these horses are only 2 years old and took along time to have them come to you

If I lived closer to them I would be over more often
And I would consider a horse then

I would not have to pay them much either

It would be great if you could work with those youngsters CW while you are looking for your leasing/owning situation. You're savvy enough, and they look like sweeties. Seems like it would be a good thing for all 3 of you.

Dancer, the old lesson mare, is shedding out her humongous winter coat. For the last 3 weekends I've gotten piles of hair off and she still looks like a shaggy bear. Apparently she gets more attention from me than anyone else; I get extra horse hugs.

Thank You all for the warm Welcome!! Driving is a great option. I have always enjoyed driving. My problem is that with my damaged left knee that leg is 1 1/2 inches shorter than my right leg so standing and walking is difficult for me. I can walk short distances before I have to sit down and rest my legs. Plus, my back surgeon has me on weight lifting restrictions. His words were, "No lifting anything heavier than a full gallon of milk".

In my first post I forgot to add that before my accident I volunteered at a local Handicapped Riding Therapy Center. My main job was as a horse handler, but I was also a side-walker when needed.

I am so glad to have found this thread!!!!

Susan, love the picture of your dog - talk about 'Smile for the camera!'

Canda - welcome from across the pond. Life is a bummer when it catches up with you! I hit 63 this year.

I was awake very early this morning so went out to see what was going on with the wild life.
A vixen that has been around for about three years is heavy in pup, she will probably give birth in the same hole as the last two years. Unfortunately I will not be able to get to close to her as a big old oak came down right across the hole obscuring it from view.

Far to many badgers about. They are protected and the numbers are way to high. Big stink because certain areas are being given a license to cull them back because they are infected with TB and pass it to cattle.
No one wants to eradicate them but their numbers need to be kept to a sensible number - not that the Bunny Huggers will agree.

This weather is unbelievable hot again today and forecast for hotter tomorrow,
Busy planting bulbs today.
I also dug over a lot of the veggie garden with the assistance of the chickens and ducks. Had to laugh at one hen she would stand on the soil I was lifting and dive into the hole before I had a chance to turn the dirt. If any of the ducks got to close then she chased them off! By the time I had finished one patch their croups were bloated. Happy birds.

Not a lot of news, horses are still out 24/7 and when we start working them they will be in for a shock!

CW - that would be awesome if you could work with those horses!

Maisie - I feel your pain with the shedding, I have found yet another reason that I don't want to own a grey horse. I have so much grey hairs on everything I own, and the horse lives 10 miles away! In the middle of the day running errands I have had to spit out a horse hair! Yuck!

Foxhunter - I love the term bunny huggers! Never heard that before, I'm assuming it's similar to our term "tree huggers" here. We had elk in our area that were destroying a PGA golf course. Some master hunters were selected to come thin the herd. A few people got vocal about it...and those Elk are still destroying the course. The herd here has gotten ridiculously large and they can't really do anything to stop it.

So, my big news for the day. I am officially a student of Large Animal Massage! By this time next year, I hope to start building my practice :) I am so very excited!
