    Welcome P. Rose-lovely horses & very nice riding terrain.
    I need to go into town today & get supplies, sure am hating the high gas prices-we're about 20 miles from town. Oh, well, the solitude is nice.

    Hope everyone is having a great thursday!! My tummy is upset today for some reason.

    I have a new boarding dog coming today.. a briard.. he is going to have fun with the Border collies. The lady is bringing him to my hair shop though. So he will be here with me this afternoon. We'll see how that goes.. I may be packing it in early today. I want to go be with my Cody anyway:P I missed him yesterday.

    I'm off on another road trip - 8 hours driving yesterday and another 4 today. After this I am off for 2 weeks to work on some school papers, and I am looking forward to the break from work. After driving so much yesterday I was restless at home so I went to my friend's boarding facility and tagged around with her on her feeding rounds. Helped lead a few horses, and acted as goalie when one determined guy wanted to nip at the food wheelbarrow as it went by. It was nice to just be around the farm, very calming.

    Critter sitter I read your post and it was not until I got to the point where you say his teeth that I realised you were talking about a horse. But you confused me again when you made referance to bit options and then. "I think I will have him have him look at my bits too".

    I know the message was all about the horse but from my angle. I spend my day writing reports to Judges and the Parole board that have an effect on a persons life. Now and again I see the funny side of what others write because I do it myself. I have a proof reader who frequently points out the funny side of what I have written, and she corrects my spelling

    Gass prices. Sorry folks but we have the gold cup on that one

    Super is around $2.25 a litre $9 NZ a US gallon and our dollar is valued at around 82c against the US$

    Diesel is a little cheaper at around $6 a US gallon but one has to add the extra road tax to that which for my vehicle adds a further $1.80 a Gallon so Diesel for me is $7.80 a US gallon, but wait there is more, as you lot go into winter and use fuel oil for heating our diesel goes up in price. So I know you will consider us here in the southern part of this world and wear tight under your jeans and save on fuel oil thus reducing the cost to me and, I can, while you hunker down for winter, go riding.

    This weekend we are riding for three days on end if the weather allows. May have some photos to show. That is if I can afford the fuel to drag the horses around to the different farms and forests we have decided to ride in. Well I did not have any say in the decision she who must be obeyed told me what we were doing.

    As always I own the spelling mistakes.
