    No, that was Cassies mom Trisha. Zarinna and Zoey belong to Trishas sister Tasha. I dont see Cassie very much anymore. Shes been living with her dad and stepmom and doing very well I hear. Ill see her at Xmas I think.

    Oh lord, dont get me started about 4h. That story goes like this....I mentioned it to the girls mom and she was super interested/excited and even messaged the local leader regarding meetings time and dates etc, but never got a reply back. I was able to get the info for her and offered to take the girls to the first meeting, but the meeting got bumped to the following week and I couldnt take them because I had to work...and their mom couldn't be bothered to take them. I figured that if the mom couldnt be bothered to take them, why should I bend over backwards? Anyway, I dont think vaulting is offered but again, Id have to be the one to take the girls.

    Decent day today. Warm and windy. Washed some blankets and hung them out to dry. Got the parts for my dryer ordered and paid for...they should be in by Tuesday. Made a Tractor Supply run. Took Faith (one of my dogs) for a half mile walk. Treated myself to Mexican for lunch, and got 90% of my Xmas shopping done. Supposed to be really windy tomorrow. Ill probably hang a load of laundry out and wrap Xmas presents. On a different note....anyone know anything about vaulting? Was that a fad or is it still a thing/discipline? Since the girls think its super cool to stand up on the horses, I taught one of the girls a couple vaulting moves the other night. Mainly because it teaches them balance and boosts their confidence. But then I got to looking around on Facebook to see if there were any vaulting teams near me....and came up empty handed.

    Cold again here today but the rain has stopped and the sun is shining. The leaves are gorgeous. Took the blankets off the horses, and took the dogs with me to the grocery store. Got a crockpot of chili going now. A pic of Margarita and June soaking up the sun this morning.

    That was my exact first thought lol

    I dont miss my strep days. I was a carrier as a kid. Had my tonsils out and never caught it again, thank goodness. I wish I had a video camera to follow that little stinker Margarita around. Last week on a particularly warm day I saw her rolling in the shallow end of the pond. June was standing next to her. You had to be there but it was hilarious...but too far away to video. This evening I went out to feed the horses and Margarita looks like shes wearing a black blanket. It seems with all the rain, shes had herself a nice roll (or 3) in the mud. Silly filly.

    Yes! To be fair, my brother doesnt know that I know either. My brother has been confiding in a mutual friend of theirs/ours, who then told me. Im just playing it cool with my brother because their marriage really isnt any of my business, and I think eventually my brother will confide in me/ask me for advice. Im leaning towards going ahead and going to Thanksgiving at her dads...she is a good person, her family are good people, and it was very kind of her to invite me at all. It will probably be awkward, but my neice amd nephew will surely make up for that.

    Been cold wet and gross here. Cant get out of the 40s and windy rain. Think I may have caught a bug last night out feeding the horses in the pouring rain. Couldnt get warm enough all night and then at work today I was sitting with a patient who had the heat up so high everyone else compared her room to a sauna. I had a jacket on and was comfortable. So, someone pass me a cup of something warm....In the meantime, I have a situation where Id love to know what everyone else would do....here goes: My brothers wife has invited me to spend Thanksgiving with her and the kids at her dads house. (My brother will be working) Her brother will be there with his wife and toddler as well. Sounds ok right? Well, the problem is...I dont dislike my sister in law but we arent besties either. We dont have anything in common other than my brother and their kids, which is plenty for me BUT...I know my brother has very recently (and for a while now) been contemplating a divorce. She doesnt know. Im gonna feel awkward sharing a Thanksgiving with her....would you? Would you go to Thanksgiving at her dads? Or would you "have to work"? Im really torn.

    Having had my back broken by a nutty Appy mare years ago, I cant say Im much of an Appy fan. But, I saved this mare a good year ago along with Mr. Butters. She had lost all her hair, almost completely blind in one eye, and was an ugly skinny mess. She was down, and not at all interested in food. But, we got her up, loaded her and took her home where all she needed was a good betadine scrubbing, deworming, and to be turned out on some good grass for a few months. Her hair grew back in, and once her weight was good I took her for many test rides before I let the kids on her. Her history isnt well known, I get conflicting stories, or stories that dont make sense....like shes only green broke, which doesnt make sense to me when this mare has never put a foot wrong and has the nicest western jog. Shes been great with the kids, and thats all that matters to me.
