  1. You know where I am. You know I'm here if you need to talk. You know if there is anything, anything at all, I can do... I'll do it. Lots of prayers from my part of the woods. [Angel] [Angel] [Angel] char
  2. Jessica - Congratulations on your new horse. Can't wait to see new pictures. But would you please remove the link to her picture on the other site. As you know it's is a competitive site for horsecity.com and as such is not allowed. Thanks. Again congratulations! Char
  3. How is your guy doing?
  4. Wow. That makes my day. I can see why you are so excited about them. I only have one little pony and cart but I do love spending time driving. Hope to be able to see a big show one day. Thanks for sharing! Dustygirl
  5. Megan & Duke - you have a PM. Char
  6. Barebackbabe - you are right in the respect that all equine activities (up to and including putting a child on a supposedly bomb proof horse) are inherently dangerous. Simply because of the unpredictability of our equine friends. And I'm pretty sure the OP as well as many who have been following this thread has been reminded of that. Now let's see pictures of that horse. Please. Char [ 06-05-2007, 07:04 PM: Message edited by: DustyGirl ]

  8. Wonderful story! I'm proud of you! Char
  9. Beth - yeah.... what HFF said! You have a PM back. Char
  10. From what I gathered from the OP. The child was on the yearling named Glori. The other horse (Springs) that she rode first for 10 minutes was the sore one.... [ 06-05-2007, 04:08 PM: Message edited by: DustyGirl ]

  12. quote: Originally posted by barrelracer17: The only thing I don't get about the main post is why your vet told you to get on your horse because he was sore. Makes no snese to me whatsoever. The only time I got on my horse when he was "sore" was when my horse was recovering from an abcess. He *looked* like he was walking fine but I hopped on really quick to see if I could *feel* any lameness. Maybe. Just maybe this is what she was doing too? Char

  14. Whoa! We all need to take a step back here for a second. First of all having a 20 lb. child sit on a yearling for a short walk isn't anything like riding a yearling! I think y'all are being a little harsh here. Obviously she never turned the child loose. Secondly, I have a filly that if the situation had come up I would have been comfortable having a child sit on her back for a minute. I know my horse. And I know what I can trust her with and what I can't. Can't we give the benefit of the doubt here? Like somebody said "We've all done stupid things. Spur of the moment things with our horses that we looked back on later and said "Wow. I didn't really do that did I? I know I have (and one of them was wearing flip-flops around my horses - which I will never do again) So please can we move on from here in a nice way? And also remember there is nothing you can't say without trying to get around the language sensor. Char
