    Nice to be off tonight 2 hours early. Will do my weekly call to my mother in awhile.

    Thanks, Tracey, I'm glad the qualification is over, & don't have to think about another for 6 months. Yeah, Rick, I've considered that targets don't shoot back, & can you imagine asking a "target" that does: "Excuse, can you wait a minute while I put on my ear protection & level my site at you?" Weapons are no joke, of course. I certainly never hope I ever have encounter anything but a patient piece of paper.

    Tracey, I'm glad your two are home with you. That must be a wonderful feeling. I don't "envy" all of you that have your own horses, whether in your backyard or a little ways away, I know it's not a thing possible for me. More of a wistful feeling, "oh, that must be so nice".

    Stan, I love that Bugs follows you around. How 'bout I trade dishes & laundry for a chance to hang out with him for a bit, lol?! I gotta win the Power Ball, that's all there is to it...!

    Ellen, I enjoyed the description of your morning!

    HP, hope the sinus thing clears up soon.

    Hope everyone gets whatever's bugging them to clear up soon, myself included.

    Cheryl-Cadam, are you coming back? Interesting people have popped in, then they just pop put again. Which is ok, of course...but, hope Cheryl comes back.

    Well, going to go call my Mom. Glad it's my week-end. When I go back to work, it'll be April, which is another brand-new page.

    'Nite all.

    Hung out the washing and started the fencing ITS still too hot sun still putting out a lot of heat and we are going into April, no rain in the forecast for at least another two weeks.
    Some photos just for you TJ.

    Bugs being Bugs







    Head in the barrow and he removed my camera case and also tipped over the wheelbarrow He tried it again but I chased him away that's the photos of him running.

    It was a good session even though he was not being ridden he was being pushed around and handled. He stayed with me from the time I left the garage until I returned to it. I had to give him some food to get him to stop trying to come through the gate with me. What a dilemma if I ever had to choose.

    while on a roll a few more photos


    Well that seems to be it. The system stopped and I had one of me in tights. Well perhaps it for the best.

    I just made a discovery if I double click on the photos they come up larger and closer. Just as well my shot in tights failed, it was a rear view.

    Morning all!!

    Been reading, finally got enough gumption to write something somewhat intelligent.

    First, Ellen, that's not a rant...that's a proclamation! And I LOVE it!! I wish more people appreciated what God has given us. Everyday, I stop and enjoy,the beauty around us. At least around here, it you just simply can find something to be awed over.

    I remember a good friend of mine finally had the nature epiphany after her mother died. We used to go on hikes all the time, I would point out this that or the next wasn't until her mother passed, that she literally stopped and noticed purple cone flowers and the such....unfelt it was a shame she had gone 50 odd years without really 'seeing' what was right there in front of her.. Oh well, at least she finally did.

    Speaking of beauty, I ended up riding yesterday morning. By the time I got tot the barn, the sun started peaking out...thought it was a sign. ultimately, the skies cleared, it was blue skies and SUN! It felt good on my back.. Very little breeze.

    On our trek, I saw several flocks of swans landing in a nearby field, so we went to investigate. According to the news they are heading to Canada, but with the harsh winter are having a hard time finding open water, so they have turned back and resting here. They are so beautiful. Unfortunately, we didn't get too close before scaring them off. Jay didn't seem to mind them taking off.

    What did get his attention was a herd of cattle standing by the road. Head up, chest proofed out....he was lookin'. sometimes you can tell he wants to spook, but if you talk to him, he says OK.

    Thanks for all the feedback about trailering. I like to take information, mull it over and decide what makes sense to me. I was thinking too, I can't sit cramped in a car for more than 3-4 hours myself, so getting them out only makes sense. I've ridden back there as a kid Stan, , highly illegal, but I had to try it.

    Also, forgot about shipping boots! Will put that on my shopping list for E. Affair! The list is growing.

    Another question, this person I have been talking too said something about NOT tieing her horses to the trailer....gosh, if we could not get a stall at a show, mine stood at the trailer all day long! And that was more often than not! I can see if your going to be some where for hours and hours making a picket line, but what if you get to your destination, tack up and go....they aren't standing at the trailer for long at all.....

    As you can tell I question a bit of this persons ( it's a local person) thought processes....I've mentioned her before....

    I talked to the lady who sold me Rainn again. She's super excited about me getting the trailer and coming to ride. She's super nice, I could see us very easily becoming friends....which I apparently have a hard time doing.....

    I think my problem in finding quality people to be 'good' friends with...if I continue to look in the same venue.....same venue = same types of people, and this generally, in the past produces people who are a bit self centered.....I would like to find a friend around here that believes in a two way street....not just me giving, giving, giving....that's why I'll ride with this lady and her friends....different circle. Give that a try.

    HP, I think I have that sinus thing too! Think that is what is causing the sore throat. Feel way better this morning....lots of rest yesterday. The crazy weather certainly doesn't help. 50s yesterday, 2 inches of snow lay on the ground currently....50 s M-W! YEA!

    TJ, awe, happy you have your weekend.. Don't do too many chores, enjoy it!

    A view of the vast land around our place. Still so brown looking....but loved the sun out yesterday. Way in the distance is the farm I grew up in and had my horses. :)

    I'm glad I didn't see snow this morning.
    It will be almost 50 for me today same as yesterday.
    I managed to get 80 bails of hay yesterday.
    Although I might have to change my name to Noah and build an arc.
    More mud is not so good, field was drying quite well.

    As for riding, I guess my first ride will be an Easter egg hunt in April.

    Cleaning my shop to make more room and remove the clutter.
    I never realized the amount of lumber I have saved.
    Hardwood scraps are going to the woodstove, everything else to the burn barrel.
    I am saving some unique pieces and veneers though.

    Have a great day all!
