Token - wow Roslyn has a great talent!! Beautiful paintings! Be careful posting around here, as the amount of commissioned work wanted around here is huge and then you'd have to come clean to "she who must" that you posted them here.

Cacow - is AZ getting any warmer for you?

Alex - I'm glad it's not just me...I forget my age as well as how many years I've been married constantly...the years all blend together.
Man flu how did you find the corner its a round room and i'm still looking.
Paintings she does them from photos the one of the barrell racer is from a photo.

Last year she did one of a cowboy but his face was not shown. His mother saw the painting at a show here in Daraville recognised the horse and her son frame and brought the painting.

Ok. So we walk around our horse and pick up the droppimgs which are the product of the expensive alfalfa that we feed it. Which of us is the dumbest?

Speaking of that, I have another candidate for the world's smartest horse. My daughter Makenzie has a big grey thoroughbred mare. Makenzie loves the horse but she is not the friendliest thing in the world; not aggressive but in a standoffish kind of way. Makenzie is the coach for our high school horse team and was at a three day show. She asked my son Lee to clean and feed while she is gone. He is not a horse person being more into his dog and hiking, climbing and computers. He came over for dinner last night after cleaning. We have had a slow thaw and the paddocks are covered with a cold soup mixture of urine, manure and slushy water. Lee said he was bent over picking up a pile of manure when Sway, the horse came up behind him and gave him a big nudge with her nose. He said it pushed him off balance and he was falling foreward. He reached out and grabbed the first thing handy, anything to keep from falling on his face. He grabbed the electro braid with both hands that goes around the paddocks. Lee said he got jolted twice before he let go of it but that it stood him right up straight again. He has enough of a sense of humor that he called his sister on her cell to tell her about it.

I may have told this story once before but it is funny. I had a client whose husband was not a horse person but he was very good about supporting her hobby. They had some acreage and he was putting up a hot wire around a field for her horses. When he came in for lunch he asked. "How do you test the fence to see if it is working?"

"Oh you just touch it," his wife playfully replied. Later in the afternoon when he came back in the first thing he said was, "Holy mother Mary of Jesus! There's got to be a better way!"
