    Hello from Michigan

    Posting my intro here as instructed :)

    I live in metro Detroit and own a 2001 palomino paint gelding named Hunk. We used to show heavily on the open circuit, but haven't shown in a few years. Life has gotten a little busy, but I'm happy just to ride when I can and spend time at the barn. I competed in western and huntseat events, though I have gotten lazy and usually just ride western these days.

    I've actually been nursing Hunk back to soundness, so I haven't ridden in over a month now. He contracted a Potomac-like illness, which triggered laminitis that lingers today. I actually found this forum while searching for Softride boots, so if anyone happens to read this and is selling some size 6 boots, please PM me! Any other laminitis-related advice is also welcome. He's currently on isox and wearing some loaned Softrides that are a tad too large. We're past the inflammatory stage and just waiting for the healing at this point. I'll consider myself lucky if he is sound within 6 months.

    So anyway, enough about me. I'll surf around and see what's up!

    Got the Michigan shore to shore on my bucket list. Five day ride across the state from Lake Huron to Lake Michigan, soon as I get a horse I trust to make it.

    That would be a heck of a ride! Definitely start on the Huron side and head to Michigan. If you start on the west coast, you might not want to leave! Hehe

    Here are a few favorites of my guy :)

    Hope the pic sizes are ok. I'll shrink if not.

    Hello from a fellow Michigander! Your horse is quite a looker

    Hi! Your horse is very handsome. Good luck in his recovery.

    I'm from the opposite side of the state. I'm just south of Kalamazoo in a city called Schoolcraft.

    Joe, That ride sounds amazing! I'll have to look into it!

    The MI shore to shore is a managed AERC ride, I got the impression it is east to west , but have to look it up again. Would be one heck of a week though.
