Woke up early this morning (thats always a plus when your over 40) I am not going on the trek (tears from me, bucks of joy displayed by Stella)

I am going to the agricultural show that is a yearly event on our town. Seems that Roslyn sneeked in yesterday while I was at work. I walked in the door after work and was greeted with. I saw the new horse trailer I want.!!!!

Now being a man that has been around for a number of years and most of those years married, know, through experience, what, I want means $$$$$.

I said how much are you going to put towards the trailer, no answer, that means she is serious and its going to cost me.
I'll buy a lotto ticket for tonights draw. It might get lucky. If I win lotto I might get lucky. I know off to the corner for that one.

Kate: we had a person look at kate at the beginning of the week he knows his horses. He checked her out then with out warning jumped on her bare back the look of surprise on kates face was priceless and in the bridle rode her around. Then he saddled her and had a reasonable ride. He came back for another look yesterday and is coming back again next friday for a ride over the farm. He has asked we hold her untill he has had a reasonable ride. On the first day he said to me not to sell Kate, but that's not my decision. He knows about the pig root she puts in now and again. Like me he knows she has to be ridden through it to show her its not the done thing. Funny thing Kate is a very verbal horse and always talking. She was quiet when he was here.

This guy knows kates breding and the person who broke her in. He is coming back for the third time. Most likely kate will be gone at the end of the week. I will miss that horse and shed a tear or two when she goes. Well of to the show now and look at the trailer Roslyn has set her sights on.

Stan,
Sounds like this guy wants Kate. I know it's hard to part with her...but it sounds like she would be in a decent place. Suggestion.....if he buys her, cut a deal with him that if he ever decides he doesn't want to or cannot keep her, you get first option to buy her back. How does that sound?

I had to miss our local at show the past two years in a row due to having to work. Dang it. The at show is held right across from my place of employment, and all I could do was look longingly across the parking lot.

Corgi? You doing OK? How's Scruffy?

Summer, I love to see saddles! Pics are a must.
My favorite is my Hereford Monte Foreman balanced ride roper. It's a 70's model. Comfort!!!!
