Thanks HCG :) we have runs like this now and then... whenever we get a new horse invariably SOMETHING goes wrong. When I got Monty [my 17yo gelding] he came off the truck ok, but then his off fore swelled up to 3 times its normal size and I couldn't ride him for a week! [this due to injury because of the truck driver, we presume... he fell twice on the transport truck and this horse has been trucked and trailered up and down the state with no issues so SOMETHING triggered it]

Another pony, 5 minutes in too lush a pasture [a couple of weeks after we got him, and he had LOST weight] turned him over from chronic laminitis to a mild acute bout. Took us 2 weeks to get him moving sound again and 18 months to rehab his feet to the point where they looked like good feet... was sound throughout except for the bout of chronic though.

The coming 2yo I sold a few months ago came to me perfectly healthy but within days had nicked herself and cost me stress... thankfully no vet fees though because it was only a minor wound.

And now Magic. Rain scald, thrush, her stifle issues, and the abscessed gland under her jaw. Not to mention she was very nearly untouchable when I first took her on, it took me a week to get a halter on her and a month to be able to catch her easily in the pasture. Yesterday with the vet was a big breakthrough with the mental issues though - she let a MAN touch her without her having a massive panic attack. Big deal!

Nice pictures, horsecrazygirl! Here is a pic of my horses. The top two are of my TWH...obviously, and the next three are the miniatures.

Blue eyed pony~ Wow, that's way too much bad luck. I hope Magic heals well!

Brandy!

Tamale; Her hairdo is pretty silly, but hey, I was bored! Now the water bottle was NOT me...my brother did that.

This is Punkin. It's hard to tell just how little the minis are, but if someone were standing next to them, you'd see they're pretty tiny and cute!! But they are VERY strong!

Thanks HCT :)

she had her first [successful] shot of Pentosan today... hopefully the Pentosan will promote joint health and improve her stifles.

Someone suggested ultrasound on her bad stifle... I wonder if that would be more accurate a diagnosis than x-ray? Ultrasound shows soft tissue damage so it might show any issues in the cartilage better than x-ray would. It would also be more definitive regarding the entire joint capsule, and the tendons/ligaments within and around.

FML... my brother is sick. As in violently puking sick. I'm going to have to set up a tent out in the pasture to get any sleep tonight, and chances are, I'm going to get whatever he has :/

How could i have done anything about this? and does anyone have any support. He isnt seriously hurt and the mares are safe as well. But he has stitches and staples and big gashes on his back, though they are healing nicely, i just need some support before the vet gets here this afternoon. (incase the news is bad..)

thanks horsecrazyteen!
blue eyed pony that is a lot of drama you have with the horse.
i want to go riding sooo bad. but i can't find a time and ugh its annoying.
i keep telling my parents that if they just buy me a horse then we won't have this problem.but then the stupid economy and money and blah blah blah we just can't afford one right now.:(

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

lol HCG drama? constant state of affairs here! Nothing ever goes according to plan. I get tired of it sometimes but it keeps life interesting.

3 hours since the end of the big Telethon this weekend and I'm still in shock over the total of money they raised. Nearly $17million is not a total to be sneezed at and every cent of every one of those dollars will go towards medical research to help sick kids. Western Australia is proud to be home to the best children's hospital in the country and one of the best in the world... and with the new hospital being built we'll have even better facilities for the future!
