Hmmm... I've never tried the tomato/beer mix. But, I will have to try it with Snappy Tom. Sounds good and I will try that. Another refreshing adult beverage is good ol' sangria/Fresca.

The tomato beer sounds interesting. Will have to try it!

Seriously I am past retirement by three years now, I get bored with not having something to do.
Oh you must visit if you do come this way.

You may have to come find me where the wolf came from, though (last paragraph on page).

Hi all!

So the US heat wave has not made it to the PNW, that's for sure. Another wet drizzly day, wore a jacket to the barn. Kes did beautifully today, we had a really great workout. At the end I set the reins on her withers, hands at my side and used my seat to guide her in figure 8s around the arena, I was really thrilled that I am weighting my seat better, and that she's so responsive to it!

Since we are on the topic of beverages (my second favorite topic next to horses) I will say since I'm not a beer drinker, the tomato/ beer drink would do bad things to me. As a huge wine lover, the PNW is so perfect for me in that respect. We have some of the best wines in the world (no joke!) I'm positive I could even find something for those that dislike it. The ice wines are sweet and amazing with a little spritzer thrown in.

Susan - I love to see pics of Sophie! How do you not sit and stare at her all day long LOL!

Outandabout - I have the idea of framing Kes's registration and hanging it along our family pic wall, and see if hubby notices...

Stan - been meaning to ask, how's that little lamb coming along?

Stan-I've had shandy's they are good, too. The laws here protecting the open range cattle are very strict. Even have to be careful getting them off the property-can only push them slowly-harassing/chasing fast is not allowed. The minute they saw us come out of the house-they started moving away, they are pretty wild for the most part, so we don't get too close. They will charge, one last night had quite a set of horns. There is a bull also-I usually ride w/a bell on my horse-just cause.

There are so many remote and wild places - hard to find in the UK.

I would love to see places like this as well as deserts all have their own beauty.

One place I do want to see and I cannot recall where it is - is where there are the tall stone pillars where during one of the ice ages a dam of ice melted/gave way and the water caused the pillars to be left.

I saw a documentary on Nations Geo about it.

Montana, is another area.
I have visited Kansas and Missouri briefly - what I saw was very flat.
I waited to catch a bus now, that was an experience and a half and not one I would go out of my way to encounter again.


I want to go white water rafting again but on rougher water.
By the time I organise it all I will have to have my nieces or nephew to chauffeur me but they are great kids and terrific fun.
It will probably be my middle niece as she is the one with itchy feet for travelling

Hey everyone!

We had some terrible storms come through Friday night and lots of people and farms are still without power. Luckily, our house and the place I board Izzy didn't lose power. It is so hot and is supposed to stay in the high 90's and even 100 through next weekend. I don't know when I will be able to ride again.

I was on vacation all last week in Myrtle Beach, SC and it was the first time I was away from Izzy for 7 straight days. The BO takes great care of her but I usually stop by the farm on my way home from work and see her at least 4 days a week.

She refuses to stand in the shade...she stands in the full sun even in 100 degree heat. Silly horse.

When I went out there today, she was so happy to see me. She began pacing at the gate and whinnying really low and deep. She was soaking wet with sweat.

I let her out of her paddock to graze on clover under some shady trees and then she got a nice hose down. She loved that. I ran the water over her until she was completely cooled and then squeegeed ( is that how you spell it?). All the excess off of her and made her stay in the shade. There was a slight breeze and by the time I put her back in her paddock, she was cool to the touch all over.

But tomorrow, it is back to work for me and I have to work 7:00am- 5:00pm and can't get to the farm until after the hottest part of the day. I will worry all day. I need to remember she is an Argentinian Polo Pony that played in FL for over 15 years!!! I am bothered more by the heat than she is. :)

I can't wait until this heat wave breaks....I hate it.
