    Good luck horse shopping today Ladytrails! Boy are those sellers going to be excited to see you pull up with your trailer LOL!

    Its snowing, but I'm heading to the barn for my Sunday ride with my riding buddy. I love Sundays, starting the day off at the barn always starts my week off perfectly.

    CW - can't wait to hear how this potential lease horse goes - have you heard back from the lady?

    I too hope that this horse works out for you CW.

    Been a good sunny/cloudy day here, we did have a short sharp shower first thing - just when I was out in the field.

    So, lots to do, Em was not working today so I turned them all out. Mucked out and filled the chicken feeders remembering to add the wormer. By the time I finished it was late morning so I had my Sunday treat of a fried breakfast.
    Need to do so much indoors but on a day like this there are better things to do outside.

    This coming week is supposed to be sunny, so we should be able to finish the garden.

    Everyone laughs at the Eden Project but I sorted through the plants in there and most have survived which is a bonus as most were just pulled out the planters and thrown in there.

    Unfortunately when I turned the horses out two of them were still coughing. I have a wonderful herbal product I use which helps to fight these things off, don't know what they would be like if they hadn't been on it. I heard that two people have had horses put down because of the virus, it made them so sick. Of course this means that I am going to ache when we do start riding again!

    CW I meant to say earlier that I am glad I am not the only one who needs mens shoes because of the width! My plates of meat (feet) have spread over the years though they were never narrow.

    CW and Ladytrails, good luck and can't wait to hear news about the new horse & pony!
    I woke up feeling yucky today and so didn't make it to the barn. Bummer because I really wanted to get a good ride with my mare this morning, as tomorrow it is supposed to be stormy and lots of rain through Tuesday. My mare and colt are in pastures and the colt pasture has no shelter, so if it hails as they say it might tomorrow night I may pull him in to the barn and wait the storms out. Would hate for him to get hit on the head with golf-ball sized hail!
    Also go back to work tomorrow after our Spring Break, and then there is parent conference night in the evening. That makes two days away from the horses. I am always so ready to go back after even one day away! The young girl who feeds when I can't be there is earning her money today and tomorrow.

    Jennyandjess...I ride a gaited horse. Never had before in my life. I was looking for a qh but I got my twh because of his solidness and personality. I pretty much ride him like a qh because due to his conformation he is not a natural gaiter...but I am with you...not easy to figure out...no one I know rides one.
