I also liked what Buddy Roo said.
Be kind to yourself, you've been through a lot.
Okay, so let's have a vote: what's worse? mudslides? blizzards? freezing fog? tornadoes? We have them all across the US right now...
I am aghasted that you would have a salt block AND a hay rack in the same stall. Apparently, you have merely contracted for the evil deed to be done by using the dark world underlings in the...
No, no, no. It was the feed tub and water bucket conspiring! They are just blaming it on the pink sleazy!!
gls, how helpful - thanks!
stoneymeadow, thank you. Beautifully stated.
Ah, she must have studied at the Thelwell School of Horsemanship. Sadly, you were not as well trained, and so you were unable to "hear' the conversations of horse and rider, i.e.:
She will need pink shoes to match.
I like warm air, really. I'm even okay with rain, some of the time. But this is an eerie, sci fi situation. It's like the rain died, but doesn't want to "cross over" to the other side.
We need a...
rodawn and mbm had some great advice. I think, as someone who has also battled with this (and yes, who also has very short arms), don 't focus on this necessarily as an elbow issue. Your arms and...
For a week now, the fog has been appalling. Tonight it's the worst - about 10-15 feet visibility, maybe.
This is St. Louis, not the Scottish moors. We have no heather, only mucky clay over rock....
I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV...so can some legal eagle please clarify?
I don't understand the open ended aspect here. The OP, in good faith, has paid up, and it has caused hardship....
And by supporting the ones with whom you do agree, you help them survive.
As Jenn says, there is no one right way. So much depends upon your area, your facilities, your resources,...
My almost 18 year old OTTB is out 24/7 and DOES NOT LIKE TO BE IN and DOES NOT LIKE TO BE BLANKETED.
In summer, he's the weenie. In winter, I'm the weenie!!
Yes, a 501(c)3 should be on Guidestar.
Hmmm...just think aloud here...there's no hay rack in that stall, is there?
So happy for you - I hope this is just part of an upward spiral for you on all fronts.
Enjoy the new barn!
I'm sure the feed tub is blaming it on the water bucket, but Trevor isn't talking.
Glad he's doing better!
Apparently USPS had some issues...not the first time, and given the bad weather in so many places, it was bound to happen.
I wonder how many horses do the twirly thing? I certainly didn't teach it to mine - when he had a run in stall, at another barn, I'd get there and have to spend a good 15 min each day retrieving...
Sure. Life advice from Keith Richards. That's why Ted's going to go to law school.
If something is left on the top of my tack trunk for more than a day or two, I just cheerfully tell people, "Isn't that great! Someone left me stuff to send to one of my Special Horses Groups!!!"
