    Nickermaker, I'd buy this one: Zipp is a 10 year old Registered AQHA Gelding
    Assuming he is sound and half as good as they say.

    Can't pass advise on the horses as I know nothing about western, but Zipp's pasterns look off to me. I prefer how Savannah looks.


    In other news, I just took my dog out, and my neighbors are either having loud sex, or she is whimpering. Not very sure what to do about that one, other than keeping popping out and having a listen. I want to make sure she's ok, not really interested in hearing them do the deed.

    Well that's wonderful. I just took the other dog out and I believe they are just being a couple. I so didn't need to hear that.

    Serves me right I suppose. I wasn't trying to be nosy, I just wanted to make sure she wasn't being beaten or there was something wrong with her young child.

    And now I need ear bleach.

    Knicker, the picture is a really good one of you and the horse. You both look very happy.

    AlexS, and you call us men folk bad...you post pics of your bad self acting up in those pics, darlin..lol That dress looks great on you, btw.

    Sereno, be glad you have hair to cut in anything other than a buzz and have it look decent. Lol

    Stan, that painting is impressive to me. I really like it a lot. The grandson is cute and nice momma.

    I got some more work done on the trailer/float. One side of the tack floor is in, but it didn't go easily. The exterior wall is rotten so every time I got the weld too close it blew through. It made my welds look worse than I already had them looking. Ok, enough rambling, here are the pics.

    Critter I was being a male pig with my comment. It was similar to the old joke why do they have toe kicks around the kitchen benches. Sorry to hear about the horse. I often wonder how I would handle losing one of mine. Sit the men folk down and plan a family holiday. One where they do the cooking and you get to relax. Or get away with a friend and let them look after the critters.

    Now for the smokers. I too was a smoker I never had one out of my hand a chain smoker 4 packs a day no trouble. About 16 years ago I quit. It was easer than I thought it would be and I'm sure if I had not quit when I did, the heart attack 18 months ago would have been the end.

    You know, the day I realised I was a drug addict was the day I stopped. Smokers don't look on their addiction in the same light as drug addicts who use a needle. But the only difference is the choice of drug. A final note, did you know the bigest killer is not cannabis, P, heron or any of the hard drugs it is nicotine.

    From that we move onto the consumption of beer And I freely admitt I don't drink much. Most of it is spilt on my shirt

    I won't touch on the subject again.

    I hate all this terrorist business. I used to love the days when you could look at an unattended bag on a train or bus and think to yourself. 'I'm going to take that.'
    My miss spent youth is showing in that one



    Man in a hot air balloon is lost over Ireland ..... He looks down and sees a farmer in the fields and shouts to him, "where am I?" The Irish farmer looks back up and shouts back. "You're in that basket."





    Someone has nicked one of my carrots

    Sandi, I didn't get to go look it over yesterday, but from the limited description I was given there are 16 stalls in the main barn, 3 of which have run in paddocks. The barn also has a wash rack, huge tack room, vet room and a nice lounge. There are 9 pastures that I can count from the Google map view and a very large pond on the back of the property. It has a large outdoor arena and round pen in the same pasture. I think I still have the overview shot of the property saved. Let me look real quick.

    Here is google map shot of the property.

    KnickerMaker, check your board messages. Apparently I picked 2 of the same horses as was advised by others, but I did like Zipp and think his pasterns looked off because of the way they parked him. I thought it was photo illusion and think he is worth looking over real good. I think Savannah is the pick of the litter, but know you are looking for a gelding as I posted in the message. Lol


    Stan, You did better at allowing her to choose you than you did with Stella. Lol I see nothing to complain about in that picture what so ever.


    Bruce, If I knew I could get away often enough to make it worth my while then I would be all over checking into that property with you.

    Good morning all and look forward to some great conversations today. I feel somewhat frisky this morning since I got to go for a short ride yesterday instead of working on the trailer/float.

    Its a blurry camera phone pic as we are riding along the side of the highway.

    Critter, I am so sorry you all went through that with the death of the horse. I am lucky that we haven't experienced that yet at the place we board. We did lose one of the horses a couple of months ago, but he colicked very badly overnight and was put down by the vet and buried before we went out there so we were spared seeing it. He was owned by a lady in the military and she is overseas right now and couldn't be there so the BO stayed with him as he was put down.

    Nicker, I really liked those horses. I am partial to red roans because I rode an incredible one out on Montana at a ranch for a week in 2011 I have a soft spot for red roan geldings ever since. His name was Roany. Not very original.

    Hubby rode a paint gelding named Concho. He had one white paint splash on his belly. These were the nicest horses I have I have ever had the pleasure to ride and it was a vacation of a lifetime! The pictures we have from that place are amazing. Makes me want to retire there...or at least save up some money and spend another week. It is Mcginnis Meadow Cattle Ranch if anyone wants to look it up. If you look at their newlsetter (The Highline) archives, you can find the May 21, 2011 newlestter and see a pic of me crossing some deep water and smiling from ear to ear! If you have seen the movie "Buck" , the ranch is featured in it. Buck is good friends with the owner. Here is a pic of hubby and me and Concho and Roany. Gosh, I want to go back!

    I can only see it from the front and... better then I've had in over 10 years.

    I feel a little chill on the back of my head.

    My hat fits now... at LAST. Guess I'll wear that since it has such a good fit..... from my point of view.
