@Celeste ! What is that? Looks like a giant bungee cord. Do your horses jump off bridges?
Yesterday it was a fly sheet.

You could always get a donkey, @Eole !
I actually considered it, I love donkeys! I live be a lake surrounded by weekenders/tourists. The sound of a donkey at 5am might not be their idea of vacation charm. Seems a donkey's voice can travel 10km: is it true? Love the trees, it looks so exotic to me.

@phantomhorse13 So sorry about Mia Isn't she the one you took into a store one day and a lady at the cash register had a fit, insisting Mia was some kind of wild animal? Beautiful and special dog.

@SilverMaple Welcome! That a beautiful horse. I'm also intrigued by your saddle: looks very comfortable.

@Celeste Hope your sister gets her appetite back. Lots of heart patients go through depression after an event: are they looking into that possibility? And what happened to your funny talking bird? (Didn't he have the name of your uncle?) Your old horse is a contorsionist when you're not watching.

@Spanish Rider Presu really is a little girl's dream-horse. Kai is gorgeous. Is he a Main Coon? Love the garden, well done.

@RegalCharm At my work place, Losartan has been automatically substituded for another of the same family by pharmacists. It's been over 5-6 months I believe. ( I dislike the dentists, so I WON'T watch Sue's video)

@QueenofFrance08 The rubs: were they from Scoot Boots? What's your experience with them? I got their very first prototype and it rubbed, so the company sent me the improved version with endurance gaiter. Haven't used them on long rides yet. I stick to Gloves/Renegades

So, I didn't take the starving arabian mare home and the very next day, a lady contacted me, very interested in a "free-lease" option. She's getting out of horses, because her new partner doesn't ride. She's not quite ready to sell her mare just yet. (Maybe she could sell the partner? )

I did a trail ride with her yesterday (yeah!!! Back in the saddle!!) and it's a good match. Owner and mare are great. Meet Rianna: 15yo, 15h2 warmblood. Did trails and fox hunting all her life. She'll join my little herd from June to October.

Yesterday, took a long walk with dogs at dusk. Cat followed, which is annoying because she's so slow! We heard a moose call: quite impressive, like a lion's roar! And right now, as I'm typing, a fox just barked and walked in front of my house. I have a returning couple of Canada geese in my pasture, for the third year now. I call them Romeo and Juliette, since they mate for life. Hummingbird male arrived today and spring peepers are singing: must be Spring, finally! (I still have snow, but not for long)

@Eole that mare is striking! What a beauty, is she as sensible as she looks???



I can't wait to see pictures of the trails you ride, I remember they were enchanting.

Plus your darling fluffy pups and kitty! They are so cute

@Eole . It is nice to see you back around.

Thanks for commenting about my sister. Apparently they will be doing more tests tomorrow.

I do still have the bird. I had forgotten that I had named him "Drinking Uncle Jake". He insists his name is "Sweet Bird". I really need to do a recording of him now. He is 4 years old and has a rather large vocabulary. He is rather proficient with profanity.....

@AnitaAnne . Poor old Abby probably didn't try to go bungee jumping. I believe that the other horses had a tug of war with her sheet. She is so patient, she most likely just stood there and let them. She is a sweet old girl.

Carpe Diem!

Doesn't it look like bungee cord? Aren't those stripey bits are just like it? So, @Celeste, was it a zebra print or something? Maybe the other horses were offended, poor dear.

She does look sensible, doesn't she? A very pretty mare.

My son and I were just talking about him yesterday! Please do make a video. He's just amazing.

@Eole , I also have 2 black dogs, and your cat has a very sweet face. Yes, Kai is a Maine Coon. My previous cat, Luna, a siamese mix, was diagnosed with lymphoma in December. We got her through Christmas (my eldest was home from college; he's studying in Mass.), and put her down in January.

Years ago, we had met a German woman here in Spain who has been breeding Coonies for nearly 30 years. I got in touch with her and she offered us an older male kitten who she had kept for breeding, but now she needed a knee replacement so she had had him neutered. She was so happy that both my husband and I work from home, because he is what she called a "chewing gum" cat, meaning that once he gets stuck on you, there's no getting him off! He does not like being alone and follows us around all day. A real sweetie.

He loves "helping" in the kitchen.

@Eole Yes they were Scoot Boots. I've sold one pair now and am debating between keeping the other for a "spare tire" if we lose any shoes on the trail or selling them as well. My DH's horse has Renegades and they've never had an issue other than velcro getting sandy and coming unattached.

@Spanish Rider My cat Izzy loves helping cook too! The other day we were eating dinner and she was standing under the table (coffee table) and trying to reach up and grab my corn from the other side!

Anyone know how to build an ark? I'm so over this rain!

Belgians! We had two, and lost one last winter at age 13 and one winter at age 16. At some point we will get another Belgian, but just have to find the right dog... Give yours a snuggle. I miss ours so much

Forgot to mention that BO came in 2nd in the 5-star 145cm Global Champions Tour comp. on Sunday. His younger horse did not fare too well on Fri. or Sat., but his 16yo stuck it out on Sunday. Super-calm horse in the barn; doesn't even need to be tied. But, get him jumping and he's a spitfire.

Can't get dang link to work!
