  1. And meet Solo!

    Wow, 16th century! The only structures we have in the continental US that are that old are Native American. I know I saw buildings that old and older when I was in Europe, but it just didn't register then.
  2. And meet Solo!

    Yep, he couldn't care less about that plastic. I love that brick stable. How old is it?
  3. Happy birthday!

    I wonder if mice get dementia.
  4. Happy birthday!

    Finally! Someone who's older than I am!

    PD, I'm glad your wife is home where you both can rest easier. RRW, good job! Weren't you one of the people on the group diet awhile back? Who knew all you had to do was leave home and work round the clock to lose weight?! Maybe you can start a weight loss clinic and get the patrons to do your chores. For Turkey Day--going to spend it with my sisters and a few children and grandchildren of theirs. We get catered turkey and dressing and we each make a side dish. A day of unabashed gluttony!

    I've never had a small area of containment to start a horse. I've never had a runner or bucker either. I'd rather have an open area if I did. I usually line drive before getting on one so they already know what the reins are. The biggest problem is usually making them move. They don't get that you are going to go with them! The only hospital trip in adulthood was caused by my present horse that stumbled and fell down. I do get not breaking one in wet, muddy conditions although it would make a softer landing.

    Okay, I didn't understand. I can ride in my pasture all year round.
  8. And meet Solo!

    She said "no facilities" so I assumed no place to ride or longe.
  9. And meet Solo!

    Where was the pasture he was in in the picture? That would be tough to have no turnout.

    PD, I'm so sorry. It's been a really tough year for your wife and you.

    LC, I'm hearing that water solution about fifty years too late, but it's good to know in case I meet another opinionated ram. I read your blog entries. You really are an entertaining writer. Your mare looks like a different horse from when you got her. I'm glad she landed with you.

    I love sheep! I can't wait for the lamb pictures. I begged for a lamb when I was a kid. (No pun intended.) I finally got one and I named him Lambie Pie. He was spoiled rotten and butted everyone but me. When he finally got on my father's bad side, he sent him to live with a farmer friend. (At least that's what he said.)

    Well, that didn't take long. I guess he'll be flying over jumps next week!

    I'm sorry your wife is back in the hospital, PD. But I get her reluctance. I come from a long line of pain deniers.

    Belated Happy Veterans Day, PD. Did you know that several restaurant chains give free meals to vets on Veterans Day?

    Odie: I liked the way I smelled. George: Better you than me, Pardner.

    It was 32, PD. Too cold for me!

  19. And meet Solo!

    I love him! My first horse (pony) was a Welsh. She was a legend in her own time and after.
  20. I'm exhausted just reading about your summer, NN! You sure get a lot of mileage out of that little guy. I can't wait to see his "airs above the ground!"

    When I was teaching, I never called in sick unless I was physically too ill to get there. I didn't worry about spreading it to the kids because that's where I got it! It helped that you could save your sick and personal days and be paid for 1/3 of them at retirement. I had saved enough to buy my tractor!

    I have to agree with NP, Queen. Only you can make that call.
  23. election results

    And, PD, I think the voters were making a statement that we ARE an inclusive society, and we won't let Washington tell us we're not.
