We had some rain here, too, but it should be dry for the next week now, but getting much cooler. Are you horse shopping again CW? Have you heard anything from the barn yet where you last rode?

Stan-So Stella is doing better? Can you ride her yet? The gray kitty is getting fixed? Your life sounds busy-& that is a good thing!

Hunter65-Sorry to hear about the car accident-do you know yet if they will total out the car or fix it?

Hope all the horses are doing fine & vet issues fade into the background. I think we all deserve a break once in awhile-don't you?

Changing the cats name to Ernest or Ernie for short. Roslyn said calling it Nutless was adding insult to injury. So now I have two cats slinking around the yard wondering what is the reason for there being. Earnie and James. Horses called Stella and Kate. Why is it we humans, humanise our animals by giving them names as if they are our kids. Is it because as we age and our children have left the nest, (well they never really leave the nest). Have you noticed when ever life throws them a curve it is us, the wrinkles, they put there hand out to, and we place the dollars they ask for in there hands knowing that the chance of it being paid back is remote. With mine every dollar they ask for I tell them this is added to the amount they owe and will be deducted from their inheritance. Little do they know I am actually spending that on Stella, Kate, James and now Earnie the new kids in my life.

With that little bit of rambling over its 6am and time to start work. More crims to brighten my day.

For those that don't know, Stella and Kate are the horses so I kept my rambling within the bounds of this thread. Horses.

Cheers all

I'm trying to catch up, but there are too many pages of posts to read them all. Nice to meet everyone, though.

I have six cats, as I breed Egyptian Maus. I haven't really named many animals with people names though. I have Sarabande (Sara), Zephyr, Solstice, Skylark, Flex, and Sony. My dogs are Mica and Midge, and any horses I have owned have come pre-named.

I'm glad Stella is better :)

The really good news is Two days of riding this weekend and all of next week as well.
We are riding over rough country this coming Sat and Sunday in prep for the up coming treks. Stella is looking good and hair growing back. She is full of beans so the first day might be interesting for me. The remainder of next week will be working on the beach and the sand dunes to help bring up her fitness.

She will try the I'm not getting in the trailer on the second day but that's O/K because I have an alternative plan. Trouble loading I'll ride her to the beach and work the sand dunes the revert back to the forest later in the week.

Hi to the new on this thread.

Cheers all.

Nice to meet you too Country Woman. I just noticed you were from the lower mainland. I am on Vancouver Island. The horse I am interested in lives in Chilliwack, and I have a lot of family there so that helps for going to visit him.

Hi everyone!! Sorry I have been MIA so much.. Work and Faomily has kept me away..
The MIL is getting worse not better and the stress it is putting on everyone in the family shows. Hubby Is spending alot of time with her (which is great for her) not so great for us. I am totally understanding but he seems thinkI am upset. I just try to reassure him that I am here and its ok. I do seem to have alot of crying spells and get depressed because I miss him and my own Mom.

Cody is all better with his cut but now it seems he needs a Float so that is in order next tuesday. He is not liking the bridle at all right now so I have been riding in a bosil.

CW I sure hope you get to ride soon.

Stan I like the new kitties name.

Welcome Baroque

HUnter Man I am sorry about the wreck Glad no on was hurt
CC We hot so rain here too 2.5 inches actually the horses looked like mud bugs.

Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse
