    Oh and cynical don't worry this is the Texas thread. No one here is going to be critical of a yearling that is built downhill.
    We are not going to ask if you have had him gelded, why you purchased him, or if you are going to keep and cherish him for life till death do you part.
    He is nice and being butt high is normal for a growing horse.
    Notice I didnt refer to anything in the background of the picture that my eagle I might suspect is neglect. LOL Shalom

    Seriously?? You didn't notice that the 3746th blade of grass from the right in the back by the trailer appears to be a toxic weed?? I'm calling the authorities!



    You pretty much nailed all the busy-bodies' issues in that one paragraph! *snort*

    Y'all are too funny, too bad it's true!!! Cy, he looks gorgeous to me and I didn't even look at the background..... I like to look at the horses color and conformation the read what people say about that. If they start on a tear, I just go to the next comment.

    Random question: do ya'll use hoof oil/conditioner? My boy is in a dirt paddock and his hooves look good at the moment (I've only had him there 2 months, of course.) I don't recall using anything on the stalled show horses when I moved to TX, but my MI & OH pastured horses benefitted from periodic Hooflex or similar...

    I've used Keratex hoof hardener on Henny's feet but that's only to help build up sole. I have him on my vet's hoof supplement currently and I swear he has the prettiest frogs!

    Disregard that last question. I just read a a few articles on the topic, including this: Hoof Dressings: What Studies Show | TheHorse.com

    I do swear by biotin for horses with cracked or white hooves (or humans wanting longer nails & hair,) but that's not a topical application so it doesn't count in this context!

    My pony got bit by a snake - struck twice, in the pecs! Crazy! I didn't see it happen, just recognized the fang marks, one set a little lower than the other. Glad it wasn't venomous. All four punctures cleared up within a couple of days and one is still being a bit oozy and puffy so I'll keep an eye on that for crackly skin or stink that means staph. But I think we will be okay. The spots sure do itch really bad - he just LOVES somebody to scratch it but of course that just makes them swell again.

    I've never been bit by a fanged snake, only regular snakes but I know how nasty of an infection you can get even from the little ones. I've read that some poisonous snakes can choose whether to release their venom when biting and sometimes they just bite dry if they are trying to just chase off a nosey pony for example. He's lucky he didn't get bit in the face. He must have been in a weird position for it to get him on the chest - like the snake must have been on higher ground maybe. He has been eating grass along the bank of the pond which is neck deep in vines and overgrowth so this doesn't surprise me.

    I guess it is that time of year to watch where you step.

    Yesterday morning I found a 2 ft long snake dead. I don't know if the cats or the guineas killed it but they just earned some points with me. I detest all reptiles and will not touch one. Shalom
