Thank you CatchMe.
I wanted to see A Little Romance and Jess Phoenix go - they had a lovely round, I loved the announcer's comments about the mare.
Does anyone know if the XC rounds are archived anywhere?
Fred is now 25 (!) and his favourite treat continues to be carrots. To make it easier on his old teeth, I cut them in slices (thick slivers) about 3 inches long. So one carrot makes about 4 slices. ...
This makes me sad and sick, just reading it. Poor dear horse. :cry:
Looks like Jess switched her ride times on Bentley's Best and A Little Romance.
ALR went earlier.
Congratulations, have fun with your pretty girl, and welcome to COTH!
I am so sorry for your poor mare. Most important to get nourishment into the foal, milk replacer works very well, you can get it from your vet short term, and most big feed mills have it as well.
Thank you, HH. It does look excellent.
I'm not sure we have access to workers like this, but I am sure I could hire someone to do it. Do you know if they used sprayers? was it Tremclad?
I'm so sorry, crosscreek. But very glad that no lives were lost.
Of the riders named, how many have horses who are qualified for Rio?
Besides Jess (with A Little Romance! ;) )
I agree with Greenacre. You have an opportunity to ride the horse, you know him, like him, and you know the history of his injury.
There are no 'perfect' horses, but this one sounds very nice and...
Having a farm really is a work in progress.
This year in the house we have to renovate the ensuite bathroom and the kitchen.
Year after year barn and pasture improvements have come first, but 2016...
Thinking of you, and all who have had to make this hard decision recently.
Even though it is the right and kind thing to do, it is never easy.
OP, your signature line says it all.
A grand horse, a long and happy life.
It is still sad when they go, though, no matter how old.
