Saw a man tonight about a black horse....liked the dun! Lol

I did all the little tricks you all suggested....THANK YOU!!! This was VERY helpful, and opened the sellers eyes on the black horse a bit too! (It's new to their barn. He's a trader, but we've known the family for eons!).

The dun was quiet on the ground, so I said, if you want to sell this horse, you're going to have to take me trail riding on it! yeah for me, I stood up for what I want! Lol

So....maybe this weekend. It was pouring here, so we skipped that part. He wasn't even planning on selling this horse, has had it for over a year....but I spotted it....more than what I wanted to spend, but my research is proving that my price range only brings horses with "baggage"

Vet came, suggested putting Rainn on steroids to calm her itch and make her comfortable...and then we go from there and look at allergies. Gave her a Bededine bath, and considering the selson blue shampoo bath tomorrow. Also looking for topical stuff to help until the roids kick in. Wish us luck!

Nice trailer critter!

Hunter, gosh scary! Thank goodness your daughters place was saved and everyone is safe. Very scary!!!!

Have a good night everyone!

Oh my Hunter! I am glad your daughter is safe and sound.

NickerMaker - good luck with the dun horse. It sounds like it could be a good one.

The outside of the barn is almost done! It is looking great. I will post pics once the crew is gone.

Howdy all.
Busy group here! I like it.

I had plans to go riding at a local state park on Sunday, BUT, no truck to pull my trailer with. :(

Not sure if I updated, but after numerous discussions and e-mail, and my well kept repair receipts, the other insurance company finally agreed to fix my pickup. Yay! Pretty much told them if they wanted to consider mine totalled--then they best be finding me a replacement.

Lady hit me on March 25th. Shop called today to tell me my pickup was ready. Joy! Went to get t and didn't travel 2 miles til the poor thing made so much jerking and rear end racket it felt like parts were being strewn in the road.

I am livid.

Sigh.

Nvr, the rear end makes an awful metallic grinding sound and it jerks all over. Gah.
Those parts were all replaced, so it should not be doing that. :(
New axel, springs, shocks, wheels, etc.
Good grief.
Pretty obvious they didn't test drive after putting it back together.

When driving in regular rear wheel drive, it feels 'tight' and 'jumpy' and bogged down. When I tried AWD, it jerked all over and made noise. 4 high--worse. 4 low--horrible.

The differential is no good, I am sure.

Back to the shop it went.

I am getting really fed up with driving a rental pickup that I can't tow with.

I just want my 3/4 ton pickup fixed and back how it was. :(

Sorry to whine. Thanks for listening.

Horse skin itch do you have a insect collar on the horse. I used a natural insect/tick collar on Stella. The effects made her unridable for months over two summers. Took the second summer to get to the bottom of the problem. I now wash them with a medicated shampoo. Free and lovely. If its mild enough for me its O/K for the horse.

The only one that even compares is the 3rd one from bottom, but her back is much longer.

I already sent a reply, but don't see it. The only one who remotely resembles her is the 3rd one from bottom, although her back is much longer, and she is MUCH thinner.
