Farmpony: Some people are just looking to find meaness no matter where. It usually has to do with their own dissappointment. Don't take it personaly, I think you're awesome!

Texasgal: You don't have to read per say, but skimming would get you into the swing of what we talk about. Welcome! I love Texas! I have one horse a TWH and a mini donkey.

Woah I have some catching up to do here!

Foxhunter - LOL yes, LR's are so very thirsty! This is our first, we've owned it for 4 years, we will own it until the wheels fall off and buy another, we're crazy about our Rover! Plus, now that we have the three horse, the only other option is an F250, and that's just not going to happen...

CW - the waiting is the worst! I'm not an impatient person, but waiting for a phone call or an email about a horse makes me almost OCD...checking the phone every other minute for email, text or voicemails...hope you hear from her soon!

Farm - LOL that you are a mean girl...I think you're RAD! :)

Oh and welcome all you new "mature" peoples...chat now, catch up later! This thread goes in all directions and new chatters make it even more fun!

I rode today, we worked on leg yielding and halts. She was getting a little rusty...and then she started to get sassy about working, tried to pull through the bit, then not wanting to stay up in the bridle, then looking for reasons to spook. She got the stern "knock it off mare" quite a few times this morning.

Take the girl part as a compliment.

People can be so rude - and I love it when they are.

When I was flying back to the UK the flights were held up with ad storms over Chicago, nothing anyone could do about it, one of those things sent to try us.
By the time my flight landed in Chicago from Denver, it was nearly 4 hours late.
The place was chaos with the staff doing their best to reschedule delayed customers.
A man in front of me was so rude to a young woman that she was nearly in tears. I tapped him on his arm and said, in my best upper crust voice, "Excuse me Sir, is it your birthday?"

"No, it isn't. Why do you ask?"
"I thought it must be your birthday treat to yourself to be so rude to someone who is being polite and trying her best. Obviously I was wrong, you are just a very rude person."

He really didn't know what to say to that and several people were smiling at his flustering. He then tried to say that he had a very important meeting to go to and it couldn't start without him. I just said, "Well, they will have to wait then won't they? Being rude is not going to get you there faster!"

He was then more polite to the girl and actually apologised.

Nothing upsets someone who is riled more than when the object of their annoyance remains pleasant and polite! It is just the same as working with the animals, if you get annoyed or flustered then they will react adversely.

Welcome to the newcomers.

I am about to have a shower and go to bed. Totally worn out, aching like I have never used any muscles before!
I dug over five large veggie plots, I was going to rotovated them but there are deep rooted weeds in there so they needed to come up. I tell you, there is no need for 'Keep Fit' classes, take up gardening instead. Step aerobics as foot goes up onto the fork, pressure as it pushes the fork into the ground, all the bending to pick out weeds, weight lifting to empty the filled skips of weeds. All this done with extra weight training from the mud stuck to your boots.

Catch you all later.

Good looking girl Chandra. Is that you "peeking" over her back?

Boy, our weather is strange, but I'm not complaining. Close to 80 today, but Wed. And Thurs. Should be in the 80's! Poor horses, still have their winter coats on.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
