  • Anybody else havin trouble with the pasture gate here at Off Course?

    Howdy, Coth Ranch amigos,

    I seem to be able to come in your pasture gate here, but every time I try to tell ya about my latest story of what happened to me, then the gate swings shut and my words disappear. Does anybody know that the fence and gate likely need some mendin? I could help out some if needed. Not a lot, mind ya, since I am retired and 31 years old. Thanks kindly.

      Send Moderator 1 a note--guessing your posts with a link are getting stuck in the spam filter somewhere.

            I was wondering where Whiskey had been. I hope he is staying under fans with his buddies.

              Thanks kindly, ranch boss! This new-fangled stuff ain’t always what it’s cracked up to be.

                Glad you got a-loose!

                Reminds me of a horse I saw. He was standin’ close to the fence under a tree, looking all droopy and colicky, even drooling on the fence. Every now and then, he’d lift his head an inch or so, then relax again.

                When I got to the other side, I saw he was hooked to the tree! He musta itched against the open screw-eye that was screwed into the tree, and the hook it made went through his cheek and caught him like a fish! Luckily he was a laid-back dude, and didn’t panic and rip his cheek, but every now and then he would test it to see “Am I loose? Nope, still stuck”.

                Once he was freed, he was back to his normal self, and his bucket gal was told to keep the hole clean as possible, but it would heal over quickly.

                Never did find out if he dribbled feed or water through the hole for awhile.

                  Now there'a another real good horse. I hope he got lots of treats, even if he dribbled 'em through a hole in his face. Did his bucket gal near have a breakdown like mine did?

                    Glad that turned out well for you Whiskey Ranch-Horse !
                    You horses do have a way of aging us Bucketgals years in a matter of seconds.

                    My own near-breakdown came when I got home from work one Winter day.
                    Saw my 2 horses standing in pasture, their usual way was to hear my car, then head into the barn as they knew dinner was coming shortly.
                    I can see the pasture from my bedroom window & as I was changing into barn clothes, I peeked out & saw my TWH standing in the same spot. His TB buddy was gone.
                    I flew to the pasture & found he had stepped through the wire corner bracing and was stuck tight.
                    Several piles of manure showed he'd been stuck for some time.
                    No sign of struggle & TB had apparently kept him company until he saw the car. Traitor .

                    I tried working the foot loose, but it was wedged really tight, no shoes, so caught firmly between fetlock & heel.
                    So tight I worried if he had sliced it on the wire, it was acting like a tourniquet and he'd start bleeding when I got the foot free.
                    Held my breath, got him free & TG! No blood.
                    He took a couple shaky steps, then walked back with me just fine.
                    If he'd been a less sensible horse, that could have been a Very Bad Thing.

                    Another Heartstopper was when I looked out that bedroom window on a snowy day & saw a long streak of blood on the tan barn siding Both horses were standing head to head right by that Telltale Streak.
                    Ran out to find TB had somehow sliced his eyelid - eye itself was untouched.
                    Nothing sharp to explain how he'd managed to do that, no halters to get blamed.
                    Maybe a game of Facebite gone wrong?
