Oh wow Susan, Sophie is gorgeous! Congrats, you must be ecstatic to have your dream horse!

Dee - a saddle for mothers day...you are a lucky mom, not sure my family would ever agree on a saddle for me (hubby thinks I've got two too many already LOL)

Fahntasia - wait, did I miss something somewhere???!!! The horse your trainer brought to the barn, you're buying it???? OMG how exciting! Pics?

So had the vet out to see the fetlock, and had some flexion tests and then had an ultrasound done on it. Some swelling still and inflamed, but nothing serious, all the ligaments and tendons are fine, she might have just bumped it really hard in the trailer and is still healing from that. Have some bute for 2 days, and some anti inflammatory gel to put on and keep her wrapped at night. She gets another week off, then light work, then I can ride. So, the horse is going to be fine...my savings account not so much LOL!

Am just relieved to know she is going to be ok soon.

Oh...and the vet said she only needs another 30 pounds to go until she's optimal weight...the conditioning should bring the muscle where we're lacking in certain areas. That made me happy, I've been stressing over her being too thin (apparently I will stress over this horse the rest of her life!)

Wow .. sounds like everyone had a good weekend ..

We spent yesterday marking property lines in the woods ., so today we could watch the most amazing piece of machinery ever eat the woods up .. my "pasture" is starting to look like one ....

Plenty of hardwoods .. no pines ... and we can see from one end of our property to the other now!

Thanks for the pictures-she is lovely! Might be something to keep her clean, but, like you said-an audience favorite color-especially w/the blue eyes. Isn't it wonderful to just "click" w/a horse? So happy for you. And maybe some lovely foals in the future? Very cool!

I had a town day today-had to get ant killer, hay, library books, curtain rod & curtains, groceries, & I bought a tomatoe plant! An heirloom-German Queen-has anyone had that variety?

Here are a couple of quick pics of my new saddle. Other daughter hasn't sent me the good pics that she took, yet.

Yes, it's probably an import, but the leather is decent quality, the tree is straight and tight. If the saddle lasts me a couple of years, and I can lose enough weight to fit in a "normal" saddle (this one has a 20" seat), I should be good to go.

I think the saddle may be a tad long, though. Hopefully a good pad will keep it from irritating her hips. An irritated Dancer is not a pretty sight, LOL!

I'm not so sure I feel all that sorry for Dancer having to haul my fat backside around. She seemed to enjoy that trail ride we went on last summer. And that saddle didn't fit well at all - it kept pinching her withers, poor girl!

Plain Old Dee, horses Dancer and Rain

I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men and other mythical creatures!

I don't think I know many horses that don't love a good trail ride
