So wow the wind yesterday had us cancelling lessons. Wind is supposed to be sorta bad today but yesterday it was gusts of 45.

Though we are supposed to be warmer today and tomorrow and heading into the weekend. Hopefully we will get some good riding temps.

Awww, y'all are all such a cute support system. Remind me the next time I break up with a boyfriend to come in here LOL. Just kidding, I don't have one. Even if I did, I ain't got time for that!

But yeah, I'd love to walk with you ONA! Henny needs as much experience as he can get, so it'll be hand walking since I don't have a horse to pony him off of.

Oh, I sold him to a nice family :) I didn't have the time or money for another horse with how expensive it is to keep Henny and it wasn't fair to Gully. So now he's getting mucho spoiled! Couldn't have asked for a better family for him to go to.

Oh that's good ... I was looking at him for my daughter when TA gave him to you ... He's really cute.

Eesh, sounds like slow feed hay bags will be your best friend! Seriously, Henny is on hay 24/7. Sounds like a lot of hay, but it's really only 4-5 flakes. All thanks to his slow feed hay bag

EEEEK is right - hay isn't cheap. I feed my four a round bale a week - they eat every bite of it and waste very little, thank goodness and I feed goats, too. At $60 a bale, it adds up really fast over the month/year. That is why I walk around in a constant state of 'kiss butt' LOL to hubby since he pays for this so I can stay home with my youngest.

Just talking about this the other day - I have so many SAHM friends who give me a hard time (in a nice way) for this - they complain that I don't spend enough $$ on myself in the form of expensive purses/shoes/clothes - I don't need that stuff! They also say it's crazy that I have to schedule things with him when I want to go somewhere/do something to make sure it isn't going to conflict with his down time (he runs a business and works long hours and is very busy and cherishes his quiet time). If I want to go do something on a whim, I should dump the kids and go. They give me a hard time and tell me I need to put my foot down and wear the pants in the family.

Ummm....first of all demanding gets you NO WHERE with a type A personality LOL and second, I'm not so blind as to see the favor he's doing me here...when I decided to stay home, he took over paying for everything without batting a lash. He let me keep all of my critters, my big truck and trailer to meet up with friends from time to time, and he does random fun things like building me a huge chicken coop (and let me stock it with an endless supply of chickens). He built all the raised beds for my garden. He even brought my 100+ yr old piano back to life for my bday one year and even tolerates me playing on it every night. He's a freakin' super hero to me.

They say that isn't enough - I should still be able to do what I want/when I want/spend what I want and not have to answer to anyone - his money is my money - are they kidding?

THe biggest thing? He let me put him on a diet and eats what I feed him and he's lost a nice chunk of weight and is still going down. Now any man who will let you put him on a diet and regulate his Shiner Bock intake is putty in your hands and devoted - why would I want to keep chipping away at it by being demanding and nagging - the man gives me so much already. I love my friends, but they need to give their hubbies a break. A hard-workin' man is a thing to be cherished and taken care of for the long term. Not milked dry, disregarded and tossed to the wind when your done. (allright ladies - don't kill me) LOL!!!

You need to tell them that maybe the REASON your DH does so much for you is because you RESPECT him ...

I work fulltime and still schedule my stuff around DH's downtime and run (most) things past him first.. He does an incredible amount of work on our "farm" .. and indulges me in all my animal fancies...

I, neither, buy the clothes, purses, shoes, hair, or go to the fancy parties ... meh ... all the party I need is barking, whinneying, clucking, crowing, thumping, when I get home everyday!
