    Bad was good when I was a young age. Then I became a Christian and it spoiled all that. Thanks for all the birthday greetings everyone.

    As age has crept up on me I have forgoten a lot of the stories I used to tell. Some funny, some smutty, and some worth reading, and the odd tear jerker.

    I also stopped playing my guitar but the other day after a memory lapse you wont believe what I forgot. Have you ever been working around the house, go out into the garage for a tool and stand there wondering why and what you went to the garage for. I have found that it is not really a bad thing because. In order to remember you have to go back to the start (the house) refresh the memory and walk out to the garage again to get the tool you want. They call that exercise all that walking back and forth.

    There is a name for what I have described but the memory lapse effects other aspects of ones life. First it affects the right side of the brain the part that does the reasoning and deals with the serious stuff. Have you noticed when watching TV you don't remember the show, there is a name for it. Alzhiemers, don't knock it, it has its high points. I never have to sit through a re-run on TV. Also, I never wake up with the same women in the morning. I have to ask her her name.

    Back to the guitar, playing music or art, special talents, that is the left side of the brain. Not sure if that is effected by whether one is left or right handed, never mind. I picked up the guitar, tuned it up then sat there wondering what to do next, then slowly it started to come back, first one song then another, improving all the time and then it happend. A joke popped into my mind. So now I have the right side which gives me a surprise every morning. Can't wait to get to bed.
    The left side music and jokes. So look out.

    Stella had new shoes put on today, kate had a pedicure. Roslyn said she felt stupid filling out two checks, so she used one of mine to pay the total bill.

    Foal
    I am 47 and from the time I could talk I wanted to ride horses, I came from a non horsey family and it took a few years of nagging my parents before they took me for lessons at the age of 6. They could never afford to buy a horse for me and I promised myself that I would get my own when I started work and at 18 I did have a Welsh Sect D X Arab/TB that I adored. She was 3. When she was 15 we bred from her to a full TB stallion and had a lovely filly foal that I still have now rising 20 and retired. Now also have an 11 year old Welsh Sect D and 3 American miniatures. Can't imagine a life without horses and will certainly always have miniatures.

    Good morning everyone! Just a little rant...I'm so tired of it either raining of being frigging COLD! I have today and tomorrow off work and it has been raining for almost 4 days. Now it's not raining, but it went from the 70's to the mid 30's overnight. Grrrr! Want to go ride my boy, but the cold hurts my bones. AND he's covered in mud. I am enjoying being a part of this forum. I've been reading much more than I have been posting, and I really like the way you guys have a connection and care about each other.

    Hi everyone. Just popped in for a few minutes catching up on everyone. I have a good memory. Its just very short. We finally got up into the fourties yesterday here. Talk about a heat wave. But even as warm as that is its still to darn cold for me to run out and feed the horses barefooted. And legged. Thought I was going die after I ran in the house and set on my fire place. I didnt know that some under garments melt when setting on hot objects. Hmmm so you see. You can teach a old dog new tricks. Ride safe

    Add me to the list of people sick and tired of the cold and wet weather.

    Scuffy continues to improve and has been put back out in the pasture with his buddies. Unfortunately, one of his buddies developed severe colic Monday night and had to be put down. He was a TB that has two previous colic surgeries and even had about 15 feet of his intestines removed a couple of years ago. When he had this latest attack, the owner knew he had been through enough and the hard decision was made.

    This is the 5th horse I know that has been put down due to colic this winter. (not all in the same boarding place but all within a 30 miles radius) I was afraid Scuffy was going to be 6. It was explained to me that the wide variations in temperature can affect horses this way. One day it is 65 degrees and sunny and the next we have a high of 28. As a new horse owner, this terrifies me.

    Spring can not get here too soon.

    Heading to the mud pit, I mean farm, after work today. Looks like my nice new car is about to be covered in lovely red clay mud. :(. Oh well, it can't stay clean forever.
