    Rick, I just watched your Jems video; don't have the expertise to comment, but to my limited view she seemed very willing, but abit distracted.

    Hope your hard head heals soon from Boo. Ouch!!!

    Spent the evening on the tractor bush hogging and collecting fell limbs for the bonfire. Got the past part if the yard around the chicken coop done and all of pasture to the left of the barn then started on the right side. There is still alot of standing water in the lower corner from the rains last weekend so can't get all of it. Infact, the entire lower half of that pasture is too soft to run across as the tractor was sinking 4"-5" inches on the one pass below the burn pile.

    Have a meeting directly after work today then will hopefully get to the pastures on the other property. There are several fell limbs to collect over there and take to the bonfire for Saturday night. I told the owner that I would try to get around the yards above the pastures as well since they are letting me use the property for my horses for no charge.


    I enjoy working with the tractor almost as much as I enjoy saddle time.



    Terry, I know Janice will exceed your expectations with her surprise next visit and can't wait to read about your excitement.



    Alex, I hope you had a restful sleep last night without a slip of the splint.


    NikerMacker17, did you get a ride in last evening?

    Just wanted to drop in for a quick Hello! I'm still around just very busy with the new horses and school along with all my other duties.

    Roady! Stop with the accidents already well I guess the surgery doesn't qualify as an accident. Glad your back on your feet and wrestling with the horses.

    Glad to see the rest of you seem to be doing good. TJ keep hanging in there I know how you feel sort of, caring for these new horses is a full time job and it's taken me weeks to get use to it. My body is still trying to adjust. But on a side note my jeans are now comfortable again. Ha! Ha!

    Jems is looking good-I agree-she does seem a little bit distracted, but willing.
    Hunter-My mare also has the "cream" on her lips-so cute.
    Roaddy-sounds like it will be a great party-we have a little Kuboto-DH seems to have fun when working with it.
    AlexS-glad your driver is prompt-nice that you can talk horses w/her.
    NIcker-sorry to hear your day wasn't so wonderful,but horses can help to make it right.

    Talon-isn't it nice to see progress? I'm using a mounting block w/Wendy, and she is doing great w/it. I had a bad mounting accident a few years ago, so that is a scary moment for me.

    Stan-any rides coming up?

    Welcome to KennyT-most of us here are pretty long time horse addicts, so too late for us to be "saved"-LOL!

    We are having lovely weather right now & I am trying to get my tack conditioned so it will last longer-the dryness here is quite brutal. And I'm really seeing that I need a separate shed for the horse feed-the hay just gets everywhere-I had an open sided shed in CA-gee-do I miss that!

    Wednesday already! Where does the time go? I was doing laundry & house cleaning yesterday while DH was gone, got a lot done, but it's never-ending. The folks he was with fed him, so I didn't have to cook-Yay! The couple next-door will be over later, as he trailered their quads for them. Busy days!

    I was just awarded employee of the month. Which consists of a $100 prepaid Visa, maroon Polo T-shirt with company logo and camo baseball cap with company logo in hunter orange. They issued each employee a bumper sticker with a number on it to put on our vehicles. Each month they draw a sticker number and if we can show proof of the sticker on our vehicle then we are gain the reward


    We have the choice of color of shirt and all the hats are camo, but the lettering is a choice among hunter orange, black and tan.

    Nice Rick! $100 is always a welcome gift, hope that you can use it for something nice.

    TJT, glad that you are improving so much, and so quickly. Time and effort really counts for a lot.

    I did manage to sleep last night without pulling off my splint, also crashed out early, so spent the morning with Brad before he went to work, and I always appreciate time with him.

    What a nice surprise Rick! Prepaid Visa is a great gift...you aren't tied to a specific store. And Tractor Supply takes Visa! :)

    Thankyou for sharing. My feelings are not dented, my pride is still intact. I can still smile and won't lose any sleep.

    You are slipping

    Yes you have it right I am a tad older than the kid on the saddle and better looking, frequently seen on the beach in goodfitting jeans and riding a horse That photo you have of me was taken a time back when on the range. I have changed a little, the six pac is now a keg.

    Morning all!!

    Didn't get a chance to get on last night.

    Congrats Roaddy!!! $100 bucks!! I can help you spend that pretty easy!!

    Nope, no rode since Monday. I think I posted about it....Rainn doing so well and kicking up a nice buck!,

    The weather has turned south....spitting snow as I let the dog out! hoping to get in the saddle this weekend.

    Was presented my award yesterday during a luncheon at the VFW! It was really nice.. I'm attaching a pic. My mom got to come, she's the one to the right.

    After the presentation, my super and the neighboring schools super approached me....the neighboring one was jokingly pushing my out of the way and handing me his card.....saying he wants to hire me!!. In seriousness, he would be interested in having me come present there...and my super invited him over to see what I do.. What a compliment! She made the comment that my room runs like music.....I was LOL inside, because she certainly didn't see Mondays mess!!! I'm going to send him a book...and see what happens....I would love to do more gigs. Glad to have my mom there too. She knows that super....she 'talked me up' quite a bit....made me REALLY interesting! Hahahaha. Go mom, Going to have to start paying her for PR!!

    I got the rest of the afternoon off, so quickly visited my dad. And then got to do what I love...but never get to do.....rent a movie and veg on the couch!!! Ahhhh, what a nice day.

    Once again, just wanted to say thanks for being a great group of people! Have a wonderful day!!
