Don't all mature people fart?

A fart, a fart,
Relives the heart,
It gives the stomach ease,
It warms the bed on a winter night.
And suffocates the fleas!

Apologies if it offends!

Hello, Foxhunter. I LOVE your story! The way you told it, I can picture it in my mind as it happened. What an amazing lady your mother was…riding at 80…and bareback. Just amazing! I never tried that and am quite sure I never will! You must take after your mother quite a bit?


Northernstar, thank you for the welcome. I have lots of memories of watching “The Monkeys” on Saturday mornings as a child. I didn’t realize Davy was an avid equestrian.


With Grace, I enjoyed checking out your blog. You and the others I’ve followed a little on this are such an inspiration to a re-starter like me. Looking forward to following your story and to see what comes about as far as finding the perfect horse for you!


Country Woman, likewise I am looking forward to following your story as well and hope you are successful in selling your lovely creations. It’s just a matter of getting your work out there for people to see and I bet it will take right off!


I’m supposed to have my first lesson tomorrow (depending on snowstorm or not) on a gentle giant/Percheron/Appy….having last been on a horse 28 years ago. My bottle of ibuprofen is already in my pocket! My husband is going to be there filming…not sure if that’s a good thing…we’ll see.

Hope you're able to find a good one Country Woman. Some around here aren't all that honest and the donated money is known to line the pockets of the organizers while the horses are still looking too underweight. But there are two very good rescue farms that I help at and have learned so much from working with very challenging horses. It can be emotional too, when the new rescues come in and you hear their stories, see the shape their in. Some don't make it. And it is hard when you have to say good-bye to those you've cared for and bonded with that get adopted. But to watch an abused horse brought in that is terrified of people, then get rehabilitated and develop a love for humans over time, is priceless and so rewarding

In an aha moment, I realized that it was now or never so on advice from a friend I'm riding with dressage instructors (no doubt mostly still working on the basics). I find that it's really different and harder than what I learned as a kid. Mostly, I've got to think more about things and then do them until they become automatic. Not to mention that falling off hurts more. I look forward to those two hours per week more than anything else though.

I just want to be a competant horse person with enough knowlege to recognize my limitations. It's good to find people who are, well, seasoned like me and can sympathize with creaky joints. Hopefully there's a horse in my future though I think I'll always need to rely on a good boarding stable. These animals are complicated.
They are complicated in their simplicity, but keep us sharp and on our toes
