Yeah, I never post when we're going out of town. My mom use to, but she has finally quit doing that. I have mine set to private, friends only also.

I'm really considering the ration balancer for my guys .. mostly because of Gunnie.

Also, ... magnesium ... do you test for these things, or do you just start the supplement and look for the difference?

I worked with GUnnie yesterday for the first time since he threw me .. I know .. bad me...

He was walking over canvas, walking up to it hanging on the fence blowin in the wind, and letting me rub him with it before we were through. I then lunged him for about 20 minutes.. direction changes (completely overreacts to these .. lol) and mostly at the trot.

I felt bad because he was dripping with sweat. Hosed him down, put him in the pasture. He bucked and RAN like a fool around the pasture twice.. came up to us, reared, pawed, and took off running again..

I'm such a pushover.. I'm going to use a timer and work him a full 30-45 minutes...

HE.IS.A.HANDFUL ....

Cat is one of those that is really active in the pasture also. She runs all the time! Or did until she got as big as a cow! lol, probably will again, when I let her back out in the pasture. She runs and bucks all day. But has never (knock on wood) bucked when I rode her. But, she has the fastest walk! Her short little legs will keep up with the tallest horses! She loves to go!
And, Kit is acting just like her, but that that could be being a baby also! she loves to run and buck. She's going to have a ball when I finally let them out into the pasture!
My paint mare wants that baby so bad! Still! Her new family is suppose to be picking her up this weekend, then I'll let Kit and Cat out, at least thru the day.

On an unrelated note, Henny is finally shedding again thanks to me worming him. Twice! Anyone else's horses not finish shedding out yet? Henny's the only one at my barn still holding onto his coat, besides an older gelding who I'm 99% sure has Cushings. He was shedding up a storm yesterday and practically melted when I brought out the curry comb LOL. That boy has always loved his scratches, especially on his chest, since he was a baby. He's still a baby, but he's loved it since he was a baby baby

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

Mine have all finished shedding out. Cat still loves her scratches. I was out giving her her's. Then started in on Kit. Kit scratched me back lol I went ahead and let them out in the pasture. Kit still doesn't know what to think without this little pen holding her back, Cat is LOVING it! She ran around and bucked for awhile, kit at her side. Other horses are just ignoring her! I'll keep watch though, just in case!
