New things.

Just trying some new things lately. Chester isn't old enough for riding, but we're going to the AHA show in Tulsa this week. We've really worked hard for "sport horse in hand" and my daughter has worked hard for "walk trot hunter pleasure - 10 and under"
Wish us luck!

The Mustang Diaries Part 2

Well, Sulphur's Nataqua, or Taqi as I call him is finally letting us touch him. I haven't been getting out to see him as often as I should since he's 35 windy miles away, but Pete has been spending time with him at feeding time. (Pete calls him Taco) He has been eating out of our hands and will let us scratch his neck and touch his ears. Pete has also been running his hands down his legs and feet. Speaking of which, he is very long and has some hoof that has been breaking out on the sides. I… Continue

Went over to her and stood there min or two. Then collapsed and gave up her life. We are very sad to… Continue

Taffy one of my enduance horses has colliced

On Wednesday Marys horse Taffy Cooliced. We took her to the Vet around 7:00 pm. He gave her a shot for pain. Did all the other things they do for colic. We left her over night. On Thursday she seamed to be doing a little better but he wanted to keep her over night again. She would not eat any thing and only one small stool. I was still confident that she would be all right. However this morning the vet called and things had turned worse. That we should prepare for the end. We brought her home… Continue

Morgan endurance horse

I'm originally fron N.H. and am now living in Florida. I have a 7 year old Morgan mare. So far I have done CTR's. I hope by the end of the Florida SEDRA season I can do a 50 mile endurance. My horse is doing well except she doesn't handle the heat and humidity as well as the Arabs. Also her pulse tend to be higher and can be erratic and jump around.She is always looking around at everything at the vet checks. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?

• Behavioral issues

Eight horses enjoyed a sampling of the work and here are some of the… Continue
