Worry Wart

A couple days ago, I went to work with Chester and he was limping. Not to bad, just enough that I could tell he was uncomfortable. I really worried about it. I worried he pulled a muscle, that he got kicked, that something could be like really wrong. Today though, he's just about over it-appears to be a stone bruise and I worried for a lot of nothing...but really, I probably worry just as much about my animals as I do my children and I think nine little ones is enough already! Does anyone know… Continue

Traveling Help

I am going to Boyne City, Michigan to pick up my new Horses Anglo-arabian Mare. I will be bringinig her back to Laramie Wyoming. I need to find some stoping places along I80 to get her out and spend the night.
I am not sure how far I can haul her each day. Dose any one know where I can find overnight resting spots? And how many hours can I safely haul my horse?

Bowed Tendon Day 6- Adventures in re-wrapping the leg

I was reviewing my vet bill from the ultrasound and bowed tendon exam and treatment and noting with some chagrin that I was charged $50.00 just for the sweat bandage wrap the vet tech performed on my mare's leg. However, after taking off that bandage today, and applying my own non-techie version of a standing bandage, I've changed my mind considerably.

First, I had a heck of a time getting the sweat bandage off, even. At first I tried cutting it off, but fugetabutit. Too thick.… Continue

Day 4 of the Healing Process

Dear Riding Friends,

I need a cyber-hug! Or a Hallmark card and flowers, or something. I'm just pathetic, I'm so blue. When I went out to see Jazzy today, to give her the bute dosage for her bowed tendon, she looked so depressed that I wanted to cry. Maybe I'm just projecting my own depression on her, but maybe not. She wouldn't eat her carrots, but maybe that's because the bute left a bad taste in her mouth. Since I got home I've been drowning my sorrows in salt water taffy and… Continue

Witch Way

Annabelle and I traveled to Stillwater, OK this past weekend to ride Witch Way. The AHA Championship was held at Lake Carl Blackwell last week and they had done a lot of work on the trails over the past few months. I like riding at Lake Carl Blackwell and the park management has really been good to us there. Belinda did a great job as ride manager. We had perfect weather for riding, but the rain on Thursday really took its toll on the trail. Annabelle was a trooper and completed the ride in 7th… Continue

New here, new to endurance. Haven't actually done any endurance rides yet, but getting started. Did meet some very nice people at AHA Nationals show that had competed in the endurance rides but didn't get their names. Wish I would have. They were very helpful with a few questions that I did ask. The endurance riders got to present the flags the final night and received their National Champion and Reserve trophies and ribbons in the arena. Thought that was neet, don't know if they have ever done… Continue

Buzz Kill: Hallowed Weenie May be the End of Our Endurance Career

It was not the ride I'd envisioned, to say the least. It was the final ride for our Rookie Horse/Rookie Rider eligibility year, and I believe that we were leading the two other elegible rookie horse/riders by 10 or more points. How exciting!

We'd started this year at the ToughSucker ride with our first LD, and were ending it at HallowedWeenies by doing two 55's back-to-back for the first time. I was dreaming of doing the Tevis Cup in 3 years. I'm in my early 50's, so I feel blessed to be… Continue
