Glad no one has come over and remarked on my horses' feet - they are all chipped and broken and a mess. I won't be getting to them anytime soon, either. Went for a drive this morning to a few towns around here looking at new trucks - that was dumb - my back flared up so bad I started panicking and couldn't get away from the pain. It's low, right above my sacrum. Went into my first aid bag and found some Tramadol and took two. I had to lay on my side for 3.5 hours with pillows wedged everywhere just trying to relax so my muscles would relax. Hubby and older DD did evening chores. Going to watch a movie on the couch propped up on my side again (I can hobble slowly around to get to the privy at least) and I HOPE I can sleep tonight. I can hardly move, much less turn left or right. If the chupacabre came this eve, I'd make an easy target for sure!

I won't even JOKE about your back. I've had back surgery, so I KNOW what that's all about ....

*hugs*

Me either...back pain is nothing to laugh or joke about! Sounds like a similar pain I went through a few years ago while we were on vacation in Colorado. I was miserable as am sure you are too. Hope you feel better soon cc.

Hope everyone has had a wonderful and safe 4th of July!

I think the fireworks are all over ... even though it was in the distance, we out Gunnie in the pen. He was still a little boogered up when they started rapid fire booming .... Never broke a sweat though ...

I'm glad it's over ..

TG how cool that your DH is getting into horsey activities! Really, do ya think it was the influence of DBA and KC's DH?
I'm also glad that the fireworks are just about done. I witnessed a big fire start up this evening about a half mile away from the place where I board the horses. At first I wondered who was burning trash but then there was more smoke and in no time at all the flames were shooting up out of the tree tops. Wind was blowing it away from us and it wouldn't have jumped the road, but it make me think of what I would do if I had to get my horses out. Got that covered :)
People came with their trucks thinking that we may have to get horses out. I love my horse community here, such nice people. My phone was in the car or I would have taken a pic. Looked like we were in New Mexico!

Out ... I definitely think that seeing the horses at the show has inspired him to work with Gunnie ... also the stories from ks's DH helped him see that horses and even seasoned folks have issues ... He was impressed with how calm and un-nerved dba was with the stallions doing their snorty pawing thing ....

There is definitely a new confidence..

We live less than a mile from a rifle range. The fireworks didn't bother the horses. Now, the dogs, that's another story! Just as I would get to sleep, Digger would start barking! Lol

The noise didn't seem to bother any of ours either. There was only 1 horse in the barn that got a little antsy but his owner gave him some hay and took his mind off the other stuff....
