I am going to meet her tomorrow. I have her on trial for two weeks...but I have this feeling deep in my heart that this is the one. Everything I have learned about her was everything I was looking for. I am so excited to go meet her tomorrow I don't know that I will sleep tonight!
    Yay!! Grace, she sounds wonderful - best of luck tomorrow :)

    I met Country Woman today. She came out and met Hunter, was nice to meet someone from here. My evil pony bit me on the back today - hmmm I thought we were over that. Somehow I don't think he will be trying again real soon. Tomorrow I hope hope hope to get out for a trail ride. The weather has been so crappy this year. Just had a thunder storm roll through. We don't get very many of those around here.

    If you don't know where your tar is, they've already beat it out of you.

    How awesome to meet another HF friend! I hope some come over if they're in my area! :)
    As for the evil pony, a few words from Anne Of Green Gables, "Tomorrow is a fresh new day with no mistakes in it....yet". Don't you just adore L.M. Montgomery?

    Wow .. ya'll have been CHATTY today!

    I didn't work today, so no sitting at the computer all day. We really just hung out here at the house, coffee on the back porch, chicken speghetti for lunch and then a nice countryside drive this evening.

    Tomorrow we will close the deal on the tractor at the John Deere place, go have our favorite beer at the local brewery, and off to a crawfish boil..

    Should be a beautiful day for it.

    Welcome to the newcomers!

    Oh, and my mare is an Arabian and I love her .. but they are not for everyone, that is for sure!

    Update on the perfect pony - still almost perfect, but we had the first opportunity to throw him into a pasture. If you recall, his one vice is that he doesn't want to be caught without a treat. I've had him in corrals and arenas and have had no trouble after the first day. I knew that a pasture would be a different story, and I was right. He has been in a tiny lot with a tiny bit of grass and I wanted to see him move out at a canter or gallop, so I waved him off to a gallop when I first put him into the pasture. Then, he decided not to stand still, so I made his feet move. He probably went back and forth across the pasture 3 round trips, and then stood there for me. So, it took less time than I thought it might, and he hasn't been on a pasture for I don't know how long....he has been up in small pens since at least February to lose weight, and then of course he's been quarantined since I got him. So, not bad but not great. I can also see that we need to work on the 'come to me' part - I got a fair amount of walking in tonight!

    Grace, I'm hoping you are pleased with the horse tomorrow -- how exciting!
