    Whew, having to get on here when I have a moment to catch up with everyone! DBA, so glad to hear that things are moving along for you.
    Had another busy weekend, met up with TETRA folks Saturday. I didn't ride because the mare I was going to borrow just didn't work out. She's used for little kid rides at camp and hadn't been used much for a couple of months. Went to check her out Thursday. She was pawing while tied when I groomed her, tried to kick a couple times when I picked her back feet, didn't want to stand still for mounting, and once I got on took off like a rocket...and she is also missing an eye. Bad equation for a trail ride just two days later! My farrier thinks that my mare will be ready to ride again in about three weeks.

    Have been working with Eli just about every day. This week I'm going to find some more "stuff" around the property for us to work with. I wish we had poles.

    Helmets... I have a nice IRH one I wear if I'm on a horse I don't know, riding where there are lots of rocks (i.e., the Hill Country!) and I will certainly wear one once we get Eli under saddle. I really like it, once it's on I forget it's there.

    Back to work!

    DBA, it is a good thing you keep checking in on us - you certainly don't want to take a chance and miss any of our bad jokes.

    Helmets - I like Tipperary. Was a Troxel fan for years - never owned an Ovation. I like the looks of the suede brown leather Troxels that they have in different styles these days and am considering one of those Troxel Venturas. The Tipperary I have now is several years old. I haven't crashed in it (thank goodness) but it's been living in the trailer and just with the fact that I've dropped it a few times makes me wonder about the integrity of the materials at this point.

    Speaking of jokes:

    ---A preacher goes to a nursing home to meet an elderly parishioner. As he
    Is sitting there he notices this bowl of peanuts beside her bed and takes
    One. As they talk, he can't help himself and eats one after another.
    By the time they are through talking, the bowl is empty. He says,
    "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but I seem to have eaten all of your peanuts."
    "That's okay," she says. "They would have just sat there. Without my
    Teeth, all I can do is suck the chocolate off and put them back."---

    Now you'll never be able to look at a peanut the same way again.

    Omg CC, I hate that home even more every time I hear it! I'm pretty sure I'd puke.

    Glad to hear everyone is on the mend. Glad you're doing so well! I'm sure the horses are your therapy right now. They're the best at giving you hugs and kisses when you need them the most.

    I hope everyone survived Monday. We went to electronic medical records today at the hospital that I work at. Wow what a nightmare. I do see the light at the end of the tunnel and know how great it will be once we all get it under control. Yoga after work, ate dinner, walked the dog a mile. Sugar got her apples tonight and her day off. Now sitting in my pjs enjoying football and horse forum

    Outnabout you can borrow one of my horses for future trail rides just come try one out anytime. There are plenty here that need to be ridden and more at the farm. It would do them good. Cynical the offer stands for you also.
