Its getting a little quiet but I see visitors looking in so make a comment we do at times talk about our horses.

Stella has had a skin problem over the past two summers and therefore not a lot of riding. One of the reasons I brought Bugs.
Now her skin has cleared up, Her disposition seems to have changed and she has gained a couple of years (and pounds) I have decided to change her to bitless and see if that has a further good effect.

Last night one of the sheep got out, I opened the gate to round it up and chase it back into the paddock when out strolled Stella. Through the gate and into the trees I pointed at her but high above her head indicating no and she backed up and returned to her paddock. That was a first as she would normally just keep on going. The power I have, its amazing.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

hey stan I have a Border collie that would have rounded that sheep right up for you.. Macy my rescue... Ya she is back with us.. and my yard is looking like a mud pi from her herding...


Well Farrier is delaying me till Sunday .. BOOO Doc needs his feet tended to so much . I guess it will just give us more time to work with them so he'll be a good boy for Lance "the Farrier". He was a bit full of himself last night in the arena. I didn't get any video though :( I was trying to clean stalls and get horses fed . I let him and Cody out there for Bonding time. He even decided to Kick Cody in the chest.. Poor Cody just wanted a butt Sniff.. Guess he'll have to learn to ask first.

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

I assume Cody is your dog, if so, what a frustrating situation for him. Trying to get aquanted with a butt that is 5 feet of the ground and he is 18 inches. I surpose he lined it up and took a flying leap hoping to get a quick sniff in as he went sailing past. But to be met with a 200 pound hoof on take off. What a let down.

Lucky this thread is for the more mature amoung us and can see the funny side of animal antics. Or do I need to go to the corner again. But it sounds like some work is required in getting Doc to accept his new life. No big deal.

Is he alowing you to pick up his feet and tap the under side. That is a process I am doing with Bugs to get him to relax better for the farrier.

All of the Ocuvitamins have a low level of lutein which is why I also take a 25MG of Lutein. I take OcuCap vitamins. There are several brands and you can check to see which has the highest levels. They all have the anti occidents like vitamin c and e and minerals like zinc. My opthomologist recommended two vitamin tablets a day but I have only taken one because of the expense. I am sure one capsule a day would be good for anyone as a preventative as opposed to a treatment. I don't really pay any attention to the brand of lutein so long as it has at least 20 mg per capsule. I think we got 120 capsules of Lutein at Costco last time for $14 or $17 USD. The other I get at WalMart.

I had the farrier out today. The girls got their new shoes. Then we went for a little ride. The dirt road was solid mud, but they did ok.

Hi all!!

Had fabulous rides on Kes yesterday and Wednesday. I know I gush about fab rides, but the trainer took vids and so I will post soon to prove it. We practiced our road trot, for road hack classes...was so much fun! She is also doing her lateral movements so much better, I still am riding with my huge smile.

Heading on vacation on Tuesday and wont be here to chat much...wont se Kes for two weeks either. I'm already horse sick...

Stan - I'm so excited to see that Stella is coming back around for you!!
Hunter - howd the vet visit go?

actually Cody is my gelding



They are doing pretty good although I have not added Grace the mare in with the boys yet. Doc seems to do great with picking his feet up. The former owner says he is a brat for the farrier so we are doing a bit of extra training to make sure he will so ok.
I really love this tread.

Just for done at the barrel races. I didn't race but was there to support my girlfriend. Her horse hit the second barrel though tonight hopefully tomorrow will do better.

I'm an assistant manager at a huge chain drug store.
There are a lot if eye vitamins on the market right now, ranging from
Name brands like I-Vite and Ocuvite, to store brand generic comparisons.
If you already take a multi vitamin plus minerals, use caution and label read carefully so as not to overdo on some minerals.
Also, if you take prescription meds, check with your doc or pharmacist first for their recommendations.
What you are doing, eliduc, by adding just the straight lutein in addition to the others, is a good thing.

Too often, people buy and take a ton of supplements without realizing that some of these supplements can have adverse effects (particularly herbals), when combined with prescription meds, or even aspirin.

OK, I will get off my soapbox now.
