hunterseat df: Hunter Seat Equitation is a division that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider. The riders can be judged both over fences and on the flat.

Although true, hunters DO eat, at least the skilled ones do, my name derives from the world of horses.

And because the word hunter is in my name, people automatically think I'm a guy. Not even close.

Whenever I meet someone named Hunter I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying "That's my name, too!"

Back Problems

Posted 07-14-2022 at 07:00 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

How is it that my life is full of back problems?

I learned a bit too late to protect my back from bad choices. But I know now I need to keep my weight healthy and my back muscles toned to support my spine. The alternative is an extremely painful bulging disc.

HOWEVER I have 3 other living beings in my household ALL with back issues.

Dog 1: (11#) She is built long and low, think Jack Russell, though DNA testing revealed 0% JRT in her. The term "bendy"...

Dusk at the Homestead

Posted 06-29-2022 at 07:35 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

The light is fading fast. Still light enough to see the place but dark enough for the lightning bugs to make their presence known.

A friend asked me if I had set up bird feeders to bird watch. These are wild and wonderful birds. I watch them all the time without having to set out food. They're everywhere. Red ones, blue ones, yellow ones. Ornery mockingbirds that live up to their names as they peck at the apples in the ancient tree. Owls asking "who cooks for you", though...

2. The Homestead

Posted 06-17-2022 at 07:22 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

Interesting house. 1906, built like a pole barn with walls and floor added after. No foundation. The floor needs replacing, joists are shot. So people ask "how's the foundation?" Funny you should ask. I guess the word Non-existant would suffice.

But I have a very encouraging contractor friend who is giving me some great ideas.

Did I mention walls? Hoo boy. They're 2 layers of horizontal boards sandwiching a layer of vertical boards. No framing. No...

1. The Homestead

Posted 06-07-2022 at 01:13 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

The trip here was thankfully uneventful. We had a couple of thunderstorms which drove us into hotel rooms rather than weathering the storm in the teardrop camper. One dog is terrified of thunder (fireworks and gunshot, too).

I've been here 3 weeks. It was sight unseen but I absolutely love the property. 66 acres of mostly forest with about 6 acres of pasture that needs brush-hogging. Long neglected due to the passing of previous owners. HOWEVER a guardian angel has been keeping the...

18. Loooong Strange Trip

Posted 05-13-2022 at 03:14 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

Strange sighting yesterday in Missouri: Uranus Fudge Factory - The best fudge comes from Uranus

Really?

I decided to take my last 3 planned days, add the drive time, divide by 2 and get there a day early.

Also, with record highs in the 90s, the desire to sleep in an unairconditioned teardrop camper with 100 pounds of pets is not appealing to any of us. Plus I desperately needed a shower. Got a room.

I expect to be at my place tomorrow. ...
