    Thanks everyone!

    Roaddy, I'm sorry you are going through tough times right now...that's why being here is good for you! I don't know how long you've been married, but it's a tough road sometimes. It takes a lot of effort on both person's side to make it work. So glad to hear you are going to have an outsider hear things. Having that little girl with you probably isn't easy either...or MIL. I bet with all of that...communication gets lost along the way. I've watched that with my siblings. Keep workin' at it....and keep coming here to get your mojo rejuvenated!

    Will get pics of our weekend.

    Have a great day all!

    Cheers!

    NM71: Great news for Jay, what a relief! Have fun this week end.
    CCG: both donkey and mare look really nice. When do you get the horse home with you?
    Roadyy-Rick: sending good vibes your way, take care of yourself. Life sends us curve balls sometimes... Looking back, I believe we grow more from periods of turmoils than from periods of peace and quiet.

    Becka: ouch! How is your lip? You said:

    Hum, that could have been a nice sight... without the hoof kicking following scene...

    Week end, and pretty much out of my cold virus. I'm sure it was a "man-cold", you know, the worst kind. Should be riding this week end. Trying to get a friend who just lost her 33yo arabian mare to join me.

    My horses get a skin infection on their bellies and chest each year at this time. Mud, bugs and humidity I suppose. I usually use betadine or chlorexidine. This year I'm trying Tea-Clenz. Anyone familiar with that product? Seems to work well so far.

    Have a nice week end everyone!

    Wow when it rains it pours. I have been getting messages daily for hunter. Today was a big show barn about 4 hours from here. Where were all these people last week. I now have 10 people waiting to see if he sells or not

    Buy some of those really long rubber gloves to protect your arms from the beasties
    Hunter loves loves loves hay soup. He is such a messy boy

    Yes, yesterday was a drag, but our minor flooding & road closures were/are nothing at all. Parts of Colorado (& some not far from me) have been devastated. Commerce City got hit hard, (evac's around Rocky Mtn Arsenal-turned-WildLife area); not far @ all from SkyView. Texted Janice this morning, was worried about her & the horses. She texted back all ok, just alot of mud, & she was going to turn out the horses to the field this afternoon, as the footing was better than in the pens.

    Sun came out today,'tho sky darkened late afternoon, but it only lightly rained. Going to go to Target on Sunday & hopefully find some ol' fashioned rubber rain boots to fit over my boots, so can muck like a pro on Monday...anticipate much mud,much poo.

    Sandi, I have to laugh! All the folks lined up for Hunter. Might give your "try out" person a good think, knowing she has competition! May Hunter be the Winner.

    It would definitely keep the price firm on Hunter with all the added interest. Have you heard anything from her so far?


    Thanks for all the good vibes as I can use them.

    Here are pics from last evening with kids and horses.

    Good morning!
    Roadyy- it is good to see you popping in a little more again. I hope things get better for you at home. I know you are the type of person who stays focused on what matters most. Please know we are all here for you. ((Hugs))

    Hunter - whatever happens, it sounds like you will find a great home for Hunter. It is just a little funny the way life seems to work.

    Nicker - I hope you have a fantastic ladies weekend!

    Eole - good to see you checking in too. Glad you are feeling better.

    Critter Sitter - I hope you get those bites taken care of. Being itchy is the worst! I'd like to wish you an early frost, but sometimes we do get what we wish for in spades.

    It's been a busy week again here, with amazing weather. The farmers should be thrilled. We have broken temperature records this week with temps above 30 celcius (86-90F). It makes for a very hot classroom, but beautiful evenings. Considering last year winter started on October 10, we won't complain.

    Between lesson planning, getting new glasses for the kids and just getting back to routine, I've been trying to get as much horse time in as I can. DD and I have been working with Cheeky Pony as she has decided to suddenly give out a little sass, a few bucks and a lot of crow hopping. She is also having trouble picking up her right lead at the canter, so I've been lunging her while my daughter cues her from the saddle. DD has some mild scoliosis that we think is contributing to the problem. The pony is young and green so anything that brings her off balance at all is exaggerated. I think the pony is also weaker on one side, so we are working at building muscle and helping her develop better balance as well.

    I am continuing lessons with my dressage coach until the end of the month, but each week is getting darker earlier. I'm still having trouble sitting Koolio's big airy trot, so I've been riding bareback a bit to try to find my seat a little better.

    This morning I am working on a bit of schoolwork before I head out to do the usual acreage chores (mowing, harrowing, moving a fence line). Tomorrow I hope to go on a fundraising trail ride for STARS, the local air ambulance (helicopter) service. It looks like the weather is going to be fantastic.

    I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

    I know! Where were all these people a week ago. I'd like to see him go to a kid. He seems to prefer them. I heard from lady on trial but she is not saying too much. "Had a nice ride" I did let her know I have a line up of people. She must like him or she probably would be bringing him back today rather than pay for vet check next week. Off for a trail ride today. It will just be me and Scotty. Oh we'll I enjoy his company lol

    Well Scotty and I had a great ride today and he even just walked right on the trailer. Atta boy. Also heard from the lady that has hunter on trial. She said he was a star today. Took him to a place that has cross country jumps and he didn't even bat an eye. I think she likes him!!!!

    ((((Hugs back))))
