    Congrats on the wins, even the 7th! That's an accomplishment! I'm jealous. I look back now, and wish I would have taken my riding more serious, and done something with it. But... I'm happy where I am... I think! Lol

    Thanks! And I was happy, the 7th was HARD WON. Lol had a rail because I didnt release right then had to TROT after a 3'9" vertical because he dodged once he hit the ground on account of a jump crew guy moving in the corner and he spooked, so I lost my stirrup and had to trot till I was 3 strides out of the biggest oxer in the course... lol I got it back then kicked him and well we finished as the fastest 4 faulters ;) hahaha romeo FLEW through the rest of the course after I kicked him. Lol

    Glad everyone is getting to horse around a bit.......TG, your place looks like mine - all trees! LOL!

    Got the horse trailer cleaned out - vacuumed, closet cleaned - the roof leaks -- JOY TO THE WORLD - and high pressure soaped/washed out the horse part. Too lazy to drag out the mats. Found horse feed in every pocket of my hanging organizer on the inside of the tack door (mice storing it in there YUK!) and cleaned out several bird nests from the hay bags that were hanging in trailer. My trailer hasn't moved in months. Next is the outside of the trailer - JOY TO THE WORLD AGAIN - that's a booger to clean. It has tree sap on it - that means a rag, a bucket and a sore shoulder.

    Hubby asked if I was planning on going to a ride that he didn't know about? I said no - I'm probably going to use the back of the trailer to brood chickens again. LOL! What better place is there? Lights, power, water....haha!

    I got tired of waiting for the ole man to rewire my trailer, so I replaced the tail lights, with new LED lights, rewired it (not hard, just attatch new wires to old ones, and pull it thru, attatch to lights). But the turn signals won't work. The plug on my truck has been "hit" by too many trailer hitches, so we thought it was that. Replaced it, it looks much better, but still no turn signals. It's wired exactly as it was prior to me putting new wires on it. The old plug was messed up, so we had to rewire it. Guess I could have spliced a new plug on it, but the wires are old, needed replaced. Tonight, I guess I'll hook DH's to it, to see if they work when plugged to it. If so, then it's a problem in the truck.... I hate wiring. In FFA, my group won State, on how to wire a trailer. My parents came over, "Your a girl, you don't need to be down there doing that!" like I'm helpless!~ lol

    I have 2 words for you CC, Simple Green! Works great for that kind of stuff, just don't let it sit on there too long....

    Ok, now I have some good news, my daughter and her boyfriend are not getting married in June! (sigh of relief) I asked her why they made that decision and she said "daddy said no". I almost busted out laughing but I did not....

    Now here's my rant....sorry in advance. My other daughter has a boyfriend who mentally abuses her, does illegal drugs and she doesn't understand why we won't let her see him, outside of school and church (if he goes). She says he doesn't have a problem nor does he abuse her but today she called wanting to see him off because he's going into rehab (I'll believe it when I see it). Now she doesn't want to come home and wants to stay with DH's aunt and uncle. I'm so stressed over this and am trying so hard to remain calm but it's very difficult! End rant.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

    Thanks for the simple green tip! I have some - never thought about its use towards tree sap...I was thinking gasoline and a torch but I'll try it your way first.

    SOrry to here about your daughter - hope it gets figured out in all of the right ways - it's hard to tell them what you see from the outside when they have those rose colored glasses on. Ugh....my oldest is nearing that age. NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

    Sorry KC, hope it all works out. My daughter was much harder to raise than my son. She's too hard headed, like her dad! Lol good luck!


    Ok, turn signals work on the trailer using DH's truck. DH wasn't home yet (truck is extra vehicle). Called my son who is a mechanic. Asked him, what next? Is there a fuse that controls the trailer turn signals only? He walked me thru, found there are 2 fuses, that each one controls rt or lt trailer turn signals. Both blown. So, going to parts store at lunch tomorrow for new fuses! Now, just have to get that stubborn horse in the trailer, so I can get her to the vet!
