@Rainaisabelle , hate hearing that Roy is still lame even though the swelling is gone. I hope he's better soon. Theo is so cute with his ball. None of mine would ever play with one but a calf I bottle raised loved it so it became his.

@Zexious , normally I sleep from 4:00 am to 10:00 am. Sometimes I'll take a 30 minute or less nap after supper. Not intentionally, I'll just doze off in the recliner. The only time I can take a long nap like I mentioned above is when I don't get 6 hours of sleep. The least little thing can throw me off though, I'm not a good sleeper. If I ever had to go back to work I'd be looking for a second shift job for sure. LOL


Good on you for getting some cleaning accomplished! I need to but I just did it a couple of days ago and since it isn't my favorite chore don't want to again so soon. I often wonder how my mom cleaned once a week and it stayed that way with 7 people living in the house. My house only has 2 people + 1 dog.

@phantomhorse13 , I'll let you know how she does. It will be a while because the minis only get done every other farrier visit. Oddly enough even then they rarely have much growth to take off. I wish my full sizers had feet like they do. LOL, no they don't mind not being ridden at all. At first I told myself it would take as long as it takes but at this point I feel like I'm using JC as an excuse. As much as I'd like to still have that passion for riding maybe it's just gone for good and I'll be content with my little rides around the pasture on occasion. I guess I shouldn't worry about it since I still get joy from taking care of them.


Isn't it funny how much longer it seems to put that stuff up than it does to get it out? I gave up decorating for Christmas when the grandson got too busy with sports and life to spend his break here. Well, for a couple of years I still decorated the spruce tree out in the front yard instead which we got for our first Christmas on this property but it got too big and then a couple of years ago it died. I've been wanting to replace it but hubby likes not having to mow around it.


I bet your washer would pop back out easily if you wanted to mess with it. Borrowing one of those suction cup thingies from a body shop would do the trick. Heck you might even try a toilet plunger.


Is Sugar Loaf right on the farm's property? Is it the name of the trail or a mountain or just what your family calls it? Kestrel looks like she enjoyed the outing.

@Captain Evil , what a fantastic business trip to take in the winter! The water is gorgeous around those parts or a least it was close to 40 years ago. You do know we all worry about our horses when we go away even if they aren't prone to casting. I'm glad you found a way to ease your mind a little though. Hopefully Boojum will watch where he's laying down to roll while you're gone.


Update on TV, they couldn't fix it so we got a new one. No charge of course except for paying for a new extended warranty. I don't think any changes are going to made to our satellite package either. I could live with the next package down but I don't think hubby could. I'd still get the channel that I watch bull riding on but would lose Nat Geo Wild. I'd miss the vet shows I watch on that channel but it wouldn't devastate me. Now if I had to do without bull riding that would be a whole different story. LOL Hubby watches a lot more TV than I do and even has one out in the garage. I think he likes the background noise where I like a little peace and quiet every now and then.

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

@phantomhorse13 no actually Roy is usually very stoic, he does have that nasty gash though. I haven’t seen him since Friday so I’ll probably go up this morning or Thursday morning

I've read all the posts, but I am so behind that I lack the time to reply properly. So much going on!! Lame horses, small saddles, crazy oyster ladies, nice upcoming trips, clothes missing, new Tv, exercising, good rides... Whew!! Lol!

Two days, two rides. I am getting spoiled this Winter (knock on wood, I sense that when the rain comes it's gonna be ugly...). Temperatures are very cold at night - I got 1,5 degrees celsius at 9.45 am - but lovely during the day, almost like Spring. Tuya was feeling the oats once again, and as I was riding alone and she started to drop shoulder to the center of the arena, off to the property I went. I swear she stumbled in every single hose of the watering system, that's how focused she was, lol! At least she went where I told her to.
And I am starting to think that the driveway is cursed! We were arriving back, and suddenly Tuya starts to trot all silly and trying to take-off. I had to do some circles and even a one rein stop. Making her stand facing the trail I saw the reason for all the excitement: BO's son had gone out on his stallion, they were returning, and the horse was nervous passing a motorbike. Horses really do sense so much more than us

