Life is better-for you gals that are lucky enough to be "fried eggs" Rejoice! I don't understand why anybody would ever want to be made larger-it's just a pain in the back & shoulders. Clothes fit much better when smaller also.
    ...cause you always want...what you can't have....I for one never have to,worry about the extra bounce.... NOT a good look for a bathing suit. Hahaha

    Hi all!!!

    Well....I survived the first day of Third grade!!! And I'm still awake at 9:30!

    I have 23 kids. A couple squirrelly ones...but they'll come around to my wAy of thinking soon.

    Gosh, third grade is such a huge transition. We have to learn to walk to the restroom And use it 'in mass', we had to talk about walking down the steps one at a time....we had a birthday, a bee sting, and a ball of a time. There is just so much to learn about being a 8 year old human! Hahaha

    Went to the barn after...didn't think I'd stay long I was pooped! But once I saw my two, I was filled with energy.. I played with Jay. Did several ground work things. He seems to have missed me this morning. I had to change my clothes out in their lean too. Both horses kept doing 'drive bys' seeing what in the heck I was doing. then I went out to sit on the giant spool to out my socks and boots on....Jay followed me and just stood real close.....turn her head to see what I was doing, I pet his neck, he'd close his eyes....finally he walked behind me, put his muzzle on my neck and blew out warm air....and walked away!thats the second time he's done that...I wonder what it means.

    Great pictures Roaddy!! That little grandson with the Binky is so cute!!

    TJ, I have to say, that is the first time I read your story...I've always wondered, but didn't want to ask. Wow!!THAT is quite an accident! I bet breaking you pelvis layed you up for quite some time!! Did it heal back normally? Really, no bones always know it's there. I feel your pain.

    Becka, hope your posting went well. I used to place my English saddle on the saddle rack and practice like that! You don't have the horses umph to help you get up,there, but it strenghtens your thighs. I was always taught to post using your legs, not stirrups....the goal to post wo stirrups...which is REALLY hard!!

    Well, need to get some shut eye...lots to learn tomorrow. Good luck Koolio! Hope you keep that excitement....and thanks for all the well wishes!

    Oh, here's a pic from tonight. This is my beer can bag...a toture device no really we dragged it and made him carry the Clangy things around. Loud things don't seem to faze him.

    Talk later!

    People are always talking about bailing off of a horse. I have been stomped, kicked, reared up with, bucked, bucked off, run away with, fallen off, bitten, stomped on, and slobbered on, but I have never voluntarily jumped off of a moving horse. If I do, I know I'm going to get hurt. If I stay on, maybe I'll get him calmed down and stop him. I am WAY too chicken to jump unless he is just right at the edge of a cliff; then I might take my chances with the horse. I am a major chicken about jumping off. If my horse goes psycho, I'm hanging on.

    I've only ever been bitten once and fallen off three times, however I wouldn't bail off a horse either, unless we were about to fall off a cliff as you said Celeste, or cross a major freeway. I believe that if I got on the horse, it's my job to bring them back under control and to safety.

    Well alot has happend in a few days post wise.

    Nice photos Rick and I do support his request for video. Us men do tend to analise things befor we come up with a solution.

    As for bailing from a horse I have had to Bail and no injuries.

    The potato sack exercise 20 pound

    A few photos of todays ride
    And we start off with the wooly mamouth Bugs He was a little p---k today but managable it was a good ride
    Stella Smokey with SWMBO walking away and Stella
    Final shot is Stella and her new owner Stella did not put a foot wrong. We walked out for a couple of hours over the farm so she could get a good feel for her, however she wanted a bit, it made her feel more in control Stella would have been fine bitless. After we cleaned them up and turned them out the buyer wanted a couple of photos so out into the paddock we went. Stella walked up to her, nose to nose than walked down to me and stood cheek to cheek. She has not done that in a long long time. I'm sure they know however I will have her for two more weeks then its delivery. There is a good ending Stella is going to a young lady who wqants her for ever horse and does not believe in moving them around.She also attends the same treks so there will be contact.

    Ok, but who has been fell upon???

    Yep, when I was around 16/17 my QH and I were out on a normal trail, one we've been on a lot. The next thing I know I I am on the ground and the horse is scrambling to her feet, and takes OFF!!

    That was the on e and ONLY time I didn't wear boots to ride, and with only having sneakers on, her body weight cruised my foot....I had to walk home....

    I could go a shorter distance to moms, or follow the horse ( as she left me behid) 2 miles to dads.....I followed the horse! I limped, crawled, cried, found a stick to use to walk with(still have it!),,,,,wouldn't it figure that day no one came down the road!

    I still to this day don't know what caused her to fall.
