    @ AlexS................ I was just sitting here getting irritated that I have not heard from my husband now 5:30 and he gets off at 3. And it made me think of you..........

    Ok wait a minute, I know you are going to think.......... why does that make her think of me.......... well, he is a corrections officer and was at the hospital all day with an inmate that got beat to the last inch of his life by other inmates and had to be taken there.

    So, how does this make me think of you........... well.......... you have the ultra hard job of helping and teaching these kids so they do not end up where my husband works. And that is a wonderful thing you do!! Just want you to hear that from me!

    If I have not said it before............ Happy foster Mothers day, Happy Anniversary, and to add, I really like your style! I wanted to get up and cheer (actually I did to my husband) when I saw your photos and story about the kids running 2.5 miles home for bad manners!!

    YOU GO GIRL!!!

    CW, those are awesome pictures! Everyone looks to be having a great ride and the horses are groomed to within an inch of their lives. Beautiful!

    Hey CW loved the photos, then I saw the horses, they are impressive too

    Driving home from the huge city of Dargaville this morning and this young person was walking her horse on the side of the road. I thought to myself here is an accident waiting to happen.

    As she walked down the road her horse was on the road side and she on the grass verge thus placing the horse closest to my vehicle as I passed her. I adjusted my speed so as not to spook the horse.

    The danger I see is if a vehicle passed to close that horse is going to go to its left right over top of the young lady leading it. Do people not think of the safety to themselves when they get between the horse and its escape route. Often see it when walking beside a building the horse next to the building and the rider on the outside again the horse has only one way to go if spooked. Perhaps its the training the horse will only be lead from one side. Bit like some have been conditioned to only mount from one side.

    Anyone else got a comment on my observation.

    Quite a bunch aren't we.

    AlexS gets them before thay go to prison. (Foster mother)

    They go to prison and have the joy of your husbands care. (Prison warden)

    Then they get released and have to deal with the likes of me. (Probation officer)

    That is, provided it is not Serenos place they tried to rip off. Bob has been known to get annoyed (Caring victim)

    You are 100% right, Stan. At an obstacle clinic last weekend, there was a lady who led her horse through the obstacles on the ground, as he was shying and balking at them. She was warned by the trainers at the obstacle that she should be careful (e.g., step away from directly in front of the horse) as he might run her over. She said that he wouldn't, he was too well trained for that. Well, he didn't knock her down but he did run into her when he rushed through.

    The young lady at the roadside also has no control of the horse's rear from her position. In her current position, if she were to try to get control of the horse, and pull its head to her, its rear end would be on the roadway, something very dangerous to all, and something that the driver would be hard pressed not to run into.

    I don't think most people respect the power of a half-ton animal. Human flesh is not going to win over horseflesh.

    I'm last in line and have the job of putting up with all of the complaints thay have of the people that have been involved in there lives and the one thing they don't get is. They make their choices. And there are consequences to those choices. I take a hard line being at the end of the line so to speak and try and make them realise they are the masters of their future and if they do not take ownership, they go back into prison.

    AlexS puts herself and her husband on the line for these loving little miss understood folk. Cynical sounding. As I am at the end of the line of a process I surposed I am. ALexS as I said before my hat is off to you and your husband. However, some through no fault of there own are made into what they are. But the majority are born to lose due to a number of factors. And they will not change. That is why we have so many repeat offenders. God help US.

    Corgi - so wonderful to hear your dad is doing better!

    Stan - is it not an option to keep both bugs and stella? They look quite happy together!

    Have been busy with sick kids and a sick dog this week. My little min pin was vomitting for two days, so had to take her in to get fluids and some anti nausea. She's finally doing better but has little bladder control and is on medication to help it, and we also confirmed she is losing her sight and her hearing. My poor pup. She slept in with me this morning, and as I went to move her over, she yelped and tried to bite me. This is not her at all, I am thinking she's in pain somewhere and we may not have her for much longer :(

    Sun might poke out today...would be nice since we havent seen it since Sunday.
    With Grace I am sorry about you little dog
    Iam praying that she gets better
