It's not a when, it's an if. And of course she'd be sad. I'd be sad too as I would love to spend time with her (we have stuff in common out the wazoo!) and I love my current barn and have a lot of friends there.

But I'm just thinking about the future. If I have to relocate in order to get things to work, then I gotta relocate. But I have a feeling I may be sticking close to DC. It all depends..

6/18/12 A real update

I spent the rest of the day researching. The past 4 hours alone have been heavy duty reading of hoof articles and learning SO much that my brain is toast. But things are beginning to make MUCH more sense and things are much clearer.

Plus I found a new thrush treatment that we can try on Sky if my lessee is up for it since his NoThrush has stopped working, Thrush buster is on short supply, and it's a lot cheaper than $26 of ToMorroW Dry Mastis which was going to be the last thing we tried (my "whatever budget" money is so tight atm)

But I talked with my friends, who were overly eager this evening.. six at once while trying to get things done was interesting. Then it went down to four and they were all at different energy levels so it was funny to bounce between message windows!

Made my brother lunch (we eat a late lunch.. like around 3pm) and my brother was STILL sleeping.. so that was a shame and I'm kind of mad about it (won't go into that.. that last rant is going to last ya'll a while!)

Hope everyone is well!!

We used ThrushBuster on the horses at camp who showed up (of course) with thrush. It was gone within three days. Pretty great stuff!

Hoof anatomy is really interesting and quite confusing I think. A great forum you can post pictures/questions on as an owner and get professionals opinions is The Farrier Forum. I haven't lurked in a while as the mobile app version has been down, but there are some amazing folks there and you can learn a lot!

My brother used to stay up until 4, 5, 6am, eating everything in the house and piling soda cans on his desk, then sleep until 4 and expect someone to have made him dinner. Then he got married/joined the USMC... ;) he's a gentleman now. Now let's hope I can break the stupid habit. Been up for 30 min already and it's 10a!

Much better than the previous night's wake up time. Well done!! :)

Urgh it must be a guy thing. My cousin does it (he got married too lol) your brother does it.. my brother continues to do it. He JUST woke up (it's 2am here) and then went and got another stupid energy drink to drink.. urgh. Don't get me started on his eating habits lol.

I honestly cannot picture him getting married at this stage. But who knows, this may sound rude but miracles have been known to happen!

Yes was having great results with thrush buster (minus the initial incident when Sky stepped on the bottle and half of the contents went splashing everywhere turning everything it could reach a shade of indigo :P I laughed to hard though.. like something you'd see on Tom and Jerry or a Comedy movie. Not in person xD

May reorder some more.. it's good to have on hand.

HAHA, oh boy. At camp we got some on our paint gelding's white markings, so we told the campers he had been painting a masterpiece in his stall. Stuff can stain stainless steel!

It's gotta be a guy thing! Ugh, energy drinks. Chemicals in convenient can form! Hooray! ... :/

We thought my brother would never get married, then out of the blue he tells us he is marrying his best friend; we didn't even know they had been dating (again). Anything can happen, I suppose!

Hope you get some sleep tonight! ;)

Just got done watching Fantastic 4 with my father.. laughing and laughing. Also watched Slumdog Millionaire. Loved the ending, but hated the beginning.

I cooked for my family :) Broiled Pork chops, seasoned with my special concoction, and then I threw some leftover boiled potatoes in a skillet, added carrots, chilies, a bell pepper, and seasoned it with some salt and pepper. My family LOVED it and it's the first meal I've ever cooked without any help or instruction. I pulled it out my sleeve.

I was having a good day but now I feel not so good. Someone I used to really like tried to toy with me again. I just can't take that kind of conversation when he's already hurt me twice before. It sucks, I thought I was over it but apparently not.

I'm completely numb right now.. urgh anyway pushing forward with my day.

Sky's headstall and reins arrived so that's very exciting! Hopefully will be on his handsome face soon! We'll be going ahead and trying this new thrush killer concoction on Sky to see if it works better than the NoThrush or Thrushbuster.

Keep on praying for my lessee. Her loved one is doing much much better but not out of the woods yet.

Got word that people are waiting for me to begin work and are excited about it.. which makes me smile. I can't wait to work with them either and learn some new tools and use old ones :)

Dang it I wish I didn't feel like this now. I'm going to go work on my paper to see if I can distract myself from this.

Everyone have a wonderful day

Glad to see you had some quality time with your family! That is awesome! :)

As for the bummer stuff, try to keep your chin up. You have more important things on your plate than dudes who just want to cause you torment. Not to sound like your parent or something; just remember that when we feel down, our intrusive thoughts are right at the door banging away, reminding you of all of the things wrong (or seemingly wrong!) in our lives. In Greek they are called logismoi; the thoughts running through your head when you are lying awake at night. It is good to not even enter into conversation with them, and even better if we can notice them coming and brush them off before they have a chance to torment us much. In the faith I practice, we denote these thoughts to demons trying to pry us away from God. Now, you don't have to accept that; it would be helpful though to realize how detrimental these thoughts can be to our emotional/mental/spiritual wellbeing.

Enough of that heavy stuff - where are the pics of this awesome new headstall?!

Teehehe we need to get it tailored a bit. The throatlatch is HUGE and the cheek piece is a few cms too long, so we're working on that atm..

But I'll give you a sneak peek in a bit :) Just shhh don't let the other forum people know yet

Right now I am cooking and omg.. HUGE adrenaline rush. I had it yesterday but today is more so because I am trying to get the timing right.. that it is done when my parents come home... making it all up as I go along (same as yesterday)


Okay the chicken wings are done (marinated them in this crazy mix of stuff, including zest of both orange and lime, juiced the orange and the lime, some tandoori paste, onion powder, mustard, lemon and vanilla extract, and some italian seasoning. I know it sounds wth but it smells incredible.

Then I boiled potatoes, carrots, and turnips.. then drained them and they are now roasting on a tray with garlic and onion pieces for an hour.

Phew.......!!!! Now I need to wait till 8 mins are left to steam some mixed veggies and add in some leftover peas.

Wish me luck...

Here's a picture.. don't laugh..

Yum!! That sounds so delicious. 1:21am here so I had corn chips and salsa for a snack. Another month until I can have meeeaat... precious flesh meat O_O Yum!

Sky! Hahaha, he looks.. thrilled. I LOVE the headstall! Is the throatlatch on upside down? Either way, I love it! The reins match I assume; are they split reins? I have a pair of dark oil split reins made by Roy Ionson of Ontario, Canada (pretty well known there, part of OQHA hall of fame) that are AWESOME! Nothing like handmade, one of a kind tack. I have a super nice split ear headstall but it is no where near the quality/feel of the reins I have.


Congrats on getting it! Who made it, if I may ask?

A page on FB called Double K Equine Art.

And yes I'm pretty sure they put it on backwards, lmao.. will try to fix that when we go and get it tailored to fit.. cause right now it's a bit odd haha..

It was delicious! My family was so hungry and they really enjoyed it. And today my timing was perfect! Literally everything was done as they walked through the door.. table was set and food was on the table.


No reins yet, they're the white cotton ones that we're planning on dying. We'll have to see about that though.
