Funny you mention.
Miss "magic fingers" was out last week. My horse was one of four she was to work on. She was heading down the barn aisle toward his stall where he was eagerly anticipating her...
Pretty much what everyone else said.
I was pretty excited to be called for the first time this year. Unfortunately, having worked in law offices for 20 + years conflicted me out of every case I...
We've been married for 21 years and I wear mine about half the time. I work in an office during the day and I'm in the barn before and after work, so mine go to the office only and come off when I...
So very very sorry :(
Congratulations!! He is beautimous. Looking forward to updates and more pictures :)
Thank you all for your kind words.
The title (and thread) are the thoughts I was having yesterday. After the vet and everyone left, I was cleaning stalls by myself and my mind was wandering. I...
30 years ago I got a call at work one afternoon from my mom. She asked me to stop on the way home to look at a pony and foal. I did as she asked and when I got home I called her and asked her "how...
My horse is a fairly steady eddie type, and also gives lessons in addition to being my horse. So he would pretty much go for most anyone.
Those threads you mention had me thinking similar thoughts.
One of my bosses and I are both [ahem] in our 50s. We always chuckle about the fact that newly minted attorneys and cops keep looking...
Just remember my favorite Thelwell quote that goes something like this, complete with wonderful hugging picture:
Sooner or later the right horse will find you :)
Had never seen that before. I thought the rider and horse were awesome.
And while in the horse world 64 isn't "that old" in a world that tends to be driven by the younger set, it is nice to see...
That's what I remember too. Thank you for sharing.
You describe the woman as the BM and the Ahole as the trainer. Is there a barn owner?
What a wonderful person you are for caring about her feelings.
I definitely endorse the bracelet idea around the holidays. And nice updates so that she knows you are both happy :)
I think it depends on the horse.
Our cranky old arthritic 33 year old coot and some of his friends generally prefer to be out. The pony of the same age prefers to be in. I generally do as I am...
Wow. What a fantastic human being. Thank you for posting.
What the others said.
I think most trainers would say they appreciate students that take lessons seriously, and like to work hard and try.
And hope you have a wonderful time!
Yep, what Laurierace said.
Professor Schultz sounded like such a very special horse. There is probably a very important place in heaven for schoolies like him. I am so very sorry for your loss :(
I had seen that one before and really like it and was glad to see it again. Thanks for posting!
What a wealth of fantastic information here.
One of the riders at our barn does a lot of foster work. I think people that do foster work are amazing angels of rescue. You guys totally rock!!!
I had heard of it, but didn't know a lot about it until we adopted a large approx 5 yo German Shep X from the SPCA. The woman there gave me information and told me what to feed. After reading about...
I transitioned one in July. I brought into the house because she had gotten hurt, so she started in a bathroom, then to a regular room and then to the run of the house.
One of my biggest...
We also had one that got very sick as a foal, and as a result was very needle phobic. I think Hilary gave good instructions, which is kind of what we did. She is okay, but when giving shots you...
I couldn't give a rat's patoot about what other people wear. For me personally, by dressing appropriately, I am showing respect for the clinician.
