ya im going to call them, I got all the ladies info. I want to see if they will pay to fix up my car as its a little banged up, luckily no serious damage though.

Oh gypsy I hope your insurance covers you!

Pretty sure I want a second horse now after a second one has been at home for me to work. But NO I can't. :/

My rug came today!

Two horses is a lot.

Especially with summer coming and people predicting a drought-y one.

I know! And god I hope they arent predicting another drought!! :(

But if everything works out and I end up moving into the house where nyx is kept I will have 100 acres to play with. So not untill then I wont think of another horse. :) and maybe buy a roundyard and get a little private agistment happening.

If there is one thing I learned from all my car accidents, if it's not your fault go to the doctor immediately. And make sure you have a police report and call your insurance company immediately.

There are so many people that do not understand the amount of damage being rearended at only 5mph will do to your car. With today's car there is practically no such thing as a fender bender. My back bumper would cost at least $800 to replace, too many sensors, cracked or smashed it's the same outcome.

I will never deny an ambulance ever again. And never tell a doctor you are feeling better. It will bite you in the end.

^^ yerp... at least the insurance part...first person I called after I got hit was my mom. She's a name holder on my insurance so she got it all started, and as soon as I got the report from the cop I was still on the phone with her so I gave her the report number.....

Of course...i can't get my car fixed till next saturday...and I didnt go to the ACC (ER on post) which is my bad but all theyll do is give me quarters haha

I was in an accident a few years back a car rear ended me doing about 40km/h and it completely wrote off my car.

I was in a bit of shock and went home with a headache. Anyway my mother contacted a solicitor in order to see if we could sue for the value of the car and the woman told me to go to the doctor immediately. She said, later, that whenever you have an accident you should always go to the doctor as soon as possible. Not just to get checked out but also to leave a paper trail of your injuries in case you ever need it.

I ended up getting a little money, more than the car was worth but most of it was for medical/trauma sort of thing.

So the thing is always go to the doctor after an accident.

Hope you're feeling a bit better, Gypsy - and, yep, go to the docs and get everything documented for future reference.

Agh, I've put ads up for Brock on 5 major websites (4 of them specialising in horses) and so far nothing except one random scammer. I know I'm being impatient and it's only been a few days but there have been around 250 views in total on the ads and not one has even emailed asking for more info. Just gotta be patient, I know, but...bah.

I'm not in a huge hurry to sell him but it's almost a bit upsetting that no one's shown interest lol. He's certainly better than most of the other horses in coastal NSW being advertised for his money. $2,200 barely gets you a funky looking direct-off-the-track TB over this way. Saw an unbroken 4yo TB going for not much less - I mean, Brock has a decent level of education under saddle, he's just not a horse for beginners or people new to handling/ownership. And he's shinier than any of the other horses, so nyah

Selling a horse is tricky.

Oh and I am moving house! Excited... hope it works, a bit apprehensive.
