    Well, heading out to the party shortly and then home to work with my daughters and a couple of the horses. May run up to Jeffers Pet in Dothan tomorrow after church to look at saddle pads.
    Hope everyone has a great weekend and will talk to you later.

    Howdy everyone.

    Busy with housework today, as it's my day off. No rest for the wicked.

    Got my upstairs bathroom painted this morning. Now I have to get it put back together and clean the rest of the house.

    We have a ranch style house that was built in the mid 50s. In it's early days, I suppose it was fancy schmancy. Now it's in constant need of work. Ah well, lucky for my husband that I am not into frills. Plain, simple, and clean work for me.

    Only having 50 sq yards of green grass on the place I have been allowing the horses to have a nibble every other day. Yesterday was Bugs turn. Stella did her normal rumble when he was let in and paced the fence line demonstrating her annoyance. Bugs was head down ass up eating. Me, well I was working on the old float improving its looks so as to make it more attractive to a prospective buyer.

    Roslyn walked by and I heard her mumble, should try some of the preperations on yourself. Her expression was flat, no emotion. Must be missing Kate I thought, and let the remark go. Well to be honest, let it go, no. Stored for a later date.

    Bugs had his munch and come time to go back into the paddock I called him. He came up to me and started to follow me into the paddock and as soon as he saw me begin to close the gate, as quick as a flash he rushed past, back to where we started.

    I followed and he put his head down and walked just fast enough to slip past me each time I got to him. Then I had a brain wave. I yelled holt, and he did. Don't know why I did not do that right at the start, most likely because I was being entertained by his antics trying to stay with the grass. I took hold of him by the halter, turned him, started walking and he put in a pig root. (thats a little skip, hop and rear end buck) without any real issue. Into the paddock try and close the gate and he rushed past me again. Determined little flarker.

    I won, he tried to push the gate open but settled down. SOOO lots of ground work required. He is to follow me at all times (which he normally does).

    Stella. She has cut her leg just on top of the hoof. Looks like she has tried to get the gate open and lifted a large amount of flesh off. Now she is chewing on it to remove the flap. ****, now I need a vet to come in and trim the wound and I doubt it will have healed enough to go on the trek next week. I swear that horse has a 6th sence and knows just when the treks are on, and then screws it up. Can"t take Bugs he needs some miles on him. Boy time to pull him back into line.

    Well I did talk about my horse to keep in with the thread, or rambled more like.

    Hey, forgot to mention. Two nights ago a possum got into the house in the early morning hours. It came in through a kitchen window, made its way into the bed room and climbed onto the bed. Roslyn thought it was Ernie and started to kick him around. When Ernie gets on the bed its play time. Then she thought its a little heavy, opened her eyes and looked straight into the eyes of the possum which let out an allmighty scream and jumped off the bed. I have had the same reaction looking into the eyes of my beloved in the early hours too.

    She chased the possum back out the window it came in. Ill trap and dispose of it later This possum has entertainment value.

    Cheers all.

    On the off chance I may get into trouble for this one but here goes.
    For the over 40 and those that take offence, I am sorry and will head for the corner now.

    THE INDIAN WITH ONE TESTICLE


    There once was an Indian who had only one testicle, and whose given name was 'Onestone'. He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him Onestone.

    After years and years of torment, Onestone finally cracked and said,
    'If anyone calls me Onestone again I will kill them!'

    The word got around and nobody called him that any more. Then one day a young woman named Blue Bird forgot and said, 'Good morning, Onestone.'

    He jumped up, grabbed her and took her deep into the forest where he made love to her all day and all night.

    He made love to her all the next day, until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.

    The word got around that Onestone meant what he promised he would do.

    Years went by and no one dared call him by his given name until a woman named Yellow Bird returned to the village after being away.

    Yellow Bird, who was Blue Bird's cousin, was overjoyed when she saw Onestone.

    She hugged him and said, 'Good to see you, Onestone.'

    Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest, then he made love to her all day, made love to her all night, made love to her all the next day, made love to her all the next night, but Yellow Bird wouldn't die!

    What is the moral of this story?????



    OH, Come on...take a guess!



    Think about it............



    (You're going to love this!)



    Very simply, the moral is..................



    YOU CAN'T KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE!!!!




    Hahahahahahaha

    Stan,
    Sorry to hear bout Stella but appreciate the information about the Holiday Inn, getting real close to that milestone myself. Always enjoy the stories and jokes.

    Ok, can anyone take pity on me and the pony? The Manuka honey came today but what exactly now do I do with it? Her stitches have been removed and now the skin flap is lifting up and away in places revealing raw looking like red meat areas.looks like she may lose that skin flap, was hoping not. Do I put honey on the open wound or just around the edges of the skin? Do I need to cover the wound somehow? Its not an area you can wrap, maybe extra large self stick dressings would work. The vet said to hose it but I've read on here that hosing after the initial cleaning stimulates the growth of proud flesh.

    Critter Sitter, good looking horse and daughter. Y'all have a good time!
    Corgi, hope your power's back on. That's miserable. We've been lucky with the winter storms in NC, but won't be long and hurricane season will be here.
    Everybody enjoy the rest of your weekend, got to go to childs birthday party later today. Well I love cake and if I take along a twitch for the four year old granddaughter it might be a good time:) Happy Trails!

    Oobie, just keep the wound clean, treat with antiseptic, and the skin will grow back. Hair may or may not grow back, but the wound will close. What are your vet's recommendations for treatment?

    Put the manuka honey straight on the wound and cover. Has it got the + number on it I mentioned before. And is it dark in colour. If it does not have the + number just use it for breakfast The real macoy has that number on the lable.

    Last thing you want is the horse licking the wound and developing a tast for the honey. It may ask for toast as well
