Hi all from tropical sunny Maui!

Just popping in to say hi and catch up.

Stan- I'm sorry that Kate is going, sounds like she who must is preparing for a new horse though with the trailer shopping?

Corgi- worrying for you and scuffy...any update?

Going horseback riding tomorrow to see sugar cane and pineapple platations. My 11 yr old is so excited to go with me so that his riding lessons last summer can be put to use. Missing my girl so much need a horse fix ASAP! Bird and whale watching has been Incredible though...you can hear the humpbacks singing when you are out snorkeling!

Wow...thank you so much for your concern everyone. It really means a lot and is a ray of sunshine coming through this really crappy week! I am sorry I haven't given an update. In addition to this, I had minor foot surgery today. When it rains, it pours.

Vet came out and tubed him today. He said there was no impaction. He doesn't know why he isn't pooping or drinking. He won't eat his grain but he will graze if we put him on a lead and walk him. Vet is perplexed. He is hoping that the tubing will jumpstart his digestive system. So now it is watch and wait. He doesn't act like he is in pain. He is acting normal. He was started on a different feed about 3 months ago and we are wondering if that has something to do with it. It has flax seed in it, I think. (Some sort of seed anyway)

And yes, Hunter is correct. His name is Scuffy. He came with that name and we don't know the story behind it but it fits him. I always said if he was human, he would be Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. He is such a fun horse.

So, the immediate danger is gone but now we need to pray his digestive tract gets back on track! :)

Thanks again for the concern. You all are the best!

I'm so glad he is doing a little better. When you didn't post, I was afraid that there was really bad news. I hope your foot feels better.

You are not stalking the thread any input its what makes it a success. As we are over 40 we are allowed to ramble and be concerned for others.

I measured the trailer Roslyn has her sights set on, its a little biger than the one we have but very well built. Welsh design and built No chinese parts. So it goes to show, if a manufacture can get there act together they can produce a quality product at a price we can afford and keep their own people working, rather than getting it made in china to keep the price down. I don't think its keeping the price down, but how much profit they can make.

Pinkpony555.I'm sorry, but we have a very strict entry code to this thread.
You have to be prepared to post a comment.
You have to have a sence of humour.
You have to be interested in horses but be able to not always talk about the horse.
And the final is be over 40.

If you don't qualify I would not lose any sleep over it.

Are you over 40, go on disclose your age to the world
