    Hello all. I've been out for about a week so trying to catch up.
    Critter Sitter, I'm so sorry for what you and you're family are going through. I'm in a very similar situation with my BIL right now. Sadly they live many miles away. He has been fighting this for many years and is near the end now. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Susan, how are you doing?
    Stan, please keep making us laugh!
    CW, keep nagging at that barn. In the meantime is there any way you could just go spend time there?
    To everyone else, best wishes! I've had a wonderful time camping with a group of other horsewomen for the past several days. Loved it, but now I'm exhausted and have a ton of housework to catch up on and get back to work tomorrow night.

    CS - so sorry about Cody's injury, but I love that big bald face.

    CS - is there a long waiting list because this is a therapeutic program covered by National Health? Perhaps you could ask to volunteer with grooming, turnout, etc. and if they don't need it, ask about other barns that they would recommend. It's so important to go to a good place.

    Stan - I don't think you'll have to go far to find the perfect Christmas present.... and how is the other woman in your life?

    Where's Foxhunter and where's Susan? Hopefully they'll both wander in and give us an update.

    I had two more good rides on my girl this weekend. I think she's really responding to the bending and "coming into frame" stuff. It's so nice to feel her stretch her neck down and round her back. I'm also finally understanding how to manage her left side, which is stiff and so tries to pop out when going left, and fall in when going right.

    Well, I'm back at work so better get to it. Good riding to everyone.

    [QUOTE=maisie;1694768]CS - so sorry about Cody's injury, but I love that big bald face.
    Thank you. I think he'll be ok in a few days .. he is not limping on it and no heat or swelling.. its just tender.
    I feel so bad though cause he wanted to go ride so bad yesterday. We had a wonderful time Saturday Riding with the family and my daughters friends.

    Awe CW sorry about the riding, hopefully soon.

    Went to Campbell Valley Park yesterday, its such a nice ride.
    The new BO (where we are moving to) invited us to go on a "hunt" next weekend, its really just a massive trail ride but apparently so much fun. I was all excited til I realized its our barn BBQ on Sat and current BO will disown me as a friend if I don't go and help her. Oh well next time.

    I am happy to report that hair is growing back in one of the spots on Hunters face where the sarcoids were. I hope that happens to the other spots as well.

    CS I LOVE your horses face!!

    I have a little Satnav

    It sits there in my car
    A Satnav is a driver's friend
    It tells you where you are

    I have a little Satnav
    I've had it all my life
    Itís better than the normal ones
    My Satnav is my wife

    It gives me full instructions
    Especially how to drive
    "It's thirty miles an hour", it says
    "You're doing thirty five"

    It tells me when to stop and start
    And when to use the brake
    And tells me that it's never ever
    Safe to overtake

    It tells me when a light is red
    And when it goes to green
    It seems to know instinctively
    Just when to intervene

    It lists the vehicles just in front
    And all those to the rear
    And taking this into account
    It specifies my gear.

    I'm sure no other driver
    Has so helpful a device
    For when we leave and lock the car
    It still gives its advice

    It fills me up with counselling
    Each journey's pretty fraught
    So why don't I exchange it
    And get a quieter sort?

    Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,
    Makes sure I'm properly fed,
    It washes all my shirts and things
    And - keeps me warm in bed!

    Despite all these advantages

    And my tendency to scoff,

    I do wish that once in a while

    I could turn the ****ed thing off.

    Just a short ditty for the week.
    Stella is a mess her rear end is now becoming quite bald. On the other hand her front is healing. It seems this problem is working its way out from front to rear. She is not a pritty sight but she is not scratching as much as at first. However I do wonder if she has suffered some perminent dammage by way of skin sensitivity.

    Hey all of you who are going through trying times keep your chin up, we do get through it.

    Cheers all.

    CW keep pushing, get on a horse some where, keep the momentum going.

    Well, this is my third time trying to post, the last two went POOF! So, I'll catch up with you all later when I have the patience to type it all out again...grrrr.

    Am heading out to watch a training session with Kes. Haven't seen her since last Wednesday, and am horsesick. I know this is an amazing barn, with a great trainer, but darn it I miss my horse. I feel like just a rider, not a caretaker, and I know that was part of the reason we moved barns, but I just miss her. I used to ride 6 days a week, now it will be three. It's going to be hard to get used to. Just needed to vent a little.

    Ok, just had to let that out, I'll stop feeling sorry for myself now, because I do know I have an awesome trainer, and we're going to meet some goals this year.
