    Sooooooooooooooooo, where is everyone?? Who was it here that was on a diet?? I need support as I am on a diet and fell off for a bit and am back on my diet wagon.

    My DH has worked over time for the last two days and will be doing more tonight so I am boredddddddddddddddddd! I do not have tv as I refuse to pay the enormous bill they want as it is satellite out here on the ranch. I will be purchasing an antenna so I can get at least the basic channels so I do not have that to entertain me. Only me and the fridge, bah ha ha.

    I guess I could saddle up but just really do not feel like it. I have entertained lots of clients this weekend and am beat! And lonely too I guess.

    What are ya'll up to???
    Devide a paddock with an electric tape so they can't walk side by side when grazing. I do that and have found Bugs will wonder off. Its Stella who has the problem. No one to boss around.

    You could always go carrot hunting

    Wow, been a busy weekend for most everyone here it seems.

    To the teachers I hope each of you have a great summer before going back to teaching our spawn what the government wants them to know. Lol

    Alex, you have my empathy for the issue you had with kid #4 and hope you can get back to trying again. Some kids just feel they have a better chance of doing to others before it gets done to them again.

    I remember dating a girl in a similar way you are dating the baseball player. It was all well and good til she found out and filed a restraining order. I guess it was fort he best as our long distance relationship really has prospered to me. Lol

    Tj, the model looks really nice and technical. It shows how much you enjoy doing it. Congrats.

    Congrats to everyone who got some riding in this weekend.

    Stan, I always enjoy seeing pics of the pair at your place.
    I too have tried the witty type comments with my wife in certain situations that had no better results than yours. Lol

    I had a good weekend until yesterday evening. I went and picked up another horse for my daughter so I could have mine back. Half way home the wheel bearing on the driver side rear axle decides it has had enough. Smoke bellowing out at each stop so about 2/3rds the way I called Michelle and had her come swap the trailer and Doc over to the F150 so she could follow me as I limped the truck over to a friend's. I sure Doc appreciated being taken out of his stall just to be fought for 20 minutes to load in a trailer after over a year of not being in one, pulled down the side of the road at 10 miles an hour and almost caught on fire so he could be in a pasture all by his self while 5 other horses are stretching over a fence to get a whiff of him. Lol

    He is a little under weight, as it seems all of them I get are, and 20+ years old with a btdt attitude. Amber led him around all four corners of the pasture, done some start/stop/whoa cycles to see how he does in a brand new environment as new horses are steadily naying at him. He did great and never got a bit pushy even when she worked on moving his front or rear feet. It kept one ear on her at all times and really impressed me.

    Without further ado, here is the crappy cell phone pics of Doc.

    First one is His PO on him about 6 months ago.

    These were from yesterday and I know he will be all filled back in with muscle where it is lacking before too long.

    Hi all! Just a quick note.......while eating breakfast, I found ANOTHER horse to look at....(I'm supposed to be putting this on the back burner......but I love the chase...)

    Check it out if you want. CM Cooke County Gold. There is a nice You Tube video on her. I viewed most of it this morning while eating my oatmeal. (made me LATE!)

    She seems super calm. I think it's worth a look. Try her out see how you get along.

    I have 12 horses w/no intentions of buying another but I always check out the Paso's for sale on horse sites and on craigslist. It's just fun to see what's out there.

    NM71, she is a very nice looking horse and would be great for you. Just make sure you are willing to stay on top of her discipline and manners. I saw a few moments of her changing pace, looking around instead of just going and her following her a little while bouncing the ball. She's a good age and has a basic training, but looks to be a recent training instead of a btdt training. Be prepared to spend time solidifying her training, but I do see an eagerness to please in her and that is a great thing to have. The fact that she is trail riding alone is also a big plus!

    I think she will be fine for you if you feel the connection when you get eye to eye. Good luck and let us know how the visit goes if and when you do.

    Sounds like there was plenty of experiences on that ride. Glad you had fun and I enjoyed the interaction along the way. Hope it was enough of a recharge to get you ready for being back home.
