And Then There Were Two

The lady to give shots couldn't make it until tomorrow, but I went to the barn in the morning anyway.  And hurray I finally go the chance to ride our horse a little (tabiano).  He would be a great horse if it wasn't for the bad horseman on his back.

The guy bringing 3 horses only brought 2.  He sold the other one.  The Boss and I both liked the 15 hand, red (sorrel), Kentucky Mountain horse gelding.  He is a little under weight, but we can fix that easily.  He's very calm, obedient and smooth riding.  The Boss can even mount him from the right side thus avoid putting pressure on her bad left knee.  Yeah, we now have 2 horses, and need to acquire another saddle.

I'll be meeting the "shot" lady there tomorrow morning to inoculate the tabiano.  If it's not raining I'll probably saddle up again.  If it's raining I'll brush the sorrel.  He's shedding his shaggy winter hair.

Maybe some pictures later.

Maybe Tomorrow

The last I heard the guy with 3 gaited horses is to arrive sometime tomorrow.  Hopefully true, but in the mean time the Boss is checking the 'net for a horse to go see.

I'll be at the barn tomorrow to fill the feed bin.  Will probably meet a lady to give the horse shots.  Hopefully, hopefully I'll get the chance to ride a little.

Bridging

Bought a small pad that is to fill the gap just behind the whithers.  It was recommended after sending some pictures to customer service.  It is memory foam covered with tacky-tack.  If this works as intended, the high pressure points due to the bridging will be minimized, resulting in a more comfortable horse and more stable saddle.

There's supposed to be 3 gated horses arriving at the stable where we board our horse this coming week.  The property owners son-in-law and the Boss are hoping 2 will be suitable for them.

Assuming we end up with another horse we'll be saddle shopping again.  But for which horse?  That depends on how the existing saddle fits each.

Now Flushing

Six years ago I was in Poland and Germany.  When I was asked if I was American, I was eager to say yes.  A couple years before that when I was in Austria, the answer was a proud yes.

How this country has changed.  The federal government, all it's agencies and a growing percentage of the population have become an embarrassment.  The shining beacon of tolerance, strength, protector and champion of liberty is no more.  This once great nation is on an accelerated spiral down the can.

That's Funny

Ever watch horses play?  I saw that today for the first time.  Interesting and funny.

Constitutional

Kansas now has "constitutional carry".  Shall we celebrate?
At least a few states actually follow the law of the land, the constitution. 

Either follow the constitution, or change it.
Folks, it's not that complicated.

Going Quietly

For years I've been writing about government screwing the citizens, and about the steps being taken to turn us all into subjects.  Over that time it has gotten worse and not better.  This is not the country I remember in my youth.  I don't even recognize it anymore.  Complaining about the inevitable has gotten tiring, which is probably why I don't post much about it anymore.  If I did it would be more of the same, only worse.  I wonder when the revolt will happen.  There's fighting all over the world, so why not here?  Most likely this once shining beacon of liberty will go quietly, as we destroy this country from within.
