    Glad to see you back Sereno. We were all getting a little worried about you and the DW. I'm not doing anything that should be called attention to. These women folk been reading too many romance novels and get all woozy over little things and I know I don't deserve it...lol

    AlexS, please darlin, I'm no more a hero than anyone else who donated funds and sent prayers in this story. On another note, your DH's wood working skills are pleasing to the eyes. I'm envious of your improvements on the house.


    Hunter, I hope the shooting is a huge success and you find something that you can truly embrace with your horse. I have airsoft rifles here and one is full auto M4 assault rifle that holds 300 rounds. I've shot it off the back of Trusty and it makes louder and longer noise than a bow. He wasn't too sure about it the first couple of times and the squirrels hated it even more.

    WG, just cook the thing already.


    Ladytrails, I too have never heard of horse agility, but it sounds interesting.

    Corgi, I am glad to see you are making headway all the while being able to enjoy the accomplishments being achieved with Isabella. Keep chipping away at her and you will be so much more confident in both of you as a team.

    NM71, I am looking forward to seeing pics from the clinic. Sounds like you will be a lot more relaxed and really able to enjoy it now that you won't be worrisome about the other end of the lead. Good luck and enjoy.
    I agree that a gift card of any magnitude would be a surprise and probably appreciated as much by them as the loan of the horse by you. Just knowing you got it will make them truly adore you. Albeit they probably already do if they continue to offer you horses. Lol


    PB, what kind of horse show? I took my daughter to one last weekend that turned out to be 90% TWH going around in circles. We didn't stay long because we got bored quick. I hope the one you are going to has a variety of disciplines to enjoy.

    TJ, glad to see you back again. I hope to see you join in more often.




    Ok, I had two windows open to post all that. Lol One was open scrolling through all of the previous post while this one was open to respond to each person. That is easier than taking notes. Haha No I am not a tree hugger, but see no sense in being wasteful if there is an easier way.



    The DW and DD had b'day parties to go to last evening and were not home when I got off work. So I got to deliver a roll of hay, feed all the horses, doctor on Boo's leg(forgot to get pics), treat Trusty's thrush, feed the ducks, pullets, goslings, dogs and make my own supper. Then came the silence once all the chores were done as they still weren't going to be home for several hours. I sat down with a book and started reading it. Finished a few chapters before the hydraulics began leaking and allowing my eyelids to close.


    Hope everyone has a great weekend and looking forward to the updates. I'm at work and will be checking in as I always do to help push the sand through the hour glass.

    We need another horse and one is coming back to our friends in a few weeks and then to us plus Roslyn should have got a new one. Time if for the next riding for the disabled its a two day ride, and we camp. More like roughing it. I have no idea where or when but will let you know. Sorry Bob will not be allowed but I have his big brother 12guage.
    Auckland Weather.... 16C. That's kinda like 60F? We have been in the Dominican Republic long enough to have acclimated to our climate. 70F is cold. 80F is fine. 85F is the upper side of warm.

    HONEeeee.... DON'T BOOK THOSE TICKETS TO NEW ZEALAND......... yet.

    Welcome tjtalon! If you click the "user cp" tab in the upper left hand corner, this will take you to the threads you have subscribed to.

    All I did was offer the possibility of a trailer for her to use since the one she was going to use was going to be in use. Neither of us are even sure its a possibility of getting her the trailer or me being able to retrieve it once she gets Kenzie home.

    We agree there is no reason to talk anymore about it until we see whats going on with the paperwork and the BO.



    Please don't label me a hero when there are more deserving people of such a title. This is a group effort, not a single person's effort. To call me that would be taking away the power and glory that has been created by such an amazing group of people. Now lets just get back to praying for this animal's best outcome as well as the rest of the animals in the same situation everywhere.

    I truly wish stupidity hurt more so things like this didn't happen so often to kids and animals. We as adults have the ability to make calculated choices that could result in our own pain. And suffering. Putting a kid or animal in that same situation without their ability to choose should be very painful on the person putting them there.

    I almost started a book here with the thoughts in my head as I tend to ramble, so I will stop here.

    Weekend finally!

    Great to read all the updates. I extend best wishes for those going to clinics and horse shows this weekend. It is so hard to imagine winter is coming elsewhere in the world as it has just left our neck of the woods. I do hope old man winter will be kinder to you.

    It has been a stressful week at work. I am a high school chemistry teacher working as a consultant for our district. Unfortunately, the department in which the consultants work got cut dramatically, so I was declared surplus. Yesterday, I found out I will be placed in a junior high school, the one place I didn't want to go. Unfortunately, with cutbacks there are no other positions right now and many of us are having to accept positions that are not ideal for our level of skill and training. Good news is, the particular school I am going to is a great school with a great principal. I just have to wrap my mind around working with young adolescents rather than young adults. Any tips on managing 12-14 year olds en masse would be appreciated. I think lots of "Dr. Koolio" time might be an order.

    It is finally starting to green up a bit here and we are expecting warm temps this weekend. Or barn is coming along nicely and will soon be ready for us to start on the inside. Here's a quick pic from yesterday.



    I am hoping to ride this weekend if my back can take it since my I unscheduled dismount earlier this week. I'm still pretty sore, but I need to be back in the saddle before my lesson with my new riding coach on Monday evening. My daughter (and riding partner) is away on a band trip in beautiful Whistler B.C. This weekend, so I will be riding solo. I'd take DH with me, but he off on a motorcycle trip. Since I will be asking him to wire the power for the barn and dig a trench for the electrical service, I am pushing my luck to expect much more that is horse related. C'est la vie!

    I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    Sounds like things are coming along very nicely for you Koolio. I must say that I appreciate you being a teacher and sounds like a good one. There aren't enough good ones left around here after all the "None Left Behind" and teaching to pass the test so the school gets their points agenda. Most of the teachers are no longer teachers anymore, they are now simply task managers for the district. I remember my teachers spending time with us teaching us how to learn on our own rather than teaching us how to give a predetermined answer.

    I am a trouble shooter and could not have done this without the teachers in my day having the freedom to work inside my perimeters. They taught me how to stretch my boundaries and abilities to find the solutions that weren't there in multiple choice. I hope Canada gives you more freedom to teach than our American teachers have.
