    Nuisance glad you had a good trail ride. Yay we get pics from you too this weekend!
    I had a nice ride in the arena today, was too wiped out from yardwork to do much else.

    I took Bubba into the round pen today for the first time. He did amazing considering he's usually a psychotic spazz. I got him desensitized to the carrot stick, yielding his quarters beautifully, and taught him how to lunge within 20 minutes! I really should have eaten something beforehand, was shaking the entire time bahaha. There were a couple points where he almost blew up, just because he is so skittish, and at those points we just had to stand there and take a break for a second. Just to stand and breathe. He had obviously calmed down from it as he was licking his lips. After collecting ourselves, I was able to get him moving off just with a point of my finger and getting him to stop by a little tug on the lead. So proud of my little pony. <3

    I also got a little groundwork done with Mr. Grumps aka Henny. He's getting to his "teenager" stage where it's now, "You can't make me!" instead of "Okay mommy!" He does anything I ask him to do, but he consistently gives me his stink face. I've had enough of it and he now KNOWS I've have enough of it.

    And I got some homemade treats made for the boys today. They loved them! Best batch I've made so far after fiddling around with the recipe. Overall a nice, productive Sunday. :)

    Oh, and on a different note, here is a stolen horse in the Dallas area. Please keep an eye out guys and spread the word!

    Just have to say how much I love this thread! It has spoiled me and makes it difficult to read other threads without getting frustrated like that horse looks older than 10, I bet he's at least 18! How can you tell how old a horse is just by looking at a picture, really!!!! Ugh......All that was asked was a confo critque not guess the age!!!! Can you tell it's a Monday for me....ok end rant.

    Happy Monday:)

    I play a mental game with myself on those other threads

    Someone posts "My mare is bred, do you think she's pg?"

    Then I try to guess how many posts it takes for someone to say

    1. Call the vet, we can't tell if she's pg.
    2. Your mare is ugly and shouldn't be bred (paraphrased)
    3. Who is the stallion.
    4. What has the mare/stallion done to deserve to be bred

    Bla bla bla ......

    Then I can think "Oh, it only took 3 replies for someone to tell her her mare wasn't worthy to have a baby .. " .. etc. Makes me crazy.



    OH, and good morning!

    I'll fill ya'll in on my weekend after I get caught up at work..

    Texasgal I feel your pain also.
    The one that always get me is, Do you have the knowledge and facilities to care for the foal for the rest of its life. This is often posted by someone who is looking for another horse to further their riding ability.
    I thought I was the only one to count post Texasgal.
    Foal watch is still at 1 down 2 to go. The other two are getting close though. Shalom

    Yesterday, my 7 year old son & my fiance were introduced to the awesomness of watching your horse buck & fart while it plays in the round pen. I thought my son was going to fall over from laughing so hard.

    How I adore being back in the horse world. Sharing it with my non-horsey family is proving to be quite a blast, too!

    DBA, they are waiting for me to come back so we can take some more pics and you can show them off!!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they foal soon, your other bay mare looked absolutely miserable and ready to pop. And of course so you can get a full nights sleep!
