Rhen, I had an Arab come into my life last year, and I hadn't realized there was this huge space in my heart that was just her shape I wondered why I wasted so many years saying that I would never own an Arab, maybe it is because God wanted me to have Ace.

Why is it that my joints are older than the rest of me? I was sick a week ago so had to sit around taking it easy for a couple of days, found I didn't need pain killers, my knees felt great. This afternoon I was our long lining one of the Haffies, tonight I feel like I was run over by a bus.......dammit, stupid joints,

Started taking lessons again about six months ago and here I am the proud owner of a beautiful 14 yr old Quarter Horse mare. She is SO calm and sweet and just even being near her is SO relaxing. As a mom of two and working part-time my time with her is MUCH needed
Happy Birthday Artmis
Congratulations with your new horse Looking forward to seeing some pictures

Being from Ontario it'll be quite a hike to get there with my horse but thinking it'll be the best way for me and my mare to learn to trust each other... build my confidence.
The web site looks interesting so looking forward to it. Unfortunately I can't go until July so taking lessons here and there at our local stable. Thinking I need the three week total absorption of being with her... to bond The weekly lessons are good but I stress all week about them. Yet I enjoy them when on her. Errr
Good luck with your riding lessons ad your horse

If you're in OH, start by going directly to the north west near Lake Michigan - there, you'll find almost mountainous terrain, (where I live) and, of course, Sleeping Bear Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore, lighthouses, quaint harbor towns, rivers, forests, etc. After enjoying that, head straight up to the Mackinac Bridge, and you'll find yourself in awe as you cross. Be sure to head west on US-2, and you'll have the tip of Lk. MI to your left. Go north to Lake Superior and try to get to Munising as fast as you can so you can treat yourself to something wonderful - Pictured Rocks Nat'l Lakeshore!!! Once you've recovered from being awestruck by that, (not exaggerating! Been there a zillion times, and the parking lot is peppered with license plates from all over the country!), keep heading west! If you have the time, (if you knew what you'd behold you'd cancel every appt. For the next 2 wks!) go up to the magnificent Keweenaw Peninsula!!!! Copper Harbor! Brockway Mountain! All with panoramic vistas of Lake Superior like never imagined. Your life will be enhanced forever by this experience, and I hope you get to any of these places someday :)
Thanks! I know a few people who have been to Sleeping Bear Dunes but the rest sounds great!!!

I just spent $471 on my yearly vet exam. Husband couldn't understand why the price was so high so he kept making me break it down... farm call, coggins... Why do you get a coggins for a 28 year old horse? He's retired, that's $34 we won't spend next year... etc... so FINALLY I broke down and admitted that $150 of it was for Chiro for Riley and he was like "WHAT! YOU PAID FOR A YOUR HORSE TO GET A MASSAGE!!!!" No more horse massages... Yes dear... (with my fingers crossed and my tongue stuck out).....

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
