Back to the baby hair.
Born with a head of hair and hair on their back, it then sheds, and they end up with a nice crop on their heads.

However, as they age, the hair again sheds fron the head and lands on the shoulders chest and back, is it a sign. Is time coming to an end. Or has nature steped in and giving me that gorilla look just to keep my wife at bay, or is it just something for her to poke jokes at, having more hair on my shoulders than my head.

Its hard being a man.

Now I have depressed everyone. Im off to the over thirty thread to do a little stiring.

Boots-congrats on your new horse! I just bought one myself yesterday,just on pictures & talking to the woman that bought her a month ago-w/the purpose of rehoming her, as she is too small for her, but perfect for me! I will go pick her up in 2 weeks after my already planned (2) trips are over. I haven't gone anywhere for a year & a half, and now I'll be in 4 different states this month! Life is certainly strange!

Boots - nice looking horse. Congrats!

I went riding yesterday with a co-worker on her horse. A nice, slow qh and a short ride (only 2.5 km). First time up this year and OMG can my legs and sitting bones feel it!

I think it's good when you're over 50 to keep limber. My legs don't agree, but pfffft what do they know?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

Thought I'd start an over 64 thread than realised I'd be there on my own and would have to talk to myself. I do enough of that when awake I dont need to write it down as well.

I have two days off for a cattle drive and it is bucketing down cats and dogs. Thunder and lightening. Not a good look for Thursday so the drive has been put off until Friday and Saturday I will now only be able to go Friday as my trade off at work was to be there on Saturday, ****. Time I retired and went riding.

My former horse boss is 66 and still playing tournament polo. Youngest daughter works for a guy, 72, who still plays and likes bringing young horses along best. But, they aren't computer savvy, so they couldn't help you on your new thread. Guess you'll just have to put up with some of us pups.

That's a shame about the rain. I've been on the other end, where most of my crew only had certain days to help and then the weather blows those plans away.

It's okay if you talk to yourself, it's okay if you get an answer.

It's when you get a third voice in there taking sides that you need to seek professional help

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Oh dear, more expense a professional, or is horse wispering not included unless it responds, with No, I'm not getting in the trailer.

Actually at my age I'm allowed a talking horse. Most Americian families had one, he was called Mr Ed. I feel better already in the knowledge I am not alone there are millions out there like me.

Now to go and get Bugs bring him home and spend the rest of the day talking to him in preperation for friday. Another reason to go out is my wife has started to wash the windows and that means I'm about to get the look.

Why is it when a man gets to sit down and relax some one will find a job for him to do.
