    Ccg, I got to the house preparing to go into the shed after the ECM and the guy was there to pick up his horse trailer. The one I did all the metal repairs on and posted progress pics here. He had two new tires for the rear and a jack, but no lug wrench so I had to help him get those on. When they finally left they had the horse trailer and a baby rabbit in their possession. My wife looked at me and said I had 20 minutes to be ready to leave or she would not be a happy camper. That stopped me from getting to the shed as it was 10:30 when we returned and midnight before I got any shut eye. I have no plans for this evening and will surely get in there this afternoon. I will also take pics of anything else I have and if you wish to show it to your DH.

    Terry, yes TB stands for Thoroughbreds. I am glad you are able too see how much we are glad to have you here as a part of our group. I know I am not the only one who looks forward to reading your updates and allowing us to get to know you better after each one.


    Koolio, I'm sorry you had a bad day at school, loaded down with all the added responsibilities at home and in the yard, but I truly believe you are more than adequate for the task. You seem very able to look at what needs done and know how to do it in a way that is efficient and rewarding. I still hope you find relax and relief to have the opportunity to recharge as I'm sure having the neighbor stop by to talk horse as well as the little ride you were able to get it helped slow your mind down just enough to relax a little.


    Paintmefree,, welcome and glad to see you join in. Grab a mug out the freezer, drop a pint of tea in there and grab squat while throwing some conversation out here.

    NM, glad to hear they were getting along again. I agree that any attempt to swing around to bite should find their cheek making contact with my elbow and I see you did give him a whallop for it. As for the muscle relief you can try Listerine on it as I have found it does help. I usually run the water from the faucet over their legs when we return from long rides then massage the Listerine in all four.

    Eole, I liked the pics and the story. Would have loved to seen some pics of the ride, but I'm sure just keeping up with them was a full on chore. Glad you enjoyed it and hope to hear about more of them.


    Lori, thanks for the update on them. Hope you don't get in over your head with taking on the entire barn. We are already suffering from your lack of time in here now and you go and take more of it away. Bad girl .Bad bad girl...gonna make someone break out a crop on you...


    I am feeling much better health wise and thank you all for the well wishes.

    Welcome to our group Paintmefree!

    Rick-How was the movie?

    I hope to make it to the Drive-in tonight to see a double feature of Despicable me 2 and Monsters University but haven't completely decided as it will make for a very late night and we have to be up and out early Saturday morning. I do so want my kids to experience a drive in theatre though and it's been longer than I can remember since I've been to one.

    Baked Potato Soup
    (this recipe is a Huge Stock pot full, I mean enough for your family and several others with leftovers ha ha)

    4 Sticks Sweet Cream Butter
    8 Cups flour
    12 Cups Milk
    2-49oz cans of Chicken broth
    10lbs of red potatoes

    Toppings:
    Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    Green Onion chopped
    Bacon Bits (do not forget this)
    Sour Cream

    I like to bake my potatoes the day before then let them cool and refrigerate them overnight. This gives them a nice soft consistency but they don't fall apart. I just throw mine in a deep pan with a little water and bake on 350 until they are soft.
    Dice up your potatoes and set aside. We like to leave the peels on but that is up to you. Melt the 4 sticks of butter in your stock pot, add the chicken broth until boiling. Slowly add the flour stirring with a whisk just like if your making gravy. If it starts getting too thick you can start adding your milk otherwise add the milk after the flour. Then add your diced up potatoes and heat on low until your potatoes are warmed up- be careful not to scorch. Add salt and pepper to taste, serve in a bowl and ADD TOPPINGS-this may be the most important part : ) and what makes this Baked Potato Soup not just Potato Soup


    Enjoy! And let me know how it goes.

    The movie was pretty good. We got there just in time as it had only started about a minute or two before we sat down. The pastor and his wife, his inlaws, and 2 other couples from church, including the couple I thought we were double dating with. We had to head out as soon as the movie was over since it was a 40 minute drive back home so we didn't get to hang out or even talk to the couple I thought we were going with. Had a very brief talk with the pastor as we were walking out and that was it. I kinda felt bad about not hanging around, but 5 am comes early and I still wanted to spend time with my wife before going to sleep. We stopped off for a bite to eat on the way home since there was no time before the movie. Had a very good conversation over the meal that continued the other 30 minutes going home. Got home around 10:30pm and spent more quality time together before finally trying to sleep for a couple of hours before getting up.

    I haven't been to a drive in for over 15 years. The one back home in Ms. Closed down even longer than that, but the town next to where Michelle lived when we met had one and we took the kids there a couple of times.

    well I hope to not be away to to much. I've thought about selling the salon business but I enjoy the relax time I get here. The away has not really been because of the ranch as much as the internet issues. The hot box I got is not great but it does work most of the time.
    At least it is good enough to get on here and run my CC machine too.

    Glad your feeling better . Hubby said he is feeling worse today :( I wish he would slow down a bit. Today he has a "new girl" riding with him its a good thing we have trust as these ag girls are usually pretty and young.

    Wow Again go away for a few days and a whole lots of reading to do. Glad you didn't leave TJ I like hearing how things are progressing. I liked your pictures!

    Welcome Sibyl and Paint.

    Glad that Alex and Stan will be back, the thread wouldn't be the same without them. I am on facebook and would be up for connecting there.

    Love the pictures Rick.

    Have prospective buyers for Hunter this morning. If he doesn't sell they are both moving tomorrow. Not sure how this will work out. They were in adjacent paddocks on Wednesday when there was a commotion and Hunter was running around his paddock bucking like crazy. We all run over there and looked at Hunter and the three boards knocked down from the fence and said "What did you do now?" Took him out and checked him over no cuts, nothing.
    Took Scotty out of his paddock and lo and behold his back legs are all scraped up. Soo... we know who took down the fence. These 2 are supposed to share a pasture in live in adjacent paddocks when we move, should be interesting. Seems as though Scotty has a dominent streak in him.
