    Never!! I live in Houston and driving to Santa Fe where my vet is ensures we encounter a lot of "donkeys" on the road. People not letting us over, people cutting in front of us at the last second. I swear, one person cut in front of us in the middle of an INTERSECTION and then slammed on his brakes. I swear to god, if my horse had actually been in the trailer(we left him at the vet for a water deprivation test) I would have gotten out of that truck and pulled them by their hair out of their's. You do NOT cut in front of someone hauling a trailer. It's a 5K truck hauling a 3K pound trailer with a 600 pound horse in it. We cannot stop on a dime. My brain damaged clutsy yearling cannot stop on a dime. If you try or do cut in front of us, expect a loud objection by truck horn up your a$$.

    Anywaaaays I've been in a horrible mood this past week and even worse this morning. So I obviously needed some horsey therapy. I went out to the barn and spent a few hours spoiling Henny. I gave him a bath, cleaned his sheath, and let him graze on some green green grass. He very much enjoyed it and so did I! :)


    Can this boy grow some hair or what? Look how long his memory braid is getting <3


    Henny is a majestic beast


    But he really is photogenic when he wants to be! This boy knows how to make me happy like no one else could. I am very blessed to call him mine.

    Mammalatja, our barn is having a play date next weekend. You should come out. It's lots of fun (and just off 121 in Blue Ridge). Our daughters are close to the same age. :)

    Oooooo, horsemom I could be convinced. We'll see how tomorrow goes. I would love to take my mare out to get hauled if nothing else. We haven't done anything major for 3 years. They let strangers off the street show up at your barn? I also need to check the trailer and see if it's up to it. We bought it used this past spring and were hoping to fix it up some but of course it's been sitting idle. I will message you if I seriously want to take you up on your invite.

    Hey Ya'll, have any of you heard of a drug called "fluphenazine"? My vet gave my daughter's horse a shot last June. We had a rough time at District with the heat and he ended up at the vets on fluids for 2 days. He suggested this to help calm his nerves so he would drink at the shows. Now I finally checked it out online and I'm a little nervous! He is getting 1cc every 3 weeks. No problems yet, but worse I think it's illegal, and yep we have a show next weekend.

    Hauling in traffic... Can be nerve wracking! I don't let anyone talk to me when I'm tacking up my horse, hooking up the trailer, and especially not when hauling... When not at work I tend to be pretty ADD LOL. It's usually very early in the morning on the way to a trail ride, and a weekend day, then I don't drive over 50 mph so everyone passes me on the freeway. Usually driving out of town rather than through. Funny, when we were talking about the new trail south of Dallas my first thought was... Oh no, I'm not hauling through Dallas! But it is just off I 20 so I wouldn't be driving through town :)

    Mammakatja, all you need is an up to date coggins for any horse you bring. We love new riders! Usually we do barrels, poles and two other events. In October, we add a costume contest. :).

    Get your vet to write you a note and let show management know. Drugs are only illegal at shows if you are using them for an illegal purpose (although certain drugs are banned altogether, like ace). If you let them know it's for a medical condition they will usually allow it. You might also ask firstly if they are doing drug tests. Most of the time they don't.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend. I had a busy one. Decided to give up on growing out my hair and went back to my pixie and Ihad forgotten how much I love it. My hubby says he has his tinker bell back. Great riding this weekend and love that he weather is cooler. Got o walk my boder collie bailey at 6:30 tonight. Did wake up saturday with blisters all over my hands as feet. Being the good nurse I am I blew it of but it was worse today. Went to the walk in clinc and ended up getting a steroid shot and oral prednisone. Ready for next weekend going to the ranch to camp and ride.

    Well this picture should say it all. We are now the proud owners of 13 year old Jay. He is such a sweetheart. Unloaded him at our place, threw a halter on him and despite a strange place, strange horses, and septic sprinklers going, he was cool and calm as can be. He's perfect for my daughter. A little lazy and maybe not completely perfect conformation. He's also got an ever so slight parrot mouth. But I think it makes him cute and I already trust him completely. Can't wait to watch them grow together over the next couple of years.
