I heard that too - a tablespoon of local honey a day keeps EVERY bug away. One of the top three reasons why I'm getting into beekeeping next spring.

I'll have to give the honey a try! Our feedstore sells local honey so that's perfect. My friend also said that eating honey and cinnamon every day helps with aches and pains. She has rheumatoid arthritis. If she went a couple days without her pain Meds she would be dying. After doing yhe honey and cinnamon, she said she could go days without Meds and feel fine.

FInally started raining between 5 when DH got up and 7:30 when I got up..... I was suppose to be up at 7! I set DH's alarm an hour early, and mine an hour late this am! I think I'd doing drugs in my sleep or something!

Good Monday morning y'all! It was a productive weekend event though our trip to Sam Houstone State and to tg tg got cancelled because we were supposed to be getting hay but got rained out along with our playday:( We got some fencework done (still needs to be finished), a nice dinner with dh's dad on saturday, church on sunday morning and riding after that. I finally got my mare to take her right lead canter and keep it for several strides. I was sooooo excited for us both. She is coming along so well.

Dh traded his mare (Sadie) for a gelding from one of the other boarders. He is a 6 or 7 yo registered gray, 15.3hh. Him and the 12yo girl just didn't click and he didn't like running barrels (always broke pattern on #2). She rode Sadie all over the place yesterday, loping circles and everything. They are going to send her to a trainer to have her patterned. I sure hope she works out for her. I'm a little sad to see her go but she's not really going anywhere....

Keep us posted
He's at one of the Harmony charter schools. So far, they've done vision & hearing tests.

Gave Cash another medicated shampoo bath; darn horse has rubbed new raw spots on his head and neck. The belly crusties are still bad, but his chest and legs look a little better since the last bath. I need to figure out how to get this gunk cleared up before cold weather sticks!!! The wash racks are outside, so even though there is heated water, he'd be in the wind during a bath.

I've been using local honey and local bee pollen for years to reduce my allergy response. Makes a big difference, IMO. Hmm, maybe I should start feeding it to Cash, lol.

Atlanta is wonderful and the people are very friendly.
If anyone gets to to there eat at Einstiens and order the sweet tea fried chicken or the mediteranian burger with tomato olive pesto feta cheese and made with ground lamb. Paying fifteen dollars for a hamburger is something I don't do everyday but IMO was worth it.
My presentation was a big hit and I was offered a couple of jobs. I politely told them I was not interested and they told me how much the were willing to pay. I swallowed real hard and declined. They got my attention though.
I could not however live in Washington DC, but Atlanta maybe......... if it were in Texas.
Kctop this new gelding must be something your husband really like that mare. I did too. I need to come over and see this new boy.
Sam is better still sore but I will start soaking his hoof in epsom salts and iodine as the vet suggested. He is putting weight on it so there has been some improvement.
Good to hear all is well.
Cynical with all the teachers nurses and me on this forum you have access to decades of experience. Use that knowledge and don't be afraid to ask questions. Shalom

Glad your trip went well and that sam is doing better. Yes he does like that gelding although he's a little intimidated due to his size. The girl is loving Sadie and has so much confidence riding her. Her mom said the difference was night and day:)

Good morning. Nice raining coming down!

Horses were standing out in it this morning, instead of under the loafing shed. Kit was using Lil as a wind break. It was pretty funny looking.

We have a bunch of rain in the forecast here. I still have not done a darn thing with my garden. Too many other things keep distracting me, I guess....if anything, I should at least try to plant some carrots since I'm not doing anything else with the dirt this winter - then I can just pull them out and toss them to the horses from time to time. Besides - there are HUGE gray/white mosquitoes out there that are worse than vampires on Bourbon Street in New Orleans on Halloween night.

We are supposed to get close to three inches this afternoon. All of this wetness and mud has brought up fire ants straight from the depths of hell (they bite like it anyway). We've been invaded by bugs which I assume are running from the ants. Brown recluse spiders in my house in the middle of the floor on a regular basis this week. I'm sure they are coming in from the outside b/c I can't believe that many would be IN my house.

I need to trim two more sets of feet but right now all of the horses are sporting this new platform mud sneaker look. At least rolling in it gives them relief from the darn flies.
