Today,22nd is our 35th anniversary, it has been a great time with many more to come.

Critter Sitter, sorry for your loss of your grandfather, it is hard when you lose loved family members.

Roaddy, how many horses have you got?

We have 8 money eaters, and we have 100 acres for them.

Stan, I am glad you're getting rain, we desperately need it here where we live in NSW.

35yrs congrats

We are doing well at least some rain each day at present and the grass is coming back, but in other areas flooding.
Two men have been hit by lightening, they survived however one of the two was going to get a horse and take it into shelter when they both got hit, the horse did not survive.

A few years ago on a horse trek was in our area and riding over a place we call the bluff a high point in our landscape. During a rain storm one of the riders was hit by lightening. They did not survive. That was before I got the trekking bug. I wonder if the steel horse shoes have any thing to do with survival.

One of the survivers was wearing rubber boots the other was sitting on a quad bike and I assume the horse had steel shoes on. I wonder if the horse had of been bare foot, would it have survived, or no difference shoes on or off.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

I have my wife downloading more pics this morning that she took with the camera and will download later.



sunset,

Congrats on eating the same bowl of cereal every morning for the 35 some odd years..lol

We now have 7 on the property, but some are temporary as I have no need for a mini and a couple of the horses are going to be finding new homes at some point this year. I'm not in a huge hurry, but I don't need that many horses.

Stan,
I'm glad to see you are still getting rain and praying the grass comes in strong well before the cold sets in.
I have to say that the metal shoes giving a solid "Ground" for the lightning to pass through to the earth ground is likely the cause of no chance to survive. Imagine wearing a pair of metal shoes buried 1" deep in the soil and then taking a hot 480 volt power cable and shoving it into your chest. The power is looking for the shortest route to ground and you are it. I won't get too grewesome, but have seen the results of lightning exit wounds that jumped a few inches out to get to ground. UGLY

PalominoBuck,
Y'all look great together, oh and the horse looks good with you too. lol

I hear ya, Hunter..lol

We are dealing with a lot of shedding at the barn. I could spend an hour per horse a day and not be shed out by the end of the month.


Here are some more pics since I know we all like pics.....





This is one of the babies my wife daycares and loves being around me.

No I was not giving sign language as I just noticed my hand.lol I was snapping my fingers to get her to look at DW for the pic..



I have a question about the saddle.. I think it is way to light a tan for him and was curious if I can darken it or will it be too much trouble?
