It was a long day today.....getting things done around the house, shopping for a big cook out tomorrow and a playday in which my gaited boy did fabulous! Oh, not to mention, first turnout into the big pasture for our new girl, in which she was doing great when we checked on her tonight! So proud of her calm, level head:)

Henny is five months old today! Still half a stallion, teehee. He is always just so well behaved. Getting bigger and darker every day!

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Good morning yall! :_(

I just saw the most horrible scene on the way to take my son to school. Right down the road an SUV hit a horse. I came up over the hill and saw an ambulance and a police car with lights on. They were on the other side of the road but I proceeded to slow down since other vehicles were having to come into my lane to go carefully by. Then I noticed something laying on the shoulder which I actually thought to be a person. Upon getting closer I realized it was a horse with a bright red halter on with everything on display. I had no control over my emotions. I clasped my hand over my mouth and began to ball. The SUVs front in was caved in and it had stuff all over it. Thank goodness my 5 yr old didnt see he was to busy looking at the ambulance. He was very concerned to way I was crying though. I tried to suck it up. Hes such a sweet caring boy cause when we got to his school he jumped out of the truck and started to do a little dancing jig cause he said it would make me laugh, which it did.

I apologize for this being so heavy for this early in the day. I just had to tell people who would care. (My husband cared but called me a girl and said "you dont even know the horse." JERK Lol)

OMG - that is AWFUL...

The owners are not going to enjoy getting that phone call either - especially if it was a beloved horse or one of their kids' horses! I hope the people who hit it are okay - that could be a lawsuit in itself.

There are a hundred kinds of 'not good' attached to that.....

UGH - my morning didn't go so great either - nearly got hit head on with my kids in the car on a gravel road - perpetrator(that's my NICE term for him) barely got control of his vehicle going around a gravel corner and missed me by inches - splattered us with gravel - we had to pull over and puke for 10 minutes (well, felt like it anyway)...the guy didn't even stop, just kept going at a high rate of speed.

I lost a horse to the road when I was in Jr. High. We had just moved back to Texas, from California. Dad dug out the cattle guard, and put the horses in the pasture. The mare walked across the cattle guard, got hit by a car, tore off one of her front legs, she walked back across to go "home" the highway patrol wouldn't shoot her because she was on private property, so dad had to do it. We had had her since she was weined off of her mother, and she was at least 5 yrs old then. He said it was like shooting one of his kids! :( She lay down at the end of the driveway until the large animal disposal could take her away, for several day. I would not go to school, I couldn't walk by her everyday. My parents didn't make me either.

We never depended on a cattle guard again after that!

Amazingly enough, I made it 20 years with horses before I had to put one of my own down. The crazy thing is, now all the horses I have are 9 years old - that means they will all be geriatric together - this will be quite an adventure!

I will have to change my farm name to something along the lines of
"Retirement home for old Nags"....I'll have to specify that we don't take humans, of course - I have a neighbor who would offer up his wife in a heartbeat...
