    Oh I so know that feeling cc. I havent riden in over a week and I feel like I'm going crazy!

    On a good note, we got new barn kitty's! My sister works with garland animal control and got us some kitty's that are unadoptable because they aren't really people friendly and should make great barn cats. They are so cute and playing in their kennel right now but sis says they are meaner than he11.

    Good morning, Texans! Hope today is a good start to a good week for all. Extra thoughts to TG as you start the new job! Good luck with the 1st day of school, Outnabout & Palogal & everyone's kiddos! Howdy, lilbit, sorry I'm late to the welcoming party.

    Exhausted from my weekend, but it was good. I should have batted a few less rounds in the batting cage - my right arm is so achy I can barely raise my coffee cup. Not cool on a Monday morning ;)

    ((((((DEB)))) big hugs. Good luck with first day at new job, and home front!

    Had a nice ride at Lake Waurika Saturday. 13 of us. Ended up getting almost too hot. Thank goodness I took enough water in my saddle bags, half froze, half refrigerated, so by the time the cold ones were gone, the frozen ones were defrosted enough to drink cold.

    Hugs TG. I agree with DB they sound like they are competing for attention. I works really well in this house. I don't miss new kitties but I do love them. We finally convinced my child's to sleep at the foot of the bed. Hope this means we can start turning out the light... Second week of school for us and the chill on the breeze this am was welcome. We are supposed to have a week with NO rain!!!!!! Hope this turns out to be true. One of my drafts is having separation between the frog/sole and heel. Messy, nasty and painful. Treating it as suggested isn't doing much. Welcome Lilbit! ETA Hello and a GOOD Monday morning to all.

    My friend and I had a scare Saturday on the way back from our ride. I was going down the highway, 70mph, my truck, 4 horse trailer, 2 horses. And some *******, coming towards me, decides he is going to turn, and doesn't realize there isn't enough room between us, so instead of gunning it on across, they stop dead across my lane! This is an old '63 model horse trailer, IRON, HEAVY, I don't stop fast, I slam on the breaks, and luckily else is coming at me in other lane, so I swerve over, I hear/feel the horses scrambling to stay on their feet (they didn't go down), the trailer starts fish tailing, I miss the guys bumper my meer inches!!! My heart is in my stomach, my stomach is in my throat, feel like I've been splashed with cold water! Trailer finally straightens up, Horses are up on their feet, they're ok. I don't stop, because my friend want to whip some ass! I didn't want to go to jail! It would have hurt us bad if I had broadsided them, probably killed the horses.... I haven't told her yet, but I realized after I dropped her off..... The air bag on passenger side is turned off, because usually the only passenger is grandkids! It would have killed her! Air bag is now on! God was looking after us that day!

    Wow! Thank God you were able to miss him. The thought of jail has stopped me a few times from coming unleashed on dumb drivers too. Hope it scarred the s**t out of him though. Glad y'all are ok :)

    Wow, Nu, that is scary. I wish stupid people wouldn't drive, they make the world more dangerous for all of us.

    TG, .


    I had a productive day. Had a couple of horses who needed sheaths cleaned. I SURVIVED!!! LOL

    The old guy, Nester, is a trip about it. He's one of those that stretches out and picks a leg up like "Oooohhh, yyeeeaaaaahhhhhh".

    The other was Pokey, who'd never had it done, and I was a little scared to even try him. For those who don't know, Pokey is a very sensitive and reactive horse that has never been gentle...and likely never will be gentle. Do something that scares him or makes him uncomfortable and he'll break things and tear down barns trying to get away. He's not malicious about anything he does, he's just not people friendly at all.

    Well, he only acted like he wanted to kick a couple of times (squirm, pick up a leg, and give me the stink eye), but I talked him through it. He would not drop, which I expected, so I just had to do the best I could. I bet he's glad I did though, got a bean almost the size of a quarter out of there. I suspect it was bothering him because he visibly relaxed right after that.


    Whew!!

    Crap NU! That was scary! Ya'll think I'm joking when I say I hate college towns - especially when school starts .... we just got invaded by 14000 18 yr old drivers. You should see the wrecks at every intersection especially around campus. I counted 6 on Saturday just driving from south of town to the north side.

    I want a bumper sticker to put on my horse trailer that says something like:

    GO AHEAD and tailgate. I wanted a bigger, fancier trailer anyway!
