    Hunter - your clinic looks like a lot of fun. My daughter is an archer and has been talking about doing horseback archery for quite some time.

    Stan - it is so beautiful in your backyard. I am jealous of the greenery. Glad you are getting some rain. Will it be enough to recover from your recent drought?
    We will need weeks of rain. I recently had a new power pole installed. The hole was over 6 foot deep and dry all the way down just dust that means the water table is extreamly low hence the weeks of rain required. What we are getting at the moment is getting the grass to grow but I still have a third of my paddock area strugling to recover. Not a good out look if it gets cold. We need rain and warm temps for a few more weeks. We will survive!

    Serrano-glad that you are back w/us. Both situations sound pretty scary.

    Hunter-Ouch, again! Glad you had a good time.

    Stan-So happy to hear you are finally getting rain. Fingers crossed that the drought gets broken.

    Just got off to back to back graveyard shifts. Got a litle sleep, but need more, but wanted to chime in quickly. Wanted to get caught up w/my favorite thread.

    Up and put in a full days work.

    Sereno came out of his stall with a little limp yesterday and then again this morning. I checked him then and again. Found nothing and kept waiting for him to "tell me something" as I worked up and down. Nothing. Went to the med. Cabinet for some massage stuff. I REALLY HATE IT WHEN THINGS GET USED UP AND NO ONE SAYS ANYTHING! Got my aspercream and had our guy work it in for 10 minutes. No change as he limped away to graze in our yard... then noticed his ... ahhhh... crotch rot? That was fun to deal with since he is so sensitive at this point that cleaning him and getting the meds on was ... that's my challenging buddy.

    Rained yesterday. By 11 AM hot and humid and everything dry. Got my riding mower out to cut the far pasture. Oh my! Over a foot high in some spots. Had to pick up limbs, garbage and pull weeds big time. Well.... I had our help do that while I sat and drove in circles for 4 hours making a nice, neat pile for him to rake up tomorrow. Then we do another pasture. We havin some fun now! Next day catch up with the other two.

    Our hired hands love us soooo much! .............. an clean the pools, wash the car, paint the stalls, trim the trees, cut the lawns, wash the dogs, haul that bail and tote that barge?

    Have a good one.

    Had my 2nd lesson today. Got on better, didn't shake from fear. Instructor had me do balance exercises, figured out what muscles I need to work on. A GOOD session, for beginning again. TinkerToy is a wonderful little mustang. Will go to Ramen noodles to afford my lessons, skipping last week was hard. Onward & upward.

Welllllllllll, except, I have another thing to add to the "what are your horses scared of" thread. THE OCEAN! Ha ha, I had to lead my mare to the water, she was not having any of the roaring and the sand washing from beneath her feet, well, she was not a fan. There are three stages of sand at the beach, the too loose, too wet, and just right, lol. Here are some pics.

    Got a leather burn..............

    Found two dollars on the beach.............. sand ones of course...........

    Back to truck..........

    Detour the bay...........

    Love to splash!

    The splashing is cute and all, but I just don't get it. Used to think they wanted to see how deep the water was before moving on but na, they would just stand and splash as long as you let them. Thanks for looking and sharing with me.
    I STILL have not gone back to my night of defending. BUT I knew that YOU and your husband had worked on a riding trip in your new trailer and I WANTED photos. So I looked and ... WOW!

    Loved them and your comments. Thank you. DANG GIRL... looks like great fun!
