  1. Hoping your mare is doing better!
  2. We all have to be our own health advocates when it come to doctors and the hospital - you have to ask a thousand questions and sometimes be pushy to find out what you need to know to make a good decision or to confirm that results are correct. If you are unable to do it yourself, you need to have a family member or friend who will help you through it. It's like speaking a foreign language with no confidence that what you are being told in that language is right. Glad Amber is getting better, hope your family can find the support you need to help her recover.
  3. And of course lots of rubbing around the face, head and ears with rope, fabric, brushes, etc to desensitize. Photos!?
  4. TL - just reading this today - sorry for Amber and your family, but so glad that things are looking up! Prayers sent.
  5. Congrats on the new horse and a good ride. Looking forward to photos!
  6. Thanks to everyone for your condolences, I really appreciate it.
  7. So sad to tell you that we lost my husband's paint mare to colic about 2 weeks ago. He has had her since she was born, and she was just 16 and in her prime. They had such a great bond, from riding trails, playing games to doing Revolutionary War re-enactments, they were a perfect match, he thought it, she did it. We are happy with the decisions we had to make on 'the day', but we are devastated and a bit lost. For the past 13 years, we have spent every weekend together riding our horses, so it's just so sad right now. He will get another eventually, but no hurry. Here's a photo of their Revolutionary days - she was a beautiful paint and a confident and brave horse!
  8. Stunning as always!
  9. Great progress!
  10. Had decent weather this weekend so I got to get out and ride! Did a little round pen to remind him of his manners then a lot grooming and a ride in the ring and yesterday we had a nice drill team practice - all at a walk - so good break-in time for both of us to start getting in riding shape. Felt so good to be back riding again after the winter!
  11. Thanks NN - I love seeing photos of you two. In the next to the last still photo, he looks like a My Little Pony toy! Hope you have a wonderful spring full of riding!
  12. Sunny here, but the rain is arriving full force tomorrow.
  13. Queen BAW - so sorry to hear about the tragedy and your horse. Sending you positive thoughts on a tough day.
  14. Sending positive thoughts and wishes your way, PD.
  15. Jubal - He's actually a big, stocky quarter horse with a smaller head that is a bit Arabian-like. He is always such a good sport with his birthday photos - the first ones were so funny because he was soooo unhappy about his hat - but he got over it! PD - thanks - I think he's a pretty cute Irishman too!
