I'm not a big fan of ANY of the commercialized guys, PP and CA are both rough on a horse for no good reason,
funny you mention that. one of things my friend said is that ca isn't all soft like parelli. that he'll give a horse discipline if he needs it. i said, parelli isn't that big a softy. i have seen clips on youtube where parelli was tough on a horse and upset many people in the audience. she was surprised.
and it's funny you point out the expensive patience pole. i remember someone, maybe florida horseman, did a post about that. i didn't realize it was this guy. LOL.
but, yeah, crazy prices for alot of stuff. though i went through the online store and saw some small items that were reasonably priced, so, i might actually buy a couple wee things.
i am going to try to get to a tack and feed store in the kent area if i can. i do need some more grain and i always like to browse. there's a place called reber ranch that looks worth a peek.
i am taking the big F350 though, just in case i find something really good to buy (joke).
actually, i suggested taking it just cuz it's really nice and i thought us girls should go in style.. we were going in my friends wee tiny car (cheap on gas), but, there's 4 of us and i thought it would be tight with 4 people and luggage. i mean what if i do want to buy a few things? not much more than a paperback could be added in this tiny hatchback i don't think.
but, to be fair, i did have to say i would pay for the difference in gas. quite a difference to be sure. but, i'm spoiled. i'm used to having lots of room when we go for a road trip. and a/c and cd player and satellite radio and seats that heat (it's cold and rainy today) and a beeper when i back up and god knows what else. it's my dh's truck. i just have a wee car too.
anyway, i have been working my butt off. paperwork. i'm sure my brain is starting to shutdown. i proofread a $380 invoice the other day and it was sent back today to double check. i had approved and forwarded it for $3.80...LOL. so glad they were honest and caught that. obviously, i need a weekend totally away big time!
so, horse crazy girls gone wild!!! here we go
