Thank you, Roany! She is a good one! Not everyday you can spin a hole in the ground or do a barrel pattern then put a kiddo on her and turn her loose with it! I'm pretty proud of all we've accomplished training-wise :)

That's all very well....but you won't beat my mares party piece..... She won't walk in puddles when ridden, but turn her out Ina. Flooded fields and she rolls/lays down in the water. ;)

Omg! Lol, I can just picture her doing so, DD! Josie has been through so much stuff, she'll not refuse anything. Might contemplate it for about 10 seconds and she might be very careful where she puts her feet, but no refusals! She doesn't like swimming though and never lies down in water/mud (she's got to stay clean, ya know ;D) but she'll go in if I ask her to and we'll swim across whatever there is to swim across! She's a dream horse when it comes to bathes as well, she hardly ever rolls!

Haha, na, have to keep my girl! Yours is a monster compared to Josie! I'd probably feel like I was ten feet off the ground!

Since its been mentioned a couple times in the last couple posts... Do you all still dip with Iodine? Everyone I know does, (including my sister with her goats) but I've read that now they recomend using that chlorhexidine solution?? I was thinking I might just go with what I know works... rather than take a chance on the new recomendation. Thoughts??

Also.. Flashy is 200 days! Yay. No pictures yet, but I will be doing the string test this weekend.

I went out to feed today and wrapped my arms around my mare's belly and I felt the baby moving! Today (day 266) has been the first day that I've been able to catch the little booger in action!

I use chlorhexidine on all my animals...and even my own cuts. I don't use anything else really. I can't say about the dipping however; and I wouldn't dare give advice on it especially since I don't breed for a living. But I do believe in and love the stuff!

Hakuna Matata!

When my mare foaled...i used a diluted betadine to dip the umbilical cord in. Straight betadine is harsh and can cause live tissue to become irritated. We didn't have any problems using that mixture.

But...coming from the medical field...chlorahexidine is a better cleaning agent and easier on the tissues.

We use the chlorhexidine now. I just call it "dip in iodine" because I can never remember what chlorhexidine is called and you get the picture xD
