      My yearling I showed unclipped for 2 shows was looking distinctly wooly and had to be clipped for this weekends show. Seems like a bad sign ...

  8. Went down to CA to spend a last weekend with my grandma, ended up holding her hand as she passed. Wow.

      My deepest sympathies for your loss. It is my hope, that in your deepest sorrow, you are able to find comfort by remembering those things about your grandmother which made her so special to you.

      I read your post regarding what age is a horse "mature." You said that you had done some work with a horse that was bottom of the herd. I have a rescued Arabian (previous neglect case) and its sad because he lets the goats push him around for food, despite their small size. I would love to know what "games" and activities you did with him to make him more confident. Thanks

  9. You know you're doing something right with your training when your colt gets tired of waiting and hands his bridle to you!

  10. I'd say your vet isn't too familiar with the condition. It's definitely unusual for her to be better in the stall, I wonder is she warmer there? I ask only because when my gelding who had it was cold he'd hunch up and rotate his stifles outward which just made the problem worse. When working in harness or enjoying a warm day he'd stand straighter and wouldn't have as many problems. Just a thought! Also, many horses who lock are worse after heavy exercise as it causes inflammation and pain and they will lock up terribly the next day. You want to introduce them to the work slowly and in small doses and build them up with a few more poles each day/a few minutes longer going in that straight line and let them adapt. Anti-inflammatories can sometimes help with that worsening if it's unavoidable. Leia
  11. Is so enjoying this sunshine (finally!!) and her furkids.

  12. Is suddenly nervous about our first show this weekend. Wish us luck!

      Yes Leia I she was bred one time on June 13th. Hard to believe I know. I am now very nervous praying all goes well. Good luck at the show.

      Wishing you luck!

  13. Clipping has begun! Tonight I get to see how my colt has matured. Fingers crossed!

    1. Mominis
