wow can't keep up with all of you guys. Welcome to all the newbies.
Glad to see your ponies went to good home Stan and Critter (BTW very cute vet).

Good luck on the show this weekend Grace. The trainer at our barn is determined to get me back into English riding and jumping with Hunter. NOT HAPPENING.

Hunter seems to be healing well and he is actually behaving like the pony he used to be. He is being so good and BO has been taking him out on the trails too. I hope to get out on them tomrrow.

I'm going to pick up my new tow pig this evening so I can have a reason to find a good horse trailer to take the horses to trails when they are ready. Found a 99 Ford F350 dually for almost half its value and no way could I pass it up.

My 2nd daughter and her son are home(live with me) enjoying their birthday today. She turned 21 and he turned 2.Yep her son was born on her b'day..how easy is that to remember? We are having his b'day party at a park in town that has a huge wooden play ground for all the kids from church and his Friday co-op class.

This is for those that are experiencing Rain, though it may be to much, and snow which also may be to much. Bottle it and send it over.

We have still not had any rain soon it will be down to the beach for a salt water scrub up and to the lake for a rise off.

We have no grass. Saw my neighbour this morning and said to him I was taking Stella for a ride over his farm and let her eat his grass. He just smiled and said, if you find some grass take a photo, because no one will believe you.

We are in trouble worst drought in 38 years and it is the whole of the north Island of New Zealand not just my patch. The only difference is Northland has been going through very dry conditions for the past 4 years the rest of the country not as long.

I have a trek to go to on the 16th thought i'd ride stella if I can get her a little bit more fit. But I have my concerns for the conditions. All it will take is a spark and its will be all on and no way of stopping any fire that gets a hold. I think they should postpone untill the middle of next month when the temp will have droped and the fire risk come down a little and of course, Stella, Bugs and myself will be a little fitter.

Cheers all

Now if we lived within ear shot I could have fitted you into a good second hand two horse trailer/float.

I have brought a new one, so out with the old. Sounds like some thing my wife is likely to say when referring to me

The ford sounds like a good buy. Trouble in NZ our country roads aren't made for big horse trailers and tow rigs. When choosing my new float I had to come down in size from what I really wanted to accomodate the roads we use.

I use an Isuzu bighorn 4x4 as a tow waggon. Its only a two horse power vehicle. (Only capable of towing a float and two horses up a hill)

over 40

Has anyone heard of or experienced siezures in horses? My Arabian is suspected to of had one last fall...Any input would be great! He seems fine now and my denial is diminishing a bit......I know I should not ride him anymore but I still do once in awhile. He has not had another episode so I hope it was a one time thing......
