My car needs new wheel bearings which is a minor fix, but Hubby is away on a business trip and obviously can't replace them until he gets back. While I supposed I could drive it, the horrible grinding and weaving it does makes that seem like not such a good idea.
I have this great truck, remember? Only the fucking truck has decided, LOL I won't hold a charge. The battery charger makes no difference. Could I back my car up to it and jump it off of there? Probably, but the fucking car can't make it the rest of the way up our hilly fucking driveway to get to it.
Basically, woe is me. I am stuck home alone until I get so ferociously pissed that I just jump start the truck with my fury.

By now you're probably thinking, "So...the title of this post has to do with you growing up and fixing your vehicles yourself?"
No. It doesn't. My rant has nothing to do with the blog title. We're moving on from that bullshit.
Instead, it's time for random blog filler because nothing else is going on! Yay!

i just let him stand there and stare at the mares for awhile.
My survey-free, I-won't-be-making-a-graph-this-time-fuck-yeah question of the day is: At what point do you consider your horse--or really any horse--to no longer be considered a "baby" or "green"?
I'm curious to know how each of you qualify that. For instance, Bobby still has loads and loads to learn. He's not a schoolmaster in any sense of the word. But I wouldn't remotely call him green any longer either. He's being trained for things he doesn't know, but to me, a green horse is one that is still new to the basics--w/t/c, jumping, barrels, trails, or whatever you're working towards. I think once that horse has mastered the fundamentals, it's just in training.
And personally, I don't like the "(S)he's still green, so...you know." excuse when the horse is just being an asshole. (Someone at my barn? Nooooo....)
Agree? Disagree? I'm sure someone can hash out their thoughts better than I can.
