  1. Open Bar/chat Party ***is Now In Session!**

    How do you have the TIME to be on so many sites?? I have time this morning because it's dumping snow, but most of the time I don't.
  2. Hey, Hc "oldsters!"

    I joined in 2004. I remember dedicating a class at the Scottsdale show to Redreiner..... Wish I still had the video. It's on a zippy account I can't get into. Had a hard time remembering my password for here! There - I edited my signature. My Arabian collection has grown from one to three! And I really do miss the dancing banana.....
  3. Passing This On For Cch

    I can confirm that she did ask for help on a private board. I was going to take one. She's not far from me. Then the price went way up. For an unbroke, untried horse. In hindsight I wish I had then AC could have stepped in much sooner. This is a horrible situation. I feel awful for those horses.
  4. Passing This On For Cch

    I am commenting on the due process thing. When a person commits a crime, such as an assault, they book them in jail to take immediate action to alleviate the problem. That doesn't mean the person is convicted of assault. That comes later. Same thing here. They took the horses because of an immediate need. Due process will come. The video says charges are pending. I have a lot more but my lunch hour is over.
  5. Offensive Or Not?

  6. Someone Please Help Me...

    If you happen to check back, you might want to look into your County's view of California's Animal Neglect law (Section 597 of the Penal Code) Many jurisdictions require a horse be provided with 'adequate shelter' 597. (a) Except as provided in subdivision © of this section or Section 599c, every person who maliciously and intentionally maims, mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal, or maliciously and intentionally kills an animal, is guilty of a crime punishable pursuant to subdivision (d). ( Except as otherwise provided in subdivision (a) or ©, every person who overdrives, overloads, drives when overloaded, overworks, tortures, torments, deprives of necessary sustenance, drink, or shelter, cruelly beats, mutilates, or cruelly kills any animal, or causes or procures any animal to be so overdriven, overloaded, driven when overloaded, overworked, tortured, tormented, deprived of necessary sustenance, drink, shelter, or to be cruelly beaten, mutilated, or cruelly killed; and whoever, having the charge or custody of any animal, either as owner or otherwise, subjects any animal to needless suffering, or inflicts unnecessary cruelty upon the animal, or in any manner abuses any animal, or fails to provide the animal with proper food, drink, or shelter or protection from the weather, or who drives, rides, or otherwise uses the animal when unfit for labor, is, for each offense, guilty of a crime punishable pursuant to subdivision (d). The advice you received of extra hay is good advice. Good luck to you and your horse. Coming here to ask questions, then becoming defensive at what you perceive as an attack isn't going to get you far. Mudder is one of HC's most highly respected members. I hold her in extremely high regard.
  7. Transgender Miss Universe

    I see Bigotry is alive and well. How sad. I know a guy - not sure what the official definition is, but he's a he and wants to be a she. Nice guy - he gets the coolest blouses too - I asked him where he gets them! I don't have enough time, nor do I care to waste energy judging him or his decisions and desires. He's not hurting anyone and he seems to be a nice person. I guess I'm wondering why people spend so much time fussing over others' choices. I'd much rather spend my time and energy doing something positive or worthwhile.
  8. Please Jingle For My Pony

    I know how scary this must have been for you. I'm so glad it was a fairly simple solution and pray for zero complications. Those poops look good and it sounds like he'll be fine in no time. We should start a "Colic Surgery" Club. I'll never, ever forget having to whip welts on my horse to keep him on his feet. Bless my vet for breaking the sound barrier and geting to him so quickly
  9. Rental Home And A Divorce

    Most Courts follow the "sever all ties" theory. That said, I am still on my ex's mortgage. If I had not done that and the house was to be sold, he would have moved out and "mailed me the payment book" and it would have become a court battle and destroyed both our credit. He would have done that just to get to me, so I gave in. He also was going to go after my horse, and he had destroyed the paperwork proving the horse was my separate property. Hindsight is 20/20. Do whatever you have to to protect YOURSELF. He has a time period to get me off the note, and I have a Court Order absolving me of responsibility. Even with that, the BANK can still come after me since I signed the mortgage papers. If he dies or defaults I could be screwed So I encourage you to try to get off it, any way you can, so you're not stuck like me.
  10. Thinking Of Arabs......

    Here are the x rays showing each injury. Crazy, huh? And last summer before the injury. Good thing about the injury is his weight has FINALLY come back! Psaint (and me!) in a fun schooling show. Quartermutt was there with us.
  11. Thinking Of Arabs......

    Hello everyone! Psaint is fine. He is currently at what I call the Taj Majal of barns and his rent costs more than mine LOL. After slowly bringing him back from his two near-death experiences in 2010, I entered him in a show (with me riding!) last September. 3 days before the show he was lame and puffy in his right hind ankle. Is was a bone chip (Apical Sesamoid Fracture) in his left hind. Exact. Same. Injury. as in 2007, but with more damage to the suspensory. Surgery, chip removal, stem cell therapy. We're now at 45 minutes of walking with 7 minutes of slow trotting. I put him at this stable because of the lighted arena as I work until past dark. Here's some pics. Yes, I lost some weight The arena - LOVE this place! The first time he saw himself in the mirror - "WTH is that?!?!?!" I am divorced and just bought myself a house. Lost of changes for me in the last year and a half. But I am much happier and I have the Drama King to keep my mind occupied
  12. Another Bb I'm Curious About....?

    Hi everyone I have been busier than a one-armed paperhanger LOL. Psaint is cared for almost 100% by me. So with my full time job, I care for him, and work/ride him. Katy does not come see him anymore. He's alive. That in itself is a miracle. I have found a young woman who is just getting started as a trainer. She has helped us a lot. We're going to try to enter her and Boo in a Western class next weekend. She made this But I am showing him Hunter. Next weekend is a USEF rated show. If he gets a ribbon, even 6th out of 6, he'll be fully insured as a show horse again. so my goal is a ribbon, no matter how low. It's a small show, but being up against everyone else who has "trainers" will be hard. Katy will be there too, but hopefully will be busy with the training barn she rides for. This shows you that he is still "ribby" after all his illnesses, but he's doing very well. We upped his alfalfa and he's already looking better. Pics QM took at the little open show (cell phone camera) Thanks for asking about us. I have barely any internet time, but I am happier than I have been in many years. having Psaint has kept me sane through my big life change. He is my life now.
  13. Mass Extinction On The Way
