    Just to show I do get on the horse now and again. First photo is having Bugs follow me around. And a couple of riding. He did well no hint of getting to excited and I did expect it. He is down on weight and needs some grass. But the rain has stopped.

    Great photos folks this is realy a great thread.

    But the one I am most impressed with, well second to me, is the chev What a year, they made them to last in 48. Visulise that truck with the V8 transplant all polished up, slightly lowered, good wheels, custom paint job and the horse float hooked on behind. Now that would be a real eye catcher. Just like all things of the 48 vintage.

    Sorry I didn't get on this weekend, but it was a full load.

    Corgi, I am truly sorry to hear your father has not waken yet. Your family will stay on my prayer list.

    PR, I hope you get a good outcome on your truck repairs and get it back on the road. To touch on something Stan mentioned, in the event the ins. Company does total it(if you had full coverage) you will have first option to buy it back from the ins. Company (in most cases) at a really cheap price then do the repairs on the cheap. I must admit I didn't read all of the updates on this thread and may have missed something on this and if so then I apologize.

    CW, good morning and happy trails.



    Update on Boo,
    We walked every length of fence on the property and could not find the scene of the accident. Then focused on properly caring for his wounds and keeping him as comfortable as possible in the stall. He does not like being stored up at all! Especially when he can't see the others when they go into the big pasture.

    Saturday I was doing some yard work in the nook on the back of the house and found the scene of the accident. Apparently the previous owners halfway covered the old septic tank without filling it in and he found the weak lid on it.

    Here are a couple pics off my phone and will have a few more pics from the camera later.. I felt so bad about not checking the property out better before turning them out to graze on the grass in the yard.




    I have been giving him a betadine bath every afternoon then covering the superficial scraps with corona then wrapping the left hind leg where the rug is gone to the tissue.
    I am hoping to get the salve in today that I ordered and start using it on the wound.



    Sorry for the novel and I probably should have posted this in the health section.

    Hi everyone! I haven't been to this forum in many months but am happy to see it is still going strong and the same familiar names! At the age of 48 last summer, I got my first horse, and so did my husband. His is a big beautiful 16.3 hh chestnut and white Appendix Paint gelding, age 14. Mine is a mare, 13, also an Appendix Paint, seal bay, and she was a rescue. After many months of ground work and getting her healthy and at an acceptable weight, and me recovering from surgery and an injury (not horse related) she and I are finally riding, and it has been so awesome

    Hi Koolio. I love your boxer! I have always had boxers and right now have an 8-year-old brindle female, Stella. They never get old and always have that fun puppy in them

    Wow everyone lots going on.

    Corgi big hugs to you and prayers for your dad. Your horse cracks me up love the face.

    Stan Bugs is great I love him, he is gorgeous! Nice to see you riding.

    Prairie I hope you get your truck fixed, it is certainly in fantastic shape!.

    Nickle look forward to see more picts of that mare, she is stunning!.

    I am finding myself in a quandry as to whether I should sell Hunter or keep him and hope that he outgrows some of his attitude. I did get on him yesterday - the first time I have done anything with him since he bit me. We are going to have to go back to basics on the ground work. My trainer offered to take him for a couple of weeks and tune him up, but I know ultimately that I need to do it for him to respect me. It has been almost 4 years since I adopted him and we have been through a lot and he is so darned cute I can't decide what to do. In some ways I just want a nice easy going friendly horse that wont bite me or...

    Here is a picture of my dads truck that he restored. Its a 1949 Doge 2 ton that he found on a farm on the prairies and restored. This is before he got the grill and visor back on. I wish I had a before picture.

    Woods-you have a couple of nice horses there-so glad you are enjoying them!

    Hunter-you have been through so much w/him, but that bite was totally unacceptable! He has lots of personality, but sometimes that can lead to being hard to get along with. Maybe a horse w/less energy/more training would be a better fit. Horses are expensive & we should enjoy our time w/them. If you decide to change horses, I'm sure you would get help from other members here to find a wonderful partner.

    Stan-really liked the pics of you riding Bugs. Both of you look relaxed & enjoying your time together.

    Love the pics of the older trucks-brings back many memories of different times.

    Just talking with my trainer now. She is going to take him for a few weeks and work with him and I will be going out to work with him as well, I need to get his respect again.
