Roadyy good the see the improvments in the horse but a while yet to go. Going backwards kate tried that on once she refused to go out the drive but went backwards all the way in the end. Fixed that problem. As for the light color on the saddle, my Tucker was the same golden colour and I used a leather oil to soften it, but it also darkend it. Not the effect I wanted.

Its ANZAC day in NZ tomorrow to remember those lost in the wars. ANZAC stands for the Australian New Zealand army corp. So its the dawn parade then home to spread some lime and sweeten up the grass. We are still having some rain so all is good.

A down side to this weekend: My wife has just informed me the riding friends are going away on friday to a two day trek. I was not told about it. Must be my anti pong not working, cause my magnetic personality would almost guarantee an invite. Fickle women.

I think I will try and start a group of men only riders. Now that will cause a stur if I get it off the ground. Imagine the riot, the men off for the weekend riding taking the only horse trailer and tow vehicle the riding ladies left at home. I can see a back lash to that.

Thanks Stan. He is doing so much better now about giving to us during the doctoring process<until wife tries to hard tie him to put eye wash in> lol.

Its good to hear you are still getting sky tears and looking forward to seeing lush pastures for the horses. As for the wife waiting til the last minute to inform about the trek , I think you should pull a Dundee when she gets back. Well, a short one anyways.. lol

I would be very interested in a men only trek weekend before to long as I'm still getting acclimated to the saddle again myself. Albeit I've been doing pretty good so far even if I'm on a great animal like Trusty who has not done anything when spooked that would dump my 12 year old at bareback.

My mother is leaving today and should be back for the next visit in a month. I almost didn't come in to work today just to spend an extra morning with her, but figure she will wake up somewhere around 9-10 am then be heading out around 12-1 pm and that just wasn't sensible when she will be back in a couple weeks.

DW just called to tell me about her episode of road..err side road rage this am while hauling a load of garbage to the incinerator.

Apparently she was driving down this ole dirt road and noticed a woman sitting in the middle of a pasture while rowing an imaginary boat. She drove past for a short ways before becoming completely infuriated so she turned around and went back. Parked on the side of the road, walked over to the fence and yelled at this woman "It's blondes like you that give us a bad name!" "If I could swim I would come out there and whoop your arse!"

I told her she needs to seek counseling about this anger issue.

Hi everyone. Loved all the pictures and stories. Looks like everyone is getting in great rides.
I have been kinda being quiet Dealing with grandpas death has been Sad.
I spent some time with the horses That does help.
I also Have Gracie Rose my deaf BC she always comforts me. She isn't eating again And now I am So worried about my sweet baby girl.
She has liver disease. Something like Liver Shunt. Her liver works but is to small to work well.
We have her on meds and they help most of the time.
We are at the point that we feed her anything she will eat. Yesterday morning it had been 2 days since she ate so I finally got her to eat 2 slices of cheese and a half slice of bread. Last night I she ate like a queen I made her brown rice and roasted Chicken with Cream chicken gravy.. I tried to give her that again the AM and she turned he nose up at it..
After loosing her brother I am just so scared she is not to far till we loose her, she isn't even 4 yet :(

Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse

What is the outlook for her with this condition? Is there a reasonable surgery to transplant a liver?


You have my sympathy for all the illness around you and hope the sun shines warmly on your face to give you comfort today.
