    Had another great ride. Took the new guy out but I think he pulled his groin getting on. One more ride tomorrow before the rains come back.

    It is nice to have. I'm going to put an old 4 foot chest freezer that doesn't work any more in thereto store the horse feed til its time to go in the feed barrels. The saddles, bridles, pads, brushes,etc are all kept locked in there. I have power run out to it and fence charger is in there. I ran the hot and ground wires through holes drilled in the floor next to the wall. I still have some of my other mechanic stuff in there to, waiting on the seller to get more of his stuff out of the shop.
    Its a messing there at the moment, but will try to get a pic of the inside for you tomorrow after church.

    Hey everyone. Wow...I am absent for a few days and this place explodes with lots of posts and lots of new people. Welcome everyone.

    I can't go back and respond to everything, but I will say I liked reading about goats, outhouses, freddy krueger, and kathy bates!

    Thank you nicker, for passing on my good news about Isabella. She is completely recovered from her colic episode. I am so glad I called the vet when I did, even though it was a holiday. The tubing worked and she had 4 piles of poo the following morning. That made me feel a little better but she still wasn't eating or drinking. I had to leave her in the great care of my barn owner and go to Southern Va to move my mom. Going 4 hours away from Isabella was VERY difficult but the BO sent me frequent updates. I am very lucky to have such a great place to board her.

    The movers were 5 hours late showing up at Mom's house which meant I could have waited and gone down there the following day, but it doesn't matter now. Mom is safely in Maryland with her sister and her belongings will arrive at her new apartment on Tuesday.

    I went to the farm today and Isabella looked great. She even took a long drink at the water trough even though it meant stepping on ice. I think she did it just to me to prove she was doing what I told her she MUST do to avoid being tubed again.

    I went to visit my friend in the hospital this evening. She is out of ICU and in a regular room. She has some short term memory loss but she is able to joke about it. She tells some things over and over again because she doesn't remember telling it, but that's ok. She is alive and talking, and breathing, and laughing. I am so grateful she is alive. Last Sunday, she was given last rites by her priest and today we talked about our next "girl's weekend".

    She does have to have a defibrilator put in her chest. She is scheduled for that on Monday.

    I am almost afraid to say it, but today was the first day since Dad died in October, that I didn't have a single thing to worry about. It is a nice feeling.

    And now some pics!

    Here is Isabella, and her "boyfriend" Dance...taken today when I got to the farm.

    Not great lighting, but this is what I have retired my evening to while dw and dd are gone to town. Lol
    Poor lighting, but you can barely see Jessa in her little recliner.

    Ladona, went through that with my sister and her massive heart attack. For 3 days she repeated the same question every other minute. Once you were out of the room for more than 2 minutes she would ask why you hadn't come to visit. When you came in for the 3rd day straight and several visits a day she would ask you when you got in to town and why you took so long to come. It was cute for 3 days then it got painful to see her react the same hard way every 20 minutes when you told her again why she was in there. We wrote it on a white board on the wall across from the foot of her bed so she could see it. I cried more over the next 2 days for that reason. She still doesn't remember from the heart attack at home up to the second week of being home from the hospital.

    I'm glad your friend is doing so much better. My sister died 3 times before getting to the hospital.

    NickerMaker71 try a bareback saddle. Ridding bareback hurts! Lol Honestly, the bareback saddle for me is better than any English or Western. Mine has a burlap type of fabric so the legs grip nicely. As for the stirrups? Can't mount with them so what's the point? Besides, not using them help the legs position just right. I'm not an accomplished rider so if it works for me... :)

    Thanks for the welcome!

    My grandmother was like that but she had hardening of the arteries. It was so sad One of the last times I visited her she said bye was nice meeting you. She was like that for years. Very sad
