    Had a "fun" evening yesterday. Everything was perfect yesterday afternoon. Took a ride on my "greenie" (don't know why I call him that still because he's doing beautifully). Weather was gorgeous, no wind, Rascal responded well. My daughter gets off the bus and of course sees me out there and promptly wants to join in. So we saddle her boy up and we go out together for another hour. I'm still on Rascal. Then we get in as the sun sets, I mess around with one of Rascal's feet for a while as his overgrowth is starting to chip. So I trim him up a little. I'm just about ready to let everyone go for dinner when Rascal decides to buckle right there, still tied up. CRAP. I get him up, walk him around, and all he wants to do is lay down. Everything changed in seconds. Why the heck he suddenly begins to colic on me, I have no idea. He hadn't even eaten his feed yet. Nothing was different. He rode great. What gives???? Of course he wanted no part of water or hay. I would offer just to see how bad he was getting, and he refused everything of course. So I spend the next 2-3 hours walking him. I had to leave him a few times because as the devil would have it, this goes on in the middle of our evening/homework/dinner routine and remember, I have 6. Hubby works late. Every time I check on Rascal, he's on the ground. I finally get everyone in bed and go out there and get pissy with him and made him move out pretty good on my training lead. He stops in the middle of a full trot, squats like a mare in heat, and starts pooping. Hallelujah!!!!!! We have poop! Only parents and horse owners can appreciate a good poop when things get hairy. He almost immediately starts doing better. I didn't feed him anymore but he actually started nibbling on some hay strands the others had left behind. So yea. That was my night. This morning he acts like nothing ever happened. Kids and animals!!!! They are the source to all gray hair I tell ya.

    Mamma, I bet it's this weather. It got really cold really fast and it's about to get warm really fast, too. Poor guy, glad to hear he's doing better.

    Wow mammak, what a night! Glad it ended well and he is back to himself today:)
    My best friend and I went to see Josh Groban last night at the American Airlines Center. Her dh got her tickets for her birthday. I have to say, it was a great show, even though I'm not really into classical music.

    Hello friends! This crazy Texas weather is wrecking havoc on my sinuses and I'm currently in an epic battle against a cold. :(. I'm at home resting (and bored out of my mind).

    On the horse front, our family made the difficult decision to move Acey to a new boarding facility. We met with our current BO and gave our notice on Wednesday. Acey will be moving mid-December. It's bitter sweet because we have been at this barn for 3 years and it was our first horse home. But, our new barn is going to be wonderful. They have a lot more boarders my daughter's age as well as offering 5 star care at reasonable prices. (I will actually be saving money!)

    The drama with my old BO has already begun. Luckily, she is not saying any of it directly to us...but we're hearing things through the grapevine. I just want what's best for our horse and my daughter, so I'm going to do my best to stay out of it!

    I hope everyone has a great weekend and manages to get some riding time in! It's supposed to be gorgeous on Sunday.

    Horsemom when someone starts to tell you something the old BO supposedly said...... tell them you are not interested.
    Who cares what she says. After mid Dec she wont matter.
    The person relaying the information just wants to drag you into the drama.
    Tell them to Save the Drama for your Mama. Then smile and go back to doing whatever you were before the gossiping busybody decided to bother you. Sooner or later the whole crew will get the message. Shalom
