    Paint is soo expensive! I need to do some work to mine like sand it down, paint it and put new diamond plate on the front. Hopefully since we didn't spend too much on the trailer, the face lift on it doesn't cost more than it's worth. I don't want to buy a new one since I don't haul often and this is a good trailer for what I need

    I always hated the last two weeks at a job, you always feel awkward and it takes forever for the time to pass it seems.

    That's what I figured, it seems easier to just call those who are out of town than spend money and time on extra cards lol

    Are save the dates worth it or would just a wedding invitation a few months prior to the date be fine?

    I would get a signed contract stating that he would get such and such for moving with the company if he moves and stays for a year or something. Then it wouldn't be based on he said, she said.

    Seriously, stay where you are. It sounds like a really bad idea to move. It would be far easier on both of you for him to find a different job where you are than to pick up and move your entire lives for no gain.

    Carol Ann got a street legal dirt bike so she probably spends 90% of her time cruising around on that. Other than that from what I can tell she's still working in retail and still doing pretty good for herself!

    Stay safe everyone! I hate tornadoes. We're dealing with flooding here right now, finally have some sun and heat after a week of rain! We got about 140mm of rain in the past few days.. the barns measure read 5.5 inches. We already own a house and I have wanted to move back into the city(to an acreage more but in reality that's not affordable yet) for awhile but the boy has wanted to upgrade the current house. Current house was built in the 80's I believe but as far as I know it has new insulation and it has new siding as well as lots of renos already and we're currently doing more. The renos we had were done by the previous owner and are kind of shotty. So we have to fix his screw ups and continue upgrading ourselves. We're currently upgrading with intent to sell so just curb appeal and little things here and there. We live 10 minutes from the city in a small town and we both work and play in the city. Indy is boarded 10 minutes from my work and everything is close in the city. The town has everything you need in a pinch (gas, grocery, pub, some fast food) and honestly it's a great little town and we live in an awesome neighborhood close to churches, schools, the firehall is down the block and main street is also just a block away, everything is within walking distance. It's QUIET which is the main thing I love, it's like country living but not we also have a large lot that our big dog can actually run around on with a two car garage on it still and we owe very little on it compared to what similar houses go for in the city. The problem is the house, it's small and although we don't need big right now, it's laid out terrible. The rooms are tiny, the living room is cramped, the kitchen has no counter space or storage and the stairway downstairs is small as well, you can barely get a double bed down the stairs. The bathroom downstairs is in what we think to be an old dirt storage room and is again tiny. There are no hallways to separate rooms so it's really all laid out in one line. Does it sound worth it to completely reno it? We want to do the following.. Expand the house out, knock down walls, relocate a bathroom and furnace room, new furnace, central air, expand kitchen, new counter tops, new cabinets, new flooring and sub-flooring, fence, sod, finish garage, and probably more. 90% of the work would be done ourselves and with the help of friends so labor is the cost of beer and food. Supplies wouldn't be to painful as we have connections for most of what we need and the labor wouldn't be done just by people who think they know what they're doing, our friends are certified to do the jobs. So is it worth it or does it sound like a better idea to just move into the city for a few years, save then get our acreage? Renos would cost maybe $50g and that's cheaper than the price comparison to what kind of house we want in the city. So in reality it would be easier to save for the acreage if we stayed but the issue is still deciding if the renos are worth it on such an old house that basically needs to be completely re-done in a town that we don't work in or play in. Any opinions?

    Kristen: That's exactly what it is like. Though he's not in a stall, he's outside 24/7 in a big run shared with another horse. Doesn't have room to full out gallop but he gets movement. The BO's horse lives in a pasture where she can gallop around and she's stocked up too :/ Hilary: Yuck! I'll look into it though, it's possible. He had a bout of regular worms but he's since been treated for that. Poor man.

