And because I'm a little behind on my shameless Irish plugging this month:

Famous symbols of Ireland…

The harp is the national symbol of Ireland,


(and also a really good Irish lager)



the Celtic cross, (in so many forms)




the shamrock



and the Irish wolfhound (as mentioned last week)



are all well known Irish symbols.

WW, about the arena footing - mine is a natural sandy type soil and I keep it turned over but packed a bit too, so that it never gets more than about 4 inches deep - but I do a lot of dressage and my horses need to be able to keep their feet light underneath them and deeper would make it harder for half passes and such- but on the western front I would think that if you do a good reining stop and your horse is buried in dirt up to his cannons afterward, that is deep enough to mess with suspensories and deep flexors so I'd tread lightly if it was that deep.

Sorry to hear about the annoying heavy handed person - there is one in every crowd - it is hard to ignore - some of that stuff you can't help but take it home with you at night and wonder about it b/c it is so backwards.

My big red rooster has a bum leg! Don't know how - just found him sitting down a lot yesterday. I know it somehow emasculates them to be picked up and petted, but at what other time do you get to be up close and personal with a 10lb red sussex with an attitude?

One of my little peeps wasn't doing to well yesterday eve - seems she couldn't quite grasp the idea of food and water so I put some sugar water in a syringe and she would drink the drops on the end. I soaked some of the crumbles up and made a mash and put her and her sugar water right there together. She was running around pretty good an hour later (after she figured out the eating part) and today, so far so good. It was one of my silver laced polish designer chickens (potentially show birds) so I took the extra time to play nursemaid. After all those chickens cost a whole dollar more than the other chickens...

I'm still working on hubby about getting the wee one into a program twice a week to hang out with other children her age. Imagine what a person could do with just a couple of hours twice a week - condition a horse maybe? You betcha!! It would be slow but enough to do a 25 by fall for sure.........

Congrats on your weight loss! That has to be an awesome feeling. It will be fun working with Lil to get her going. Has she gained much weight since you got her?

Thank you! I've lost 65lbs so far! didn't think I'd ever do it! I feel so much better. I think that's why I keep hurting myself, I'm more active! lol

Lil has gained about 100 lbs, needs another 150-200. she was pretty skinny. Can't wait to start riding her, once she's at an appropriate weight.
