@Werecat , sorry that happened to your pooch but don't be so hard on yourself. Just like kids sometimes our animals have to learn for themselves about things they shouldn't do. Ajia's looking like she's resting comfortably in that picture you posted.

@Finalcanter there are times you muddle on through and times you have to stop and take of what ails you. Flu can easily turn into pneumonia so this is a time to stop and get yourself healthy before getting on with your life. Feel better soon!

@PoptartShop , LOL at getting pooped on. In time it'll happen often enough that you will be able to sense them lifting their tail when you have ahold of a back foot. Sometimes it's a false alarm when only a toot comes out but better safe then sorry so I always put the foot down and run to a safe zone.

Nobody was the worse for wear today. I thought maybe Frecks and Gamble would be a little stiff from moving faster yesterday that they are used to having to move but they were both fine. Cloud is a little tender footed from the farrier trimming her short enough to get the infected white line cleared out but only when she's on a harder surface like the barn floor.

Meeting my friend for lunch tomorrow and we're going to a Mexican place. I can already taste that chimi...YUM!

Since it's past midnight I can wish you all a good Friday and hope it goes fast for all of you still in the working world. Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend!

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

My dog (the one in the picture with my fiance) was REALLY mad at me for coming home without him

He's back in the States and his mother is still full psycho, which... fine, whatever, be a raging bag of psycho if you want, we don't care. But it has made things a little bit scary for him.

I'm doing my best to be the supportive fiancee he needs me to be. It's hard - I miss social cues a lot, being autistic - but he knows the challenges I face and he understands and appreciates that I'm trying. He keeps reassuring me that I'm doing an amazing job. I don't feel like I am (I fear my own inadequacy enormously) but I do take a lot of comfort in his reassurances and words of affirmation.

I miss him horribly. It's so wrong that I can't pull him into my arms and run my nails over his scalp the way he likes. I just want to help and I don't know what to do. But I must be doing something right for him to keep telling me not to change a thing?

@RegalCharm omg that video! It cracks me up every time.

@JCnGrace LOL seriously! Usually she just farts! Awww, that sounds yummy! I am dying for some tacos. Get some good stuff!!! Have a great time!! And yay for the horses not being stiff!

Ugh, posts aren't showing up again. So I can't see who responded to me, grrr! Well I can in my notifications, but that's it - they don't show up here. Sigh!
I know they're working on the bugs though.

Anyway, I confess I'm happy it's finally Friday. Tomorrow I'm moving Promise to the new private barn, so I'm excited. I'll take pictures too. Supposed to be a super nice, sunny weekend so that's good. Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Ride more, worry less.

I confess that my life has been way too chaotic with horses for me to even have time to catch up on all this goodness. There is so much drama (mostly happy though!) over the last few months that I am finally trying to catch up on all the happy horse stories.

So my major confession. My January 14th alcohol-induced kill pen purchase made me a great horsey grandma. Turns out the "filly" was very very pregnant. We had no clue since she was so skinny. She arrived, was quarantined, still skinny. Feeding her like mad, wormed her, fecal was negative, still skinny. One morning my barn owner texts me and bam, there's a baby in there. So I am no longer allowed to use my phone if I drink since I could be buying a horse.

So I confess - we now have 5. Meet Kalamity Kate (mom) and Sassyfrass Sarah

the mare looks like she has optimized the extra food and health checks.
The foal is pretty. You going to call her Sassy or Sarah for her barn name?

Yay for finally being able to see what you all wrote! I guess you can probably tell my post didn't show up for me either since one of my sentences to @Finalcanter left out the word "care".

@RegalCharm , that's pretty hilarious!

@blue eyed pony , it's best they love you just as you are so it's good that he does. Sounds like he definitely needs to distance himself from his mother. Are you two already planning his next visit?

@PoptartShop , safe travels to you and Promise. I hope she settles right in at her new home.

