    Hey friends! I have 2 horses who I will be taking camping this weekend. The first is an 8yo TB/paint gelding, and the second is a 20yo TB gelding.

    So to make a long story short I've always had a pretty odd, informal way of tying my saddle bags mainly because these are my first ones and I haven't gotten to use them yet :-x.

I had my 17yo morgan, Tazz and my 6yo appendix Ned, tied up to my trailer, Ned in a leather halter and a rope lead and Tazz in a nylon halter and rope...

    On Monday evening as Honey and I were leaving to join some frinds for a ride Honey slipped in the trailer and ended up with a decent cut just above her left eye. Since it was after hours I brought her to the vet the following morning to have it cleaned properly and get some antibiotics and...
