    After I took the photo I walked down towards the lake and noticed he had a lady friend in the woods off to the left. At first I thought maybe he was hurt or something.

    Was piling up some rubbish to be burnt this morning and Bugs was in a adjactent paddock. He spotted me and came on down to the fence line and followed me back and forth as I took in load after load of burnable material. He gave the ocassional nicker, so of course I responded in kind. He cocked his head to one side so I figure my attempt at horse talk failed.
    But I was chuffed he came down to the fence and kept me company. Stella. She paid no attention what so ever.

    I piled the wood and bits and pices high and lit the fire. Then it happened, this big old black cloud rolled over head and started to douse the flame with water. Its not much, but it is keeping the ground moist. And by the time it has taken to write this the B rain has stopped, oh well, perhaps its a precurser of what is to come.


    Since bugs has taken an interest in me today I will return the gesture in kind. As Stella has ignored me. I will annoy her by giving her a brushing.

    CW, how is Marc, body adapting to the change in work style.

    Where is AlexS. Do I have to go over to the dark side again and retrieve her.

    Good photos, can't compete with the criter photos the only wild thing in my neck of the woods is me. Criter sitter I take it husband is in the bad books, you were not pleased. Being a dutifull husband myself, being knee deep and at times deeper in the poo is normal, Its like water off a ducks back. To me it represents peace and quiet for a time 3, 4 days may be longer

    Hey guys, I'm hoping to ride before the leaves fall off the trees. Oh, that's right. There aren't any leaves yet because we don't have Spring yet. We got over 10 inches of snow last night. Wet, heavy snow. Again. It's supposed to be the coldest night in April here, since 1888. Yep. Living the dream here. I'm going to drive Teddy tomorrow, if I have to swim or ski to him & he as to wear snow shoes, or water wings!
    I finally figured out how to put pictures on my album. Still can't figure out how to put them here. Take a peek at my album and see Lars Ulrich, my coming 2 year old if you have a chance.
    I'm so jealous of everyone who's riding now. Have a great weekend!

    Taffy,

    That is a nice looking Buck. Nice grounds he is on as well.


    Critter,

    How did the ride go? What about the daughter's activity? Hear how it went? Oh and as Stan mentioned, we hubbys tend to enjoy those breaks from attention when knee deep in poo due to tainting our DW's desires of us.

    Nine,

    Let us see video of this snow swimming ability of yours, perty please.

    To upload pics to this thread just click on the Go Advanced button just below the type section, click on the paper clip in the top portion of the box, choose photo, click upload, exit out of that menu box, click on the paper clip again and click the photo link. Done.



    Got a call last evening from the woman that was helping me work with Boo, before his incident, about another friend who is is a bad way with their horses. She mentioned the QH to me a bit ago as a potential riding project that needed fed, but apparently hadn't been out to see how bad of shape.

    We both get off work at 3 today and plan to go look her and a mini over and figure if we do get them then I'll have to put them in the middle pasture of the new property I just cleared since it has the barn with stalls and protection. I'll try to remember to take the camera and get pics.

    This is the same people she said had some really good saddles they were needing to sell cheap to try and help out. I was wondering if it would be unethical to ask about getting some of the tack for taking the horses for them? The QH is/was broke to ride and was ridden regularly so if she is able to get healthy she could be ridden again, hopefully.



    Just early morning jibberish rolling in vastly empty noggin.

    Stan I just read your post saying you got a little more moisture. Is it just enough to settle the dust or is it soaking into the ground pretty quickly? I remember you saying it's dry way down into the ground.

    Did Stella show her discontent for the attention at grooming? Can you post more pics of them?
