    Dba .. not sure .. I thought so .. but now I'm not sure .. so I'm not guessing, will let the vet look at it.

    I do think there was a few days where I wasn't getting adequate medicine in the eye .. he's settled back in and I think we're doing good now ...

    I hope all goes then and the Vet gives him a good chance of clearing the fungus from his eye.
    I was worming the horses yesterday. Usually most are ok with the wormers. Not so yesterday they all tossed their heads and played tag with the syringe.
    I even bought the apple flavored ones.
    I think they were telling me in their own way that "Aint nobody got time for this" Shalom

    Happy Friday Y'all!!!

    Glad you joined us JeniTex! TG, I hope you get a good report today!!! DBA, all the horses were a little froggy yesterday, I think it had something to do with the front that moved through. Our little girl was VERY froggy in her stall last night, it was hilarious:)

    I was going to ride my mare last night but she did so well with her work out on the lunge line, I decided not to as a reward (and it was getting late)! The ground work we've been doing is paying off and I'm sooooo excited!

    Kctop I now have over 8 horses within a few miles of you. All the horses there and near Paris have been very energetic for days now. When they are running and bucking in a pasture I just want to be able to throw a saddle on them and feel that energy.
    Oh and I got your PM. When is a good time to contact your husband? Shalom

    Well, no better. No worse, but no better. He did say that there were visible blood vessels at the bottom of the eye ... a good sign, and typically precedes an acceleration in healing. I did admit that I questioned my ability to consistently and properly medicate up 'til about 5 days ago .. when I developed a technique that seems to be working.

    Bottom line .. we continue for another 2 weeks .. back to atropine once a day .. and if no better in two weeks, we talk about injecting the eye with a liquid fungal med.

    He assured me that we are not currently in any danger of losing the eye or anything, so we trudge forward.

    Hey guys - a friend of ours got her truck and trailer stolen (with her horse inside) from a Tractor Supply in Porter earlier this afternoon....can you all keep an eye out? Here's the info - the police think they will probably try to ditch the horse and sell the truck and trailer:

    Horse is a tri color Paint, 14.3hh named Cat

    Carrots and potatoes are easy to grow - both need to be started mid Feb.

    Carrots and potatoes both need soil that tends to be more dry than wet - soil won't hold water in other words - and they like MOUNDS not raised beds or flat areas. One yr old horse manure (2 parts) mixed with a little (1 part) sand and/or topsoil/light clay will grow them really well. If they get rained on and the soil won't drain and they sit wet for more than 2-3 days, they won't make it. Maybe that helps? You can grow them in the ground or raised beds, but the soil has to be broken up at least 18 inches so it will drain. Mounds are easier.

    Here's my bible - Vegetable Resources it is nice to have someone tell you how to do things that refer to our state and not some other place across the continent...

    That's sad - the rig and horse is still missing. Video camera from TSC shows her parking her rig, locking her truck and going inside. Another vehicle comes up, passenger gets out and within 3 minutes, both vehicles leave the parking lot.

    I hope they got the info/plate/good description off the other vehicle.
