Sending get well vibes to Thea, KC :( Hope she recovers quickly.

My spoiled horse got about 2 hours of grooming and maybe 20 minutes of work all weekend. I am blown away at how much he's changed in the 5 months I've had him <3.

Dogs are getting along better each day. New pup finally initiated playtime with orig pup for the first time. Which was cute, but I would have appreciated it even more if it wasn't 3am.

Went out and played with the horses yesterday, Cat and Kit are spoiled brats and love being scratched. They made a Jackie sandwich last night, each one on each side of me, pressing in as hard as they can, so they can get scratched harder. Of course I was barefoot, so I had to watch their and my feet. Didn't let them squish me too hard, but I still had to giggle at them. I really need to be more strict, but it's hard! lol

I'll be sure to send healing vibes her way. Just keep us updated.

I remember when Jane first started playing with Link when we brought him home. I was worried that he would just annoy the older dogs and they wouldn't get along at all, so it was pretty exciting to say the least.

Wow KC, that's downright scary. Healing jingles for your friend.

My chiro squeezed me in today, thank God. I went in completely unable to take a full step at a time, shuffling along with little half-steps. Walked out completely normally. Gonna have some sore muscles for a few days, but no pinches or shooting pain! Woot!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'm blown away by the number of people who buy an off the track Thorougbred and assume they can just hop on the next day and ride him like a broke horse. (not a horseforum vent, other boards and real life.)

I was leary of mine at first. Didn't know what training she's had since the track. She was seized from a hunter jumper stable, so I'm presuming something along that line. but she LOVES trail riding! she will hunt out deer trails for us to go on! (Maybe she's trying to brush me off! lol). She's a completely different horse in the middle of a trail, than on a road!
I did jump her once. on accident. She will walk slow, then trot to catch up with others. We were trotting around a corner, and all of a sudden a tree was there, probably 2' off the ground, just just jumped over it like it was nothing!

But, I can just imagine what one would be like just off the track. All they know is run run run!

Note to all working people (and warning for those that will work some day) ..

I you act like a fool at work, get called down for your behavior, threaten to quit and then go home, get drunk, and start sending nasty texts to your co-workers --

Make sure you don't accidently include your boss's boss in those texts.


(and, no, it wasn't me!)
