    The movie is tonight. I'm likely going to let DW take Amber to see it with the church group and stay home with Jesa. I am going to be with Amber for an extended weekend the first part of April in Nashville with the teen group so figured this would be good for them. Jesa wouldn't sit quietly through the whole show so no need to ruin it for everyone.

    MN17, I just realized Jay has the same Roman head that Doc has. Sounds like those kids are catching on nicely to your methods.

    Koolio, I hope Cheeky heals quickly and you can get some rest. I am glad to be out of any sign of months of winter as I do not want it.

    I will add that I took one of those personality tests on Book of Faces that is suppose to be able to tell you which state you should be in. It kept coming up with Maine or Vermont. It must have been broken when I was taking it.

    Koolio, you've been up to your chin! Grad school apps to boot!! Sounds like Cheeky Pony is getting the best of care, and hope all goes well.

    Saw my doc today about all my results-I'm as healthy as any proverbial horse ever could be. I will get an allergy pill to try, other than that I have to do all the work on weight loss the old-fashioned way-eat less & move LOTS more! So, unless something comes up-I should see her in a year. So, it's nice to know I have a clean slate & can attempt anything that appeals to me.

    Bought a few items at the auction today & will be going again tomorrow & DH will come this time-he'll be busy loading stuff from today & whatever I buy tomorrow. There is a real nice light colored roping saddle that may be affordable, & I have my eye on a painting & some vases-should be a fun day & better than sitting here watching the raindrops come down.

    Have a great W/E everyone!

    TGIF!! So glad to see the weekend, cold or not!

    The vet was out today to X-ray Himmy's (aka Cheeky Pony) leg. Not the best news but could be worse. She has fractured the splint bone in 5 pieces including the one that came out yesterday. Luckily, the cannon bone is fine and the prognosis for recovery is good. She is on stall rest, antibiotics, daily bandage change and standing wraps for at least a week. We are waiting for the leg specialist to look at the X-rays on Monday to find out if they need to surgically remove the other bone fragments or whether they can stay put and be allowed to calcify on their own. Once the other vet reviews the X-rays we should also have a better idea of how long to expect for recovery time. Right now, it is looking like at least a month of restricted movement but it could be longer.

    DD just came in from feeding the horses and told/ showed me that one of our cats has a floppy, sore ear. It looks like he must have gotten some frostbite. One more thing to keep an eye on. Hopefully it is nothing serious as I'm really wanting to be done with vets for a while.

    Movie night tonight with take out for supper. I'll say a quick hello to Koolio when we go to give Himmy her antibiotics. Tomorrow I'll go for a ride and hope to book an appt to get my hair done on Sunday. I'm really hoping next week warms up and us just a little less stressful. I may have to buy myself a bottle of Calgon and have a good soak.

    NickerMaker - I love your pictures and am envious that you are getting weather decent enough for an outdoor ride!

    Roadyy- enjoy movie night!

    Cacowgirl - I'm glad to hear you have a clean bill of health! Sounds like some nice finds at the auction.

    Tjtalon - I hope you get back to your lessons soon. In the meantime enjoy the Eau de horse!

    Wow koolio I hope cheeky pony will be ok. I remember when accident prone hunter got kicked in his front leg about half way up from knee. Chunks missing from his leg it was nasty but he was never lame on it. I do hope all is well. We had a beautiful day today. 50f and sun shining but alas I had to work. Was hoping to get a ride in tomorrow but now more snow in forecast. We haven't had any snow all year til last week. Sheesh.

    TGIF everyone!!!! Woohoo! We made it! It wasn't. Horrible week...but kinda emotional on my end. Just stress...nothing too major. I do it to myself...but by today, I didn't let others bother me, and stayed at work tinkering until 5:00 ish...excited to create things for my kiddos. They are so eager to learn, it's motivating!

    Koolio, oh gosh, that injury sounds like something else. Good luck! As far as riding, I hope I get more saddle time's to be warmer tomorrow, but you never know how the dirt roads will be, hopefully not icy.

    Watching the weather channel now...looking like something big is brewing out west, storm Titan. Sunday to Monday 6-10 inches for us! Please not another missed day!

    Roaddy, yes jay has a roman nose..not,the prettiest horse I have owned....but he's got the biggest heart!

    CCG, happy to hear you got good news! Ow you can party...and shop til,you drop!!! Speaking of....saving $$$$$ for equine affair! Oohhh can't wait!

    Stay warm all, and get into those saddles!!

    Koolio, hoping Cheeky Pony doesn't need surgery!

    Cacowgirl, congrats on the good report from the doc. I also went to the doc today. I have gained 10 pounds since I saw her last year. Yikes. BUT, my blood pressure was better than last year and was 110/70 today. Hmmmm.....that seems a little backward.

    Rick, hope you are having fun with Jessa.

    Hubby and I were on for barn chores tonight. It is so funny. Hubby spends a lot of time out there but STILL doesn't know the horses and their names. So I tell him to go get Butterfly and bring her to her stall and he says "which one is butterfly?" I tell him the big black and white warmblood wearing a blue blanket. He goes out in the field and points at her and yells " That one?"

    I can't complain, it is nice to have the help and we can do everything in half the time it takes me by myself. We let Scuffy and Isabella out to meander around while we brought horses in and Isabella stalled herself and Scuffy followed us around like a puppy dog.

    I love how quiet it is when all the barn horses are put away and the lights are turned off and barn doors are shut and the field horses are munching on the hay we throw out for them. So peaceful.

    No real plans this weekend. Going to the movies tomorrow night with a friend. Plan on riding on Sunday. Things are finally drying out, just in time for the winter storm Nicker mentioned. So over it. :(

    Have a great weekend!!

    Whew, so glad to have a couple days off. Next week will be just as stressful with testing week, but after that, the year really sails to the end! I had a very strenuous PT appointment today. It was an evil reminder of just how out of shape I am. The knee is healing well, and when the weather finally flips, I'll be ready to ride!

    Koolio, I hope Himmy recovers well and doesn't need surgery!

    Happy Friday everyone! Our weather is supposed to get pretty bad this Anywhere from a trace to 5 inches, kind of vague don't you think?

    My boys had their birthday party tonight at a trampoline park. Where was that when I was a kid? It was great fun and BONUS, they were exhausted after 30 minutes ;). Stay warm peeps!
