    Koolio I know that 3 of them are rescues and the they don't intend to keep them forever. Owner said they are Arabs, not my first choice, but I will keep an open mind when I meet them. I'm also a bigger girl and I always imagine arabs as smaller horses, lighter weight. We shall see tonight!

    Bryce Canyon Horseback Riding | Ruby's Horseback Adventures
    Bryce Canyon Utah a 10-12 hour trip from Denver depending on stops.
    You can have that really cool horse adventure.

    Could be done in a five day, great use for some vacation time.

    TJ no you do not insult me. I invented the word.

    Cacowgirl No Warfarin. I refused that crap. I don't take a lot of meds and had embarked a year ago on halving some of the pills to no ill effect on the state of my health, other than the liver, so, I am halving it again and upping the exercise, eating less red meat, Beef, but more venison and wild pork or should I call that free range pork and venison.

    Nickers. I am investing in a heart rate watch which will let me know when exercising if its under to much strain. It seems at my age 21, the max rate under exercise is 220 beats a min less ones age. So my max is 155 beats per min. My exercise is walking up hills as it simulates the area we hunt which I have to get fitter for.

    Maryland rider. No I'm not buying her a horse. My wife pocketed the money from selling kate (which I still think was a mistake) So she has to part with some of that for another horse if she wants one. And also, I am a Kiwi male, and strongly believe in equality, and equal pay. I draw the line around the house though, the wife should do the cooking, cleaning, washing, mow lawns, wash the vehicles, the windows, all that mundane stuff while go out and hunt for meat, That's fair don't you all think. . I'm fairly confident Rick would support me on that one won't you Rick, and good luck with getting a place close for your horses.

    We are having visitors today and I have decided I am not cooking dinner SWMBO can. I'm going to sit back with a beer and vegetate. After all it is Sunday and because of the visitors I can't work Bugs.

    Cheers to all and for the new ones keep jumping in and posting even if its to have a laugh at my expense, its what this over 40 is all about. Nickers said it all, an on line family and family do disagree at times.

    Does that mean you are having steak on the barby, or me you are going to BBQ. I won't be very nice a little tough and contaminated, but after several good beers. Who cares.

    Greetings! Just on for a little bit - can't help but to ask, who else is still getting snow? Just saw our local news, and a few more inches coming yet tomorrow/Mon., but a winter storm Thurs/Fri.... below 0 tonight. Tomorrow will get up to 20, however! I take all of this in stride, as it's not unusual at all. Heck, we received 2" on Mother's Day last year! Had to chuckle just now as he said, "This system is sweeping down and coming from the middle of Canada"... then as that sweeps over Lake Superior and MI, the "Doo Doo hits the fan" here. Good thing my mares are still wearing most of their fuzzies :)

    MR, I'm going to check out those horeseback adventure sites. Sounds like a huge addition to my Wish List. You never know, maybe I can pull it off somehow, wouldn't that be wonderful !

    I laughed out loud, reading Celeste's "PS I love you Stan ", because in reading Stan's post I thought "oh, Stan, I love you", before I saw Celeste's post. Gee whiz, Stan, reckon you're loved alright!

    Happy Place, am wondering how the Arab-look turned out?

    Going to express a computer frustration. On the phone w/my (83 y/o) mother tonite, trying to send her pics of the kitties she was looking forward to. I'd sent the recent me-on-Addie pics on the old browser (FireFox), which was fine, but have switched to GoogleChrome, & the pics come thru HUGE (like Tim on the cat tree shows a knickknack on the shelf behind & part of his butt), & I don't know how to make them smaller. Even tried copy/paste from photobucket, like I learned to do (thank you Celeste) for posting pics here, but it still didn't work on email. We finally gave up, & she will ask my sister how to make the pics smaller. I feel like an idiot, know I'm missing a simple step, but this stuff isn't learned by osmosis. Sigh. Just wanted to give my Mom a happy moment & couldn't do it.

    I'll play around more w/that, just not sure what to try that I haven't.

    Going to do my chores tomorrow & hopefully get rested up well for HorseMonday. I'll take my reins & ask Janice if I can try them out. Northernstar, we're still getting intermittent weekly snow here, but not much; just stupid cold/wind/flurries w/odd days of 40-50 degrees surrounding. Odd, not "typical", but I think "typical" weather went out the window awhile ago.

    I'm going to go look at the sites MR sent me, then go to bed. I'm so glad I took Tuesday for a vac day, I need it.
