thanks for the warm welcome "everyone " unfortunately I am on a smart-dumb phone with windows 8 operating system and won't let me download any pictures :( I have a circle Y saddle and love it, believe it or not bought off eBay from lady in Co. She even allowed me to try it on first and return if need be, talk about great customer service, I payed $600 for it worth every penny. Also bought some fancy tack, headstall that looks Indian,perfect for my paint and reigns to match, now I need a breast collar, hoping I can come close to match, wish I remembered store name to share, will try and find my receipt. My horse is a 8 yr old mare tobiano American paint named Savannah, my next purchase is a black/white paint gelding, I want to name him Tonto ya know opposite of tonto's horse being named Scout, thought opposite color and opposite name would be unique. We are having bad wildfires here so not healthy for riding for a bit. Unfortunately my horse is boarded out in that direction until I buy some land in near future so has been difficult to try and get out and see her :( can't wait to see her and continue my ground work. Happy and safe riding to all that can. Enjoy your afternoon. If anyone else is here in AZ, please feel free to share in private message.

Hi all! Just a quick peek in as I wait for my water to boil. Making rigatoni for my nephews grad party tomorrow.

Got up early to ride. We did ride, but when I put JayJay into a trot, I noticed a bit of a limp. So we continued on in a walk. We rode a few miles at least. When we got home and stopped.....he was favoring his right front leg.....

He was fine last night..so of course I am beside myself.....a couple things are going thru my mind.....

*hes out of shape, and we've over done it riding the past four days.

*worst case...I bought a lame horse! truth be told, when I looked at him that day I bought him, he wasn't standing totally underneath himself, but his toes were long, and thot that could be the reason. Did everything in my power to test for lameness...nothing showed. That being said....had the vet check him, and she said he appeared sound, even checked for navicular.

*the vet thought he's toes looked long, which I agree, so that may be the issue....

I'm just really beside myself right now....not knowing,,,,I hate NOT KNOWING what the issue is. My farrier wasn't in this morning, or I would have had him look at him.

There isn't any puffiness anywhere in his legs, he just doesn't want to put total weight on it, so he stretches it out in front of him....which makes me wonder if it isnt the angle of his feet. Yet....there are times you look out, and he has total weight. So I am perplexed...and worried, one I made a bad purchase (which even if he is lame....he is such a wonderful guy, it can't be a bad purchase ) but did I get snookered? I know I lament over everything...ugh! You would hate to live in my head right now!! Lol

He was fine last night on my summer solstice ride. We walked, trotted and cantered a bit down the rode. He was fine! This morning when I arrived, he was laying down enjoying the cool morning. When he got up, I did notice he was a bit still...but aren't we all after something new?

Can please someone put my mind at ease...even if you are lieing? Hahahah

The beat of my heart will always resemble the cadence of my horse.

Here's a hint for posting off a fartphone download the photobucket app and use it to link pictures ... That's how I do it... You can copy the picture link and then post to the thread.
Your tack sounds great..

Nicker could it be a stone bruise? Or a stone ? Doc had a stone the other day and looked totally lame until we found it now he is perfect again. Or He could just be tender good luck and I pray it's nothing serious...

welcome to the newbies.

Rick trailer looks great!!!

My daughter was on evacuation notice with the floods but will be OK now. Poor thing no one wants to be her roomie anymore as she has had fire and almost flood in the last 6 weeks. Unfortunately my cousins sons house flooded in High river and her daughters husbands mom and dads did as well and there brand new car was under 6 feet of water. The worst is you can't get flood insurance there so a lot of people are going to have a really hard time. The whole town of High River flooded as well as Bragg Creek and many people lost their homes.

Rick I have not decided on which product to use and I need to talk hubby into letting me spend the $$ to do it.

What's wrong with these guys they should be happy we are asking for saddles and roll on bed liner instead of diamonds and pearls

He's having my son and a couple neighbor boys help put the hay in the loft, I'm so happy about that now I can keep working on my project.

NM, I am sorry to hear this about JJ. I feel like he will be fine. Have his feet done and go from there! Maybe he just had too much to drink while toasting Summer Solstice, lol. *Hoping to lighten the mood with that, not make fun.

Hang in there!

NM71, I know it may sound like a dumb question , but will be my first every time. Do you pick his feet before and after every ride? Next question is was there any stumble at all during the ride last night?

I am with Lori and think it could be stone bruise, something wedged in the frog... Hopefully a little trim fixes him right up.

Glad to see you back ,Sandra. Hope you and SAvannah stay safe from the fires.

Will be leaving work shortly to go home and clean up so I can drive out to the beach for my cousin's wedding. She is a beautiful young lady and I can only imagine it to be a beautiful wedding.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. I'm hoping to catch up with the people where my dually is tomorrow after church and get some work done on it. I initially was under the impression he was going to fix it and me pay him. Now it seems I will be helping him fix it or doing it myself.
