    After the horses were trimmed, my farrier worked with my new mare (the rescue...that's why she's skinny) for almost 3 hrs. Never got her inthe trailer. She will stand with her knees touching the trailer and her head inside. That's as far as I got her also. He took her over to our flat bed, car hauling trailer. She walked right on up. But won't friggin go in a horse trailer! GGGGRRRRR!!!!!

    TG. When my mare injured her hoof last year and had to be on stall rest. She did her share of bucking/rearing in one place. With a cast on.!

    I was going to share the video. But it won't let me...

    Kiara - good luck with school - nothing wrong with focusing on that so you can do it right and be successful.

    I hope your leg gets better!

    Great weekend here - got lots of gardening done, got the new bed put in and mostly filled with dirt. Brother-n-law showed up with a new little peach tree and apple tree. Then the crazy people showed up.

    Our neighbors came over to see how we were doing and brought their kids (4 and 3) and their dog (which they never leash) and altho we do enjoy their company, for the past 5 visits in a row, something gets broken or ruined or my leather couch gets peed on because they don't want to get up to go pee because they are too absorbed in the TV. The dog chases my waterfowl and poultry and I've asked them to hold their dog many a time and offered them a leash (then they realized I wasn't joking) and absolutely NO DOGS are allowed in the pens with my animals or my garden.

    There we were - in the garden and here comes their dog - came under the gate - and there she goes across my freshly tilled and planted rows and beds - I hollered at them to get the dog and they just stood there - I grabbed my rake and went after the dog to corner her - reached down and grabbed her under one arm (30lb dog not heavy) and carried the rake in my other - she ripped my shirt in the back in three places and clawed my back to bits with her hind legs while she fought me and cried - I threw her out the garden and they just kept on with the conversation like nothing happened. Second time the dog came in, I hollered that the dog needs to go home NOW. It was a bit more rude, but then they chased their own dog out that time.

    The kids are so confined and restricted with what they are allowed to do to the point that when they go somewhere in public (or my house for instance) they go crazy getting into everything. THey have no sense as to what is right or wrong - they just go for it. They took a large container of diesel that I was using to burn wood and leaves and promptly watered a row of my 1 yr old parsley with it.

    The number of times we invite them to our house have these long stretches in between that are getting longer- in fact, we've actually stopped inviting them over for dinner - their kids have broken things in my office, stuck toys between my piano keys - etc - I have to watch their children b/c they just turn them loose and sit on the patio. They grew up in an environment where everything was bare on the walls 4 foot down -they are not allowed ANY TV of any type whatsoever - then they come here where my house is not kid proof by any means, (I shouldn't have to kid proof my house just for others' children)and go into my office, climb on the desk and break the glass out of all of the picture frames. I pad lock my bunny and bird cage when they come.

    I've come home many a time and found my baby goats out wandering around the house unprotected and the gate latched improperly at the goat pen - the mama were hollering and calling ... couldn't figure out why the gate was latched differently than how I do it - come to find out they were coming over during the day at random times to help themselves to play/pet my goats and animals. So I started padlocking the pens.

    We LOVE to share the farm with kids - it is such a great experience. But these guys are going to have to stay home for awhile until they grow out of whatever phase they are in and the dog dies of old age I guess.

    BLAH!

    Wow, that sounds awful. Sounds like you need to have a sit-down talk with the parents and be very direct with them about their responsibilities when their kids and dog at your place. If they don't follow your rules on your property, they are not allowed back. At least that's how it should work, but knowing reality, it isn't that easy... From what you wrote, the parents are not eager to listen to you. Sucks. Something needs to happen though, especially if they come over to your house randomly and mess with your animals. What if they get hurt? Jeez.

    I hope you can find a permanent solution to the problem. Finger's crossed for you.

    Thank you, my leg is better today. And yes, I'm trying to get this school work done so I can be done with school and move on. It will be nice to have some time again

    Well here we go with Monday again! According to my son, it's the shortest horror story ever:)

    We had an Awesome weekend. Spent the entire day at the stock show on Friday then my boss took DH and I to dinner at the Reatta at the Rodeo:) Took my daughter prom dress shopping on Saturday and we actually bought one the first time out this year. Then Saturday night, I worked and rode my mare and she was an absolute dream, I was so excited!!! The ground work I've been doing with her appears to be paying off:)

    Got up and went to church yesterday morning, hada nice lunch then went to the barn and a super bowl party (one stop shop). Got both my horses rode yesterday!

    The only thing that threw me for a loop was my eldest daughter (20) saying her and her boyfriend want to get married in June (when he is home on leave) sigh**** They've only been dating since December and he's only been here for about 2 weeks during that time but they've known each other for 10+ years. What to do, what to do???????
