Happy Anniversary Alex! Three years may seem like 20, but when you reach 20, you will be amazed at how fast it went.

Oracular - sounds like some wierd eye disease...

I hope everyone has a great day. Last day of work for me before a 4 day weekend. Woot woot!

It sounds like all of the teachers are beginning to enjoy their job since the end of the year is close..lol I'm glad y'all had good experiences with the field and track, science fairs and field trips. I always loved those.

Sereno, sorry you tried to cheap in your slide to home plate, but reckon if you are going to cheap then by George go all out, right?

Farmchic, gelding him when you had no plans of breeding him was a good idea. There are enough studs along his bloodline to continue the legacy through people who are more apt to breeding. Atleast I get the feeling you aren't into breeding.

I caught a little bit of rope burn yesterday as well while working with Littleman on trailer loading. He stepped half way into the trailer then bolted back out on his first attempt. Caught my hand on the divider where the rope had to go over my hand to slide through the rails. I walked him 20 feet over to my truck and grabbed the pair of work gloves I brought home from work before it had a chance to add friends to my hands.

AlexS, I'm glad to see you and Stan sucked face and made up. There will now be rainbow farts out of unicorn bootahs, golden rabbit pellets lining the walkway, chocolate covered trees providing shade from the jelly bean sun.

Stan, I'll be sending good thoughts your way for a prosperous fertilization.

I agree! I do love those little foals though. We have one stallion still we are not advertising him for breeding but he has several nice babies on the ground. We have one from him here now that's about 9 months old. I'm not as into the breeding thing as I would like to be If I knew I could sell them I would breed several mares a year. As it is most of our breeding is for horses for our personal use. I do have one mare who is bred to a gorgeous pinto paso fino and she is due at the end of July. I'm hoping for a black and white pinto!

Thought I would post a video of one of our launches. This one is at our other yard out in the boonies and we just had a launch at the yard I work at last month, but couldn't find a video of it on YT.

I wish I could get one of the ladies at my barn to read this. She keeps her horse a stallion only so she can say she trained a stallion. While he is pretty well behaved we are waiting for something to happen.. which it probably will.

Sorry about the rope burns all. Anbd thank you Koolio.

It's scary watching a boat launch, there's a second when they look like they are going to tip over.

You should watch when we side launch the double ended ferry "Grand Republic". It's now working between Bridgeport,Connecticut and Port Jefferson,Ny. That thing looked like it was going to stay on it's side when he dropped into the water. The wave went across the bayou and nearly engulfed the peninsula across the way.

We also rail launch vessels and I have ridden a couple of them into the water. They aren't bad at all unless they get loose and float across the lagoon and into some of the boat docks before the tugs can get to them. Lol

Should start welding in the new pieces this evening after cleaning out the stuff in the tack room of the other trailer.
