Hi All TFDers

I'm not sure if the red word is a Texas term...so I wanted to get some defs, starting with you TFD Texans out there, and all my friends elsewhere!

After a couple of seconds, he said, “I’m going to ride the horses again today. Would you like to come along? Debbie Sue says those two horses are kind of buddied up. It’ll help me if someone else rides the other one.”

“Buddied up?”

“That’s a horse term Debbie Sue used. When horses spend all of their time together, they don’t want to be separated. The one that gets left behind gets upset. It’s kind of like being barn-sour.”

Thought I'd share a bit of humor on this Friday...Have a blessed weekend my TFDFF's

(BTW I'm a bit of a cowboy myself in my 99' Grand Cherokkee LTD, with a 350 HORSE powered V8 engine...in NYC "and that's all she wrote") Brick wall

Barn and Buddy Sour… aka Separation Anxiety. First, to clearly define what we are discussing, barn sour refers to a horse that wants to stay at the barn or that wants to rush back. Buddy sour refers to a horse who has become very attached to another horse.

It makes sense. I used to have a horse that I called "home-bound" because she never wanted to leave either. I had to make her walk away from the house, but if I ever turned back in that direction, she wanted to take off running to get back.

The do sometimes bond with another horse and don't want to be separated from them. Both of those problems come from not taking them out enough and separating them often enough, I think. But with busy lives, and vehicles, we don't ride like we used to in the old days. My son has a horse now, but she's just a pet. He and the kids don't even ride her.

Btw, what the heck do you do with 350 horsepower in New York city??!! Is there any place you can actually open it up and enjoy that power? That's probably a stupid question, as I've never been there and don't know what I'm talking about.

Gary98 thank you for your response, also, and I will peruse the post of Dec 16, and report back.
and...
Actually FounDit, it wasn't such a stupid question...and I always enjoy your threads & posts.

My husband gifted me the Jeep GC LTD on our 30th Wedding Anniversary...total surprise!

He wanted me to have an all-terrain vehicle, with all the bells & whistles; 10CD changer, sunroof, leather interior, dual air-control, heated seats, steel plate under the truck for Appalachian Trail camping, V8 engine, great on mileage, etc...He knew I had a passion for trucks, particularly the Jeep GC LTD...of course he didn't bank that I would "actually open it up and enjoy that power", he was suspicious that I would...and Yikes I did!

"Rocky" is on her 2nd engine (by 2009 I'd clocked 287,000 miles—on the second,150,000 miles thus far, I still use it for work/fun/travel). With a sense of foreboding, my mechanic insisted I get an engine that had 60,000 mlles, although "Rocky" stilled purred like a kitten...it was the best advice!

Sadly, my husband transitioned 6 years ago, at 84 ..."Rocky" is still going strong...getting older (like her owner), and still beautiful...(the car anyway!)...Although I would rather enjoy a real horse (my 14yr old grandson would be thrilled!)...you and your family are blessed to have one...

I enjoy every day to the fullest...we are not promised tomorrow.

Be blessed...hedy

hedy,

Not too sure about being "blessed" to have a horse. I rather agree with Ian Fleming about a horse.

Quote:

"A horse is dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle."

Ian Fleming

Still, they are interesting animals, though I never quite trust them. Probably caused by early experiences and not enough time with them. I prefer cattle, goats, ducks, geese, chickens, pea fowl, guinea fowl, dogs and cats, of which we have a bunch. The granddaughters have rabbits and pigs they show at FFA. I live in a rural area with a bit of land. I'm one of the "deplorables"...heh, heh, heh.

FounDit I have a quote for you by Winston Churchill;

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."


Ian Fleming (too busy writing his James Bond stuff) was probably never on a horse...or he would've known better!d'oh!

Yes, sadly, my friend ozok...I am well aware. The Yonkers Raceway/Empire State Casino is only 20 min from my house (14 miles from Times Square) and I never did or ever will, go there!

The good news is that MGM in CA has purchased it for $850 million and is not saying what it's doing with the property till January's closing...I pray that it has nothing to do with horse racing or gambling, for that matter.
