    Hey everyone...not much to say. I just don't like when our thread ends up on the 2nd page. LOL

    Rode Isabella again today...this time in my Aussie saddle. Uses a totally different set of leg muscles than my western saddle. Ouch.

    One of the mares at the farm is about to have her foal. Pretty exciting! We may have a huge winter storm on Wednesday. She'll probably wait until then to have it.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    Critter Sitter I may have missed something how did the trailer loading go in the end and did my method of tackling the horse work for you.

    I know it is not very nice of me to make light of a horse problem and I do feel your anguish I had the same problem with Stella. And I still have Stella and Bugs but today sadness has fallen on this home. Kate has been sold and will be gone by the end of the week.

    I will miss that horse a lot. Comforting thought for Roslyn, the buyer is a good owner and will eventually trek with us. A friend of ours has a older horse Roslyn can use and keep at home so she gets to keep her hand in so to speak.

    To console myself I am very serious about buying a new horse trailer. Roslyn can not go on many treks for the coming year due to her taking on a job in the weekends. HOWEVER I can go to the treks on my own

    My mustang was AWEFUL to load. Took the help of a friend's cowboy nephew. She is soooo easy to load now.
    I practiced and took her for rides in the trailer a whole summer and fall.
    So, instead of putting miles on my horse with me on her back, I put miles on my pickup, trailer, and horse by hauling her. Lol.
    (put miles on riding her, too.)

    Sorry I didn't update here. We got her in. Or rather my daughter did. I have. Thread I posted here and many had great advice. But in the end. It was my daughter and her alone that did it.
    Bre was in the trailer had lead rope on one hand and lariat int the other with the loop around her rump. And she said with all she could muster she more or less coaxed And pues her In. The. The BM shut the door and bre climed out the window. I didn't get home till almost 2 last night after driving the 8 hours to the new owners. I would love to stay home today but I need to work.
