    I live a life of danger I posted a joke

    This morning on the motorway,
    I looked over to my right and there was a
    Woman In a brand new VW Golf !!

    Doing 110kph

    With her face up next to her
    Rear view mirror

    Putting on her eyeliner!

    I looked away For a couple seconds

    And when I looked back she was
    Halfway over in my lane,
    Still working on that makeup.

    As a man, I don't scare easily..


    But she scared me so much
    I dropped
    My electric shaver, Which knocked
    The meat pieOut of my other hand.
    In all the confusion of trying

    To straighten out the car
    Using my knees against The steering wheel,
    It knocked My Mobile phone Away from my ear
    Which fell Into the coffee Between my legs,
    Which splashed, And burned "Big Jim and the Twins",

    Ruined the phone, Soaked my trousers,
    And disconnected an
    Important call

    Women Drivers!!

    Morning everyone!! Have popped in from time to time btw my 'horsing around' but always seem to fall asleep if I stop too long!!! I think I am a bit tired! we are running out of nice days, so I can't stop...

    Left work early for me on Friday and hopped a ride on Jay. It was a bit windy, and all the spooks came out. he did well tho.

    Saturday was dreary, but I did get a ride in on Rainn, before the rain. I had all these plans, but when I came home at noon.....you guessed it...I fell asleep! by then it was time to get cleaned up to go to a fall party.. We saw old friends. It was a great time.

    Sunday saw me up and out the door for a 7:00 rode with a friend. (It was still dark when I got there!). I rode her Belgien mare. Wow, I thought I had a lot under me with Jay....she was SOLID!! She was about 17.1 hands....I had to do a stretch Armstrong to get up there! we rode for about an hour. It was a great time, and a perfect way to start the day!!!

    Shopped, napped, and out the door to ride JayJay.. It was cool, but the sun felt good. He rode well. Rainn wasn't happy we left...which was the first time I ever heard her hitting the stall door!! I think she wanted to go. Lol. Getting used to getting out!

    Here is another photo of the fashion parade....my congress coat! So chilly, I just HAD to wear it!

    CS, how is Bre doing with her illness? Hope she is feeling better and can get back into her regular schedule.

    Terry, hope you get your room arranged for exercising and can get a good ride in this week.


    Stan, I tried reading your joke, but will have to wait til I get to work. Trying to read while on my way there and watching out for all the women drivers all over the lanes isn't working out so well.


    Ladona, that put a great big smile on my face this morning reading about your rejuvenating weekend. I hope your aunt and uncle are able to get your mom moved close to them as it will be good for her with them being close to her age for company. Figure they can relive old childhood memories of times past and enjoy activities together.


    NikerMacker17, the Belgian is beautiful and looks good under you. Sounds like you had an amazing weekend and I'm very happy for you.


    I am sitting here with a bitter sweet story of my own this morning. I have spoken about my lead mare, Jems, and the fact she was a brood mare from the age of 4 through beginning of last year at 11 before being given to my daughter. I ended up with her beginning of this year in poor condition and have gotten her back into healthy condition, but not broken. I actually posted her for sale due to a lack of time to work with her. WELL, Saturday afternoon I decided I was going to work a couple of hours with her again on ground work under saddle to see where I can get with her. I got a step stool and stood on it while leading her around me to get her used to seeing someone over her head as that has been the biggest issue about getting on her.

    My ex son in law(who I got the horse from after he couldn't afford to feed her) showed up to drop off some money owed and asked him to help me. Worked on getting him up in one stirrup then back down several times with her taking off into circles as I held the lunge line before finally getting her used to it where he could get fully into saddle. Worked with him on her going in circles both directions and just walking while letting him gently guide her by the bit which she really didn't like.

    I told him how jealous I was of seeing him on her as it has been my desire since I got her to get on her. I have video, but will have to wait til tonight to upload it to YT for your viewing pleasure. She is so beautiful under saddle and I can see her smoothness even when flustered. I will ride her before she leaves and am afraid that will do me in about selling her.


    I took a screen shot during the video to get this pic and will try to find a few more good ones to screen shot and upload.

    She is a pretty sight under saddle. She looks to be a good-sized horse. I like my mounts to be under 14.2, but DH has agreed to a gaited horse that he can ride, so I'll up the size to a bit over 15 hands as he is 6'2", but only about 185 #'s now. Gender & color don't matter to him-we want comfort & safety. I've got a couple of prospects in mind. Guess I better set up a pen & get a shelter on it pretty soon. And budget for a feed shed-the domino effect & more $$ outflow-at least I already have plenty of tack-LOL!

    Rick Bre is back at school today . No Mono or Strep so we are not sure what it was :/
    Vada is kenneled today and I feel so bad. I almost brought her to the shop with me :( . She is doing so Great. And I Plan on putting a bow on her on the 24th and giving hubby a card and saying happy birthday to him. I think he will be really happy with that present. He and Bre have faught over who she gets to sleep with :P

    Here is another pic of Jems.

    Glad she is well enough to get back to schooling. I think your DH will be very happy with Vada and will surely poke at Bre afterwards about where it sleeps then. Lol


    Ccg, she is 16H so she is larger than my normal ride of Trusty at 15.2.
    I hope you are able to get all the prep work done for another horse to come on. I am sure you are very excited about being able to see all of your tack out in order instead of boxed away.

    My friend dropped off the Kabota tractor and implements such as grappler bucket, standard bucket, bush hog and discs so get the property cleaned up. The pastures need a manicure as the weeds are getting tall,several fell limbs to go to the bonfire for Saturday's teen/ daughter's b'day party. Seeing as I'll have the tractor through Sunday, I will borrow a friend's utility trailer and do a hay ride for the kids as well as the horse rides, games and bonfire for the smores.

    Hi everyone. I hope things are going well.

    Alex I hope that you will be OK that can be very scary.

    Got out riding on Sat with new girl at barn. I am moving Scotty back to old barn next weekend as a new lady has taken over. I can't wait, where he is now takes wonderful care of him but the arena is 1/16 of the size of old barn and have to trailer out for trail rides. Will be so nice back to 7 mins from home and miles of trail at the end of the driveway. I tell you I love this horse more and more every time I see him.

    Here are a couple of shots of him. He is getting darker too with winter coming and really looks liver chestnut. See his little whipped cream lips lol
