I was showing my husband the knot in my neck, he said, yeah, it didn't keep you from bouncing up and down on that horse Saturday did it? I told him, nope, and I won't this Saturday either! Going to Lake Waurika with friends. They have a nice 13 mile trail around the lake (and over(bridge))

Had an off day today. The farrier came, but apparently my girl wouldn't hold still for him (I had a long day at school, so couldn't get there til later. I had waited for him all of Spring Break, so he can't complain ;) ) and got a cut in her neck (no idea how) that I had to clean out and patch up. She did do well when I gave her a bath, but both were running around while I tried to feed, acting like they couldn't figure out how to get in their stalls

To end the day, my cat left something that I don't even know if it is diarrhea or vomit over the office floor. I got him some wet food to sooth DH being gone. He loves it, cries for it, but I guess I have to get him off of it until I can see if that is what caused the mystery substance on the floor. *sigh*

I have a feeling this won't be a fun week...

I've been a horse owner for 2.5 weeks! I'm a returnee to the horse world after a much too-long break. After the last 6 months leasing a horse to make sure it fit back in my life, I've now aquired a 2 year old AQHA gelding. I'll admit I'm eager to ride him, but there is plenty of grazing & groundwork to keep us both busy while he does some growing.
Welcome, Cyn (or C25) .. we'll just pen a nickname for ya!

Yes.. pictures are a requirement .. *wink*

At least you have good spirits about it! Lol Did you call your Doc and get some Tamiflu? If not, DO IT!

Worked with Lil again in trailer, she followed me in like she never had a problem. But, when I walk out, she backs out faster than I can get around her. She doesn't stop at me trying to stop her with the lead. I don't want to tie her yet, just in case she has a fit. It does have quick release ties... but.... don't want anything to upset her going in there! I can leave her standing there, walk forward out the the side door (stock trailer) and walk around and shut the door. But can't walk out beside her! So, still more time/training in the trailer.. Then onto the 2 horse! Lol

Great job with Lil, Nu! Sometimes it just takes patience. :) Here's a little scary story from last Thursday. I was taking Henny to the vet for his acupuncture and we got the trailer hitched, him in no problem. The truck pulls forward 5 feet and the trailer POPS OFF. I'm already outside the truck so I'm running to grab his lead cause he's loose in the trailer while the chains are holding the trailer from hitting the ground. I got Henny out, who so appropriately launched himself out the trailer, and tied him to the fence. My friend and I got the trailer up and back onto the hitch and made dang sure it was SECURE. Then I got Henny and he loaded up like the little pro he is after standing in that see-sawing trailer. It all happened in a matter of 5 minutes and I am so proud of my little boy. <3 Thank God for chains and thank God it happened there and not on the road. I'm proud of me and my friends as well because we did not panic. It was like we had already done it a million times.

Aaaanyways, anyone else get that thunderstorm last night? I woke up to thunder at 7. Checked on Henny this morning and he was happily munching away on his hay, but he was soaked bahaha. Looks like we just got enough to wet the ground.

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

No rain for us, at least not that I know of. So far so good on trailer issues for us. The biggest thing was 2 blowouts on the way home from childress with 4 horses in a stock trailer. Thank goodness for family!
My friends new horse pulled back on the rope, broke the latch, rolled under the slant gate and out of the trailer. Then ended up with his back left hock under the corner of the trailer. It was the darndest thing I had ever seen.
