@walkinthewalk Radar always drank Grape Ne-Hi on MASH.

@Woodhaven you being so young you wouldn't remember the sodas from way back in the 50's.

@walkinthewalk thanks for asking.
My son is doing fine. I saw him on Saturday. The lump on his head is almost gone. He's a bit sore, but nothing scary.
The lady who hit him has insurance with Geico and they have handled the claim very nicely. Gave him more than he expected for his car, will be paying his medical bill, pain and suffering and compensating him for time off work.
He found a replacement car that is a small step up from what he had (it was a beater ) so he's content.

Hope your boys feel better now that the chiro has worked on them.

I'm off to the barn now to get mine out and moving a bit. They've been incarcerated in their stalls for almost a solid week because of mud! I hope the arena is not too crowded to ride. Tucker will be a handful. Raven might be too.

Regal Charm I was born in the 40's but I have to admit I didn't know much about soft drinks in those days. We never had it at home unless there was a special occasion and then it was gingerale. Mom also gave us gingerale when we were sick. It was a real treat.
As a result I rarely ever drink soda pop, just doesn't interest me and I would rather have a drink of water or a nice cup of tea.

Weedlady I hope you get your horses out for some exercise. It has been muddy here as well but the last few days we got a little snow and it is just cold enough to ride and the snow cushions the ground so Sis and I went out for a lovely ride today. It was just below freezing, sun and no wind so we got out around about four farms and through two different woods. I think the horses enjoyed it too and if the weather cooperates we'll go again tomorrow, just pick a different direction.
I'm glad your son is doing well and he has been compensated for the car and the medical bills, that could put a young man back financially and not even his fault.

I'm still catching up, but meanwhile, this is for anyone who's ever had to do their own business accounts. I well remember the pain of starting out on that...

SueC is time travelling.

@SueC - I have to show that to one of my daughters! Her first year owning a business. Just got her tax bill and has to set up for quarterly taxes now.

In other news, it's still snowing here. Interstate was closed a couple days. Stuck in town with the commercial truckers. Nice fellows.

Horses are not getting much attention, but lots of hay. So they're loving it.

I'm ready for warmer weather.

I absolutely do not envy you this time of year

Our big issue in the south is flooding - major flooding. Not where I live but the TVA is struggling with how much water to release so that areas in states below Tennessee donít end up under water. New Orleans was in jeopardy

Valley Vet is in Kansas. The lady who took my order the first of the week, said they have the same issue. She commented there are farms STILL under water from 2019 floods

I donít even know how to comment to that - folks are not only losing their livelihood they are losing their family lands. How on earth does one recover from that.

On a brighter note (literally:). The sun is out and thereís no rain scheduled until Monday night in my area.

DH brought home a dozen chocolate covered strawberries and $1,300 worth of parts for my John Deere-WooHoo on the tractor parts, lollol.

There are parts on the tractor that have been chugginí along for 15 years , have simply worn out, and need replaced.

The spindles on the mower deck, for example, cost over $300/each. We did get a price break, as the JD dealer buys parts for their trucks from DH, who always gives them a price break, lollol. I love small towns

Been absent from this thread for a bit.

Weather here is kinda sorta shifting from rainy season to dry season. I haven’t lived here long enough to really know the patterns, but it seems things are a bit off kilter. The river dried up in January, then has been running with water off and on when there is enough rain. Last year, it dried up in December and stayed dry until May.

We got the new horse a couple weeks ago. All 12 hands of her. The 2 are getting along well. Skippy seems happy to have a pasture mate again after we sold the cows.

Harvested our white hominy corn a few days ago. We got about 12 bags of ears. We shucked it by hand in one night with help from neighbors. The ears have been drying in the sun since then. Last night and tonight we have been shelling it off of the cobs.

Put the bareback pad on the new horse today and ponied her out for a test run into the barangay (village). She did just fine. Changed out on the way back. Rode Pinatubo and ponied Skippy. Skippy wasn’t too happy about that arrangement, but she settled in to it after we “discussed “ the matter.

Not about horses but still a Kodger

Hi I thought I would post a picture of my brother, he knows nothing about horses but has done this Lopper cross country ski race for more years than I can remember, when he was younger he did the 50K but the last few years he has downgraded to the 27K.
In this picture he did the race just a week ago he is 82 and competes in the over 70 division (they don't have one for over 80) he was a little disappointed that he only placed 12th out of 20 competitors but as he said he has to compete against those young 70's whippersnappers.
I think, and all his family think he did awesome.
This award was presented to him at the Awards Dinner for being the oldest competitor in the race.

Just another Kodger with a passion.thumbnail_Uncle%20Jim-Gatineau-Loppet-Feb-2020.jpg

It's a lovely weekend here Sis and I rode yesterday as the ground has softened and not so hard on the horses' feet and we'll be riding again today.

On a side note neither Sis or I can ski. It's horses for us
