So then I went to a different tack shop and right away the staff found one that fits me perfectly and is really nice.. now I just need to somehow sell/get refunded for that giftcard!
wow that's stupid..

Yeah, and I was going to come home to send the company a e-mail about it but guess what? They don't even have a "contact us" section on their website...

But your story is nice! I love having that connection with a horse.

thanks! I luv it too!

quick question for anyone who wants to answer it: does your horse swing their head back at you when you are buckling/unbuckling the blanket or doing up the girth/cinch? I've been working on that with Cheyenne, but I'm wondering why she does it. She doesn't have back problems, and she doesn't bite, she just swings back. Everytime she starts to do it I push her head away and push it and push it and push it until she stops and when she does stop I do it up and reward her, but why does she do that??

Hmm, Flash sometimes looks at me while I'm fiddling with his blankets but not always.

A lot of times that can indicate stomach ulcers.

My horses don't have blankets. But they have a shelter. It's pretty warm to if you snuggle with someone...

haha! :)

Sunny- her owner got her checked out for anything that could do that and nothing came up. We're starting to think that it's just a bad habit of hers. I'm doing my best to break it, and I've been making progress, her owner is getting impressed. I'm the only one who takes her out so I'm the only one who really notices anymore, but it's still happening.

We finally had a decent day to ride today and I went out to the barn and my horse has an abscess! I should be glad that it was shallow and I was able to reach it easily and pop it, so he is not limping as bad and does not look quite so pitiful. It was cold this morning, so I think he actually enjoyed the warm epsom soak.

I ordered Sunny new boots and a saddle pad today. I got both on sale, but still spent $50. -sigh-

I hope the boots fit!
