    Thanks all! I'm sire you'll get sick of all the pics.

    In all the baby excitement I forgot to mention I had a great ride on my gelding yesterday!! We rode around the obstacles in the arena, tarp, noodle thingy, rescued animal from one barrel to another, stepped over half barrels, through cones and pushed the ball around. For a horse that is scared of everything he did surprisingly good! I was so proud of him. He has his faults but he tries so hard I can overlook them.

    Rest,take a break, relax? What are these things you speak that I know not of?

    Surprisingly the storm had passed before I got home so out came the wheel barrow, post hole diggers and knee pads.
    Knee pads for kneeling down and doctoring Trusty's leg that is looking better and sorry for no pics. I forgot the phone in the truck outside the gate.

    Wheel barrow for mucking both stalls and the area outside the stalls where the other horses congregate to watch Trusty eat his feed and hay.

    Post hole diggers to finish putting the last of the fence posts in the ground after I was thoroughly soaked in sweat from the other 2 chores in this humidity with almost no breeze.

    NM71, glad you got it straightened out with your dad's wife. Just imagine if that happened after having a talk with your mom's husband. Your life would be bliss and you would no longer need us to bring you joy. Yea I know that is a fantasy.

    Ladytrails, sounds like you have your itinerary booked up pretty good there. Hope it all goes smoothly and the kids enjoy the horses.

    Farmchic, I'm glad you were able to enjoy your ride on gelding. Sounds like he has a decent head on him.

    Stan, just think of what all would get wet if you couldn't hold it. Dangerous path to be on unless you have a wife willing to help or are very good at your free hand abilities.

    Rest and taking a break is what you finally get to do when your vacation is over and you go back to work................

    Stan, you better get busy. Rick is gaining on your lead in the bad boy contest.

    Ahh,, now that I can relate to, but I'm assuming by vacation you mean staying home and working in torrential rain without much progress to show for it.

    Morning all!!

    Got up early to ride....didn't matter the deer flies were still really terrible, even with the heavy duty fly spray. we lasted about a half hour....better than nothing I guess.

    If anyone know what repels deer flies, PLEASE let me know. I thought they wud be gone by now....but this high humidity seems to make them worse.

    Back to the was nice...between swatting flies. But, I did find JayJay also goes though water well! . Mud....check....big we know WATER!! There was a huge puddle that I just HAD to test him on! not a problem!!

    Roadyy....I KNOW if only I had the cahoonas to talk to the DH like that! Maybe now that I put my foot down with DW, ( that stands for dimmwit) I can with him.... Hahaha. He's actually been on best behavior and leaving me alone!!! YEA!!

    I'm kinda with ya Roaddy, although I say I am lazy this summer....I'm really not...I have a hard time sitting still, always something to do. I even feel quilty for sitting and reading to LEARN! Which, I need to do, to update my skills and prepare for book #2. . Ugh!

    FC, I've been looking up different obstacles on line to create to put Jay thru, (although we meet several obstacles out on the trail) but what is rescuing an animal from one barrel to Another? We need to practice backing thru obstacles. He backs up, but not real well...same with side passing.....needs work.

    HOT here......

    Have a good day!

    So hot here! Got up early to clean stalls but already had to quit. Will try again late tonight or early tomorrow.

    NM- I just use two barrels and set a large stuffed animal on one then pick it up and carry it to the next barrel. I bought my barrels from a man who sets them out on the side of the road. And the stuffed animal from goodwill, the largest thing they had was Pooh lol I'd still like to find something a bit scarier like a lion or gorilla!

    Google ACTHA obstacles you'll find lots of good ones. They have videos to. Somewhere on YouTube is Clinton Anderson's obstacle course and it is to die for!!! I showed it to DH and he laughed and said forget about it!! That was not very nice was it?? I have a small wooded area next to the barn that I want to make into a obstacle course if we ever get the time.

    Hi all hope you all are having a great day.

    We caught the last 2 kittens last night I didn't get pictures of the last 2 it was 2 late and Bre was getting the fleas off them so she could put them in with there brothers.. there are 3 boys and 1 girl. The one who looked like a siamise is a girl
    The rest are boys.
    Black one Bre named Black Magic
    The girl is Jezzy
    Tabby is Charlie
    And Arkay is the one she wants to keep.

    We had a dr appointment for Bre's back today. She has Scoliosis 37% curvature. I need to find a good Palates video to work out to. Do any of you know of one?
    I am so worried she will need surgery :(
