I didn't see a Skip, but I like Marshall and Bob. Infact if you can talk them into putting Marshall's feet on Bob then I will buy him out from under you. Lol

I understand about not seeing the pics. I have that issue with Koolio's barn pics on my work connection. I have to load the site on my phone to see her pics.

Since I know how hard it is to live on a small income, any job that comes with a larger pension is certainly worth thinking about. The longer commute can give you some thinking time. And being able to use the bathroom whenever is a real blessing! Not having to deal with kids of a certain age is also a plus.

So sorry on the loss of Gracie-as to the silent treatment-to me it's way better than yelling or a temper tantrum-it's really quiet around here. I love it when DH goes away for awhile-he went on an ATV ride Sat from 8 in the morning till 11 that night-what a peaceful day for me. Love the pic of you in the hat-would make a nice avatar.

AlexS-do you think you will be getting another boy soon? Any "extra" time to see your horse?

CW-hope you are feeling better.

Roaddy-Hope the truck repair goes well, & the new horse works out well for your daughter.

Stan-The horses look happy-I do hope you get some positive riding times on them.
Well, that has taxed my brain. WE are into the heat part of the year-starting to see 100+ degree days & the bugs are out. I need to make a dental appt-have a cracked tooth-not fun.

Celeste-Congrats to your daughter on her new job!

Good day to all.

The good thing about that is the fact that he keeps getting horses of the same quality to replace them. The consistency of quality ranch horses through his place has me wanting to deal with him.

I'd love to see your signs! I forgot to mention that I still need to put a protective coating on the wood. I am trying to decide which product will be the best. I was thinking of using Thompson's Water Seal. Any other suggestions?

Gracie Rose my sweet deaf BC with the liver problems was helped to pass over the rainbow bridge this morning . I had to do this alone because the husband is away on business. He has also been a "d$%k" and has not talked to me since Sunday. I tried to get him to talk to me about Gracie today and he has ignored me completely. I am sad.... mad... furious.... fuming I feel like I have been held underwater till my lungs are going to explode;(
I am so sorry to hear about Gracie Rose. May she find her way peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge.

Koolio- Thompsons is a thinner product that will soak into the wood, it will protect it but I don't think it will give you a slick washable surface like a polyurethane will. (Someone correct me if you don't agree) I've use a product from Lowes and just got something a little different from Sherwin Williams. SW has 50% off sales sometimes making their stuff cheaper than Lowes.
It will tint the wood but it's not a bad look just sort of a golden hue?? If you are going to do your stalls and tack room I bet you'll need at least 5 gallons. See what you can get that comes in a 5 gal bucket because it will save you some money. But If your going to go to the work of doing it I wouldn't go with anything to cheap because that would defeat the whole purpose
And I would suggest doing it ASAP!!!!That's what I'm doing right now with my stalls and It is so much work!!! We built our stalls in stages over the last two years so some of them I was able to do as they were built but some were built during the cold of the winter and so now I'm having to go back and try to clean them. It's a pain in the butt!!! Not just the dirt but the fly mess is ridiculous.

I'll post some pictures in a bit so you can see our wood before and after, that might help you decide.

Another decision is what finish you want, I think poly comes in satin or ......can think of it, something shiner LOL which is what I went with.

Use Spar varnish, they use it on boats. We use it on all our log railings, etc.

Rob made this sign for Hunter and we painted and then spar varnished. He made one for the tack room door that is similar but says Tack Shack (don't have a pic of that one though)
Make sure to get the real stuff as there are some water based ones but they really suck.

Some samples of spar varnished stuff.
