    Clydesdale

    Figured I'd share a quick snap of me on Scotty, a sweet Clydesdale gelding (not mine, unfortunately!). I love being around Clydes - they have such great personalities. The farm I rode him at has trail rides for novice riders, so I invited some friends and they had a great first ride on these big guys, then we watched the derby. Not a bad day!

    My hubby said the same thing. He found out I was looking around for a new saddle and the sh** really hit the fan. I told him to quit griping about the horses not being ridden, then, because we have two saddles and three riding horses, and -0- riders who can ride bareback.

    He then said, well, we can always sell the horses, since no one is riding them.

    I pointed out that someone could ride them if we had one more saddle, and if that saddle would fit my fat backside!

    He said, it would be cheaper to get rid of the horses.

    I said it would be easier to get rid of the hubby, and who else but me would put up with his crabby BS?

    He shut up.

    Texas - OMG that pup is outrageously cute! Congrats, I think you found a good one!

    Did Rascaholic seriously just share that she has a mystery horse box from hubby then go to sleep on us? How rude! Now I need to know whats in that box!

    Rascaholic - 7 saddle pads makes perfect sense to me...I have 5 and am dying to place an order for a custom colored Mattes pad. Have you guys ever played with this???? Konfigurator fr MATTES Lammfell Sattelunterlagen von www.lammfell.net I've lost hours of sleep recently configuring pad colors for Kes. So far I've created about 10 that I can't choose from, and need to convince DH I NEED a shaped English pad for my A/P saddle in Kes's colors (burgandy and silver/grey) and since he doesn't yet know about the new saddle on its way to me, I can't really explain how it's going to need a nice new half pad...

    I ran out to the barn this morning (so wonderful to be able to do that, 8 miles away and a 15 minute drive) to grab her blanket to wash while DH is at work...took one look at her and went into panic mode. Her eyes were so puffy and swollen, and still watering. I am so lucky that our trainer/BO is right there on site, and so awesome. I called him, he came out, took one look and said she's got allergies. We put her fly mask on, put her in turnout for 30 minutes and she was happy as can be, but rubbing her eyes on her legs every now and then as they are itching. As long as she doesnt run her cut on the eyelid, I think she will be ok. Put more meds on the cut, and my BO is going to check on her. I'll bring the blankie back out tonight in case she needs it, and check on her then too. But, my BO was able to calm me down, I have the vet on speed dial and was about to make an emergency call....for allergies...new horse mom here LOL
