I've ditched you all for the 30s thread. Sorry guys.

I'll still check in from time to time for Stan's jokes, but you ladies talk a lot, so it's hard to keep up.

I'll be back full time in 2.5 years. :)

Howdy all,
I should be in bed, as I have to work tomorrow.
Full force blizzard here--weather guessers say expect 12 to 16 inches of snow and high winds for my area.

You should call in from time to time that way you will know how to behave when you hit the magic number in two and a half years. We will miss you. But young and wild we understand.

And on a final note what have the thirties got the we havn't.

You are looking at it backwards, Stan..

Should be asking what we have that the 30's don't which is running you off?

I say it's our higher level of maturity for the couple extra years on them. Lol

I think that our wisdom and maturity is intimidating to the youngsters.

Hi all! I've been check in' in real quick here and there, but have been busy shopping!!! For the horse of course! FINALLY the big Equine Affaire in Columbus, OH has arrived! Not only did I get out of dodge, I got to spend the entire day surrounded by horse people, horses, and horse products!!!! 😆😋😜

I picked up a bridle for Rainn...so you know what I will be doing when I finally make it home,,,,,RIDING!!!! We looked and looked at saddles, but I have three possibilities coming to me when my new horse, Ginger arrives, so we decided to wait on that....so many choices with a saddle, and not sure what to choose.....thoughts on the saddle situation?

Anyway, back to shopping.....I bought a new pair of ropers to ride in, a couple tops, the two bridles, a shiny, sparkly belt (oooolalala) 😙. There was SO much to look at! So very much fun!!! We shopped and watched two clinics ALL day long! Got to,watch a breed thingy on Rocky Mountain horses (Ginger is a Kentucky Mountain horse) very cool!!!

Hey With Grace! Congrats on all of your accomplishments!!! 😃

Funny about all the talk about weather....I have a friend who travels extensively aroundnthenworld for work.. He always comments how people who live in a permenant location are defined by the weather....but it is so true isn't it???? The weather determines what we can do...how we feel, etc. 😕 those of you still with snow....I feel for you....we got a taste of spring here, but it's back to being colder here.....ugh!

But regardless....I'm heading home today, throwing that new bridle on Rainn and going for a bareback ride!!!!😃😃😃😃😃😃

Have a great day everyone!

With Grace,
I'm so thrilled with your great day! I can just imagine that you're as pleased with the no-drama trailering all by your big girl self, as you are with the ribbons! Way to go - your hard work paid off. Congratulations!

AlexS, I second Stan's invitation to check in once and a while. You don't have to keep up with the thread, just let us know how you're doing. We like you.

Where are you moving your horses CS
we are moving to another boarding place. The one we are at now the BM is moving and the BO decided to up board by $25 and she bought CRP hay for the horses when there was Great hay she turned down for a dollar more. I would have gladly paid more if the hay and the attitude was not there

the new place is not quite as nice "older place" and no indoor but the guy is great and he gets great hay.

We entered 6 classes and placed in all. Two firsts, a third, two fourths and a fifth. All were big classes and I'm super proud of what Kes and I accomplished today. We completely clicked as a team, and it feels wonderful.

The biggest accomplishment of the day though was that I hauled my own horse to and from the show. All by myself....and Kes once again had no trailering issues. I think we have both conquered our fears of the trailer!
