Sometimes we run an electrified high tensile wire on the posts with our barbed wire. It cures fence pushers. We mainly did it because of a couple fence crawling cows. But it works for the horses too.

Thanks everyone for your input. It is appreciated. Now, I just have to hope that we can get an approved offer on the house, and get ours sold in town. I'll be sure and let you all know once everything is done and get some pictures of Melzy in her new pasture.

Well Lizzy came up with a swollen, very hot and sore to the touch tendon yesterday. She got bute and it was wrapped. Soonest vet could come out is today at noon without an emergency call. She was just very slightly off last night when I got to her. Thought right now is either a torn tendon or the tendon sheath. No matter what our riding season is pretty much over. She's 20 so anything will be a long healing process. Just hoping it's not a torn tendon...

Oh no, that's just terrible. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a quick recovery. And hopefully you can find a horse to "borrow" once in a while so that you don't have to go all season without riding.

Thank you. I'm hoping I will still be able to ride as well, at least someone's horse. I think I'm going to invest in those Back on Track wraps. I have heard lots of good things about them.

Sorry to hear dear!^^ I hope everything works out for you!

Sooo news with me...
I got a chance to drive the 1.5 hours to see my new critter the other day(granny has had her a few years but does absolutely nothing with her, pasture puff)! She has filled out so much since last I saw her. I never noticed before that she is slightly buckkneyed :( . Next time I go up Ill have to get pics to post for sure! I havent come up with a name yet, Granny calls her Magic, but as I have already had a Magic and it doesnt fit her anyway I will have to find something new.

I have barely any info on her and its killing me! Granny got her right as I was moving so I've had no time to mess with her. As of now all I know is she is a Brown breeding stock paint, 15hh, papered, super sweet and inquisitive. Thats it! Its like having a present you can't unwrap! I can't wait until I can find a place to board around here (or we buy a place with some land**fingers crossed** as weve been talking about). DH is extremely supportive of my passion *lucky girl here!

Im so excited! And impatient!

Hope it's not a torn tendon with Lizzy, Poppy!! Just coming into the warmer months too :( Hope she recovers quickly.

Very exciting, Honeysuga - keep us updated (and pics of course!!).

I haven't been on this thread in aaaaages. Brock's new almost-owner gave me a really wonderful gift about a month ago - she commissioned an equine artist to do a portrait of him and me from one of the old photos I had (the one in my profile pic here, but the whole thing). It's framed and in my office now - so nice to be able to see him every day.

I'm going up to see him end of next week - we're going to go trail riding and switch horses halfway through. I've never ridden her other fellow, Benji - he's a huge 16.3hh TB and lovely but a bit hot, so it should be...fun! LOL! I love a big horse, so I'm sure I'll have heaps of fun.

In other news, my partner accidentally let slip that he's planning on getting me a horse for next Christmas. I was like :O I really didn't expect that. It'll probably be a TB, all he's told me that it's really beautiful (I think he knows which one it is, he has connections in racing because he used to work in it) but I don't even know if it's a mare or gelding. Maybe now he's spoiled the surprise (he was really dirty with himself for that) he won't get it for me so I'm not going to "expect" it as such. But I can't stop thinking about it lol. Must stop or I could just be disappointed. ARGH!

So exciting, Evil! Now I can't wait to know some more tidbits of information about your new horse! :)

Poppy, fingers crossed for Lizzy. I hope she heals well and as fast as possible.

Got a call a few days ago from the BO that Snickers has wounded his right shoulder and foreleg, and is limping. Went out to see him - the wound were really superficial, just his coat bruised off on a couple of patches - judging by their looks and placement, it seems that some other horse has pushed and pressed him into the wall when the horses leave the barn after their evening meal. His upper leg was a bit hot and swollen, and he was limping lightly at trot, so I gave him homeopathic medication and a couple of days off. Today, he was much, much better already so I hope we will be able to get back to riding soon. :)

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
