    Wow! This thread is active and hard for me to keep up with. Also, I realized I should be looking for the over-50 crowd!

    Anyways, thanks for all the warm welcomes, and have great rides this summer. I'll be around on other threads, but am signing off this one!

    Just read up to date and seems I am not the only one who had an eventful weekend.

    Saturday went to my cousin's wedding after work. It was nice.





    After the reception we stopped by Whataburger and got some fun pics. That is my niece in his lap.

    Yesterday I spend a couple hours with mom before going out to feed and spray down the horses. Decided to work with Trusty some more on loading in the trailer and had a major set back. I will not be able to go on the trail ride I had planned for the 6th of July. Trusty decided to rush out of the trailer as I was going to the back to latch the rear strap and hung his leg under the trailer gashing it pretty badly. I am not having good luck with horses and their back legs lately. I've been pretty down about this and even second guessing keeping any of them. I went to fast this time trying to get him loading good before the trip to the trail ride and cost us both. I was in the stall with him til late last night and finally gave up for the shower and bed.

    Here is his injury.

    Got the bleeding stopped with a semi tight wrap and will leave it til tomorrow after work before redoing the bandage. Ordering some underwoods today and hope to see as good of results from it as I did from the Salve I used on Boo. Underwoods is cheaper for a larger quantity.

    Hope everyone has a great week.

    Oh Rick that is terrible. A horse that trailers well is such a blessing-I hate loading issues. Once I got my slant load, all my horses became great loaders. Hope the healing is quick.

    Rick, I am so sorry about Trusty's leg. That looks awful. The good news is that it doesn't look as deep as Boo's from the pics. I have a step-up trailer and this is my worst fear with unloading. I am obsessive about footing and you can't always get it right, especially if they're not watching where they put their feet and balance.

    It's always something, though, with horses. If it's not their blood on the ground, it's their minds turning quirky and performance issues, like Stan's with Stella. At my barn, it's the old gelding (34 years old) trying to colic again. He's not eating much and acts 'off', pooped yesterday morning or afternoon but nothing since last evening. Bowel sounds active and I could hear them from 3 feet away. I've dosed him with salt in applesauce last night and electrolytes this AM, plus Fastrac x 2 and trying to entice him to eat some alfalfa pellets mixed with his regular pelleted feed, all soaked liberally in water. He's slurping that up now, so fingers crossed that all comes out in the end, ha ha. This weekend was hot and very humid so I'm hoping this is nothing more serious than heat-related lack of appetite. He can colic from time to time, and we've kept it from being really severe episodes by watching his appetite - a good gauge of how he's feeling.

    Stan, congrats on beating out the younger conventional generation for Alex's affections. At the same time you're fixating on her knees, it's still good to know that one of SWMBO's smiles is enough to cause you to rush away from the computer. A bird in the hand is better than promises from PA, right? You are funny.

    Just spoke with wife, she said he was doing ok as he had weight on that leg when she came up. It is still tender to the touch and I figure he is putting weight on it to rest the other leg from holding the bad one up all night.

    Should have the Underwoods here Friday to start using on his wound. I'm just really upset with myself for jumping steps to loading him when I know better.

    Hey we all make mistakes, it will heal in no time. I really like the woundkote if you want something until your other stuff gets here, TS should have it. It's easy to apply and stays where you put it.

    Getting ready to head out to my little project. Will catch up later.

    Alex, like the new shoes and the old ones. I HATE to get dressed up but sometimes we have to
