I'm sitting here watching the Derby prerace show while looking for a front license plate for my van.

I found the mother-lode of designs but had to share this one! Finally we know why she was wearing that special smile...

A friend asked me for some help with her new horse. She told me he had brake issues so i assumed it took a little bit or finagling to get him to stop. Nope, he had absolutely NO stop whatsoever. Falling off an 17hh warmblood at a canter is not fun. I hit the ground so hard I ruptured my ear drum. So I'm out of the saddle until I have recovered from surgery. It's the third time I've torn it and I already had a lot of scar tissue build up and virtually no hearing in that ear and with the third tear I lost all hearing in it and most of my balance. I'm stumbling around like a drunk man on a boat during a hurricane. My surgeon is going to attempt to cut back the scar tissue and fuse the new tear because it's not going to close on it's own after all the abuse. Probably 4-5 weeks until I can ride again.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

Saints preserve me Bloobabe. Good gracious that sucks. It sucks to come off a horse, sucks to rupture that eardrum AGAIN and it sucks to not be able to hear out of one side - that I know about - I can't hear well now out of my left ear.

I know all about the drunken sailor routine too. Get some meclizine (I think that is the name...maybe not the spelling though!) and it will help. I will be saying prayers for your full recovery and hope that surgeon can do something with that scar tissue!!!

Amy, I tried to look at the link but I wasn't successful.

Sorry for the trouble Bloo. I had a friend come off her horse once because I thought if I stopped (being in the lead) her horse would stop. Nope, just went around which what caused my friend to come off.

I have a good case of that Amy. Before I bought the horses I had plenty of money. I am kind of a tightwad with myself. Then I bought horses. LOL OMG I spent 30K the first year I had horses. LOL I try to limit myself now but geez....I need another saddle .... dang.....

Jeez Denise! You are not supposed to count all the money you spend on horses! That is dangerous thinking...bicycles start to look good

I am getting addicted to that website, it has more equine themed gifts than I have ever seen in one place. I sure hope it quits raining before I buy out the place

LOL that was just the first year...but that included the purchase price of 2 horses, the down payment on the trailer, saddles, bridles, saddle pads, vet bills, you name it. I didn't have even a curry comb when I started. I kinda was like a kid in a candy store with a pocket full of gold!

That sounds like me so far this year,QOS. We are just getting back into horses after a 12 year drought. Just getting the property fencing repaired, even though not completely proper, took a a piece of the pie. Have only purchased one horse and that was Trusty, but purchase is always the cheap part of ownership. We had nothing for horses other than property. Initially there was only suppose to be 3 horses maximum meant for riding. We have 5 and were at 7 until yesterday. Found a home for the 2 rescues and they are going to spoiled in the proper way more than I could have ever dreamed of doing. Only major purchase left now is the trailer.


Bloo, I hate hearing about you bad luck with the ear. Oh, sorry. let me get on the other side...Bloo, I'm sorry to hear about your ear injury and lack of balance. Hopefully the doctor can get enough repairs on it to give you some hearing out of it. I'll add a spot on the prayer list for you.



Celeste, you still are in no jeopardy of the bottom mileage. I had too many chores this weekend to get any saddle time in.
