Cool ~ Horses are complicated...

Just as a warning, I wont be able to separate this into several paragraphs because Im using my cell phone. Anyway, here goes... I am going to my first interschools competition tomorrow, and I was meant to take Night Heat for the show jumping, but she got an abcess on her leg. I was then going take Silver Saber, but last week she sliced up her hind legs with wire. So now Im stuck with a small 13.2 hands high grey pony called Damper that looks half donkey.... But at least she can jump, probably better than Night Heat. LOL. I feel much better now letting that all out... What do you all think?

Oh man I used to have that kind of luck anytime I said the "Show" word in front of my horse I feel like he would purposefully go lame. That was one entire year we had where I had to keep borrowing my friend's old GP horse to take to shows so I wouldn't lose my money lol.

Now I just spell the word. He doesn't seem to know how to spell. ;) Best of luck btw.

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

Best of luck!! take pics for us! I've been pretty lucky in that nothing has really happened. I had to drop out of the Fair the day of because when I walked D out of his stall and he was crying bloody murder! I swear this horse was on three legs. Call the vet out and he couldn't find anything so gave him some beaut(SP) and behold the next day perfectly fine . I did however have a mare that was 'lame' everytime I had a halter but when her friends came around "Oh i feel better now bye!" gallope off! Brat
