Ok, lets see about responding to some of the other posts..lol
Stan, I didn't have any free time to finish the trailer over the holiday weekend, but should have the feed shelf done this evening then get the divider welded back in tomorrow night. Then it will be a few patches here or there. The owner stopped by to borrow my float to go pick up a wild yearling TWH filly and I pointed out that if I start on replacing the outer skin places that need to be replaced then he would have a new trailer by the time I was done. He decided he would get a body guy to do some fiberglass work after I completed my repairs. I am happy about that. Lol
WG, I hope the new bits help some, but have more confidence in you training yourself and Kes to achieve the goals you have.
Koolio, I can only imagine how good it felt to use the barn the first time. Congrats on an amazing addition to the property!
Celeste, I like steel guitars and women who know how to play them. The pic relaxing and peaceful to look at as it causes me to relax looking at you sitting back just being.
Sereno, Glad you got water again and no longer have to worry about dehydrating yourself while trying to keep the grass growing. Hope the hay hunt gets better or profitable in the mass purchase you mentioned.
LT, I hope you are able to find a saddle to fit so there is no discomfort for your green gelding as to keep the rides pleaseant and still be able to get the tractor.
Lori, Glad you got the logistics worked out with DH as well as the ride in with your friend. Hope the get away does you good.
Corgi, I always enjoy your stories of life and how you got in the saddle. I feel like I was right there with you waiting to help if I could as you were doing it. It feels great when you relax in the saddle and feel the horse relax right underneath you. You just know it is going to be a great ride.
TJ, I too, support the rental horse idea. They are usually very cheap at or about $25 for a 2 hour ride. These horses are very forgiving with bad cues from first time riders on their backs so you shouldn't have to worry about anything but enjoying the scenery. That in itself should help build your confidence when you aren't having to focus on staying in the seat.
For all those that say they use the silent treatment..I have trained my DW not to do this because she knows I will abuse it. Lol She always did that or the "nothing" response when asked if anything was wrong. I would say ok well then me and the kids are going to do so and so while you sit here and mope about nothing. Have a great afternoon. OR ok since nothing is wrong how about doing so and so while I go do so and so... Always with a smile on my face.
When I knew she was really upset then I would truly aggravate her by sitting right under her while she watched her man hating lmn channel. Tickle her, pinch her, fondle her(or atleast try to as she pushed me away), and occasionally grope her as I walked by. I believe there even a few wedgies while she was at the kitchen sink. Those usually got a chase from her out the door where I had the water hose waiting to soak her...I try my very best to never go to bed mad. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but dadburnit, its just so much more fun not to. Lol
