Sounds amazing Koolio.

I think my little mare will end up being an amazing horse for someone. I hate thinking about rehoming her and the wife cries just talking about it. I can't get her and daughter out there to ride any of them lately and I can't keep up riding 6 with my hours.

I would love to connect you with several of them. All of the geldings are as gentle as any string horse you've known when being led. Boo is still green broke and would require an intermediate rider to enjoy him. Little Man is buddy sour so he is hard to ride out alone, but does great in the pasture where he can still see the other horses or when going out with another horse. Doc is just awesome for anyone who wants to climb on for a solo ride, group or led. Trusty(when healed) has rode my 12 year old daughter around the yard as if she is a fragile piece of glass. She is barely a beginner if that tells you anything.

If you ever consider taking a vacation down here to retirement central then look me up and I'd be glad to accommodate you and whoever comes with you.

Nicker-I thought about a sheepskin thingy (& my horsey co-worker suggested one),but will need to ask my instructor when I've finally been awarded a saddle instead of the bareback pad...she wants to get my balance/body together so that I don't rely on a saddle for balance & security,& to feel the horse. Problem is,I felt it a bit too much,& kept pulling up to resist pain in sensitive area. Hence the bike shorts idea. I also probably need to just get into it & forget about my own precious self for a change! I'm glad your back didn't hurt on your ride & no numbness in your foot. LOL, your response to my post was yesterday,so you'll have to reach back in memory,since this group goes fast & far! Yes,I want a sheepskin thingy...I have a piece of fake sheepskin,which may not be adequate,but when I know what the thingy looks like,maybe I can make one.

If your wife cries, then you can't sell her. You will be sleeping on the couch.

I read each & every post. Have resorted to a list beside my computer to write down where I left off! So w/you'all alot in spite of sporadic posts & not being able to respond to all I'd like to. I loved the pics & story of Rick's lovely time. The kittens,the new filly,all your stories.

I have 2 more days of this (ever weird) work week,then Sunday for home chores, then Monday early out to SkyView. I didn't have time to tell of my learning experience last Monday: Janice happened to be close by doing feeding. I was going into Star's pen (big,smart gelding). I've gone into gate pulling the wheelbarrow,so am body-first to control the denizen. Star was close by, & shoo-ed him back w/my hands. Got the 'barrow in,but while going to close the gate he got right by me & out. Almost put me into the fence,but I jumped back quick. Janice came over,said no worries she'll catch him,but had decided to let me learn from the experience of what was going to happen,instead of jumping in & correcting me,which was wise (& we both were glad I hadn't gotten fence-pinned). She said I'd been too slow getting the 'barrow in & getting to the gate,& that Star had had no respect for me. He knew he could do it,& did. She explained alot of stuff in a few minutes,which hopefully soaked into my head,& said I could use the (plastic) rake to push someone back,that it will make me "bigger". Whew.

Hence this Monday's lesson in ground work body language,& not letting them run over me (& all that implies, & of course literally!) I have to learn to be the boss. "I have the manure rake, I have power!" I didn't tell Janice that most humans in my life have considered me prey, so maybe I have more in common w/the horses lol...have alot to learn. Thanks for listening.
