    I, too am in my 6th decade, and no longer take on the "problem" horses. Got a real nice Morgan mare last month-we are learning each other.

    I also got the mare in my avatar a few weeks ago. Got down to 1 horse when my balance and health went south awhile back. Then the old horse died a couple of years ago and thought I would not get another one. But got the saddle fever too bad...I couldnt resist. Feels good to be back in the saddle again.

    If there has been only one thing I have learnt about horses it is this Its not a problem horse untill i've had it a year, then if it has not change its a problem and not always the horse.

    You hit the nail on the head with. We are learning each other.!! And that takes time. I have Bugs and its coming up to a year however with the lack of riding we are still learning each others signals we are both improving though some what slowly. With summer coming on I expect to be well into training by the new year, and with a little luck Bugs will have improved also. I hit 65 next month.

    Ben has now gone, and I only have 3 horses at home, I'm even looking, thinking, maybe, possibly of selling Angel, the 2 year old. Do I really want to start her, life is simpler only having sensible horses around. Gah, I feel old.

    That's what I did a couple of years ago. Sold all the green broke horses (except Chip) and bought one well broke gelding. So I now have two. MUCH easier to manage and whenever I want to go for a ride, hop on Nick! Otherwise I can leave them in the field and don't feel I "have" to work a greenie every day.

    Very good. Not easy to make. I posted these instructions in 1996. One of several versions I made. People wanted to know how to make one and no one would tell how. So with the help of several other people contributing fiador knot and other knot I made the instructions:

    Daughter Teri and granddaughter Quinn are coming over today to make up some Christmas Cookies! We will bake them, then freeze them for later.

    I'll eat them all if we don't LOL!

    Getting into the Yuletide spirit already!

    Thanks for that one Cenpro, the one I made yesterday doesn't have a fiador knot, but I am going to try one today that does, I found this great video this morning


    I've done it a couple of times with my thin rope, and it worked great, so now to try with the thicker one. The male side of the family will be watching the big game this afternoon, so I can happily sit here tying knots and pretending to watch.
