    Ok see I was weirded out by the round looking joints too. That makes more sense now. I didn't squish it on my phone, I promise, that's just the way the picture looked.

    ETA: the picture did...

    very, very recently.
    so now I get to see their posts in my facebook feed and dream of the day I can afford a horse again.

    I screenshotted it on my phone (is that a word? it is now...) so I'll see if I can upload it somewhere.

    Did you see the front view picture of him before they took it off? He's very toed out. Just for anyone thinking about him. I don't know how it would affect how he moves, if it just wouldn't be pretty...

    I just want to say Toadie's Mom is the COOLEST lady I have ever met in real life and had the pleasure of riding with. She's also so tough.

    Once my coach did tell me she did not normally take girls "my size" as hunter riders and that she normally had them switch to western. It took me 3 tryouts and a long talk with her to get on the team...

    It would never even occur to me to worry about my dog going *gasp* TO THE BACK. The back is where the scale is. It's also easier for them to draw her blood when she's away from me.

    Actually...

    Haha... I was going to take last summer's borrowed horse to a show, but only if he would get on a straight load (which his owner warned me about him hating those, but I had to try). I tried for maybe...

    I was there for my horse, but I turned my back after giving him one last hug so that I didn't have to see any of the injections.

    18 is probably old enough to decide whether he wants to be there...

    Even where I boarded, I was welcome to see my horse any time. Provided that if it was the middle of the night I didn't turn on any lights (I would just shine my headlights into his run since he had...

    Thankfully my IHSA didn't try to change me keeping the bight to the left (there were more important things to fix... like my legs, my hands, my shoulders...) but we did learn it in case the judge...

    My opinions on cloning aside, I wish y'all could meet Veneklasen. He is a fascinating man. I got to meet him and talk to him several times as a student, he was very generous with his time coming to...

    No, I know it's a cheap saddle, which is why I took a friend with me to check it out ;)

    And actually yes, knowing me I could probably find a deal on an English saddle for that much :lol:....

    I think this is what my friends jokingly call a quarter life crisis, but the Appaloosa is coming back to school with me (no, I didn't buy him, but his owner won't have time to try to sell him for...

    It keeps hitting me, over and over, that he's really gone and I'll never see him again or groom him and he won't be there to come running in from the pasture when he hears my voice ever again.
