Haha! Didn't know I had a cousin in ND! Most of my family is in WA. LOL! Real tree camo is AWESOME! We got this real tree wrapping paper in at the store around christmas time, I think I bought around 5 rolls of it! My i-phone case is also real tree. I just 'might' like it!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

Haha,awesome;it's pretty much the whole kit and caboodle! :)
I also am constantly on the lookout for camo gear for my little cousins (lots of hunters and hunters-to-be in my family).We have this sweet little thrift shop in town that gets in alot of really nice kid's stuff,and I often find camo goodies in there.Much cheaper than Bass Pro!

Moving barns only 16 days away... I sure hope Snicks takes this well. But I guess he'll be okay, being the friendly, outgoing horse he is and getting a whole bunch of new horses, inluding youngsters and foals, which he adores, to play with.

How do you feel about the move Saranda? I'm sure Snickers will blend in just fine with the new herd if you think so too :)

Well, I am a bit nervous, I guess. Particularly about stabling him overnight, but it will be only for a month or so, then they go out in 24/7 pastures. Overall, it's a rather good barn, although not fancy, I'll just have to get used to a larger number of boarders (there are 15 of them, not including me and my two friends who are moving with me), compared to the total of 7 in our current barn. I'm not too socially-oriented, you see, and I don't adapt to new environment quickly... But it'll be okay, and I'll take lots of pictures when we move!

You'll do amazing! Would love to see pictures! Finding/moving to a new place (whether for your horse or for you) is always nerve racking.

Take a deep breath! Smell the horses!

I'm totally excited! I am going to get to see my Ruby on Easter weekend! Turns out a family friend from ND wants to go up and see my family over Easter and I get to tag along! I am so excited! I bought her a navy blue halter, lead rope, and feed pail. I already had polo wraps in that color so I figured I'd stay with it. When the time comes I'll go with hunter green for Coyote.

I am planning on getting Ruby an overall check up and preg checked in June when I go up for a week. Is there anything that you would suggest getting checked?
I am planning on hooves (farrier is coming the end of this month), teeth, preg, health, and coggins. She was dewormed at the rescue so I'm not too worried about that right now.
Also if she is preggo, what is the recommended supplements and feed. If she is bred she would be due in October. I'll have to be looking to a blanket and shelter for the foal and her for sure. Ah the fun!

At least you will be with friends Saranda, that is an upside! Plus if you need to vent we are always here at horseforum too. Why exactly are you switching barns again? I don't recall although I know it's in here somewhere...

Sometimes switching barns can be a blessing in disguise. While it doesn't seem like it is going to be fun now, there is always a silver lining. Just look at it with a positive attitude and it won't seem so bad :)

Galloping Guitarist...That is so exciting! If you have horse health questions I recommend posting on that part of the thread as they have more input and usually more experts. However here is what I have to say about feeding pregnant mares: some will be easy keepers and will need just consistent feed that is given in larger quantities. Some mares need supplements depending on their current state of health. It depends on the horse. I had to feed my mare a TON of food because we couldn't keep weight on her during and after pregnancy while she still had the foal on her. So it depends on the mare. But still post on the horse health area and you'll get some more specific answers

Thanks for the support, guys. :) Cowgirl, here's my thread about why I'm moving - Help me make a difficult decision...

It really hurts me to leave the beautiful forests in which the current barn is situated, though. Spent a lot of time today sitting in the snow in a forest meadow and meditating - it was wonderfully sunny and the wind in the pine trees was singing just like the sea.
