    Yearling
    Spring is most definitely here and the school year is soon coming to a close. It is now track and field and Biology field study season. I am looking forward to going along and helping out with a few classes on their field studies.

    This past Saturday our school district held its annual Young Scientist Conference where grades 7, 8 and 9 kids go to the university to listen to and do various activities with working scientists. As an organizer of this event, I was pleased with the day as both the kids and the presenters seemed to have a great time. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to our local horse show that day because I was busy at the conference, but in the end, it was worth it to see ths excitement in the kids' eyes. Hopefully I will make the next show.

    NickerMaker, I am glad your field trip went well. Have faith that the right horse will come along soon.

    Sereno- Yes, I know what rope burn feels like. My hand is just now healed up from a couple of weeks ago when my friends new mare tossed me like a salad. I got rope burn from the leather reins. I guess you could say I just couldn't hold on any tighter.

    Tonight I gave both geldings a good workout and a thorough grooming. I am working toward showing Koolio in dressage so tonight I practiced keeping a steady active rythm and shoulder in's. I took my old man Sam to check out the beginnings of what looks like a new house on the empty acreage lot a few properties down the road. Then we went and did some bush-whacking just for fun.

    We are waiting on the bobcat guy to come and level the floor inside the barn so we can start putting up kick walls, stalls and the tack room. I'm anxious to get it finished, especially since the mosquitoes are now out an they want blood! In the meantime, the horses are grateful to wear their mosquito proof space suits.

    You don't get under my skin at all, actually I care for you. I guess I went too far with my jokes, I tend to do that.

    Tonight Brad met me, so we had 30 free mins after he finished work and so we went out. The table next to us the guy asked if he should get fish and chips or a burger, he asked the server, she said both are good. I yelled fish and chips, he didn't really seem to appreciate my input and didn't talk to me further. Shoot, I didn't mean to do something that out of the park, and I didn't really think it was.

    I tell you this I think I just did it again, with Stan. I don't play games, I don't hint at things, if I am being mean, I think it's clear.

    I am sorry Stan, I thought we were playing, and I took it too far. I do that, sometimes. Sorry.
    I was playing My response was tongue in cheek that's why I ended it I am a man. And I had to go and cook dinner I re-read what I had said and it did have an edge to it so it is me that is sorry.

    AlexS and every one else I am not offended in any way, if I was, I would let you know privately. So AlexS. I don't fancy the trip over to the dark side to bring you back.
    And DOM
    Domesticated and the second word is not old. On the other hand ?

    I used to think that I was flexible then I got a taller horse. Stretching helps.
    Being younger than 60 helps to

    So very relieved that you are not upset with me. I am pleased about that, if I step out of line, ever, just tell me to shut it. :)

    Domesticated old maid?


    Facebook just told me it is my wedding anniversary, we only married in 2010. I knew it was coming, but I didn't think it was so soon, I've been wrapped up in the new kids. So I turned to Brad in shock.

    He moved his phone about one inch from his face and woke it up to see the date.

    Geez, we are doomed, it's only been three years and we are an old married couple already.

    He gave me a kiss and headed to bed, on his way up the stairs, I asked if we are going cards. Because you know there is nothing worse than not getting a card when the other does. He just shook his head, and said 'you know how much Mothers Day just cost between you and my Mom'.

    It's like we have been married 20 years already.

    It hurts! Mine bubbled up just like a regular burn.
    You are worried about rope burns Spare a thought for the horse wandering around thinking to himself. What was it I used to do in my spare time.

    When I started reading this evening there were a bunch of bods on the thread. By the time I caught up you have all gone. Is there somthing I don't know, my after shave, under arm. I know what it is, its the time zone. We in new zealand are in the future of the rest of the world with Australia coming a close second but it does not matter what an Australian my say about a Kiwi, we always 2 hours ahead of them. That should get an answer.

    DOM I can see you are having trouble sorting that one out so Im going to let you all you ladies off the hook.

    D= domesticated. Good around the house, can cook, SWMBO has toiled hard and long grooming me to perfection which leads on to
    O= oracular of or like an oracle, wise and prophetic, mysterious, which just rolls on to the

    M= Man. What else needs to be said.

    Just went back over my last post One can tell it was written at the end of a long day.
    Just finished spreading fert over the paddocks and no I did not walk around spouting s... I used the quad and spreader. Its forcast to rain this weekend sterting on Friday, so I'm trying to give the grass a boost before it turns cold and growth stops. So, if I don't make it onto the forum this weekend it is because of rain fade interupting the signals.

    Cheers all and ride.
