The Next Day

So the next day after shoveling out the stalls I took my mare for a short ride by myself.  Last spring she had issues going across open fields, and knowing that the corn is down that's where we headed.Some mares have an issue with leaving the herd, and my girl is no exception.  She was a bit antsy going up the road and a lot antsy in the picked corn field.  Not having much time, I headed her back down the road, and barely had control of her speed.  I turned her into a front yard, and the next thing I knew I was on the ground.  Really don't know what happened.  Still sore today.

Ouch

So Saturday we decided to go trail riding. While getting the horses ready to go, I heard the Bosses horse squeal.I turned quickly and saw the Boss stagger into the wall.  Her horse probably thought some other horse or critter was pushing too close to his back end.  The Boss was not touching him, but should have been, and bending down to brush the outside of his rear leg.  He kicked back and caught her in the nose with his leg.

So we didn't go riding anywhere other than the ER.  The horse broke her nose.

Insulted

Do not take XXXX if you are allergic to XXXX
The riding mower engine dies if the blades are not disengaged when shifting into reverse
Some autos have automatic headlights if the engine is on
Signs say don't put your hands under the mower deck
Automatic car door locks

I'm getting sick of being insulted by commercials and federally mandated warnings.

Could be Sexist


Mud

Had hoped to go riding this weekend, but too much rain lately.  The trails will be deep in mud.  The horse can handle that easily, as long as they're not carrying a passenger.  Since I'm more passenger than good rider, there's a chance I could cause the horse to get hurt.  Would rather that not happen.

Next weekend promises to be better.

Brain Dead Moment

So I put empty brass in the tumbler.  A mixture of 9mm, 357, 45acp and 454 was in for cleaning in ground walnut shells.  That was a brain dead moment.  The 2 smaller diameter brass will slip easily into the 45 caliber brass, except when walnut grit is present and vibrating.  Something like 40% came out stuck inside the other.  Separating them was a real pain in the ass.

Since I hadn't cleaned the vibrator, separator or changed the medium in years, I cleaned both and changed medium.  As I type this only 45 caliber brass is now tumbling.
