Welcome Coffeemamma =)

CW: you should have been riding her the day you handed them the first payment for her lease. There is absolutely no excuse that they could give you as to why there is still no saddle for her after nearly a month of leasing her.

Either she cannot be ridden or, she can be ridden but they couldn't even be bothered to get her a saddle because they see how willing you are to just hang out with her and love on her. You should seriously consider holding back 2 lease payments and getting her a saddle, (of course letting them know what you are doing.)

Have they done her feet yet? When was the last time her teeth were done? I'm very happy for you that you are enjoying each others company so much, BUT I am also angry for you because it seems these people are playing on your heart strings. I hope things work out and the next post we see from you is "I rode Belle, and we had a blast!!"

Off to work folks, have a great 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

Aaarrrrrgh! I'm so behind on this thread.. I actually try to keep up even when I'm not posting, but just haven't this week.

Welcome to the newbies! The more the merrier.

CW .. I'm glad you and Belle are bonding, but I agree that it is time to hold the leasers' feet to the fire.. I think they are taking advantage of your good nature and the fact that you just enjoy spending time with her. Something needs to give.

Everyone else ... I'll have to catch up with all of you later.. I gather there are horses escaping, lameness back, crooked horse dealers, etc ...

Hank is doing wonderful .. he's learned to sit, lay down, and roll over ... He sleeps in the bed .. (ugh .. why fight it!?!?!?) .. and has never missed a beat after being neutered.. I'll post pics later.. He's part of the family.

We're just busting our butts working on the back 2 acres trying to get it horse ready. The yearling "project" fell through .. so I've got another "thing" up my sleave.. more on that later..

Well, it's monday morning and I better get to work ...

*Later* !

yes they have done her feet in increased her hay and grain
My husband is going to talk to the father and see what will happen
Marc agrees we should not pay until we get a saddle

I am upset that they don't have a saddle yet

Still hot this side of the pond. I do not do heat very well - humid heat that is!

Dogs are uncomfortable with it being so hot, they lay up in the shade still panting like mad.

Nellie has a very thick wiry coat that does not strip out well so I clipped her out yesterday evening. Seal my Border Collie always has a trace clip in the early summer and autumn, this time I clipped her right out - she looks a bit like the dog in the video!

She doesn't care she is cooler. Has been running around like a two year old.

More later, supper has arrived = Fish and chips!
