    Hi everyone. Lots of good things going on in our neck of the woods! Kayella Henny is as cute as ever. I have really enjoyed watching him grow here. My colt went through the gelding thing about this time last year. I couldn't watch when he fell to the ground with the anaesthesia, but helped the vet with holding something I don't remember what. Then after she cut him she says "look, here they are!" And I couldn't look then either. I was just relieved when be came to and stood up. And of course the swelling is awful for a while.
    Nuisance I am also seriously thinking of doing that trailride and will tell my riding buddies about it too.
    Great weekend, was off my pt-time job and also had today off. Found a used truck I want Friday, deal should be finalized tomorrow once the dealer (it was a trade-in) gives me a diagnosis and cost for the repair it needs, then we'll talk warranty, etc.
    Spent yesterday at the Ft. Worth Stock Show, started with Chris Cox demo. The gelding I took a fancy to , watching his videos at his stall, wasn't so smooth in the ranch horse show, not that I was needing a ranch horse anyway haha. Going back Thursday for Mustang Magic.
    WWarrior, my mare was like that, too when I first started riding her, running like her tail was on fire. I just let her go until she slowed down. Now if I don't ride her for several days she is like that. Funny how she is bratty at a trot but then I vet her into a lope, let her get it out of her system, and then she is awesome and light.
    I am in awe of you, TG and Clippity for having time for poultry and rabbits in addition to horses!

    The bunnies are so cute!

    Outnabout, good to hear you are having a good time and yeay on the truck.

    TBJ, congrats and yes, that's close, but you'll do great!

    My old man had some fun yesterday. He decided to sneak by as the BM's husband was bringing in some food and take a run around the other pasture. He of course didn't want to be caught. Treats didn't work, so they tried corralling him back into his pasture. That didn't work either, just made him more hyper. So they called me. I came over, he was prancing around tail up, head arched and being a fruit loop. They told me he is fast. Well, yes, he has some pretty nice racing lines and has raced himself. Luckily, I have had this discussion with him before. I have always made of point of not letting him get away with not being caught. So I walked up to him asking what he was doing. Got a halter, put it on and walked him back into his pasture. Silly old man. Was feeling wild and free. Once I put him back up, he remembered that he's out of shape and was breathing hard. He was quite wet, having a winter coat running around in 70 degree weather. So he proceeded to roll in the sand, like he loves to do. I hosed him off once he had calmed down. My poor "little" girl was drenched too as she was very upset he had left her. I guess I need to work on some separation between the two... So she got a bath as well. And as I was hosing off the rack, she wouldn't leave me alone. So She ended up drinking from the hose and having me hose underneath her and up her hind legs without her caring at all. Until I hosed her butt. She is still a little skittish about that, but she did so much better than before. She doesn't care about water on her head. She sticks her head in the hose without a care.

    *Sigh* my little fruitloops. Gotta love 'em

    So guys, horse update. Its a no on the German TB because he is just too far away and too high a price tag. Id have to pay for the shipping and the week of barn board and that alone is 2K, so I personally don't have the cash. On a happy note, my boyfriend has found me a grand prix prospect down near where he lives for under 25K so im soooo pumped to possibly test that one. Other than that, all our options are seemingly getting snatched up by our enemies.

    One of my mares did the same thing this weekend. Our yard is fenced in and the gate to the road was closed, thank goodness. But, DH left the gate open to the pasture as he drove his tractor in. My mare sees an open gate, runs flat out thru it, tail up, bucking, snorting. She sees me walks up, sniffs me, turns and runs again. Chases the dog for awhile, all the while bucking and snorting. Finally she runs back in the pasture. THen, stands there huffing and puffing, she forgot she's 7 month pregnant and a chunky butt! Lol
