    Congratulations on the new upcoming addition Rick.
    And you made me laugh with explaining what kid 3 was thinking when he got hit. I think you are probably right.

    Nice bike Tracey, if I were to get another, that would be on the list of bikes I would consider. I love twins.
    How's your hand?

    Hi all!

    Celeste, I would dearly love ot stop the BOUNCING, im sure BF would enjoy watching but I try to do this alone for alittle while. Ya know, I don't want to embarass the horses. Even a little jiggle would be ok,,,,,I think I left jiggle behind for bounce when I went from diapers to undies.

    Stan, Im already doing the potatoe sacks, 2, attached to the front,,im guessing 20lbs each,,,,. Id even give the wonder bra a good run for its money.

    Eole, I think I was going down when they came UP,,,,what a mess it was. Its amazing how carrots make em feel better lol.

    I love riding I really do, and I really want to learn this style,,,,but its some amount of work for someone whose always been western a western trail rider.

    I was soooooooo excited to get home today because I was going to take Atlas out (gelding) and practice some more,,,YAY me,,,,not so sure how he would have felt, lol. BUT lo and behold, MIL, FIL, BIL and wife are here in our large parking area cutting and splitting their fire wood for the season. BILs wife is with MIL in the camper they have here for the summer overlooking the lake and the exact spot id be riding. Im guessing it would take em all of 10 seconds to bail into their golf cart and come down and watch me ride, pop, flop, post,,,,on my poor horse which would make things all the more bad for,,,,,,errrr, the horse,,,Atlas,,,,lol. So, ill wait till everyone goes home and then take him down later this evening after I feed the calves. I only need a half hour so I can squeeze it in around evening chores.


    I will have to try the 2 bra thing. Ones bad enough,,,but if its the difference between bounce , jiggle and dignity,,LMAO dignity ya,,,,that funny ,,,,,,,then ill try it.


    k, im off the Guineas are squaking up a storm which means somethings out there that shouldnt be. Later all.

    Just ran thru posts; a million,my fault for not checking in for a week! Am I right, Rick? New incoming baby?? Congratulations!!

    Answers to things: Alex, I can't extend a card to the lady that fell. I could get in deep s... for even discussing the residents. But I will say: learned she's alive,a blood clot in brain likely led to the fall (& explains the copious blood). Thank you for caring..

    Nicker: LOL! I love the goats, & goat/kitty pic made me laugh. What a zoo you have. Much good thoughts on going into the school year. (&..old people standing in your way...that's what they do. They have no clue. Going around them is the only recourse.)

    Thank you Sherry for the Depression Bread recipe search! I wrote down you rpost so can find it again.

    Cynthia: I've done the Famous Accident thing here before, of course, but here it is, since you asked, & will try to be brief: I was having trouble w/fear on a canter,couldn't do it. A friend at the time said she would teach me @ her place. Got on her 16 1/2 hand cow pony, which had no business being on. We were fine, walk/trot,guiding around poles. A road worker ran into my friend's yard waving pamphlets re paving her road. Horse freaked. I knew enough to try & circle him & get control of his feet (knew head was gone). He thrusted towards the fence. Knew jumping the fence was going to kill me. Had lost my balance. Got out of the stirrups & bailed on a spin (cow pony, spun really fast!). He went to jump the fence; I tried to roll out of his way, but back hoof got me. He got (I learned later) a a bad abrasion from the girth strap when he jumped. I got my pelvis broken on both sides, a few broken ribs, & a broken ankle.

    Cynthia: the above was 9 yrs ago. I went into hiatus & depression. That's over.

    My Monday @ SkyView today: 98% of pens were doubled, couldn't be mucked yesterday (the lady who comes on Sunday has shoulder issues). So, I was there @ 730 a, & plugged along till almost 10. Got 'em all done 'tho! Very hot today, kept filling up my hat w/water & dumping it on myself. Whew.. Janice was late out to feed, so had an interesting time w/all the horses thinking I had hay, but no one got out. Had to holler @ a few, & do the arm-waving thing. Only Fire was tricky, but he likes to try & trick me anyway.

    Then I helped Janice distribute the grain pans. Starting to know a bit what goes to who. She said I could have a lesson if I wanted to. Actually, I was iffy, being drenched in sweat & pooped (so to speak), but wanted to get on. So, asked for a get-on w/no new information, just to get on. Told Janice I wanted to just feel the movement, keep my eyes up, handle the reins & my hands. So, that's what happened.

    Had a "play" while. Tommy bareback, worked on the above. Got him into a fast walk. Janice sat outside the roundpen, to give me space to work on my own (it gets frustrating sometimes, as Tommy wants to turn & go to Human Lead Mare, so I have to counteract that action while trying to do what I need to be doing). Did good. Wasn't on long, but long enough. Janice said I'm sitting much better, &...

    Next Monday I may get to be on a saddle on Tommy!! Yay! Janice said she has to find one that fits him, since can't use the owner's equipment. This means she thinks I've learned to seat enough to not use the saddle for balance. This is so cool..

    After I put Tommy back in his pen, w/the cookies (yes, I did it) in my hat then into his grain pan (all this is grooming before/after, 'figged that goes w/out saying) I helped Janice let all the horse out to pasture. It's so cool to see them all OUT. Had to laugh @ Janice's Callie 'tho; she went into Bailey's pen (since pens down), & the gate swung closed. Had to re-free her.she was standing, looking @ the gate like "Dang, I KNOW I just came in here!"

    Getting to know all these guys....alot of them are just plain funny..!

    Am lucky..btw women...a sports bra is enough, since "mid-sized", It's all I ever where, for anything. Can't stand "traditional" bras, they're a joke. I feel for the bigger girls, that's gotta be a real daily hassle.

    Country Woman! Happy Birthday, I love the Breyer gift from your husband. I have 3 Breyers; the Gypsy Vanner is my "Stable Horse" w/my long-term project, built to scale for him. A couple of people have asked me "what you going to do w/that when it's finished?" No good answer. I think it's a tinker-forever-project. For me, it's the doing on it, not the outcome.
