Hi Chris: I gather from your Facebook posts, that you are clearing out your Dad's house. How is it going. One thing we did when my mother's house needed the same thing was to call Goodwill Services. That was 17 years ago but they can appraise antiques and will clear out cupboards and take ordinary dishes etc that are not wanted. As I say, it was 17 years ago but perhaps they still offer that service.
On another note, again work has sidelined me from the barn again this week. Tomorrow is supposed to be good weather. Later! Gail.
Hi Chris: We missed your shining face at the barn with the saddler. I took a day off the sales game and stayed and watched the show. Man, she took a lot out of Spuds saddle as far as stuffing. I guess he has his own stuffing now. It was an interesting day. How did you end up with no car. Hope you are ok! G
Again, I have not been to the barn since Sunday. He has been ridden though. Thought I would tell you I saw on EMG that over 20 Rockies went to auction at claremont last night. Foals and yearlings and I guess older ones as well. Not good to hear. Gail.
Well, this week has ended up the same as all the others. I had plans to ride but my job got in the way again. I was going up today . Have not been since Sunday. Thank goodness for Leslie. Costs though. Going Friday and have a seminar on woodlots and invasive plant species all day Sat. Will hope to see people Sunday. Free and food on Sat.. Who could miss that? How about you? Gail.
Thanks for the feedback and I just wondered what kind of riding style Jo had and if you had seen her ride at all. I have not as I am never up in the evenings. I went and bought a new dressage whip at Dudleys as I expect that even that I can see the other one in plain view, I will never be able to retrieve it. Gail.
Went to the barn today and Denise and Ted were out for a walk. One on foot and the other on a horse. Pekoe and I went out alone and took the path that Denise is talking about by the woods. I talked to Jo about maybe riding Pekoe as I am not sure when Rosemary is going to be able to get a lesson with Leslie. She is booked until about Dec.1 . Potluck lunch I think noon Dec. 6. Don't quote me. Have you seen Jo ride? I have not at all but Les says she is fairly good. She kind also. Talk to you later. Gail.
Hi Chris: I was wondering if you were ready to ride again? If so, what time Saturday would work for you? I have not been up since Wed. but work pays his bills . Gotta make it on the weekend. I will also check with Denise. Did you have any info for her about Sunnyvale? I sure did. G
Thought I would see how the horking is going. I have the old man here still doing the same thing. Good fun. Quiet day in the country! Not! I did not go riding Sunday as I am sure I had an H1N1 reaction Sat. night. Every muscle that I own and some that I don't own hurt and locked up on me from about the neck down. Tylenol and heating pad did the trick but it was worse than usual so I guess that was the cause. Riding again on Wednesday and Les rides today. Gail.
Well, Denise and I went out for a hack and had a good time at least for over hour yesterday afternoon. It was warm and then cooled off. She had found an old path that runs up by Les and Jeff's house below where you go into the woods. We went along that and Pekoe went up the hill and Lad went back the other way. Pekoe was all wired up as he could hear Lad in the bushes and wanted to run away on me. They both spent a good part of the hack rein wrenching and wanting to run off. Lad is reborn. Leslie said to tell you that Spud's leg is down and healing really well. I want to be around for the show when you get back on him as he is full of it. Bucking and running around like a looney bin. All is well though. What is your state now? The old man is horking and spewing here. I came home stiff and sore last night and Denise caught a chill from standing around so I think I am doing an inside work and lay around day here. Gail.
Glad you went for help. The old man thought he was better this am but was coughing up yellow phlegm. I thought that was normal? No? Anyhow he has gone tearing off to the clinic. Denise and Ted went walking somewhere up north on the property and found a trail we are going to ride today. Can't tell where it is until I see it. Will report back Gail.
Good day to you! The weekend looks good for out doors. What about tomorrow ie Sat at 1. I think 10 is better for me Sunday as we are supposed to be going out but Pat is snotting all over the place so could be pm works the best then. Got to wait and see for Sunday. Gail. Got the H1N1 shot yesterday.
Hi! Did you get outside yesterday? I was wiped out from Sat. as I had done counter canter and a lot of stuff I have not tried for about 2 years. I talked to Denise about not making it. Did Donna get the message I left her and did she get there with you? I sat on my fat arse and watched TV all afternoon. This morning at 8 on went the snow tires. Gail.
