    I went an watched a horse games day just to see if I would be interested in joining the club for the social side they needed some young blood. And no I left Bugs behind last thing I needed was to fall off infront of a croud.

    It was all light hearted fun and I can see how both rider and horse would benefit. While there I spoted an old cabin just on the edge of the trees and this thought came to mind see if you can get the answer.


    There is a cabin in the woods, and inside the cabin is a man sitting in a seat, dead.

    He did not die buy the hand of another so not a murder, or self inflicted.

    A cabin in the woods and inside the cabin is a man in a seat dead. How did he die. Have a crack at getting the answer if you have not already worked it out. You can ask yes or no questions.

    'K Stan, will try this: my first thought is: died of cardiac arrest or CO2 poisoning. Am sure there's a joke here..

    Nicker, am very glad your horse didn't get hut, & very late in answering your question: my BD is Monday 10/28.

    Just have checked in, & 3 pgs to check; good to see the input, read it all.

    Stan, I'm missing the trick question, as an emt just thinkin' DOA....hmmm..

    I am looking for people to ride with, also. My one "horsey" neighbor is only available sporadic W/E's & I'm not really fond of her young horse that she likes to pony on our rides.--This young mare will RUN backwards as fast as she can then double barrel any horse she can get to. She has kicked out at both mares & geldings & none were really on her heels or all that close. Being a QH, she had a pretty powerful back end! My mare spun out of reach on our last ride, but she did connect w/my face, so my world went blank for a bit & my neighbor didn't think my startled scream was necessary! I sure do miss my riding partner of 12 years! We were so attuned to each other.

    I finally got my height/weight tape together w/paper & pencil~~ Wendy is 14.3 & weighs 865 pounds! I still have to do Millie (the donkey), she was out grazing for the afternoon, so I'll get her sometime today. I wore my new riding pants yesterday-so comfortable! I hated taking them off! My tack package came today-but I didn't get the message & it didn't fit in the post box, so now I have to wait until Monday!

    Hoping to ride again later today. Our weather is pretty nice right now.

    I want to erect another pen across the driveway-we have some fencing, but need to make a roof-I'd really like to get a gaited horse & I'd like to have a pen ready or, at least nearly so. And good horses can be found for a reasonable cost right now. But I won't drive more than 5 hours away this time & closer is better!

    OK Stan:
    He fell off his horse on game day, broke his neck, other riders placed him in the cabin?
    The real question here is with the poor economy, what did the other riders get in $$$ for the horse that dumped him?

    OK and keep trying the answer is coming

    No health issue
    No basement
    No door falling on him or in a hole. I saw both those movies. Jack does a good job as did the other actor whos name has escaped me.
    Was not kicked by a horse

    A man, in a cabin in the woods, sitting in a seat, dead. How did he die?

    Think outside the square, there is two clues in the discription.

    Are we all having riding issues of some sort and looking for new riding partners or friends.
    I have started to look outside of the type of riding or hanging on for dear life I do. So a ranch horse club who do treks but also games and cattle work, barrel racing and so on.

    I think the games and some cattle work would be good for Bugs giving him something to think about, and also greatly improve my riding from hanging on for dear life, to hanging on tighter. Not sure if I can get the body supple enough. Might try a palaties exercise (or how ever it is spelt) to loosen up and strengthen up, only problem I see is it is all women at the classes, not sure I could remain focused.

    I had the same problem when a young man around 19. I took myself off and had ballroom dancing lessons. They put me with a young but older than me, short, well endowered young women.

    Every time she spoke I would look down when answering and then lose concentration and stand on her toes. They realised the issue I was having and changed teacher, the new one was like my grandmother. I learnt to dance then, and how to dance without looking at my feet.

    Back to the horses I have a number of treks coming up over the next two months but not the drive to get out and train. Not only does the horse need to get fit but so do I.

    Rick the weeds are still causing issues and the grass has stopped growing, not enough rain, it looks like its going to be another very dry summer so still only one horse at home. No meaningfull rain for the past two weeks and the ground is dry. We badly need a week of it. Time to start the rain dance again.

    That's enough bleeting for now, time to spend time with the horse and get some manners back, his not mine

    Cheers all

    Stan, It's Pilates! I started doing classes this fall, and it's all women in tights and fitting sport shirts. Only one man, 63, overweigth and... flexible like a 2X4.
    And I found the answer to your riddle. OK, I cheated and found it on the web. So I'm not telling...

    NM: your horse demonstrated amazing cool and trust in you. Glad he's un-hurt, scary incident.
    TJ: happy birthday for tomorrow. Hope you have a super day and let us know what Janice had planned for you.
    CCG: horses are like potato chips, can't have just one, right? Wendy seems like such a good match with you. Did you ride gaited horses before?
    Corgi, great pictures, look like fun to me!

    Our hay is so-so this year and Eole started coughing. He's always the most sensitive to dust. So we are back to soaking hay. More chores... At least we are organized with a tub soaking 3 small bales at a time: it fills up and empties (with a pump) automatically on timers. Yesterday's snow is almost all melted so I'll go out and finish cleaning the flower beds and raking fallen leaves. It really feels like winter is around the corner.

    Well since Jame Gumb AKA "Buffalo Bill" and Mr. Torrance were not there!

    Is this the cabin???

    Run-In construction is moving along.
    I hate building structures on ground that is not somewhat level.

    Hurricane season is about at an end, this is good, the east coast has missed any activity for the most part.
    Irene hurt me in 2011 to the tune of about 160K, God bless the insurance policy.
    It rained indoors as hard as it rained outdoors.
    There were so many holes in the roof I tarped the whole structure.

    I hope some of us got in ride time this weekend, I have to catch up at home before it gets cold.
    Instead of all the work I should have done during the summer, I went riding.
