  1. Silly Trot Question...

    oh, I see. helpful information!
  2. Silly Trot Question...

    I've seen lots and lots of trainers starting to use the "post". I don't really know why, guess I will have to ask! The young man that started my last horse I trained, post on his horses (he is a cutting horse trainer).
  3. Hello - and a question

    Pink, I would definitely price my work higher than 10% over cost. That is not worth your while to do them. I would want at least double what they cost for small ones and probably triple or quadruple on larger ones. That would still be relatively cheap for different items that only cost you 5.00 or less to make.

    Queen - isn't Double T those saddles from India or am I mistaking a similar sounding name?
  5. My Wife Mozelle.

    my condolences also PD. So sorry to hear that she has lost her fight! Prayers for you and your family.

    little cow - when I sold my property I did not advertise it specifically as horse property. But the lady that ended up buying it took one look at my barn and said, " a real horsewoman lives here"! My two suggestion are: Advertise it as a multiuse property and not only a horse farm. - highlight any area that could be converted from animals to something else, in-law suite, gardens, guest house......there are people looking for horse facilities but there are more looking for just a place in the country. and number two: if possible remove or reduce the manure pile completely. Neatness and cleanliness sells like nothing else.

    Danyel - yes she does. She will say the most horrible things to her and 30 minutes later she is calling asking her to go pick her up some cigarettes or dog food or ........ If my child ever acted like hers they would get nothing but a cold shoulder from mom! I am not about to do things for someone that cusses me out and tells me I'm a bad mom or lies to me .......

    I know that the daughter will never change. What I hope for is that there is some service or counselor that my friend (the mom) could go to for good advice on how to break the cycle. Some direction that I could point her in to perhaps get help. The daughter has been fired from every job she has had (she works in the health field) and is presently unemployed. I just wish there was something I could do to help my friend. I realize that pouring good money after bad and half believing the lies she is told and continuing to step in to keep the daughter from carrying out her suicide threats is not the path to "salvation". I even think that she knows that too, but I know she will never stop giving as much as she can give. Sad and frustrating on all fronts! PD, I believe in helping my children, if and when they hit a hard spot in their lives, but that is not actually the problem here. (Thank goodness the only help I have ever had to give is just a non judgemental ear whenever they need to talk.) I'm afraid this situation of my friend will be an unending problem as long as they both live. little cow, my friend or her daughter? I'm not sure I understand why the daughter is so terribly ungrateful. My friend is all about family and talking to your kid instead of corporal punishment. Her daughter had a good example of how you treat family..... but she turned a 180 degrees the other way! Equicrazy, I know that! I just wish she could see that too! All she can picture is that she HAS to keep stepping in and helping because if she did not the kids would have no food or a roof over their head or be taken away by social services. As for me..... I wouldn't do it! That may sound hard hearted but I expect my kids to stand on their own two feet. My two are hardworking, good people and I have never had to be involved in the things my friend has. But if they were doing the things her daughter does.... I would wash my hands of them and let them get what they deserved for that kind of behavior.

    I have a friend who "helps" her daughter. She has been her "enabler" for a very long time. Where can a person go to get help? I'm talking about the mother.... she has helped her daughter to the point that it is ruining her relationship with her boyfriend, putting herself in debt over her head, she buys every bite the daughter eats, pays her rent and all her bills, borrows money to get the daughter basically whatever she ask for. She won't stop helping because the daughter threatens suicide and she can't stand the thought of contributing to that! She says, if I don't help she has no one. She has gone beyond all her resources to keep helping out. (there are two granddaughter living in this life as well) Is there any service out there that will help take the burden off her hands? What about counseling (free) to show her that nothing will ever change as long as she continues to be an enabler? Edited to add that she will not stop "helping".... what I hope for is that she could get counciling that would show her that it will never end as long as she keeps giving and giving. She needs to find the road out of the situation. she cannot do that on her own. (see the light).

  12. Snotty Nose

    Heidi , I think that both the cough and the runny noses are better today. Sure hope that they are on the mend. Nobody likes their horses to be sick!
  13. Snotty Nose

    I am experiencing pretty much the same thing. I think it is a highly resistant cold bug as my guys have all been vaccinated for the ordinary stuff. I was at a trail ride last week with two of my horses. There were very few horses in the barn but down about 10 or 12 stalls there was a horse that was coughing. His owner had the vet over to see him and was given a shot and instructed not to ride him for a few days. Several days later my palomino started coughing a little. I don't feel like he ever got a fever and his nose ran only slightly BUT now that I am back home the other horse (that I had there) has a bad runny nose and has coughed a little bit and one of the horses left at home now has a bad runny nose and a cough. I gave them shots of penicillin yesterday and am anxious to see how they are doing today!
  14. Hi. I gots a puppy.

    Awww! Beagles puppies are SO cute. Although I love all puppies Beagle pups are the cutest!
  15. The puppies are born!

    Not dogs but kitties.........Last week we found two starving kittens out at our barn (house and barn are close to the road, probably someone dumped them and kept on going) They are two almost identical gray tabbies. It is practically impossible to tell them apart except one is a boy and one is a girl. I want to name the boy Baxter and the girl Berniece (or Bernie) but I cannot stop calling them "Kitty", as in "here Kitty, Kitty" or "Aww, look at the Kitty!" or "what cha doin Kitty?"! I guess maybe when they are grown I will call them by a name??? Lol!
