    I won't change her food unless I talk to her owner
    Do they feed her anything other than hay?

    Grace: Sounds like you are getting some real bonding time in with Kes...that's great!!

    CW...I cannot wait to hear about your first ride. How exciting.

    Don't you love it when you rearrange your busy schedule..(first drill comp is this weekend in Kentucky)...to show a horse and the people contact you a few hours before and cancel? Ugh.

    Good morning all ..

    I dropped Mr. Hank off to be neutered this morning. I thought he would be all stressed out about dropping him back off at the shelter ... but the little guy was actually excited to be there. He was bouncy and jumpy and saying hi to everyone ..

    Bless his heart .. he was there 5 weeks .. kinda his old home, ya know?

    So, I pick him up at 4:00 this afternoon.

    PS .. he slept in the bed with us last night *rolls eyes*

    That is a great job on the pasture! How nice you didn't have to do a lot of hard physical labor! Lift that beer can!

    Happy to hear Kestrel is healing & has put on some weight. I have an Arab-they can be very "light" on their feet!

    AZ changed a number on my truck's VIN #, so I have to go straighten that out today. Want to go early before it's in the 90's again-Whew.

    Did they cancel a practice for the drill or an actual event? Has your new horse done drill team before? Are you selling a horse? I think I misread something there.

    Best wishes to all for a good day-I need to get going.

    I am sorry I wasn't very clear.
    The competition is on, and so is practice.
    I rearranged the time of practice to accomdate a potential buyer and she sent email and cancelled this morning. Frustrating.

    Yes this is Patsy's first time in a drill performance. It just happens to be a competition so lots of added stress....

    Hi

    I just turned 52. I started riding a year ago. I purchased my first horse 9 month ago. Santana and I had a couple of rough month, I was inexperienced an he was very pushy and disrespectful. I never gave up on him. With the help of a great trainer who trained us both we became a great team. My trainer comes to the house twice a week.She made all the difference.

    If I ever have the pleasure of meeting up with any of you - I will be easy to recognise, I am the one with MUG stamped on my forehead!

    Conversation a couple of days ago went like this.
    "Hello Linda, do you need any flesh?"
    "Yes please, when can I come and collect it?"
    "I am passing so can drop it in this afternoon."
    Thanks, Mike. The (hound) pups are doing well, they are a great source of destruction."
    "Oh, what have they been up to?"
    "Pulled all the rugs off the racks and dragged them through the mud - after they have been washed. My favourite trowel has disappeared, as has a boot. Ropes and halters all over the place. They have chewed through a hose pipe, in several places. They've only been here a couple of weeks."
    Michael was laughing at the other end of the phone, "Oh," he says trying to stop laughing, "that's a pity, I was going to ask if you would have two more pups that have just come from Ireland, they are a bit poor and I have picked out the two weaker ones as you are so good with them when they have problems."
    Silence on my end
    "You still there?"
    "Yes, just thinking about it. Haven't you got anyone else?"
    "No, either they already have theirs or are away or are going to have a couple from the later litters."
    "No one?"
    'Nope."
    "S*d you Michael - We had two couple last year and I said not again this!"
    "Yes but you have so many dogs that what difference do two more make?"
    "That might be so but two more dogs are one thing - two more hound pups is equivalent to having four 'normal' dogs."
    "So you'll have them?"
    "I guess so."

    Two hours later Mike arrives with two dog pups, five months old - both a bit skinny and in shock from their journey from Eire. They are over the shock and are well settled in. Loving the running around finding trouble to get into.


    I am still in shock.
