Wel he knows it he's just really really out of shape and I've also had 2months out of the loop but was working consistently on barrels for the last 3 years with horrible horse luck.
I'm just lucky to have a trainer willing to lend me her horses and train me for free. Without her I wouldn't be riding right now.

I've had horrible luck, too! My last horse gave me a dent in my leg that has no feeling in or around it.. It is now about 9 months old and hasn't changed a bit. I'm pretty sure I finally found my heart horse and am hoping for MANY years to come with him!

You are definitely lucky! I never had a trainer (until English lessons last year). If my horses were out, then they were out and I had no others to race. Plenty others to ride, but only two of them were finished barrel horses.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Yeah that's how I was but never ridden a finished horse till hers. Sugar is not finished but he knows he pattern well haha. The last horse I rode was a hot hot arab gelding who had so many issues youd fix one and eight others would surface, he ran me straight through a fence slamming my knee and pulling me off in the process which still has problems. I loved him but it was best I moved on. I hope to finally get another horse soon as my trainer and her husband are wanting to move to texas by this summer and I wont have the luxury of riding anymore.

Hope you and your horse have many years :).

Guys please tell me I'm being stupid :P

Both my dogs are going to the vets today, one definitely needs surgery [mouth surgery, she needs at least two teeth out] but she's 13 and with her age that adds a lot of risk to the whole endeavour. I've had her since I was 5, and I can't imagine my life without her. The other one has something wrong with a hip and I'm petrified that that might be something serious too :/ she probably needs xrays to get a definite diagnosis.

My poor bank account! Hahaha

Anyway I'm absolutely petrified that something will go wrong and I'll lose one or both.

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

BRArabian - I hope you get a new horse, too! & thank you! I really hope we have a lot of years together as well.

Blue eyed - I thought I posted a response YESTERDAY morning! *face palm* Anyhoo, I don't think you are being stupid. I know how it feels to lose a dog that has been with you practically your whole life. My Boxer was brought into the family before me! I have so many pictures - and memories - with him that it is unreal. He died when I was eleven. I still get sad when I talk about him, but I realize that he is not in any pain anymore. He died peacefully in his sleep. I hope all goes well with both of yours!!

I've lost pets before, but my grumpy old witch is special. For the mouth surgery she has to be under for a while.

Vet listened to her heart though and said that sounded nice and strong, and older dogs get less of the drugs anyway, so she should be fine. There IS a risk but for her, it's not very high compared to most dogs her age. She's going in on Friday... she'll likely be at the vets all day from early in the morning to late afternoon/early evening.

Good luck with that!! I hope she pulls through, and I'm glad to hear that she has a good chance.

thanks :) grumpy old witch is at my feet at the moment. It needs to be tomorrow already. Ugh haha. I hate waiting.

Hey so does anyone else "farm" predator bugs to control the number of pest bugs? We cultivate daddy long legs spiders to control the nasty ones like white tails and redbacks. Best part of that pest control method is that it costs nothing!

I'm thinking about buying some fly predators to try to cut down the number of flies we have! It's horrible. Hahaha. Need mosquito predators out where I work, though, those are the worst.
