Nickers-so sorry to hear of this outcome. I have learned when in the middle of things, to not say too much. Any way, you can say with further research, you have changed your mind about the clinic and your friends ideas? Ask her more of what she has done with the horse?

Stan-happy to see you are getting some rain, and that more is expected. Yayy!

We are about to get pic happy in the next couple of posts....I forgot to load the camera pics of the pasture as well as a few I took of the ducks so the DW is loading and emailing them to me now...

Got a few of the new pasture a few minutes ago so here they are...
This 1st one is looking over at the back of my barn from the new pasture..

There is a lot of clean up work to make it horse safe. Most of the boards laying there behind his barn have nails sticking up and will need to be removed. He had intended to burn it all, but my wife has deemed it useful for her raised gardens so it will be relocated. Lol

More to come as I get the emails.

Wow Roady lucky you (and your horses).

Stan I pay $525 board and while it would help in a mortgage we have looked at buying our own place. We have a mortgage on our townhouse here in town and are trying to sell our 10 acres about 3.5 hrs out of town but even then we are looking at $1,000,000 for a livable 5 acre property any where within 45 mins of the city. Prices here are outrageous.

With Grace awesome news on the show and good on you for trailering.

Nicker so sorry about the horse, I would be devastated too. I think its really odd that she had that excuse. I think if you are willing to try natural horsemanship (or whatever) is a good thing. It means you are trying to do the best for the horse ya know? At least you want to try something.

Oh yeah, arm still lumpy and now sore as feeling is coming back.

There are 4 ponds on the property. 3 are up there close to that small shelter and the big old barn then one at the very back of one of the pastures. All of them are stocked with fish..

Ok, here are the ducks and I think I will wait awhile longer to post Boo's injury photos and wait for some that show considerable improvement..Healing is always slow when the injury is this bad.







Just so happened I was standing where we normally feed them at when taking the last pic. This shows them heading for the bank ahead of mom expecting food. She has shown no aggression towards us being close to the babies, but as soon as Dolly, my puppy, came too close she went after her hard. Lol

The horses will be the lucky ones. I find it adding more work on me to upkeep more property that they will be roaming on. I have not been able to ride since Boo got injured due to my short amount of time after work to get everything done in time to be able to ride.

I have a week worth of clean up on that property before releasing the horses on it to graze. If the weather cooperates.

DW sent me this pic as she was bringing in a sq. Bale for Boo's stall. Gems decided to check out the navigational cockpit of the bloody contraption.

Here is a link to a video of Hunter yesterday when we put him out in the field for the first time this year. I missed most of him tearing around as I ran to get my camera.
