Definitely not going to be bored this weekend, it's going to be busy. Got to go get some briskets tonight to cook for tomorrow's cookout at the barn for Ashley's birthday. Then got another cookout on Sunday for another birthday.....
I'm hoping to get some good sleep this weekend but doesn't look like that's going to happen!
Cynical I not only offer people the chance to experience foal watch with my mares I will allow people to show one of these arabians of mine. LOL
I might indeed need a rider or two with the number I have in training . Think about it. Including Cassuis and the two mares now being trained I am going to be broke and tired. Anyone have any stalls to clean? I work very cheap.
I am getting ready for Yom Kippur so I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend. All my Texas Friends are in my thoughts and prayers as I begin to fast after sundown. No internet either so I will reconnect with you after sundown tomorrow.
EMStnnwalker I aint going no where so yes you will most likely know me if you stick around.
Kctop tell that young lady I said happy birthday and what time is the brisket going to be ready. That would be kind of rude to invite myself but then could not eat. LOL kctop your family will be mentioned tomorrow in my prayers.
Texasgal I am saying a special prayer for you and your family. Thanks for your kind words this past year.
I might be able to find the time to post one more time but if not Mazel Tov Yom Kippur. Shalom Donald
I'm in Hays county as well. No horse, had a pony in my teens for a very short time. Brother in law rides/jumps a horse of a friend. He has some sort of muscle issues, ms? That requires special feeding and regular exercise to keep him from stiffening up. She let me take lots of pictures of him. Plenty of horses about and a mini farm a few miles away.
Working on a 3D horse at the moment. I'll be using the pictures of her horse for reference of the warmblood version.
Hoping to make enough off my 3D efforts to visit my fiance` in the UK and someday get a horse.
Happy Friday all! I don't know about anyone else, but my Friday was freaking AWESOME! Rafe did amazing working cattle, we didn't have any trouble crossing "sh*t" creek, and the weather was very pleasant; it stayed cool and even sprinkled on us for much of the morning.
Just sharing a few of the hundred or so pictures I took. I likely won't upload them all and get them sorted until after tomorrow when it's all completely done.
Oh, and the reason we call it Sh*t creek is because the banks are about 30 feet deep and the easiest place is at about a 45* angle. There are trees and deadfall everywhere (as you can see) and there is a grand total of one safe place to cross. You try to cross anywhere else and you will get completely bogged down.
Approaching S*** creek
Watching the cattle as they crossed to make sure that they didn't get "lost" (which has happened before)
Then, it was my turn to cross S*** creek
And, then we finally got them all down to the corrals (I was sitting in the road waiting to turn them in the gate).
No, your not being rude, and I am teasing about braiding my leg hair. I don't shave daily, but at least every weekend! Unlike you, (I'm sure) I don't care if I have hairy legs in public! Lol But I don't let them get too long. Rarely go over a week, and as I get older, I have less leg hair! Now you know, don't ever ask again! Lol
LOL! Sitting with a group of people indoors and you rub your legs together accidentally - people swear they hear crickets in the room ......
