MR, glad to see you made it home safe and sound....even if you DID get peed on! Hahahaha
DH came out to the barn tonght for a bit tonight. He doesn't come often, so it was nice. Do others have DHs who encourage horses, but don't really get into them?
Talking about horses and affection. Tonight prior to going, I walked up to Jay and laid my arm over his rump. Next thing I know he's trying to back up, like to get my arm more up by his head.
So I start petting him and then begin to mess with his mane, braiding it. The next thing I know he's inching over closer and closer....I had to watch my toes!
His eyes were half closed....he was enjoying the moment.
So....do horses show affection or like attentnion? My guy does. Yes, I truly believe they need a strong leader, but they also like attention. I even think Hammy the Hamster likes attentnion. He's gotten to the point when I walk into the classroom and turn on the lights, she gets up. She knows I put her in the ball to run then!
So tonight my coworker came over to see about moving my manure pile. He and I walked here and there inspecting the best way to take it out to the back field without wrecking my mother's yard. As he and I crossed the front yard, mother's DH stands on the front porch...cocky like, watching us. My friend speaks....nothing....my friend speaks again....we get a grunt.....I shake my head. Luckily my friend knows he's a jerk.
I swear when anther male is on the property, mother's DH gets all cocky and testoteroni. (yes, that is a word LOL).....he even gets that way with my DH. He acts totally different with just us girls. Is he trying to be macho? He's such a jerk!
CCG how are you?
Sue, I can't seem to see your videos.
NS, pretty flowers. I suspect you are close to the Canadian border?
Ellen, did you say you own both houses? The one with the methheads and the elderly couple?
We wonder about our new neighbors. They have their windows open when it's really cold out...are they smoking pot in there? I think more people do it than my naïve self realizes.
TJ, was wondering about your horseMOnday. Glad it went well. Don't let the pain in your ankle and pelvis set you back, you can do it. I have to make adjustments all the time. I really start shifting in the saddle by the 2nd hour or so. Three hours....and I'm really starting to hurt. I don't complain, but need to get off and walk a bit.
I hurt a bit SAturday....but I wouldn't tell. LOL I suffer through. I am wondering if I need a different saddle. Need to maybe go back to my sheep skin cover for those longer rides. If things don't get less painful, maybe I'll think about a different saddle.
Stanley, are those Tucker's comfortable?
OK, chatted long enough. Have a good night all.
