I know exactly what my guy would do as he is very predictable.

1. Plant feet

2. Lean back

3. Snort

4. Gait as fast as you can, only because you are soooo overly excited you end up gaiting in place scared to death that thing is going to eat you until finally you are past it or it leaves. Which take forever because remember you are gaiting in place.

5. Never ever, ever and I mean never trust that spot or anything that looks remotely like that spot again in your life. If you even feel like you might be close to that spot then repeat steps 1-5

I love my little gelding.

OK... got that out of my system. Sorry for the interruption.... Go back to normal conversation and don't mind me.....

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

Um is that just a vent or is it directed at some of us in the over 40's thread?

We can be a little stupid so please clarify.

My girls' are home. I'm utterly exhausted from two 10-hour driving days, back-to-back. I'm off to bed & my neighbor wants to ride tomorrow morning.

We dont have moose in NZ though some say there are a few in the south Island.

Bugs and a moose. He would spin on a dime, dump me on my butt, wait for me to stand and then make himself as small as he could while sneeking a peek from behind me.

Bugs has the heart of a lion but the common sense to allow someone else to take the hit. Don't you just love it when you know your horse is going to dump you, and take off to safety, and then turn around and look to see if you survived.

I don't have Bugs at home so went to see him this morning, whistled and to my surprise he responded.

NO he did not whistle back, but he did wander up to say hi. I still can't bring him home, not enough grass and I have also sprayed a couple of paddocks in an attempt to get rid of some of the weeds.

I'm cooking tonight, and again No, i'm not in the bad books just thought I'd surprise Roslyn. I can always do with some brownie points in reserve. Bound to need them sooner than later.

Cheers all and get out there and ride The temp has gone up a couple of degrees in my part of the world. Spring has sprung.

Has to be me, I'm the only one stupid enough to stand on toes.

joking, or am I.

Dinner tonight, thin cheese slice rolled inside a slice of ham, rolled inside a thin slice beef. Garlic, pepper to give it a punch.
Greens and smashed potatoes. Gravey. Not very romantic i know, but its a start. Bar of chocolate for after, after.

Cacowgirl - we are anxiously awaiting pictures of your girls once you rest up.

Nicker - it sounds like you are getting in some nic e fall rides.

Eole - I love the colors! We don't get ther reds here.

Roadyy - it sounds like you are getting you mojo back. Glad to see you.

Hunter and Stan - I'm glad the new homes for Hunter and Stella are working out.

Country Woman - I hope you are healing up quickly!

We have a beautiful weekend coming up again, although it did freeze pretty hard earlier in the week. The garden veggies are officially done. The combines are working 24-7 pulling in the crops. The smell of the dust makes DH nostalgic and sentimental and makes me sneezy and itchy. I'll be glad when harvest is over, but am also happy that it seems a good one this year. It also looks like the second cut of hay is pretty good, a relief since the first cut got rained on. Fortunately, I have had my hay for the winter since early August and it is good quality.
I am hoping to get in a trail ride in on Sam tomorrow and some arena work with Koolio this afternoon. I am trying to find a balance between work and home, so staying at school later every day and trying not to bring anything home. Weekends, I still have to play some catch up. Next week I take all my 7th graders on a field trip to a place called Jurassic Forest. Basically it is a natural park where the have placed about 40 or 50 full size animatronic dinosaurs in the woods along an interpretive path. I have been before and loved it, so I hope my kids do too.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

I will be calling the admin on monday.. Thank you all for confirming what I thought..

I got to ride last night

then one of the other horses had a bloody nose and i got worried.

not sure if she bonked her nose or it may be something worse. I have been keeping a eye on it. but I am a worry wart.

my newest boarder may end up being ALOT of work.. so far she wants me to fly sheet and mask all day then take off at night and last night it was 45* so she wanted blanketed then off in the am and back on at night.. I don't charge for normal but I think this is over use. I may have to start charging

Oh, CS, that is a bit much on top of all the other work you are doing. Especially when Bre isn't there to help all the time.

Had my first ride on Wendy-it is a match made in heaven! She is a perfect horse for me. Everybody that sees her is quite impressed. I'm going to walk the donkey around on the property bit today. Slept good last night, but I'm still quite tired-this has been a very busy month!

Oowee....I was so productive this rainy Saturday!!!

I actually cleaned my house...down to scrubbing floors! . Loads and loads of laundry, folding, cleaning out fridge...I'm famous for leaving 'experiments' in there.....baked two banana breads and made homemade meatballs! Yum!!!

And...I even got a bit of a nap,

Koolio, I take it your year so far is going well, glad to hear I'm not the only one who stays later so they don't take work home. Our jobs are never done...sometimes I just leave...because of sanity reasons. That Jurassic park thing sounds super fun!! Enjoy!!

Tomorrow is mom and i's ride!! Wish us luck. She hasn't ridden in a very long time!! Hope everyone behaves!! Rainn likes to book it home. Apparently her former owners allowed her to run home. I actually enjoy a little prancing from her...hope mom is ok with it. d

Here's Jay wanting a snack. He knows where I store the ' cookies'. Hahaha
