I am learning all kinds of New Zealand terms!


Nutbar crims: criminals with mental illness generally caused through drug use.

Chucking a sicki: Unscheduled and unsantioned day off.

Kate has gone for a long ride with a prospective buyer.

So if I fake sick like I did last Tuesday, would that be "chucking a sicki"?

My boss would be flarking mad if she knew................

At the moment we still have Kate

She did a few pig roots at the beginning. She refused to run. She walked slow. She even shied at a wave. Kate has spent her life on the beach. Do you think she got wind of being sold and screwed up the sale.


Go Kate

Hi all!

Back from the sunny beaches, I guess we had to come back sometime...a thick turtleneck sweater does not go well with a tan though. Got good pics of the trail ride throught the maui mountains, was sooo much fun. The guide asked how experienced we were (we were the only ones that morning for the ride) and when he heard we had a horse and had quite a bit of experience, he let us canter behind him up the trails and through little valleys! Have never done that before, I now see why treks and trail riding has such allure...its an incredible rush to gallop in the open not caring about your equitation, or what you look like. I even wore a cowboy hat, rode in a Western Saddle and neck reined! Aren't you all proud of me???? Pics to come...

I'm all caught up in the thread, now to see if I respond to the right people:

CW: hey lady! Hows the knee? Thought of you on my trail ride as the guide was telling us all about the horses there, and that he even had two that were so gentle anyone would have been safe to ride them. I thought how you would so love to gently walk that trail...if you ever go to Maui you have to go ride that trail.

Stan - yep, ladytrails is correct, I'm the one with the trailer cam. Best investment for trailering besides the BeKalm paste. I love it! I can clearly see whats going on back there while driving, and also attach it above my hitch as I'm backing to get it right on. Mines the Trailer Eyes model. Sorry about Kate, what a perfect example of being a mare

Corgi - congrats on the new car! How exciting! And so glad to hear Scuffy is doing better. I so know what you mean about colic, it is so scary. Our bout back in August still freaks me out to think about, and brings tears to my eyes remembering how miserable she was.

Critter - you mention using Ace to get Grace loaded...have you had success with that with Grace? I ask because it has no affect on Kes whatsoever. The BeKalm paste though sets in 2 hours and lasts I think another two, and does wonders. She doesnt even flinch at the trailer.

Montana - so good to hear from you again and that you've got internet again!

Anyone heard from Susan or Eagle or J in NY or Fahntasia? It's been awhile...

New to Group

Hi! I've just found this group, and want to say hello! I'm 57 this Sunday, and just gotten back into riding. Haven't had a horse since I was 17!

Although one of the things I enjoy is being at a barn with lots of adults of different ages, and riding with them, I am interested in having a community of other "seasoned" riders.

I've got a 7 year old, never raced, VERY GENTLE thoroughbred rescued from a feed-lot auction in August. We've been doing short trail rides and walking along quiet(ish) roads. The winter has been very icy here. Last week something flew up right behind us and she spooked, jumping sideways a few feet. I hit the pavement on my right side (buttock and elbow). The rest of the horses at the barn, nearby, heard this and whinnied, and she galloped off to the security of home.

I was crawling over to put my elbow in the snowbank, when two different women in cars, having just passed my running horse, slowed down to pull around me in the road, (one even met my eyes), and kept on driving! A young guy was the next person by and he stopped. I was able to get in his car, back to the barn, and someone drove me home. My horse was frightened by the whole event (she's young) but had only some scrapes where she jumped a stone wall to get home.

After a week of being home and in pain, what my MD described as, "the biggest hematoma I've ever seen!". It's lucky that I landed on my "crumple zone", as no bones were involved, but I have a HUGE right buttock swelled with blood. Did I mention HUGE? I've changed my phone ringtone to, "I like big butts" in want of some comic relief.

Most difficult has been being inert for this long - the barn work, outdoors and horses are my therapy. I feel OLD, OLD, OLD - and I don't like it! I remember when falling off meant a couple of days of bruised ego and bruised body, not a significant injury with big impact on your activity.

I don't think I"ll be in the saddle for a month or more, and I know that the groundwork that I can do during this time will pay off, but RATS!!!

Any other tales of bruised butts appreciated!

Best,

Marcie

Marcie,
It's good to have you here. I am 55. I took a pretty nasty spill about a year ago. It just happens. I'm really glad that you didn't break anything. You'll be up and running pretty quick I'm sure.
