I've considered adopting a mustang - I've seen the ones that they bring up to Belton. Most of them are pretty laid back after having been toted around to different adoption sites that time of year. They're good looking horses. I need lots of time (kids need to be more grown) before I can tackle that project. If I was younger, I'd be more inclined to adopt something mature. But I'm not and the ground hits harder these days so I would probably look for something freshly weaned up to a long yearling and take my time. No mustang makeover challenge for me tho... I've always wanted to adopt a PMU foal, too. A nice big TB/Belgian cross. I just don't know how to find those.

Thanks for the well wishes for my knee. As much as it hurt like holy hell yesterday, today I'm walking on it pretty good. I feel a little pressure using the stairs, but I think I'll be running again on Thursday. I feel like I've been deprived my bragging rights b/c I don't have anything but two tiny red spots, and two little bruises. I thought my whole leg broke off and fell on the ground. But today you'd never even know anything happened. I can't believe the pain and then nothing to show for it.

And then I'm one of those people who get random huge bruises on the underside of my arm or on my upper thigh as big as a saucer and don't know what the heck I did to cause it. One day it's just there. LOL!

Huh. I have a random bruises of unknown origin on the inside of both arms, and a saucer sized bruise on my left thigh, LOL!

I went as far as submitting my application and registering to bid at this April's Mustang Million Auction in Ft Worth. I ultimately came to my senses and decided I didn't have the time necessary to devote to gentling a mustang. At least not if I wanted to see my son once in awhile.

Taz, what'd you do to your leg?
I needed a knee replacement back about 10 years ago. They said I was too young. So my doctor did an ostiotomy which is suppose to take pressure off the part of the knee that is bad. He over did the ostiotomy by 3 inches, so my leg was crooked, you can look at it like my leg was a kickstand. I started getting lots of pain in my back, more pain in my knee and pain in my ankle from being crooked. So I had to have a doctor surgically break it and straighten in over the course of 6 weeks. They put a fixator on it to do this. Now im just waiting on it to heal now. But it is finally straight. Still have bad knees but will work on that in the future. It's been Pain.

Hope you have a SUPER FANTASTIC AWESOME COOL and SAFE trip and take pics!

It is supposed to rain on us down here this weekend - that's ok with me. But I could sure do without the mosquitoes that this last rain hatched out.

Be sure to have someone take lots of pics of you and Lil! Don't be like me and get stuck with the camera and not end up with any pics of yourself to share.
