Its the area BBQ down at the kai Iwi lakes on thursday an annual event for the local cow cockies to get together and one lone probation officer, government employee. I get a little stick over the government employee thing, they claim I get paid to much to which I reply we are going for a 15 percent increase in January that really causes a hate session but I counter with I'm the only person between their kids and the local sex offenders. That generally quitens them down untill next year. They don't know how true my statment is. And if that does not work, I point out the only reason they don't get robbed is I live amoungst them. Another beer, a prawn or two, thick steak cooked rear, salad, baked potato in its jacket another beer, mouth full of steak another beer and so on. No desert, no room to much beer.

My plans for christmas day if the weather is fine, pack a lunch and ride Bugs along the beach, of course my wife can join me. I mean, who would do the dishes afterwards.

Off to the corner again after that one.

And on leaving what do you, for christmas, buy the women that has every thing her heart could ever wish for, after all, she has me so what is left to top that.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

WE have snow, too.
Stan-sounds like a fun day-enjoy that steak. Have fun w/Bugs on the beach-hope your wife joins you. Does she maybe like a foot massage or a back rub?


We've had a few days of cold & I am so done w/it. And it's not even officially winter yet. Warm thoughts to all & Merry Christmas!

No snow here but it is cold tonight.

I haven't been posting because it seems like my only horse talk is about my latest lesson. However, lessons have been going really well. I'm learning to get the horse "on the bit", have him relax his throat-latch and engage his hind. It seems very complicated at this point with 30 things to do at once but I can sort of tell that it could become innate. I've also been able to get a much more collected canter, and out of different horses with different levels of training.

Last weekend my trainer let me just ride a rescue pony that they use for lessons. He's a sturdy adorable little guy but he doesn't know much of anything. I'm going to try to get him going straight as he's quite wiggly and manages to trot shoulder-first if he wants to turn in a different direction than you. Will get someone to snap a photo of me on this fancy steed. They think he's a Connemara cross and he's a cool-looking sooty buckskin color.

I'm off to NJ after this week and won't be back in NYC until 12/30 so in case I don't get to the thread, Happy Holidays to all. Be blessed and hug your horses (and other loved ones).

It was 56 and sunny here today but a cold front is moving in tonight and we won't be seeing 50 degrees again for a while. I stopped by on the way home and put Isabella's midweight blanket on her. I have worked too hard to get her to a healthy weight and don't want her to shiver any of it off!

I was going to ride a little but by the time I got to the farm and got most of the mud off of her, it was dark. I just let her graze on what grass there is left and let her enjoy the time out of her field. I never have to worry about her leaving the farm. She is so happy when I let her graze outside her field. It is a good thing she is white...it was pitch dark when I went to find her to put her back!

One of the trainers has a 4 year old paint cross. We think he has some draft or percheron in him...the more he fills out, the more he resembles one of the larger breeds. He was a nurse mare foal and was adopted from a rescue that specializes in them. The last 3 Wednesday nights, she has been working with him in the round
Pen. I enjoy watching the two of them. She has ridden him once, but then she got pregnant and had a baby so she is starting over.

I work half a day on Friday and then don't have to go back to work until Jan. 3rd. I really hope I am able to ride a lot during my time off. I hope the weather cooperates. I hate the cold. Probably because I was born in Florida!!!!

It got to 70 degrees here today. I love the south in the winter. Next August, not so much.

This is the over 40s we talk about any thing so stick your thoughts out there and if a horse is in the conversation that's great.

Have a great xmas, don't eat to much, remember your horse has to carry the christmas cheer

Bright & sunny in AZ today, but cold! Before I went to bed last night, DH rolled over to let 1 cat out of the room & his cat was lying on my side under the covers! She was fine, but they were both very surprised. There is still some snow sticking in the shaded areas. I'm about ready for a hot cup of something!

Hay, I haven't been posting much because I have dialup and keep getting disconnected all the time. Hope everyone and your critters are doing well.
Almost ready for Christmas here... well the tree is up :) and I delivered presents to friends and some family today. We're suppose to get a big winter storm tomorrow so I got around to visit this afternoon.
