It's amazing to me how many people live out here in these circumstances & so few have horses! If I could win the lottery-the water & propane could be delivered & I could build some storage sheds or a garage-that would be heavenly. Got to have something to wish for-LOL!
You haul in your water, not for me I have three 25000 litre tanks all being filled from rain water caught on the roof of the house, barn, and green house. Can't imagine hauling it in. Must be dry where you are.
And the killer for me today. I was to go riding with a bunch of folks, including my dear wife. Loaded the truck with saddles then wife decided she had to check her emails.
Stella is a problem at times to load. She has this game I'm not getting in there the spider will get me. So we always alow for her little antics. Time was going by and the time to meet was getting close. Hurry up wife, I needed her to stop Stella from side steping and going of the side of the ramp. I loaded Kate, then Stella, some antics then in she went, great, but without warning, up went her head and back out she came at full steam.
That was when the fight started. We knew stella would perform, but given enough time she would settle and get in the trailer. But of course we were now out of time. We had to join the convoy at a particular time or miss out on the ride.
Why did she who must, have to go and check her b---- emails at that particular time.
I am now writing this while she who must be obeyed has gone riding. I had to forgo as there was not enough time to play around with Stella so I let her take the truck.
Tomorrow is a diffrent story. I have decided instead of horse riding I'm going shooting, and taking the truck. No horses, or she who must. If she wants to go riding she can get someone else to transport her horse. Do I sound annoyed, well I am. Not only has she got my truck, I, paid for the B--- fuel.
Oh, and this evening when the truck and trailer get back, Stella is in for a rude awakening. I have just the tools and the time to give her an attitude adjustment. She is going to get over her fear of the horse eating spider that lives in the trailer real quick. By the time i'm finished she will be eager to go into the trailer. And she will make friends with the horse eating spider.
