    I haven't been ignoring y'all, just had to work a few more days than planned. One of our colleagues was getting on our nerves complaining about the workload and how tired she was, being a real grouch. Well she began getting dizzy and so went to her doctor, who promptly put her in the hospital for testing since she is extremely anemic and had to be transfused! There is opportunity for more hours ($$$) but I have to get some time off before school starts or I will be the grouchy one

    Monday I'm moving my horses after less than a month at the current boarder. Just didn't work out for several reasons, but mostly because I found a family taking in a few boarders so they can do property improvements. My two horses will have a three acre pasture to themselves with adjacent stalls and they will feed in the a.m. Will be nice to be able to sleep in a little later when school starts and not have to worry about hay in my hair, mud, or horse drool on me as I go to work!

    Oh and now I can join in on the chicken chat since they have a guinea hen with chicks at the new farm I know, they aren't chickens, but close enough...
    They are in a cage up in the little barn right now. Can't wait to see them at work once they are let loose. Do Great Danes work as LGD's? Hope so! They have several on the property.

    Have been working with our favorite resident trainer Palogal with Eli. He has issues with lunging clockwise for the past several months, to the point that he was becoming aggressive with me when asked to go in that direction. Charged me a couple of times, and once when I backed him up to correct him he reared up. That was when I got Palogal on board apparently for whatever reason, he is awkward and uncomfortable, very stiff going clockwise. I went back and watched a video I did a while back and it's obvious. So we are working on just bending him and moving that shoulder over. Who knows maybe it is just him or maybe he injured himself in the pasture...

    Enjoy the weekend everyone! Temps in the low 90's

    Nice saddle rescues, Mamma.
    Good luck with the barn move, ONA.
    Did your chicks arrive, TG?
    Cash worked nicely in the round pen so I let him munch on the rain-induced, lush green grass for a bit while I just admired the handsome boy he's becoming. Spoiled pony, lol.

    Kctop I should have come to the playday. I am working days and had night off to attend.
    Texasgal I hope those new arrivals are all that you expect them to be. You will do fine and they will be OK. PS I have yet to recieve the deposit to ensure peace and tranquility for the new arrivals.
    Outnabout glad the move has increased your hours for sleep.
    If everyone in the DFW area is up for another local meet and greet we should try and replicate the good vibes we shared last month. Also give any that could not attend the chance to meet the wonderful folks they missed out on in JUNE. Nuisance I include you in our group also.
    I am aware that there are plans to have a state wide gathering but I enjoyed the last one so much I want to continue to befriend the members I met in June.
    Kctop and I can't have all the fun ya know. Shalom Donald

    You know you're in trouble when your horse stops dead and you can see his gears turning as he SLOOOOOWLY counts to 10 and says awwwww HECK with this at 8 and DH goes sailing through the air....Poor DH. He always claims he isn't heavy handed and would never get in a horses mouth so against my better judgement I put my myler comfort snaffle (shanked) on the horse he was riding because he said he was having too much trouble stopping him (he hasn't figured the deepseat/release breath connection yet).... and off he came. All ended well though, put the bit he and the horse normally ride together in and finished out the morning with no problems. DC was working in the ring with me on my mare and was impressed to see dad dust himself off admit he was wrong, ask for the other bit and get back on. Now to get the shafts on the cart so I can work my big mare.... Have a great day y'all!

    Just a reminder to everyone in the area! The tack trade will be on August 17th at the Expo center here in Bryan. Heard it starts early in the morning and goes till around 1-2. Not sure the exact hours. Plan to have a booth next year!
