    I am distraught with the fact I do not see a Stan post from last night or this morning. I must say that if it turns out to be something stupid that he leaves over then I'll head to the other horse sight that our last amigo went to. The powers to be here are becoming a little to craved for power and I've heard of prison with more freedom than what is left on this sight.

    They are trying to make it all butterflies and rainbows with a robot list of responses so no one is offended by a real life reply. We are all different people with different backgrounds and experiences. If they want to remove any chance of new members being offended by a reply then they need to go automated with a predetermined list of answers. If the answer they seek isn't on that list then they need to go somewhere else to find it because if this site gives it it may offend them and we just can't have that.

    Terry, it is nice to put a work picture with your stories and your office to go with them. Thank you. I love those little hidey-holes for self time.


    Ccg, I hope you figure out a way to repair the saddle to make it work. I was late getting to the house yesterday for a couple of errands and will try to look for the computer this evening.

    I woke up this morning feeling a lot better so I'm hoping this is a prelude to a great holiday weekend as they are trying to have everyone a 3 day holiday.

    Good morning all.

    Welcome, Sibyl. I do work with the University of Pisa. Unfortunately, I don't get there often.

    My class started again, as well. The class is offered as a traditional class and online. I had 3 students in the class room and 5 online. It is odd teaching to just 3. One of the 3 said she's dropping the class.

    I'm taking vacation to spend with my wife. I really can't afford to be away from he office, but I am taking off anyway. Today, we will run errands.

    Have a great day, everybody.

    TJ- Looks like a nice place to work.

    Maybe the carrot bandit kidnapped Stan

    Last night hubby came home with a present for me, a new wheelbarrow! I really needed one because if me and the kids are all cleaning at the same time we don't have enough to go around. He also picked out a high duster with a 12' extension for me. Such good presents! So much better than roses, unless their roses that I can plant in the ground I like those! And I don't think I told you all that over the weekend he got a huge trailer load of sawdust for me, more than will fit in the shavings room! Can you tell hunting season is right around the corner? LOL They are going to check out their spot this weekend and need the trailer so my son has been trying to empty off the "extra" shavings into the stalls. Some of them are so deep I told him my horses were going to think they went to the beach or they would bury themselves This is such a fun time of year for our family, the boys get buck fever and the girls are able to get their honey do list done before the boys get "permission" to go hunt. It's all in fun, they know I don't care if they go or how much but a little spending money, presents or completed chores eases their guilt so they can relax and enjoy themselves. I see it as my way of helping them have a good time. Plus I always send them homemade goodies to snack on while they are gone. There's not much for them to finish in the barn this year......I'm going to have to really think about my list to get a full sheet. And next year I may have to start a new big project! I'm thinking some more fenced in area for turn out OR a covered round pen? I really like the looks of this one:

    Dream Big right?? That would keep them busy for a while.

    That looks good. I have never ridden in an arena of any kind so I wouldn't know how to act in an enclosed one for sure.

    Rick, if you have contact info for Stan from another forum, why don't you check on him and let us know how he is. I sent him a pm on this forum and got no response.

    Rick, groundwork and round pen training are probably my favorite things to do with my horses. Sure I love to ride too. But I have a real interest in the training side of things. That round pen attached to the barn would be a dream for me


    What's the deal with Stan anyway or are we not allowed to talk about it?

    I sent him a pm with the address to another site where a former member went when he was dismissed for fighting with one of you ladies. I never saw or heard the whole story, but have seen him on the other site alot. Haven't had any conversations with him over there either so I don't know if he even knows I'm over there too.

    I figure Stan is just laying low to let things blow over before coming back on. If he isn't back by the weekend then we can start looking at figuring out who to contact for info. I for one would be willing to pack up and move to another site just to keep our group whole. I have grown attached to all of you and upset we have lost those that are gone already. The one who was removed for fighting with one of you had issues, but we all have family that we don't always get along with. Our strength grows as we learn how to work those differences out among ourselves and the Mods took that opportunity away from my point of view. I don't know if it got so bad that someone sent a Mod after him or what. I may be way off base and apologize for my ignorance if I am. I mean no disrespect or offense to the lady he got upset with.
