    Nice mares... even from a distance... Too bad you didn't use the zoom button. Haha


    Sounds like Bailey is smitten with you and hope you continue to enjoy it.

    Just stopping in quickly before I head out to a schoolboard meeting. I do not want to go but I need to present something for the board to approve so there is no way out of it. I would rather stay home and watch the Redskins play their opening game! Go Skins!

    Tj..Bailey is gorgeous!

    Hit another milestone with Isabella yesterday. She will cross the bridge heading out on the trail if she follows another horse but when we are by ourselves I have to get off and lead her across. Yesterday I used a lot of patience and persistence and we crossed the bridge with me in the saddle and not another horse in sight! Success!

    Now I am off to drive the 30 minutes back to work to attend this meeting. :(
    How many days til Friday???

    Rick, I don't know how to use the zoom on my camera; I have it set on "Intelligent Auto", which means "Taking Pics For Dummies". Yes, beautiful mares all!

    Tjt-Bailey is lovely & often horses just take to new people & seem to put the past out of their memory w/some folks.

    Rick-did you get the email w/the pics-just wondering.

    Had the lovely fondue at Gaston's. Then I went & got a haircut-kind of a spur of the moment/impulse thing. Most of the red/brown color is now gone, & the grey is what is left. It's so much lighter & I like not having all that weight on my neck & tangling in my purse strap. Should be a lot easier to care for also.

    1 more day here, then to the airport for all that reading time pre-flight,then the flight & a long drive home. Repack for my next trip,-4 nights-then back home, & get ready to get my girls'. Need to get some feed in for them & get the water buckets filled, mats straightened, salt holders filled, etc. Hopefully DH will be able to help w/some of that.

    It willl be an adjustment afterwlomost a year w/out horses-but I am so looking forward to it. I'm hoping Rick can get in a picture for you all to see her. If he got the email.... I'm not good /computers at all....

    TJ, your day sounds like a great soul settling day!! Love the looks of Bailey. Your story made think of Tao of Equus. Didn't you say you read it? Maybe time to read it again??

    Rainn had her pedi today. She's been barefoot for a good week,or two since she lost one. I think she is sounder( is that a word?) without shoes! I'm keeping her that way. She didn't limp once yesterday on our walk, which is unusual. But good of,course.

    X-rays and dental work postponed until Thursday. Which is probably best ...it's to be 90 tomorrow.

    We had a really good day in 3 rd grade today! Considering they came with a warning, I'm really impressed with several aspects of these kids. For example, I like them to act out their vocabulary words. Dramatizing helps the memory. Last year I didn't have the guts to ask the kids todo it until later in the year. Always have a few wild ones. This year, I asked, they performed ....perfectly!!. No silly business! Makes me a happy teacher, and a happy teacher does more FUN things!

    Speaking of....heard from my coauthor. He's coming for sure to watch me teach in November. it's very exciting, but he also makes me very nervous!! I look at him as the 'teaching guru'. But he is super nice and down to earth, so I should just relax.... lol. Then we go over to a university to teach college kids the next day. Talk about stressful!! Teaching beside him is TOUGH! He's an ex-actor.....very dramatic and good. Oh well...they like me there bc I'm in the trenches....real world. Hahaha

    Well, time to watch 'my show'. Anyone else do Netflix. Bout the only thing I watch....series on DVD. Finishing the series Brothers and Sisters now. I get so invested in these characters after so many seasons. When they are over it's actually kinda sad!

    CCG, glad,your trip is good.

    Roaddy....... ugh, when will it end?

    Talk soon.

    TJ, is your trainer young? Looks like it from the back. I pictured her older.

    Hello all!

    I've been trying to catch up, much typing in this thread.
    I have been riding though, using some much needed vacation days.
    I promised some pics.

    My wife and I in the river.

    When they blow the wistle before the tunnel, that wakes up your horse!

    My wife, daughter, and me down by the river.
    Yes, I am the old fat man on the little horse!
    He can be a bit to handle, no one else will ride him.

    We have been riding the last 4 weekends plus some days off.
    Running the deer in the fields and swimming in the river has been great.

    I hope everyone is doing well, I have read some of the resent postings
    But it is difficult to catch up.
    Taking pictures on the trail with a cheap camera has been difficult.
    I can't manage taking a good DSLR for fear of damage.
