Hunter, hahaha, glad you like it! I looked online, they have horse ones too! (Not that we use a curtain here, but I was curious)

You can find them at Actually you can get just about anything from there. I bought my god daughters chinchilla t-shirts from there,

It has turned COLD! COLD! COLD! Yesterday at this time it was 40, now it's 17*. Brrrr and bah humbug! Only good thing, sun is shining....but I'm back to wearing my snow pants.

Roaddy, wow! You got a ton done, just really beautiful property!

Ladona sorry to hear about your friend
Rick cyberspace I know it well I have a cracked screen on my laptop and its going to be hard to fix. An HP laptop 5 yrs old hard to get body parts.

Nickers, He is going to be scared but as time goes by his confidence will grow. I now go hunting on my own which requires me to walk for miles in the bush and it is not flat country so I feel the effort required, but on the other hand as my fitness improves so does the pressure come off my heart, I carry my phone and have to buy a GPS with a personal locator in it just in case.

It has been two years on 23 Dec from my first attack which went on daily for around 6 days and not another murmer since. I will be around for another 20 years much to the displeasure of SWMBO A friend of mine was an avid diver and he got himself caught in a cave running out of air. What kept him fighting and saved him from drowning was. He was not going to allow his exwife get his half. Funny what keeps you going in adverse conditions. Get DH, and what is his name?, focused on a future that he wants. Its something to get of bed for.

Cheers all
I'm on holiday fixing vehicles great way to spend a break.

As beautiful as the ladies are in this group and one of you wonder how to convince your man to come to the other side of the room then the other side of the house is as simple as releasing thread. No straight man could stay in bed with that vision. Ner a broke leg, back or spirit would stop a straight guy from biting the floor to get enough grip to pull himself across the room.

The results are in

My MRI on Friday shows a torn meniscus and bakers cyst. I have an appointment for a consult with a surgical specialist on Jan. 21. I can still ride, it's walking that gets to me! For now, lose weight, a little pre therapy and lots of positive attitude.

We also got the path results from MIL breast cancer surgery from Dec. 23. They didn't get it all. They have to go back in. She's not happy about that but remaining calm and trying to take it in stride.

Corgi- So sorry about your friend. Prayers for her and you!

Eoli- Hmm pretty sure I butchered that spelling! Anyways, Tommy is part Halflinger part quarter horse, all fun! He has short little pony strides, but not uncomfortable.

Here's hoping the New Year brings health and happiness for us all.

HP, sorry to hear they didn't get it all and have to do it again for MIL. I hope the outcome for both of you is full recovery and back to doing the things you enjoyed before.

Hello everyone...
Happy Place, that foot pain sounds awful, hope sx fixes it up good. Glad you can ride, even if tough getting there. Rick, what a huge amount of work, but the property looks GREAT. Oh, & my desktop comp (no, have no laptop) is a HP Pavillion P6000. I does just fine for me, so can't complain.

In answer to your question, Nicker, a bit ago: there's ten horses (used to be eighteen). The Sunday cleaner hasn't been able to come out the last 3 Sundays. 1st Sunday her car battery died (related to that one!), & last 2 Sundays (inc yesterday) she's been @ the hospital as her newborn granddaughter is not doing well @ all. That rips my heart out. Send many prayers (sorry, can't remember the lady's name, meant her only once, briefly, but God will know who you mean).

Anyway Nicker: 10 horses, so Monday is 2 days each worth of poo. These are run-ins & pens, so don't have the bedding to do like you have to in your stables. But, yes a lot of work. (Had 2 or 3 of those when there was 18, horses poo a lot in one day alone...)

That's what I did today, 10 horses x 2 days poo. Janice helped (as she did last week) w/her four horses, by raking up & helping me scoop into the 'barrow. Oh, the trip to the manure pile isn't all that close, either, lol! (& had to laugh @ Nicler's pic of Jay on that pile..imagine one way, way, way bigger & taller).

No lesson today. I'm still sick, but didn't want to not go today, so "mucked" thru it. Janice wasn't feeling well either. We discussed the ground work/body language idea, but by the end of clean-up I agreed that it wasn't a good day for it, as the horse would've zoomed in on my lack of attention & physical level of not-being there. It's all good & ok, is what is. I got my horse-time just being around them, & gave Tommy much extra attention. Janice told me he's mopey because his owner hasn't been able to come out the last 2 Saturdays (Tommy's a very emotional guy). She said this past Sat she found him, after turning everyone out to pasture, standing @ his gate to his pen, w/his head on the gate. He didn't want to go be w/his friends, he wanted to just go to his "room" & feel sad. Poor baby!! I hugged & scratched & petted & made over him. We both knew it wasn't the same as Mommy coming to see him, but hope he felt a little comforted.

I asked Janice about the punch: she said she gets hers from Colorado Saddlery, which is wholesale but sells retail & to tack stores. She said, basically, that sometimes a hammer comes in handy depending on what you need to do, & to not buy the cheap punches; a $20 one should be ok, anything else is worthless (btw, she said hers cost $70). Not much info on that, sorry, but I did remember to ask.

Want to post the Project process pics, but need to log off & back one again to do so....

So, just a bit later..
