First, M'lou, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Secondly, my horses would say . . . "Any treats in your pockets? How come you don't spend time with us anymore?" Sadly, after having two kids, I don't get to spend as much time with my horses as I use to.

M'lou - so sorry to hear of the passing of your horse. I give you a lot of credit to know it was time. **HUGS** to you...

Now if my horses could talk, my Bitsy would be saying, "Let me in!! It's cold and wet out here - I WANT MY STALL!!" And Cruiser would be saying, "Please put me in the same pasture as Bitsy so I can chase her..." LOL

If Wilma (APHA Miss Wild Will, age 30) could talk, she would say,

"Thank you, M'lou. I rest in peace".

On September 22nd, we put my old girl down, and 2 days later my donkey loaded up and went to a new home with lots of pasture buddies. I do not plan on keeping any equines here any more, so we have been ripping out the old fences. The pasture is becoming just a field for the deer to visit. Wilma rests there in a deep, tidy grave with a small stone set flush with the ground, which says "Peace". The rhythm of my days is so different without chores and constant checking on my mare to see if she is stuck down on the ground and unable to get up again without my help. She could not make it through another winter like that. Sigh. I have kept horses for 33 years, over half my life (I'm 60.). This is a big change for me, but I am very tired of the responsibility of caring for horses. I had a good run, and experienced my childhood dream.

Blessings to you all, and give your favorite horse a kiss for me!

Yesterday she was in TO with 2 other horses. I was trying to get one of the other ones out and she would not back up out of the way. I finally got her to back off and proceeded to take the other one out when she rushed forward and bit him so he jumped sideways giving her a clear path to bolt out. She ran around with her head and tail as far up in the air as she could manage. And of course did not want to be caught!

I've never used a massage therapist or chiropractor for my horses, but sure would if I thought that's what was going on with them. I'd think just running your hands lightly over her should give you some idea if she's got some "oh-no, don't touch me there" spots that may be hurting her. Is she very old? I'd also watch to see if the farrier is being gentle enough for a sore horse. He may be thinking more in terms of being firm enough to "make her behave" and only make it worse. Does she give you a hard time about handling her feet too, or just the farrier? If you think she's showing signs of arthritis, you might think about putting her on a senior feed and giving her some joint supplements. Let us know how she does!

I dont know anything about arthoritis but when ever my dd horse has anything wrong we check with our pony rubber. The woman who rubs out the horse every 6 weeks is a genious. I know you dont have her there but are her joints swollen ? Or hot ? If you put sore no more on them does she respond ? Or cold hosing her ? If she doesnt, check her feet for sores and ask the farrier to check the hoof walls. You can palpetat the spine easily enough. Feel down her spine on both sides using your fingers, about 3-4 inches from the actual spine. If she flinches when you press there she may need a chrioprator. I like my pony rubber because she is both, if you have someone like that in your area, I would invest in it. Cost less than a vet and the horse gets something out of it every time. They also get to know your horse. My horse will perk way up when he hears her voice.

well I am glad you are here. I want to lose weight so that I can get on a horse that will not run away when he sees me and that when I get on him he will not be squashed flat when I crawl off.

I get to go and lunge my daughters horse today, she is working pony camp. There are times in the round pen when that horse just stops, puts his hoof on his hip, flips the other one in my direction, blows his forelock off his forehead and says " Are you done yet " ?

..." whatta mean I gotta work today? I've been on stall rest for 2 months, eating buckets of apples and carrots, getting turned out to roll in fresh dust and graze on yummy green grasses.... and now you want me to do what? work!? you ARE kidding, right?"

If Decker could talk he would be saying, "empty your pockets I know you have a cookie, I will settle for an apple but a cookie is best. Okay, dont empty your pockets I will check them for you. Okay now turn around so I can sniff the back pockets."

Or "no cookie, no kissy"
