The quality of the meat is dictated by the quality of the wine/ale

If rear meat is required do not supply cook with to much wine/ale making sure it runs out just at the right time.

Well done meat. Join the cook for a drink making sure the supply is ample for the evening.


Sound similar

Our trails are called Proud Lake. They are the most rugged of the trails in our area. They are hilly and not as groomed. I was going to try to incorporate something like that into it...like "Proud Lake Trail Riders...." this is where I get stuck.
Anyone that has a good one, please chime in! Thanks!!!

Proud lake riders do it on the trot

I don't think my bank account can survive 6 months of this addiction! I'd better get done with this Equine Massage Therapy certification and get my business up and running ASAP or the hubs is going ground me from the horse!

Stan - good idea...get him to stew over the tack before it arrives. Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission... It was just too lovely a saddle to pass up, a Stubben Wotan that will look so lovely in a Hunter Pleasure class this August. I'd better start looking for some show coats asap, as I have the horse outfitted but I just never invested in the show coats I am going to need this summer.

CW - did you visit Annabelle today? How did it go?

Kes's fetlock is much better. I went and walked her another 30 minutes, groomed her, loved on her, put meds on the eye lid again, and cleaned her stall. My BO thinks I can start riding this week. Thanks be to God, I am just dying to get on this horse and start the program she needs to get the muscle back on. She was peering out of her stall door tonight as I drove in, there is nothing like having a horse watch for you, started tearing up as soon as I saw her. Can't believe after 38 years this dream is mine.

That horse has you worked out. You are like butter to her, all soft and mushy. All she has to do is poke out her tongue, nuzzle you, stear at you with those big brown eyes, and you keep coming back for more. Then when she ignores you, you will try all the harder to get back into her good books.

Welcome to the world of horse ownership.

Beautiful day here in the SW UK. Sun is trying to shine and nothing that looks like a rain threat.

I have turned all the horses out and they are enjoying the sun on their backs.

I think that this couple of hound pups are the naughtiest yet.

They are 11 weeks today and into everything. Two very different characters. Raindrop likes to be around me and is a 'talker' Rascal is off on her own already exploring. Both are worse than the other pups at taking things. They are trying to pull the halters off the hooks, pull the dog beds out of the house, pick up and take off with anything that is not nailed down. They cannot reach much at the moment but time will come when they can!

Darn sheep are still not lambing! Only two so far another seven to go. It is far worse than lambing hundreds. I am fairly sure that at least two have triplets inside them.

CW when will you get to ride your horse? We want pictures!
