MIL lives about 3 hours from here so I am here with the Daughter and Animals while he is up there. I am just so sad right now. I tend to go to my horse when I start to feel depressed about him losing his mother. My mom is also very ill she has stage 4 lung cancer. She lives in Florida. So I can't spend the time he is with his mother. I think he feels bad that I can'y. I tell him that I made the choice to live here and not to feel bad but to Please enjoy his mother and make lasting "good " memories while he can. Please all If you are the praying Kind Keep Hubby and his Mom in your Prayers. And my mom too. Cancer Sucks!

    I am so sorry to hear about both your mother and your mother in law. You are absolutely right, Cancer sucks. I also had Stage 4 Cancer but thank God, they caught it in time and hit it with everything they had. I am still here to tell but it truly changed my life.

    I am indeed someone who believes in God and I will most certainly pray for you and your whole family as you go through this difficult time. They say God never gives us more then we can handle but sometimes we need to ask him to help us through it.

    Crittersitter, So sorry to hear about your mom and your MIL. Wish I were closer too, I'd crittersit for you so you could go visit your mom and MIL.I may not ride often but I'm really good at feeding :)

    With Grace, Hope you're feeling better and glad your move went so well. I know I've got to get started if I'm going to ride again. Maybe it'll be dry enough to at least lunge Judy tomorrow. We've got clay here and if I've seen her get in a hurry and come around the barn and slip and land broadside. But she got up and apparently no worse for the wear, I'm learning these standardbreds are tough, she's 21 and came as a rescue underweight last year and in spite of me she's not had one cold, colic or founder, something I'm very grateful for.
    We are having Mule Days in Benson, NC this weekend :) lots of fun to look forward too, big parade and rodeo and lotsa mule events. No, even though she has big ears Judy doesn't get to go because I don't have a trailer yet.
    You guys all take care,
    Susan, Where are you? How's Sophie? We miss you.

    Norma - your little girl is very cute. Is she a POA? She's certainly taking advantage of the yummy grass. I guess it is extra good if once you didn't have enough to eat.

    There was a tornado watch here last night so riding was cancelled. I wasn't that sorry because I was tired and packed it in at 8PM when I normally would still be driving home, or driving around looking for a parking space.

    Does anyone know how to "make" a bran mash? I was thinking of getting some for an older mare in NJ who is losing flesh. It's not my girl, Dancer, but an old quarter pony with heaves.

    Hi all
    So sorry about your mom and mil crittersitter. My thoughts are with you.
    Cancer is a tough one.

    Grace I hope you are feeling better.

    Susan... Yoo hoo

    CW I really hope you ride soon.

    Welcome Norma and all other newbies!

    Haven't had too much time to post, been super busy at work. Its official I am moving Hunter November 1st. BO not too happy as her other boarders are leaving too. Nothing to do with her or barn just different circumstances for us all. I am so excited. New barn is only 8 minutes away and new BO said she has at least 5 people lined up to board there and all of them trail ride. YAY!!. Trails right across the street and miles of riding near by. I will miss my barn but it can be lonely and no trails. I wish I was at new barn now so I could take advantage of this beautiful weather here. We are having a late summer, July temperatures, simple amazing. Best to enjoy it now before the monsoons hit.

    Hi all!

    Thanks everyone for the get well wishes! I am feeling much better today, and am heading to the barn for my first lesson with our new trainer. SOOO excited, as I know this trainer is going to be awesome, and I haven't ridden Kes for over a month - I have been having serious riding withdrawals!

    Hunter - your new barn sounds perfect! Trails close by are such a huge plus. I hear you on getting all the riding in now while we are having this gorgeous Indian Summer. This weather is so great...I'm going to take full advantage of it before the rains come in. Just curious, but are you guys in Vancouver getting our smoke from our East Wa wildfires? It's supposed to be blue skies and sunny, but the haze here from the fires is so thick I can't even see the mountains this morning, and I only live a few minutes from them!

    Maisie - so glad the tornado watch didn't turn into a tornado...that's just scary!!

    Oobie - mule days sounds so fun! Take pics for us if you can!

    Have a good day everyone!
