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

    Don't go it does take time. I forget all of the folks that put time into this thread and don't acknowledge them all but, and a big but (not mine) Who would help keep me in line now and again when I stand on toes. It takes all of us even if we at times erk each other to make it work.

    Eclipse, please don't go. I joined in May too but haven't posted too much, well at least not as much as I would if my "smart" phone didn't just arbitrarily decide which replies I can send and which ones to just banish to the outer limits.
    Besides if we hang around long enough we might really get a peek at Stan in real leggings :)
    Love those stories Stan.
    Susan, hope you're feeling better.
    CW, Glad you like your new place. I for one hope I never have to move again unless I could burn the house first and therefore have nothing to pack and move :)
    Took yesterday off work and went to a rodeo with my daughter and granddaughter, as it was supposed to be the nicest day of the week, forecast is for 100 to 105 degees for the next 4 to 5 days. Ugh!!!
    Going to try to send this now. Stay cool or warm as the need be.

    Hope to see you in other threads at least!
    And I really must try harder to keep up with these older folks!

    Older folks, steady on there, one is only as old as one feels or is that the partner one feels. Hell I don't know any more I forget must be age catching up

    I think he cut it on a little piece of metal on the hay rack on the side of the shelter, it was the only area we could see anything. It was sliced from front to back. No riding for a while I guess, sheesh. Hunter aka Houdini aka Frankenstein

    Hunter: Ouch! Glad it's stapled up, but boy that looks painful.
    outnabout pics are a few pages back - hopefully I'll have some more (better ones) tomorrow.
    eclipse Is Rey the big draft in your avitar? I love drafts
    CW good luck in the new place - hope you're able to start lessons soon.

    I'm taking tomorrow off and am planning to ride Trooper in the AM, then headed upstate (NY) for a weekend of trail riding/lessons. Hopefully it's not too hot & humid - at least it's looking like we won't get rain. Hope the weather is good for everyone this weekend.

    Yikes, Hunter, that is ghastly. Also hard to find in all that hair!

    CW, glad you're liking your new home! We missed you.

    Stan, I hope someday to meet your "She". I would like to ask her how she keeps you in line. I might learn something useful to keep my own hubby on the straight and narrow. You seem to always be thinking up some act of non-compliance!

    Today is supposed to be 104 degrees here in Missouri. We moved all the horses up near the barn for extra shade and water. Sheep pretty much have the run of the east pastures from barn to the edge of the property, so as to be able to grab the shade that suits them best.

    Despite this, hubby went out to feed this morning and found that the 33 year old gelding hadn't finished his supper last night. Poop in the pasture which is somewhat fresh, but he is not interested in eating. I pushed a tube of applesauce mixed with table salt down his gullet, to try to encourage drinking, and he's up in the barn aisle with a nice breeze. This is the 3rd mild colic event in less than a year. Waiting to call the vet.... not sure what the day will bring. I've had this old guy since he was 11 months old, and he just had his 33rd birthday early June.

    Hah - you can call me Jimmy if you want, but the handle's John. A bit north of Utica - going to take my time getting up there, maybe stop by the Double M western/tack store in Ballston Spa on the way. I'm not trailering (when I booked this trip I didn't even have him leased -- and I don't have a trailer or even a receiver hitch installed at this point). Should be fun - and hopefully up my skillz so I'm a better rider for Trooper. I'm driving back down on the 4th of July, and if I'm not too sore, I'll stop by and ride Trooper again then...

    John
