    Corgi-so sorry to hear about your loss of power & that you had to retreat to a hotel, but glad there was a vacancy. Hope you get your power back & your stock of propane so you're ready if it happens again. We had some rain/snow tha last few days, but are suppossed to be warming up after this. I am looking forward to not always wearing 4 layers of clothing,plus keeping the fire going for much of the day.

    Stan-loved the joke. Sorry that SWMBO is being cranky. Is she missing Kate? Is she going to get another horse? I hope no more wild animals invade your home-that is a bit scary.

    We had some water leak into the back side of the house-don't know if its seeping under the slider or what-it doesn't always happen, & this was a fairly light rain, but went on over 3 days, but we're drying out now,& I don't want to get to the 100+ days for a few months yet.

    Welcome to our new posters-this is a great thread.

    With Grace-can't wait to hear of your show results.

    Hope the W/E is going well for everyone.

    I have hosed many wounds and have never seen it cause a problem. It keeps the buildup of serum and yuck and bacteria cleaned off so that it can heal. I would hose a wound like that twice a day. I would not use a high pressure hose, just a nice gentle irrigation.

    My son was home for the weekend and he went on a nice little trail ride with me. We had a nice time.

    With docs ypu don't hose or clean it creates a band aide and heals from the inside out.
    The instructions are on the website and you can also call and talk to the inventor himself buddy. :)

    Hi all!

    Corgi- so sorry you've lost power and poor Isabella!!

    Oobiedoo- hows the pony today?

    Stan- great jokes, can't wait to share them!


    The show went great! Was the biggest I've been to so far, they had to keep splitting classes they were just so big! Most of my classes has 15 to 17 horses in them! So, we placed second in three of them and also fourth. I was really happy with those results and now know what we need to work on for next month. We trailered perfectly, and on the ride home I decided not to paste her, and she still trailered beautifully! Dare I say we finally are past the trailer demons??!!

    Am on a plane to AZ, cacowgirls neck of the woods, to see my parents. Looking forward to more sun and warmth and leaving today's rain behind!

    Hi to all new peeps on here. Actually got some reading done on the thread. Had a great weekend here. No rain.no snow. Got clear up to mid fourties. Degrees that is. Got my fencing done. And got shoes tacked on a couple of horses. And hooked the drag up behind the tractor and drug my pasture . So yes. Takes me longer to stand up. My old man sounds get louder this time of the year. But got a good jump on spring so I can start working in the arena with a couple of my quarter horses when the weather is decent. Decent = not snowing. Pouring down rain or mid twenties. I find every year im more andmore a fair weather rider..lol. Hope you get some rain stan. If I could I would send you some or our snow or rain. Glad to see every one is doing good. Im actually really looking forward to working my one filly in the arena. So im hoping we don't get any more snow. Hows that for rambling about everything and yet not saying anything. Lol. Ride safe every one. Looking forward to hearing the stories from the new people on here. Happy trails..

    Oops, Oobie, It seems I got your pony troubles mixed up with Critter. Critter, apologies - so this is the over-40 crowd and you know memory is what it is these days, right?!!?

    With Grace, your news was awesome! So glad you did well at the show and even better news that Kes is handling trailering now. Yay, what a great job you're doing!

    Critter, I think you have had your share of troubles in the past few months so certainly wasn't wishing any more on you! LOL I do remember Doc's troubles. I picked out my Dallas' boy parts the other day and was thinking of you and your Doc at the time. Our vet comes tomorrow so he'll do the deep cleaning, ha ha.

    Stella's latest war wound Its off to the vet to get the flap trimed and a plaster. But I can't get there untill Friday

    Manuka honey with an active 20+ is required and today I brought some but only active 5+.

    I am sure she does these things just to get out of work.
    Her skin has come right and with the very hot weather we are having I expected more skin issues so it looks to me the tic collar was the problem
    Now to fix her leg.
