Any ways when I was talking to her tonight she was up set because the owners of Bert [ I found out that Bert is owned by Michaela's sister} My friend has to work there to keep Bert she also has to pay for grain and now hay
Any ways my friend is uneasy about the parents
She feels she is being taken advantage of too

She is now looking for another horse

In flood four hounds, very pleased with themselves. I start to usher them out and Duncan grabs a newspaper running outside with it. Dungeon follows before I have a chance. Dungeon stops nearly tripping me. I chase Duncan who has gone across the vegetable garden and through the hedge - not before shredding part of the paper. I pick it up.
All this takes no longer than two minutes - I return top my yard to find that all four are playing 'shred the papers' !
They had taken several papers out and having great fun killing them.

I should have thought to throw them out first and then chase the ring leader.
I can loan you a shot gun. Just as good as a dog chaser

Last week I put shoes on Stella ready for the cattle drive on Sunday.
Last night I was informed I am driving, yes driving the 4x4 at the rear of the herd. That has got right up my you know what. P off does not describe how I feel. Not only have I out layed for shoes I end up paying for the fuel, instead of refueling Stella on the drive with roadside grass.

This is a yearly event, next year I"m going on holiday perhaps deep sea fishing or I may even go on an overseas trip without she who must be obeyed, who is riding kate, and put my name forward as the driver, but one thing is sure I won't be driving a 4x4 at the rear of cows.

The picture is tomorrow nights dinner with mint sauce.

Cheers all Time for a beer.

O/K if I have the right photo. A farm buddy for Stella.

Rambo is the ram at the rear of Stella and the horses rump is Kate. Now Rambo has a thing for Stella he is always following her around, he gazes into her big brown eyes and I do not have the faintest idea what he is thinking. He is confused. The little lamb in the picture is one of Rambo's offspring . The one in the previous picture. With mint sauce.
Cheers all

CW sounds like things are moving forward for you now.

Now to cook my evening meal Chicken.

I wish we would of had a bridle I would have ridden her. She is nice!

Now why am I still up at midnight. Well CW and I get to my barn Hunter is in one paddock with 2 horses wth????? Go get him he has 14 abrasions on him and 2 big ones on his back. Text BO WTF is going on. Apparently he escaped again. Went over a round bale and through three 2x6 boards and ended up in the brambles. BO has to go get him in her dress. Meanwhile the 3 of them had a blast and kicked out the side panels of shelter. Oh my what a night! Oy gotta get up at 4:30 not happy :0(.
Bloody ponies.

The good note was we had fun with Belle.

Trying to post pictures here of my (possibly)new boy. Hope they come through.

He rode wonderfully!!
Lost, he looks adorable, well put together and just the kind of horse I'd like to have some day. As a kid, I had a Morgan/Saddlebred gelding who was sweet, sweet and really handsome though not uber-refined like a saddlebred. I think Morgan characteristics can be a good mix with some other breeds that are either very refined or have been selectively bred for a few outstanding traits. I guess that's why we have Morabs, etc.

CW, I'm happy that Hunter was able to help you with a saddle, but please be wary of the situation. As long as Belle turns out to be a good riding horse who is being well cared for it's fine. However, just the fact that they offered her for lease as a riding horse without stating that you had to provide tack gives me pause. One omission can be an indicator of problems to come, and the longer you're with her the more you'll become attached.
