Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.

When im at a show i NEVER leave my horse tied up to my trailer unless im with him. if i go to sit down and watch until it is my turn, to go in the arena i take him with me and let him eat grass.

Microchipping only will help to prove ownership, but won't help find a horse. You can't see a microchip from a distance. That's why many people still brand their horses.

It's really scary nowadays when you have to constantly be worried about thieves. I'd be sleeping in my horse's stall with a loaded pistol if he was at a show barn overnight.

That's so absolutely terrifying. I go to a lot of 3 day shows during the summer, and my horse is stalled. While I am still on the premisis with my camper during the night, it terrifies me that someone could just slip him out of his stall without me knowing.

I really believe that big show barns should always have a security camera system.

WOW!! In my mind this has just given me another reason not to show Dana. Like I know not all people are like that but yeah just another reason...mind you a few weeks ago I was stood behind the shed and I saw a white car pull up right next to the fence where Dana stood munching on the grass. Now I dont mind folk checking out my purty girl but I got suss so I grabbed a halter and walked down the paddock towards her, as soon as they saw me they took off like a scalded cat. See I worry coz Dana is so people freindly, even if the people who dropped around the other day to tell me they had rescued her when she got stuck in the fence. Now I beleiev she got stuck in the fence but when they said sshe went galloping off I dont buy that.

I wouldn't go to a rodeo if someone paid me.
