What a cutie pepper is. Lord I hope mama was a BC and not the little dog. I hope all is ok with her knee. My golden had to have knee surgery not cheap and recovery was harsh.

Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse

Hunter, hope your dog is feeling better. I remember when she was attacked by the other dog. Between horses and dogs, we sure keep vets busy don't we?

We may see our first snow tomorrow night. I stopped by on the way home from work to put Isabella's new heavyweight blanket on her.

What do you think? She won't be able to hide, that's for sure! (I hope this pic doesn't turn sideways like the others have)

Love the blanket. My horse looks like a wooly mammoth right now. Temps here are in high 20 and low 30's. He loves this weather, me not so much, ready for spring so I can start horse camping.

We raised JR's for years and was never aware that this problem is congenital. We never had a problem. Bo and I have become closer since he lost his eye. He is my constant companion. He is canine glue. He sleeps pressed against my side at night. If he is not at my feet here in the office he comes in periodically to check up on me. At night we share my recliner and watch t.v. Together. Often, he is draped across my lap or has his head nestled against my neck. I am Lucky that my wife is so tolerant.

I am sorry to hear about your pups eyes, especially at such a young age.

I had a dog that we all thought was a complete dummy. Lovely dog, but not so smart. He started tripping up and down the stairs when he was older, I used to laugh at him and tell him he was a loveable dummy. A short while later we had a car parked in our yard as the roads were dangerous and we've had people hit our parked cars before, anyway, Oscar walked into the parked car. We took him to the vet, he was completely blind, he'd been completely blind for some time. He'd never walked into anything in the house as things don't change much in my house.

Once I knew he was blind, things started to fall into place, that I hadn't really noticed so much. It sounds terrible to say that now, but I am always busy with the kids etc. Anyway, he was trained with hand commands with everything, I realized that he hadn't responded to those for some time, however if I didn't get an immediate response, I'd just verbal cues. So I figured he was just old and responding slowly.

The point of all of this ramble is to show you that my dog adapted so well to being blind that we didn't realize he was. As your pup still has one eye, arrange your house now, so that not much changes and your dog has time to get used to everything. Should the worst happen, your dog will adapt to it. You can start training now on a leash so that a little gentle jerk means a step etc.





Wishing Pepper well, she looks like a good dog.




It's my birthday tomorrow, I will be 37, so I am getting closer to be a legit member here. :)
My none horsey husband is taking me to Dover saddlery, which is in the next state on from us for show clothing. I won't be buying there as I am the bargain queen, but I need to try things on, figure things out and then shop online.

Guess this is Brad pushing me into getting my rear end showing. I do need the shove, I seem rather comfortable putting it off til next year, pretty much every year.


Oh wait, I should add a Lucas photo.

Hi all!

Hunter - oh geeze, poor Pepper! My goodness your pup runs with a rough crowd, I remember the last time he was attacked!

CW - hows the knee doing?

Alex - Lucas is a cutie. Happy early 37th! Good luck show clothes shopping...I do the same thing, try on for size locally, then scour for deals. I have an amazing show wardrobe for very little spent .

Corgi - loving Izzys blanket, so fashionable!

Had another good lesson today - sun was out, was so cold but Kes did well. We're working on haunches in, and I have a mental block. I can't wrap my head around it, I do shoulder in every time, even though I know its wrong. I was able to do this with Grace last year so I don't know what my problem is. Am getting so much better sitting the trot though, so at least there's a win.

Off to make dinner for the fam, then curl up with my Xmas Kindle, I found some race track romantic drama books I'm loving LOL

LOVE LOVE LOVE the blanket Corgi I think Hunter needs one! Wherever did you find that?

Alex love Lucas he is a cutie. Happy Birthday to you... Happy Birthday to you...

Well tomorrow Pepper is off for xrays. I am hoping to forgo surgery. I have doing some reading and apparently there are four levels of this and I think she is a 1 maybe 2. She is walking around fine and only had it go out once for about a minute yesterday morning. NOW my pony is another story. Got to the barn tonight and there is a whip out with his halter at his paddock. Uh oh what is my brat up to now. Apparently he reared up on one of the girls when she was taking him out to his paddock on Tuesday morning. Crap he used to do that to my old old BO and my last one stopped him. He hasnt done it over a year. Every one says well he is 4 but I cannot tolerate that. The good news is that one of the girls that takes lessons with a fellow boarder rode him on Sunday after her lesson (while waiting for her sisters lesson) and she is going to ride him 2 times a week. For a 10 year old she is a pretty good little rider. Fellow boarder has another girl that is working off her lessons and wants to use Hunter for her too so I think it will be good for him to be ridden almost every day of the week. He needs arena work and well we just don't do enough of it. I am hoping once spring comes and things get figured out with Pepper I will be able to ride more myself. I took tomorrow off so will go drop Pepper at vets and spend the afternoon with my pony and then he gets his tootsies done tomorrow afternoon and then back to vets to pick up Pepper. Whew I am tired already lol.

Thanks ladies!


Glad that it might not be so severe with Pepper, Hunter.
The dog I described was a different dog, sadly Oscar passed away a few years ago - but I also have a one eyed dog (from a shelter). Let me introduce Wink (He's bad dog!)

I adore him, but he is dumb and young, and needs to grow up fairly soon, without aging too fast.


He has a a habit of freaking out in his crate if left for longer than 10 mins (I don't work outside of the house, so he is never left for more than a few hours at a time). He throws himself against the back of the crate, then the front, which moves the crate across the kitchen floor. But once the crate just gave up on life, and collapsed, therefore freeing him. This is what we came home to.


Every toy that Wink owns were under the stuffing of the chair (about 10). He just simply had a party!
