We're finally warming a bit. Tried to keep up w/corral cleaning, but some of it is Frozen to the Ground! Dh might have a cold coming on-w/his asthma that makes him quite sick usually. Hope we can nip it in the bud, cause when he doesn't feel good it might as well be the world coming to an end. At least he doesn't have to go out & chop wood this year, but we need to get another pallet of pellets and TSC has them much cheaper than where we got out first pallet.

NM-hang in there and know that more prayers are coming your way.

TJ- did you get that bridle yet? Or did I miss that? Will more horses be coming in soon?

Rick-Hope the fence building goes well-we have to redo the front fence-it is quite rickety-John did one part already, but the rest is really just a hint of where a fence should be-haha. We have a couple of places being held up w/angled posts.

Christmas is coming so fast! I need to get some baking done.

Ccg, I got a text from Miss Terry last evening saying she got them. I will let her fill everyone in on the rest when she has time. This is all for her excitement and excited she is. Hehehe

Talked with the friend of mine that always loans me his 32 hp Kubota tractor and he is going to bring it with the grapler bucket, standard bucket, bush hog and box blade out Sunday after church lunch. Drop it off for a couple of weeks so I can try to clear out as much of the trees to increase the area for pasture. I will go ahead and put up the temp fence to get the horses over here, but work hard on clearing the property to make the final fencing area larger. Will be late and cold work over the next two weeks.

Oh, btw, anyone interested in a continuous swimming pool? A friend of the guy we are buying the house from left one on the back of the property and we are just looking to get rid of it. It is about twice the size of a large hot tub and twice as deep. Supposedly it jets water from one end to the other so you swim in place. You pay shipping and you can have it. The hoses are still attached, but you would need to buy a pump for it unless it will take a normal in ground pool pump. In that case there is an extra one for the in ground pool and I'll send it with it.

I'll get pics this evening.

Rick, I may know someone that is interested. He is a friend of a friend that has MS and has been trying to raise money for one of those. He hasn't raised enough money to buy one but has enough for shipping and installation. Let me check on it.

Sounds good to me. I will get m wife to go back there and snap a couple of pics to load of for you to show. It will need some cleaning as it has been out there for a while, but by appearance looks to be in very good shape.

I would say the thing is about 6' wide, 12' long and maybe 5' deep with blue interior.

Good morning, everyone! Trying to put myself together for work today, but wanted to pop in. Haven't been able to post much lately w/work & whatever, but have been reading.

Nicker, so relieved to here that your husband is on the mend!

Yes, CCG & All: the headstall & reins arrived yesterday! No, I didn't wait for Christmas Morning to rip open the package, but DID wait till I got home from work & changed my clothes, tee hee. It's a beautiful set-up: the headstall is butternut color & the reins are a pretty sand color. I stayed up late rubbing saddle soap into all of it & bending things around to soften up the leather. Can't wait to take it to Janice on Monday for "show & tell"! Yup, exciting & excited, to say the least! Now I have my work cut out for me for practice & practical application....

Have to go get in the shower now. Hope everyone has their Christmas plans together & all goes well w/all. (Rick might be relieved that I won't be bending his ear via text, so he can get some work done, lol!...good luck w/all that clearing & fencing...)

Later! Love to all.

I wore my barn coat into work today (casual, no students!). It's so cold that I put my coat over may lap to warm up. I just realized that it smells so much like horse. I love that smell! Sorry to all my co workers!!!

I didn't realize I had ordered two different color pieces there,Tj. I apologize for that. I should have paid more attention to that when I ordered them. Hope they aren't too contrasting in color.

HP, everything jacket or blue denim shirts I own have that smell on them and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Oh no, Rick the colors are perfect, very complementary! It's all perfect, & speaking of Perfect, I'm looking forward to what unfolds between use @ home for practice & w/use for Tommy.

CCG, forgot your other question: as far as I know, the horses @ Janice's still number @ 10. That will be an unfolding of events too, to see what new horses come into the fold.

Is it Monday yet? (or Sunday anyway, have a lot I need to get done).

Saterday here in NZ and I survived another week at work don't know how as I lost it with the manager and resorted to walking away uttering what can not be printed. One more week to go then its a break and time to regroup. Never know I might be able to salvage whats left of the marraige.

Nickers great news so far and sending good thoughts your way. Does you husband ride if so he will have more zest for it after his operation and if not then he may well develop an interest.

After I had the heat attack I spent a lot of time with Stella, she did help me by getting me moving and exercising and focused. No riding for three months but that was only because the others would not allow me to tag along.

I intend to get Bugs back in shape when on holiday and the second week in January I'm off deer hunting with my son. Its what we call a meat hunt. I have the belief if one is going to bring down an animal it had better be for one of two reasons to put it out of its pain or for food.

I remember a time when I used to take every one surf casting and one of the boys started to break open oysters on the rocks. He was not so keen after I made him eat it and he got the message if you kill it, eat it, don't waste it. I do make an exception on rodents and possums On that note the local farmer is getting his pasture knocked around by wild pigs coming out of the forest so I'm going to have a go at getting a couple of them for the BBQ and freezer.

I'm in the lounge watching Bugs comminicate with the sheep he needs the company but would rather them be in a different paddock from himself. He looks to me as if he has grown taller which he should not have or perhaps that is me getting older and shrinking.

Cheers all
Only 11 more sleeps untill that jolly fat man in the red suit tries to get down the chiminy, he will need to lose some weight because I have a box of beer to share with him. Not to mention the ham on the bone we can enjoy.

Rick good luck with the changes, and getting the property ready for your horses.

Stan, if Santa makes it to your place, would you please ask him to put me back on his nice list? I can't imagine how he always seems to get me on his naughty list...
