@JCnGrace - we are talking about a new barn! Have you been eavesdropping?? LOL. If we put up a new barn, I can use the 20x20 for feed storage and tractor parking and have the whole 12x15 shed as my tack room. I'm looking at 24x32 carports so I can build up the sides & stalls in wood.

Courage is taking just one more step...

@Change , LOL no eavesdropping but I remember the barn you built a few years ago was sized for hay storage + Callie and Tango. I also know how easy it is to get attached and horses that are supposed to go on down the road eventually end up becoming permanent family members. Thunder was supposed to be a resell and 20 years and a bunch of offers to buy later he's still here and ain't going anywhere. I would never even put a ridiculous price on his head like I do some of the others when people bug me about wanting to buy them.

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

@Change Here are some pictures of barns starting from large car ports. Myself I like the taller ones so you can put the stalls on extensions from the sides for the stalls and have the whole middle for an isle.

And I will be short of replies once again.

The darn coronavŪrus is turning my life into a mess. Country has lots of restrictions, shopping is a nightmare, and I am taking care of my parents that belong to a risk group. Plus I fear for my job, for now we are not stopping, but I would not be surprised situation changes or since I live in a different district I may bem forbidden to travel there... Ugh. I want 2021.

Appart from that, at the barn Tuya got reunited with the filly, which made her a bit anxious when taken away, but should be good to ride. BO sees no problem but I didn't ask why he did it. It was quite cold, so I only took her out today for a groom. She has 4 new herd friends, from a total of 6 BO bought to resell. All pure Lusitano mares. I love the brown one.

She is still limping at the trot, and the farrier said hooves were not that bad, so yeah, we will see how it goes from now. He only came today and ground is very hard with lots of ups and downs from hooves sinking in mud.

Pictures of the herd - taken a bit far on purpose but you can zoom in - and of "mother and daughter"

@JCnGrace : I have seen Link buck while playing in the paddock and sincerely hope I never have to experience it under saddle!!

@blue eyed pony : cute pandas. hope you get some answers for Ikora tomorrow.

@PoptartShop : happy birthday Promise! hope you had a fun horsey weekend. imagine grocery shopping was awful..

@Caledonian : how are things over there in terms of COVID-19? is it impacting you?

@Tazzie : hope you are able to continue going to work. are your kids off school?

@Captain Evil : bummer about missing what sounds like a good time. but not being able to go back home would be a big catch..

@TuyaGirl : I hope your parents (and you of course) stay safe. fingers crossed about your job. sorry to hear Tuya is still sore.


Yesterday, DH and I took a drive.. and came home with another horse! The whole story is in my journal.




We are expecting a hard freeze tonight, so I decided I better cover the silly flowers that had come up too soon. Used the materials I had at hand:




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

Thanks everyone for your encouragement!

She made a liar of me today. I wholly expected her to flex dog lame (and said as much to the vet) and she trotted up sound as a bell both before AND after flexion tests. SO, as of today, based on what she saw today, my vet told me Ikora can come back into work! I'm insanely excited.

Meanwhile Chuck is going well, he's had 7 rides now and he's accepting of a rider in walk, trot, and canter. He's going to be asked to work alongside another horse soon, but I don't have another small/lightweight rider around on a daily basis so I'm waiting on a friend to get back to me about her availability. She's just bought a green broke 3 year old Friesian cross, so it'll benefit her to work her horse with company too!

So here we go, FINALLY, two months late, with having three in work!

I have two confessions:

1. My hands have never been so clean. I truly thought that some of my skin around my fingernails was just sort of a "dirt tattoo" and was permanent, but...nope!

2. We don't have a thermometer in the house, and I don't think ever had, BUT I do have two equine rectal thermometers in the barn. One has been used and is resting in its alcohol bottle with a string and alligator clip attached. The other has never been used, and is still in its box, although it is probably ten years old at this point.

Can you appropriate an unsullied rectal horse thermometer for oral use in hominids??? Thoughts...?? Besides eeeewww, I mean.

I confess, Iím a bit behind! Will respond to everyone tomorrow!

Ended up working from home starting today, last night work emailed everyone telling us to work remotely from home. I was like...okay!

Iím honestly not complaining! LOL. Wonít have to commute & I love being home! Getting paid too which is good of course.

But thanks you guys! Promise enjoyed her birthday! Hahaha. Gave her some apples & she was going crazy for them haha. Didnít have a chance to get her a party hat, but she probably wouldíve knocked it off anyway.

Still so fluffy, but shedding! The weather has been wacky...went back down to the 30ís tonight. Ugh! But during the day itís in the 50ís! I canít keep up!
