    Hey Texas Peeps! :)

    Around last summer my mother-in-law's friend had separated from her husband and wasn't going to be able to keep her horse. She knows that I have grown up around horses and have knowledge, experience and that I would be a good home for him and so she gave me first debs on her horse. I was just about to go and take a look at him when my MIL said that her friend had gotten back together with her husband so she was keeping the horse. Ok, no biggy. Glad they were able to get back together.

    Fast forward to this morning..... My MIL called my husband to tell him that her friend and the husband have separated and are for sure getting a divorce :( She is now looking once again to find her horse a new home. She was trying to get a hold of my MIL but was unable to so her neighbors said they would take the horse. She finally got a hold of my MIL but it was a little too late cause now the neighbors have first choice if they wanted but the friend isn't to sure about the horse going with them. They aren't really in the position to be ridding now due to surgeries and they made a comment about if they can't afford the horse cause of their finances right now, they will just give it back to my MIL ( The horse has been moved to my MIL since the divorcing couple are selling their place. They live 1/4 mile down the road.)

    Soooooooooo My POINT......finally. We are going to look at him tomorrow at my in-laws place. If the neighbors opt out or the friend says no, we get him IF we like him. If the neighbors do take him they want me to ride him to keep him in riding shape. Everything is kind of complicated right now. My heads spinning a little. Im a thinker and planner and I like straight forward YES and NOs.

    TO BE CONTINUED.......

    Just have to say it's been a gorgeous day to be outside riding horses. Dh ended up riding my mare in the rodeo and the preachers son rode dh's mare. They all did fabulous!!!!!! I rode my mare in between events, I was so proud of her. We are almost ready for the sorting pens:)

    There's a first time for everything, they say. Including my first concussion!

    Jayne has never bucked under saddle in the two years I've been riding him (nearly daily)- not even offered or seemed to thing about it. Once he made a threat to kick a horse that was riding up his butt, that's the worst. Until today anyhow! Cantering across the pasture goes from canter, then he bolts forward a stride and starts bucking like his life depends on it. I'm off over his shoulder on the first one, land on my head, bust my helmet and out cold. He continues bucking like a bronc according to my friends riding with us. Full head down, heels to the sky bucking all the way to the gate and then more bucking in the round-pen where they put him after they catch him.

    Quick ride to the ER that I don't really remember, a CT scan, and a hell of a headache later and I'm fine. Going to have to really check out the horse tomorrow though- for a horse who just doesn't buck to pull something like that I have got to wonder if he was the stereotypical 'musta been stung' or something else. Can't imagine he's all of the sudden pull that for no reason. But dang, even with the hydrocodone my head still hurts.

    Yikes, Sharpie! Glad you're ok!

    Sounds like you had a fun day kctop, woot woot!

    Fkcb - I hope the horse works out for you, if you really want it to. Hopefully it doesn't go to the neighbors who aren't properly able to care for it.

    Db - How are the greedy baby hoarders?

    Dang Sharpie! Glad your ok. Hope your head starts feeling better.

    Thanks Ems :) I really want a horse but I don't want to force something that isn't meant to be. If they don't and we don't then my mom might. Her horse Big Boy just turned 28 in March I believe, so she's needing another baby. Im in physical pain not having a horse. A piece of me feels missing. (I know that's dramatic but that's how it feels LOL)

    I think that's a great perspective and mindset to go into it with. It will all work out how it should.

    I know what you mean about feeling empty without a horse. I didn't have any for a couple years after my mare passed. Then, I got another mare, and a gelding, a colt, and now have a new foal.....LOL

    Hey when I get there in June you will just have too come over and ride mine with me then if you don't get it!
