    Most of it will stay. There is a saddle and a fair amount of tack left in there. My ex son in law had animal control called on him again about his horse's condition. He finally decided he was not going to be able to care for him anymore and told them to come get him. He knew I was interested in the trailer so he contacted me last night about it. I figure he will want to keep a few things that are in there that remind him of his horse. I just wish he would have let me take the horse when I was in a position to get the horse healthy again. The stage the horse is now is beyond my capabilities.

    I won't post a pic of the horse due to the bad shape he is in, but it is one of the worst cases I've seen of killing a horse due to love and selfishness. He asked my daughter if I would take him and she relayed the question to me. I knew it was beyond my level and reluctantly refused since I knew animal control would have a lot better resources to rehab him if possible.

    Edit to add... he is the same person I got Jems and Littleman from freely. He wouldn't give me Big Boy "because he has had him since he was 8" the horse is 22 now.

    I have been stewing over leaving early today and going for a ride before working on the other horse trailer. Was trying to convince myself to leave at 3, but couldn't talk myself into. Even tried to get Alicia,my 21 yr old daughter, to help convince me. Her response was asking if I could afford it. I'm so glad I have her trained better than a lot of kids who would never have considered the financial end of losing hours at work. Any ways,, lol... I am leaving at 4 and going for a ride before someone who will not be mentioned gets too far ahead of me...hehehehe

    I know I'll catch up later, but isn't this as good a reason as any to go ride?

    Does walking around in circles on foot count for my mileage.. cause that is all I have been doing lately. Gamer is progressing nicely with some things, but we have a long way to go in overcoming her past. Nice that I don't have any sort of deadline, as she is not going to be one of those broke-in-30-days kind of horses.

    Working with her has been very interesting, as the things that normally send greenies over the edge (like being girthed for the first time) are a non-event.. but she is still terrified of the saddle pad or anything else touching her. I have been doing tons of sacking out, and she is progressing.. but wow. Makes me sad to think what has happened to her before to make her so scared now.

    Little clip of her working in the round pen today, wearing the surcingle for the first time:

    Took me 20 minutes to get the saddle pad and surcingle on her without her moving her feet (she still flinches), which is down from the hour it took me to get just the pad against her side the first day of work. On a good note, she is doing a great job responding to the halter and not just checking out when something (everything) scares her.

    Greentree, your pictures didn't work. If you paste in the IMG code it should work.

    Dawn, Gamer seems to respond well to voice commands! That is terrific. Don't know what happened to her to make her so skittish but I am sure you will get it worked out. It took me around a year to get Biscuit not to be so skittish around his head or with new people. Looking forward to seeing more about her.
