Hi all!

Went to the barn to lunge Kes this morning, I swear every horse owner was there! Was lucky to grab the round pen before anyone else and got her worked. She was a sassy thing, probably after listing to fireworks all night.

Hubby's toe is probably not broken, he can walk on it ok, its just when he tries to move it...it's going to be pretty black and blue though!

Stan - doesnt everyone catch their horse that way?? I know anytime Kes isn't interested in being caught, all I have to do it lay in waiting in the tall grass, as she gets close I climb to the top rail of the fence and launch myself off it and towards her. Works every time and I think she's starting to respect me more. ;)

Hunter - so sorry about your car! So good that CW was there to help! When doing the Dukes of Hazzard move, be sure to slide all away across the top of the hood first, way easier than walking around to the door, especially when the law is after you.

Glad to hear those in the heat are getting some of our rain, and we are getting your sun. I finally got to break out my new prescription sunglasses to drive in, and WOW why did I not get some sooner, those road signs do actually say something!

Reading of Hunters car accident reminded me of an incident I had.

Several liveries had gone out for a ride. There was plenty of room down the drive for vehicles to park but one owner would park head on to the garden wall which made turning awkward.

Whilst they were out I had a call from a woman who had moved into a small hill farm a couple of miles away. She had an elderly mare fallen into a ditch and was trapped upside down. She had only just moved and knew no one who could help her.
I grabbed ropes and jumped into my battered Land Rover. Now, this battered and trusted friend had a soft top to it and the back flap was down so this ruled out seeing from the rear mirror. The wing mirrors were covered in bird poop from where the Wagtails sat on the mirror fighting themselves and pooping on the glass so they were pretty useless.
I slammed into reverse and went smack into Graham's three day old car.
As the LR was an ex-army vehicle for radio control the bumpers were different and protruded further than most, they did not cover the centre of the rear either.

I smashed in the back passenger door and the wing on the drivers side.
The horse being more important, I drove off.

We got the mare out of the ditch and when I returned the liveries were all in the pub having lunch. I stopped and walked in apologising the the car owner about his car. He didn't believe me - nor did his wife! He thought I was pulling his leg. His wife went out to check and came in saying "She is telling the truth!"
There was no way I could have denied it was my vehicle that had done the damage because of the shape of the injuries.

It was decided that rather then claim from the insurance we would pay half each if it wasn't to much. He was at fault for parking where he had and he recognised it.
The quote wasn't to bad so he booked the car in at the garage.

The day it went in he came down to ride. He came up to me and said "I have some good news and some bad news."
"Give me the bad."
"The car is going to cost over 700 to repair."
I swore and said "It will have to come off the insurance. What's the good news?"
"Neither of us will have to pay."
Turns out he was taking it to the garage and was stopped at some traffic lights. A woman, having a terrible row with her husband, got into his car and reversed out their drive, across the road and straight into the car. She further damaged the passenger door, drivers door and front wing.

A lucky escape.

Hi all, hope everyone is doing great!

C.W: screw them, stupid is as stupid does. You will find your forever horse, trust me

Hunter: How is your poor babies ear!? that looked HORRIBLE!

Grace: congratulations on your new saddle, it is quite lovely!

Now on to my news: My mare is home at last WAHOO!!, she is STUNNING! pictures will folllow tomorrow. 3 YR old bay, with a blaze, Thoroughbred mare, registered, 16 HH still growing. What a DOLL, she's got quite the personality I love her already. I was a total stress ball for a week trying to get her down here from Fort Erie. But she's here and wow im just wowed by her.

My only problem is this, I hate her name and want to change it, if you guys have any ideas PLEASE feel free to wax poetic!

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson

DH proved again how much I am spoiled....He took me on 6 hours of road trip today, for a new horse cart. To him, he says it looks just like the one I sold except that this seat is a different color. (This one is lighter, smaller, and easier rear entry without having to climb over seats.)

Foxhunter, the crashed car story is too funny! Hunter65, yours is not so funny. I am so sorry - it is such a pain to be without a car and aggravating when it is so preventable.

Fahntasia, congrats on getting the new girl home! You must be soooo excited! Tell us her registered name, and her barn name, and more about her personality so we can suggest names. (I'm not very good at it but enjoy the challenge!)

CW, I simply cannot believe that Kailie person. You are well out of that situation. I'm with Stan, too - if Marc hangs around and helps as much as he is, these horses will work their way into his heart. There might be 2 leases in your future!
