My parents always threatened to "beat the tar out of me" What exactly is tar anyway? Where is that located in the body?

Grace...I hear ya! This spring break has made me dread summer break! My boys fight constantly and are always trying to push each others buttons. They are 10 and 12. Plus, I work at the school so I am off the entire summer and my job is only part time so the days I do not work, I am at the barn while my kids are at school. Losing barn time and stuck with the craziness!

He knows when you are happy. He knows when you are proud. He also knows when you have a carrot.

CW... I strongly would go with the QH. A few of the ladies I ride with have Arabs. They are extremely skilled riders and these horses have a lot of miles on them but every ride is an adventure with them. I always ask them if they would rather ride a QH and just have a more relaxing ride.

I got a JOB.
I haven't had one in 10 years. I am so nervous! It's not a hard job, cooking in a restaurant.
I am hoping my leg will hold out....!
Summer break will be interesting, my two are 13 and 9 and they are going to have to fend for themselves while I work.....

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

CW I'm so excited for you. 3 horses to check out. That is really nice. I think I would ask for a specific number of days, so that there is no ambiguity. Being kinda greedy myself, I'd ask for 3 definite days. Anyone else think that's right? I've never leased, so I'm not really sure how that all goes. I'm so glad that things are moving for you.
Outnabout, nice mare. I like her coloring. She looks like a smooth ride. And she looks to be in really good shape. Nice.
Candandy49, I'm so sorry that your leg is in such a state. It must be hard to deal with. I'll say some prayers, that it heals well for you. What a hardship to deal with. My heart goes out to you. What a long recovery. Bless your heart.
Northernstar, is that invitation to Foxhunter open to US residents also? Your place sounds soooo neat. I'd even bring the wine! Just kidding. But it does sound really nice.
We have had some sightings of cougars in the area and two were shot last year, as they were right in barnyards, and not about to back down. About 15 miles West of where I keep my horses, a cougar mother and two young were seen. And about 10 miles East of here, a horse was attacked by a cougar. Scratches and bites on the lower neck. It must have been a young one, as the horse fought it off. They are definitely out here in South Central Minnesota.
JoJo, what kind of horse do you have? Do you mostly trail ride?
2SCHorses, What kind of a pony did you inheret? I think it's really cool that you are going for the distance riding. I thought I'd like to try that, and if I had a Mustang like my Mustang Kung Fu, I'd do it. He was long legged, and could go forever. I'd also have to lose some weight. Ahhem. Yes. Some. Ha ha
Yes, that certainly is an open invitation! I would be thrilled if any of the forum friends were to look us up if in our area :)

Congratulations on your job, Susan! Some strict laid out rules, emergency #'s, etc. while you're gone should work out well :)

I sure agree! I've seen that kind of "action" at the stable where my horse was boarded before bringing her home - another boarder had a few arabs that were literally all over the place when she was with them, and I always felt so sorry for her while I was enjoying a nice ride in the arena or lunging mine....

My boys are now young men, and also 2 yrs apart in age - I've noticed that as they got into their teen yrs. And now, the age gap closed considerably. They would do their share of bickering when little, and I always chuckle when I think of all the times I had to say, "Enough!", separate them and make them go into a time-out in different parts of the house. They were drawn to each other like little magnets wanting to play together, check on each other in their respective rooms and couldn't bear to be apart for long. So cute! Things would be hunky dory after that :)

My boys weren't threatened, they were well acquainted with it at times haha - time-out worked for bickering, but when it came to safety issues, there was no hesitation breaking out the wooden spoon. My husband can recall his wooden spoon days as well! As I've stated previously, "Bless all moms who've used a wooden spoon on their boys - they make excellent husbands, and loving sons!" :)

I have an Arabian gelding. He can be rather -ahem- interesting to ride!

My heart horse was also an Arabian, and although always alert and more 'on' than most horses, he was extremely sane and a joy to ride. Casper isn't a whole lot like him, unfortunately......

I now have a retired racing TB. Some people have asked if I have a death wish, but JJ really is a very lazy, mellow, easy ride. There's a reason he washed out at the racetrack.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
