    What event are the blue ribbons fore or have I missed something. This thread moves along at an alarming rate. Not bad for over 40, shows those young'ns a thing or two when it comes to communication. We have the speed and the desire to live life to the max.
    Talking about desire, I did not get to go on the ride today, I noticed this morning the dammage Stella did to the a hind leg when she fell getting out of the float a week or so back was weeping. You know, that made me feel bad, yesterday we were going through mud 2 feet deep in places and I had completely forgotten about her leg. Even though the photos were on road we were also going alongside pine forests with the odd cow making a run for freedom hence the mud.

    The boss, she who must be obeyed, that women, has gone riding. I went shopping for a new weather cover for Stella and some cream for her leg.

    Now I have gone shopping, and spent money, without seeking!! (new word for begging) permission from she who must be obeyed.

    I will shortly start dinner, steak, and that special sauce she is so fond of, and a cheese cake for afters. I will also start the fire to warm the house because the temperture will drop a few degrees when she discovers I have been spending money. I know all the tricks, and at worst, its the silent treatment for a few days, but i'm used to that, and, Ill use the quiet time to make a new set of reins for Stella.

    Stan,

    I took my forever heart horse to a local fun show and he won his three gaited horse classes.
    Hard not to be proud.
    I hope Stella's leg feels better soon.

    This thread just rolls along...

    Stan - your post had me laughing so hard my dog was looking at me funny...thank goodness you did go on your cattle drive fully clothed. Sorry to hear about Stella's leg, hope it heals up quickly. I'm sure her new cover and reins will make her feel better, a girl always likes new accessories.

    John - Who doesn't like carrots, oats and honey granola...I'd say Trooper has fallen into the hands of a horse spoiler, my Kes has also found her fate there, I brought liquorice to the barn tonight and after a few bites she was trying to push me back towards the tack room for more!

    I rode this evening in a pelham. Trying to decide if I show in HP in a Pelham or a double...decisions decisions. She goes better in a double, but I can manage a Pelham better. My trainer happened to come out to feed and caught me with my curb chain hooks in the wrong spot and my double reins not being held correctly - what would I do without him I don't know! Cantered quite a bit tonight, I love her canter, its smooth and comfortable and I get such adrenaline from it. Came home to the best hubby ever, who has decided he will buy me a show saddle for our August debut! I'm thrilled, and have already identified the saddle and made the purchase. 10 business days are going to be such a long wait. (I had to sell my current show saddle, it put me in a complete chair seat, and although I adore the schooling saddle I recently got and ride in, it is perfect for schooling and trails, not so much shows. My dressage saddle is for, well, dressage and not for the Hunter Pleasure ring. I'm so blessed to have a hubby who understands all that!)

    Intuition is a great thing and you seem to have it down to a fine art. The new reins were to be made if I got the silent treatment. I am about to do the dishes, then I will start the reins, only take a couple of hours but I will make it stretch out for two nights.

    I do have a ace up my sleeve. She who must be obeyed used my 4x4 this morning when she went riding, and brought it back broke. Well that's the impression I have got her to believe.
    What happened is the oil filler cap has come out and the engine has spewed oil all over itself. Of course I, in my most knowing voice, asked why she could not smell the oil and does she realise how expensive oil is, and the cost of repairs could mount up.

    Tomorrow I take a day off work and will go shopping for the part, and what else takes my fancy . What I did not mention was. The last person to play with the oil filler cap was me last weekend.
    I am a couple of years older than the boss, but it still goes to show it don't pay to mess with us older folk we have the ability to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Go the wrinklies.

    Hi everybody ... some of you might remember me! Have been so incredibly busy, getting through the end of the school year, caring and riding horses, and now that I am free from teaching for a couple of months I am working lots of odd hours on my part-time job too. My colt Eli managed to hurt his front leg twice with wounds in the pastern area. Superficial wounds no other damage but lots of wound care and several vet visits, stitches for the first wound.
    Moved my horses to a new very nice property last Wednesday and managed to get a nice sunburn to commemorate the hottest day of the summer so far! Rode my mare in the arena Friday for the first time at the new place and then took her out to the pasture where I realized that we need to work on riding out alone.
    Took the train into Dallas early this morning to begin a 3-day conference for teachers. You all know where I would rather be! Anyway I at least have a little time to catch up with one of my favorite threads before I get busy here.
    Those of you I remember and have somewhat kept up with ... Grace, love hearing about your new mare, Foxhunter I hope you have nice sunny weather today, Country Woman have you moved yet? Welcome all new members!

    Just had to tell you Stan, how great it is to have my first laugh of every day reading your posts! I will say.... if I were your wife, I would be very appreciative of a dinner ready for me when I got home, steak and cheese cake no less, and a nice warm fire besides! Maybe she won't give you the silent treatment for too long, with all that! :)
