I don't scream at my horse, and knock on wood, she doesn't kick me either.





I thought this was too funny.

I quit smoking a year before I retired. Been retired a little over a year, and put on a few extra pounds. Got this little girl 5 months after I retired. Would like to be able to get on her when it is time to break her to ride, without breaking her back. Not to mention being able to get my foot up into the stirrup. I NEED HELP!!

I think that's a good plan to wait until spring. Try the hill work until then and hopefully she won't need it at all.

I am feeling better thank you. Thankfully I started feeling better on Sunday afternoon since I had a colic to see at 7pm and had to go back at midnight and 7am. He was quite sick but pulled through :-)

Oh, I am so glad that you are feeling blessed! God has us go through the fire to make us more refined for Him and it seems that you realize that. I am much closer to Him too, after my ordeal last year, the only thing that was any comfort to me was the scriptures.

Glad that you have plenty of food to eat and plenty of wood to burn to stay warm, and your horse for company. I am so happy for you that you will be able to ride her, soon! emoticon

Life has not been treating you well, lately. I know it has been tough for you but you are obviously a survivor! Huge HUGS from me to you! Good that you have been spending the time with your filly, that bond will be very helpful once you start to ride.

You have been very busy splitting all that wood! I hope that you have a mechanized splitter, like we do! We have a pile of wood stacked up and ready to go but the wood stove is not yet installed. We picked up the stovepipe we ordered to go through the ceiling space yesterday and Matt will be putting that in. Right now, he is sanding the taping and bedding he did yesterday on the spare bedroom. So much he has to do, but he just keeps at it steadily.

Hope your filly continues to do OK and hope that the locked stifle isn't causing her too much discomfort! emoticon to you on this difficult day! emoticon

So sorry to hear that your mare has a locked stifle. I have been very fortunate and never had to deal with that, so don't know anything about it. Good luck! Keep us posted on what happens....... emoticon

I believe that's the surgery my boss used to do. I haven't done it myself. Usually it was pretty successful. I have also seen injections done in the lateral (or outside) patellar tendon to tighten that up. I would recommend hill work and putting her in your hilliest paddock first. I have had a lot of success with that recommendation. Also trotting in straight lines can help once you've worked her up to it. Is she only a 2 year old? They sometimes outgrow it as they get older and bulk up a bit more. I know we would also occasionally use anabolic steroids to help them gain muscle mass but that was usually only when the owners were in a bit of a rush to fix things.
