I did talk to my neighbor about Little Man and the fact that my daughter will not be taking the horses to her new place. Instead she is writing up a bill of sale or something to that effect showing where she is giving me ownership of him. We also talked about the others that I'll be looking for homes and the fact that 2 have never been broke. Her daughter who is into 4H (they were getting ready to leave for a week in Tampa,Fl for a 4H show) spoke up about wanting to break them if they are still here around September when her 4H stuff is done. I agreed to introduce her to the horses when they get back.

    They also mentioned taking Jems(12 yr old standardbred broodmare) on a 3 day trail they do every fall that goes from close to house all the way up to Bonifay. Average 12-14 miles a day. Said they have taken several of their horses on it after breaking them and it does wonders for them as green broke horses. I have expressed my interest in joining them on the ride with Trusty and/or Little Man and they have no problem with it. Said they used to have about 100 participants with around 10 wagons join in. It got too big and was causing problems when the front riders would stop for a while and backed up the back of the pack. Now they just have about 30-40 friends go and is a lot nicer for everyone. They have campsites set up for each night so that is nice.

    Melinda, I hope you get the saddle smell out and can really enjoy it without a nasty taste/smell in your mouth because of the transaction.

    CS, just keep playing with his butt and it will get better. Don't put up with the BO not fulfilling the agreement and get it in writing from now on.

    Sandi, good luck with the horse swap and hope it turns out better than some the episodes of wifeswap. Lol

    I'm going to leave here at 2:30 and meet with her about it. I have wrote out what I think is fair and what we agreed apon I am not asking for much I just want it to be fair.. I appreciate being able to have my horses there but I also want them to Appreciate my daughter and I's help in running their Barn.

    Hi all!!!

    Great stories!

    NVR, yes, I am a weirdo and like to research...a lot!! I think I drive people crazy at work with all my 'research' findings! Hahaha. Too bad! I was being somewhat serious with bears....there is a guy out near my mother who walks all over those back rides I ride on. He just recently saw a bear!! Not a usual sight here...but there is plenty of unexplored woods out there where he can hide....I was afraid I was going to walk into him! we have a ton of bear at camp. They walk right in bc people feed them. Scary stuff!!

    CS, think if you got slugged, your muscle would hurt too! I bet that is all it is.

    Had a great day today blazing old trails from years ago. Took some cutters and marker tape and started clearing away old brush. Once my mom got home, I got her involved too!!. We have nice looking trails now! More to do, but a great start. Hoping it stops raining and I can try them out tomorrow!!

    Hangin with the horses tonight brushing and messing with manes and doing over all body checks. I noticed something odd with JayJay's back foot. I got the flashlight out and inspected.....where there once was an old crusty white 'scar' is now! The No Thrush has done something to close up that old scar and the crusty stuff has fallen off! I couldn't believe my eyes! I figured it was a scar (obviously) and would remain. Let me be the first to say....this stuff WORKS!!!!! I even use it on some of rainn's bald spots. Clears them right up!!

    Roaddy, I hope you come to decision about your horses. My thoughts...I wondering if with less horses you would have more time for yourself, and time to ride! Doesn't sound like you ever get to do what horses are meant for...enjoyment. (Purely my opinion of course) I hope you get to go on that trail ride, I so wish I had people to ride with. I've asked my 'snobby friend' to ride with me....but I am faced with unanswered texts.... rude!'s a pic of my troops...they like to share this stall. They get more attention here! Hahaha

    Uggggggggg...such a stressful week at work. I really needed some horsey time so went out to the farm after work and it immediately started storming. Wnd, rain, hail, lightening. Pretty bad.
    As soon as it stopped, I stepped out of the barn to check on Isabella and slipped in some mud and ended up in a split position. It was not pretty. All I can say is "ouch". It's been 25 years since I could do a split. I don't remember it being so painful.
    It's all good though. Just going to be sore tomorrow.
    And Isabella was just standing in her field, grazing, onviously unfazed by the storm.

    Lori, what did the BO say?

    Melinda, how is the saddle smelling today?

    Nicker..yay for good foot news!

    Well, it's 9:00pm and I am ready to crawl into bed and read my kindle for a while. The stress at work is really making me tired. It is weeks like this that make me regret I left the classroom and went into administration. I miss the laid back days of summer. :(
