    over 40

    Hello.
    I guess I fall in this catagory....I will be 41 in April. I have two horses and one that I consider mine as I look after him everyday. My first horse is a 12yr old Arabian Gelding named Kupid, second horse is a Yearling Appaloosa Gelding named Liam the third is a Quarter horse named Smoke. I have always loved horses my entire life! I used to pretend I was a horse when I was little. My family raised Anglo Arabians many years ago, but moved to town when I was 7yrs old. I got my first horse when I was 15 she was a Arabian Quarter horse cross. I was kind of a bratty kid so my dad sold her on me. I stayed away from horses until I was 36yrs old because I knew if I got near them again I would be addicted. They are the best medicine to keep you real. You can't lie to a horse.....They are real people watchers and let you know exactly what your about on any given day. People have said they would never ride my Arabian because he is unpredictable but I would trust him with my life, he is a good honest boy. I am just starting ground work with my Appy and he is doing great. What a difference between the two breeds. One is sensitive the other is what ever...If you want know more about us just ask!

    It will take some time she left an impression and each time one goes out to feed the animals there is one less. Roslyn will hold it in where I have two horses to tend to. Myself I was not riding Kate so the attachment was not as strong as it is for Ros.\

    Horses do get to you. I'v had dogs cats and other wild critters but a horse that responds. That is a different kettle of fish. I look at the two I have and notice their personalities.

    Stella is aloof, the matriarch, and lays her ears back at me, however I can take her head rest it on my shoulder and scratch her cheek then she suddenly moves away as if to say, I'm not the kind of girl. And a contradiction she loves her inner back legs being scratched.

    Bugs he is being demanding and demonstrates his impatients. I can see i'm in for a ride in the next couple of days, he has got energy to burn, Anyone interested in hoping over here and take the sting out of Bugs for me. I believe super glue on the saddle may be required. Ill have a medical crew on stand by.

    Roslyns cell just rang with a message I asked what it was she said, it said its ladies international day. Why send it here I asked.

    Off to the corner again I'm taking a blanket with me. It got cold all of a sudden. Could be a couple of days for that one.

    Now here is a new take on uses a horse trailer/float.

    Now I have reached that certan age where one has to consider life as we know it does end. I was talking to Roslyn about the cost of a funeral and what I consider the waist of money. Talking money always sparks interest in my wife and the fact I have purchased a new float (pictures at the end of the month) and have an alternative use for it when the time comes.

    Why pay mega bucks when she can back the float up to the morge, stuff me into a card board box, and then drive me to the crematorium, get me tosted, the remains in a small glass jar. Back into the back of the float and a trip home.
    Get the kids around for a beer and BBQ and scatter the ashes, partly on the land and partly on the ocean. I used to own a commercial fishing boat. That's the connection to the sea.

    Now, other than the purchase price of the Float it should be a cheep send off. $100 for the cardboad box, $600 for a small service and fire, $100 for fuel and a bring your own drink and a plate for the BBQ.

    I think she could get out of it for under a grand. Works for me. How say you all.

    Stan, the only thing that could make that sendoff better would be to take your last "ride' home in your jar, tucked inside Stella's saddlebag....

    Stan, that sounds just like what a Kiwi or an Aussie would think about doing, I think us aussies and you kiwis are a lot alike.
