    **** Rick I am sorry you have more cuts to work with.

    My new boarder didn't come this weekend. Her owner decided it was too Hot to trailer her for 8 to 9 hours down from Mn. I agreed it was between 95* and 98* with 90% humidity. So they are planing to bring her on the 21 instead.
    I got some stuff done in the barn and at home..

    Have you all ever gotten Chigger bites from hay? I think the big round I am pulling off of for the dry lots is full of them. I also was Stung by 6 to 7 bees yesterday! I took some benadryl and that just knocked me out.

    awe Hunter looks so pretty. How was his Ouchy doing?

    I hope it works out for the new owner and hunter.

    I don't know why but I thought he was shorter than that LOL

    Popping in for my Monday Post (Hi Nicker!) Quick peek @ last 2-days. Hunter & Stan: hope your loved horses going to good homes (Stan yr pic of you & Stella...)

    Celeste: the kid on static electricity; how did you find a pic of me & my hair?!!

    As for my Monday: just peacefully cleaned all stall/pens. Since had no lesson, took my time w/the horses, getting to know them a bit more. Funny w/Janice's mares Callie & Flicka (1 pen); had found Callie's sweet spot on her withers that makes her lips quivers a couple-3 wks ago. Today she sidled up, looked @ me, then tossed her head wither-ward "like, ok, do it". So. I did. The did it again. Then went to muck out the stall.She followed me in. Her friend Flicka is watching, & Flicka accepts a pet or so, but otherwise is "like,whatever". Flicka came into the stall. I'm standing there, rake in hand,poo around my feet, w/2 mares on either side deciding I'm quite was funny!

    Janice's escape artist Fire tried to test me, but he's backing up from the gate better for me. I swear he "harummphed".

    Asked Janice if I could get out her mare Bailey to groom, after mucking done. She told me again Bailey's (can't recall how old she is) story: she'd been hit, by a man, & Janice had alot of work to do to reinstall her trust. Janice said she's willing,wants to to the right thing,is absorbing of praise & needs it, is insecure but getting better..she just wants to know that she won't get hurt. Janice looked @ me & said "Gee. Sounds like someone I know!" I had to laugh. Janice only knows about the crash-returning from crash,never told her about the hitting by men I've received in my "past life"...think she intunes that anyway,'tho. Anyhow....I like Bailey, & told Janice I want to get to know her, & she me, before she decides it's time for me to be on her big red baby.

    So...after mucking, I got out Ms Bailey. Janice said she can be hard to catch, so it'll be a lesson for my patience. I got the halter, & went into the pen. Bailey was munching hay in her stall. I turned my back, & fiddled w/the halter (yes, have watched "Horse Whisperer", can you tell?!"...btw, all the Famous Guys have nothing on Janice...she's the real deal, tucked away quietly in Colo...) Turned around, & Bailey is out,watching me. I walked up slowly, then just gently put the lead rope around her neck, & haltered her. We walked out. Janice, down the shed row, said "You made a liar outta me!" I said next time she'll be wiser to me, I just got lucky.

    Anyway...brushed her out really good, including shedding blade & mane & tail conditioner so could get those 2 things purty. She's REALLY nice w/her feet, so could clean them good (which I was glad for, as we have a week of rain expected, & her back hooves were full of manure...she tromps in her poo.) I did make her shine. She's a lovely red, mother Thoroughbred,father quarter horse (appendix?), & not much taller than Tommy.

    Told Janice she's my "project". Janice laughed.

    Yes...have pics. 2 of Bailey, one of Janice that I snuck (she said "Good thing I wasn't bending over! I said the gentleman on the chat site would've enjoyed that...!
