    I don't blanket any horse now.. period. I used to when I showed ... years ago.

    Dba ... all that fuss over THREE (3) mares ... *rolls eyes*

    (I refuse to talk about weight.. ugh)

    I have made a decision to "take authority" over my body though .. lol .. still researching the best way to do that. Unfortunately, it looks like "exercise more and eat less to burn more calories than you take in" is still the best way ..

    *sigh*

    Happy Tuesday!

    Happy Tuesday!

    DB, hoping the mares don't give you too much trouble. I heard that they like to wait til you're not watching and you look over and there's a baby!

    I will have to do that too... Before anyone jumps on me, no, wasn't planned, but I'm dealing with it and we are at a new place with a no-stallion rule! And yes, she was in a separate pasture away from the stallions pasture. Long, unhappy story, so don't want to get into it. She should be due in May.

    Hope everyone is having a fun Tuesday and good plans for the weekend!

    As for the weight rule, that would mean I would need to lose weight to ride my horses, which would make me a skeleton. Hm, doesn't sound healthy. And I'm 5'7... So yeah, a wee bit bogus it seems...

    Ageed tg, so let's talk riding, anyone done any lately? I have to say I'm extatic over my mares progress recently. It's almost like the light bulb finally came on. She's coming around and using her rear end and really starting to use those muscles the right way. She no longer has a hollow neck and just looks great! She still ansy when mounting and runs around with her tongue hanging out but not as bad as she used too.:)

    Well, I covered EVERYTHING. It looks like a linen sale in my back yard. The freeze may have nipped here and there at some of my tall tomatoes, but I don't think there will be any losses.

    My youngest started preschool two days a week (half days) last week. This week she is good to go being dropped off and I don't have to stay and hang out anymore.

    Just dropped her off this morning - I don't have to get her until 2pm. Guess where mommy is going? Mommy is going to pick a victim out of the pasture, set a time alarm on my phone (so I don't forget to pick up my kid) and am going to disappear on 4 legs for the entire time.

    See you guys later! FINALLY! IT"S HAPPENING! I"M FINALLY starting to get a life again! Whoo hoo!

    That is awesome cc! I made the mistake of telling my girls my 2 girlfriends and I are going to canton on Friday, now they want to go. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love shopping with my girls but would prefer this venture with just my friends:) In short,cc, it never ends, my girls are 18 and 20 and I still hear momma this andand momma that but I love it, just not all the time:)

    Kiara .. I want to make absolute certain that you know that NOBODY is going to jump on you in this thread. If you want to post pics or talk about her situation .. this is the place to do it.

    We have a strict "no crap" policy here.

    It's the friendliest thread on the forum!

    I rode my lease horse on Sunday. He's a super sweet Paint who knew just the very basics. I've been trying to add some finess to appease my inner-trainer-self, even if it's not technically necessary for his career as a trail horse. Very exciting when he picked up that formerly-elusive right lead every time I asked. Guess I've overdone the neckreining practice, though, since he wants to walk circles from neck rein pressure rather than merely turning...

    Yes, we would love to see pics kiara:) This is a no crap zone thread, you might get teased a little about something but never jumped on about your ponies or any other animal. If someone new comes in and does it, they'll be advised of the rules in a friendly Texas way of course:)

    Glad everyone is getting to ride... one of these days, I'll have a horse at home I can ride! Lol

    Kiara, accidents happen, no matter what the "others" say on other treads, sh..tuff happens! My mare is due 5/27, my birthday is 5/28. So guess what I'm getting for my birthday! Either early or late, but a bundle of joy no less!

    I'm jealous of all these little babies. I've only been around the weanlings, never the babies:( I'm going to get my chance though:))))
