    Well I had to Ground my daughter today from the Ranch. I will have to do more work but it was needed.
    Her grades are slipping and she is not getting her home chores done.
    So untill that improves she will not be able to come.

    Sooo looks like Hunter is sold. She had the vet take blood sample as she thinks he drinks a lot of water, so pending the results she will be buying him! I find it interesting that this vet said nothing about him being sore on his right front. I think the other vet just made it up so she wouldn't buy him.

    I bet Hunter will be fine.

    My sister had a horse sold 10 years ago for a good price. The woman's vet told her that the horse (an appaloosa) was almost blind and would be completely blind within a year. My sister gave the horse to my daughter and me. 10 years later, at age 26, the horse can see better than I can.

    I wonder about the vets that get it wrong the other way. They think a horse is ok, but it is not.......

    Hard time catching up on posts this week; haven't even "liked" 'cuz would have to poke the button alot..& it's only my "Tuesday" night.

    CCW, in answer to question a couple pgs ago: Wally shipping on the rubber boots was only $1.67. The only Walmart store in metro area that had them in stock is "clear over" in West Denver. Gas would've cost more (& time wasn't available). Even the more expensive boots were sold out...Denver must've gotten scared w/all the recent water events.

    I forget who advised the stitching vs rubber-sealed, but I ordered these w/out thinkin' of that. Looking @ the pics closely, don't think they're stitched, but maybe they'll do for this fall & winter. StateLine Muck Boots are on the wishlist,so believing in Santa Claus, lol. Anyhow, they'll be here Friday; fingers crossed will work for now.

    CW, please get better. That's way too much "ouch".

    Sandi, I'm happy Hunter has found his home. Meant to be after all?!

    Will go out to SkyView this Monday & happily trudge thru the mucking. No lesson, Janice & husband leaving for airport after Janice feeds. Hoping there's an opportunity to get Bailey out for some aquaintance time. If Janice doesn't want me to do that this time, as she might have to go, that's ok. I'll hang out w/her in her pen for a bit.

    'Nuff for me right now. Everyone stay safe.

    Hey everyone! Just stopping in to say hello and let you know I am still around. I have just been so busy at work and my evenings and with the weather being so wonderful, I have been riding in the evenings and weekends.

    Lots of riding....I believe Isabella and I have conquered her fear of the scary bridge leading to the trails behind the farm and I have been taking her deeper on thise trails by herself. It is so nice being able to do that and there is something so peaceful about it being just you and your horse!

    Some cows broke through a fence at the neighbors farm and they have ended up in one of the horse paddocks where I board. After I finished riding this evening, I wanted to see what Isabella would do when she saw them...as you can see from this video, there was not much of a reaction. Maybe we'll try team penning!!!



    CW, hope you feel better soon!

    CaCowgirl, I bet you are so excited aout your trip and getting your horses!

    Hunter...keeping my fingers crossed that the sale goes through!

    Everyone else, sorry I am not responding personally...gotta go run some errands real quick before the new season of Survivor begins tonight! Addicted to that show!

    Take care everybody!

    Recieved a phone call from the new owner of Stella last night. As soon as she said her name I felt my bank balance get lighter. I had decided if she complained about Stella I would giver her money back.

    But all she did was rave Stella did this and Stella did that she comes when I whistle her or call her (Well I taught her that) I wish Bugs would remember it. She is over the moon inlove with Stella, she said she has found her for life horse, that makes me feel better.

    I was concerned Stella may play up and she would move her on. That is why I would have brought her back I did not want to see Stella getting with the wrong owner and suffering mean treatment, but it seems Stella is contented and behaving. She will be on the treks I attend and I will take Bugs over to them for a ride, it seems they have a 10 mile road loop they ride.

    Its raining here, on checking the grass this evening I notice one of the blades of grass had got longer, now that's confidence building isn't it. At that rate a blade a day I can bring Bugs home in a year or two

    One more day then its the weekend. Hell i'm looking forward to it. I have never felt so tired as I do this week even my disposition has turned to poo.

    Cheers all and keep riding.

    Morning all!

    Yea! Stan!

    Ya know I was thinking while getting ready.....I haven't even been back into horses a year yet!?!? How crazy is that? I got Skye last October, and Rainn the week before Christmas! Wow! A lot has happened!!

    After two late nights of meetings, five or after, I hope to skedaddle early and RIDE.

    Therefore....I need to run....got TONS to do.

    Have a good day everyone!!

    We have been getting off work at 4 this week which gives me another hour to do things before ending the day. Instead of using it to enjoy the horses, I have been burning the roads getting other things taken care of.

    I finished up the last of the needed things just about 30 minutes before dark so made up my mind I am going to get in the saddle even for a few minutes. So I took out for the pasture and caught up Trusty. Brushed him down real good as he was covered in sand all over his back. Got him saddled up and was just about to mount up when my 3rd daughter and grandson come meandering across the pasture. So after making a loop around 2 of the pastures I return to collect the grandson up into the saddle with me. We make 2 passes around all 4 pastures then let Trusty back to his friends. It felt great and Trusty did really good. He didn't show any signs of his leg bothering him, but I'm still not going to rush it. He has good hair growth coming back over the area and I don't want to inhibit that progress.

    Will have a picture of me and the grandson in the saddle later this morning as my daughter took the pic with her phone.


    Lori, proud of you for choosing to her discipline over your work load. She will be all the better for it and hopefully keep this lesson added to the others that our actions have consequences. Have a great day hun.


    CW, prayers for continued healing.

    Ccg, hows is the stove installation coming?

    Stan, I can box up some of my grass and send to you as I have more than needed at the moment..

    Nicker, you just keep on keeping on, darlin. As Joe Dirt would say, Life is a garden and you just got a dig it!.

    Terry, I hope your week goes easy on you so you have plenty of energy for Tommy and Janice.


    Corgi, I can't see the video at work, but sure sounds like you are making great strides with Isabella and the trail rides.
