You are welcome. Your barn really does have great wood work. I am sure it will last a really long time the way you keep up the care for it.

Been looking @ posts since 7/9;lots of 'em.Watched Nicker's video post on saddles,hoping to tuck useful info in my head (on that note:drug out the one book I didn't give to a 12 y/o horsewoman in May when I sold my saddle to her [Dad]; Sally Swift's "Centered Riding".Have barely looked @ it in the past,but w/Janice's teaching,I think I'll take a look-see..might complement things she taught me just this past Monday..)

Roaddy's barn is incredible. I'll come clean if you'll teach me teach me more & more..

This Monday morning is just pen-duty morning (2 cleanings=1 lesson),but will be glad to just be there,& greet the horses who are getting to know me. Want to take my camera & get a picture of Tommy,my new lesson horse,so can share w/you'all.

Welcome Faye!

They are known as selective grazers. If they come across a patch of succulent, fresh grass which appeals to their tastes, they’ll munch it down with gusto. What’s on the menu tomorrow? That’s the owner’s problem.

Good eveninnnnnggggg! ( say that to yourself in a creepy haunted house voice).

Returned from the barn, tonight JayJay got his feet done. I am attaching a photo. He took quite a bit off. Like a 1/2 inch! He says he can see changes, keep doing what I am doin...still thinks there may be navicular.....but I'm not fretting. Jays riding sound, I'm happy, he's happy. We will go with it.

Actually, on the walk home he TROTTED up the lane. He's never trotted in hand without being prodded!! I think he likes his shorter toes.

You don't think he will get all spunky and flip out do you?

Speaking of spunky, Rainer has been on MSM for about a week. Decided to give her a ride. Boy was she SPUNKY!! . She jigged and jogged, she was having fun.....until she went gimpy.... She was feeling too good and forgot....I let her go to have fun....and I feel bad. now she hurts. She's fun to ride tho. Funny hpw both horses ride completely different.

TJ I had Centered Riding on VHS!!! Hahaha. Probaley still do boxed away, good stuff! Keep learning' girl....that's what we all have to do....learn something new each day! ( is that the teacher in me???? )

farmchic the photos did not work for me until Rick posted. Great barn. So which stall is mine, and whats the rent. Is there hot water for a shower and when can I move in. To **** nice for a horse. The exception being Stella and Bugs.

Its Friday and I'm off work I did extra hours on wednesday and thursday which we don't get paid for so its time off. Its raining still and **** cold down to 7 deg in the evenings. Not sure if the cattle drive is still on tomorrow just have to wait and see however on the bright side the evenings are just beginning to draw out a little more daylight means more grass and then its spring.

I'm looking forward to this years treks, having Bugs means I get to ride and don't have to worry about Stella's skin if it plays up this year. That is of course if I still have her. Roslyn has not looked for another horse so I'll hang onto Stella for another month or so just in case. Well time to light the fire and make Roslyn a rum or three.

Thank you Rick, and wow Farmchic, just wow. Your place is just beautiful.

I find jealousy to be the ugliest emotion, but I am fighting it! Laugh.



Sadly kid 1 has decided that he would rather do football than the fall baseball league.
I pray I have the strength to stay off the field if he takes a hit. He's so skinny.

He was starting pitcher at last nights game. Which sadly we lost, but had a big win tonight 9-3.
