Horse-crazy girl

Yep; I've always been one. And today I felt like a giddy kid when Rick gave me the all-clear to train and show my new horse!
"So the leg looks good now, Doc?"
We acquired Lance with a known suspensory injury last September, but I didn't get to bring him home until this month because of another horse I had here in training. I've been exercising him very lightly; now I can proceed with confidence – albeit slowly and carefully because he is still young, green and out of shape.

I look forward to taking my new guy in the dressage ring, on trail rides, and on our family horse-camping trips for many years!

That's the good news from . . .

Thanks, everyone! I AM happy, and I think he's beautiful, too. ;-)

Glad you liked the cookbook recommendation, Becka. Like I said, all of Molly's/Moosewood's are good.

Don't worry, TL. The sheep have been getting attention, too.

Susan, the vast majority of my horse updates are on my other blog (listed at the bottom of "LINKS" on the righthand side).

Thanks for the nomination, Laurie! I finally took all the award buttons off my blog; I've been doing this long enough that I've participated in quite a few. I'll pass on this; if you want to learn more about me you can click on the label "Awards" to read my back posts that answer various awards questions.

Learn Chinese language on hanbridgemandarin said...

The best place to learn Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
