    Morning all.

    No baby goats...thank goodness I didn't drag my sorry self out there!! mom slept out there in her sleeping bag! The barn that is! Apparently the cats slept with her to keep her warm! Hahaha

    There's a wind chill advisory coming soon stating we may have the coldest wind chill temps on record! r you Canadians sending down your arctic air? Yowza!

    The sky is bright and beautiful again this morning. Still hanging around 8*.

    My dad, his DW, and my oldest sis and bro are all meeting for a late lunch. I'm not going.....I had to make a decision.....saddle time which I would thoroughly enjoy....or spending time with certain people who really aggravate me.....I'm choosing the saddle time! I can see dad anytime. I'll see sis Friday. And my bro....I offered to meet him many times while we were in the hospital, and he made excuses....so.....SEE YA! Hahaha. I sound like a witch don't I? Nah, just tired of doing what everyone else wants when they never bend for me!

    Roaddy...I'm sorry to say. I'm not feeling the whole cardboard booty thingies....hahaha. Also congrats on the DW getting the job! What about your daughter, is she going to public school or will DW still homeschool? I have my early childhood degree, and seriously considered opening my own daycare/preschool when I first graduated. I did work in a toddler room for a while....mYbe why I don't have kids of my own! yikes!

    Now, I would love to open my own school that involves horses. Anyone want to help?

    Get into those saddles everyone!

    Nicker I know people who use Vaseline and they say it works wonders and have never had any issues. The barn manager used some on Scotty when we had our wee snowfall. The one side fell out as soon as I took him out of the paddock the other one I had to pour warm water on as it was a block of ice.

I had lost my 30 year old MFT earlier that summer (after 20 years together) and wasn't sure I would be ready for another guy for awhile. But, things happen for a reason and I'm pretty lucky they did. He's such a great horse!

    So, I'm primarily a trail rider. Used to do CTR with my other gelding and my new boy can go for hours through all sorts of terrain. Am thinking about looking at some local rides for him this year. Also, have decided to learn a new discipline after all these years so just started taking dressage lessons with a local trainer. That's going to be a whole new adventure this year! Oh, and kind of a workout...LOL!

    Again thanks! Looking forward to meeting you all!

    BTW, this pic was taken when my mom took her show stuff out of storage and we played dress up! Trust me, my horse would rather be head to toe in the mud then pretending to be all fancy. Ha!
    Gorgeous Horse!

    So I found a pic of Scottys mom. I now see where he gets his looks. I had to do a double take and double check the socks as I thought it was him, even had the whipped cream lips.

    So then of course I had to see what pappa looked like.

    Amber will still be homeschooled. Most of her work is in virtual schooling online so she can do it about any time of the day. My MIL works 3-11pm when she works so those days Amber will only be home without us for a couple of hours. She isn't concerned as she has been alone for a couple of hours before while we run to town and is enjoying the freedom. Great kid I tell you.

    We have been going over all the details we will be facing with this job and are trying to come up with the best course of action to accommodate all needs as best we can. DW is going to get up with Jessa's mother in jail to try and get an undated POA so we can look into possible daycare for her if the need arises. MIL only works 4 days a week so that will allow Amber to do strictly school work all day on MIL's days off instead of keeping an eye on Jessa for the last couple of hours. MIL will watch her before going to work. There are a lot of things to take into consideration by letting her go back to work, but she is excited and it will help lighten the burden on all 3 of us financially, I hope.

    I actually, had to fork out $75 to get her finger printed and background check done to get the job, then let her go buy some decent walking shoes to work in. Seems I have to pay people to let her work for them. Lmbo...

    I'm going to saddle up the horses this evening for a ride each around the property. May not be but 10-15 minutes each, but will be a ride none the less. Will try to get some pics taken and posted to prove I still ride and not just do chores around them. Hahaha



    Glad you didn't waste a trip to the false goat labor. I saw the cardboard idea on here in the foot health section for horses dealing with lameness and that is what gave me the idea to offer it to you.

    I'm back

    No Rick, not insulted I have been out getting some sun on the head this weekend at a country music gathering. Would rather be elswere I find some of the local singers a little hard to listen to, and they do not play there guitars very well. But given there dues they are trying while I and SWMBO are not. Infact I have not played the guitar for quite a while.

    We have a house full of muso's at present, putting a few of them up and will get back to normal Sunday evening. I agree with Rick, some great photos.

    Keep riding every one and by the way, hot hot sun here all day. No snow.

    I would totally use this one! In between winter and spring, right before the spiders come out but just after the cold becomes chill.....

    "US arachnologists have estimated populations ranging from 30,000 spiders per acre in Mississippi woodlands to more than 2 1/2 million individuals in a grassland acre."
