    OK Stan, when can I come stay?

    I read a book a few months ago called "A River Ruled My Life" all about a city woman marrying a rancher whose place you couldn't get to at many times of the year because of the depth of the river.

    I loved it, a hard life but one she loved.

    CW & Susan come stay then you will see for yourselves!

    Weather has been what we would call normal for April, heavy showers on and off all day. Not a lot of rain in them but enough to make the fields very greasy.

    I have been running the three year olds and yearlings together. Want to start breaking the older ones - about time they had something done to them! So, this morning we went out to bring the older ones in. No problems, the yearlings were a bit upset at being left on their own and were cantering up and down the 4'6" railed fence.

    Went out this evening to feed them and give them some hay and found that two were in the wrong field. The only way they could have got through was to jump. No rails were down so I am quite impressed. They stayed near their correct paddock as the third was in there on her own.

    The youngsters all had bridles on for the first time today, didn't do anything else with them but will start them lungeing tomorrow.

    Off to get something to eat!

    Well, I have some news! I hate to jinx myself, but, I think this mare is the one. Rode her for the first time today, and we just clicked. Once I make my decision for sure, I'll give you guys all the details. I'm going to ride her again on Thursday, and I think a vet check will happen early next week.

    I've been walking on cloud 9 since I got home, and have a perma grin :)

    Yay Grace!!! Best of luck!! CW - how's everything going with your horse search? I may have missed some posts, but always thinking about you!!
    I have a teensy favor to ask you guys - whoever sees this today, will you please wish me luck with finally getting the exterior of the horse shed sided? Eeeek, have I been patient, and finally had to ask another company to come and get it done! Details later, but I think today is the day! Will be here in 5 min. Better get out there.... Thanks guys! :)

    Hoping you get the shed siding done. We painted the fascia boards on my shed a couple of days ago. Now I have to put up the brackets so I can hang the headstalls, etc. We did put the saddle racks in-looks so nice.
