    Got another one. Again younger son. 8yrs old. Wants to enter horse show in 8 & under division. So the work begins on getting the horse used to short legs and paying attention to a small rider. I schooled him for weeks and all was going well. He entered his class of western pleasure and won it. As we were driving home he started having nose problems, it was getting a little snooty about how he'd beaten everyone. "I'll bet you didn't do as good when you were my age." To which I replied, "well, no, I didn't have me for a teacher back then". I so wished he hadn't won that class as he knew it all after that.

    Weanling
    Yesterday morning, I left jack on his changing table for Two seconds to dampen a cloth..two..seconds... I come back to him peeing on my wall!! It made me laugh.. And they say breast fed babies have more "explosive" ( actual words used in my birthing class) poops... that is an understatement! For such a small cute baby, I am amazed at the farts he can produce! You can almost hear them across the house:)

    My lil boy had a habit of wee'ing everytime we took the nappy off as well! We get a home visit from a nurse when the baby is about 5 days old. We ended up with a young nurse who I really didnt take to who obviously cared greatly about her image as she came in dressed to the nines. Anyway, she goes to take his nappy off and I informed her about his habit - quick nappy change or you WILL get wee'd on. She rolled her eyes at me, and proceeded to lean over him yattering away. I again reminded off of the risk she was taking, que another eye roll. I was DELIGHTED to see her lean over him again and him proceed to do the BIGGEST wee ever... I couldnt believe how much came out of that little body! She was disgusted, and got into quite the huff. I was slightly delighted, but quite annoyed that now he had wee all over him as well. Shoulda listened to the Mommy eh? :)

    Little Man: YES!! I love 'wimming classes!
    Me: You're such a little fish
    Little Man: I AM NOT A LITTLE FISH, I'M A BIG FISH!!! (he was very angry I called him little I guess)

    Trained
    One from a new friend, who had been babysitting her granddaughter.

    Little girl is horse mad, and has been allowed to play with the foals under supervision, and has even been out to catch 'her' horse on her own, 30 year old Morgan retired sweetie. One day the GD comes out, shortly after weaning time, and gets told by grandma to stay out of the colt pen, because they are still a bit off.

    Little girl is good and follows grandma around doing chores, but then goes missing, and Grandma is horrified to see her ducking under the rail into the colt pen, and then even more horrified when a colt kicks and catches the little one.

    She runs over and pulls her out, checks around the tears and running nose that she isn't hurt, then asks her if she has learned anything. Through the sobbing and soggy mess she hears

    " Gramma I learned to stay out if the f***ing colt pen"

    My friend swears she didn't say it first, but they made a pact that maybe they wouldn't tell mummy any of it.

    I shared this story on another thread, but it'll be a good one here -
    While giving a wildlife program at the nature center I worked for, I came on the subject of reptiles and was telling the elementary students (2nd grade) that "The Eastern Garter is a very calm snake without fangs or venom, and we must never try to harm them as they are an important part of nature, etc..." As I was speaking, a kid's arm shot up and he was just dying to tell me something, so I called on him. "My dad hates all snakes and whenever he sees one he goes right to the garage to get the shovel and chops their head off!" Not only was this one of those "out of the mouths of babes" moments that requires quick thinking, (believe me, I've heard some funny tattling) but saw that "Dad" was a chaperone sitting very red-cheeked in the back with the other parents/teachers who were snickering - he looked like he wanted nothing more than to just slither under a chair and hide at that point :)

    That is something that could happen here. My sister got nailed in the gut once by a weaner, she slapped him on the butt - don't know what she expected. Guess when you are that age you don't consider the consequences of your actions.

    My kiddo has no fear, sometimes it's good other times not so much. I caught her ON my coming 2 yr old in the pasture when he was a still intact yearling. Thank the lord he's such a quiet, level headed youngster. He was just happily eating while she sat there. I asked how she got up there, I shouldn't have asked. She says "Well, I leaded him by his mane to that gate and climbed on." Not even a halter on him and he stood for that garbage! I think he's going to be an easy one to start

    I'd be lying if I said I didn't do the same as a kid. Gpa would have a dozen or more babies at a time, my sister and I would wait til they had their heads in the hay feeder and jump on. We took some wild rides and just as many that didn't move an inch.

    I think Doctors should totally switch to using this pain scale!

    Little Man is at my dad's today because he "wasn't feeling good". (the way he was acting I knew he was faking, but I still couldn't take him to daycare.) My dad sent me this conversation.

    Dad: Where does it hurt?
    Little Man: at home.
