    Dee, I am so sorry for you daughter, Logan and the baby momma. I daresay she was pressured by her family and giving up a baby cannot be easy so I expect she also felt guilt and this was played on by those who did not approve.

    Hums for healing.

    I have never had children - always had lots of them around me though. I treat them the same as I treat the animals, firm, fair and fun. Boundaries widen as they can be trusted.
    Milly's boyfriend is a single parent with two children, son is 10 and daughter 6.
    The girl can be a nightmare. She makes such a racket when she wants her own way although her father is tough (ish) I do not think he handles it the right way.
    Anyway, they are here most weekends and madam has had a few up and downers with me. She knows I mean what I say and say what I mean. She hated me to start with but, now follows me like a shadow.
    Anyway, Milly and Dad want to go away for a few days and I have been asked if I will have the children. Evidently they were asked if they wanted to stay with Grandma or down her and unanimously they wanted to stay with me.
    I feel honoured to have been asked as they have never been away from their father for more than 24 hours, and proud that they want me over Grandma (who is a strange woman!) Whether or not I will say this after a week of having them 24/7 is another matter!

    Off to bed, Horrid day, drizzle that soaked you through all day. It is really getting us down. Em and I both felt drained before we started and even more so by the time we finished. Get a nice sunny day like Wednesday and we get three times as much done.
    Where is summer or even spring?

    Oh Dee, I'm so saddened for you and your daughter. Sending prayers and healing thoughts your way to help with that heartbreak.

    When she who must be obeyed annoyed me I, on only one occasion, pointed out the cost of the horses. She always responds with.

    Stella is much bigger than kate therefore cost more to feed, uses more fuel when towing, requires a larger float, bigger engined tow vehicle, and larger saddle and tack. Smiles while walking away, and while I wipe the egg off. She throws the clincher, and you would not fall as far if Stella was shorter.

    Stan, you definitely are in a battle of the wits with "She"! Wow - I don't think I could think that fast on my feet!

    Dee, I'm so sorry to hear that your daughter got that heartbreaking news... we were all so joyful for you, and hopeful that babymomma would do what was best for Logan. Kudos to them for going ahead with the home study and moving forward...

    Grace, tell DH that owning a horse is not all about riding, just like owning a fancy powerful car is not all about driving. There's maintenance, cleaning, waxing, and simply gazing at it and enjoying having it. Maybe he'll get the connection!

    Good evening everyone
    Went out to see my horse and she was not in the paddock
    She and 2 other horses escaped so it took awhile to catch them

    Let the games begin

    Dumb animal!!! Not so dumb if it can work out how to escape from a compound constructed by what is touted to be a far more savy animal. Humans.

    Nah, no battle of wits, I know my place two mares and a wife.
    I get up at 5 in the morning, go to work and on pay day throw the money into the paddock for the horses, shed a tear for the $, and do it all again the next week. Stella gives me meany interesting moments and attitude. What more could a man ask for.
