    I liked the UFO, but I like the horses better.

    Celeste, I was told sooty palamino. She is very unique. I love the new patterns that seem to emerge overnight. She is chocolate brown on her legs and belly and golden above with a very traditional palomino blonde tail. I love her grey mane and do wish her tail matched.

    Had so many kids playing basketball today at the house, as I currently have 5 and at least 4 or 5 neighbor kids came over. Am happy to report that my neighbor kept his mouth shut, and nothing was said to the kids.

    The 2 respite kids go home tomorrow, they are good kids, but just in volume level, having 5 is loud. Am ready for it to quieten down again.

    My three are all doing great. All really well behaved, and just great young men to be around. Kids 1 & 3 are doing football, camp starts next week. I am so praying that they both are on the same team. It will be a nightmare for me if one is Varsity and the other JV.
    I think it might also get tricky if one is first team, and the other second. I am hoping this all ends well.

    [QUOTE=AlexS;3248914] I was using the bathroom today upstairs, and there is loud angry knocking on the door. I assumed it was my idiot neighbors, so I came flying down the stairs.

    Alex. I have concerns for you.

    Roslyn went and applied medication to Bugs today. Bugs is a mess and even SWMBO agreed so he must be bad. She will visit daily and apply soothing ointment to his face untill friday then I'm taking him to the vet. He needs to have something to take the itch out and have time to heal. No riding for a while but he will be at home for four days so I will have time for some ground work.

    And TJ how do I know my horse is showing me affection. And I don't give treats. I stoped doing that after Savannah tried to bite me for not having a treat for her. Treats are thrown into the feed bucket or placed on the ground.

    Affection, they stand by me head down and back leg raised in a relaxed stance. They allow me to ride without objection. They don't bite me, kick me, or buck. But most of all they follow me around, that tells me he is happy to be with me and trusts me.

    The sure fired thing is when I am leaning on him, arm around his neck and he lifts his front hoof and plants it on my foot with just enough weight so I can not get my foot out. Then swings his head around, looks at me, then lifts his foot off of mine. At that moment I know he has just shown me affection.

    Nah, it was my cursing and threatening to get 12gage out and exercise him that made Bugs move his hoof. But the one thing I do know is if I pushed or tried to wiggle my foot out from under he wound have applied more weight, and he would have only been playing with me.

    Affection from a 1400 pound horse can leave a lasting memory.

    Cheers all and get out there and ride for the summer is heading my way.

    The thought for today

    'OLD' IS WHEN...
    Your friends compliment you on your new alligator shoes and you're barefoot.

    Day off, here.

    I'm off for a motorcycle ride and meeting the family for a picnic at a local park.

    Ev's trainer is away and Ev is "not allowed" to ride Marcus until the trainer returns. We've been up to exercise him and I suspect we'll be making a couple of trips this week for more free schooling.
