    Roadyy, I wish you were working on my old stock trailer. It is in terrible shape. We could use it just so the horses will stay in on the honor system. The door won't close. (Please know that I won't use it...... )

    Tjtalon, will your teacher let you work off your lessons?

    No, Celeste, she can't. This stable is on it's own shoestring (really old stable, but first to be established for Lowry Air Force Base in the 40's, by owner's father). It's why I like it 'tho; everyone working hard & nice, no snooty "rich girls" ;looking down on me (encountered that last time I tried lessons: too old (even then), too poor, etc. I like this stable. I'll volunteer to work to be there.

    Thank you, Celeste, for replying to my post, & Stan, for letting me know how to get on easily. Have to go now, into my work week. Will likely check in this Sunday, to see what adventures you'all are into, & tell you who/what/why my butt got kicked in volunteering. I WILL exercise, I WILL do this.

    Don't you dare give in, and as for the rich girls, some are nice, some not, the down to earth ones do come along and some good friendships are established. I tried to marry a rich girl once, I loved the large launch her father owned, it was fantastic but it was not to be so I just had to work and buy my own.

    Wife did not like the sea, she gets motion sickness, so now I ride a horse. And there is a common factor between a boat and a horse. Boat ownership is a hole in the ocean one poors money into and horse ownership is a paddock one walks past and throws money onto with a slight difference. Who in there right mind would own and ride 1200 pounds that has a mind of its own and is capable of using it.

    I have on ocassion run into those that feel their tu tai is to good for the rest of us. But the bush trek soon sorts them out. I ride with a lot of folks that are well healed. Nice folks they take me as I am, they have to because I don't give a tu tai.

    Update from yesterdays work on the destruction of the trailer.

    Found this once the wood floor was removed from the tack box.

    Then Alicia and Jarret harassed me until I reluctantly agreed to go for a ride after dark.

    Jarret kept dropping his passie and I would get up beside them to grab him and let him down to go get it, so I finally put him on with me. Her pic of us didn't come out so well so no other proof other than this one showing he isn't with her now. Lol

    Here is Trusty after grooming him to get ready for the ride.

    Meh, you are just up the way. When I get done with this one then we can discuss yours if it's something you are really interested in. It's just something to keep my hands from being idle. Lol

    You may be getting older when.....

    ..... you rename all your animals (and grandkids) "Hey you".

    ..... when you FINALLY remembered that your coffee is in the microwave, but find the pint of cream instead.

    Roadyy. That was for horse vitamin shots. Nice to see your progress AND that someone forced you to do something fun. So how did that pacifier taste?

    Either dry as a bone or drenched. Wasn't I just commenting on how dry it was here? Rain every afternoon and night with some thunder. I've learned to run out and bring the horses home early so I don't get soaked. (What's that loud noise and bright flash mean?) It is a warm rain and getting a little wet is ok. Hey you and Hey you now think that they are indoor dogs.

    Have to good day.

    He wouldn't let me try it, especially after getting the tar additives from the couple of drops to the pavement. Lol

    Oh, I knew what the syringe was for as I give all my horses their shots, but also knew it was reckless to have left it put together. I ALWAYS separate the needle from the tube after use and dispose of the needle in a plastic drink bottle after the needle is bent in half.


    I almost forgot to update the other animal growths.

    I just realized and I'm sure y'all could tell, but the last pic are of the geese in the chicken coop. Those birds are doing some serious growing. They are still in the loving mode as they will jump up in your lap and rub their heads against your chin if you sit down in there with them.
