He is handsome. Glad you are able to get back to the barn you want to be at with all the accessibility for riding.

Saw some contact with Alex via Book of Faces, but haven't seen her on either of the horse sites we both frequent. Hope everything is good with her. There are several that have been busy since school season started and not posting much.

Howdy All, Im 47 and have been around horses off and on all my life( and one mean old mule my Pappy had). I try to warn folks off all the time, horses are more additive then crack. LOL. I am currently working with a little black and white TWH named Patriots Delight. She has me wrapped around her little hoof. Always had and rode quarter horses until a few years ago. I broke my pelvis and decided I deserved (had to have) a smoother ride. Im new here in the form and sure have enjoyed it so far.
Looking forward to talking to you good folks more.

Hi you guys! Rick, that Jems is so pretty, I love the curve in her neck. I don't have time to respond to the 2 pgs I just read, but..know I read it. (welcome Kenny).

Exhausted from previous work week, but finally got to my Horse Monday. Have a song, re the 1st part, to the tune of "Amazing Grace": "Amazing Mud, how squish the sound, as I just muck along!. How dear my mud boots did appear, so glad I had them on.." LOL. Yup, lotsa mud, heavy 'barrows loads. My back was tweaked, so not much fun there, but got thru it. For some reason I got really dizzy during last 3 pens. Janice noticed my being pale, & had be rest abit w/some tea. It helped.

Then groomed & tacked up Tommy, went to the round pen. Had just got on when he decided to walk OVER the mounting block (maybe 'cuz Janice on other side) so he got his feet scrambled. I just leaned forward (a fear response I guess) but kept a light rein & told him "you're ok Tommy, we're ok") so then he just backed out of his little mess & looked @ the block like it had grown another head. Kinda funny. Janice said another horse would've exploded, but he just needed to disentangle out of his confusion (& she said I did GOOD). Tommy is solid, just what I need right now, maybe for a long time.

Got him into a walk in the round pen, but asked Janice if we could go to the arena (his stride is so long, that when I've barely begun to feel it, he has to turn). So...we did. Got him into a good, big, fast walk, practiced turns (esp away from Janice, as he wanted to "got to Mom"). It was chilly this morning, so he was feeling good; too much of a walk-urge put him into a trot, but I stopped it..not from fear (felt good to feel it for 2-3 seconds) but because I don't have the rein/leg thing under my belt quite yet.

Then I took him back to the post, unsaddled (I think my dismount was a little less slithery this time), groomed him & took him home. He got a cookie (which I now stash under my hat).

Helped Janice let everyone out for turn-out graze & play (& to get out of their muddy pens, for their feet). Then came home. Have to iron uniforms, get ready for work tomorrow. That is my Horse Monday for this time!

Welcome KennyT!

Am still around and kicking. Took the kids to an amusement park yesterday, and did a lot of screaming at the haunted attractions. They had a haunted corn maze with people jumping out of the corn walls - yea, I was screaming my head off. :)

And I did a whole lot of screaming, praying, and begging them to end the ride and let me off - on this one.

And today, I secured myself a driver twice a week to take me to the office with the kids. It's going to cost $100 a week, so I have some serious budget adjustments to make. But at least my job is now secure.

Good evening everyone, for once I have the energy to!type something out at night. Finally got to read through everything too!!

Corgi, so glad to see you home and having a great time riding, that show looks fun!! hope all works out with your mom.

Hunter,your horse is a beauty!! Wow! What is he...a Morgan? I forget.

Roaddy, Jems is NICE! The bigger the better if you ask me!!

Welcome Kenny!! We need pics!!

TJ happy to hear you got to ride today. As I cleaned stalls tonight I was thinking of you and wondering.

Koolio, those antelope are awesome!!!

Was nice again today...around 60 degrees, and the rest of the weeks is calling for a s**t sandwich weather wise....so I decided to pull Rainn out of the pasture tonight. I like riding her in my moms back fields. It allows Maggie to run along side. Rainn has really been riding well...not a gimpy stride.. We actually rode for nearly 45 minutes and kicked up a beautiful buck. Looked to be a 4 point. Lots of prints and scrapes back there!!

Today at work...was just that...work.....not good behavior wise, so I needed to time out there.

That's about it on my end. Keep the pics coming....i love them!!!

Good night!

Thanks for all your replies about the saddle on CL. It's good to know those stress lines can be minimized with some elbow grease! I will download the angles so I can check them out next time I get to the barn. The mare I ride is really mutton withered. I tried a Circle Y with a wide tree and it fit her really well.

This is a Tucker endurance wide tree full bars and no, the cowboy is not me I'm a tad older and better looking.
My wife rides a Fabtron saddle made for women. Wide tree full bars and they are very reasonable in price. It says something when even after the $ conversion from NZ funny money to US$ it was still cheaper to buy made in the USA and the saddles I have are made in the US I am a firm beliver in supporting home groan products as it keeps us employed but a good buy is a good buy.
