I decided to buy myself a Christmas present so I ordered a Down Under Wizzard Poley saddle along with the pad, woolie legging thingies, and a breast strap for my darling boy Red. I ordered it on December 23 and on December 26 my boy colicked.:cry:

He is ok and stayed at the vet from Saturday to Wednesday. He colicked on Tifton hay because

1. He is a pig in horse costume
2. He hadn't had his alfalfa
3. Probably didn't drink enough

Anywhoo...my darling little pig is ok and I got his saddle the day he came home. They sent the wrong size so it is going back and being swapped out for the right size. I did put it on Red and sat in it - I really liked it!!!

I am hoping to ride next weekend up at a park 100 miles away that is fabulous and give the saddle a good test!

My Billy Cook saddle should be returned to me from BC soon so Red now has a Billy Cooke, a Steele and an Aussie. My hubby said that was ridiculous :shock: This from a man who golfs out the wazootie, has a Harley Heritage, a Quarter Horse gelding and loves to go to the casino to gamble! LOL I think I need to by another saddle!!!

I am so glad he is ok. I have never had a horse colic or even seen a horse colic. I have read about it numerous times so was very glad I recognized it for what it was early. The vet said I caught it in time so that Red wasn't in serious danger and my vet bill wasn't as high as it could have been!

I am surrounded by Murphy's Law...if it can go wrong, it will. It will be just like the one in the link above just 1" smaller! I am very excited about it. I have had major saddle fitting issues and hopefully Red and I will be happy faux Aussies!
