Nice to be back and reading everyone's adventures.
Welcome back Stan, sorry for the septic problems. My DH works in that field (water treatment), so I know all about those stinky problems. TJ
: Congratulations on your decision to quit smoking. It's the best gift you can offer yourself. You'll be healthier and richer! (and smell better too) Celeste
: I think I would have dismounted at the first shot. Scary! CCG
: super news about the morgan horse. Hope you'll keep us posted and pictures will follow. Roadyy
: nice picture with the kids, braving freezing waters. Sounds like a fun week end. You trim your horses: anything you CAN'T do?
Out of curiosity: regular trim or barefoot type of trim?
Had a great hot and humid week end. Drove Saturday to the ridecamp of the endurance event (just over 2hrs drive). Nice warm night in my tent, sleeping to the sound of horses nickering all around. Sunday, full day of volunteering at the in/out timer. Which means I saw every horse in and out every loop of the race. The 100 miles was won by a lovely american lady, a loop ahead of everyone. For the 75 miles, there was an exciting race to the finish, won by just one head. Smiling riders, nice crews, cool vets. Next year, hope to be riding that one.
Yesterday, DH trimmed all our horses and took out a mountain of manure from the paddock. Now that the paddock's clean: vermifuge tonight for everyone.
