Good morning everyone, and welcome to all the new folks

Stan: your "ditties" always have me laughing my butt off, keep them coming! Im so glad that stella seems on the mend, now she just needs to grow her bum hair back, or start making commercials for bald horses!

Grace: *hugs* I would be sad as well if I could only see Sapphira 3 times a week, but look at the bright side, it's all for the greater good, and i'm sure Kes is just adjusting to her new surroundings!

Corgi: Grats on your score!

Hunter: I'm glad hunter's sarcoids are healing up and covering up!

CCG: My prayers are with you and your family, I too lost my mother to cancer, this disease touches so many of us. *hugs*

So many pages to catch up on! Very sorry if I forgot anyone!!

Nothing very new on "the home front" Sapphira is very spunky, I was told by my BO that she is a "very dominant female" I sort of blank stared her since she has not acted up with me when on the lead, catching her, or well anything really lol. She has her "WOOOOP IM A 3 1/2 YR OLD TB" moments but they last all of 5 seconds lmao!! She does stare down one gelding in the barn that she seems to hate, but hey they have likes and dislikes right hahaha.

She is going well under saddle, can't wait to start showing her next summer! Thrush is one of the main problems at the moment, I've been treating her feet with Kevin Bacon thrush treatment, and it seems to clear up and then come back, i'm at a total loss, I clean her feet every single day, so it's not from having stinky feet. Other then that her feet are looking alot better then when I first got her, her overall look is MUCH better, im very happy with her progress so far. Have a great day everyone!!

Hi all!

Stan -I almost spit my coffee out all over the keyboard...hilarious one this morning! Can't wait to share it with my dad :)

Fahntasia - ah that darn thrush. Here's what I've learned over the last year, when almost every horse at the barn was getting it. Always use your own hoof pick, never let anyone else use it, and never use anyone elses. Also, use a antibacterial wipe on it each time you use it until thrush is totally gone. A friend of mine taught me to spray coppertox on once a week all winter, kept thrush at bay. Are there wet spots in her stall or pasture she keeps standing in? I'm a thrush nazi....for some reason it really freaks me out LOL!

Corgi - awesome on your trails scores...seriously sounds like so much fun!

Welcome newbies!!

Where are Foxhunter and Susan...anyone hear from either lately???

Today is my lesson day...can't wait to go see my girl! She's already going so much better, each week she has relearned something and is going to be amazing in the ring next year.

Critter, I just heard about Underwood's in the past week. Gotta say that the crusty white stuff from the baking soda (?) really made me wonder what was going on! But, the results seem to be fantastic! Your results are looking great, too!

[/QUOTE]
It is Baking powder and yes it is from that... It makes a pack or poultice to help the cut heal from the inside out and once the cut is ready it will fall off. If you go to the website the have information on how to apply.
Or you can call and talk to the man him self

I sold my Palomino so I am going to have to get another avatar. He was big and pretty but spooky. I'd rather have a plain brown horse that is a joy to ride than a pretty color that is a pain. I like to enjoy the scenery and the company and not have to worry what the horse under me is going to do. I like great ground manners, nice company manners, well trained and in my case, smooth gaited. How about the rest of you. What traits do you like in the horse you want to ride?
