The owner was holding the mare while my friend was doing up the cinch, and the mare lunched at the owner with open mouth to bite her. I saw the horses mouth open and heard the teeth snap shut a mere inch from the owners face. To look at the arm wound above makes me shudder and even more so to think what kind of damage this mare could have caused to the owners face. Needless to say, my friend said no to this horse.
my husbands Father had to have his face reconstuction surgery after a mare took half his face off. He was buying her and went to get her out of her stall. He haltered her and went to lead out. She was perfectly calm and the turned on him. He is a breeder and pretty good horseman it was a freak thing. Hubby ended up having to do a photo shoot for him as the World Champion Appaloosa heritage show in 2007 he had to dress in complete Indian headdress and paint. I have a picture here some place of the photo shoot I will have to find it.

I have found a shop that sells donut holes trouble is its 60 miles one way from my place. Country living don't we miss out on some of the pleasures of life.

Still no rain The forcasters are telling us its on its way but never gets here. Time those came and lived local see what it really is like to have the ground crack open and swallow a cat.

Corgi I send my thoughts to you and yours. Stay strong.

Off to pick up some hay and using the new float. I want to get rid of the new smell and replace it with the smell of food. The horses are getting lethargic specially Bugs. They need some green grass. Ill get both horses out this afternoon and get them into the new float/trailer then start riding around the paddock.

Words. In NZ its a horse float in the States its a trailer that's why I use Float/trailer.

Read about a young women that talks to animals Anyone experienced that. I would love to know what Stella is thinking. well perhaps not. Yesterday both myself and Roslyn were leaning over the fence. Stella walked away from me and put her head beside Roslyns. What is the message she is sending me. Yet when I walk into her area she has a little conversation with me. That's new.

Cheers all.

Hi all!

Getting caught up with all that's going on here...

Corgi - thinking of you and sending prayers for your family and dad.

Hunter - WOW! That looks painful. Scary that Hunter would do that to you!

Stan - did I miss new trailer pics??

CW - how are you lady?

Koolio - how awesome to have a successful clinic! And I LOVE your BT...we had one before our current pup. He was the worlds best dog and I still miss him.

Love all the doggy pics!!


Things are still going well with Kes. Were prepping now for our first show of the season. Is 4 days long, so will be exhausting but fun. First day I have three dressage tests to ride, so have been spending lots of night hours memorizing tests. I'll be sleeping in my truck all 4 days, that should be interesting!! But, the good thing is I have no anxiety any longer about trailering her, so will pull her to the showgrounds the day before along with a full truck and tack room to spend 4 nights there. I guess there are showers there...that should be interesting!!

We have our last schooling show on the 13th of this month, was so much fun last month I'm hoping it goes as well.

Kes got teeth floated and vaxed yesterday, so she gets this week off. What do I do with all this free time LOL!

With Grace the photos of the new float are back on page 766.
Good to hear your horse is going well.

Hunter65 that looks bad some re-education of the horse required. You are lucky a hunk of flesh was not removed. And I thought horses only ate grass. Looks like yours was trying for a steak dinner. But back to being serious some attitude adjustment is required. Horse love bites and humans don't mix well.

Ahh I didn't go back far enough, wonder what else I've missed!

VERY nice trailer Stan, as someone else mentioned looks similar to the Brenderup (dream trailer, though I dare never mention to the hubs I have a dream trailer other than the one I own!)

Talking about trailers I introduced Stella to the new one this afternoon. As I walked into the padock she recognised the bitless halter, looked me in the eye and turned and walked away. We play catch me if you can frequently. I knew I was going to be in fore a fight getting her into the float. Stella being Stella she only walked 20 yards and waited for me to catch up, this time when I approached she did not move off, I was on a winning note.

Led her back to the float and started to work her around it. Her head was high and neck arched and her tail was being held high. (she is impressive when like that) Stella had grown a hand or two. I was in bare feet, dum move. I had to spend 30 minutes pushing her around in a confind area and looking after my toes. First attempt to get her to load she went up the ramp, stopped, looked at me, and I could see the defiance in her stance. I am not going in there and back down the ramp she went in full flight with me hanging off the lead rope.

I had a talk to her and explained politly how much I had spent so she could ride around in comfort and style, and she was going to get into the float or it was going to be a long night. Took about another 30 minutes of up the ramp and out again, the same conversation in her ear, then out of the blue her head came down and in she went, well almost, she made sure her butt was right on the tail gate so she could not be locked in. I accepted that for the night. Ever noticed they know just how far to go in to stop you from closing the door and when you give them that final tap on the rump, instead of going forward, they go backwards and you have to start all over again. Not to dum are they

Tomorrow she gets shut in and can stand there for 30 minutes, then Ill take her for a few miles.

Bugs in the afternoon, looks like an interesting day with him. If he keeps following me perhaps I'll get lucky and he will follow me straight into the float. Wouldn't that be one for the books.
Shoes on tomorrow stupid of me to carry on without them it could have been painfull.

Hunter65,
The bruise on your bicep looks like you burned yourself with an iron with that point towards the shoulder...lol Sorry, I know it's sore, but couldn't resist.


Stan,

my wife is guilty of going out to feed the horses in her flappers when the ground is dry. I have tried til I'm blue in the face to convince her not to, but I'm afraid she will only heed my warning after her foot/feet look like Hunter65's arm or worse.

I didn't even get to go visit the horses yesterday since I had to tow my M-I-L's truck to her mechanic as it has gone past my knowledge base or time constraints. My 21 yr old daughter did, however, tack up Little Man and take him for a quick trek around the neighborhood and got back to the gate about the same time as we were getting back from delivering the truck.

My mom is in town visiting for 2 weeks and loves the place. She has sat out at the pond fishing while looking over in the pasture watching the horses. Yep, I have way too mush estrogen(sp?) in my house. Wife, 2 daughters, M-I-L, and a my mom to me and my grandson when he isn't at his dad's.
