    Found a beautiful poem and wanted to share:

    "People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.

    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.

    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.

    What you spend years bulding, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.

    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.

    Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

    You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway."----Mother Teresa

    I just loved this, do the best you can, do it because you know within yourself it's right, wether it's with your spouse, children, friends, family, co-workers, and yes, even your horses. The wonderful, terrible thing about being human is that it's all up to us. Hope everyone has a great day, and Stan--hoping you see a marked improvement in Stella, she's a beaut.
    Very good poem I wish more people would follow this

    We are finally getting a little break in the weather-the house now gets into the 70's overnight. Hubby is going camping overnight tomorrow, & I have an invasion of ants to clean up-icky little buggers!

    Stan-feel so bad for you & Stella-itchy skin is hard to deal with. I wonder if you could powder (blenderize) some oatmeal, then soak it & sponge that on her? At least on her face/neck area? My gelding has some bumps/welts on him-that just started yesterday, so I know how frustrating this can be!

    Hey everyone!

    Chance, your granddaughter is adorable.

    Stan, hope Stella is doing better.

    What a crazy week. Work has been very difficult...the people have been unusally difficult and I jokingly asked someone today if it was a full moon and I was told that tomorrow is actually a very rare full blue moon. Working in a school system, I have discovered that there is a connection between behavior and lunar cycles!

    My corgi, Wyatt, is almost completely recovered. He is still on meds but is back to his normal self and no more blood in his urine. Yay!

    I have decided to enter my very first judged trail ride on Sept. 15th. The bad part is that I will be on vacation in Mrytle Beach Sept. 8-14 and the trail ride is early in the morning on the 15th. Luckily, Izzy seems to do fine when she hasn't been ridden in a while. We'll find out if that holds true on the 15th. It will be an adventure. I haven't trailered her since I bought her in February. My trainer is taking her horse, who is pastured with Izzy, so I thnk she will be fine since they will be traveling together. She is, afterall, a retired polo pony. She shouldn't
    Have any trailering issues.

    We are having an open house at the barn on Saturday to honor military members and their families. I plan on doing some demos with Izzy...pretty much just riding around the farm and answering any questions anyone may have. My friend owns a mule that she rides everywhere. She is going to be carrying the American Flag during the national anthem at a local rodeo next week and is coming to the open house to make sure her mule can handle doing that in a strange arena. She is going to stick around and ride some trails with me afterwards. Looking forward to it.

    So glad it is a three day weekend for us in the US. I need it bad!!

    Hi all!

    Good luck Corgi with your trails competition, sounds like a blast!
    CW - I am hoping you ride soon! I myself havent ridden since the 6th...it's killing me not to ride, so I know how you feel!
    Stan - any update on Stella?
    Cacowgirl - so awesome you are finally getting some relief with the weather.

    Well, had Kes's show shoes removed today, just has her normal shoes back on. I'm hoping the weighted toes on the shoes were aggravating her foot problem, and we'll see some improvement now. Let her out to turnout today, then left her with her run door open so she can move and stretch. She's been on stall rest since the 6th, with just a 15 minutes walk/trot lunge each day. She's been stocking up and I don't like that, and I noticed stall sores on her as well. She needs to get back to work! I may have to bite the bullet and get her legs xrayed. Hubby is going to throw a fit, I've spent over 2K in vet bills since April!

    Still on track to move Sept 15th. I'm so sad to leave my friends, and my trainer. They have all become so important to me. But, I am so very excited to get her into training, and me as well. I really like the show barn we're moving to, it's going to be a great place to grow.

    Hope all the US folks have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!!

    Well we had a different vet out today to check all the ponies teeth etc.

    Apparently according to him he can guarantee that Hunter is 5 or 6 years old.
    When I first adopted him 3 years ago I was told he was 18 months old. Then last August when I had his teeth checked the vet told me he was not even 4 yet. So we have been thinking he was four in April.

    I don't know who to believe but BO said he showed her Hunters teeth and her just turned 4 year old and Hunter has teeth her horse doesn't have.

    I am going through the same thing! The vet I used for the PPE told me Izzy was 13-15 years old when he looked at her teeth.

    After I bought her, the barn vet floated her teeth and told me she was 23 or 24.

    I contacted the first vet and he stands by his guess of 13-15.

    I don't know who to believe so I split the difference and say she is 18! She sure doesn't act 24.
