    I keep remembering......it's a three day weekend!! Woohoo! And we have absolutely nothing planned!! we've been SO busy lately on weekends it's nice just chillin' at home for once!!

    How's about a fluffy tail contest????

    We may be scratching hair off our bumm....but rainn's tail sure has bloomed since winter! Maybe her senior supplements are helping a bit. We've had her on them a month now.....

    Lets see those tails!! Bring 'em on!!!

    P.s. You can see how she's rubbed her behind....it's dried up, but very bald....doesn't appear to be scratching tho!!


    Apparently.....as I've been told by several people who know her.....this bumm your lookin at is/was a SUPER reining horse!! Wish I could have seen her in action before her 'wire accident' and she became lame..... Oh well...retirement is treating her well!!

    Brad's going to buy me one of those electronic cigs on the way home from work. If I go into a gas station right now, I will buy a pack of cigs, so he can get it for me instead.
    Stay with it and deal with the triggers. It really does work. Different strokes for different folks I know, but here is my take on aids. Take them off and don't use them as you only have to deal with the substitutes later in the process. Been there and done that spent lots of money on aids.

    I also had to say to myself, I Don't Smoke, over and over for the first couple of days but it gets easier. How long has it been now a day, two days, give yourself a big pat on the back you survived without a smoke. You don't smoke. Great aye. That feeling you have when you and the horse do something new. Well, feel it again now.

    See you can do it, you already have. You are alive you did not drop dead from the lack of a smoke.

    The nicotine is out of your system within 72 hours from then on you are dealing with the psychological addiction. Now I'm off

    I can't compete with that, but I'll check out Stella and Bugs and post the results later.

    Alex - I wish you the best on quitting smoking. If you want it, you will do it one moment at a time.

    Roadyy- the trailer looks great! I wish I had the skills to do something useful with my hands. Maybe it's time to learn.

    Sereno (and Roadyy too I think) - good luck with you prospective properties. Is the intent to run a business or for personal use?

    Stan - did I read a while back you are keeping Stella? Does that mean Bugs is going? Or, are you keeping both? Or did I dream the whole thing?

    AnotherHorseDad - best of luck on the X-rays. I have never purchased a "perfect horse" as I don't think they exist. I do look for one I can work with that is healthy and sound (mentally and physically) enough to enjoy working with, thst I can afford to purchase and look after. As for preferences, likes and dislikes, there are many, many different approaches to training, riding and keeping horses. I believe every person has to find their own "way" that gives them as much pleasure and joy out of being with horses as they can. It isn't a out how you ride or train, but that you ride or train and more importantly that you enjoy yourself doing it. Nobody else can tell you how that will be for you. At best, they can offer you different approaches to try. Your daughter is one lucky girl to have a dad who is so dedicated to helping her live her passion.

    I had made up my mind to sell Stella as Bugs will most likely be the better horse for me as he seems to be happy in my company, as oposed to Stella who lays her ears back when she sees me. One would think I had miss treated her which I had not. She is a complicated mare. I have had some good rides with her. After my heart attack we went on a ride over the easter holidays 2012. 4 days and she was a dream for me. Never put a foot out of place even got caught up in some wire and stood still when told to while I untangled her. Now after talking about, and remembering the good rides, moving her on just got harder.

    I think Stella relates to women better than men Though she has never been mean but has a strong will. You and her would click. And I can't ride two horses. Bugs will miss out, he won't get the milage needed to bring him on with treking. I'm not getting any younger so this coming season is when Bugs makes or breaks it.

    Stay with it it gets easer.

    I guess I am confused, I thought that your wife sold her horse, and was going to ride Stella? Or am I totally off base?

    Roslyn won't ride Stella she is to big for her. Stella is about 16-2h and Roslyn is knee high to a toadstool. Needs a ladder to get on. She is looking for another horse. Due to the moods the mare's display she has decided on a gelding 14-3h or there abouts and SHE IS NOT GETTING BUGS NEVER.
