Howdy TxPaul! Glad you dropped in!


I'm such a lush - we do the buy 6 and get 10% off thing all the time........no wine for me in over a week (faints) since it doesn't go well with back pain meds...a whole week - who ever heard of such a thing? That's as bad as trying to build a chicken coop without beer. That's just crazy.

I like 14 hands too- not too fancy, easy to drink (both their red and white, IMO) and the price is right. For me, it's dark chocolate or lava cake and port. To Die For!

I did find another vinyard I really liked on a wine tour in fredricksberg though. LOVE that place.

Howdy TxPaul, welcome!
KC good to hear that the big gelding is back and doing OK.
It's been a good weekend. Yesterday morning we rode out back of the property.
My colt got all crazy because he couldn't go along. Later when I was putting my mare up he ran over me to get out the gate! He has never done anything like that before. Then when I went to get him I had to wrestle with the gate again (ugh, two-hand gates) to put him back in, and so he took advantage of the situation and nipped my arm. Backed him and scolded him half way across the pen. This morning I lunged him in the arena and he was very relaxed when we were done. In a couple of weeks we will take up ponying again with my mare on the back property. They are both used to their new routines now after the move two weeks ago.
Wine... I love dry reds, am trying different Malbecs and Shiraz, also enjoy a good port. Love the sparkling Spanish Cava's in the summer, too. Oh, and a good rosť such as Anjou. Found one a couple of years ago with earthy tones, don't remember the name but it was to die for. Don't drink much, especially in the summer. Hmmm... Just realized that I am now on a public school issued iPad. Haha I'd better shut up about drinking

LOL! That's really neat that they let you use an Ipad....was just looking at those online. Today (as part of my adventure of getting out of the house - moving slowly of course) we have to go get a new plug/adapter for my daughter's computer - hers was chewed in about 15 places. Gotta love house bunnies. Secretly going to look at Ipads and Kindles if they have them.

I've been watching all kinds of movies while locked down - I get to watch scary movies when DH isn't around. He won't watch them - he says he likes to be able to walk thru the woods at night without feeling like Zombies are following him. I never get that feeling - my fears are more genuine. I worry that I'm going to get chased and sprayed by a rabid skunk and then run into one of those HUGE spider webs with the giant orbweavers splayed over my face and then scream when its little fangs pierce my eye and suck out my eye juice.

Ok - maybe I've watched a few too many.

Someone please turn down the Tejas thermostat?? Geez. Woke up at 7 to go do some more round pen work. 7 and 6 seem to be prime times for any decent work.

Up to riding about 4 days a week now and got the very exciting news that my landlady is lending me her Curly gelding as my official trail pony until Holly is ready for such adventures!

We will be ponying her out on the trail this week. Fingers crossed! So far nothing phases her, but all bets are off when you add in jack rabbits and deer.

How is everyone else dealing with this lovely heat?

DH just came in from working his horse again... they are really starting to gel .... but I don't know who was more sweaty, Gunnie or DH .. both were soaking wet!

We went out on the bikes a while ago and rode through a little rain .. it was beautiful.. then returned home to find that it had rained here.

Yay!
