    Great photos. No. I didn't notice that some are duck and some geese.... since my mind had wondered trying to remember a good orange sauce recipe.

    AND... I didn't notice that the syringe was still intact. I do the same as you with used ones.

    Love the ducks!! And the geese of course. I am hoping to post some pics of my daughters neighbors new horse. The neighbor knows nothing about horses, but wanted one for her kids. I noticed right away there is something weird about this horses back. Her entire top line is completely straight and flat, no obvious place for a saddle, any saddle placed on her rides way up in the back. Her back is very long, and the only place she is not totally flat is a "bump" on her rump. Don't know if this is a fault, or she just needs more weight, she was very thin when they got her, and have put about 200 lbs on her. They live about 100 miles from me, and they don't have a digital camera. When I do get pics, I guess I will post them on critique my horse, but as for now, does anyone have any idea what I am describing? I don't believe I have ever seen a back like hers before. If anyone has pics of what I'm talking about, I would love to see them. The neighbor is anxious to find out why her back is like this, and why every saddle rides up on her.

    Sounds like she has a strong built up top line and maybe even a little over weight. Having no visible spine showing across the back is not a bad thing, infact having a flat back is desired in a horse. The saddle they are using sounds like it is too small for the horse. They need to get an experienced horse person or even better a saddle fitter to come out and explain to them what they need to get for both the horse and the rider.

    BOLDING MINE.

    I agree Roadyy! Sounds like the saddle fit is off and perhaps a good collar might be needed. Check the saddle pad too since some slip a lot. A girth pad might help also. As Roadyy is pointing out, to much movement of the saddle.

    I LOOK for a good solid straight back in a Paso Fino.

    I realize they are all side profile and not top views, but they are what I have available for you to compare to.

    I won't comment since someone here may own one or more of these. I liked .... one with a second runner up?

    So NOW you have to tell us about EACH photo and what you see. Good learning experience.

    Great photos everyone! Sereno your place is gorgeous!! Love your Bones too, super cute!!

    Called the vet in tomorrow. Rainn has some sort of skin issue. Her previous owners told me about it, but yow! She is ITCHY!!! She's scratching hair off and her bumm cheek is raw on one side. can't stand to watch her suffer....hopefully we can figure out what the issue is.....I have her on senior supplements. Thinking they would take care of various things....I notice a difference in her gait, it's helping with inflammation. Gimpiness is barely noticeable!!! but not the skin thing.

    Going to see a man about a horse tomorrow night also.....got our local trader looking.....also got a message from another friend that she found a TWH for sale. (A friend of a friend). But she says it's a bit heevy....so it needs light riding....will call on it...but....also, I know very little about TWHs. Thoughts on them? Temperament?

    I also have a call in to another trader.....to be honest tho, I kinda like it being quiet around the barn with just one horse right now, especially withy thes skin issues and until school lets out for summer.....but I don't want to let any stone unturned. . Ya just never know.....

    Have a good night all!
