Good luck oh vair oh and we want to see plenty of pictures , ribbons and trophies in person at the meet and greet.
Speaking of meet and greet.
The administrator has yet to respond to our request for permission to use the logo of the forum or how we can obtain a copy of the image.
May I suggest that we choose one of the tshirts without the logo for now so we can get the shirts printed. We are looking at about a month to go.
That gives us plenty of time in case there is a problem.
our good friend cynical has gotten a qoute within budget so we might as well get the ball rolling. Shalom

{{{hugs}}}TBJ you are in a tough situation right now. I'm so sorry, we have loved your stories and pics of Romeo, but it is true what others have said... He may find a wonderful new owner, so we'll hope for that.
Hey tomorrow's Friday and I have three days off work, haven't had two off in a row since spring break so I plan on a trail ride one day and then will probably get manic about housecleaning and then spend some time Sunday with my mother and brothers. My batteries definitely need recharging!
Shared videos in my classes today of Zach Sobiech, his "last days" video and him performing "Clouds". He passed on Monday. He is truly an angel and I think that Clouds will become one of my all time fav songs, right up there with "it's a beautiful world"
Ahem.. Back to horses.. The paint mare in my pasture looks like she will foal in another few days. Her owners are out of town. Tried to take pics this morning but it was too dark at 5:30. She has definitely dropped but not that loose under her tail yet.
It is a full moon this weekend so we'll see what happens!

TBJ, did Romeo have more than one vet check with more than one vet? I remember he didn't test out sound but I don't remember much more.......I'm so sorry. I just went thru this with my BFF who just rehomed her lab that she'd raised from a puppy and had for 7 years - she can't take him with her to TN. That one horse I had who broke my hip made me sad when I sold him even tho I wanted to kill him at the same time but he got a good home - I really worried about that for a long time b/c he was 'special' (as in not many brain cells to work with) and I worried for a long time that he was going to end up with some rough person who wanted to 'cowboy him up' and wreck him.

My pony's dam was a mean little heifer - I got her when she was 15 yrs old and never been ridden. She was just a pet (fed treats and allowed to get pushy) for a family whose children had moved on and she lived her entire life tethered to a tree in the front yard. I had her riding and driving within a week - put a couple of years into her (got a wonderful pony out of her) but couldn't ever get rid of her 'I'm on the same level or better than humans' attitude. My oldest daughter (who was 4 at the time) walked behind her while she was eating once and she kicked her right behind the ear. My daughter apparently spooked her and nearly got killed for it. She did that all the time to dogs and goats too, and purposely stomped a duck dead that crossed her path. She was just a 'beeyatch' to anything under 3 foot.

That was the first time I'd ever twisted a horse's neck and threw them down. I tied her head to her hind foot and left her there for a couple of hours while I regained composure. I found a lady that who wanted a flashy painted driving pony and she worked great with adults. That was one lucky pony. My daughter is lucky to be alive. An inch closer and that would have been a kill shot. But I still wonder - did they take good care of her? Did they remember that she was starting to show signs of Cushings and to body clip her and keep her cool in the summer? Did they remember to keep her off fresh green grass?

This was YEARS ago. I still wonder....you will too - you can't help it.

Let's talk meetup t-shirts! Please PM me with your preferred size and Iíll compile the list to share with DBA. Assume weíre going with a unisex, crewneck t-shirt. If you would prefer a womenís fitted style, let me know that size as well, and we'll see if itís feasible to get 2 different styles.

If you wish to share your real name (or whatever you wish to go by!) for the meetup, let me know and I can also compile that info & ultimately share. Iím content to share my cell if anyone wants to have a contact for said event.

Assuming HF logo is off the table, so these are 3 potential options. Share your thoughts, ideas for changes, or your selection to print!
