    Koolio, SO glad you had a productive weekend teaching! That should really get your mojo running!!

    I sometimes do weekend courses on the brain, and I always come back jacked up....sharing ideas with different sets of people is liberating!

    Thank you also for the list of horse books. I had Horses Don't Lie, by Chris ???? In my hand at Barnes and Noble just Monday. LOoks like a quick easy read. I am going to have to force myself to open up a book right before bed.....I force my students to reach each night...yet I don't. Usually so sleepy after teaching and paperwork. Even just 15 minutes would be better than nothing.

    HP, we have a person who kinda was put into a AP position....just out of nessecity with all the changing of the guards.....it really went to her head....we all resent her bc she is still in our union and our equal, but has been given too much power. AND, I feel like she likes to stick to me...which makes me even more .

    CCG, my riding instructor wanted me to try dressage way back in my 20s....I didn't bite...I wanted to JUMP. I have considered giving it a whirl now tho. I loved competing in Western Riding, they seem similar in the sense that the rider completes a pattern with lead changes etc. Since we've reconnected, maybe I will ask for a few lessons to see if I like it! :)

    Not much here...probably wont get to ride...too slippery. HP, I suspect you have wet, high humidiy winters like ours. My snow often gets stuck in the hooves. I tried the vasaline once, seemed to work, but didn't ride, just took them for a walk. Koolio is correct, generally if the snow can ball up, the conditions arent conducive to riding.

    Stan so very glad to hear you had a marvelous time. Great photos too! You don't look Freddy Kruger AT ALL in that shot! LOL That buck is in velvet...I take it you can shoot them in velvet? I don't think our season starts until they are out of velvet. I live in a HUGE hunting area, btw.

    Have a relaxing Sunday all!

    Great hunting Stan, I am happy for you.

    Do you make stew with any of the meat?
    Last year we started using a new recipe.
    To every pot of stew we add two fair tablespoons of peanut butter.
    I know sounds strange, in a large pot it adds a unique flavor.
    Most people don't know what it is until we tell them.

    I am still working on the basement every evening and on weekends.
    We are off on Monday, MLK day, another long weekend.
    I'm still taking progress pictures to post soon.
    I pop in enough to catch up and like a few posts.

    NM: Not enough increase in pay imo, I would stick with the horses.
    Life's to short, make this half as you put it, your half!

    Koolio- I'm not so concerned about snow balls as I am slipping in the snow. Our snow is rarely powdery. The good news is that Rosie's owner has decided to move her to the show barn as a lesson horse and I can ride there! No date yet but then, I can't ride til after knee rehab anyway.

    NM- I know what you mean about it going to your head. We had that happen at another school. Not cool. I have been in this position since the start of the year and was always treated as the go to person to solve problems. It's always about treating people right and doing what's in the best interest of the students. It's just frustrating when they introduce me as the AP to parents and guests but on paper I am the counselor and paid as such. All I am wanting is to be paid for what I do!

    FP, Bambi NO its adult red deer.( but the breading is now mixed with other deer so not pure red) I have a problem with shooting young animals I too saw the movie when I was a child. I still get a tear when I see animals hurt the hunt is for meat not sport I only shoot for meat.

    Nickers, The stag did have velvet however in NZ there is no season as they are considered a pest along with wild pigs and goats. But the weather does curtail hunting No fun in snow. Quite a few hunt for the heads and only go out in the roaring season. Most do not get a head. Not out there enough to learn how to track. I learnt a mountain of information from the hunter doing the guiding for us. He really new his stuff.

    MR, Peanut butter in the stew. I will try that but most of the meat I am prepping for steak and roasts and mince the left overs for meat balls mixed with a little mutton they taste good.

    For those that think its the wrong forum for a hunt and you are right except we also do it on horse back so there, justified my post. No horses on this hunt the bush was to thick.

    And my learning from the hunt, Boy do I have to work on my fitness and I need a hair cut.

    But Stan, that movie is a gazillion years old. Bambi is grown now. You killed Bambi!

    I have a freezer full that I had forgotten about from last year. I thin I'm going to boil it and feed it to the dogs as treats. We let a local hunt club run dogs across our land and so they had dropped off a bag of meat....

    I usually make stew and chili with it.

    O/K I'm one of the older on the forum but not a gazillion years, there for some one else got Bambi I got a distant relative on Bambi's on her brothers side of the family. That's the side of her family that has become anti social therefore culling out the bad seed.

    I don't use dogs when hunting, but if its a pig hunt then dogs will come into it as the bush is to thick and the dogs are used to flush the pigs out or to bail them.
