@Tazzie - Great pics!! Too cute on the Syd and Izzie video.... Congrats on the show and good luck on the next one!

@PoptartShop - I know on being able to do something with the horses after work, I got Captain out gave him a good brushing, I think I got another horse out of that brushing but it just wanted to lay there. Then worked him on flexing and what not on the ground.

@blue eyed pony - I'm saving money so I can get an 11... is yours the Pro? I am hoping the regular one takes as good of pics.

@JCnGrace - hmmmm on the cat... that would be a hard one to take. I would might have to fix that cat someway..

Not much to confess just that I'm really liking the daylight later but don't like getting up in the dark! I know it won't be too much longer so I will suck it up.

@JCnGrace to bad you can't run a hot wire across the glass. LOL....Maybe buy some of those bug zappers that look like tennis rackets and stand them in front of the glass.

@AnitaAnne my local farm store is having their Chick days and they say that there is 170 breeds of chickens and they can order what ever you want. lol

I confess I am behind again after being away. Hope to get caught up tomorrow!


The AERC convention was pretty busy for me, but overall productive and fun. I spent the majority of my time in various meetings, but did get to see a couple educational seminars and walk around the trade show and tack sale. Happy to report I sold a few items and did not buy a thing - I did win a couple free shirts, which just happened to be teal. Perfect!

We got home at 1am Sunday night/Monday morning, so it was hard to drag myself out of bed. But the weather was glorious - more like May than March - so of course I wanted to ride. The whole story is in my journal.

I started with Phin:







Next up was George:





Then it was Link's turn:




There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Just the regular one - I didn't think the features of the Pro were worth an extra $600

@blue eyed pony , your new phone does take high quality photos. Bet you're thrilled about that. We haven't taken a pic with hubby's new phone because he still hasn't figured out how to get it from the phone to the computer and he doesn't want to take up the storage space on the phone.

@Tazzie , looking forward to meeting up with you at the show! I would like to be able to love on Izzie and Diego but Diego will just have to put up with twice the attention. LOL

@PoptartShop , sometimes events out of your control stand in the way of plans and isn't that aggravating! At least you got in a good ground session with her.

@lb27312 , I catch her doing it and I can promise she'll get snatched up by the back of the neck and her hiney swatted. It won't be our first go round over her rude behavior. LOL She's learned that reaching out and grabbing my hand with her claws when I'm done petting her is unacceptable but she also knows it's ok to do it to hubs because he doesn't correct her. At least she's an outdoor cat so the urine is on the outside of the house but still...

@RegalCharm , I love that idea!

@phantomhorse13 , glad you enjoyed the convention. You have a lot of self control not to buy anything, I always find something tempting. LOL

Are you happy with how Link is coming along? In the pics and videos I've seen it looks like he is doing good.


Hubby cracked me up today. Between figuring out all the bells and whistles on his new phone and reprogramming our house/barn alarm because a sensor had to be replaced he's been on info overload. Anyway, he was on a rant about having 3 different key fob remotes for the alarm and them taking 3 different kinds of batteries and he's holding one up in my face along with the keys attached to it asking where it came from. I told him it was the truck remote so then he wanted to know if it was a set I kept in the truck still thinking it was for the alarm but I kept them in the truck. No, it's the remote to the truck. Oh, are they your set of keys? Nope, it's the same set you've (as in hubby) been carrying for the last 10 years. He looked so confused. LOL I'm mean, I laughed at him all day about being brain dead. And it's not like he only occasionally drives my truck, he drives it way more than he drives his own. I'm wondering where the heck the last 10 years went because it seems like we just bought it.

@JCnGrace yes the nice camera was definitely a major selling point for me! It nearly competes with my fancy DSLR camera!

@JCnGrace if you want to keep his mind on overload tell him his new phone is a bigger computer than NASA had when they sent men to the moon. (True)

So storage space should not be a problem with pictures. Just tell him to email the pictures to himself or you.

Here it is almost 6:30 am and I am eating G.S. thin mint cookies. LOL See what happens when the dog starts licking my face at 4 AM to go out and I can't fall back to sleep.

@lb27312 I feel the same way, I feel like my sleep is all messed up lately.

@JCnGrace LOL his brain must've been completely fried! That's hilarious. I hope he comes to his senses today! & ugh, yes! I am hoping to ride tonight, but definitely lunging her first, in case those 'scary' kids are playing outside!

@RegalCharm omg I love girl scout cookies! I hope you were able to sleep!

I confess, I haven't slept good the past few nights (since the time change). I just feel way more tired than usual.

It started pouring yesterday shortly after I left work, so I didn't get to work Prom, but I will tonight. I also FINALLY sold my other saddle, so I'm heading out at lunch to ship it out. Hallelujah! I need to clean out the trailer & see what other things I can sell/get rid of. I try not to be a tack hoarder!

Ride more, worry less.

@PoptartShop LOL yea got to buy them since one GD is a girl scout along with multiply other stuff they sell during the school year. Especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The time change is something like jet lag. LOL... Hope you start getting your sleep pattern straightened out soon. I got an hour , hour and 1/2 nap around 8 this morning.

Cleaning out tack is tiresome just thinking about. I still have saddles and such from when I had horses. I think about selling them sometimes but you put a really good price on them and people still want them for nothing. So I just put them away. they ain't costing me nothing to keep. lol....

Rained yesterday morning then sunny in the afternoon, last night started raining again and so far this morning foggy and chilly and no sun.

@RegalCharm , I don't think he knows how to do computer stuff on it yet, that may take some time or one of the younger generation showing him how. Grandson keeps saying he's going to come and spend a few days when his Bronco gets out of the shop (which may be never at the rate it's going) and he'll know how.

Thin mints are my favorite GS cookie!

Keeping your tack is cool, you never know when you might want to ride again!

@PoptartShop , losing an hour is hard! When I die I know my niece will scarf up all our tack because she's as bad as I am about hoarding it. LOL

No sunshine today but at least it stayed dry. A few of the leaves on the weeping willow have opened up but it's always the first to welcome spring. The mimosa tree is the last to leaf out and so far behind the others you think it's dead. I don't know how many starts I've given my sister and she has her hubs pull them because I can't convince her they aren't really dead.Well I guess I did finally convince her with the last one which was growing good until she ran over it with the lawnmower. LOL

I confess I've been way too unproductive for the last few days probably more like a week if I'm honest about it.
