Candy Canes! Doh! Why didn't I think of that ... right, I've been walking past gobs in the stores. Oh, well.

Farrier: Met with a new-my-herd fella yesterday. I hated to leave my prior farrier, but things just haven't been working out for the past few months. Both horses were well behaved and showed no objection to the new guy. All feet looked great by the end of the visit. I had hoped to ride today but got caught up with lots of "please do this favor for me before you leave for vacation" requests. I've been alternating between battling emails, packing, running last minute errands. Maybe I can slip away for a ride in the morning -- I sure hope so.

Happy New Year, everyone!

DD gives her horse a peppermint after every riding lesson.

She rode the owner's $30,000 show horse tonight during her lesson and the entire time I was thinking, "please don't let anything happen to the horse, please don't let anything happen to the horse, please don't let anything happen to the horse!!"

I wasn't the least bit worried about DD.

I was looking through old posts when I was here before and it seems I posted here in 2010 - LOL. Well we went from horse leasing to outright ownership. Unfortunately the lease didn't work out for many reasons (we even left that barn) - but everything worked out for the best and we now have a 7yr old OTTB who was rescued from a kill pen at an auction - and he is boarded at a fantastic barn where we are super happy. He's been rehabilitated and he is awesome - I'm just as smitten with him as my daughter is. I even started taking lessons and I ride now with my daughter (it's never too late to start). We had the opportunity to do a show last summer where my daughter won a ribbon. It's been a great turn of events!

Carousel of Progress you know that weight loss machine with the vibrating belt around the butt maybe he has one hidden with a towel





Want to hear all about the cruise & pics closest I ever came to a cruise was Circle Line ferry to Statue of Liberty in NY Was it a Disney Cruise ?

Congrats to all involved! I have two OT Trotters (Standardbred). More than a few folks have commented that both horses seem to understand what grace has been extended to them in the next-chance careers. I'm sure yours does also.

Of COURSE it was a Disney cruise!!! I'll post a few pics as soon as I edit them. I will also get some pics of Ivan on Saturday when I attempt to find his true color under the mud that is covering him now!

My daughter recently bought a new horse. I won't say what he cost, but he was listed at one point for $60,000. She did NOT pay anywhere near that!

Eight days after the horse arrived at the trainer's barn, he tore skin and meat off the back of his front leg (from just above the fetlock down to the hoof).

It was just a freak accident. Fortunately, the worst he did to the tendons or ligaments was one slight nick. He's been recuperating since September. The hide is almost completely back now but will be scarred. Thank goodness for Shapley's!
