Well, frustration over here - the costume isn't coming out to be the picture I had in my head. I'm trying to decide if I want to continue on or just stop and give it up and save finishing it for a rainy day project instead of trying to get it done by Friday. Here is half of it - the skirt has two bustles in the back and a train that I have not completed yet b/c I don't like the way the costume fits so far. To make it fit right, I'm going to have to take out the zipper in the back and lace it up like a corset and that's another couple of hours of work. The bodice is lined and has boning so that is a pain to rework.

I am also out of Dr Pepper here at the house. When I sew, I must have Dr Pepper.

Oh trust me, he is definitely in denial. No matter how many times I say he's dangerous, he says "Noooo, he's harmless! Prancer(such a weirdname for such a disrespectful horse) wouldn't hurt a fly!" And that's end of conversation, it's like he goes deaf. Irritates me to no end.

Ems, I hope she comes out okay! Can you put her in your other trailer? I've heard that helps induce pooping thoughts.

CC, your costume looks great so far! Instead of training out the zipper and making it a corset, could you just take in some material on the sides? It might be easier through I don't know with the boning or how it would affect the fitting. -no help-

I thought I would pop into here to ask, but anybody know a good lesson barn/trainer around the San Antonio area? I'm down here until end of September and would love to find somebody to get a few lessons and get my riding form back into proper shape.

Sorry the costume isn't coming out to your liking. I always see TONS of issues in my sewing projects that the general public wouldn't see. Hope you find a reasonable fix.

I was so concerned with my suddenly agitated horse tonight, I didn't realize we were standing in biting ants until they were inside my jeans up to my calves. Not too bad in the grand scheme of things but several large, hot, red, seriously itchy patches are annoying.

Ration Balancer .. I'm switching.

I bought Enrich 32 yesterday. So my crew is getting good quality grass hay, rice bran, and Enrich 32 (1/2 cup to start) and a token handful of whole oats (so the chickens will spread the manure) . Gunnie is getting his Vita-calm also ...

I'm thinking about adding rice bran to my mares feed. I keep her working so much I think she's burning more than she's eating. She's not losing but I want her to beef up a little, what are your thoughts?
