    We had this happen with one of our old dogs and he had ruptured disks in his back. I was in high school at the time. I just remember one day he was dragging his back legs around. We rushed him to...

    haha! The grocery has the 6-pack ramen on sale for a dollar this week. I bought some tonight simply because my checking account is crying right now.

    We're finally resting. Norma got lots of pain meds and is still kind of drunk from the anesthesia. I just got her to eat and take her cardiac meds and we're all comfy now. We continue antibiotics...

    Norma is in recovery. Still groggy but coming around quickly. :) I will post a more detailed update once I've had a chance to chat with the vet.

    I have a 1994 Brenderup Royal TC. I love it and will keep it as long as I can. I've had it three years and I've needed no real repairs. Only maintenance.

    Oh, no... Hell-to-the-no... There's no apology, there's no need to solicit any feedback...

    BO had every right to organize her barn to accommodate the new boarder and I would tell her this. It...

    Well, I dropped Normie off at the vet's this morning. I was a crying mess. I had to sign all the consent forms, including the one permitting them to euthanize if she has cardiac or respiratory...

    Well, I chose to leave the barn tonight for the reasons mentioned in my other thread. I texted the girl who came out yesterday to let her know so she could make an informed decision but I was very...

    This was part of the email I sent to the BO today, which she read and responded to this morning:



    I got to the barn today and the mare was thrown out with the group while I was at work. In...

    The horses have large slow feed hay nets in their stalls and two water buckets. No one is going without food or water for any amount of time. All the horses are relatively easy and no one is...

    No, I said "If I go to the barn and find that the BO turned the nasty horse out while I'm at work, I'm putting my horses on the trailer and leaving." Just got back from the barn, crazy horse is...
  12. Well, I have someone coming tonight to check...

    Well, I have someone coming tonight to check things out! Fingers crossed. She lives just a few minutes away from the barn and life just threw her a few unexpected curves. I didn't ask for details...

    I'm of the zero tolerance belief but I didn't want to feel like I was overreacting because I'm in pain and I'm seriously PO'd. Frankly, I want this mare and her owner gone. This mare is owned by...

    I just manage deliveries and work schedules. The BO still makes executive decisions when she decides to get involved and I defer to her because I have to respect the fact that she owns the place. ...
  15. Turnout groups haven't changed at all. She's...

    Turnout groups haven't changed at all. She's been going out with her group for several years and the horse she went after tonight has been in the adjacent pasture for four months with no issues. ...

    The hour or two is really the time that I spend there but I'm setting everything up for the next shift, so I think that skewed my perspective on how much time things take. I set things up so that in...
  17. What Would You Expect a BO To Do In This Situation?

    There is one horse, a mare, who has been NASTY the last two weeks. Last Sunday, she cornered an aged gelding out in the pasture and just started kicking him. Huge, double barreled kicks and...

    Oh, and yes, I do work a full time job and spend a good chunk of my weekends working over at my trainer's barn to give her a dependable staffer since a lot of her other staff are at the mercy of...

    And to clarify, I don't own this barn - yet. It's owned by a very elderly couple (83 and 94 years old). I'm in talks with the owners about buying it but in the mean time, I simply manage everything -...

    There are 5 horses right now and I have one open stall unless I open up one of the storage stalls which I'd prefer not to do. I'm only looking to trade one stall for work. Right now, I'm doing it...

    It's about 4 hours a week total. 3 shifts with stall cleaning at about an hour and 4 shifts just grain and turn in/out at no more than 15 minutes each. So a grand total of 16 hours a month. At the...

    I made some edits to the ad in the first post. Thanks for the insight guys. I guess I may just need to understand that I might just have to do everything myself for a while and just be patient. I...

    My thought was it would be a great option for someone who may be on hard times and is trying to keep their horse while they smooth things out. The other thing would be for a rehab or retiree - an...

    I'm very flexible as far as when the morning work gets done. Pretty much anytime before 11am is fine with me. So if someone needed to do it at 5am, no biggie. On days where stalls aren't being...

    It's reclaimed pavers. We got them by the dump truck so they're throughout the aisles and there is a 4 foot perimeter of them around the barn. They are fabulous and really help with drainage.
