The stupidest things that freak horses out.

Yesterday, after pounding t-posts for one entire fence line (yay!) ...DH and I decided to pound some more posts .. and use a few trees .. to make a "run" off of Gunner's pen to give him more play room while we're home. We had some partial rolls of field fence and figured we'd use these.

Made our game plan, started rolling the field fence up to the pen area. Were any of ya'll aware that -- as safe as field fence is once you get it put up -- that while it is one the ground in rolls, it is a horse eating monster?!

DH got to witness the power of a (small) horse slamming himself against the pipe panels he's in trying to get away from these rolls of wire *rolls eyes* ...

Once Gunner calmed down (and by this I mean he's standing still, muscles twitching, covered in sweat, staring at the booger) DH says "What now?" I said "We build a fence and Gunner learns to deal with it. Go stand the wire roll up."

Ten minutes later, the horse is bored, we're stretching fence.

This morning, when we turned him into the new run, he sniffed and smelled, lay down and rolled, and then exploded! He loves his new run ... pics tomorrow ...

Gunner was only protesting that you werent using all your immense financial resources to build a wooden fence. Not wire. Hey he was probably thinking at the least you could do was pipe. But wire? Wire is cheap. Shalom

Yes, and leftover wire at that ... because currently all my extra funds are going into vet visits, medicine, and all-the-hay-a-bored-little-horse-can-eat.

On a good note, my chickens are starting to lay again, so human breakfast was free!

Good morning all. Didn't get any riding in on saturday. It was a bit too windy for my liking. I have bowling league tonight so that's like 3 days in a row I won't be riding :(. Oh well I will see my boy soon enough. Will just have to run some of his energy off him before I hop on.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Glad to know things are looking up for Gunner TG!! DBA, you can call him anytime but if he doesn't answer just leave him a message and he'll get back to you. He spends alot of time on his work phone.

CC, sorry to hear about your friends horse and rig, we'll definitely be keeping an eye out.

We had a very busy weekend so I didn't get online at all. Had a jam session at church on Friday night then a work day at the barn on Saturday (although I did manage to get some shopping in for some new work clothes). Then the fun started and I got some riding in. The church, lunch and back to the barn on Sunday till 10:00. Had to set up a pen in order to wean a calf and one of the boarders horse had a belly ache but she appears to be better this morning, thank goodness.

Got back from the show at 11pm last night. Lol surprisingly im not tired. Hahaha :) it went GREAT! Heres one of our videos, power and speed round, I won. Places were 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, 1st, 4th, 5th, 7th, classic 7th, champion. Hehe ended up Champion of the Low Child/Adult Jumpers and 7th in the classic when I had to trot to get my stirrup back. (he dodged for no apparent reason) The rest of my classes were fantastic and I learned a ton. Plus, our course designer was the OLYMPIC SHOWJUMPING COURSE DESIGNER!!!! And our announcer was from NBC! SWEETNESS! Couldn't be any happier with how everything went. :) and I can't wait for the next show. :)
