    My horse just looked at that horse as if she had lost her mind. Being so buddy sour that she ditched the person that cared about her most likely got her a ticket to the sale barn.

    Wow...so sorry that Pam was injured. I was so hoping it was just some bruises and lumps and bumps. How long has she had this idiot of a horse?

    Nancy, so sorry about your friend. My mom has that and it is so sad. It is a rough go and I will be praying for your friend and the family.

    Denise, I don't know if this will help, but I have enclosed an e-mail contact for Brenderup parts.

    Thanks Amy. I spoke to Andy the other day. He can order me a new ramp but it would cost approximately $2,000 by the time it is shipped here. .

    He was shocked that one as new as mine had issues of rot. I swear I always get the crappy one of anything. If there was one freaking ramp out of the 900 a year they shipped to the US I guarantee I got that one.

    I am going to take pictures of the ramp as they tear it apart and post it on my blog for anyone who might have the same problem.

    Still not a happy camper about my Brenderup but I am hoping it is better and stronger when they get through with it. As long as I can haul my Biscuit Man around safely I will be a happy camper.

    Sorry about Pam. Buddy sour issues are such a pain in the butt. I can't take Flicka anywhere with me if I am going to ride Oreo without her. Leave her behind, he is perfect.

    Denise, sorry about your trailer. I had never heard of Brenderup until this forum. You should check to see if anyone else is having problems with ramp rot on your year trailer. I am surprised that Sundowner doesn't have a group lawsuit over their trailers with the bad steel frames.

    QOS, I had the wood in my ramp replaced this summer as it had rotted out....I paid the local trailer shop $500 to do it.

    You know, I think they used something besides plain plywood in the new KB ramp. It SEEMED way lighter, but the old one may have been wet a LONG time!! It has been 8 or so years, so my memory is a bit fuzzy.

    Yeah, sounds like a good plan. Many Brenderup owners replace the floor with wood, I would do what Gunslinger suggests, replace the material in the ramp with wood and paint or stain it.
    You can get good traction by adding some tread or even wood strips.

    Phewwww...finally caught up on this thread!! I've been gone for a bit, enjoyed all your pictures and stories about psycho women, horses, and everything in between.

    Celeste-sorry about your friend Pam. I hope she recovers quickly and decides that the horse is not worth getting killed over. I had to let one go like that...after being launched into a wooden fence, flipped over on, dragged, and trampled twice I decided that my pride wasn't worth spending the rest of my life in a wheelchair

    Vermont is getting colder and colder by the day, we had a low of 2 degrees a few nights ago, which is totally unacceptable

    Unfortunately Selena is still lame, despite our thoughts that her abscess had burst. She was getting better and we were slowly working our way back out on the trail. Now she's off again so I have both the Vet and Farrier coming out tomorrow to look at her and adjust her chiropractically depending on what we find. I'm hoping its just a difficult abscess that hasn't come out fully yet, but of course I'm worried sick that it could be something else more serious.

    On a more positive note, my little Vee baby is growing up so quick! She turned a month old last week and continues to shed all her baby fuzz. I can't help but continue to share her with you guys as she grows. She LOVES the outdoors and is very curious. I have no doubts that she will be an awesome trail horse in the years to come

    EL6, so sorry to hear Selena is still having some problems, it seems odd to say, but I hope it is an abcess and comes out soon. Or something else easily treatable anyway...

    However, your little Vee is the cutest little filly! She is such a looker!
    Beautiful

    Thanks for sharing and keep those pictures coming!!!!

    I too had a crazy mare that would do a huge spook-n-buck and dump me on a regular basis...she is the reason I got into Dressage, it was the only way I could ride her...completely away from other horses in a fence!

    She was an Appy/TB cross and quite crazy...on the trails she nearly killed me more than once; if another horse, even one she knew, rode up behind us at more than a shuffling walk, that mare would take off like she was shot out of a cannon and we would be barreling thru the woods as if the hounds of Bakersville were chasing us

    She didn't see or hear anything, and forget trying to stop her with anything as lame as a bit...oh no, the only thing that would stop her was another horse aimed straight at her head, then she would do the famous spook-n-buck and I would find myself bouncing along the ground by the reins until I remembered how to open my fingers and let go...

    Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately???) She always managed to find her way home, or back to the trailer if we had trailered in. Once there, she would wait impatiently for my return, working herself into a panic at she trotted back and forth, head up & nostrils flaring, and absolutely refusing to let anyone catch her. Of course, as soon as I arrived, she would come at me in a dead gallop, nickering loudly the whole way.

    Idiot horse.

    I decided she was just too damaged to be ridden (she was abused at her previous home) so wound up a pretty decent broodmare before retiring to pasture.
