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

    Stan, I would make friends with the local lock smith. If you come back and the locks have been changed, then maybe he will sell you a key.

    Sorry to hear about Hunter's latest trouble. Hope that rearing problem is quickly remedeid also. Young horses can be very trying at times. Also horses w/lots of "character" - they are memorable, but sometimes difficult.

    Stan-does that ride fee include everything for the horse & rider or do you still have to bring your own food/water?

    Wow Stan googled the trek that looks like so much fun!!!! There is a cattle drive that I want to do here. I think it is 5 days and goes through the old cattle trails of the pioneers. One day I hope to take Hunter on it!

    Stan, So why do you have to tell her? Hunter-As a farrier I once got cow kicked in the family jewes. I did little pinwheels on the ground for a minute or two. Another cow kick tore all the ligaments but one in my knee. A horse swapped ends and kicked me straight from behind in the pit of my stomach. He probably would have damaged me had I not have been tossed backwards about 8 feet. I was standing beside the head of a mule and it kicked forward with a hind foot kicking me in the stomach without moving. A three year old stud reared and struck viciously as it came down striking my breast bone. That was twenty five years ago. If it had hit my face or head? Recently a physician grabbed my shoulders and pulled them together and there was an audible click from my sternum. A gelding I was leading reared and struck with the near hoof. As the hoof came up it caught the tip of my nose. 42 stitches by a plastic surgeon. I would conclude that a horse is pretty darned dangerous from either end. However, the back end tends to usually damage the lower body whereas the front end is more likely to damage the chest, face and head. They can instantly kill you from either end.

    This has nothing whatsoever to do with horses but I think it is worth passing along as it might be relevant to people over 40. The city of Tulare Calif. Is suing a Canadian insurance sompany for bad faith claim denial. A woman 19 years old had leukemia. She had a bone marrow transplant which is standard. The hospital asked for her permission to use two experimental drugs for the purpose of judging the effectiveness of the drugs. The cost of the drugs was $23,000. The entire bill was over $450,000. The insurance company is denying the entire claim on the basis of the use of the experimental drugs. The city which provides insurance for it's employees paid the hospital up front and is now suing the insurance company for bad faith. The moral of the story is that an insurance company can use the treatment of experimental drugs as an excuse to deny an entire claim.

    True, the use of experimental treatments is not covered by most insurance companies. Here in Missouri we have a state law that requires us to pay for the doctor and hospital visits that go along with the drug that is experimental - in other words, the researchers or drug companies will pay for the drugs, and some of the lab tests or whatever is required, but the rest of the care must be covered by the insurance companies. Sounds like the Canadian company didn't have that requirement. It also sounds like they could knew the plan and could have educated their insured member ahead of time if they'd wanted to.... I hope this works out for the young lady!

    I fully understand how dangerous horses are. I'm sorry I don't understand your point

    We had a trailering lesson with grace on Saturday. It didn't go so well 😒she was doing well and then exploded and hit her face hard on the trailer and ended up getting cut. I want to feel bad but I'm so frustrated with her not learning that I tend to feel grumpy over it. We are planning on selling her and how can I do that if she won't trailer?! Ugggg I'm at my wits ends. Here is a view of her owie. we are treating it with doc underwoods I had the vet look at it and he said she'll be fine.
