Oh heck no, England is the size of a postage stamp in comparison, so the odds are stacked in your favor.


Although, the time of posting..... nevermind, I googled that, it says it would have been 5.30pm in NZ on a Sat.

My poker face, says I fold this hand, the odds are against me.

What is the short hand for someone from New Zealand? Like Aussies, are well, Aussies?

New Zealanders are called Kiwis by us Aussies.

Stan, if you want to go on the NZ trek, and it costs you $3000, maybe you could buy She Who Must Be Obeyed something that she would like.

He needs more arena work and this way I don't have to pay for someone to ride him. They clean his paddock too
Ahhh we dream of being a show pony. Though he would look smart all cleaned up for a show

Stan, if she is wanting to go with you, then you better plan on $6,000. If she is not planning to go with you, then you better plan on $6,000.

$3,000 for your trip.
$3,000 for whatever it is that floats her boat.

Celeste, Sunset - I'm with you two. Note an earlier post of Stan's, however, in which he said that She does not require a consolation prize as he will be coming home to her... Perhaps one of you can explain this to him better than I can?

Stan, I'm in for Canadian....$5 of Obama money. He's already got mine, so tell him I said he should give you $5 of it back if I lose this pool.

Sooooo.... Hunter has torn a ligament in his fetlock. Stall rest for 4 weeks and then rehab. Have to poultice and wrap leg for 4-5 days to get swelling down.
Here he is all wrapped up

Poor Hunter65....your pony is a little stinker. After the heat is gone from the injury, you might consider magnet therapy boots. I had some front boots for my young 'un with a tendon injury, and I am very happy with how he healed. If you want to know more, I can look up the type they were (less than $100 for a pair)...After all, we just throw money into the stall anyway.... Good luck, rest and rehab can do wonders! Make sure the little stinker's barn door is latched tight!

Aw Hunter, I'm so sorry to hear about Hunter's fetlock! Stall rest...can you hand walk him or is it strictly stall rest?

Critter - My thoughts are with you, so sorry for the loss of your pup.

Stan - those pics are awesome! You have such a great place to ride. Love the horse in the back of the cow crate...can't imagine that would go over very well here in the states.

Went snowmobiling this weekend in the mountains, had such a blast. Haven't been so cold since I was a skiier back in school, but the views were gorgeous and it was so much fun. Hubby and the kids went with us, and we stopped and looked at ranches for sale, dreaming about retirement, which is way too far off.
