    Poor baby ^^^^^^ at least he has a GF to keep him company. Tall and sexy!

    Oh and I have never heard of a horse stomping shoes off. I guess I better be careful. I would hate for that to happen. Was it out on regular pasture??? Sorry if I missed that part.

    Nickers as JJ gets fitter he will be more alert and ready to go.I expect the same from Bugs over the coming month as I begin to raise his fitness, and my own. My biggest fear is, he will take off and I know I'm going to have a problem with one of my hips if he does that. I am teaching him to give his head in the one rein stop, just for that ocassion.

    However You can relax with JJ and he will relax with you. I have one of the ladies I ride with who keeps on saying Relax and the horse will. She is right, and I respect her experience. This person is one of the ones that organise the treks. Her motto. Hang on and she has taught me that now and again one has to give the horse its head and trust it.

    I'm sure jj is testing his boundries, as is Bugs. Wiping his nose on my shirt is not a sign of love, its the horse testing the waters to see how far he can go, and it is aimed at dominating the situation. But it is nice when they rest their head on ones shoulder or in your arms.

    Rick. Don't want to be in your position holding together a friendship and working out what if any this guy should get for his part.

    Alex, and I hate, I mean I really hate having to say this, but, she may have put forward a solution on how to work out what his input was worth. Well that stuck in my throat that did.

    Well its the end of what has been a long day and my brain is not working to clear, and its also Friday. I do the cooking over the weekend. Soup. Roslyn is out practicing for the jazz festival held in Paihia second week of August. I'm getting a couple of days off work. One day at the festival and then back home and out riding.

    Have a great weekend folks

    No clue what you are talking about Stan. You usually talk a whole bunch of... but this time I have no idea what you mean. Really, am trying to think what I posted that you might be talking about, and I am at a loss. Probably much like SWMBO feels, often. LOL.

    However, if you are giving me crap, here's a preemptive shuddup.


    NVR, tall and sexy is right, she was a former high level dressage horse who was in a barn fire. She now doesn't look so hot, but she knows it's still in her. She's missing hair and the tips of her ears, but she is a total diva.

    Here's a news article about her.

    She has a blog, but I don't think I am allowed to link to it. Look up Suki horse burn victim if you are interested.

    Lucas doesn't care about her story, he'd be flirting no matter any mare.

    Wow! Thank you for that, Alex. I really enjoyed the touching story of Suki. I am also going to check out her FB site. Amazing!

    Suki is cool, and it's down to her owner that she has done so very well. She had pads made to put in blankets to cover her worst spots. It was recent that she doesn't really need them all now.

    Owner is very obsessive, and that's been why she has done so well. If she can't be there, someone else comes out every single day to moisturize Suki's skin.

    Obviously I am not a vet, and her worst burns were to her back, but I think it's possible with padding that she might be ridden again.

    The owner has put her heart into this horse, big time. Suki has both a FB and a blog. On FB search for 'Suki the horse: burn survivor'.

    Alex, Stan was referring to the solution you offered me on how to possibly handle this mechanic situation. It lodged in his throat having to admit you had a decent idea. Lol


    They came over last night and I explained my thinking face to face. He did not like it and was still pretty put off about it and refused to take the $40 so I snuck it into Shannon's hands as he turned and walked to their truck. She whispered "I'll talk to you later" with a smile so I feel much better about it.

    I would have gladly paid up to $400 for the work to be done in a timely manner. I feel like $80 cash and the $28 valued thread file was ample restitution for the amount of labor he put in on labor. I'm sure he rant and raved all the way home about it, but that is something he will have to work out in his own mind.

    The part about him being a lazy sort is pretty accurate as she has been getting nastier and nastier with her comments to him about not having a job when he makes comments about their financial situation.

    On to your fella, he is a good looking horse and looks like he is ready for you to put him back next to his girlfriend. Lol

    Amazing story about Suki, thanks for sharing that. It's great to hear about someone putting that much love and care into an animal.

    While feeding the horses last evening, we ran across this little trek.

    Thought I would share my crappy pics of them and hope you can make out the Wasp dragging the spider. The spider was the size of a half dollar.

    Again I am finding myself speechless and unable to catch up with comments. I do read all of your posts but come time to comment I am just speechless. My dad never would have believed it, lol.

    Rick, I really don't know about that guy and your truck. Sounds like someone I would not want to be around. Maybe your friend will see that and he will not be around much longer, lol. I think you were more than fair.

    Stan and CW love the moons!

    Lori, where are you??? I have gotten kitty update pm's but not much of you on here.

    Hi Alex , glad your baby is holding her own!! I miss you when I don't hear from you. Same with you NM!!!

    TJ, how are lessons going???

    Sandi, so glad you are loving life with Scotty!! I just had a brain fart and hope I got his name right.

    Missing everyone!!! I must be better with my comments. This catching up and forgetting so much sucks!
