Missy gave me a bit of a scare today. Did chores in the morning,all was well.Left for work a few hours later,and as I was driving down the road that runs beside our property,I just happened to glance over at the pasture that the weanlings are in.There at the far end of the field,was Lena,standing over Missy,who was on her back with her back legs up in the air,not moving! I got turned around,tore back to the farm,and went running out to the pasture.My mom and sister noticed something was up,grabbed some lead ropes and came running as well. As I got closer,I saw that Missy was up against the fence,with three legs tangled in the high tensile wire. She must have tried to roll too close to the fence,or something. Amazingly,despite being on her back with her legs trapped,she had not struggled to get up and was quietly laying there with Lena standing guard. She stayed still and let us work over her;managed to get her legs untangled,then got ropes around a front and back leg,rolled her over,and got her up.She was a little stiff and cold from lying in the snow,but amazingly, no cuts or scrapes from the wire. Thank God I had unhooked that section of fence from the electric fencer a few days ago,I don't even want to think about what would have happened if I hadn't.. I lost what was to be my very first horse a number of years ago after he rolled too close to a high tensile wire fence,got his legs trapped,and literally peeled everything down to the bone.He had to be pts.So,needless to say,my heart dropped when I first saw Missy the way she was,but all ended well in this case. :)

Wow, what a scary situation! I'm so glad that Missy is ok - and what a brave and smart girl she is to handle this situation so well!

I rode today for the first time in a month (I had a concussion and couldn't ride =[ ) And my pony is lame right now, he has an abscess in his RH but thankfully it started to drain today! So I rode my trainer's Friesian/Morgan mix and he was so much fun; it's so nice to finally be in the saddle again =]

What a cute picture! :) Congrats for getting back into the saddle!

I've been playing with the thought of moving to Canada for a while now... It seems utopic, though, as I'm single, with three cats and a horse, my profession not being among the "popular" ones (and caring for horses could still be the only one I'm best at...) and I don't even have an apparent reason to move, as I rather like it here in Latvia. But strangely I have been always fascinated by the mere idea of Canada and I suspect I'd feel at home.

The expenses of moving a horse could be ginormous. O_O

Thank you =]

Do what feels right to you. Sometimes you just get stuck in a rut and it's nice to have new surroundings and start over, you know? I did the same thing a couple years ago, not as drastic but I moved from Detroit to the country, haha. Best thing I ever did.

Ha, maybe I just need to move to the countryside. That's a great thought, by the way. And might be a whole lot easier than the whole immigration process thing. :)

on the other hand, we HAVE an indoor, but we have to share the indoor. Which means riding with some really not nice people who will purposely run into you or get in your way. Tonight I rode with 9 other people
