    WooHoo With Grace!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! What a weekend! You are making me miss competing!!

    OK, I HAVE to get into the conversation on trailers. Here is mine......

    OK, just kidding.....we don't even own a truck OR a trailer! All in due time, all in due time!

    Today I bopped out to the barn to give Rainn a spa treatment on her itchies. Decided we three girls needed a bit of exercise, and took a nice walk. It was a bit nippy out, but the sun felt good, and it turned out to be a beautiful late afternoon! So I clicked a few pictures off.

    I can see the glow off of you from here, WithGrace. Congrats on an amazing showing.

    NM71, don't feel bad about lacking in a trailer and truck. I don't have a trailer and my own truck is down with a leaking axle as well as a lost ignition key. Lol

    Hello CW, hope all is well over there, hun.

    PrairieRose, how are things over in your neck of the ranch?

    My daughter came over today. She, DH, and I all went for a nice little trail ride. (3 miles) The weather was perfect.

    A tad stressful Roady, thanks!
    I could ply you all with a loooooong post on the downside of life, but my nature prefers to lean more positively.

    Most of the time. :)

    Last Friday evening, for instance.....positive was hard to pull out of my boots, but I reached waaaaaaaay down deep. Doggone it, where had that positive done run off to, anyway?

    Got a voicemail from the big local Chevy/GM dealer that is fixing my truck.
    Lady blasted through the light and t-boned me on March 25th. Coupla weeks of arguing with her insurance company until they saw the light. Then the go ahead for the dealer to fix my beloved 2000 GMC 3/4 ton Sierra.
    And so, as you all know, I have been waiting her return home anxiously.......

    The voicemail said my truck was ready. Yay!!!!!
    Hubby and I went up to get it.
    Saw her shiny new self and got in. Lordy, felt so good to be back 'home'!

    Started her up and headed back across town to get my rental vehicle so I could return it.

    My pickup didn't sound very good. It 'clunked' in the rear and felt bogged down.
    I put it in AWD to see how the transition was. BAD IDEA.
    Oh boy. This was a not even drive-able type of clunk.

    I pulled off the road and had hubby get in it. Hubby was quite un-impressed as well. We managed to get it back to the shop at the dealer--who was now closed.

    I left a full page note on the front seat and called and left a voicemail to the shop also.

    Got a call from the shop manager today.
    Seems they found the problem.

    They put the WRONG rear end in my truck. Seriously.
    They want me to know how sorry they are, terribly, terribly sorry.
    They were going to get the right one as quickly as possible and yes, I could keep my rental vehicle longer.

    I asked if this wrong part could have caused damage to anything.
    He doesn't 'think' so.

    Yes, that will be in writing........

    Positive is still here.....just have to hunt a little longer for it.

    I can't possibly catch up. You all yack so much. :)

    I am looking for a trailer at the moment, my top budget is $1500, and that's right after a pay day. LOL. You can imagine the heaps of junk I've been seeing, heck I am younger than most of them.

    Just shooting this out there, on the off chance, anyone here fairly close to me? There's a guy who contacted me and wants help learning horses. But he's an hour from me, he came out to me last Friday and I taught him what I could in a few hours. He doesn't want to ride, just learn how to interact, read body language etc. He's in the Harrisburg PA area. I don't have any horse contacts who are not local, so thought I'd throw it out there on the off chance. He's been out of work for a while, so he's not looking to pay for lessons, just tag along and learn kind of thing.

    In my news, I got two new kids in the past two weeks. One is outstanding, the other not so much.

    Now here is a very happy positive. :)
    My favorite place to friend Fran's ranch in the Badlands.
    I like to trailer out there and spend time riding and the kicking back in a hammock and listening to Fran and hubby pick their guitars.
