Nickermaker: no it's not the Congress Champion, its a horse I bought in the US many years ago. He is still a good show horse here in Europe. I am still showing, although I had to slow down because of a few herniated discs. I always bought my best show horses in the US but never really lived there; my mare had to fly back and forth from Italy to US for the Congress.
Marylan Rider: I'll try to find some more pics in different disciplines. The one I posted is a Trail pattern in Kreuth, one of the best equestrian facilities in Europe. It's in Germany. These days my mare Wisely Victorious (full sister of Winning Wisely) is there with her trainer for the German QH Championships. For me it's too cold, I'll stay here in Italy! LOL

Roaddy....hahaha. I'm .... Too funny!

Speaking of doc said I had the longest femur he's ever seen. Of course since I live with my legs I don't realize it...but that pic of me sitting on the horses a$$ stool, I could see what he was saying! Yikes my femur is long! Lol

Quiet on here today, was everyone's day as busy as mine? Wow...we got zero accomplished. meeting both last night and tonight...ICK. Not much barn time.

MR, I actually DID look extensively at jewelry at congress.....but nothing I loved. I love jewelry tho, I tried my darndist to find a ring and bracelet....nothin'.

That's all I've got! Have a good night!

ZZ Top could not have been a better choice Roadyy.

I remember a song from their 1990 album called
"My Head's in Mississippi" seems I recall naked cowgirls floating across the ceiling
and something about an invisible 7-Eleven in the lyrics.
I'm just sayin!

I can't catch up, so will start again from here. I tried the other night, and still have pages and pages to read.

I am back, I hope Stan has been behaving, but I am prepared to give him a kick, as I think it's mostly unlikely. I exchanged a few emails with him in my time gone, so I know he's still as bad as he ever was.

Life kinda kicked me in the gut a bit while I was gone, I came off Lucas and apparently had a seizure, so they have taken my license, which is an issue, as I need to take the kids to the office. I talked to the program manager last week, she would rather help me with driving than lose me, but it's a task to get things set up.

And I broke my thumb. I took a one day respite to go to Brad's second cousin's wedding, I am closer friends with her than he is. The bathroom stall doors had a spring back action, and I'd been drinking, and got my hand in it. That night alcohol was a great pain killer, since then, it hurts. I know they won't do anything for it, other than splint it, and who has time to sit in an ER all day. It was bent and I heard it crunch, so I know it's broken, also the pain tells me that it's a break. So Brad put the splint on, and I almost vomited all over him, while at my inlaws. Not my best moment ever.

Kids were helpful last night, not so much tonight, they lost patience, so two of them went to bed at 7.30, while the other two helped me cook.

you know, I've been gone a month and I have to come back with some crappy drama. Sigh. I wish it were not this way.

We had a fantastic vacation, I met my best friend, who I met through this forum but had never met in real life. I talk to Sandy24U every day, and have for years, and she came to our free vaca rental. It was wonderful to be with her and her kiddos. And I loved every second of that. She's exactly the redneck I thought she would be, and I loved every minute of being with her on the beach in her cowboy boots.

At this moment, I am only posting here, because of you all. It's been a month, and I haven't mellowed that much, but I'd like to stay in contact with you all, and read how you are doing.

Alex I have no sympathy for those that injure themself while under the mind altering effect of the demon alcohol and feel just a tad envious. If I managed to have a drop to much and broke my thumb SWMBO would not have helped me. You are lucky Brad is such an understanding Man.
I am pulling your leg.

As for the sezure that needs looking into and take care of yourself.

There is not much going lately all I'm doing is pulling weeds from padocks which are only just supporting one horse let alone one for Roslyn. It is spring and we are not getting enough rain to boost the grass growth so the weeds are having a ball. I keep spraying and they keep on growing. The **** things seem to be resistant to the spray. I have to be mindfull of what I use as i don't want to kill the grass I have, or poison the earth any more than I am at present. I have chick weed and one of the milk weed varities. The milk weed I am hand weeding as it is toxic to animals and seems to regrow worse after spraying.

I have spent around $1000 on a ATV spray boom and chemicials just to get rid of the weeds. The effects of the summer droughts continues, and with the lack of rain at present it does not look to bright for the coming summer.

I would get a photo of me on hands and knees weeding but Bugs has not mastered the focusing of the camera yet.

I am missing a trek this weekend. I have not had the time or the weather to allow me to exercise Bugs and bring up his fitness, its been to windy over the past month so not much riding and his manners need a little tickle up.

Enough prattling and Nickers when does the fashon parade begin.

Rick I enjoyed the video

The weekend is rolling around again. A week older and no wiser. I hit 65 next month, retirement age. No I am not retiring. I have horses that need to be kept in the style they have become accustomed to and a lifestyle property that eats money.

Stay healthy everyone

NM17, I'm sorry you are having so many meetings keeping you away from the barn and hope that changes for a great riding weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed the video and as for the long femur, us good ole boys would not complain as our response to a woman with legs like yours is " she has legs that go all the way to her neck". Which is a compliment.

Alex, guess since you lost your license you will have to hitch hike everywhere you want to go. You should have the boys draw up some posters with thumb signs since you can't use your for the hitch hiking motion.

Hope you heal soon darling. I'm sure you are already in planning for testing to find out the cause of the seizure. I wish the best for you hun as I can imagine how hard that will make things for you and Brad.

MR, I remember the song you mentioned.

Stan, I have been looking at one of those boom spraying systems every time I stop by the Tractor Supply store. Haven't convinced myself to purchase one yet though. Hope you are able to get a handle on the weeds and some exercise on Bugs.

While feeding the horses last night I took a couple of photos of Little Man and his color getting dark again. It's getting cooler at night and I can see some of the winter coat starting to come in lightly on all of them.

Catching up on posts, lots & lots.

Alex, take care of the seizure thing, that's worrisome. Stan, you turn 65 next month? Dang, you're old. I'll only be 60 @ the end of October, lol!

Wish I had something to share, but really don't. Just working & pluggin' along. Have no "bling. Nicker, delighted w/yours!

(Thinkin': have a pic on my wall that I love; white horse, & just, for no reason in particular, want to know it's breed. I may take a pic of it & post it, for fun, so that someone may identify.)

Stan, I do hope your grass-thing works out. Sounds very hard to deal w/& worrisome.
