so I have been on this thread for a little bit now..I have noticed that some of you on here have somehow formed friendships & the rest well we sort of just take up space here..I have tried to join in but still feel like an outsider lookin in to the circle of friends wanting to be part...had a rough day ah well read, move on, horse is hurt & I worry, ah well read & move on, wish others well on what they are doing, ah well read & move on. I will be forever greatful for learning about neem oil here but somehow don't feel included in the "in" crowd not something I ever wanted to experience after those dreadful teenage years oh so long ago....soo I bid you all good luck in your endeavors with your horses

Horsepower: the extraordinary capacity of a horse to elevate the human spirit!

Eclipse, that's odd.... just to follow the events, did he show up more lame after he'd been stalled for a while (after turn in)? Do you think maybe he got kicked in the shoulder? How is he tonight?

I hate lameness...I have had 2 horses with tendon injuries and I just clench up when I see limping...

Eclipse I understand what you are saying here. I think it is maybe not as much exclusion as that some people have so much more time to post than others and therefore they carry the thread. I felt snubbed recently when I sort of reintroduced myself but that is what happens when I don't contribute regularly so there is nobody to blame but myself.
Hope to see you in other threads at least!
And I really must try harder to keep up with these older folks!

A former police mount sounds awesome! Lucky you! Can't wait to see pics.

Awe eclipse don't leave I am sorry if I missed what was going on with your horse. Sometimes when you miss too many days you miss things. I hope he is OK.
Here was my night when I got to the barn. Went to get hunter from his paddock and lo and behold his ear was sliced from front to back

Vet came out and stapled it up

Oh my poor pony

Are you feeling better now? Flu in the heat is the WORST!
