    Welcome Sibyl
    Nice to meet you
    You will have lots of fun here

    I wish I had been taught to sew and have the liking for it
    I do know how but I don't care for it though

    I am not sure about the saddle backing. I would think that if it were uneven, it could cause back problems. The old probably needs to come off. You might be able to use it without the fleece if you had a really good pad.

    Hey everyone!

    First of all. Tj, you can't leave us. We would miss you. Glad you chanhed your mind. Like someone else said, I think we all feel out of place at times. I think it is just because this thread is so busy and has so many great posts that it is impossible to remember everything that everyone says!

    Sybil- welcome!

    Cacowgirl...it will definitely need reflocked but if you really like it, it would be worth getting it done!

    Stan, Rick is right...you can't leave him alone in here! He and Dave are totally outnumbered!

    Nicker and Koolio, I found a video I thought you would enjoy. I actually shared this with a group of teachers I supervise. Enjoy!


    A few pages back, people were talking about getting bucked off, stomped on, dragged, etc. I wanted to show you one of my more visible injuries. My broken ribs, and fractured back were not visible outwardly...but getting bucked off into a round pen fence will leave you with an arm that you would swear is broken and a few weeks later will leave you with an impressive bruise like this! This was back in Nov. Of 2011.

    Oh, and tj, I have only been riding since 2009 and have suffered all of those injuries. After my last accident in 2011, my confidence was shattered, and like, you was very afraid to continue but I found the right horse for me and she has slowly built my confidence up and I can now laugh about those unscheduled dismounts! Hang in there!

    Corgi.... I can't wait to share that!! I SO LOL!!!

    TJ, thank gosh your staying! Heehee

    Critter....what?

    Rode at the spir of the moment tonight....so spur, I wore shorts!! but mom and I were talking about how Jay seems 'different'. I told you about how he's a bit more dominant over Rainn lately, and I guess my mom had guests come to the barn Nd he was stretching his neck like a giraffe at them....he just doesn't DO that!! He's usually a little skittish of people.

    So...I wondered, has he changed under saddle? Nope! well, he rode more sure footed. So that is good! I rode him up the drive way and mom was like...."he walks so slow!" Hahaha. Yep! That's Jay!

    Here's a funny. I only rode a short distance. Told DH is old be home early ( oops, not so...). But I decided to take a short trail with the stream since it rained all day. At first I was like....ummmm should I? Then I thought, just buck up girl and make him GO. Well, he snift at the little bit of water In The creek, stepped in, let his back feet SLIDE in....and STOOD there I had to coax him out! What a wiener! Hahaha

    Im Going to have to get home earlier tomorrow....I'm in the dog house a bit. DH is feeling 'lonely and forgotten' now that I am back to work! Hahaha. I hate when he gets pouty...it's worth coming home a bit early a few days. MEN! Hahaha

    Have a good night all!


    Stan?????you there????

    Been readin' readin..I love you guys!! No, Lori, won't go; am not a guy but somehow an angry redhead comin' @ me is scary, & you live close enough to me to do it! Nicker..giggle away. If you were closer I'd be out @ 6 a.m. Mucking stalls & getting to know Rainn. Ladona: OUCH!! You are brave, you'all are brave, & Celeste has assured me I can no longer refer to myself as "greenhorn", so will do "novice" or "apprentice", or...just be me! Rick! Don't you dare get dumped/hurt/broken, your family needs you & you have WAY too much to do (BTW ladies: can we clone him?)

    Ladona, I think it's right to just remove the fleece & do a do-over because of "bumps". Hot glue anyway will melt & be weird under stress & heat, won't work. A really strong glue "might", but there would still be an uneven issue; as much as you smooth it, the horse would still feel the difference. (This comes from yrs of gluing stuff for projects, big & small).

    Wecome Sibyl!

    I want to try & post some pics of my work-space. Will see if it works...

    Glad everyone seems to be doing good! It's hot here, again.

    Welcome Sibyl! Feel free to chime in about anything. We'll listen.

    Lori the barn looks awesome! You must be superhuman to take care of all that alone! I do good to take care of my little barn and try to make time for the laundry and other domestic chores. Plus must make time for painting projects

    Alex where are you, you were doing so good LOL

    Keep the stories coming, I'm reading them all even if I don't post anything about them.
    I have help. My daughter is a huge help and a friend who does the mowing hps some. It does take a lot of time though. Between the salon and barn I don't ha e much more
