  1. Hi Cynthia! God I miss my little Libby...Hug her for me Jilll too but at least I get to see her from time to time. Anyway, you ought to get up wiht Andrea and come with her when she comes in March (not sure when you are lambing though?) Anyway, you are welcome anytime....would love to see Libby...make sure she wears her booties in all that awful canadian snow...! Laurae (sp?) The only time I would regret a placement (and would revoke it for that matter) was if someone was not being kind to my dog..I can take mistakes on the part of the handler but not if they were being nasty to or about the dogs. Not all are created equal and they all have their faults and not all handlers are created equal but I want it to be a happy learning environment for all concerned..I dont care if they ever win any ribbons or complete a course, just that all are having fun. Anyway, glad you got it worked out with your friend...
  2. Hi Julie, You are one of my favorite success stories! I have placed many of my older dogs with friends/students and it gives me the greatest pleasure in the world to watch a dog I trained go on to help someone else learn about trialing. To the person that originally asked the question, I personally always placed dogs with the stipulations that julie mentioned ie home for life, in the house, spare no expense for vet care and I know all the ppl I place with quite well...(it has worked out great with one notable exception, and even that ended up ok) Same holds true for most of the dogs I sell/sold...quite a few I sell with buy back rights so I can make sure I know where they end up... Anyway, just had to chime in to Thank Julie once again for taking care of my Jill girl...! Sam Furman Front Runner Border Collies Tucker, Fred, Tak and Kat
  3. Well I will let the lady I take lessons with see the video tomorrow...see what she says about him.. I would love for you to come and ride!!! I just put in a new ring, the footing is coming tomorrow and I will get some jumps picked up this week...I also want to set up some cross country jumps around the outside edge of the field. Anyway, just let me know, it would be fun!
  4. Oh Melainie, that is my beautiful girl!!!! Baby tuck! Heya Debbie, Yeah think that is Edgeworth weekend possibly?? I did go and ride that horse, made my mouth water...he was awsome, nice that they finally told me he had had colic surgery two years before, I RAN out of the barn and have been crying ever since.. No bargains in horses, wondered why a horse with his experience was so cheap.
  5. I didnt breed her but Tucker sure did! Poor Tak, was back at the vet today, great progress report..I called them frantic last night because he went back to three legs when the splint came off yesterday, well the bugger wasnt even limping when I took him in today, I was tempted to kick him in the leg so I wouldnt look like an idiot. Anyway, Tak is just pacing himself...He wants to stop being a broken "box" and become a "star.".. I just got the sales slip, I got 1.45 a lbs...65-70 lb lambs. Got a fair deal on shipping too. I still have about 50 lambs left and 130 ewes so no worries, Nap and Spot Glenn will have plenty of fun! Off to Berryville tomorrow to look at another horse, when you come we can trail ride, there is a state park about 5 miles from my house...if you come it time, we could go foxhunting!
  6. All my darned dogs are in Canada, Libby and Buff look great...I miss them both! Libby looks pretty darned Furry, must be all the good Canada air.... Miss you girl, still on for our Spring fling, will give you a call...gonna go look at another horse on Friday if you can believe it..got my lamb money to play with! Got GOOD money for the ones I sent this year, yipee! Hey Terry, how have you been???? Long time no hear!
  7. Many Hats off to Dean and STAR! I am so proud of you both!!! Wish I could have been there to root you on in person, but gotta stay home and take care of Brother Tak... Hugs to you both! Sam and Tuck
  8. Hello...when were you gonna spill on all this??? Nice tail btw!!!! He looks awsome!!! I cant believe I missed this, guess I better start checking more regular eh? He will be a fun project for our spring lambing fling, I can hardly wait. Have fun in the Orkneys..go Luke!
  9. Good bye Uncle Stu, I will miss you....my best to Rainey, Gordon, Jessica and Stu's other children, family and friends..he will be greatly missed. Sam Furman
  10. Gosh I just saw this!!! Definately missing, a picture of him scaling the camper table...an acutal action shot!!! Pssst...Miss Cynthia...how is Libby...?
  11. I guess we are horribly off topic here.. but what sort of riding do you do? Sounds like you know your stuff! my email is [email protected] in case you want to write back privately..
  12. Pax he is an 8 yr old warmblood gelding, he has been foxhunted and is ready for prelim level eventing ( I most certainly am NOT!) Just geting back into riding after about 20 yrs..I am looking to start eventing this fall (hopefully!) Thank you, I am working very hard at keeping him in a nice round frame, he is a lot of horse to put together....but he can look amazing when someone is on him that knows what they are doing. Mark, Not yet, Tommy was joking that he would be getting off his new little horse to get all the gates and I would simply be jumping them all...I also mentioned something about him getting down on bended knee so I could use him for a mounting block to get on my bloody big horse. There may have been a day that I could have got on him from the ground, but that day is not now. AT 16.2 he is large and in charge.
  13. Cowboy TW? Call me stupid (and I am sure you will!) but I dont get it??? Thanks Denise, I am really loving the whole horse thing again and AJ is a reall sweetie pie.
  14. I snorted, I actually did...Sullen modern day Virginians indeed...You are a riot! yes, pax I bought the horse... one new saddle $1500.00 One new bridle $350.00 horse insurance 500.00 Getting to have my midlife crisis going mach one over a cross country fence with my arms wraped around his beautiful neck, no feet in the stirrups screaming oh [email protected]! while my riding instuctor calmly says keep your heels down and your eyes up...PRICELESS!!!!!
  15. Spot Glen, thats cute! Glad you made it home OK and took that white crap with you..it was the only snow I got this year thank you very much...The count is now up to 120 only 5 ewes left to go...Back to the barn to stare at my horse, call ya later this week!
  16. Heya Cynthia!!! Come on down..Andrea is coming for her spring lambing break, why dont you hitch a ride? Some days we dont even work dogs, just read books, drink wine and whine! Keep my girl warm now, I shiver at the idea of her in all that white stuff...her poor little paws might get chapped!
  17. I dont want to come work with you..no way...uh uh, not gonna happen..My god that looks like..shiver..egads, it is...SNOW!
  18. My husband was working 6 days a week for quite awhile and had a 1 hour and 15 min drive one way.(on top of a twelve hour shift) ..it really did/does wear on him..Now he works local 3 days a week and only two days a week in town...he generally stays overnite so he only has to do the drive twice vs 4 times. I guess it is all where your priorities lie..we couldnt aford a farm like we have in town so he does the drive two days a week...it is much much better now so really think long and hard..it is a pretty big deal or at least it was for us/him.
  19. For my dogs, I like Frankie goes to Hollywood.."Relax" (dont do it!)
  20. Shay McMullen ran his dog at the Nursery finals and he found him in a ditch..you could ask him what he had to do...
  21. What was that Nancy OberneighNeigh??? I cant hear youuuuuuu.... Did you get a lump of coal in your stocking? I can only imagine! Bill, I know what has happened to your points, they gave them to Nancy O, who doesnt need them anyway (I mean really did you see ALL THOSE POINTS???)..a conspiracy to be sure...! The nerve of that Neigh Neigh anyway!
  22. Ooopes had to edit my profile, my friend gave me a plaque with this saying on it...definately words to live by!
  23. Yawn, hey there boy, that the best ye got?? Bad when miss Canada out does you.....Snifffff :)BORING.... Oh go stick it..in your stocking...and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS!
