    Yummy!! LOL.

    Im not looking forward to doing that. My mom always took care of that part of the horse keeping. My horse smelt so strong that it lingered on her hands after washing them. I have to keep an eye on Big Boys cause he once swelled up like an eggplant. Blah!!

    Smrobs you can come do Big Boys if you'd like! I wont mind :)

    This thread is a peaceful haven after a few rough days.

    1 1/2 hour drive this morning ... 2 hours home. I'm exhausted.

    TG, I hope everything works out with DH and DD.

    Nu, I would have killed someone. Crazy drivers!

    SM, Henny is one of those "Ohhh yeeeaaahhh" kind of horses about getting his sheath cleaned He is absolutely hilarious. If I have him tied up by his stall, he'll bite the wall! But I actually just cleaned him out a bit a couple days ago loose in the paddock. I got a couple weird stares from two of the boarders, both of which own geldings so should know what I'm doing but whatevsss.

    Yikes Nu how scary! Glad you are a quick thinker and made it safely. Also, I'm jealous of all your riding lol!

    TG, how was your first day?! Sorry for the added family drama stress. It will all blow over though :)

    Kiara, any word back from the vet? 14 mos is an awful long time! Yikes she's gotta be miserable!


    The girls had a great first day of school. Big changes for Leah being in 5th now, she changes classes! It felt weird to be home all by myself, and I realized this is the first time I have been alone in my house! That's just crazy.

    Oh, and you know you're a horse person when you go out to have a quick visit with the horses....and completely burn dinner because you forgot it was even cooking. Yep, that was me tonight. Gave lovies and cookies, came inside to grab my phone (for pictures of course) and as soon as I opened the door the burning smell hit me. Dang it!

    EMS, Kitten is a 5th grader this year too. :). She loves having 3 teachers and all her friends in her class. (6 of my 9 scouts are in the same class.)

    Tonight, Kitten and Acey walked the cones bareback and bridle less (just a halter and lead) for the first time. I'm seriously considering purchasing a true bit less bridle because they did so well!

    Hey everyone... Nu how scary, you've got a good head on your shoulders, thank goodness nobody got hurt! Love the new avatar of Kit.
    Had a smooth beginning of the new school year today and am looking forward to the rest of the week. Didn't do much with the horses this evening, just messed with them in their pasture. Eli has become very demanding of my attention. We did some "liberty" work tonight LOL. If he's going to stick to me like glue might as well do some ground work, right?

    Happy Tuesday!

    My new saddle has me feeling like a complete newbie, lol. I've finally figured out that I have two full length latigos because it's a bulkless/balanced ride rigging system. Something I've never heard of. I like the lack of bulk under the leg and the security of the "W" wrapped latigos in this 3 way rigging-esqu setup, but the fact that I'm wrapping through holes in the leather skirt rather than metal D rings feels wrong and a little scary :P And having to do so on both sides is kind of a PITA, but I did purposely seek out a close contact saddle so I'm going to have to learn to do something new.

    I am not going to ever clean sheaths myself. I have the vet do it once a year and it is one of the reasons I prefer mares. I have never attempted to do it and getting Eddie or Flame to relax long enough to do it is impossible.
    So the vet gives them a shot.
    Get it done at the same time we do the annual shots and coggins. Makes for an expensive vet visit. Now with Sam and Cassiuss it is going to get more expensive. Shalom

    I can do it on 3 of mine - they don't mind me looking for beans, either. But I've yet to try it on #4 Arab myself - I'm not so sure he wouldn't smack me with his hind. The dentist does him while he's sedated. Easier.
