Stan I know how you feel. It was hard to drop off Hunter yesterday. Go spend time with Bugs. I went right back to the barn and rode Scotty and I felt better. It was the right decision. Hope he stays with this lady.

I don't have enough hair to do any thing with. And what is there is grey. I'd love to be able to wind the clock back a few years.

A face lift may help I could have the wrinkles on the back of my neck tightened. That should have the effect of lifting my butt back up onto the end of my back bone and the extra weight pulling down should tighten the wrinkles in my brow. That would transfer to my man boobs lifting them higher also lifting my stomach up off my belt transfering further to a general over all uplifting. All that just by having the wrinkles in the back of my neck tightened. Got to consider it don't I

Whats that got to do with horses. It would give Bugs a fright he would think he has a new owner and be on his best behavour

Morning all!

Had another really nice ride yesterday. The morning was cool, overcast, and misty but another new trail brought a smile to my face. (Actually just being in the saddle does that! ). Took another route the neighbor brothers told me about on their property. This one wound through fields, a bit of woods and dumped me out behind an Amish school and sawmill. From there I could travel the dirt road home. We saw lots of new stuff....many Amish ponies, dogs, turkeys flying past us, and those dang piggys again! he did well!

DH came home from camp and wanted to visit the horses as I did chores!! this I'm liking!! He's trying to 'better' his health, drink less alcohol, and get more exercise. YEA!! So we decided to take Rainn and Maggie for a walk. Here's the funny....remember he's a city guy, not real keen on animals, especially BIG ones...but he's learning real quick how they bring pleasure to life....anyway, he's standing there waiting for me and I needed to grab Maggie's leash, so I tossed him rainn's lead rope....with her attached...and walked away!! he had no choice but to hold her!! Lol. If I don't force him, he won't do it. It was funny he started walking and of course she followed, so he went in a circle and she did too! You had to be there, and know my DH, but I just giggled!! he did well, I'm impressed.. He's trying hard.

Koolio, have FUN this week!!! Knockem alive!! Two books I recommend.....Green Light Classrooms, and U-Turn Teaching! These really will engage your kids in their learning!! make your life easier and you will have more energy for the horses.

Have a super day all!

Nicker-glad you are getting out on Jay. We didn't get to the library yet, & I finished the book on donkeys I brought. We went shopping & I bought a bunch of books,some will be shipped home today along w/a box of other purchases. Hopefully, just 1 more box of books, then no more shopping! I did pack light, so there is some room in my carry-on. Did see a nice pack saddle @ Coastal-pricey! I used to have one-loaned it out-it's gone.

Today we're going to 1 of my favorite places & having fondue-I can feel my pants tightening now! I will have to lose about 10 pounds once I'm home to feel comfortable in my breeches again. But for right now, I'm enjoying every bit that goes into my mouth.

Happy trails to all!

Read some good updates other than the shortage of thread members by one.

My horses have resorted to finding placed to cut themselves so they don't have to do any work. Doc has gashed his left rear hip through the rug so he is now being treated with Underwood's as well as Sugar and Boo on their right rear hip. I think I found and fixed the fence where they were getting out, but time will tell. I did get a quick bareback/halter/lead rope makeshift rein ride in on Trusty and Doc before church yesterday morning then rode Trusty the same way after church when I found the wounds on the other horses. I believe it was Little Man who stomps the fencing down in order to get out and it didn't help that the electric fence had a couple of insulators come loose allowing it to short out on trees to keep the voltage to biting them where they were going through at.

I'm used to coming in here on Monday and talking over an hour to catch up, but didn't take long at all this time. Seems with school back in now, most don't have the time to visit here as much. Understandable.

Been busy here at work lately as well. Seems everyone is ready for the cooler weather and patience is running in short supply so they take it out on the equipment..
