Good morning everyone! I have enjoyed reading all through the posts every morning when I get up!
Rascaholic, what a great husband you have! He obviously knows you very well, to buy you just what you need!
CW, will you get to see Annabelle today?
With Grace, is it an allergy to flies and bugs do you think or to grasses? Poor baby I hope she gets better soon!
Texasgirl- the puppy is adorable! I remember my first lab... my uncle gave her to me, her mom had been hit by a car, so I had to take her at 5 weeks old. She lived to be almost 14, and was my best friend all through my teen years... enjoy him!
Hope everyone has a good day today!
Another frustrating rainy day- no lesson today, have to wait until Thursday now. :(

Yes Chance he and DS both . Maybe I trained them well? LOL maybe it is because I baked bisquits and left them in the fridge for them to have this morning.( But they are never spoiled. )

I know what you mean Chance, about catching up with THF. I love to sit and read while I have my coffee. It sure beats watching the boob tube. On pretty days when I am home for coffee, I like to take the laptop outside and just sit, read, drink coffee, watch the dogs and Rascal, and watch the squirrels and birds in the yard. That will really start the day out right.

I often read the amusing stories to my client. She is an elderly lady of 87. She used to live for her horses, according to her grandchildren. It's so funny to see her get animated when there is a post of particular interest. I have tried getting her Grandchildren to log in and read to her, but "It's not the same" she says LOL. I wonder if it is because the children don't make her coffee and take her out to smoke while she catches up.

ETA: I love older folks! They remember when common sense was "horse sense" LOL

Rascaholic: I can't believe you got 3 new pair of breeches!!! You lucky dog. I really want a pair but since I ride Western now (ish) I suppose I would look silly!

WG: I would still maybe call your vet. She/He might be able to give you something to help with the inflamation. You know, like horsey benidryl?

No barn for me last night as I had to do things at home. But the rest of the week I should be good to go. We are having a "fun" show on Saturday and I have to get my girl all spiffy. I am going to give my hand a try at braiding. Anyone know how to do a tail? My girls tail at the top is like all short and puffy. She rubs it ON everything. Any hints/ideas how to deal with that?

We had those stupid little biting black gnats and they gave Rascal fits last year. Vet said they liked the smell of his poo so were attracted to that area. Vinegar in the water helps deter them.
Maybe shave the top of it a bit? I forget the correct term for it. But you shave down about 4 inches, and braid from there on down. It's a regular maintenance though. Not sure if they do that in the western disciplines, it's been WAY to long since I participated in ANY type of show.

ROFL Not really girly, more like having a bit of pride in your self and your girl . Girly doesn't suit horsewomen IMHO. We are to **** tough to be "girly" we go straight to "womanly"

I did, big time . The best part, Dh and DS were more than willing to help me do a quick saddle up on Rascal to check fit, and start his refresher course. And not one time did either of them whine!!!! I was so proud of all 3 of them

So, Hank had to try us last night .. lol. AND it would have worked on DH but I had to "tune" on BOTH OF THEM ... hehehe.

He objected to being crated at bedtime .. barking and howling. A couple random torpedos to the side of his crate and he got the message.. bless his heart .. he's really smart.

He's getting the message about putting his teeth on humans .. well, me and DD15 anyway .. DH still "lets" him bite .. ugh.

He's really got the potty thing down though .. so cute. I can take him out 10 minutes after he's been out and when I say "potty" .. he squats and tries .. even if there is nothing in there... lol. It's funny.

Hanky is a good boy..
