You are so kind, MV, thank you. Strangly enough, some friends are here from Texas. Her Haflinger had a tumor come up on his hind leg, they pulled a biopsy, and as soon as they did, it blew up. She put him down before the biopsy results came back.

When I get back, I am going to use the bloodroot, and if it does not work immediately, I will put him down.

I am so sorry Greentree. I hate that this is happening to you.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I hope that things will work out ok and that you can carry on driveing him.
My thoughts are the same as taffy clayton.
I have a frend here she has a flea bitten gray arab her name is cleo and she is 20 years old.
She was upset the other night and I left the horse forum and headed on over and cleo was very lame.
I think in my hart that cleo has had her time I don't like to say this but think its kind to do so.
She is going to have the vet out again and I have some bute for her.

This is what I have been doing for the past week.... Driving around Kentucy Horse Park. We had a GREAT time!! About 12 driving friends from Texas came up, so we sat around a campfire in a large group every evening.

The KHP was much quieter this year than last. We still had the Kentucky Mountain Horses, and the Dressage people, who called and complained daily that our carriages were spooking their horses. We were ON THE ROAD......they were in a warm-up ring. No Pasos, no Saddlebreds.

Love it!! So glad you had a great time, next year I am going.

How is your horse with the tumor doing?

Thanks for sharing the pic! If all goes well I will be there next year - even if it is just for Friday - Sunday. Our minis should be ready by then and it should be a great experience for all of us.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Tc, the bump did not grow at all while I was gone, and I am starting to think doing nothing is the best course. If I make this thing mad, then I have to put him down. I will NOT amputate his tail.

I met an aquaitance of yours at ND. She drives a Fox Trotter.

How did your friend do at her dressage show?

My friend's horse did great!
She won both of her freestyle classes, qualifying her for the regionals next year, and she got sixth in her third level dressage test in the regional show. She didn't qualify for the nationals this year by .5 point. But she did find out that places 1-5 were won by 4th level horses that dropped down to third level for this show.
All in all they were pleased. Her trainer and two of the trainers horses qualified to go to the nationals in KY.

I hope my friend, (initials L.S., I think) Spoke highly of me.

I am with you keeping a low intervention on the tail is a good idea.
