Sorting activerecord returned timestamps

So i have and object with an attribute that contains a bunch more
attributes.
i would like to sort the schedules by the sched_timestart field which is
a datetime stamp

user-
          ---name
          >
          ---schedules
                                 >---- sched_timestart
                                 >---- sched_timestart
                                 >---- sched_timestart
                                 >---- sched_timestart
                                 >---- sched_timestart
                                 >---- sched_timestart
user-
          ---name
          >
          ---schedules

So i have and object with an attribute that contains a bunch more
attributes.

do you mean a many-to-many relation? I.e:

class User < AR::Base
   has_many :schedules
end

if so, heres how you order:

class User < AR::Base
   has_many :schedules, :order => 'shed_timestart ASC'
end

ASC can be replaced by DESC. ASC is ascending (biggest at top,
smallest at bottom), DESC is descending.

you are a geeeeeennnniiiiiuuusss... i've just been going the wrong
direction.
