Hey y'all. I've invited..

... this lady to come join us. She is having a hard time and did not want to disrupt our ... banter of fun.

Take a look and let's do the MATURE thing....... for a change.

I'm 66 w two bad falls, one mediocre fall - feeling down

Roadyy... One of my many "jobs" was I was a Marine Surveyor while in the San Francisco bay area. LOVE boats and ships and owned a few. NEVER AGAIN! Lol Kinda like the other thing I'm told. "Look, but don't touch."

Well, back from horse shopping.....and that DUN deal is DONE He's not the one for me........I played with him again on the ground, and he did what I asked, very willing to try.

But once on top, you can tell he hasn't been rode much or often.....again, with time and riding, he would be good to go, but I couldn't trust him out on our own. So no, no. My gut, literally, said NO! He made me nervous!

Now onto how I was treated....one, I don't think my guy was too happy that I wasn't buying him. (Tone of voice and cleaning up real fast). And kept saying a finished horse like want will COST me.....oh well, I'll wait! I also think they think I am still twelve years old and know zero about riding ( like when I first started in horses YEARS ago)I got chastised for no breast collar, my boots were too wide, my stirrups were too short and uneven in length (I know that, my legs are different length and my back hurts otherwise....) Oh, and I guess was 'playing Pat Perelli!' With my natural horsemanship tricks.... The only thing I had right was my saddle!! I don't know....Ima bit POed I believe I should be treated with respect...I'm the buyer!!!!! I have such a bad taste in my mouth right now! I've known these people forever, and know their personality is like that (pickers) but I am grown up now, and truly don't appreciate it!!!! I'm not 12 anymore!!!!!. Gosh!


Onward we go! I told,ya.....I'm learning to grow some cahunnas!!

Nearly a week into the steroids and skin treatments. I think she's itching less, but she still has bald spots...I ordered some topical antihistamine spray, and medicated shampoo to try too! I miss riding!

On a positive note....we leave tomorrow for the mountains and our annual ATV tour! Can't wait to get out of dodge. I took Monday off too, so a nice three day weekend!! Yah!

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.

Roady....WOW!!!
That ship launch was SO COOL!!!
I loved it!
Thanks for sharing!

I was born and raised on an ocean of wide open, rugged prairie, but have Viking sea-loving blood running through my veins also.

My dad was from Denmark.

Roadyy, Made me homesick for when I owned a commercial fishing boat.
A quick look in between showers.

Arrived home from work walked in the door and could smell the roast chicken cooking. Its Friday I thought whats up, a roast chicken on a friday and the cats have been feed. Is it my birthday, no.

Thought for a moment, I'm in the wrong house. Tore outside and checked, yep, two horses. One with attitude laid her ears back when she saw me. Knew I was in the right place. Then it dawned on me, her computer had sucked a kumara. I was about to have the pressure put on me. But I have taken a page out of AlexS book. I'm going to stand my ground and resist. I told her so.

The doctor said the brusing will go down. So long as I am carefull what I say.

Safe riding this weekend folks.

Don't take a leaf out of my book Stan. I went on strike last month, and stopped doing laundry and cleaning the house, as I wasn't feeling the love. I've spent all of this month trying to catch up, which has been more work.

When I snore and that is a very rear ocassion she will wake me, make sure I am really awake and feeling like I have deprived her and while I am making her a warm comforting drink to help her sleep. She is.
