    There is something about the "empty nest" syndrome that is painful at first. Then you start to get used to it. There is less laundry to do. Less dishes. Less cooking. Less schedule. And your kids still love you and come to see you. Especially if they run out of money..........

    I am 66 and just sold down my herd of 24 Arabians to only 4, with one still for sale. I've owned my own horses since 1964, breeding and training Arabians since 1980. Now, I'm old and tired and don't want to work so hard. I'm also selling the farm, and looking for a place with 5 or so acres, so I can handle the upkeep.

    Roady, click the little '4' down there in my siggy. 3 of them are there, will have the 4th as soon as I get some new pics of him. I'm in north Arkansas, at the foot of the Ozarks, with 26 acres and 17 stalls, several smaller run-ins.

    Ok, no one can ride Wednesday through Sunday. I will be out of town away from the horses and unable to have a chance to ride therefore none of you can to make it fair. Lol

    And don't go bringing logic into this by trying to drudge up some nonsense about me riding while you were or are out of town..that is just you being selfish and that is not a good characteristic.

    No worries here Rick...it will take a month for the farm to dry out enough for me to ride. :(

    Welcome Squirrel!

    I had a day off today and spent it out at the farm. It was extremely muddy and windy but the sun is shining. No riding due to the slippery conditions but it was so nice just to be out there.

    I brought both Isabella and Scuffy out to graze on the green grass. I sat in a chair and enjoyed the view.

    I don't know if I have ever described Isabella's personality before..but in one word, she is serious. Super serious. I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen her "play" or be a clown. On the other hand, Scuffy is the biggest clown on the farm.

    Today, I caught her in a rare playful mood. She was playing in a puddle. I thought for sure she was going to roll, but she didn't. Here's the video.


    I knew I was going to have a good day out there because she was in the back of the field when I got there and when I called her, she came running (with her friends). The big black horse that came up with her is Butterfly and this is the one she became obsessed with 2 weeks ago. As you can see, the fixation is gone.



    I am loving this weather. I think Spring is finally here. I am sitting on my front stoop with my ipad and catching some rays. It is back to work tomorrow, but right now, all is good with the world. :)

    Ladona, enjoyed the videos! Isabella looked quite happy!

    Welcome Squirrel, took a peek @ your pics. Very pretty horses!

    Rick, you won't have to worry about ME riding this week, lol! Enjoyed your story of the funny dump in the slimy water...! Bet it made Tracey smile, for sure.

    Tracey, I don't have a funny story (unless my Savannah barfing a hairball on top of one of my bills this morning counts, just as I was ready to go out the door. Anyway, she picked an appropriate area..)
