    I am officially on vacation! I have a couple of dishes to cook up tomorrow, help the MIL with her dish and then I am a free bird! I'm hoping to get a little hunting in and of course spend some time with Rosie.

    I finally chose my saddle. It goes on sale on Monday. Abetta Endurance Saddle - Statelinetack.com. I wanted light, easy care and comfortable. This one fits the bill and the horse! I can't wait to get it. I feel like I am riding in a kids saddle when I use my friend's. She's a skinny rider type and I am ahem...more of a full adult size person!

    I'm off to bed. Night all!

    Happyplace good the hear you have a saddle on the way.

    Well its 5.45pm Wednesday and I want to work that moron I call Bugs and its raining. Just enough wind and rain to stuff it up and get him spooked.

    Not to be beaten, and to give my boy a lesson in who is the boss, out I went with a bucket and hard feed, the kind he loves.

    He troted down the paddock to me then started to walk around in a circle wanting the food and of course I was being mean. When he finally stop still I let him get his face into the food.

    After a couple of minutes I forced him to abandon the food and I stood over it forcing him away untill he got over his temper tantrum and then again I allowed him to eat, this time I walked away and left him to it.

    Not a big lesson but one that I hope he gets, and that is, I'm the stallion in this herd and control him. That is when SWMBO is not around

    Ladona, go and enjoy BPS with your hubby. You know there are things in there that you will like too. Glad you now know the trailer is safe for you and the horses as well as the vehicles on the road around it.

    NM17, enjoy your vacation. I'll be off til Monday after today.


    Stan, I do that with each of my horses and their feed every time I bring it in the stalls. I make them back up before I put it in the pale then make them back up if they come in before I give them the ok.

    Thanksgiving Day festivities...
    My 13 yr old daughter asked if we could do what she wants for turkey day. We agreed and she wants to volunteer at the mission to help feed the homeless at the shelter. Then we will come home and enjoy some family time.


    I'll likely not be back online before Monday so hope all have a very blessed holiday.

    Busy times-corgi-I love BPS-the one we went to in So. Cal, was almost like Disneyland! I'll bet you could find some great cold-weather socks, & I liked the spices & other cooking things they had. The fudge is just like D-lands, & we also saw some furniture that was really nice. I love having a permanent trailer license-that costs $ 129 here, but 1 less thing to have to remember. Can't wait to hear where you go first!

    Stan-is Bugs the only horse there now? We are going to have to do some fence work as the neighbor's horse came through it Sunday when she came to visit-instead of going through the gate like a lady. She took out 3 fence posts-the little witch!

    NM-have fun on your get-away!

    I will make the rolls today for tomorrow's dinner. We will leave around 10, in the morning, have a 2-hour drive, then about 3 hours there & back home. Hopefully we can stop in at the neighborhood party also, as the food is great there & we might be hungry again.

    Rick-Happy T-day,and hope everything goes smoothly in your new house!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all. And let's hope our clothes still fit come January-I'm still trying to lose from the travels I did in Sept.-Yikes!

    Morning all! Got the call about a half hour ago......school cancelled for the day! Never saw that coming. We rarely cancel! But.....YEEHAA!

    I am packed, so I can enjoy relaxing for a bit. Will either venture out back with the dog and camera....or do I venture over and try to ride.....

    I think I'll stay here. My friend just called and we made tentative plans to ride this weekend. This snow is wet, May ball up on their feet anyway...and be a wasted trip.

    Have to share....did my gig yesterday and my friend who asked me to speak asked if I had my resume in there....yes I do....good she said, cause she's ready to be done and wants to recommend ME for her slot!!!!! I've always wanted an adjunct position...at least give it a shot! We will see what transpires over the next month or so...... it was an honor for her to mention this!

    Roaddy, I do the same with my guys....make them back up and put their ears up before I give the grain. Jay will sometimes put his ears back...I think he wants it NOW, but I make him wait until he pricks them up....then he devours it. he acts like he's never eaten before!

    Happy thanksgiving everyone and safe travels! Enjoy the time with you loved ones!

    I recently bought an Abetta endurance saddle and I am very pleased with it.

    Ccg, have a safe and wonderful trip.

    NM17, that is a post card picture if ever there was one. Enjoy your holiday darlin. See you on the other side.

    Celeste, do you think the Abetta endurance saddle is geared more for a woman's seat or do you of many guys who find it a good seat for them too? I am thinking sometime next year of going that route,endurance saddle that is.

    It should be fine for you. It sits about like a normal western saddle. There is no horn and it is light weight. I wanted to buy one of those fancy, high dollar endurance saddles, but I couldn't justify spending the money. I can buy this saddle and quite a few more like it for the price of a better one. It looks like it will hold up very well. Since it is synthetic, I don't have to worry about if I get caught in the rain either.

    I can't ride in those little saddles that are made for micro-ladies anyway. I got the 17 inch seat.

    I had to edit out the www part. The links seem to be filtered out on this site.

    HP, hope to hear more positive reviews from you on this saddle just like Celeste's. Hope you vacation is a great one.

    Celeste, thanks and I will keep that in mind.
