I was going to feel bad for you, but then I saw that your location lists the Dominican Republic. So well, I really don't feel bad for you.

Yuck. Hope you were unhurt.

I've spent pretty much the full day reading this conversation. You are all a bunch of yappers! I think I was about 15 pages behind. Phew.

But I am confused.
The photo of the shower it appears the bottom half of the door is missing. Care to explain that.

Swinging doors, There is quite a nice breeze that blows up through there. Quite refreshing.

Stan those treks look like so much fun! I am hoping to one day go on a cattle drive. They have a few of them here and you can bring your own horse or use one of theirs.

Age: 37

Married: 3 years next month. Awww, we are just newly weds. Been together for 8, and I got sick of waiting, so I proposed to him, got on one knee and gave him my engagement ring to put on my finger when he said yes.

Health: Pretty good, despite being a smoker and having an aversion to taking care of myself, or going to Drs.

Children: None, we'd like one, been trying for a long time.
We've had about 30 foster kids though.

Employed: Full time foster parent.

We live: In a town with a 5000 population. It's an old house that we are trying to renovate, and restore.

Horses: Just one, I board, so can only afford one. I only really need one too, but I'd have more if they were home.

How close: About 10 mins away.


Here's some pics of where I board, the owner used to be a carpenter so all the fencing is beautiful:
Edit to add a pic of my house.

I'm so impressed and envious!

I want to ride with each of you in all those great places. Beaches, lakes, valleys, hills, woods and huge open spaces. The other thing is most of you have friends to ride with and have a good time. (But I don't have to worry about all that white stuff, getting 7 cords of wood in for the winter, storing hay and all that other fun stuff. )

I know lots of people with horses but they are in the Circle Club or stay in safe and secured areas. So it's me, my wife and/or Amado going out on adventures and meeting the people up in the hills that other Gringos never get near.

We used to be able to go out every day and take a different trail 7 days a week. But most trails have been fenced off so we have to trailer further and further. But what the heck. New adventures and new friends.

I'll try to remember what has been posted but like some others, a lot for my old head to hold and my Dengue Fever has returned for the 3rd time… so my wit is a little… not so witty. Being able to just sit, see and read makes me feel so much better. Thanks.

Bob is a Brazilian made Taurus 9 mm. That's the largest legal caliber that you can get as a private person. U.S. $3,000. For the gun, tests and two licenses; one to own and one to carry. Drug test and re-new every year. Must be carried concealed, that's why I wear long shirts outside my pants. I use a holster cause it's real difficult riding with it stuck in the front of my pants AND so many stories about them going off and men have to water the lawns sitting down. And yes, I have pulled up my shirt several times as a deterrent, drawn it twice in a defensive stance and fired it a few times as a warning. All at two legged varmints. NO problem in the hills and out-back areas. Only in the "civilized" areas have we had trouble and security for our place is a high priority. No way could we leave our horses out overnight.

So AlexS. Living in a 3rd World paradise come with a price tag. And over the 10 years of living here full time, the price keeps getting higher and instead of moving into a 2nd world place it has been galloping toward …. You don't want to know. Ya want to see what it takes just to keep the electric on? And I've re-done old New England homes and old boats too. It's a lot of work but can be so rewarding when you are done if you are doing most of it yourself. I wish you luck with that and all you do.

I'll work on another smaller presentation about what it takes to live in paradise if you wish.

City water pressure...when we have it.

Ok, this is going to be a random post...

It's mostly for Stan,but anyone with a good recipe please chime in.

For the first time in my adult life I bought lamb shanks (imported from NZ!!) Anyways, I lived with my Irish grandma growing up, who cooked lamb and it stunk so terribly I can still smell it if I think about it to long.

Hubby and I are Paleos/ Primals (we eat only meats, veggies, fruits, nuts, some dairy, oh and WINE) so we like to try all sorts of new meats. I took the plunge and bought this lamb. Now, does someone have a way to cook it that doesn't stink, and does not involve mint jelly?? I have lots of recipes but have no clue if they are good or not.

This is a Forum about HORSES?

ROFL.... BIG TIME. Sorry dear but the Irish and English can ruin a good piece of meat... no matter WHAT it came from every time with boiling it to beyond recognition and then putting some sort of harsh sauce on it to cover up the mush that they have created.

Stan... ? Another good post with a question that you had be able to answer. (garlic type sauce on the BBQ... or oven roasted... or fried up with ??) And never boil and don't over cook a promising piece of meat. Give it and you a chance. Good luck and waiting for the EXPERT on lamb.
