I just trail, happy hack or whatever you like to call it.
Dressage bores me to tears, and I am not brave or competitive enough to jump, showing with my horse is very breed specific and there are no shows in Canada for us, anyway, he isn't good enough. I used to be pretty fanatical about hunting...
I will never keep horses in again, if l had one that would really benefit then it would just be in a crew yard. My reasons are plain and simple, l am lazy, I don't do mucking out or clock watching anymore, l haven't for 15 years. I hated having to turn out or bring in because l had to ( yard...
If l had the spare cash l might in one field that is too steep to safely get a vehicle and trailer in, you wouldn't catch me going in there with a barrow. I harrow my dry lots though. Going rates? Hmm, minimum wage l guess.
I do not think it is unlucky, if something is going to happen it is going to happen whatever the horse is called.
Do I think you should change a registered name ? No. Absolutely not.
It is the horses identity, the breeders put time, money and effort to getting your horse on the ground, they...
:( I think making an appointment and counting down the days is very hard, different from having to make an instant decision.
Always a sucky decision to make, but I do feel relieved when I have made it.
Thinking of you and I hope that you enjoy your days with her, and that all goes peacefully.
I have done all sorts, trekking, riding schools, event yards, endurance, racing lastly had my own boarding facility for 8 years, great clients, my own boss, my own hours - the worst part, after 8 years, 7 days a week, and about 7 nights away (over that time) I was knackered. Hated horses. Hadn't...
Lucky you, enjoy, we are still in total lockdown, no eating out for us, unless it is a takeout :( Really not quite the same.
Also, doubly lucky you because you have proper bacon, not the fatty skinny travesty that passes for bacon here. :D
I use it all the time, as everyone says, get it under the tongue and it is very effective. I have never had it not work although sometimes it is trial and error on dosage.
I always have a couple of syringes spare.
Aha, thankyou! Sounds very challenging and a massive achievement, my legs would literally fall off, l can't walk a mile up a road without my knees threatening to fall apart.
3000' ! Trivia here, there is nowhere in my Province even as high as that.
There was a video floating around a while ago of the rescue of a Welsh mare with foal at foot on the marshes ( which are tidal, she would have drowned) She had got a back foot tangled in her long and knotted mane, probably not a one off scenario with wild/ ferals.
I keep his mane medium length and dirty, I spend a lot of time grabbing hanks of it, we spend a lot of time airborne :D I couldn't wrap my hand in a pulled mane.
I have to say that I have shortened the carthorse's mane, and chopped all her feather off, she looks almost like a proper old...
