So I went back to see Kes last night, her fetlock is a lot less swollen. Walked her again, then another cold hose on the foot and put her back to bed. I think she's going to heal up ok. Put more meds on the eye, she still flinches when I touch it, but it isnt oozing, so I am hopeful it won't be a problem.
For the fetlock - Something I swear by (and is rated very highly by the little mag Perfect Horse which does independent testing) - Sore No More - really works. THere's a poultice and a spray. I use the spray on Dallas when he had fluid around his tendon. It can be used under wraps, which I did, and then put his magnetic boot on top of it. Worked great to take out the swelling! And inexpensive.

Thank you! I've not heard of that, will look into it. I'm also going to invest in a cold pack to wrap around her legs for the next time. Running water for 10 minutes at a time creates a huge muddy mess, not to mention a large waste of well water.

Ok, seems as thought we have some creative people on this list...I need to create a slogan for our trail riders group. Our present one is "What happens on the trails, stays on the trails". Yes, a copy of Vegas but it is a cute shirt.
Our trails are called Proud Lake. They are the most rugged of the trails in our area. They are hilly and not as groomed. I was going to try to incorporate something like that into it...like "Proud Lake Trail Riders...." this is where I get stuck.
Anyone that has a good one, please chime in! Thanks!!!

I do not think that there is a meat I do not like.
I love lamb and it should not be fatty, but majority of meats are best cooked slow.

I have eaten horse meat, it is sweeter than beef and a very different grain to it. I can see nothing wrong with eating horse providing that it has been humanely killed.
Laws on all slaughter for animals in the UK are far stricter than anywhere else and adhered to. A vet has to be present when the animal is killed if it is entering the food chain.

I collect tripe for the dogs from the local slaughter house and was given some alpaca to try. I haven't yet as it needs three weeks hanging.

Oh, a good accompaniment with lamb is mint sauce or red currant jelly.

Sorry, no cure as far as I know!

I have at least nine saddles, four of which are dressage saddles and I no longer compete.
I have goodness knows how many bridles and bits and pieces, and am still collecting!

I did have a good sort out, there is a big sack of odds and sods that I am sending to a charity.

I am sending Grace double bridle bits, I would rather they were used than hanging on the wall.

Give me his email address, I'll drop you in it before the saddle arrives, and by the time it gets to you he will be over it. It works on my wife. I inadvertantly mention to a friend who mentions to his wife, and by the time I get home from work she has had all day to stew over it and the steam has been taken out of her argument/complant.

The other trick I use is always order two. Look what I brought for you dear. That ones saved me meany meany times.
If you havn't ordered two, use the first option. Hahaha
