Horse went lame and could not find the problem. So stop worring Its bound to be some minor thing. May even be just sorness from riding. Or toes to long. As for bugs they drilled a hole in the top of the hoof let out the pressure and gunk and the hoof has only now grown out. Which reminds me his are getting a little long.
    That would be an abscess. Hunter had a stone bruise on his white hoof and it went purple. One of the ponies at the barn just had a really bad abscess. Could hardly walk poor thing.

    Hey everyone..just stopping in real quick to say hello from Mrytle Beach, SC! Drove the 6.5 hours today with no problems.

    Our first order of business was to go to a beach shop and get a henna tattoo on my ankle. It is a beautiful horse's head and I will take a pic tomorow when it darkens. The girl that did it was from Khazkhstan and as she was drawing it, she informed me that in her country they eat horses! LOL. Then she realized she may have offended me and apologized profusely. It s what it is. Can't get upset about things like that. She seemed relieved.

    Hunter, hope things improve up there soon!

    Nicker...I am voting on abcess.

    I didn't read all the posts. I am sorry that I am missing a bunch of stuff.

    Here's my new "baby" Sherwin. He's an 18yo...Quarter Horse? Paint horse? Pinto? Who knows? LOL

    It's his 8th day "home" and the barn asst. And my Facebook friends already say he's looking better. The vet who saw him said he only needs to gain 50-ish pounds but friends and barn peeps say he needs 100+ before I should ride him. Poor Sherwin. I'm doing everything I can to get him back into shape.

    reaching the end of my tether

    Decided to try again and take the horse to better grazing. Thought I'd load Bugs first and then the other horse Stella.

    Bugs reared and did not want to go in the side I directed him, not his normal but part of his training is go where told.
    I did my normal growl brought him up to the float again and in he went in the side he is not used to no trouble. What a guy. WHAT A GUY.

    I read somewhere about the horse hooking on and they are easer to get to do things like floating. I believe bugs has hooked on to me and that is why he will load either side. Its trust.

    Stella I spent 45 minutes with her, half in, on the side she is used to, and no I was not sucessful. I did lose my cool with her in the end. She is still alive. 10 days ago she was loading. Mares who can understand them.

    I have seperated them now not as punishment but to stop bugs getting to tied in with her. To boot I am still feeding her when all I was going to do is get them onto good grass for a few weeks.

    I'm going to advertise Stella and will look for an owner who can get her to hook on. That may fix the float issues she has developed. I sound a little annoyed it is because she used to float with no real issue. What the h--- went wrong.

    The time has come for a change and out she goes. This beauty has done trekking, cattle drives, swam at the beach. NEVER bucked, bitten, bolted, or displayed any mallace towards humans but I don't think she likes me. For the life of my I can not think why, cause I have managed to stay married, this time

    The new owner will need to impress me and be offering a long term home. She is an easy keeper and is happy to top the shelter belt trees as well as the plants in the garden and the odd flower bed. You will need to be brave to take on Stella as her name says it all.

    Inducements may be considered to the right person. Joking
