I have an Aprilia Tuono.

The day was awesome. The motorcycle gods were smiling on me. I was blessed with no traffic and no performance awards. Met the family for a picnic and the girls had fun playing in the river. Saw a coupled of snakes. Topped it off by going for dinner and having a few margaritas.

Taking Ev to free school Marcus tomorrow.

I love the camel was my "Monday",& it sucked pretty awesomely too ('tho didn't make me cry,Ladonna.., it wasn't as bad as your Monday..I don't cry when I'm mad,I cry when I've just...HAD IT..!) Sure hope yours got better. My Hump Day is Thursday...but today I came home & wrote on my calender "4 more days till vacation"..pant pant...This day made me feel like my SkyView days are a good dream I get to have once a week; like, are they real? Did I really do that? Lol, I guess.

I read each & every post,& wonder how you'all are doin' (& how you do it!)

PS LadyTrails: I will treasure that Tommy hug..I wasn't sure what it was. I do know,when I came 'round to his pen, he came up & looked at me,but I figured he was waiting for Janice & the little hay-wagon..which was likely also true,but maybe he was lookin' @ me,just for me,too. When I think of that hug, I can smell him in my nose. Guess I'm a bit in love too,then,huh?!

Hope everyone has good things happen the whole rest of this very odd week. As for me: I've decided a day away from the horses is a bunch of silliness, & I'm just going to relax (in the middle of today,I thought of that video(What We Learn From Our Horses) & "when you're angry...", & thought of Tommy, & I cooled off.

You guys are good for me.

Onward & Upward, I'm Not Done Yet...

Quick question for all you horse friends - have you ever had a horse on steroids? Ours is on day 4, tapering the doses. Hubby said he seems lethargic, just somewhat subdued and his respirations are a little fast at 52-56/minute. I'm hoping this is just because he feels poorly from the fly bites and the steroids, which are powerful meds. We're watching for possible colic but he doesn't seem to be colicking - Temp 100, gut sounds that can be heard without a stethoscope, drinking at least moderately well (over 5 gallons since this afternoon), is interested in pelleted feed but not so much interested in hay. Passed manure, so not colicking, at least yet. If he'd had any other symptoms besides the elevated respirations and depressed attitude I would have called the vet already...

Thats very interesting. I arrived at work this afternoon and with a smile on my face and spring in my step I yelled out. Great its hump day.
I'm the only male in the office.
The doctor said I will recover.

Funny how at the top of the world it means the week is half over, and at the bottom of the world, something else.
Or have I been set up.

I reckon I should have added the perverted additive to that revelation to save you much recovery time. How many women did you..err. I mean are in your office? What will SWMBO think about the events that caused the need for recovery?

I got home yesterday to DW informing me that Little Man is back to his Houdini antics again. He found a low spot in the fence by the pond and came over into the yard for the nice tall grass I have been working on cutting. He must have done it when none of the other horses were about as they all just stood at the fence looking over at him.

I pulled the top of the fence back up where he folded the top six inches over then ran a line of wire across the top of the fence posts. Will see if he finds/creates a new spot when I get home. By the time I finished running the wire I was so drenched in sweat from the heat that I said screw cutting any grass and headed for a cold shower. I figured between working in the heat at work and finishing the day soaked in sweat from homework then I was done for the day.

Hope everyone has a great hump day.

Morning all!

Wierd Hump Day here....

It started well....back still painful, so no riding, but I don't like to let them sit, so I took both of them for a walk through my new trail. Wanted to see how each of them would react to crossing a creek! depending on what direction you cross, it's either low ground to high ground, or obviously vice versa.......

Rainn was first. From low to high, she walked into the creek and did a little hop up. Coming the other direction, I am glad I stood out of the way bc.....she jumped that creek like a little deer! I literally was like, " holy sh*t Rainn". Hahaha. The girl can fly!

jay on the other hand was a nice long legged gentleman and simply stepped in and out of the creek. Phew! Although rainn's hop would be fun.....not sure if this body could take it!

I like to show them some things on the trail in hand to get an idea of how they may react.

Within that time, I received two calls from my dads DW. He was hallucinating. She was beside herself, so I went over. I too concurred on the he thought he was on a boat! we called the ambulance. They found him to be very dehydrated.....and sent him home.....still not right. Quiet so far, so maybe the IVs took affect.

Somehow, being the youngest, and the 'least favorite' in the family....I'm the one they call on....go figure....oh well, I wouldn't feel right not being involved.

Great shots Maryland!!

very happy for you TJ!!

Have a great day all!

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