    Not getting out entirely, just taking a break (in two years). Candy can continue making pretty babies --- with someone else!

    The soontonotbe man will get a job as a Large Junior or Ammy Owner Hunter.

    Awwww I'm kind of sad, SM. The end of an "era" here on COTH for me. I'm glad you're comfortable with it and I'll be crossing my fingers for his surgery.

    Not wishing to sound crass persay but what plans have you made with them.... "forever gilded"? "brassed"? or "sun dried"?

    I would think that a marvelous title for a book! Should Hilary win...of course?



    There is just something about a president with green lips that reads wrong.

    But then again what would I know? I eat seaweed when I can.

    If she's a true TB lover, she'll take them home and throw them on the roof of the barn for good luck.

    See and here I was thinking having them brassed was the best option so she could turn them into her front door knocker

    Y'all are too silly for me!!!

    I am nervous and excited at the same time. Last weekend I was already scouting the local junior riders for him. I just sent entries in for Chagrin and have to make some phone calls to find a rider for there! I have, in the barn, a young adult who can do him in the AA's, but no kids ready for 3'6", nor can they hanle his jump at 3'.

    When are you headed to Chagrin? I've never taken the drive up there but I've always wanted to..I'd love to head up there and meet the studless man

    I wish I knew someone who was a 3'6er but alas most of the people I hang out with are weenies - we stick to the 3' or less

    Good luck finding him a rider! I'm sure it won't be too hard!! Oh, and good luck with the surgery-I'll be jingling all goes well next week

    Chagrin isn't until 7/14-20, but the stalls sell out, so I had to send in stall fees early.

    I have a young adult in the barn who will do him in the AA's at some of the shows this summer, but she has a budget as she is going to grad school in the fall. Besides, he needs to be promoted as a 3'6" horse, so I need to fing a junior for that.

    State College and August Saugerties are also on the list for needing to find a junior catch-ride.

    Not sure what July will bring but if I find I have some time free or feel like taking time away maybe I'll take the drive up. I'm in Pgh so it's not that far really.

    5 days and counting 'til the studlessness!

    End of an era for Yak too!
    I feel the same way, Sabra. He is a gorgeous, talented, and well-bred horse - and we need TB sporthorse stallions like him.
    But I do understand your position.
    Good luck, I'll be thinking of you.

    There you are Fred!!! I was just about to send out a search party.

    Hope all is well with you, my friend.

    2 1/2 days left of hormones and today was a classic example of why I don't want to own a stallion anymore. Across the street from my farm are fields that have been turned into a recreation area. On weekends, they have soccer and baseball games over there, and practices during the week. I had a local show this weekend, and was pulling out the driveway to go get load #2 to bring home (Yak's paddock is out front). As I got to the end of my drive, I saw a small child and her father on the road side of my property in front of his paddock. I have warning signs and the paddock is triple hotwired with 4 rail fencing - the cjild and father appeared to be going back across the highway, but as I pulled out, they turned around and I could see the child picking grass...

    I immediately called my barn manager because it was too late to turn back and had her go chase them off. What part of the sign "Beware, Horse BITES!" didn't they get??? He doesn't really BITE, but he is currently a breeding stallion and can be nippy. Little fingers do look like carrots, don't they???