Sunday I stayed at the arena because I wanted to do some hoof rasping (as I don't do much every time) and I had to go lunch with my parents. When I was about to put my foot on the stirrup, I started hearing a very powerfull four wheeler speeding up like crazy. It was the guy that rents the upper lands for farming, he was national champion of cross country racing or something like that, and was enjoying himself on his beast while checking the water system. I decided to wait a little bit just in case, but Tuya was so good and calm with it that I rode anyhow. And she didn't care at all I was the fearful "what if" rider once again, and thankfully for no reason. Then I rasped my hand again and it hurts, lol!

Gotta go back to work now, I hope you have a great Monday

@TuyaGirl , you're making hay while the sun is shining! Another saying which means you're taking advantage of your good weather. Ouch on rasping your hand, you are going to have to start wearing some leather gloves girl!


I recently sent a pm to Change since we hadn't heard from her in some time and she's doing fine just very, very busy with work. She said to tell you all hello and that she misses you.

R.I.P. JC 5/19/85 - 12/9/14. You made my life better.

@JCnGrace I was, I was like...I waited 3wks...3wks for THIS?! Luckily the seller was nice and let me send it back, and get refunded. I can't wait for my other 2 to come though! Aw that's good the farrier visit went well. They definitely have their days though. Yeah, maybe that would work for next time. Mares can be stubborn like that sometimes LOL. Promise can be like that too. If there's too many people around she gets a bit jittery. Yay for the new tv! I've been wondering how Change has been, glad to hear she is doing well and keeping busy! <3 We miss her too!!

@phantomhorse13 he said he had his horse friends measure it for him and they were sure it was 17.5". Except it's NOT! So, long story short it's going back today! LOL. I hope so too, I can't wait for them to arrive! I love all the colors on the horses! So glad Phin was good and the ponying went well!! The rain sucks, but at least you got some stuff done around the house. Love the blue walls! Ugh, you're ahead of the game...I still need to take down my tree & decorations. Was supposed to do it this weekend, but was too lazy. You can never have too many horse blankets! Omg, the dogs are so cute! Kestrel is getting so big. Such a pretty girl.

@Captain Evil OMG she does remind me of Promise! Same expressions and everything. She is beautiful! What a pretty face! <3 So cute!! And you are such busy bees, be careful out there and update us when you can!

@TuyaGirl yay for more riding time!! So glad to hear. And that's great she was calm despite all that noise. What a good girl. I don't blame you for taking advantage of that nice weather. I miss spring weather. And they really are so much more aware than we are. They sense everything!!

@Zexious I hope you had a good workout at the gym!

@Rainaisabelle sorry to hear he is lame. Ugh. Glad the swelling went away, but poor guy! I hope the vet goes well tomorrow.
Awww, it looks like Theo loves his new toy. So cute!!!

I confess, I had a nice weekend. Saturday it did rain all day, but I rode in the indoor.
Yesterday it was super nice out, like 50F! Got a bit windy after a little, but we rode outside and it was fine.

Let her graze afterwards & hungout. :)

I've been watching this new show on Netflix called You. It's SO GOOD!!!!!!!! I only have like 2 episodes left to watch, but I already want the next season! It's crazy but good!

I'm actually ENJOYING riding in my Barefoot treeless until my new saddles come to try. It's so comfortable, and it's actually helping me with my position. Promise likes it too, she seems much happier.

I confess, I need my head examined! There is a blue roan mustang in the Kaufman kill pen, and I am seriously considering going to get him.

FYI, it is spelled W-H-O-A.

Blue Roan is my favorite color! Right along with Grulla, Bay, Buckskin, Bad Ass Brown, Chestnut, Gray, Black, Palomino...

But seriously, what's the worst that can happen? Unless it will bring death, divorce or dismemberment, I say, go for it!
