Cocoa, they will sell my truck back to me for 1800.
I cannot replace it with another 3/4 ton with 33,500 miles on it for under 30 to 40 G.
Sad sad sad.
Her adjustor even put in his paperwork that my truck was in exceptional condition. I am neurotic about taking care of my vehicles.

I do want to fix mine if it looks like my shop feels it is doable. I don't want a mega thousand dollar loan on a new one. Dammit.

It looks like I will be battling her insurance for a better offer. She has Progressive..and they are buggers. Flo is not nice.

Oh, that is really bad. I hope they can come around & see it from your point of view.

The back wheels aren't supposed to turn like that. Box is pulled at an angle away from cab. Tailgate jimmied out of whack. Drivetrain laying on ground. Side panel scrunched in. Springs broken. Wheel trashed. And more stuff messed up.

Hi all! Phew! What a week! Crazy busy here, and when I have a moment....I'm dog tired, so I don't have the energy to post....

Well, I have some news....I believe I mentioned that I have decided to return the little, young QH that wa striven to me...she's a bit much for me. Needs too much training...a bit of a nut....😛😳

Therefore, I wanted another one to keep my old girl company ....and I found her!!!! And bought her!!!! 😜 She's a Kuntucky Mountain horse, straight from Kentucky! A friend of mine has a friend who had a horse....sounds like a good story starter doesn't it? I was actually trying to help her sell it to a coworker of mine when I thought.....why don't I buy her? So within 4 hours of start to finish I bought her! She is 12 years old, and very calm, and used to many different elements out on the trail. I think we will be a good match!!! Happy Birthday to me!!!😄


I attempted to attach a picture of her....well see how my skills are.....anyway, I am thrilled to the bone to have found something!!!!😍 I'm to get her at the end of the month!

Boarding

Ugh, I earlier had mentioned that I was shocked that so many people boarded their horses...and pleased that I had my horses at my moms....well maybe I spoke too soon!!!

Lately, every time I go over to my mom's place her husband wigs out about something! Like tonight....like someone else posted...one of my horses broke the fence and went into the other pasture...really no big deal, and I said I would be over...I don't know what occurred by the time I made it over, but he was all wigged out again and stomping around mad.....the horse was fine, thank goodness, and the fence is fixable....relax!!!! Gosh, this guy is driving me crazy! I go over to be with the horses to RELAX! He makes me feel so uncomfortable....I never know when he is going to blow...he tries to contain himself when I am around, but you can just feel the tension.....I wish he would just stay away.....ok enough of my vent....😜

Thank you Rose! I think so! I will have to learn about gaited horses! I've only had QH, thoroughbreds, or Belgiums. My friends swear by gaited horses for trail riding. That's what I will using her for.
