I guess it isnt the filly as much as the opportunity it may bring for Bre. The girl who is coming with the new filly is. She is the one I am hoping Bre can train with. She does mounted shooting so it could be allot of fun for Bre.

That and the barn is Full :)

We took the kids at our church on a 5 mile canoe trip down a section of the Flint River. They had a blast. The adults however .............. What we failed to research in advance was that due to the drought at that time, the water levels were extremely low. The lightweight youth happily floated down the shallow river. The heavier adults repeatedly hit bottom. We had to get out of our boats and carry them for over half of the trip. We turned over, got soaked, and totally worn out. We all complained, but looking back, it was really funny. There is one lady in the church that has never been seen in public without her hair and makeup fixed to perfection. Her husband managed to turn their boat over and she got soaked!

That has been almost 10 years and the church is still talks about it sometimes. They long since forgiven the DH and now they all say they loved it.

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.

Thanks Rick. I wasn't easy to decide to let him go on trial but I have to. I felt really bad telling the young girl that he was going elsewhere on trial but this lady offered $800 more. Its about an hour away from my barn so its not too bad.

Lori, I hope it does work out for Bre and her training. I know we recently talked about working with our kids vs having them with a trainer.

Is there still a football team there? Oh, must be high school football, sorry.




You're welcome Sandi. I know the hesitation you feel as I know I need to put a few of mine up for a new home, but have continued to procrastinate doing it. Told my wife she needs to list the dog she supposedly got me up for rehoming as well since I told we have too many animals before she ever thought it a good idea to bring home.

Kayaking trip has been cancelled as the creek is really high from all the rain over the last 2 months. They have not been open all week and said that if we have small kids or are inexperienced then we shouldn't go. Bummer, now I have decided to come on into work tomorrow and make money to enjoy on the slower days when they ever come around. Lol

I'm guessing that is a smart Butt remark as I am sure you know who the Nebraska Huskers are Big 10!!! UNL.

I will leave it up to Bre if she wants to work with Shari. I hope she does though. Our old Barn manager actually helped her alot.

We are going to look over the events calendar to see if there is another weekend open through Oct as they close up from then til spring.

Hopefully Bre will like her and be interested in lessons with her.
