    Terry, glad you got to ride yesterday and just think...6 months ago you never would have been able to muck through all that mud and still have the stamina to get a lesson ride in. You are showing great improvements in stamina and drive. Congratulations!!!!!

    NikerMacker17, glad you were able to enjoy a ride with Rainn after a less than stellar day at work. Sounds like Rainn is really coming back into her own with the MSM treatment.

    Alex, glad you found transportation and can continue on with your way.

    Stan, you said that this was a picture of you. You surely weren't trying to pull our leg were you?

    Roaddy,

    Actually Rainn isn't on MSM...htat is what made her lose her hair!

    I don't know if its it being fly season over, the cool air, her shoes being off, or simply b/c she is being used that she is staying sound. I tend to think it's the latter....the last time I rode Jay, she banged the stall door as if she wanted to GO. She has NEVER done that before!!

    I'm not riding her much (unbuted that is) on hard roads....so that may help.

    Don't know, but it makes me happy that she is happy and usable!!

    That is right, you did say she was allergic to it. Don't know why I forgot that.

    I had an older couple insist on coming to look at Boo yesterday evening.
    I told them over the phone I truly didn't believe he was what they needed, but they wanted to look just to be sure.

    He did awesome on the ground with lead and halter, but soon as we saddled him and took him out of the pasture out of sight of the other horses he did not want to listen to cues, starting throwing his head and backing up. I explained to them he is seriously herd sour and that he needs someone with plenty of experience or a trainer and with them not having much funding I knew that wasn't an option. After a bit of fighting he slipped in some slick top and went down on his but and when I leaned forward for balance he threw his head back and caught me in top of forehead. He has never done that badly before, but I told them right then that I couldn't sell him to them and would be removing my ad from CL. I have talked to a couple of friends about contacting some of their trainer friends to see if any of them want him as a project for free. Then I would know he will get the bad habits corrected and be safe for someone. I have too many irons in the fire to be able to dedicate the time he requires.

    Oh, the forehead is going to bruise pretty good, but I figure he will have a bigger headache than I did as I'm constantly being told I am seriously hard headed like a steel plate.


    My youngest daughter is turning 13 on Halloween and we are having her B'day party Saturday evening from 4pm until. I talked to my ex son in laws father who has his own photography business(professional, not camera phone) and set up for him to take over the photos so we can focus on her and the activities. That and I want her to have a photo album full of the best possible pictures capturing her introduction to teen life.

    There will be horse rides, games like Square Volleyball, disc golf and hay rides then start the bonfire for smores, hotdog and marshmellow roast. I'm getting the tow behind grill from my credit union so it will be less tasking to cook all the hot dogs and hamburgers than on our regular grill.

    Here is a video of us working Jems on Saturday. Never mind the girls talking during filming. Lol This only the second time anyone has been on her back in 2 years. Give me your feedback on her during this, please.

    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.

    Hahaha Alex I LOVE that ride, we have it here. You would like our roller coaster it is the oldest wooden roller coast in North America and it is scary. No loops or nuthing but when you feel the wheels come off the track you are screaming lol.

    Glad you found a driver

    Playland's New Ride, ATMOSFEAR - YouTube

    Roller Coaster (and only a little bar holds you in)

    That last one looks fun, and the swings look awesome!

    I didn't like Hangtime at all, it was way too much time upside down.




    Well I have good news, I used my driver for the first time today. I was getting a bit worried but at exactly 3pm, she arrived, and then we were done a bit early so we were outside the office waiting for her, and I am busy thinking, I hope this lady I just met shows back up with my car. I checked my phone, she arrived at exactly 6.45, the time we arranged.

    It's so nice to have someone reliable, and she was great too. Really lively personality, and fun. She has horses, (she's a friend of my BM) so it was a fun chat the whole time.

    It's going to be expensive, at $50 twice a week - but at least I can keep my job.

    Incredible ride, Alex, & glad you have yours for your job!

    Thanks, Nicker, for thinking of me during mucking, lol! Your Rainn certainly seems to want to keep going.

    Rick, thank you so much for the encouragement, & Happy Birthday soon to your daughter; a 13 y/o Scorpio female! I have to giggle, since a Scorpio myself. Yesterday was hard, w/all the mud, but dang, you're right; I couldn't have done that 6 mos ago...& then ride! My wiped-out feeling went totally away when I was on Tommy. Was just went I got home I collapsed. Next Monday is my birthday, Janice marked it on her calender, said she'd do "something special". LOL, I asked for no mud! Won't be due for a lesson, so guess I'll go muck along & be around the horses...but hope there's a surprise in there somewhere (the little girl inside "says"!)

    Janice did remind me yesterday of how far I've come: from sitting on Addie briefly in early May, trying to not puke if he moved a muscle, to moving Tommy out into a fast walk in the arena & riding out alone from the arena to the tack post. I have a tendency to forget my own accomplishments. Incremental as they are, I've done it. Thanks Rick, your comment provided a much needed "hug".

    Appreciate each & every one in this group. It means alot to check in here, talk, & read & respond where I can.
