Yes I did, but it was a while ago.

Rob, do you have a TS? I bought mine there!

Evening all!

Another tough end of the day....but hanging with the horses helped.

I'm proud of myself...I got Rainn in her stall easily without a halter by just guiding her. Jay...he was like NAH, don't think so....so I did what guy McLean said to do....if they don't want to be part of the group! Send them out and work them HARD. So I shoed him away and continued to chase him around the pasture. (Our pasture is small). He stopped at one point, but made him move. Finally he came to a dead stop...and turned to face me...head down. I WON! I walked right up,to him and rubbed his head. Then I walked away.

I fed Rainn, and he came into his stall....I went to water. I wanted him to wait a bit...the bugger. When I came back he was outside rainn's stall checking out what she had going on. I gently took him by the cheek...and he walked right in to his stall!!!!. So he got fed!

TJ loved your drawings. Curious, are you left handed?

NS how old are you? Great to get an idea of what you look like! For some reason I pictured someone older....but you look my age. I can't keep the newer peoples ages straight. I know Roaddy and I are about a month apart in age, aren't we?

Since sue made mention squirrel, I had to look at your horses too! Pretty Arabians. The one looks like a mare that a guy asked me to work for him years ago. I could,ride it, but men couldn't....tried to have my bf ride it...she bucked him off! She was trying to tell me something..... hahahaha

Corgi, happy to hear Isabella is better!

Oh Roaddy, how could I forget captain kangaroo?? Loved that man. And threes company! I think I saw every episode. :)

I had to buy a short crop for Star-it was about $8.99 @ a tack shop-

Don't feel bad about it, btw.... When I first acquired her, her previous owner warned me that "She likes to see what she can get away with sometimes", and deciding to simply stop and refuse to move without a reason. I was taught how to hold it with the rein, and when she did her cute little 'I think I'll stop here and pretend I'm a statue' routine, just a firm smack on the shoulder with a sharp "Walk!" made her ears go up with a "Yes Ma'am!" So funny that's all it took, and up until then I was bewildered (and embarrassed) to be sitting on my horse that refused to move! The smack wouldn't have hurt a flea, but just the sound and gesture is all it took. Best of luck! I think you're doing great :)

NM: What a splendid compliment! I'm 49, going on 30! Haha I truly believe an avid outdoors lifestyle and wholesome living has a huge play in one's overall health. I've been a member of the forum for about 3 yrs.... :)

You make a nice figure on horseback, very balanced and part of the horse. I'm sure you've had lots of practice!!!
The Tovero is registered 3/4 Arabian. The "stock horse" is my Arabian stallion. The pic of Khrissy is this spring as a 5 year old. She won't mature much more, heehee. And no, I don't care at all for the "fashionable" Arabians they think so much of these days. As for practice, something over 50 years worth. Probably still room for improvement.

I was on this thread when it originated for a while, and picked up on it again this winter, actually! As more trails become accessible (snow/ice still on seas. Rds!) I'm online less and less. Early evenings are the only moments I really have to be on the computer, (not into tablets or laptops) while doing multitasks (Stan!) indoors then right back outside. :)
Forgive my manners, btw-I didn't thank you for your compliment! I'll return it by saying you look like a '40's going on 30's' gal yourself. Everyone here as well.... horses and nature- wonderful gifts from God :)

As soon as he handed it to me the horse started trotting. After the session he told me I should have a crop if I was serious about riding. So I went on line. There are lots of pink and purple ones for less than $10. The ones I like, plain black or brown are $50 to $100. Then there are the ads that had absolutely nothing to do with equestrian activities. Any recommendations for a plain crop a grand father of young ladies can purchase for less than the cost of a good dinner with his wife?

I'd go with the pink and purple one with the heart on the end I would not talk much about it though. I would also get a tee shirt with YOU SAID WHAT TO ME PUNK.

Not a good day at work yesterday I put my back out.
One of the offenders, a young lady, (and I use that word loosely) that I have had the misfortune of having to manage her when on sentence came into the office to report in. She sat down and promptly crossed one leg over the other showing off the new tattoo she was sporting on her thigh.

Her husband of only a month did the work, I have managed him as well for a while, then he pushed the boundries so into prison he went.

Back to the tattoo I bent over to get a better look at the Tattoo (as one does)(not the thigh I have no interest in the thigh) and put my back out.

Spent time with my doctor today (young female) having my back manipulated and of course my blood pressure went up. Not a good day. But I am glad the tattoo was not on her ankle.

I'll hobble out in the morning and spend time with Bugs

Oh Stanley.....

Thanks NS for the compliment as well, and I too believe the great outdoors does a person good

Sue, thank you too for the compliment on Rainn. I too think she is looking good. I made the right decision to put her on new grain.

To be nice today...may try to slip out at a decent time and grab a quick ride. Rain tomorrow...can work then.

Have a great day all.
