    Love the pics of the backward sitting.

    Stan, it must have been hard to rehome Stella, I just looked at the pics. I have seen many news pics. I've missed so much, seems like all I do is work and when I get back here I have a dozen pages to read through.

    I have hay mites in 2 round bales . Luckily they are only 2 and way on the other side of the ranch away from the good hay. They have attacked me! I finally called the dr and they called a cream in hopefully that will help me but I don't even want to get near the hay now.

    How big are hay mites? Can you see them or are they like chiggers; you feel them but hardly see them. I detest any bug that bites or sucks my blood. I did not even know that hay HAD mites. Will they cause any kind of toxicity problem if your horses injest them? Like those beetles that are super poisonous (forgot the name just now).

    I can't see them on the hay " I have bad eyes though" I can see and feel the bites though. They wont cause any issues with the horses I checked If it would I would take them off it right away... But the bites Are terrible on me and the help. None on the horses.

    Hay/straw mites - if I'm thinking of the right thing are really tiny and live off small rodents like mice and especially birds - they also increase rapidly in numbers getting rid of the hosts is the first step as they need to feed all the time to survive
    They don't seem to bother the horses too much but might be one of the culprits that cause tail and mane rubbing if they do settle there to feed
    Best thing I can suggest is that if your hay loft or barn is fairly airtight you set off one of those 'fumigating bombs' in there that kill insects in general - but check the small print on the label first to be sure it wont taint the hay
    They tend to die off as soon as we get some frosts

    Hi all! Real quick, as I am very tired...the heat day and night is taking a toll. Took a sleeping pill, hope that helps!

    Today was kinda ...the kids were GREAT, but the people I work with are already turning into negative nellies in regards to,the kids. I HATE when teachers degrade kids. I was in copying after school and the second grade teacher was there. Nice person....but never said a positive thing about my current kids or any other business regarding our building! not howI want to end my day...lunch was the same, our 6th grade teacher b*tch b*tch , b* tch.....I almost walked out! This person use to teach the grade above me last year. When I first started working with her, I didn't like her.....then time passes and you become numb to her comments...and then unfortunately, nher negativity infiltrates your soul.... I didn't realize it until I was away from her all summer and I got my mojo back. Noticd RIGHT AWAY that my BFF changed back to his positive self since the b*tchy one move to a different grade level. Scary what people can do to us.

    Tomorrow is Jays X-ray day. Wish us luck!,


    Roaddy...I have to say I was a bit upset at,you.....I always look forward to,your comments about my pictures. am I going to have to fly down there and do a little a$$ wuppen????

    I love,this group. We need to let this what ever it is go and keep making each others day....I'm surrounded by negative, idiots...I need you guys!. Thank gosh I do get to close my door and shut the other adults out! Keeps me in my happy place!

    Have a good night all.

    Nicker! I responded to your private post, hope I did it right.


    I can't stand negative people...what did you say to me recently/: stay strong. The kids need you. I honestly don't know how teachers do what they CAN do; the focus should be the kids, right? Then you have all these.."adults"..getting in the way of that.

    Much good news forthcoming w/Jay's X-ray, I hope.

    Hope Rick isn't bailing, are you, my friend?? Nicker is right, I agree.."we need to let whatever this is go & make each others' day".

    Horses, anyone?

    Wow, Hunter! That is something-having all those people lined up now wanting your horse! It is so good to be back home. Even if only for a few hours. Then off to CA. Very busy agenda there, then again 1 night at home & off to get my girls'. When I get back I'll be able to study the camera book, & hopefully figure out pictures. Then attaching-wish I could find a class for teaching beginning computers-especially for seniors maybe.

    I don't think I ever want to fly out of Las Vegas again-I'd rather drive the 5 hours to my old home area, & leave my vehicle at a friends-we were only 10 minutes away from the Ontario airport & I know how to get around there. All my experiences at Mc Carron have been quite difficult.



    Good luck on the x-rays!

    Yes it was. I have spent a lot of money and time on her but could not make it click. I think horses that have had to many owners tend to shut down. Stella tended to be more at ease with women hense her being sold to a female. The buyer attends the same treks and is known to friends of mine so I will get to know how she is doing.
