Wow, lots of excitement around here!
Bloo, so sorry to hear about your injury. Hope the surgery gets you fixed up.
AA, that site you linked is going to be my downfall. I have been wanting a new license plate for the front of the car as my old one is dinged up really badly, but hadn't found any I really liked in stores. Now I am having trouble making up my mind which one to order!!
Leyna, sorry to hear the new guy is more than you expected, but glad you are committed to seeing it out. Sounds like you have a nice horse in the making, if given the time and the correct training. Look forward to hearing your progress.
We had a busy weekend here. Saturday, we went to pick up my new horse. She isn't even really halterbroke, forget having been on a trailer before. But luckily she has a good brain and I was able to get her on the trailer in about 30 minutes with no blow ups. She even backed out of the trailer a step at a time when we got home! She settled in like she'd been here her whole life. The current herd was a lot more agitated, even though the interloper was in her own paddock. Even sharing a fenceline was an adjustment. Silly ponies.
Yesterday we got George and Dream out for a ride. It was a horribly frustrating 10 miles, as we discovered they have been logging again and a good portion of our hill trails are now impassable.
We got off and moved stuff in a couple places, but eventually got to things which would need a chainsaw or a truck to move them. So frustrating!!
