My Re-write of FEI Release for Kentucky Cup

Posted on October 14, 2009 at 8:18pm 5 Comments

This is my edit of the official News Release from FEI for the Kentucky Cup. I think the release reads like the society page of a small town newspaper that is trying to suck up to the people who buy all their advertising. The name dropping of royalty is rediculous, and there is NO mention of horses. When I cover a ride I would say something like "Jane Doe won the 100 riding her 7 year old 15.2 Anglo-Arab, Lightning". After which I might describe where she got the horse and some insight into what… Continue

Am I becoming a rescuer??

Posted on June 5, 2009 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

Oh boy,

Here I go again. I never set out to be a rescue person but it seems to be happening to me. I rescued my boy 7 two years ago and he's doing well but sometimes just doesn't seem to suit *me*...kind of like having to wear somebody else's style clothes instead of your own, so I have just been keeping my eyes open and looking at the photos of horses my friends have gone to check out.



So, a while back Kara Disbrow in TN who was on the great horse hunt writes me and says she… Continue

Bill finished our living quarters!

Posted on September 28, 2008 at 7:37pm 0 Comments

OK I'm adding this for those of you who are thinking you'd like to do this but don't know how. Someone on ridecamp mentioned the website: http://todd.redwrench.com as a good how to site for making your own living quarters. All we wanted was to insulate but once Bill saw this website he just got carried away. This will ruin my reputation for roughing it but I suppose I can stand it. :-)



First he "stripped it in" like framing a house. The hardest part of that is making yourself realize… Continue

Time to ride!

Posted on January 15, 2008 at 10:34am 3 Comments

Looks like for the first time in a long time I'm going to be conditioning two horses for myself. You can just about turn back to 2000 or so to find when I've been able to focus on my own horses not *our* (mine and Josie's) horses. Back then Kaboot was in his prime and I could go to lots of rides. Then the mother daughter thing started..then as Kaboot's career wound down the "looking for another keeper" thing started and it's amazing how the years can get away from you while you're just…

As to when "Six" will do a 100...YIKES! I am actually planning to do a 100 with him and hopefully it will be this year. I'm sure you and Jody have some suggestions as to the best ones for first time 100's and know someone who'd be willing to mentor a "newbie" to 100's right?????? I was just happy to not miss dinner after missing dinner at Million Pines! :)

It's so funny you say that about "7" because my friend Amber and I were talking about Jedi while doing the 50 @ Million Pines and I said to her "You know Jedi has everything going against him...he's cow hocked, short necked, short backed, high stepping (not to mention 1/2 blind), but he seems to excel (not speed wise yet obviously) in this sport despite it all." I guess what he lacks in comformational excellence he's made up for in pure grit, determination and heart because the little bugger will just keep going and going and going. Then I saw where you said the same thing about "7". Wierd huh?

Hi Angie,
i was looking at your pic's and i was wondering what kind of saddle you use? It looks like a really good one.

He's doing great considering he's blind in that eye. We did GERA in June and he did really well. We had planned to do both days, but my friends horse had to be taken to UGA @ 3:30 a.m. and since we had been up 24 hours at that point I decided to ride over there with her and didn't make it back in time to start on Saturday. We are planning to do the VA Highlands ride and then on to Biltmore. Did I see you were looking to sell "7"?

The corneal ulcer was more than likely a result of scratching his eye on something or something blowing into his eye and scratching the cornea. Unfortunately, there are lots of bacteria and fungi that live on the surface of the eye and once there is an opening they invade. I went out to get him from the pasture to go to Red Barn on Thursday the 26th of March and found him with his eye swollen shut and weeping. I took him straight to the vet and they stained the eye and gave me 5 different meds that had to be put in every 2 hours. Well, he's not a good patient so I had to take him back that same afternoon for them to install a sub-palp lavage to administer the meds that added 1 more med for a total of 6 every 2 hours. I literally just hooked my trailer up to the power at the barn and lived there until we went back that saturday. The vet said it was improving and we could go to every 6 hours on the meds. We went on like that until Thursday. The lesion still looked the same on that Thursday morning, but when I picked him up that afternoon to take him it looked WAY worse. They immediately wanted me to take him to UGA, but when I called down there and talked to them it was going to be almost $7K for the surgery and meds and hospital stay. Now, I have REALLY come to love the little guy, but there was NO way I was doing that. So, my local vet clinic said they could do the flap surgery there and worst case scenario if things went wrong they would just remove the eye. I left him in their care and the surgery went as well as expected. It has been 1 week and 5 days and it is still pretty gross and swollen and draining like mad. He is wearing an eyesaver mask, but is totally blind on that side and will be permanently now. We will go back to the vet this weekend for them to take a look at his progress. I'll keep you posted.

Well, I hate to say that you will probably not be seeing Jamag Tinian (aka #6)again anytime soon at a ride. :( He is having surgery as we speak to put a flap over a corneal lesion that was unresponsive to medical therapy. We are hoping to save the eye, but if they have to take it out they will. I'm afraid this may intensify his basically untrusting nature. I'll let you know.

Thanks. We'll see what happens.

Not sure! I am going to use it on my Anglo and just wanted to know if there
was a way to adjust the angle of the panels. I don't have it yet so it may not
even need any finagling.

Angie,
I just bought a used Ortho-Flex. Do you have a saddle fitter that you use to
adjust your saddles? I can't find anyone in the Atlanta area.

Thanks

Hey, you know life is too short to wait for good weather to ride!!!
How is 7 doing?
Glad to hear your trailer is ready to go and you are looking for a new truck to pull it! That means work is stable.
Good to hear from you and don't forget....
Ride till you puke!
