    We scored a perfect 10 at this one! The scary noodle carwash! She didn't even hesitate. Probably because the barn has one of their own and I take her through it all the time! Ironically, the BO's horse balked at it for some reason.

    Great pictures corgi-Thanks for sharing. Sorry you didn't place.

    Eole-I cooked my pork in my electric pressure cooker. If you go on have lots of slow cooker recipes & some variations for pulled pork. It's pretty easy-add some liquid, onions, garlic & whatever other seasonings you like, a little bit of vinegar (for the acid) is good & tenderizing, or you could use wine. Give it plenty of time on low, then shred & enjoy! I ;love having things I can just reheat so dinner is super-quick.

    I tried my English saddle on Wendy-great fit-I haven't been in this saddle for years-the only one I ever bought new-a Crosby- back when I was taking English riding lessons & doing some showing. (the '80's). We left the yard & visited a few neighbors-it was so fun w/just me & my sweet horse-I will definitely be doing more of this!

    Well I'm 51, at least I'm over 40, problem is "mature" people over 40.
    I didn't meet that requirement, ahh close enough.
    Just never admit your age.

    Maybe it is ok if you are one or the other. Mature or over 40. I qualify for one of those anyway.

    Judged trail rides are great.
    I am a judge at two a year.
    I don't ride in them, my horse could bust things up I reckon.

    We do the pool noodles, walk over bridge, open and close gate while mounted,
    Raincoat on and off, towel from one clothesline to another, drop carrots in bucket
    Is a real test to keep your horse away from them.
    Drag a jug full of rocks, back up through an "L" pattern, broom polo.
    Pour water and take it to a pitcher, keyhole, barrels, bareback W/T/C with a dollar under your thigh,
    Don't drop it! End it all with a 2.5 hour self guided ride, follow the orange ribbons.
    Ride fee will include lunch when all get back then ribbons for placing etc...

    I usually ride out to get the orange ribbons after the ride.

    I feel grounded now, almost frost at night this weekend.
    No camping for me, it might be time for just day rides.
    Time changes in another week, this is terrible.
    I turned on the furnace this week, I woke up to 62 degrees Thursday morning.

    I started building a new run-in for the horses today.
    Should have framing and sides up after tomorrow.
    Roof will have to be next weekend.

    Hello all: Sorry I had to vent.
    Welcome new people, congrats to our members receiving awards.
    I have enjoyed all the pictures everyone, thanks.

    Hi all,

    Corgi that looks super fun!! I want to look into that for Jay, I think he would do well!!

    Well....this is what I walked into this morning..... I called tot the horses, and wondered why Jay didn't come...he usually is there right away. As I peered around the corner he was pawing the ground, which was weird..,then I saw why...he was the fence!!!

    Thank gosh he just stood there. Luckily I had my phone in my back pocket so I could call mom to bring wire cutters. They came out and cut the wire around his leg...he didn't flinch. Luckily now external damage. Will try to ride tomorrow and see how he is. No swelling. Or anything, but he lost one suspecting he got one foot stuck then the he's going to be sore. Thank goodness the farrier is across the road, he came over and pulled all shoes.

    Spent the rest of the morning fixing fence...

    I really do feel fortunate...things could have been way worse. He is such a good boy...he just stood there.. And waited for me to rescue him. Afterwards he almost acted Indepted...he's usually so standoffish....I rubbed his neck and tried to make him feel safe.

    Funny mom had company tonight, an old friend. I instantly didn't like her. I went to jays stall to comb his mane and tail when she followed....he stayed in the back,of,the stall until,she left!!! Guess he got the same vibe!!

    The weather here stinks. Cold, 30-40*F and extremely windy. Kept the troops in tonight....they probably don't care, but makes me feel better since it's so windy. Monday thru Wednesday is to be back into,the 50s.....

    We have an outing planned for next Sunday weather permitting.....but wondering, will Jay be ok barefoot? I'll have to find out the terrain. I've been looking forward to this trail ride for months....

    Btw...being mature is usually boring...!! Happy birthday all, have fun!!

    Talk soon!

    Can you get the farrier to put his shoes back on before your ride?

    By the way, I am really glad he didn't go psycho while he was caught in the fence.
