  1. Adorable. Congrats! I also have two, and please heed what Ozzie said. Females tend to have rocks in their brains-you call them, and they look at you-turn away, and take the high road! She'll be able to run a minimum at 17mph when she's fully grown-so don't think "you" can catch her either. LOL> Lots of people don't know either, that they donot guard until at least 2YO-and the USDA has a good article found under the heading of "livestock" dogs. Don't know if you have a fence? They also donot respect any fence that is less than 5 feet, and electrified. Sounds just like a horse, doesn't it??? Her markings are beautiful-they call that "Badger" markings-my female has the dark ears. She also has some tan blotches which is also acceptable within the breed. They are very, very loyal, and exceptionally smart dogs-know their family, and will protect chickens, ducks, horses, and kids with all their heart. Definately gentle giants with huge personality -can you tell I just love my two! [ 12-27-2007, 07:03 AM: Message edited by: horsey_dezray ]
  2. Freezing Fog??

    Yep, we've had that stuff here too. Can't see 100 ft infront of your face. Took me 1 hour 15 minutes to do a 30 minute drive last week-between not being able to see, and going slowly because of icey roads. We're sure having a fun Winter, aren't we????
  3. 2007 Midwest Ice Storm

    So far, the ice has been really bad, Columbia and North to Bowling Green-3/4 of an inch -lots of power outages. Today, round 2 is coming, and they say it will reach from the Ozarks--yes, Osage Beach up to Pike County-Bowling Green, MO. Here's to hoping everyone continues to weather the storm...sounds like a battefield outside-every time the wind stirs. Trees popping and cracking-losing big branches to mother nature's wrath. Hope we continue to have power today...
  4. 2007 Midwest Ice Storm

    Please keep Missouri in your prayers today, as we continue to have a terrible icestorm. Pray that all our horseman/horsewomen, and their trusty steeds will come out of this safely. The Ice Storm warning continues through 6 pm today, and some places have been icing since yesterday early afternoon. I'm NW of St. Louis, about 1 hour, and we've already got at least 1/2 inch of the junk-North of me is worse. It's hovering between 29 and 31 degrees steady-even had a ridiculous thunderstorm in the midst of it last night. OHHH, the lights blinked...gotta go. In our area we still have power, but I suspect by sundown tonight we won't. And the animals are safely tucked into the barn-and I won't take the chance of walking a horse out. In preparation, I even moved the 70 gallon water tank into the aisleway-for extra water incase I can't use my well-got horses, dogs, ducks, and chickens to water. Time to get moving-gonna get ready to go out and feed the critters, and will sit down and slide down to the barn....I think it's going to be a long way down...90 feet to be exact...and it's a 9 foot grade down from house to barn. Should be interesting... So, please keep us in your prayers...snow is bad but ice is treacherous. HD [ 12-09-2007, 08:04 AM: Message edited by: horsey_dezray ]
  5. Has anyone ever used devil's claw?

    Me, too! I've used for a foundered horse too, with good success. I think the trick is to keep them on it-it is easier than most convential drugs on their insides. Looks as though, you've done a great job with this horse-keep up the good work. Dez

  7. Arabian Horse Association or American Welara Pony Society

    The Arabian Horse Assn., is pretty good about sharing information about half Arabians -as long as you know the name. It's too bad you don't have her papers-I hate when a horse loses it's heritage. Couldn't tell you about the Welara Registry. Good luck with your search.
  8. Secret Santa Package

    QH_Luv_R...I made it too easy for yah, huh? Yes, you quessed right! I know, I'm only around here occasionally, so I wanted to give you enough clues-so the Ozland logo gave me away? Hope you enjoy it all... There's a little history behind the corn-cob ornament...a little ole' lady makes those along with Nativities -all from corn cobs. She does awesome work...if you ever want something really, really different-you'll have to write her-that's why I sent along her card on the horse. Since, I searched and searched on you -to find you perfect gifts-another story comes to mind...before the name scramble. I was shopping-found the little book along with the rocking horse-and then searched on you-and a post from along time ago said, something about that you loved quotes. Mudder and I thought that so strange that I bought the book before I even knew who my SS person was... Hope you enjoy it all, and hope you enjoy the dip! Merry Christmas!

  9. Frequent Lameness

    What does your vet and farrier say? If your farrier is knowledgeable-I would have started there-as it seemed to be in the hooves. And after so much time has passed, it's hard to give you any ideas. When he was lame on different hooves, would he turn easily in a circle close to you or would he struggle? If it appears again, I would have the vet out to do a lameness evaluation. He/She will suggest different methods to go into this further, if you want an answer-maybe x-rays and so forth.

  11. Best multi-vitamin supplement out there for a horse?

    I've been using Vita-Ferm for Equines for about 3 years. It's easy to feed, and is $34 for a 40lb sack, I think-goes along way. Hooves, hair and coat all look good, and it also maintains their weight well. You'll have to find a sales representative near you to get it-I don't think Farm & Home type stores carry it on the shelf. If you can't locate one-Pm me and I'll get with my person here in Missouri and we'll find you one in your area.

  15. Secret Santa Package

    Guess what? I got home and there was a surprise waiting for me! Didn't recognize that return address-so I knew it had to be from my S. S. To my joy, the box was filled with some awesome things-pictures to follow this weekend-don't have digital, sorry. My S.S. is from New Mexico, so I'll be searching to find out who you are so I can send you a big thank you and an air hug!!!! I got: Trail of Painted Ponies-Las Vegas!(Mind been wanting one since they came out-and never bought one-so this is my first!) Also, in the box was a very nice, silver necklace with a horse charm, a pair of cool western socks, gourmet coffee, and a beautiful coffee mug to enjoy it in. And how in the world, did you guess, that I liked honey? Yes, Honey from her part of the country-that I'm sure will be delightful! There was also a very pretty-(I'll call it) a paperweight -made of wood-but with a horse carving on it. (How could you have guessed that I also collect horse trinkets like that?)Well, I looked at this box again this morning, and to my delight it opened! Inside is a totem stone with a horse on it! (I absolutely love boxes with horses on them....I collect them.) Of course, there was also included an awesome card, and a few clues written in it. I've not figured out who you are yet but... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Secret Santa was sure good to me this year! [ 11-29-2007, 09:46 AM: Message edited by: horsey_dezray ]
