HOly cow Sharpie! SO glad you are ok - that happened so quick!

Those bunny pics are so cute! I love them. My Dutch Belted is a spring 05 bunny - so she is nearing the end of her lifespan. Just recently over the past few months she no longer can jump onto the couch from the floor to nap with us while we watch TV at night and she takes lots of naps nowadays. ;-(

My hubby was sponsoring a thing out of town Fri thru Saturday for work, so I dropped the girls off with grandma first thing Saturday morning, packed a cooler and drove until land met water. Sitting on the beach by myself watching the waves and the pelicans was sooooooooo relaxing. I walked and walked for about an hour and then finally hopped in the truck and drove around town looking at the new shops and finding new restaurants that I could come back to and investigate when I had more time.

No signs of hurricanes - Galveston has really put itself back together. WOW the traffic in front of Pleasure Pier. That is crazy! And parking was wild, too. By 1pm on Saturday afternoon, that entire beachfront was hopping with people and tourists and all of the streets up and down the city blocks along the seawall were lined with cars. Stay away from the beach on Saturdays - unless you get a hotel for the weekend where you can park your car and just walk everywhere b/c you certainly can't drive.

HOWEVER - motorcycles were everywhere. Now that looks like fun. Only problems is, I don't think I'd survive 290, 610 and I45 on a motorcycle just to get to the beach - just the other day we rode the bike to Joe's just of off I45 and Ritchey (sp?) and that little jog on the interstate worried me something awful. It's like having too many eggs in one basket - I don't want to orphan my children! Will I do it again? Of course.

NO FOALS YET!! + NOT MUCH SLEEP= a very tired grumpy old man.
Sharpie I have a mare that can decide to play bronco sometimes when she is feeling extra frisky. Or you shift in the saddle too much.
Last time I got bucked off the saddle horn connected with the very sensitive area we men have and the rest is history.
I didnt have to go to the emergency room but like all men this happens to for a few minutes I thought death would be a merciful end.
Take care everyone and wish very hard for these mares to understand they are not storage bins and those foals need excercise. Shalom

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!

Yeah I haven't had a horse since mine died in 2005. He was my everything. One of the hardest days of my life! I had had him since I was 7 and he was "18 yrs old" aka 29/30 lol.

Thanks for the invite. And if I do get him we can ride together :)

CC where do you live? Next time you go down to Galveston, walk the strand and you will find so many awesome shops. For my birthday last year, my friends and I got a hotel room near the sea wall and spent the weekend at the beach and walking the strand. Soooo much fun!

Sharpie so glad you are ok! Thank goodness you were wearing a helmet. Makes me feel guilty for not wearing one.

I have no idea what a "barn" name is or how it is different from a "show" name and or registered name. We use a name from the registered name.
Black Lady Charabi is Lady, Desert Dancer is Dancer.
Or we use the name the previous owners used. Shalom

Stars Black Magic is nice!
Planted Rosemary, mint, basil, tomato, jalapeno, azaleas & hostas. Then bathed my horse. Now I want a nap.
