    Before and After pictures

    Here are some pictures of my guys before I brought them home, right after we go home, and now. What do you think of their progress so far? I know their feet are way better than they were, and are losing a little bit of that weight. Can you recommend anything else for me to do or are they...

    Poisonous plants

    I turned my horses out to graze at my mom's for the night in her lot. Mom was saying there was johnson grass over there. I thought I remembered reading that it was poisonous to horses. I know it is at certain times of the year to cattle. Anyway, they only had a couple of small bites before...

    My first clip and Millie's first clip as well

    I finally got to try out my new clippers. I have never clipped a horse or anything before. Millie at first did not like the water hose. She will learn though. She did amazingly well for the clip I thought. She would not let me do her face/head by the time I got to it. Oh well, it wasn't...

    Swimming pools and your Children

    I went to pick up my daughter yesterday from my ex sisterinlaws house. Hollee was in the swimming pool and had floaties on. This was all she had on for any flotation device. We all know these are not that trustworthy. The pool is about 4 foot deep to my estimation. No way could HOllee touch...

    Measuring stick

    How do I correctly use my mini measuring stick. It is the aluminum one with the level. Do I read at the top bar or below the bar? I know where to place it, but I am not sure I am reading it right. Thanks.

I have learned recently through the photo forum that a lot of people have been...
