    Welcome ALU

    Maturity not a problem here, I'm still 19 but my license says 51.

    HP my wife bought me my first horse @ 42, it was 17.3, I am 6'2".
    It was like navigating a dump truck through the woods.
    I now ride ride a small gaited horse that can scramble all day.

    Welcome Alegup. I agree that maturity is in the eye of the beholder. I behold nothing that resembles it and continue to grease my hands so that I cannot.

    I am Rick and glad to see you here in our cozy little corner of the site. Please jump in with both feet, but be sure to hold your breathe for the first couple of seconds just incase one of the horses decides to do an air raid....well, we will blame it on them anyways.... lol


    My wife applied for a job at a local daycare facility this morning and 30 minutes later they called her to ask her if she can get her background check and finger printing,$75, done today so she can start work on Monday. I tell you that God continues to bless my house with more grace than one family deserves. This will take a huge burden off of me and MIL where it comes to the new household bills. Hopefully the MIL will be able to look at retiring from work completely with her health getting the way it is.


    Stan, no offense, but that picture of you made me think of Freddie Crugar for some reason. Hopefully that will be the image in the minds of the people you deal with at work to scare them out of the bad choices.

    Before I leave for work: welcome ALegUp! I'm Terry (or TJ, or hey-you). Maturity is a relative term...my relatives claim to have it. Hmmm...

    Look! Look! Freddy didn't wear glasses.
    Ditch the glasses Stan.

I have the rope/weights(horse shoes)/little pulley thing that janice showed me how to make, but I want to attach that set-up to bridle & reins on something more "real" so I can visualize the action while on my exercise ball w/the thing in front (actually "make believe" is a better term for my head, takes the "grown up" pressure off the concept of visualization, & I can have more fun.
    TJ: The practice soft hands thing mentioned here is what still mystifies me.

    Barns.....this is my side of the barn.

    When my mom built this, horses were not intended...this section was actually designed to be her hay storage...but she offered me some space and we built two stalls.

    As you can see, they are open to the outside. I am able to open the stall doors and allow the horses to come and go as they please.

    The metal gate leads to the main barn, my feed area and tack.
