Yearling
The two spotted donkey babies were spoken for the first time two of our neighbors saw them shortly after they were born. As soon as they were weaned they went to their new homes. Lucky for my husband and I one of the babies, who are both 8 years old now, lives next door to us and the other is 1 1/2 mile from us. We only bred the jennies back one more time. Of that breeding we only got 1 spotted baby and the other was a solid. We had a more difficult time selling them. We traded one to our hay source for a load of hay and did eventually sell the last one.

We decided against doing anymore breeding and did eventually sell the jennies and spotted jack sire.

My QH mare did have 3 awesome foals. She was an excellent mother to them.

Welcome to the newer posters than me!! I sure do like reading the posts.

Thumbs up TB Lover

Country Woman, I hope this reply gets to you. I have sent several on specific topics like the helmet you are looking to buy, but since I am SOOOO computer ILLITERATE I don't know if anything is getting through. I think you have created a SENSATION with this thread. I love knowing there are many persons over 50-60 yrs. That are still into horses. I think your choice of helmets is very good I have the exact same one; a special built mounting block is a great idea (your husband sounds like a sweetie); getting your own farm some day has it's pluses and negatives we have our own it's alot of work esp. When you get older - just some of my experiences. DEFINITELY get a horse though whatever you do. It's the best! LOL

My Hubby is pretty supportive too. He built me an awesome brush box, can't find pict right now, and recently he built me a tack box. It's awesome, he is so talented.

I'm excited-Hubby & I went to look at some sheds yesterday & we put a deposit down for one! It will be my hay & tack shed-yayy. It is suppossed to get delivered & assembled next Monday & then I can get the hay out of my horse trailer (to keep it away from the free-range cows) & my "extra" tack can be unpacked from my "little" pick-up. It will be nice to "see" my stuff again & I will have a place to work on my tack & do the maintenance it needs. The shed will be 12' wide & 10 ' deep & I really like that it has a 42" door-I won't be banging my knuckles while carrying a saddle. So we have been working all morning selecting a site & leveling it-Lots of prep work!

I am suitably impressed by these wonderful husbands!
I have no doubt I could make a tack locker providing that the doors didn't have to meet square!
My maternal grandfather was a Master Cabinet Maker and he would turn in his grave if he ever watches me hanging doors! He was a very clever man, a miserable old so and so but there wasn't a thing he couldn't make. He made the lace for my christening dress, knitted me layettes and as I grew all sorts of wonderful wood shelves and boxes. I could get away with anything with him. I was even forgiven when ( I was about 5 years old,) and he fell asleep in his chair after lunch, I drew on his bald head with my Aunt's lipstick. Gramps went up the town and couldn't understand why people were smiling so broadly at him every time he doffed his cap.

All the tack here is kept in the tack room. So many things are very different in the way horses are kept and cared for.

Horses are groomed and tacked in their stables. Apart from bathing and bathing they have everything done whilst they are in their stable including mucking out.

I could never understand why so many left their tack near the tie area - until I lifted a western saddle! I think nothing of carrying two sets of tack when I am going to exercise riding and leading another. Couldn't do that with a western saddle.


Will write more on the morrow, off to have a shower and bed. I have three books I have started reading and not anywhere near to finishing one of them. I always read before I go to sleep but have only managed a few lines before nodding off.

Take care one and all.
