    Happy belated birthday, Out & Mamma!

    Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Put two light rides on Cash before the rain ruined my carefully planned starting schedule based around a solid several days of availability. Rain in the forecast on the next day I can get to the barn, too. Never started one on a spotty schedule like this, and it's stressing me a bit.

    Happy Monday morning y'all!

    I have to tell y'all, my legs are very sore. I've ridden my mare the last 4 days and it's the only reason I can think of??? We've been working on some new things to help with her head set as she likes to trot and lope with it jacked up in the air. She doesn't stick her nose out so tie downs don't help, therefore we are trying a martingale again and it's starting to work:)
    We went and checked out an arena that has team pennings and sortings yesterday and I can't wait to try it!! Probably not this weekend but maybe next!!

    Hope everyone had a great Monday. So many changes at work in my world but change is good or so they tell me. So glad I have my sugar to come home and ride after a long hard work day. Hubby pointed out time changed this weekend. Ugg hate that dark way to early. Belated b days to out&momma. I have one in December but since it is my 40th I am going to ignore it. Could use some of that rain here in Lubbock

I have 3 old ones in my house that are just OLD or have a broken tree and I "decorate" with them. ;) Hubby just shakes his head.
    Nothing wrong with decorating with them have two in. Y house. Spurs are another we seem to decorate with. My non horse hubby was collecting them long before he met me. Our house is very western

    Had an amazing birthday this weekend. My family drove up from Georgetown with my aunt and uncle from Germany in tow. I never dreamed I would be able to share my little place in Trenton TX with them one day. They absolutely loved everything. The horses, our hay equipment, our home made smoker (hubby smoked brisket), the chickens, our shop filled with dead vehicles, everything. They were just fascinated since this is something they just never experience. Then my mom hands me my birthday gift yesterday. It came in a 32in Sony flatscreen TV box and as soon as she hands it to me, she appologizes and says, please don't be disappointed. It's not a TV. I open it and pull out a beautiful leather headstall, reins, a saddle pad, polowraps, a really nice hay bag, new halter and leadline, and a giant bottle of Leather New. I said "are you kidding me???? This is so much better than a Sony TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" She cracked up. So yes, even a 40 year old can get excited over a very thoughtful birthday gift. I mean, how many of us watch TV when we're out on our horses anyway?!!! ;) Great weekend. :)

    I have spurs on my wall too! And an old roping rope. And tons of bits (several that survived the fire but just weren't very smooth for the horses anymore). And horse shoes. We are also very country/Americana/western.

    Glad you got some great gifts my german friend. I understand how your aunt and uncle love your place. My Aunts and Uncles from Israel or Europe love to visit the Farm. They are like Japanese tourist portrayed on TV they take thousnads of pictures of everything if it moves or not. LOL
    My 90 YO Uncle even bought a heifer from us and loves to pet her when he and his wife visit. He now has about 15 cattle at our place and one horse. They all do nothing but eat and stand around for him to pet and feed them treats.
    When he goes back to Israel he brags about his cowboy nephew. One that doesnt wear a hat but uses the title Dr professionally. I want him to meet kctops husband then he can see what a real cowboy should look like. Shalom

    Oh my DBA that's exactly how my aunt and uncle were!!!! They took pictures of absolutely everything. My husband walked out there with the raw brisket and they took pictures of it as he placed it into the smoker. It was hillarious. That's why he insisted on cooking BBQ this weekend. It is so Texas and so NOT German. And the fact he cooked this with a smoker he welded together out of an old propane tank fascinated them. And our chickens cracked them up. They follow you everywhere and they couldn't step out without a herd of chickens all around, which they loved. They took pics of my hay stack and the hay equipment. I loved it. :) Such different worlds. Little did they know what their little niece would turn into one day when we still lived there in the 70's and early 80's. This was only their 2nd time to visit the states and their first time at my place. I wish now they would move across the big pond as well.
