    You certainly can, Nicker!

    &..a good quote, that I saw years ago on the notebook of a casino mngr (I was Surveillance for many years @ the casino):

    "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE STUPIDITY OF PEOPLE IN LARGE GROUPS".

    Kinda always reminded me of those crowds Hitler gathered...& we have not learned from history..

    Have to go away now & do an online test for continuing eductaion for the EMT thing. Ugh. "Infectious Diseases". Ugh...

    Thank You all for the positive comments on the Pics.

    Nicker, yes I ride close to home, all Pics from Woodstock to Sykesville.

    I refrain from making many comments on so many threads.
    I know I would get in trouble and have a very short time here.
    I poke fun in some threads here but usually re-write as to not offend.
    Good group here though with kind people, thank you all for making this thread.

    I have been wondering after reading so many other threads???
    Since almost every answer involves the statements "You need a trainer",
    "You need a saddle fitter", "You need a different farrier", "Your horse needs
    A chiropractor" it's very easy to answer most questions here.
    Now I have come to realize that these occupations are in high demand.
    Maybe I need a career change???

    Sorry, had to put some fun back in it.

    MLRider: thanks, fun is good! & yes your daughter looks whupped..great pic! I agree..let's get back to fun here.

    (think maybe I'm the Forrest Gump on this forum.."I do know what love IS".)

    Dang, have to get a bigger index card to list members...Welcome Womack! & somehow I missed Lockwood..welcome!...& e24 too!

    I'm waiting the time limit to retake the stupid test, since...didn't do so well. Sigh..wish me luck.

    & it's a long ways 'till Monday.

    I just read many pages to keep up with everyone. Very nice to see what you're all up to. And it reminded me why I joined this thread recently: you're such a nice crowd, just generally good vibes all around.

    I can't comment on everything but I have to say Corgi: just LOVED the donkey pictures. I bet it makes CCG happy to have one coming with her horse.

    Maryland Rider: great pictures in the river. Your daughter and her horse just look like such a lovely team. Family rides must be special, sharing the horse passion and the fun.

    TJ: those pictures on the beautiful paint: wow! You belong there, great. No saddle, no bit. Impressive...

    NM71, just love the description of your discovery rides.
    Stan, parting with Stella must have been a heartbreak. The girl seems like a good match.

    I've been up to... nothing. Had a great time as volunteer at the endurance event, then back to work with a nasty cold virus. I'm dragging myself around between barn and work. My brain wishes to ride, but body won't follow. Fall is definitely coming soon: we had our first frost two nights ago.

    Oh, my week here is almost at an end. Got keys made for our pet sitter for our next trip. & some gifts for her & some munchies for the plane-I don't think I'll upgrade on the flight home, if it's offered. I have some gum to chew, so my ears hopefully don't get messed up again. And some chocolate. I'll be wearing lots of clothes & my carry-on is heavy w/books. When I get to Las Vegas,I'll be shedding those extra layers. I'll pick up a Subway on the way home so I have time to re-pack for the CA trip. DH will have his lap-top, but he has to sign on, as he had it recognize his fingerprint, not just log on in a normal way. Now he doesn't know how to change it from that.

    We had another lovely meal today @ Old Chicago-it was so good last week, I wanted to go there again. I will be at the airport by noon tomorrow & back in L.V. By 3, then another long drive home, & hope I don't get sleepy. Or run into a lot of rain-we've been getting pounded at home.

    Tj-hoping the next test goes better for you.

    Another day closer to getting my girls'. My CA riding partner is taking Sunday off work & trying to arrange a ride for that morning. It would be so great to go out w/the group again, & I will have my camera.

    I flunked the danged online test. Will have to retake. Lack of interest, I guess..

    Nicker, I just Amazon-ordered (cheap!) Kahonov's Tao of Equus & Riding Between the Worlds. That's what am interested in.

    Long time ago, @ the stable where I first tried all this stuff (then onward to disaster-hiatus), I went to a mare hanging out by the pasture fence, just to talk. I kept swiping the flies away from her, I was crying, & talked (about everything, not just horse stuff,everything) while she listened. After a bit, she lowered her head then blew her breath into my face. It was cold, & froze my face & lips for a bit...then she walked away. Now, that sounds airy-fairy, I realize. But, it happened. I actually called Linda Kahonov (really, I did), & told her about it. She said horses have extroidainary (sp) ways, & I don't recall what else she said. Well. There it is. I've never told anyone this, except Ms Kahonov (who I never bothered again).

    I am NOT airy-fairy. But, the thing happened. It wasn't the last time something "odd" happened when I talked w/a horse (& they were mares, the both times).

    But it happened. Had to finally say it. Kick me outta here for being goofy, but it did.

    YES!! Lets get back to the reason we are here......horses!! Today was HOT HOT HOT!! 90! So,I thought there is not a better time for one more bath of the season. So much fly spray and grit, needed to come off.

    Wasn't sure how jay would do with the hose and all.....but true to form, he was a trooper. Actually he seemed to appreciate the cold shower more than Rainn!

    He looks skinny from the front, but he is a big boned boy!

    Maryland, LOVEd the pic of your daughter. Cracked me up! Is she face first in his bumm? Lol. That could be dangerous!

    Nice pic NM!

    TJ, if you need assistance to get through your material on infectious disease, I'd be glad to help if I can. When do you have to take the test again?
