    Cacowgirl- Payaso is 6 years old, gaited, small around 800 lbs, has always been barefoot, a uniquely marked bay who has a wonderful temperament. I thought he fit enough of your requirements to at least tell you about him. Just for the record, the video was made after he had been stalled for a few days and I knew he would want to move around so I purposely took video of that. I realize it's not a great video as far as showing where he is at in his training. I appreciate you taking the time to watch the video though.
    I'm sure your perfect horse is out there, just take your time and you'll find him or her. Please keep us updated with how it's going. We love horse shopping with our friends. Right Gang?

    Welcome Paintmefree!

    And thank you Country Woman for keeping up with us all.

    Hope everyone is doing well and having fun.

    I do enjoy horse shopping, but it can be stressful, too. The time between meet, greet, fall in love, & commit is short compared to how long a horse/rider may be together. I don't like to sell/change horses, so I see it as a very long commitment. Also, there's lots of sunshine here, so white markings can lead to sunburn. My Gelding (w/lots of chrome) had a sunburned nose last summer, & he didn't like me doctoring it, or later putting sunscreen on him. Some people will tattoo around white rimmed eyes-I would rather just avoid the problem & not have a horse w/a lot of white.

    I'm thinking about this next horse & I need to be packing for my trip! And fix some meals ahead for DH. It is raining again here-we had lots of thunder & rain during the night last night-the monsoon season should be ending soon-we are pretty green right now. I will be in Portland by noon on Wednesday, then back in Vegas around 3 the following Wednesday-then a 2 hour drive home & leave the next morning for So. CA. Busy, Busy! We plan on coming home on Monday the 16th~~w/boots & saddle ready to go!

    I'm not having a great start to the week its Monday here while you are still enjoying the weekend I am in the poo, again.
    Seems the A H in this home have stuffed up the septic tank and it backed up in the pipes popping out to greet us in the most unexpected places.

    I spent sunday digging around the tank and cleaning up. Today with things under controll I await the arrival of a high pressure cleaning water pump and can finish the job mutch to the delight of all concerned, as it will be great to get the loo working again after a 48 hour wait, if you get my drift.

    Now you all ask what has this got to do with horses. Not mutch. Just thought I'd share the relality of country living. However it may stop me from the cattle drive on Thursday and Friday which will annoy me no end as Roslyn will be riding a friends horse while I show off Bugs to her. Just some of the things married couples do. My horse is better than yours, but I would not voice the words for fear of missing out on dinner for a few weeks.

    Cheers all

    Hunter may not really scar that badly. Sometimes those facial injuries come out a lot better than you think they will, especially when they get prompt attention like he did.

    Sitting around waiting for the equipment to arrive and I got to thinking Not a good thing to have happen to me.

    I was daydreaming about the treks I had been on and the ones to come when looking into the sky this thought hit me.

    Ever googled your own properity and focused in on it to see the buildings and the trees and the horses and sheep in the paddocks. Fantistic technology. I google to see if Roslyns home if the car can be seen on there latest pass then she is home. Makes sense

    On one of the treks when in a large paddock about 20 of us and out to one side there is this lone dead tree. Bit like a power pole.
    Anyhow, on of the party had to have a pit stop, as we all do when out riding and the only cover was the tree so behind it she went. We all stood around in the paddock waiting for her and holding her horse. Can you picture that sceen. Go on.

    Now add this. The satillite from Google earth going overhead, taking snap shots and updating the information on that farm you are riding on.

    Its a problem.

    Haha that would be funny. I think I will have to do some googling.
    The lady that was going to buy hunter had him vetted. I had to disclose his ligament injury and he told her that he was repeatedly sore on that leg. I call BS he wasn't sore at all. So she declined him. Lady at new barn going to try him in her lesson program and may buy him. Had potentials out last Friday as well. He seems to prefer the kids

    Happy holiday Monday everyone! Is been a busy few days, so I have had lots or catching up to do.

    Hunter - sorry to hear abou Hunter's injury. Hopefully it will heal soon. Maybe the lesson program is just the right situation for him.

    Stan - hope you get your plumbing up and running. I know from experience that is not one of the better aspects of country living.

    It has been a busy weekend with chores around the acreage and getting ready for school. We bought a car for our daughter on Saturday, and pick it up Tuesday. It will be a big help with her having her own transportation for work. Last night we had friends over for a cream can dinner, that turned out exceptionally well. Today I have to hit the books and get ready for my students tomorrow. I am a little anxious about it, but it will be good get back into routine again.

    Although the weather has been lovely, the days are getting much shorter, and that is cutting into riding time. My daughter and I haul in for our usual lesson this evening and will continue until the end of September. After that, we ride only on weekends, and the odd evening if I can get away from school early enough. Summer is wonderful here, but it always seems so short.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful Labour Day!