    Good luck! Let us know how it goes :) Indy hasn't been sound for a week now. I got his feet trimmed and his back adjusted on Tuesday and I was so excited to go work him the next day and see how he felt only to find his feet hurt and his legs were swollen on top of it all. Has anyone ever had their horses legs stock up for no logical reason? I have no idea what's happening but a few horses at the barn will come in with swollen legs. They're sound on them but they're still swollen and sometimes hot too. It's bothering me not knowing what's going on and I want to take him to the vet but if he's sound, I don't know what they would be able to find or do.

    and my cars lights came back on a day later and now has a new sensor in it. Runs better already, but ouch.
  14. The Bionic Oscar Mayer Weiner Thread

    Typical vehicles.. My air flow sensor has been wonky for the past few weeks. So it would throw me codes a few times and it was always for the sensor. So I cleaned the sensor a few times and after the third I basically gave it one more chance not to throw codes at me or else I was going to replace the part. I cleaned my air filter the last time too so I would know if the sensor was for sure shot or if it was just getting dirty because my filter was gross. Cleaned both and had the code cleared ( the car shop I had clearing my codes probably thought I was nuts because I came there three times in one week lol and it was always the same guy working..oops). Well lo and behold I drive home and the lights come on again. I have a Corolla which is my first import i've ever had or worked with and the stupid thing not only gives me a check engine light but also both my traction lights come on. One flashes so it was really driving me nuts having these three orange lights on my dash. So I go and order my sensor yesterday and just one little sensor that tells the computer how much air is going into my fuel is $160. That's with a discount too.. What happens when I go to leave my parents house yesterday afternoon? lights go away and it's driving fine again. My guess is, it took a bit for the computer to realize the filter and sensor were clean and that it could get it's information clear again. So I guess i'll be calling the parts shop in the morning and cancelling my order hopefully before they put their order in. It wasn't in stock yesterday. Similar thing happened with Indy too, I went out to the barn and have been brushing him on his days off and giving him grain. I go out on Monday and his back legs are swollen. So I brush as much mud as I could off him and had my coach check it out since I couldn't see why or feel heat. She looked at him, felt a bit of heat since her hands were colder than mine from just being outside for awhile and she said he had these things called Scratches or Mud fever as I learned it's also called from googling it. In the 18 years i've been in the horse industry I have never dealt with that or heard of it. So she recommended I go to the vet because the vet we use makes this cream that would heal them in a week or less. So I go home that night and order it the next morning. Spend $70, go to the barn to use it and I hosed off his legs just so I wouldn't have to scrub any sore spots to get mud off and I noticed...what she had me feel yesterday was no longer there and he wasn't very swollen anymore.... had her check, and she confirms that he doesn't have Scratches and I now have an un used tub of expensive cream for an infection i've never heard of prior to the day before. can't return it and can't seem to sell it so I guess it goes into my trailer and kept 'just in case'. At least my coach was really awesome and offered to waive a trailer fee I owed her for a previous haul trip to a show because she felt bad. Lesson learned I guess, hose off your horses legs and look at them with a fine tooth comb before spending an arm and a leg on some meds you may not need.

    Forever 21 has a bunch of stuff for cheap and their online store is FAR easier than the physical one lol or there is Wet Seal as well. Indy turned 16 last month, he has had this weird muscle thing going on for a month as well. I'm not sure if it's another thing thats in his head to get out of work or if he is actually hurting. My gut says he is actually hurting since he will start out stiff/sore but ALWAYS works out of it and is happy to work. So I bought him some Recovery EQ supplement on the weekend and i'm going to start him on it tonight. Anyone ever have this happen to them? He can walk on concrete fine, rocks are sensitive since he's barefoot which is understandable but we are always on dirt or grass when we work. He has been barefoot for over a year and both my trusted farriers say he has very strong hooves and can handle being without shoes. It doesn't matter what footing we're on (grass, inside dirt, outside dirt etc) at the walk you barely notice it but the trot it's bad. I've felt it, watched it and had others watch and it seems to be in his left front shoulder. After a few lengthen and shorten laps around the ring he works right out of it. I don't understand horses
