NikerMacker17, I forgot to mention. You should make sure to put in for the horse trailer giveaway at the congress.

I believe it is Exiss trailers that is having the giveaway. Although it is a goose neck trailer. If you win it then I'll haul my bumper pull up there and just trade you even since I'm buying fuel for the trip. Haha

Ladona my best wishes heading your way and it will get better.

This is a thread of greatly experienced folks and letting it hang out so to speak, is acceptable by us. That is one of the reasons this thread has lasted so long we make allowences and have all experienced sad/hard times.

I'm posting another photo of mine. It does not have a dressing room but your husband could rig up a blanket from head to knees and you could change in that. I used to do that for SWMBO untill on one ocassion I dropped the blanket, accident it was, my arms got tired, or were we having a domestic. That does not matter because that was when the real fight began. I did not ride that day. And I learnt to cook.

Back to my float it is only a two horse rear loading but it has the side exit which the horses love Beats backing out. We also sleep in the float as the internals come out and it lockes up with the windows above eye level.
We would habve liked one with accommodation but can't justify it and it would require a new towing vehicle.

Now that the photos are working at my end there is no stopping me.

These are photos of Smokey, grandson and Roslyn. AKA SWMBO and the grass is still not growing very well, its still cold so you all still have some riding weather left.

Stan, you are cracking my mom and I up!!! love your float!! your grandson is SO cute!!!

Roaddy....on the drive here ( we made it to Columbus) I told mom I was throwing tons of chances into the pot for a trailer!! Not sure if the trade is quite even.....

We made it safe and sound.....the traffic was terrible...tells me I'm not getting out of our small town enough....

Ordered pizza in, some wine, and a lot of gabbing going on! . A fine end to a fine day!

Looking forward to congress. Does anyone need anything? I will be shopping......

Critter....that crazy BEEAch...sounds crazy!!! What are you doing about it???

Got a great ride in last night, as I knew I would be gone all weekend. (Although I have Monday off for Columbus Day!). So here is a pic...a bit of fall.

Ok, will be checking in....go ride everyone!!!

I just turned 60 and stated lessons a little over 6 months ago. You always have these little items on your wish list that usually are never taken down. Well, I now ride and it is the very best part of my week. I have my posting down and my two- point is almost there as well, while getting a nice rhythm over the ground poles.
I always arrive early and stay late just to muck & clean. I simply like being around the horses. It is hard to describe, but a void has been filled that lithium was unable to. :)

So very cool

Welcome bkylem-you are making good progress in your lessons. We get the horse connection-I've owned some since I was teen-ager-for me they are like potatoe chips-can't have just one! LOL!

LaDonna- I am so very sorry for your loss of your father. I lost mine when I was a teen-ager-it really impacted my life. I'm so glad we have this place to come to to let it all out. I've been on ebay..I have a new breast collar coming, some new riding pants, a very cool Western bit, a padlock for my container, and probably some more things I'll be buying tomorrow. Boots, regular & winter,& something other than tennis shoes for going out & cleaning corrals in the winter-I want something that doesn't "catch" all the mud, gravel, etc., as I don't want to spend my life cleaning floors-it's not as rewarding as cleaning corrals-or maybe that's just me-haha.

Nicker-have fun at the show!

CS-It's pretty scary when the crazies start coming after you! Hope things settle down soon for you.

Stan-Bugs is certainly a character & I hope your drought is over soon-maybe we should all do a rain dance again?

This week sure flew by! Now if the body would "lighten" as easily as the checking account does! Yikes! That stuff melts away fast!

Have a great W/E, everyone!

Lori: let me come over & smack that woman around..just a little bit...hope you get her to go away. Have dealt w/psychos myself; eventually..they usually go away. Keep her @ bay, as I'm sure you will.

Nicker, you GO girl!! (pretty pic!)

Geez, Stan, glad you learned to cook..! & that's a pretty trailer/float..(& I do like this side-door thing. I doubt if I'll ever be in the place for that, but if miracles happen, I'll keep this side-door thing in mind). &, COOL pics!!

Wow, welcome bkylem!! Glad you've come here, please come back. I turn 60 soon. Some things are not to be given up on, huh?!

Ladona, hope you're getting some sleep & comfort....

CCG, yup, lightening is good. Let's all go for the light..ah doo believe it's it horses' eyes.............& yay on the shopping! That sounds like good fun & good stuff.

Luv you guys. You'll likely hear from me on Horse Monday.

I remember a conversation my mother was having with one of her girlfriends when the girlfriend commented on how well behaved I was. She commented that I was one in a million. Mum, she responded with no he's not he was won in a raffel. That has stayed with me, explains alot
