    Eole,

    Yes I feed the hay outside...well, I was feeding them in their stalls aNd opening the doors so they could go to pasture when they were done. Then I noticed Jay would come and kick Rainn out of her stall for her hay. She of course would go into his...a back and forth thing. So I decided to put out the hay outside. Yes, I read to make at least one more pile than horses, so that is generally what I do.

    BUT tonight, I noticed Rainn sifting through her hay, nibble, nibble, gum, gum, spit it out......OH NO....wondering now if the weightless isn't due to bad teeth!!! I JUST had the dang doc there!!!!

    I do recall her saying if a horse spits out wads of hay, they need floated...thing is, she eats grain fine, and DH was there feeding them apples tonight. She ate those fine. Thought?

    Speaking of.....here is a pic of DH feeding them apples. He's come a LONG way!!. He's a city guy learning to love and trust the horses!! gotta love'em for trying!!

    Enjoying a glass of wine now....kiddos were a bit monsterish this afternoon.....can't blame them, I wanted to be home too! Hahaha. Looking forward to a ride tomorrow.

    For your birthday Eole, I wish you many happy trails and time to enjoy horses.

    You are in good company, they only steal from the good ones. The rest accumulate carrots. One way or another.

    I slipped over to the 50+ thread to have a peek. I think they are a little to old and classy for me. Ill hang about on this thread, more my age group.

    Rick time to check the food intake and cut down on the steak. No donuts with the coffee and no cream. Even though nothing was found its time for a change but on the other hand it sounds like your friends wife may be planning to shorten your life span. Do you like to live on the edge.

    I don't know if they are "classy", they are for sure far less funny (entertaining) then the 40+.
    It's perhaps not due to the age

    Stan, I'm not really a coffee or donut person. I only drink coffee when the temps dip below 50F and I may have a custard filled Eclair every 2-3 months. My issue is more towards family stress with my kids...and prank calls. Lmbo


    I had a call last Sunday in reference to Boo and had set it up for them to come see him Monday night, but had to cancel due to trip to hospital. I have not heard from them since even sent a message Thursday asking if they were still interested with no response. Then Monday I had a message about Jems from a family who has an 18 yr old daughter who has been doing barrels and CC now she wants to get into buggys. They believed Jems would be a great candidate, but never heard back from them once I told them I was out of the hospital. Hoof pickers are driving me back to the hospital.

    Hope everyone has a great weekend as I will try to spend some time with mom, younguns and horses.

    No no no just don't put so many oysters in the steak, or is that just a New Zealand thing. I have cut down the number of oysters I stuff into the middle of my carpet bag. Its down from half a dozen to only one.

    Easy to say, hard to do, but manage the stress. Smile when answering back.

    I had a heart attack christmas 2011 **** near did me but 20 months later i'm still pumping, and expect to keep on going for another 15 years. I have to, I can't afford to kark it. I have to much work to do with Bugs and on that subject he has developed another behaviour. He presses his nose against ones body and then beginns to very very gently nibble at ones clothes. He is testing the waters in prep of making a bid for top dog status. However that position is not vacant and SWMBO has no intention of stepping aside.

    Hey everyone! Back from vacation. Had a blast but always good to get back home. I was crazy to leave for a week during "burr season". See pic below. OMG! Thank God for Cowboy Magic, leather gloves, and a patient horse.

    Afterwards we went for a great solo trail ride. A deer jumped out in front of us and Isabella spooked in place and I made her walk on without making a big issu out of it.

    It seems I missed way too much while I was gone so I am unable to respond personally to everyone but I will try to get a few in...

    Rick, glad to see you back and hear you are going to be just fine. Feel free to come here whenever you need to blow off some steam and de-stress!

    Eole, corgis are amazing dogs. They are just little clowns and ours keeps us entertained all the time!

    Stan, glad you bounced back from your heart attack in 2011! And glad you realized you are better off in this thread than in the over 50 one!
