Skip to comments.The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread! - Thread SEVEN
Posted on 07/14/2005 3:23:55 PM PDT by HairOfTheDog
This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.
I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts look for it there and wake the thread up!
I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in . There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news . Legislation that might affect horse owners.
So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.

New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
She's lucky. Got more paint pictures?:')
Oh that poor kid. Her darn eye is completely swollen shut! Eeesh.
On a sad note, it has been so hot, that a couple of chickens and turkeys died at the fair. I am going back tomorrow, so I will try and take some pictures. I was sitting on a bench, eating my fries, and people watching. You just wouldn't believe some of them.
Well, if I'm moved I still plan to breed Sarah Lee with an Overo next year and see what happens. We are talking about buying a registered mare too.
What time are yall leaving tomorrow?
about 6pm. We will head out, get a take out and drive through the night. We have friends who are going to have the kids tommorow 1pm till 4pm so that deaconjim and i can sleep. ? : ) thats the idea anyway! LOL
did your sister have any ideas of places my friends can rent when they move down? So far they have drawn a blank. Biggest problem is they have pets!
Have a safe and enjoyable trip! Good luck in your house hunting.
Thanks, talking of which, I must get down to business and wheedle out which properties we want to go see, and which ones are still available. : )
Shoot. I'm sorry. I forgot. I just paged her.
I prefer night driving too:') I can't remember the last time we took a two week vaction. It's been at least 6 years.
deaconjim and I have always had to make sure someone was caring for his parents and arrange and pay for someone to come in, and the few times we have left it to family promises we have either not been able to go and lost the vacation, or we have had to come home early. Not that I regret any of that, but........
Now that his parents are in Heaven, I can, probably for the first time since we have been together, really relax on vacation. : )

My best advice to jockeys...DON'T fall off!!!
Yall have a good time. I'll try to catch you tomorrow before you leave. No cares, ok? :')
Sounds like good advice! Is this an experienced opinion?
Welcome to the thread!
Have a good trip, you two!
You have a good time too and a safe trip and a word of advice, it's always wise to have somthing at hand to throw when husbands make comments like that! LOL : )
"Sounds like good advice! Is this an experienced opinion?
Welcome to the thread!"
Thank you for the welcome. This is not an experienced opinion. I don't ride 'em, just bet on them. LOL.
By the way, I recognize you from last nights DUmmie discussion. I guess you didn't realize that you were a DUmmie newbie, huh? LOL.
Oh I read 'em once in awhile. Sometimes they're funny, last night it wasn't.
I swear if I didn't have bad luck I'd have no luck at all:)
