    How does it feel to want?

    LOL

    I board at one. It's lovely.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    I used to have one. Now, I don't. But I'm determined to.

    Well you could come board where I am......lovely event barn, full care, indoor, big outdoor, 300+ owned acres plus another couple thousand you can use if you shut the gates and don't chase the cows. 5 LARGE turn outs (like up to 25 acre size), and we have cross country fences! Of couse it's probably a bit of a commute for you seeing as it's in California and all.

    We are at one too, and it's the only way to go if you work during the day.

    You all probably canter bareback, too.

    I hate you.

    But I will make it happen.

    Not a chance. I have ridden a horse exactly 1 time since Xmas. Once. And felt like a big bad cowboy for cantering a broke to death 22 year old QH under full tack.

    But I am oh so jealous of my old barnmate who canters her sometimes incendiary chestnut mare in a bridle and nothin' else. It is a distant goal at this point........

    Cantering bareback? How bout just riding?

    My horse is at a full care barn with indoor. Doing nothing. Sigh. But he likes it there.

    The indoor is good for rolling.
    We couldn't all be cowboys, so some of us are clowns.

    I can canter bareback. Not so sure my horse is currently up for it though (injury).

    I hope you find a good situation soon!

    FG, our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to not win the contest of 'who has the most pathetic equestrian hobby at this moment'. This is our mission.

    After you have that baby.

    And after I get my horse sound.

    Ok, there are a few constraints to work out, but you know what I mean!

    Ah Lori you are wise.

    Like in Notting Hill when Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts and the others are sitting around the table vying for the last brownie... playing the "My Life Is Worse Than Yours" game... (Yes I watch a lot of TV these days.) I really don't want that brownie...

    It is so hard not to lament. I can't help it sometimes, LOL! I feel less a horse person everyday. I live vicariously through my barn friends' emails and texts. It stinks, man!

    If I gain another ounce, Rooster the QH will rebel against hauling my fat a$$ around the arena. So no pizza for me. Even though Rooster looks like he himself has NEVER missed a meal. Not. Ever.
