    My horse would definitely be described as LOYAL and SENSITIVE...

    Stan if your wife ever hoofs you out, let me know. I could live there quite happily. Not sure how well I would cope with you, but duct tape is a wonderful thing.

    Hi to all the newbs.

    Brief rundown My back yard and the beach we often ride. 60 miles of sand its a west coast beach on the Tasman sea, that's the ditch between NZ and Australia. And talking about leg roast. Sorry to those that like little critters but with mint sauce.
    That is a beautiful back yard Stan.

    Ya PBuck.. that's our back yard and thanks. But really.....

    ... WOW! Thanks for the great photos Stan. Lot's of open places to ride.... and a beach too. We booking our flight.

    From CNN online:

    Air travel: From cattle-class to horse-class - CNN.com

    Each air stable can hold three horses. So if you were traveling from Australia to England, three to a stall is the equivalent of economy ($17,500), two to a stall is business class ($30,000), and one horse on its own is first class ($50,000).

    But then again... maybe not?

    Hello and Welcome to Sereno and Angelina. Jump right in the saddle fits fine.


    WithGrace,

    Good luck and most of all HAVE FUN!... Please have someone take pics for us to see. We are taking Amber(my 12 year old daughter) to the Gulf Coast Horse Show tonight so she can see some of the events that people enjoy besides just trail riding. I'm hoping she doesn't get interested so I don't have to become a bank robber to support it. Lol

    Here is my best bumm entry I could find.

    So many great back yards out there to be enjoyed. I'm jealous. Here are a few of the front yard as we were coming back from our neighborhood walk the other night.

    Just a quick check in here to say HI to everyone, and to welcome all the newbies....now I'm not the newest girl on the block anymore!!! ��

    Grace, GOOD LUCK and have fun!!!!

    Went the big tack store AGAIN yesterday after work....they were having a big sale, and a friend wanted to go....I couldn't say no even tho I had just went last weekend.....�� And of course I bought the zebra striped print saddle pad I had my eye on last time, as well a pair of clippers, and a tote to haul all my clothes back and forth to work...(.I change there and go straight to the barn most nights.) I just HAD to have the proper tote, ya know???

    Stan, your backyard is gorgeous!!!! I have a few friends who live in NZ and Australia. I hope to make the long trek over/down there some day! On my bucket list!!! Never had leg of lamb, but my mom has started raising boer goats. Apparently they are becoming very popular to eat! Hmmmm, they are awfully cute though....

    Serena beautiful neck of the woods there in the Dominican too! Wow!!!!��

    The weather is to be beautiful here today! Can't wait to head on out and saddle up! ��

    Just got word yesterday that the lady will be coming to,pick on Skye on Monday! I smiled and walked away....then I got a lump in my throat....I know this is best. She has sense begun to,ruin a portion of fence to get to greener grass ( she's a bit of an escape artist), and the other night when I went to put the water bucket in she spun around and put her butt right at me!!! Scared the heck out of me...I couldn't figure out what she was doing, all I could imagine was bending over and her giving my head a good wollup! It's better she goes! ����.

    Contacted and set up a use of a horse for the clinic next week. It's rainn's former owner. She wants to sell the horse I will ride. Pepper is still pretty green, so she's not really something I want to buy, but I thought would make a nice clinic horse to learn on...plus it would help them by getting her a bit more training and possible potential buyers seeing her! ��

    Everyone have a great day!!

    Happy trails! ��

    I'm sorry you are having to give up a horse. I'm sure it will be the best for both of you if she is going somewhere they have the needed tools to train her to be safe. Hope you find a horse that suits your needs and makes your life happy around them again.

    If either of you get lonely, I would volunteer to let you pay for ticket for me and my horse. It's a lot of work on my part, but that's just the kind of nice guy I am. I would be willing to come to comfort either one one of you with my company. As they say, a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do.
    Hint, hint.
    Haha😜

    Is it strange that I don't think of going anywhere without my horse? It's sooo nice to ride with good company so I'll think of you PBuck.

    BTW:
    Auh ohhh. My lovely child bride gently reminded me this morning it's our wedding anniversary. Somewhere around 35 years?

    Gotta think FAST!

    1. Happy anniversary dear! I got all the saddles and tack out for you to clean.
    2. Happy anniversary dear! I'm planning a riding trip with our new friend Stan. Can I have $100K to firm it up? It includes a lamb dinner too. OH... did YOU want to go too?
    3. Happy anniversary dear. I've made reservations at the Taco place for tonight.
    4. ???? I'm in deep ya know.

    OK... someone put the Homer Simpson head slap in for me.

    Just checking in this morning. Love the beautiful pictures. Stan, if the US government continues to send us down the tubes here, DH and I have discussed moving to NZ or Australia. Hate to give up the farm that he built for me, but I miss being in a country with a work ethic and common sense. At least in Australia and NZ you guys seem to have no qualms about telling it like it is. Here, we're afraid we might offend someone and then, of course, they turn around and bomb us and laugh at us. Anyway, I got off topic. Love the pictures, what a beautiful place to live and ride. The butt picture is good, too - but my QH butts are better. Oh, you meant yours? Forgot to look sorry.

    AlexS, you are a joy. I so enjoy your few words packed with wit. I think our Stan has met his match. I can just picture him trussed up in duct tape before he realized what was happening; I think his Ros kind of sneaks up on him, figuratively speaking, once in a while so we know he has his blind spots. Keep it comin', girl!

    Nicker, I think you ar now officially horse-shopping crazy lady, just kidding! Remind us, when is theclinic? I'm hoping you have a wonderful time and you'll meet other people there who might have - or know of - just the horse for you. Fingers crossed.
