What's with the skeeters this year? Mom offered me some grazing time, I didn't want to!!!! Her put a lead rope on me and led me out. Her unlatched the lead and I headed back to the barn!!! Mom said "no barn, you get grass time", I waited till her back was turned hastened my way back inside hee hee!!! Mom was stupified, shoot I was too. Can you imagine, I Camryn the Queen of grass snatching turning down an acre of green nummies. That should give you a good idea of how bad the skeeters are this year. The scare me I tell ya.
You may recall my potties in the barn and how Dad hung a nylon strap across to keep me out? Well, it took me two whole days, but I figured it out as any Haflinger would of course. First I noticed a knot in the middle, no big deal for me. I pushed a bit and the knot gave way, so I got to take a hefty dump hee hee. Mom of course fixed it better than Dad had. No problem, I just put my Haflinger thinking cap on. Turned out if I lowered my head just so, edge forward till the strap was at top of my head, lift and walk right under. HA on you Mom!!! Problem was my timing though, Mom came down to the barn just as I was on my way back thru. Her'd have been befuddled big time if I hadn't been caught in the act.
About the saddle dilemma, a friend is coming to check out my to small saddle for her TWH on Wed. Otherwise it'll be on Ebay soon. Mom checking out some none pricey saddles figuring we'll upgrade mabye next year. Her has champagne taste n all. Her did a template of my withers, according to it, I should fit a Bighorn Haflinger saddle, BUT (notice it's a big but, no not butt) with my shoulder atrophy once it fills in that saddle may be to small!!! Her wrote the saddle selling place explaining this and wondering if maybe the Abetta round skirt draft would be better. Course the skirt length comes into play as well, so her asked how long skirt was too. Her don't like synthetics much but, figures once we eventually get our good saddle, the synthetic will be our ride in any weather saddle. Her checked out the site Pippin and Doc mentioned so most likely that's the place we'll go for a good one later.
Hafy hugs to all...
