    Hunter what a great picture...the trails there look amazing!

    A gaited horse has very different topline conformation than trotting horses.
    Gaited saddles are built on a tree designed for this.
    The Simco I was riding is QH sized and it puts pressure on his shoulders, therefore causing him to pace instead of gaiting properly.
    Won't make that mistake again. LOL

    Still waiting for the pictures of the hair.

    I know what you mean how it will take an hour to sort. Not that I have that much trouble with mine. Normally it takes me a few seconds to sort, I only have a few, but her indoors now that is a different story.

    Any one remember Phillis Diller the actress. She sported the just got out of bed hair do as a trade mark it stuck out in all directions. When I take the love of my life some hay I also make she who must a coffee. Reminds me of Phillis Diller.

    Stella is still a little sore where the vet took the samples for testing and no results yet. I went to give her a bit of attention and she reacted to her chest being touched. I hope she is not going to go throught the same issues as last year. That will mean not much riding and what do you do with a horse one can't ride?.

    The weather is not to good, three days of solid rain. I have started to build an ark. I intend to sell tickets. I might as well profit out of the venture but in the mean time I have installed the pickup into my guitar and am not happy with the sound.

    The **** sheep have just walked past the rancher slider window they are eating the lawn grass which is not a good thing. It reduces the amount of work she who must has to do around the property.

    Even though it is raining heavy, and flooding, a mans work is never done. I have to go buy some firtilizer and spread it, after, I have spread the horse poo over the paddock, and in the heavy rain, then back to the ark. I will make a special stall for the horses. Just to stay in keeping with the focus of the thread Horses.

    Cheers all

    Great photos averyone. Does any one want to see a photo of rain.

    This was take a couple of winters ago but the fields were as flooded several times this summer so please do not talk about rain to me - three days is nothing!

    My days as a child carer are over! They are meant to be going away for a few days but really do not want to leave.
    Little 'un started to play up with Daddy home. She was being bratty and started her shenanigans - Dad began to placate her and she got worse. Couldn't help but tell her to stop immediately or else! She stopped which is just as well because I have never decided what the 'or else' would be.

    That child really should be in acting school, she can act out any sort of scene, her facial expressions are brilliant and she knows exactly what she is doing.

    Horses were all pleased to be inside today, tomorrow is going to be hotter. Four days without rain and the tubs need watering.

    Off to bed, I want to be up at sparrow's fart to get hounds and dogs walked, then set about purging the house.
    I tell you if I won the lottery (apart from descending on Stan and she who must) I would design a house that could be pressure washed out on a weekly basis.

    Night all.

    That we spot of flooding is nothing and when you consider its a days grace between days of rain we do compair. I would not have to build an ark for that, a canoe will do with an outriger to steady it. Sorry Foxhunter Ill have to go through my photos of the floods and post a good one for you HaHa.

    Stan: hahahaha Phyllis Diller who could forget lmao

    That place is one of my favorite places to ride and there is even a fun water splash half way through. Good practice for Hunter though he loves to play in it.

    Ear is healing pretty well but he keeps rubbing it. Just have to loosen off the bridle to put it on. Poor guy the right side of his face looks awful with the sarcoid medicine.

    We have had some nasty flash flooding and landslides around here lately. It is amazing how fast they can happen

    Hunter- love that picture you look so happy, what a good boy out on the trails.
