    Terry, thank you for the family feeling as it is mutual and I'll gladly talk to you. Google+ is something fairly new they came out with to try and compete with FB. If you bring up Google search then you can look at the tool bar across the top(header). At the far left you should see (+You),click on it and it will take you through the steps to sign up.

    Nicker, it is always a pleasure to read about your rides and events planned. Where in Florida is the niece schooling? I think you mentioned it once before, but not recent enough for me to remember.

    e24, I know that feeling all to well. I've been working 10 hours a day then spending another couple of hours in the evening working with the horses. By the time I'm done with the horses I start wishing I had kept my four wheeler to get me back to the house. Lol

    Roaddy, actually our niece plays for a university up here, but it's a Christmas tournament we are thinking of going to. Ya know...to get away from snow and cold!

    Will have to ask DH what university they are playing at. Last New Year's they played at Notre Dame, which was really exciting to visit!

    I'll look into the Google + thing...I think I have it, but not sure how to use it either.

    Happy Friday all!

    Well today is school and then cleaning in the barn, we'll be gone all of Saturday and will only have today and a few hours Sunday afternoon to get it all cleaned up for the new boarder. I swear every time I clean those spider webs the spiders work overtime to build them back.

    I'm stocked up on feed, might go get a cork board for the feed room, thought that might come in handy. I don't know if I'm excited about actually have a boarder or just the $$ ha! Ha!

    I'm sorry if I already mentioned this but if any of you like me struggle with the decision of what to feed your horses check out feed xl.com its a really cool site. You do have to pay for it but you can see what it's about by just going to the site. It has been so helpful and fun to play around with. Oh I'm really thinking I've already told you all this already senior moment

    Hope everyone is well! Can't believe it's the weekend already!!

    Nvr- I must have missed your videos! Going back to watch them now.

    I'm looking forward to this weekend. Tomorrow we are taking the teens at church on a kayaking trip down the Ecofina Creek. Meeting up there at 9am to head out. Should take most of the day as we will stop somewhere for lunch before continuing on to the end. This is my first time to kayak this creek so I'll try to get plenty of pics for y'all to enjoy.

She has already had her blood drawn for a Coggins, her papers are at the Registry, maybe they'll be back to the owner by the time I can go pick her up. I'll meet her at the vet's office, & get the health certificate & brand inspection (he lives next-door to her) so I should be riding her in 16 days! She is also coming w/her companion donkey, so I will be studying about donkeys while I'm at my sister's later this week. I'm sure they will have something in the excellent Portland Library System. What a wonderful thing to look forward to! A beautiful red chestnut gaiting Morgan! I am over the moon! A Mare! -- I am so in love already! I must pack! Drive to Vegas-get on a plane. 16 days.......

    Yay!!! Another Morgan!! I am loving my guy, his trot is so smooth. How do you tell if they are gaited. I know he has 3 speeds at the trot, Fast Faster and Mach 3, lol

    OK the lady that wouldn't talk price came back with an offer when I told her no trial without discussing price. She is giving me $1000 deposit and I am taking him to her place tomorrow. I need to see where he will be staying. I have a really good contract and I will worry horribly about him but I have to sell him and this seems to be the only way. She is an older lady and I think he will be OK with her. Its not like people are banging down the doors. If I had the boys at home there wouldn't be this issue but board is expensive. I did hear from another lady that is very interested in leasing him if he doesn't sell.

    Oh well wish us luck!

    I read that pepperment oil will deture spiders.. maybe that will help? Put in a spray bottle and spray where they like to spin..

    I have 4 cork boards and I love them that way if someone needs to leave a note they can. Not that I need 4.. Hey to bad your so far I would give you one they are brand new. :P

    We have a new boarder coming tomorrow. I am excited to meet this filly.
    I'll check out the Webpage. But I am pretty happy with my feed right now

    Sandi, I wish you the very best of luck and think that is a fair deal. I'm also glad that you will know where he is going to be incase it doesn't work out.

    I understand your need to free up funding to properly care for Scotty and hope this does work for all parties involved. I hope you have a safe trip there and back and that her place is fitting.

    I like peppermint too much to give it to the spiders.
