Texasgal - can't wait to see pics of your new pup!

Spent 4 hours at the barn this morning, walking, grooming, putting on the meds. I may be able to ride on Tuesday, can't wait! I let her out in the round pen for awhile to kick up her heels, she rolled around a lot which must have helped her soreness in her back, as when I ran my hand down the sides of her spine before I left there wasn't any flinching.

Got two new tack catalogs in the mail yesterday...do I dare open them?

So had an awesome day at the barn (except for losing my keys and leaving my phone there) Got home and Rob had cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed, washed the decks and started the laundry. Lucky girl I am.

Poor Hunter always gets himself in trouble. I don't know what happened but his back legs are all scraped up. Sheesh. No more field for him. Just as well as it is a mud pit right now.

Soon to come, check out the critique section I will be posting picts in there. Look for "critique my pony Hunter"

Texasgal can't wait for picts of Hank!

I am...I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it feels to pull up to the barn and see her head out the window waiting for me. Just taking her for a walk makes me feel like I've won the lottery. It just doesn't get better than this.

Now I understand the saying "If you are lucky enough to love a horse, you are lucky enough"

I know you are probably feeling the same way lately, right CW?

Don't doooo eeeeeeeeeeet! I have the same sickness...lol..I just bought her a black dressage bridle with a brow band that has swarovski (sp?) crystals encrusted on it, with a spanking new bit...and I was eyeballing new saddle pads and girths....and other stuff...had to buy those peppermint horse cookies...she loooves peppermint lol!

Glad Kestrel is doing better, she's lucky to have you =)
CW: good for you, can't wait to see pics of you riding her!
Fox: we need pics of those wee beasties, the puppies not the lambs lol.
Texasgal: LOOOVE his name, PICS please!!

Today was a wonderful day, I arrived at the barn to chill with my girl and make sure she was ok outside in her paddock. Long story short, her old owners had her stalled for 8 yrs, she's now a happy horse again. She called for me for the first time. Made me melt! Hubby doesn't really get it, but he's happy since it makes me happy lol. Wow her attitude towards me just blew my socks off, can't stop smiling, blessed beautiful day =)

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

Sounds like everyone had a great weekend. Love that someone is getting a new leash on life with you texasgirl.

The weather finally was nice all weekend. Although, I only got to ride for a bit. But I don't mind. Even just loving on them is enough.

Happy Monday everyone.
