The Last TIme

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on February 20, 2011, 4:18 pm

by Peanut, age 10 The worst pain comes not from goodbye, But the terrible pain that comes in your heart after it. It’s the memory of that dreaded moment when you are alone, And are forced to say I love you one last time. It’s after you have left, And are left only with memories. It’s when you feel like when he’s gone he left with your dreams, And a large chunk of your heart. It’s the ripping pain in your chest when you remember the last time… It’s the memory

The New Journey.......... BG's Accounting...

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 19, 2011, 11:11 pm

TagPart OneIt took a while before that accounting was actually provided. Seems like there was another meeting at sometime in there that wasn't productive where the accounting was again requested. We weren't prepared to continue talking to WF without this paperwork and Dave let her know that was the case.The day did come when WF gave Dave an accounting of the work he claims to have done as well as additional charges he figured he was entitled to receive. This information came on four sheets of paper.

The New Journey.......... a Little Input..... and a Request...

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 19, 2011, 1:31 am

Here's the initial series Wrapping Up a Difficult Summer that led to this series if you missed it.Part OneYears ago when Legs was barely broke, I was in a vehicle accident right down the street from my farm. We were just making the right hand turn when some kid tried to pass us on the shoulder plowing right into the right rear quarter panel on my truck. I was thrown into the door and my head and shoulder struck the window not hard enough to break the glass but hard enough for me to see stars. My

Fire Breathing Red Head

Mustang Diaries Archive on February 18, 2011, 9:49 pm

A week had passed since my last ride. Things were busy, with Curt working on his house projects and me not wanting to distract him. But that day, he said let's ride, so I did. And then I left.Tika had been moved home while I was gone over the weekend, and this time she didn't move back. Once more, she sat. The wind was blowing and there was no way I was going to step into that stirrup and climb on her back when she was snorting and blowing. No way.But today the sun was out, and the air was calm

Such Heaven

GirlsHorseClub.com Blog Archive on February 18, 2011, 2:48 pm

by ddog777, age 13 Such heaven it is to be with you, As we ride over the tide. Cool wind whips my mane into your face, Stinging your cheeks. You laugh as you urge me over the tide. I wear no saddle or bridle, And you no whips or spurs. We ride into the sunset, horse and girl, as a team, as friends, as companions. Such heaven.

The New Journey..........a Trade??.........

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 18, 2011, 2:06 am

The initial series Wrapping Up a Difficult Summer that led to this series.Part OneWhile I certainly had hoped that BG would respond to that last email so I could get more of his perspective for my case, I really didn't expect it. I knew they probably thought they were sitting there with an ace in the hole having those signed papers. I figured it wouldn't be until they learned I was now the one with the ace in the hole that I would hear anything from BG or WF. I suspect had the papers transferred

New Absorbine Products

Equine Mine Archive on February 17, 2011, 10:11 pm

I got a really nice surprise in the mail from Absorbine. I was contacted through my blog to see if I wanted to try some of their new products. Yes! So they sent 3 things, the new Hooflex Natural Spray, the Hooflex Natural Dressing, and Flex+Max pellets. The one that I am really excited to try is the Natural Spray. It is a new way to apply hoof dressing, now in spray form. What I like about spray is the ingredients; tea tree, arnica, comfrey, and avocado oil. All things to promote healthy hoof growth

The New Journey..........My Response.........

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 17, 2011, 2:08 am

Part OneOnce I had the original papers cancelled, I moved on to responding to BG's last email. It took me a couple of days to write an appropriate response. I was so angry, I needed to take my time so the anger didn't spill over and wreck what I wanted to do. I took a lesson from BG when I did my response. To keep track of what I was answering, I pasted BG's responses in bold into the message portion of the email. I did not include the list of work that BG told me he figured paid for the horse although

The New Journey..........Heading in the Right Direction

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 16, 2011, 2:15 am

Part OneI knew the instant I sent off the email asking BG about the money he still owed me for Storm that whatever dispute BG and WF were having over whose name would appear on the papers would no longer be important. I suspected they would immediately try to negotiate those papers even knowing that the debt had not been fulfilled in my eyes. Instead of trying to resolve any conflict, they would take the easy route sending those papers into the registry so they could keep the horse regardless of

Symposium John Deere des entraîneurs en équitation classique

DressageCoach.ca Archive on February 15, 2011, 3:13 am

Aujourd'hui avait lieu à Beloeil le symposium annuel des entraîneurs en équitation classique. C'étais la première fois que j'y participais et cette journée bien remplie était très instructive. D'abord nous avons eu un résumé de la situation du litige entre Canada Hippique et la Fédération équestre du Québec. Ce conflit qui perdure depuis déjà trop longtemps évolura peut-être bientôt dans le bon sens puisqu'un retour à la médiation est prévu sous peu. J'espère que les deux

The Fork in the Road........... The Worm Turns....

MiKael's Mania - Arabian Horses Archive on February 15, 2011, 12:46 am

Part OneBy this point it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out where this was headed but I wanted it to be perfectly clear what BG meant. I wanted him to admit he was keeping my horse and not doing anymore work for me AND more importantly that we HAD a contract.Now I was thinking of those things I would need if BG really did try to get out of paying for Storm. I very carefully worded my emails to extract all the information from BG that I could get. I was after anything in writing that might
