    Good morning

    Koolio Sorry about my misinfo on you having tornados. I hate to hear about fatalities and injuries from those things. With the long cold winter, you have the real deal.

    SueC I like the ladder idea. Red is so tall, it would be like climbing into a tree house. And, yeah, having horses is going the "real" economical route.

    Nickers Hope the harsh joshing about the glasses was not taken wrong. The glasses take away from your attractiveness. We can't have that. Love the picture of you standing next to your horse.

    Stan Just put it in clay with some garlic and go with it.

    Tj Hope your riding lesson goes well Monday.

    Northernstar Hang in there those daffodils will finally bloom. After the winter we had here, I don't know how people stand those winters where the temperatures we had here this past winter are the norm. Trust me, I admire you. 5 degrees F is the only thing that would drive me to go under the house and wrap pipes.. :(

    I am sure I always overlook please forgive. Everyone have a good day.

    The boys got their feet done yesterday and DW said Little Man rested his head on her shoulder while Keeley was at work. She said by the end of the second hoof it was all she could do to hold him up as he went to sleep.

    They should be ready for a ride this evening and the next two days. I will saddle Doc up this afternoon and go check out some of the trails first then try Little Man on them. I may do some work with Trusty on the tractor tires if there is enough time. There is an extra tarp by my shop that I'll take out there to start his desensitizing all over again.

    I made DW and DD happy yesterday as I sent them to the local water park to buy their season passes.

    Squirrelfood Love the daffodils and iris. A lady gave me some iris last year. Only one bloomed this year. It was beautiful. I am looking forward to next year, hopefully all of them will bloom. The lady had a beautiful collection of colors. When they do bloom, it will be like unwrapping presents to see what colors I got.

    Roaddy It sounds like you work on desensitizing regularly. I have been studying groundwork techniques. I guess that is something that you do as regularly as riding. I am still learning. I hope all of this research on groundwork will pay off for me this year. I am afraid not to get back into the saddle. Too much time has past as it is. What is the work you do with the tractor tires I'm going to feel like an idiot if it not to do with groundwork. Oh well

    If I looked as good as Nicker does, I would wear what ever glasses I liked and laugh at everybody because I looked better than they did no matter what the glasses looked like..............

    Hello Everyone. I am new to the site; 47 years and have acquired my very first horse! My girl has been around horses her whole life and I have had the pleasure of being around them for about 2 years. I loved socializing with them all with no favorites. Then all of a sudden my hairdresser says "You can have that white one way out there in the pasture." You just cannot say "No" to that kind of a gift!!!! I did Not want a white, no, no. He came home with us.....I am stupid, sappy totally in Love with him; and it's mutual!!! The wonder and joy of that is just so amazing and overwhelming.

    I cruise through the site often and read the posts and get all kinds of data and info and being almost a 1/2 century I think "What am I doing with a horse? For the first time? I am such a guppy and Thank God he knows more than me!"

    Welcome to the madness and always emptied pockets of horse ownership. The cheapest part of living a life of horse people is acquiring I hope you can share pics of him soon and tell us more about him.

    Celeste, me and Stan have been telling her the beauty part for a while now. I never said the glasses took away from her beauty, only that they made her look older with that stern face she used in the pose. She is too young and vibrant to wear something that counters that.

    Ellen, I usually try some little thing every so often just to keep their minds working for desentizing. Here lately I have gotten lax on any of it. I had him pretty good going since I was riding him all the time when I got him last year then got tied up working with the green horses and left him sit too much. Now I ride a little more and he has gotten spooky with some things again so I want to fix it before it gets unsafe. The tractor tires are filled with dirt and are right beside each other so I can get them to climb up on them then up on the biggest one in the middle then down to one of the other smaller ones before stepping back down to the ground. Builds muscle and footing.

    I have a 60 foot row, with another 10 foot row off each end. MANY colors.
    Yes, it takes them a good year to settle in sometimes, before they bloom well.

    I hope doggie does improve and can stay pain free for both sakes.

    I have had 2 more inquiries on my horse trailer this morning. Seems I have priced it too low like I did with the fencing surplus so several people are looking to jump on it. I told the 2 today that I already scheduled a meeting with the guy 3 hours away and would let them know if he didn't get it. They both offered more than my asking price to come get it now. I extended my appreciation, but explained I don't operate that way. They understood, albeit with discontent. Just means I don't have to lower my price if I don't want to as I have an obo above my listed price. First time of obo working out to barter me for a higher price rather than for a lower one. Very strange uncharted territory for me.
