You know... Anymore... Cooking is a mans thing for some reason... I can cook and I do 90% of the cooking, but I've noticed that men really take pride in being able to prepare a meal these days....

Foxhunter~ (re: the earlier flower post)

The first one is a pink buttercup.

The red ones are some sort of clover.

The dramatic pink one is actually a thistle .. dramatic little (big) flower!

There are soooo many ... I'll post a couple more.

Farmpony: when my Daddy retired, that was his main hobby!

Texas gal: I love the flowers. I would love to have a garden someday.

So this girl is making fun of Patsy at practice, because her head is still high

Sometimes, when I try to rate her, she raises it. She is 50% better than she

Was and does everything else I ask....

Should I look for a better horse, or keep working with her? She has so many

Quirks I am afraid what would happen to her ( and possibly the rider..) if she went to

The wrong place.....

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

When I was weeding about a week ago, I jumped when a Toad popped out of the dirt (I think I thought it was a snake). I jammed my finger so bad I wanted to cry... I rocked back and forth for a minute and then that night it swelled up so bad I couldn't move it. It never changed colors, and now most of the swelling is gone but I can't bend it all the way and it constantly aches, if I touch something w/ it, it hurts... Do you think I cracked it? Husband says it's too late to get it looked at if I did break it because all they will do is immobilize it and that won't work for me. So I figure I'll let it heal on it's own... I just wonder if I cracked it though? It's crooked... at the knuckle area....

I don't know what they do for a broken finger, I never went to the doctor when the TB's broke mine! It burns for about a year and then they ache after that..LOL

So beautiful! I think the yellow one may be coreopsis, and the purple may be phlox - we have both woodland phlox and creeping phlox here that grow wild here....

I think I cracked a bone in my thumb once and maybe even my wrist, or at least sprained the wrist... I'm really bad about not going to the doctor unless I really need to... I mean... sore bones, those are typically normal when you live on a "farm" hobby or otherwise...

My kid on the other hand, I'll drag him in for a booboo...

I know about the aching fingers! I've gotten to where I can't go out in the winter w/out gloves because my hands hurt so bad... :(

I sympathise! You wouldn't believe what happened to me last Aug.!! Had Star out on the lead rope in the silent afternoon so she could graze on some lush grass, and a rabbit scurried by her head which caused a sudden standing spook - the rope caught suddenly on my left ring finger, (yep, wedding rings and all) and took a second to realise it was broken! It all happened so fast, and Star was already back to grazing that quick. But I'm looking at my finger and seeing my rings disappearing around the swelling, and moving it back and forth I could tell it was broken! Good grief! Put Star back in pasture, managed to crush ice and with a kitchen towel around ice-sandwich baggy on my leg, drove myself the 25+ miles to the hospital (we live in a wilderness area, and husband works on remote lakes) -anyway, they cut my rings off (no pain meds yet) and "buddy taped" my pinky to the finger and was told to make appt. W/orthopaedic next day - well, up here they're the only office, so by the time I was seen, my finger healed-(I drink lots of milk and have good calcium) So then I had to have surgery, for crying out loud, and more buddy taping!! The break looks horrible on the x-ray, but by golly, do you know that I didn't miss a beat with feed/groom/mucking, etc? I even saddled and rode her 12 times before the surgery! The ligament was holding the bone just right, and in my favor, and I was in hardly any pain!!! Unbelievable!! Had the rings re-done, and all's well that ends well, thank the good Lord!! :)

P.S. When I got to emergency, the 1st Dr. Was trying to cut the rings with an older model (and quite dull I think!) ring cutting device, using a back and forth motion until an awesome nurse came in with a brand new state of the art powered ring cutter...is kind've comical when I think of it now - like something in a movie. No one offered anything for pain yet, and I finally said, "If you want to at least give me some Motrin that'd be great, because this really hurts!" "Oh, I'm so sorry!! You poor thing!!" I just replied, "You know, I've given natural childbirth twice, so I can probably handle just about anything"! Haha
