    This is all too familiar territory for me, having just gone through this back on November 1 with a horse that was truly part of my family for almost 23 years. I HAD to be there, and my husband drove...

    I have over twenty-two years' worth of memories, photos, ribbons... love. I also have Jewel's 14-year-old daughter, Stella, the spitting image of her mother. I see Jewel in Stella's eyes, in her...

    I'll be thinking of you, vtdobes. And yes, it's incredibly hard... one of the hardest things I've ever done. But as others have mentioned, it is the ultimate act of love. I keep reminding myself...
  5. Godspeed, Jewel - April 9, 1986 - November 1, 2012

    The grief is raw, and new, yet not unfamiliar. How does one know when the time has come to part ways with a noble creature, when there is no voice to say, ā€œIā€™m ready?ā€ As Jewel stood there, shifting...

    Hindsight

    Had I read even a small number of the heartbreaking stories posted here 13 years ago, I probably wouldn't have made the decision to breed my mare. But I wouldn't trade the experience for the...
  8. cavaletti

    After a year of rehab for a suspensory lesion, my mare was weaker in the hind end, and more on the forehand than we liked. She was also not balanced enough to canter without rushing. At the vet's...
  9. County Connection

    I lucked into a used County Connection, in extra-wide, for my 15.1 1/2 h., 1000-pound registered Paint, breeding stock mare--with a very difficult-to-accommodate shoulder. It fits her beautifully,...

    Agree with concentrating on your breathing. Here in the land of soggy, heavy heat, sitting trot does take its toll. My trainer has me ride with my lips slightly parted, breathing deeply in-and-out...

    Go with a smile!

    Neat and clean is wonderful, but remember that it's fun, too! I just had my first dressage show experience last Saturday, on my homebred mare, Stella, and it was a great first time! My trainer was...

    I had the choice between a vet clinic with on-site rehab 2 hours away, with all the bells and whistles of technology, and the private rehab barn an hour and 45 minutes away in the opposite direction....
  14. Timely

    This is near and dear to my heart, having just brought home one of my mares from eight months of rehab at a small, private facility about an hour and 45 minutes from me. My reasons for sending her,...

    Catch a Murmur is sadly deceased; he passed away three years ago, according to his owner/breeder, Nancy Gregory. I just got off the phone with her. I tracked her down in Meggett, SC (Charleston, SC...

    Well that makes sense! The name sounds awfully familiar, but being an older model myself, "familiar" doesn't necessarily mean much...

    Just a quick check of USEF's site yielded the name of a breeder that bred one horse by Catch a Murmur, dam unknown, a gelding named Murmur's XL (1996), as well as one by Another Murmur (Catch a...

    Can't answer this, but I do know that the Kuhns of Tryon, NC owned a number of Blue Murmur horses at one point (60's/early 70's), and there are quite a few descendants in the Tryon, NC/Landrum, SC...

    Count me among those who remember, and personally knew, quite a few Murmurs growing up... then again, I turned fifty last year.

    "Purposeful" is good... and so is a healthy dash of stubbornness! So good to read of her progress, and here's hoping for more milestones as the days pass.
