Saw You on the Ann Arbor page and wanted to stop and say hello. Was so excited when i saw someone wanting to have get together and small support group, and then realized it was from 2014 :( . Have long way to go but know am only going to get there by making myself start. So i am back; and looking for support and others on the same journey. 128 days ago
AHA! I suspected he let himself out as us horse girls are very careful with gates, especially on the stallions! Glad you figured it out. I remember you telling me about the hunter shooting one of your horses, he must have been half blind to think he was a deer. Glad you got some kind of recompense even though it wasn't much.
Yes, our cremello paint stallion used to love to roll in the black mud, half the time he was half black with mud! I would take him out and bathe him and when I let him loose, he headed right for the mud! Impossible to keep clean!! I understand your pain with him rolling in his urine all the time! 180 days ago
So was he actually out with the mares? Do you think he bred any of them? What a nightmare that would be to find something like that. We kept our stallion in a separate run totally from the mares, and he also had his own barn. He could easily see the mares though and they could come up to the 6 foot alley which separated their pen from his. We hand bred everything so had control over who got bred.
Your boy was good though to agree to go with you when he was out there having so much fun! I don't think ours would have been that agreeable! Thank goodness you got him back in his stall without him hurting you. Do you think that he managed to trip the latch on his stall? We had chains around all of our gates that kept the horses in, so if they got the latch open, the chain held the gate shut.
Yes, we like to leave Texas in the summer but the rest of the year, we LOVE it here! I would NEVER go back to Michigan to live now, knowing that Texas is so much milder weather wise. (that and a few other reasons )
