Keep pushing, I mean the riding not the car.

Yes, I realize some other countries have VERY high fuel costs. And when we have hauling to do, can't really economize on the cost. We also haul in our own water in a 500+ gal tank, & have to go get our propane, too. Oh, the joys of living away from the city! 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!

Hi all!

Wow, had a lot to catch up on!

Welcome Baroque and Prairie Rose!! PR - your horses are beautiful!

Hunter - so sorry about your daughter's car, glad no one was hurt. I don't blame you not wanting her riding her bike to work at those hours in the cold!! Hope you are able to find something for her quick.

CW - Hope you hear from your barn soon, we want to see you riding again!

Critter - Your smart to get those teeth done and have a look at the bit, I think a lot of people forget that keeping their teeth healthy is just as important as a good saddle fit.

Stan - can't wait to hear how Stella does on your upcoming rides!! Is her condition much better?

Anyone heard from Susan or Fox? Did we chase them off???

Fahntasia - how's our favorite TB doing lately?

Cacow - how are things going lately? Did I read elsewhere that you are going to sell your horses???

Kes is doing wonderfully, I couldn't be happier with our new barn and trainer. She's bending so well now, listening in her snaffle, is using her hind soooo much more and her canter is really coming along. Cannot wait to take her into the show ring next year. Haven't tried trailering in awhile...must remember to get her out to that trailer soon. Our two lessons a week are improving me as well...I'm learning so much. Kes has a boyfriend She nickers to this little gelding every time I bring her from her stall and up the aisle to the cross ties, and he nickers back, it's really too cute!

Hope you all are doing well!!

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.

Stan, I'm sorry you missed your ride, and after not being able to ride for so long. I hope Stella doesn't think spider phobia is a way to get out of work.

Just don't hurt yourself butting up against those hard headed women.....

Wow Stan, honestly, I too would be very angry but not at Stella the horse. I would wonder why the person who is supposed to help and support me chose then to disappear when I needed them? Why then would they think it was alright for THEM to go riding and leave me behind after disappearing? Yeah, that would make mme really really mad. So inconsiderate and selfish.
