Wow, this was a busy weekend for responses on this thread.
I took my daughter to the local horse show, but we were both disappointed when we got there and realized it was just a walking track where there were showing walking horses. We spent $12 USD for me to get in as she was free and left after the 3rd class. Neither of us were intrigued,inface got bored quickly after we scarfed down a slaw burger and fries.
I loved looking over the scenic pics of everyone's local trail scenery. The horses all look beautiful and healthy(Stan). Glad to see the green grass at most everyone's places. I'll see about getting some buttiful pics this evening to add to the rumptious contest.
I've been a little off on some of my postings here and in other threads. My Dengue Fever AKA: breakbone and hemorrhagic fever, has decided not to go away and coming back for a 3rd round. One of the problems can be swelling and bleeding of the brain. I'm on 4 different meds to treat the symptoms. No cure for this. So I get a little "off" sometimes.
61 years old. Married for over 35 years. (we don't talk about before.) 1 daughter and 2 grandkids. Retired early due to lucky investments and... wife does well. Was Jack of All Trades and Master of a few. Have lived all over the U.S. But from old New Hampshire family. Lived in Brazil for awhile.
Hobbies? Our horses. Trying to survive in a 3rd World County that requires a lot of: Security, electric (Solar, generator, wind generator, inverter and battery skills) water issues (storage and purification) Ocean salt corrosion maintenance, being a husband and ..... trying to get our workers to do their jobs.
1/2 Acre on the Ocean and one down the street so lots of land management.
We have most everything for sale so we can move inland with lots of land and no salt air.
The Dominican Republic is on the Island of Hispaniola with Haiti on the west end of the Island.
Dominican Republic is 48,671 M2 / 18,794 sq. Miles. (Highest mountain in the Caribbean that gets snow every now and then.)
About double the size of the State of New Hampshire.
New Zealand: 270,467 M2 / 104,467 sq. Miles.
About the size of the State of Colorado.
Taken off the web site that we buy from.
Made in Colombia by hand. Used in Central and South America on Paso's for EVERYTHING. Very comfortable even after 6 or more hours.

That's it for now. I'll work on our last ride in the hills later.
PB, nice saddle....considering it's almost identical to the one I just bought last week! I find it to be super comfy...although when I sat down this morning for breakfast....my bum bones did yelp a bit!.....two consecutive days in the saddle after 20 years will do that I suspect!
Also, PB! Are you in the Dominican doing pastor work?
Have a GREAT week all! . Happy trails!!!!
Thank you, I'm glad you like the saddle. I haven't had a chance to use mine yet . I'm hoping it is comfy though.
No, I am pastoring in Wisconsin.
You speak for your self, unlike those in the States that have 100 miles between neighbours and can indulge, I live in a very small country where there is always some one watching Even in the country we are close.
As a woman, I will say that it sounds like a very civilized place. My husband would be sad. There is always after dark...........................
I have neighbors across the way, on our right side(looking at the house from the street) and a neighbor behind them that meets the back property near the pond. I have never let that stop me from lightening the weight in my leg out in the yard. If there are younguns present then I'll turn away from them, but that would be the extent of my privacy. If you, as an adult, feel the need to watch them who am I to restrain your desire...lol
Wow another busy weekend on the thread here. I read and catch up but then when I go to post I forget most of what I read (sound familiar anyone?)
Sereno I LOVE your pictures. Can we come ride with you and then maybe we can all go onto Stans? We ride to the beach here but its no where near as nice as there.
I had to add my picture in for the butt contest.
