    News flash! I think I have found the ever elusive season named: Spring. I guess it actually found me but who cares it's here! No more of the four letter word that shall not be named! Thank you to all that sent Spring my way!

    My Travel Plans for 2013-2014


    I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently,you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

    I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

    I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work

    I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

    I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

    I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

    Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

    One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

    I may have been in Continent, and I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

    PLEASE DO YOUR PART!

    Today is one of the many National Mental Health Days throughout the year.

    You can do your bit by remembering to send an e-mail to at least one unstable person. My job is done!

    Life is too short for negative drama and petty things. So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

    From one unstable person to another... I hope everyone is happy in your head - we're all doing pretty well in mine!

    Well, my DW found out yesterday evening why I still do not hard tie Boo when working with him and it was a painful lesson for her.
    She decided to doctor him before I got home so we could work on getting all the rotten, nail filled lumber out of the other pasture so we could turn the horses out on it. She had him hard tied to exterior of one of the stall wall boards. All was well UNTIL she went to squirt eye drops in his weeping eye. He found the end of the slack and ripped the board clear off the barn and slap her in the right ear with it as it went by her. I was on my way out there from the house when I heard the commotion. I ran to where I could see and there was Boo trotting away from the barn with board in tow and the wife sitting Indian with hand cupping her ear.

    Broke the skin real good about half way up the ear to just before the canal and gave her a serious wake up call. She kept saying he had been fine all the days before with being tied like that. I explained until he stops head jerking completely while being tied to be worked on then he should never be hard tied.

    She always tries to one up me and this time it cost her. I guess she thought he was letting her hard tie him because he " loves" her, haha. He had just been worked with enough to the point he wasn't finding the end of the lead before I could settle him down while NOT being hard tied just in case. I must admit that I did give her a ribbing for not listening to me about how to handle the horses, with a smile as she sat there in pain.

    This morning while she was making my breakfast and lunch I kept leaning to her left side to talk to her and that really got her goat...I CAN HEAR out of that ear, it just hurts.. I asked if she wanted me to kiss it and make it better.



    My rib hurts a little now.

    My mare will stand tied, and she will let me treat things like sore eyes, ears, etc. She won't do both at the same time. If I am going to do something that could be remotely frightening, I don't tie her because she may panic and go psycho if she is tied. She will usually stand pretty well just so she doesn't feel trapped.

    I have tried to explain that to her til I'm out of breathe. She is even more stubborn that I am when we are trying to show how to do something. Lol

    Roadyy Be nice to the DW.. your lucky its just your rib that hurts I would have dotted your eye ;)

    You May try this ... get a Rubber innertube and tie it good and tight to a secured post
    Tie the horse to the innertube and let him teach himself that he needs to behave and stand still being tied..
    That being said I never tie when giving meds I either ground tie or let someone hold for me.

    Wow Roady hope your wife will be OK.

    Had an awesome awesome awesome ride yesterday. Went to barn (have been feeling kind of blah about barn/Hunter this week) wasn't even going to ride. BO's son came and asked if I wanted to go for a trail ride. OK I'll try it. Last few times I went out trail riding it turned into a sideways run/rearing session so was a tad apprehensive. I went out the gate and Hunter was like "OK Where we going!!!!" Didn't even hesitate, ended up going for an hour and a half, the only time he gave me any attitude is when we turned around on the trail, it seems he wasn't ready to go home.