@twixy79 , YOUR FAMILY GREW! Congrats on the new horses although the way you obtained them is pretty funny. SURPRISE! LOL Both are pretty dang cute but look at that baby! Try not to spoil her too bad, it's way too easy to do. Oh wait...5? I missed #3 somewhere along the way. Who what when where and picture? LOL Did I miss an update on your thread?

We had a good lunch today. Got lots of gabbing done and instructions since I'm the executor of her estate and losing her sister has made her want to get her ducks in a row. I'll confess that I don't really like to talk about stuff like that but know it's a necessary evil. I'd rather her leave me a letter with a list of instructions that I'll deal with when the time comes, until then I don't want to think/talk about it. I think that's the procrastinator in me or maybe I'm part ostrich and would rather bury my head in the sand.

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

@Tazzie love the pics, congratulations. Kaleb and Syd are growing fast, they have lost that baby look!

@PoptartShop sorry to hear abt your work, your boss sounds bit of an a$$. Takes the joy out of the day. I think most people had/have trouble changing over to windows 10. I regretted it for weeks!!

@blue eyed pony Congratulations! Blessings to you both

@Finalcanter I had to read twice to catch up on (what I understand to be) your thoughts! But I get that you are upset, that you have tried to help sort out issues at the barn. In any situation where you try to help someone else you are only as effective as they let you to be. Also, as often as not you will get no thanks. Sometimes, ‘shutting down’ or walking away from the situation is the best thing to do FOR YOU. It is ok to distance yourself, regain your calm. If you feel you need to revisit the problem is up to you, have an approach in mind but try not to get too attached to a specific outcome. Know what you need for You so you are not swayed by strong personalities thinking only of themselves. You don’t owe anyone. Hope it all improves soon.

@phantomhorse13 so sorry to hear about Mia

@Werecat sorry to hear about Ajia, unfortunately sometimes little animals don’t get the danger till they have been hurt. She will be more wary in future. We had that sometimes milking cows when a cat would come into the shed and hang around the cows legs until they got hurt or nudged/serious shock and they would stay out when the cows were in or be much more alert! Also I had a farm dog who used to come in too close to the motorbike and tractor, until one day I was in a hurry and he crossed in front of me and I hit him. I got a broken ankle and he wouldn’t come near the bike after that. But he also showed more respect for the tractor so that was a relief!

@JCnGrace there are some things none of us want to think about. Too many thinks I left till very late. But I know now it is better to think about and discuss them before needed, it can take so much stress out of the situation and prevent arguments.

A photo of Sonny sent to me by my sister. Missing him heaps

When the world says "give up". Hope whispers "try it one more time"

@JCnGrace - we want to try to make his next flight one way. If nothing else his next visit should be a nice long one (he's going for a 12 month working visa) and will qualify us for a partner visa on account of us then having lived together for a good period of time, making us de facto spouses? Or something? Idk I didn't really understand the website.

He's decided he's giving his mom a deadline and if her treatment of him and attitude regarding me do not improve immensely by then, that's it, he's done with her.

This crazy lady has called me all manner of unpleasant things I would get banned from HF for repeating. I have called her a crazy lady, because she is. The latest is that she's going OFF about me "calling her names" and "telling him lies", and she's accused HIM of abuse (lol no). Classic narcissistic tantrum kind of stuff. She's not getting what SHE wants so she's going to project and gaslight and guilt trip and manipulate and make everything about HER until someone gives in. Well, sucks to be her, because neither of us is going to.

@ShirtHotTeez , I know it's best to do it, I just don't like it.

Very glad to see you pop in, I've been wondering about you. Hope everything is working out and you're closer to being settled.

@blue eyed pony , you shouldn't have to deal with her at all. However it is she contacts you, can you block her?

Great niece got married this evening. Hubs and I danced at the reception and I can't even begin to guess how long it's been since we've done that. His new hip is working out pretty well. LOL
