NM, I just remembered something that I am not sure I should share cause it makes me out like a woosie, but anyway, I will.
Yesterday as I was brushing my mare for an evening ride with my DH, I got all choked up and misty eyed as I put my arms around her neck and laid my head against her. I just really love that girl! Nuff Said, lol.

NVR, not wierd at ALL...besides...you're talking to a girl who just sits in her pasture listening to them chomp, and my heart fills with love!

I totally get it!

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.

I think that's awesome. I could never do that with hunter but I can with Scotty. We just trailer over to barn to test load Scotty for upcoming trip. He loaded like a champ. He isn't used to straight hauls with a ramp. I love this guy. Then of course we had to go say go to hunter who neighed hello. I think he knows something is up

CW, I really enjoyed the pics from the mounties! Beautiful, and such nice turnouts!

Roadyy, sounds like a busy weekend! Yours sounds a lot like mine last weekend....

Nicker, nice job on building up your JayJay! He's looking very, very nice.

Stan, the oysters inside the steak - I'm sure they're still raw if the steak is rare, right? No offense but that sounds nasty. I can't abide oysters for some reason, and the idea of eating them raw is over the top. But, if all is as I recall hearing about oysters, you'll be in fine shape for the return of SWMBO, right?

Edited to add - TJ, I love hearing about your rides, and I think I'd really like Janice if we met. She seems to be very fair, and appreciates you! Sounds like you are in a very good place, and you are sounding so much happier these days! Way to go, friend!
Wild, I love the ponies, too. When they're good ones, they're worth MORE than their weight in gold. When they're not loving, they're just like Hunter65's tag line - evil LOL!

Alex, good luck with this kid. Sounds like he's 'stuffing' his emotions if he's not angry yet. I can't see how you can endure what he has, and not have some anger. Has he already had a ton of counseling? It does explain why they'll be so cautious about his placement, wanting him to feel trusting and safe in your home, above and beyond the new county's staff's first time working with you. Do you suppose another reason they're so cautious is that he's expected to act out eventually and they know something you don't?

I'm having a breakfast interview tomorrow morning with a lady from a company that wants to hire me in September or October. The CEO of this company has been waiting for my 20-year anniversary in September, so that I can retire with a nice benefit package and then go to work for him. The lady is his COO and has a lot of great ideas for new healthcare projects and quality measurement programs that she wants me to help with. It will be a promotion and a much more fun job, with people that I already know and respect because I've worked with them since 1995 in my current role. It's nice to be sought after!

Today we're getting a nice soaking rain, over an inch so far, after not having any measurable rain for several weeks. So glad that the drought is breaking, and hoping it means good things for the corn, beans and hay crops that were at risk. My wonderful neighbor was going to make sure we have enough hay, because it's how he is (and because we will loan him the use of our pony for his 2- and 4-year-old grandkids, so that he doesn't have to buy one), but I found out he was worrying about it because he might not have a 2nd or 3rd cutting. This will help....

Oysters in the rare steak and I did spell it wrong using rear. Must be my age. Rick nailed it.

The steak was a scotch fillet 2 inches thick with a pocket cut big enough for 6 oysters. Yes thay are raw and come by the dozen. They say only one is needed, but I like to stay chargedoops

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.
