    What's the deal with Stan anyway or are we not allowed to talk about it?
    I have never had a round pen to do my groundwork in and imagine I would get dizzy trying to stay in a confined area. Lol

    I do love the ground work too as much as the ride because that is what makes the connection between us before the connection on either side of the saddle.

    I guess we can talk about it til they ban us without telling us we weren't suppose to talk about it. Seems to be the MO around this site lately. For what was such a comfortable site when I got here just a few short months ago, this site has turned in a direction that will run off the majority of their truly knowledgeable members for fear of banning after telling someone what they needed to hear instead of what they wanted to hear. Oh, wait,, they will be banned for not telling them in a way that coddles and comforts them. To regulate how people interact is telling people they can not be themselves in order to help someone who may need a swift kick in the pants to realize they are screwing up.

    Thanks to all for the info about the fleece-if I get the saddle I will take it to CA when I go & have it fixed there. And also see about sending other things to them for repair, since I can't get them done here. I have a saddle to sell & might take it to the consignment shop, as that is where I got it a few years ago. And I've updated it since then. New matching conchos, etc.

    Thanks Rick for helping me on the Jeep-it's running better, but thinking it needs a new computer-it got hot on just a short drive, don't want the thing to blow up-for sure!

    Hopefully Stan will come back & post-we're still here & enjoyed his company. Welcome Sybil-my Dad was born in Italy, & I love all things Italian-LOL!

    Talon-loved your pictures & seeing what you see on a daily basis. You look very capable-love your hair! Mine is growing out-I'm done w/the dying-haha!

    We're going over to a neighbor's later today-DH will help him w/his vehicles-I'll get some Ocotillo cuttings. Maybe I can get an idea if anybody wants to go on a road trip to pick up a horse-hehe.

    So much to do & my trips are coming up fast. Have to go to Las Vegas for my flight out to see me Sister-that's two hours away-park my truck at a hotel-did that last time-it worked out nicely. But I'm doing it in daylight this time! Night driving on an unfamiliar road w/weak headlights was not fun!

    I don't have a clue what happen with Stan other than his post about maybe being banned but the other one, I saw his posts before they removed them and he was way out of line for no reason but I believe he was intoxicated at the time of posting. You men have got to learn to keep it together

    When you say it got hot,,do you mean the engine got hot or the computer got hot? If the engine, they are notorious for having air pockets in the cooling system and I have learned to park them with the radiator cap high so it can properly burp the system.

    Is there a check engine light coming on? Has he switched the key back and forth 3 times to get the codes and what they are? I would be glad to help with any info I can provide and will look for the ECM this evening as soon as I get out of the truck.

    I've been told that when I was of the drinking type, I always became the funny guy. I never got angry or easily angered while drunk. Either way I haven't had an alcoholic beverage in about 6 years.

    Rick if you like ground work then you would love a round pen. And as far as getting dizzy well, you get use to it

    I think you should build yourself one or get on craigslist and buy a moveable one. It also makes a great safe place for the little ones to learn to ride!

    I have been keeping them on the hook while they ride or pony the horse they are on to keep the control as best as I can. I have thought about building one, but it will have to wait til we find out if we will be in this house another year or make a deal on the other property behind me where the horses are now.

    I'm afraid of putting my foot in my mouth talking about something I don't have all the info on so I won't mention the other guy anymore..

    I really hope Stan stops in to clear all the worries we are having.
