  1. Ankle Surgery Question....weird!

    I had soft tissure ankle reconstruction ( repaired two torn ligaments and a stretched/ frayed tendon) about three months ago. I have been pretty much back to 85-90% normal life activity for a little over a month now. My question is my lovely 3 inch long scar, that pretty much runs just under my outside ankle bone started itching like crazy today and I just noticed some puffyness going toward the top of my ankle bone is that normal? I have no swelling along underside of the ankle bone, which is where it normally would get puffy and no ankle discomfort. If it continues or gets worse I will call the doc but am I being a bit paranoid or is this nothing? Darn scar is just so itchy!
  2. Heart Vs Pure Talent And Confomatiom

    I was just curious my very nicely built arab gelding just did have the heart he was a very emotional horse that would quit on you if pushed him just a bit. I sold him to a friend whose kids ride him happiest horse ever. My current gelding is a grade ranch bred has a bit of weird comformation slightly long backed, his neck ties in high and he is cow hock. He is so honest and has a huge heart. I can take him to the local cross country course or cbase cows on him in the Wyoming terrain. He won't quit on you. Lucky though he has good bone and excellent feet and ridiculously long legs for a 15.1 horse

  9. Name The Pony Game...

    I was asked to help come up with a Western horse name for my best friend's fiances new horse. He is going to be doing mounted shooting on him. The horse is currently named Benny. Her fiance keeps shooting down every name we throw out. Benny is a dark sorrel with two socks in the left, a giant blaze, eyeliner and a grumpy attitude. We have suggested showdown,Cooper,Rio wrangler cowboy,vaquaro,buckshot,caliber,lariat and the about thirty odd more. Does anyone have a good suggestion?

  15. Lease Agreements?

    Does any one know where I can find forms for free lease agreements online? and what are something should I consider when free leasing a horse? I have a sound older pony that needs a job. I no longer ride him and have focused on my younger horse. I would like to lease him to a lady with a couple grandchildren . Under the following terms I will cover all of him worming and vacination costs. She would cover full care and feet care. I am not sure how to work in the vet care aspect. I am going to meet with her and check out her facility. Any suggestions?

  19. I Feel Like A Horrible...horrible Person Right Now.

    You did the right thing .I rescued a 8 year old jrt named Sami . The people were going to shoot him. He was a bit naughty at first and hadn't any rules enforced for a while. Plus he had top dog complex until my 20 lb border sheltie mix told him other wise . The poor dog had bounced though atleast 6 homes in a year. His worst habit was he would try to mark once the first time he went into a new house. Correcting him just before he tried to hike a leg solved it. After a few weeks of of enforcing the rules we found out he was a very well trained dog .and I found him a forever home with a nice lady with two aussies and lots of land.

  22. Strangles Info Please

    Well a horse at our.self. care barn came down with strangles. I have done a bit of research but was wondering what other info I could get? Any one ever experienced strangles?
  23. Strangles Info Please

    I agree rocksoild. Everyone so far at my barn had agreed not to move their horses . But I live in the largest city in Wyoming and we seriously have like 7 options maybe for boarding facilities here for the amenities and price my barn is 3rd on the list. Location is good to I live like 2 miles from the barn. The other two barns are full care barns that want an arm and a leg and offer only inside stalls ( my boy isn a run and shed set up) no turn out and no wher to ride except . But on the flip side I do need to indoor. I wish I had other options but
  24. Strangles Info Please

    This Wyoming that's not exactly how out works.
  25. Strangles Info Please

    They haven't put a " official" quarantine on the barn and we have had several vets out. The owner also will not let anyone bring horses in and the responsible boarder have agreed not to haul anywhere. But it being a self care facility( ie. You supply your own hay feeding cleaning etc) unless a vet puts an official quarantine there isn't anything legal the B.O can do . Does anyone know how to disinfect blankets? I was thinking bleach but I don't want to destroy my blankets.
