I didn't actually go to sleep LOL I took a walk down memory lane...

And yes there is a package from DH that I locked in the barn to keep me from opening til he is home. I have no willpower *sigh*

Hunter .. I knew there were issues with Vaquero, but I had kept myself from reading .. After reading today, I fired up my TouchPad and went to her blog .. watched the video of him staggering out of his stall .. and am watching the video now of their bridless ride at Congress last year ...

I cannot contain my tears .. God, I hope nobody walks in my office .....

I watched that video of him coming out of his stall last week. People at work are starting to wonder whats going on and of course none of them are horse people and would probably just roll there eyes. So I sob in secrecy. I will watch at home later when hubby is gone to bed.

I knew I shouldn't have signed up to her blog at work

The video of her at Congress is what really made the tears flow for me.

Goodness, everyone has been very chatty!

It is sad about Tracey's horse. I have seen a few wobblers in my time and it is horrid to see.


DEE Child welfare need to be involved - allowing children to climb trees is dangerous! Health and safety would be down on you like a ton of bricks!

Really I think it is great to see kids adventuring like this. People next door bought an awful plastic tree with a swing and slide - the sort you get in a playground, when there are masses of real trees to climb!

As children we were always climbing trees and set up ropes so we could play Tarzan. Often resulted in scrapes and broken limbs but it never deterred us.

Back in 1987 the southern part of the UK was hit by a hurricane. There was tremendous damage and the area where we played as children (The Landslip) was flattened by the winds. Masses of tress felled one on top of another. I was so pleased when I found that the oak I loved was still standing and could not resist climbing up it!

Darn puppies found a crate of plastic flower pots this afternoon. They were scattered all over the orchard and out onto the main garden! It took me a lot longer to clear them!
