    Welcome, AnotherHorseDad, we tend to abbreviate names here, so if you see AHD, it's likely you were are talking to. :)
    Some advise, Stan's a little 'out there' but we tolerate him. :)
    And while your daughter is recovery, get to saving up. There's no such thing as cheap horse.


    Welcome back Nicker.

    Thanks to whoever said they wished I got more horse time, I knew who you were a minute, ago, and my mind has gone blank.... again. LOL


    So in my news, I've been looking for a trainer, for about a year. There's lots, but I don't have a trailer, and they won't come to me. I stress that my best time for lessons is when the kids are in school, so that should be their quieter time, and I will pay more for them to come to me. I've been getting a fat lot of nothing. I don't have any horse drama in my area that's causing them not to come out. I did leave one trainer, but it was as amicable as it could be.

    Anyway, I posted somewhere else looking for someone. Got a lot of mid range trainers contact me - and one who is outstanding. She's a judge, she's certified, and has two horse barns, one in NY one in VA. She's willing to stop off and teach me as she travels through. I've been stalking her FB page, and I am terrified. All her students are in close to show attire for their lessons. Erm, I ride in a tank top (and breeches Stan laugh). I am going to have to buy some collared shirts, and break in my tall boots.

    I believe that she is going to cost me a fortune though, she's asking for an overnight in a hotel, which I can do if it's not Donald Trumps, and the lesson is once a month. But I am now trying to find local horse friends who would be willing to maybe go in on a group lesson with her, to help me with the cost.

    About normal costs here at $40-60 an hour. I can do and did that once a week, so if it costs me $200 once a month, that's possible. I'd guess with the hotel, that it might be about $200.

    I'm thinking less frequent lessons from a very serious rider is a better idea than frequent rides with someone who may or may not know more than me is better.

    Brad's telling me to go with the best I can, I don't think he has a concept of what that will cost. He has no idea about the hotel yet. Not very sure how to tell him that. LOL

    Nice pic nvr. I understand about the butt pics.

    Today on the way to the inlaws, we passed a car trailer with 3 brand new Ferrari's on it, that's pretty rare in my area, so I took a pic that I was planning to put on my FB. Click, pic taken, I'm happy with myself until I look at it, and it's basically my chest that's visible. So I didn't put it on FB. And I wonder what's behind me, the dogs were in the car. Is that a butt hole, or a nose? I am not sure.

    The worst part is that I am not trying to be funny, it's just the horror that is my life. Laugh.

    My dogs are both some kind of pit mix, or something similar, so neither have a pug type nose. I think what you are seeing there is pure dog butt.

    This stuff only happens to me, I swear. And it's so normal, I didn't even think about it, until you mentioned the butt pic.

    LOL, I didn't take it to that level, so I will take your advise on what it is with the dog. But I am a little chested lady, so I think you need to blow it up some more.

    You are hilarious Stan, I swear your wife is a Saint.

    We did the butt photos some time ago ladies but I agree with Sereno and Roadyy we can do them again if you insist.

    I do enjoy the photos of riding through the country side but as I am not riding at present feel a little like I am missing out. I'm having a small problem with a hip joint giving me a little pain. It is normally my right hip, which is fine at the moment. Now my left hip is giving discomfort. I wonder if it is because I spend a large amount of my time sitting. More riding required I think.

    Now that its coming into winter, time for the warm weather gear. Tights, yellow and black boots , chaps,chafs,tights or leggings, whatever they are called in your country. A black hat and boot length trench coat. Now wrap your imagination around that riding outfit.

    Let's do a pic of us thing, with our names. Obviously I am Alex, but I need some time to block out the kids from the photos and that will happen tomorrow. Any photo of me, has the kids in it.

    I just was taking the dogs out, I ran in with them, and he flashed his lights as I guess he didn't realize I knew he was there, and was just putting the dogs in.

    My neighbors kitchen light came on. I wonder what they think. I think I have cops once or twice about my house in 6+ years, he's a friend, and an exceptional one. There's a ball park about a block from me, he sits in their parking lot when he has nothing else to do, and just needs to sit somewhere because 'I am too little to take on these kids'. So it happens frequently that he stops by to say hi.

    I don't remember if I told you all, but I have been fighting my local corruption in politics, they have been talking about cutting a cop. I have been making myself a PITA, they don't know the battle they will have, if they try to cut a cop. That's just not happening on my watch.

    Good Morning!

    6:30 AM and all ready warm. It's been over 80 by 8 AM and humid. Ya know it when you take a shower and before you finish getting dressed.... you want another shower.

    Grace: I spent summers at my grandparents place with their show Morgans; they had a room filled with pretty ribbons and statues. Being rather young I would get board watching them go around and around and around. I just wanted to go out and ride. So it took me a long time to be able to appreciate what REAL work and how much discipline it took to do what you do. I see people here in the "Circle Club" that never take their horse out just for a nice ride.

    CW. New place? Photos? Isn't Coo building a new barn? Photos?

    Farmchic. Ya. First time doing the foaling thing. By time I would get to my grandparents place after school was out, the foaling had already happened. So I'll be asking a few questions every now and then. You have another getting ready to foal soon? I gotta find some hay and find a better way to water the pastures that are chewed down so much that they eating the dirt.

    NM71. Glad you had a good time. Sorry about the cold steak. Lol

    Alex: Getting an hour a month? Just for you and horse? NAYYYYY. Enjoyed your photo.... very much. But I'm not allowed to talk about ta-ta's, even if only in a mirror in a photo.

    NVR. Nice photo. I feel so bad for you one your 400 acres.

    AHD aka: Anotherhorsedad. Don't mind Stan. He lives Down under-under in New Zealand so sometimes we have to turn our page/screens upside down to understand. JUST KIDDING STAN.... we love ya!
    .............
    Group trip? Just about every photo that is posted I want to to ride there. Which one of you won the 600M lotto? Just remember your friends. :)

    Talk later. Have a good one.
