True. Weird game, but addicting!

Corgi, nice job on that hoof. It looks way better. Just wanna say though, when I was going barefoot (didn't work out) my horses had to go to a 5 week trim. They just grew faster. Just keep a watch on it. I gave my trimmer a little extra gas money to come out a week early.

I generally check to see who I am stealing from. Its funny how whenever I have a carrot stolen and get a message it says that I should secure my carrots. There is no way to secure them is there?

Yeah. How do we secure them? Most of the time, I'm not quick enough.

I've had excellent luck with it for all manner of skin infections and oozes ranging from sunburn to chemical burn (thin-skinned TWH doesn't get along with some fly sprays), and Pseudomonas skin infection that was resistant to all but 2 of the veterinarian's antibiotics. It also works well on cuts and other deeper skin wounds - Clinton Anderson is now endorsing it after using it on one of his animals. I also used it successfully on a baby lamb 2 years ago, with a nasty ooze in its eye, as there is a version of it labeled for ophthalmic use in cows and other animals. One treatment did the trick.

It is a simple remedy but will make the skin inhospitable to fungi and bacteria, is non-irritating to the horses and seems to soothe. Best of all, it doesn't seem to make things worse by being just another strong chemical for them to react to, or to dry the skin out further. Let me know if you would like for us to send you a small bottle. It is about $30 US for 8 ounces and $35-40 for 16 ounces.

Stella is a beautiful animal, I like the spunky look in her eye!
Thanks for that I will have a look around and if its in NZ ill try it. It also may have a different name here. And yes she does have a look about her and is not backward when letting me know if i'm being to heavy with the reins. She is still heard bound, but that will come right by the end of this coming trekking season.

Ladytrails, I have just started using Vetrycin and love it. It's expensive but it doesn't take very much to do the trick.

WithGrace, (and everyone else) I'm just catching on to the carrot game so I steal them any time I find them! Sorry in advance! I'm a competitive thing. LOL

Stan, lovely horse. I'm big on what's in the eyes and she's a good girl with tons of dignity. I love it.

Ok, that's it for me today. Off to go job hunting. Good day everyone.
I would love to have someone that can ride the diferent styles take her for a spin. I know she has had training in some show disiplins. Now and again when playing she will hold herself so proud and head tucked in she looks amazing. Brings a little feeling into one's self. Me I'm a climb on hang on rider. We keep our horses at a walk but I know she has a little extra. I could take lessons but am a little lazy at present.
