    [QUOTE=Cacowgirl;1706695]Welcome saferider, nice mare & love your product. I've never liked competing, just like riding & sharing the great outdoors w/a trail partner-usually a mare.

    Thanks Cacowgirl! I love sharing the outdoors with my mare, we sometimes have to have discussion on whether what I want to do is a good idea, but I do value her judgement and input! A couple weeks ago I was riding along toward home at a brisk walk and she stopped in the middle of the road for what looked like no reason and appeared to be waiting for something. I don't urge her on, but I looked around, didn't see anything, and just waited. A few seconds later she started walking again and a tree branch that was about 80 feet above us came crashing down into the road in front of us right where we would have been if she hadn't stopped. She didn't even flinch, and calmly stepped over it. She knew it was going to happen.

    I see you are in Arizona? My Welsh Cob Stallion "retired" to Hereford, Arizona, in the winter I often wish I had gone with him! He has a couple nice Welsh Cob mares and loves his new life.

    Welcome Saferider I don't ride to compete, just treking. I would have to be the most unable, discordinated rider on this thread. My horses Stella often stops and looks around but its just to annoy me, or to discuss who is really in charge and then will move on, but deep down I know she has practiced her moves very well. No danger, just letting me think she is doing what I have asked for, when all the time she is doing what she wanted to do. That's a mare for you, are they not all the same.

    Az is quite different from Vermont, I'm sure. WE are getting a breeze just now & finally dropping out of the 90's-ahh-some relief. This was my first summer here & it was quite an eye-opener!

    Welcome Saferider

    Grace: You and Kes look lovely together, she is a really stunning mare!

    Stan: I'm glad that Stella is FINALLY growing her hair back, hope it keeps going in the right direction!!

    Hunter: Happy pills are gooood pills, my dental surgeon gave me a dose of that when I had my wisdom teeth removed, I did try and bite him a few times, and talked TOTAL nonsense, in my own defense it was the pills fault lmao! Did you get something done?

    So I gave up on Kevin Bacon thrush treatment, and started Sapphira on a product called Dry Feet, I scrubbed her feet last night with soap and applied the product to her clean feet. She was fantastic and let me manhandle her feet without complaint, she has come such a long way from when I got her 4 months ago!

    Her thrush isn't bad, it's mild, but I don't want it getting any worse, especially with the paddocks being all muddy with all the rain we have been getting. The other stuff just wasn't cutting it at all.

    She is doing great under saddle, more focused on me, not on everyone else and thier horses in the arena which is hard for her, she is VERY sociale. I'm still trying to get her to ignore her reflection, I do believe she has fallen in love with herself LOL.

    My trainer got on her on Monday to see how she's going, my Sassy one decided she was going to stop and poop, my trainer gave her a good smack with the crop to let her know that it wasn't acceptable, the look on her face had me bent over laughing my ass off, her trying to poop, but with her butt scooted under her with an "OMG SHE'S TRYING TO KILL ME" look on her face. Let's just say that my trainer got the stink eye from Sassy for the rest of the day!

    I hope everyone has a great day!

    I had a gum implant, that's when they take tissue from the roof of your mouth cut an opening in your gums and sew the new tissue in. NOT FUN, my chin is bruised and numb

    If you have gum recession. I only had a little bit luckily. I know people that had their whole mouths done. Really hurting today. The roof of my mouth feels like a pizza burn times 100.

    Happy Thanksgiving this weekend to all my Canadian friends, enjoy the weekend. Going to be beautiful and sunny here so hope to get out riding. Though hubby home after a mionth away so gotta spend some time with him

    Hunter, I had that done on one area last year. Pretty miserable! I feel your pain. The area where the graft was actually placed didn't bother me at all...but the donor site at the roof of the mouth hurt so bad. The good news is that I was back to normal within a week except for some slight swelling that lasted about a month. Hoping you have a speedy recovery.
