    Talking on dogs attacking horses. One of the ladies we ride with was riding through the township she lives in giving the horse experience with traffic and the hum drum that goes on. In NZ there is the great new zealand trek which is coming to its last year in the north island Its on the net look it up that's trekking for a holiday. Back to the story the lady I am talking about and her horse have been going for the past few years so her riding through the town was training. While riding along some yobo walking his pit bull started stiring his dog and it slipped the collar and attacked the horse. My friend was dumped on her rear on the road as the horse took off. (She is well north of 40 + 20). And the dog close at its heals around a corner and out of sight they went.

    Panic set in for her horses safety, they followed it around the corner and there it was, waiting, the dog DEAD.

    Sarah the horse is around 17 years and has spent most of her life pig hunting in very thick NZ bush. A very wise, experienced, horse. No fear of dogs and knew how to deal to them.

    Pit bulls in this country are frounded upon and the powers that be are trying to get rid of them.

    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!
    Can you really afford to keep this dog.
    Don't answer cause I had a boxer who decided to find out what was in the inside of a matress and set about finding out. When I arrived home there were parts of the matress all through the house and the dog, well he was sitting in the hole in the middle of the matress with a smile of satisfaction on his face. I allowed him to live his life and payed the bills as he presented them.

    I like the blanket, too, hope your dog is recovering well.

    CW-keep on doctoring that knee-did they give you any exercises to do to strengthen it? Or do they say rest for now?

    Stan-that horse sure knew how to protect herself!

    AlexS-Happy Birthday!

    A little bit warmer here today & sunny. Didn't have to break ice off the water buckets & yesterday they were almost solid w/ice. So nice to have running water in the house again. Looking forward to spring,but know now that every season does have it's challenges-this country living is very different from my previous location.

    Soooo I Rescued a Rooster yesterday LOL he was trying to cross a busy highway. Yes I asked him why he was crossing the Road?? He said that he wanted to see the world. Me and 2 men in their 60's caught him up and then they said ok what should we do with him??? Hmmm I said well put him in my trunk and I'll take him home with me. Mind you I have NO where for a rooster. So I called a friend that has chickens and he is now getting fat and has many girlfirends to play with.
    Here is the rooster I have no Idea of breed lol

    Omg when it rains it pours. While pepper is at the vets getting X-rays I decide to go ride my pony. Being such a beautiful afternoon I thought I would let him run around arena. Bad idea as I now have a lame pony. Not sure what he did but he is limping on his front right and is having troubke bending his knee

    Love this thread! Won't tell my whole story, but rode on and off when younger. Late 30's got a horse again. What an experience, and a wonderful one at that. Does anyone else suffer from "loss of confidence" now that you're older and wiser? LOL. I think about the things I did as a kid and just shake my head. I've found groundwork has helped my saddlework a lot, and I wouldn't have given that TWO THOUGHTS as a kid. I sometimes think of those childhood horses and bless them in horse heaven for taking care of me....

    Now that I'm over 40 (just) here's what I've discovered:
    1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
    2. My wild oats have turned into prunes and all-bran.
    3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
    4. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.
    5. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.
    6. If all is not lost, where is it?
    7. It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.
    8. Some days, you're the dog; some days you're the hydrant.
    9. I wish the buck stopped here; I sure could use a few.
    10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
    11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
    12. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.
    13. The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.
    14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he'd have put them on my knees.
    15. When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone want to play chess?
    16. Its not hard to meet expenses . . . They're everywhere.
    17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth..
    18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . ....I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I'm here after
    19. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.

    20. For those that are 36, 37, and under 40 are you sure you want to contribute to this thread.
