    It will grow back-did you tell her you want your horses to "look natural"?

    ACK!!!! That poor horse, I have had people tell me I should cut Hunters forelock. NO WAY!!! He has an awesome one. My trainer had one of her leasers do that to one of her mares, she was furious.

    Wind is blowing about 35 mph out there. Cold and gray, freezing rain forecasted the next several days.
    My farrier came to my place today. Got the horses trimmed and re-shod the two that get shoes. I de-wormed them also. Critters got lots of TLC today.

    Tomorrow I will go to the vet and pick up rabies boosters. Two rabid skunks in the area already this year. One man opened the door and walked into hid shop and a skunk attacked him. Bit his leg up. The skunk tested positive for rabies.
    I am so glad I vaccinate my critters.

    A Lady ran a red light and schmucked my truck last week. My beloved 2000 GMC ext cab Sierra 3/4 ton. I just put a new factory motor and tranny in it 33,551 miles ago. Trying to decide what to do.

    Rose-how bad does your truck look? Did it bend the frame? What does insurance say? Can you have the option of putting your engine & tranny in another truck? Maybe one that has a blown engine? What part of your truck got damaged?

    Maybe it will grow back, but look at the look on his face he may never get over the psychological trauma of that style of fringe. Or is that the latest in the Egyptian look. The joke on divorce verses murder comes to mind. If Roslyn cut stella's forelock in such a way I would move her into the sleep out. Only for a few days though, I'd begin to miss her.

    Talking about Stella she has begun playing up when going into the new float. She went in a couple of days ago and now is refusing. I took her aside and pointed out the benefits of doing as I asked, but that fell on deaf ears. Bugs on the other hand stomped his feet, did a little rear, (thats a first) then in he went so today I'll take hin for a ride and get him used to the sounds and smells. Next stage is to get him loading on any side. That will be a mission some training required to get him used to either side. Saddling is going to be the same as well as mounting from both sides. I'll get the trainer back to bring Stella back into line on the loading ussuethen get Roslyn riding her so she stays in work and does not gain to much weight. (Stella I mean, not Roslyn)

    The rain has stopped again, but the odd shower is forcast to be passing through.

    Cheers all and get out there and ride. Even if it means wearing long Johns.

    Glad I don't have to deal with rabid animals, the closest thing we get to rabid is a nutbar who has used a little to much.

    The truck, If that was in NZ I would be looking at pulling the chassis straight and doing the repairs. A new factory engine and trans would be $12,000 Worth pulling the body straight or doing a deal with the insurance company and buy the wreck back of them and do a transplant.

    Stan,
    That's what my hubby says, bout my truck. I'm leaning in that direction too. Not sure if the frame is bent yet as it hasn't been put on the hoist. Idiot red light runner's insurance adjustor laid under it and wrote his estimate. They call it total led as the dollar damage is more than half of book value. My shop guy is going to do an estimate---he thinks it's fixable but can't say for sure til he does a proper evaluation.
    The drive train was torn clean off.

    Yessiree--Stan--you are goooood. 12G is what I put in it! Her insurance company offered me a deal of 10G---calling it 8G for book value on truck and 2100 towards motor and tranny. Not enough!

    Cacao, she nailed me where cab meets box, slightly behind. She was in an old Bonneville. It s toast. Lots of witnesses on the scene. She blew through that light like a streak of lightening. I saw her coming but had no where to go--car in front of and car behind me.
