I screwed that one up.
This belongs to the photo of she who must be obeyed and the horse.
A magic moment My first horse Savannah and my wife pondering the meaning of a camera. Wife wondering if the sniffles from Savannahs nose will screw up the lense and Savannah deciding if she should sneeze.

Hi ouluann 61 and ride untill you croak. That's the way to go.

64 in a 5 months, almost croaked last christmas then realised my kids don't have the passion for my horse I have, so I figure i'll hang around for several more years and keep the horse company. And of course my wife.
Wellcome to this thread it does require a sence of humour and at times thick skin but all are good people.
I hail from New Zealand a place called Omamari in northland. Google earth and Ill run outside and wave

Thanks CW she is a very talented lady. I mean she married me that shows talent and a good eye to spot such a catch. Now that one should get me a back lash.

Off to visit my son today he lives half way down the country. A drive I am not looking forward too 6 hours. I don't mind riding the horse for that length of time. It knows its way home if I fall asleep, but the truck, that has a habit of drifting into the ditch and coming to a sudden stop.

Looking forward to hearing how the horse search is going.

All of our horses have gone through a period of change after buying them. Great for some months then they push the boundries trying to be the boss even to the point of bucking, being hard to catch, and generally being a real pain in the rear, but its what they do when sorting their place in the pecking order and coming to understand who is boss, then as time goes by they go back to the horse one first brought.

It has taken both Stella and Kate 18 months to settle. Savannah was also the same, just like children then they take on the persona of a teenager. And if its a young horse, pubity. (probably spelt that wrong) Oh why do we mature people take on an animal that resembles the behavour of our offspring

I had a great ride on Ruby today! The owner and I decided that we are going to do a "riding loan" up until August, then move her to my RI's barn, and by then we will have decided if it will be a lease or buy. This will give both the owner and I time to decide if it will work or not. She's being really great about it, and I will be going down to her house several times a week until then. Once each week will be a lesson for me on Ruby, and then I will go down to watch the owner ride her, the RI train her, and to just generally hang out with her, learn how to do all the fun stuff that comes with owning a horse! :) The owner gets teary eyed whenever she thinks about selling her, but knows that she really only has time right now for her other horse.
Ruby naturally tried to test me today, she really only gets ridden by owner or RI, so she was understandably a bit confused. She did great though, and by the end of the lesson, was much better at listening to me, rather than going to the gate. She starts off with a fast jog, which was pretty bumpy, but when she settles into it, it is a nice, slow jog that I will love!
Oh- and I should have pictures to post next week! :)
