Skip to comments.The FreeRepublic Saddle Club thread - Thread THREE!
Posted on 12/30/2004 7:01:16 PM PST by HairOfTheDog
Free Republic has a lot of horse people that have found each other on other threads . And since we all like to talk horses, how about a thread where it is not off-topic, but is THE topic?
This is a horse chat thread where we share ideas, ask for input from other horsemen, and talk about our riding and horse-keeping. We have a lot of different kinds of riders and horses, and a lot to share. In the previous threads we have had a great time talking through lessons, training, horse lamenesses, illnesses and pregnancies... and always sharing pictures and stories.
I always have a link to this thread on my profile page, so if you have something to say and can't find the thread in latest posts look for it there and wake the thread up!
I also have a ping list for horse threads that are of interest, and Becky pings everyone most mornings. Let Becky (Paynoattentionmanbehindthecurtain) and/or me know if you would like to be on the ping list. As FreeRepublic is a political site, our politics and other issues will probably blend in . There are many issues for horsemen that touch politics land use, animal rights/abuse cases that make the news . Legislation that might affect horse owners.
So... like the previous threads, this is intended as fun place to come and share stories, pictures, questions and chit-chat, unguided and unmoderated and that we come together here as friends. There are lots of ways of doing things and we all have our quirks, tricks and specialties that are neat to learn about.
New folk and occasional posters, jump right in and introduce yourselves, tell us about your horses, and post pictures if you've got them!
We're living on a western desert horse property but haven't yet taken the plunge. Little girls here are horse crazy though. Can you add me to your ping list please?
At first glance I thought this thread was about the Australian tweeny kid show "The Saddle Club" and thought..whoa those folks are hard core.
Heh... I've caught that show a couple times! Sure... please join in on the thread... Becky pings every morning if you would like that.
Thank you :)
I don't have much to contribute but questions. :)
I'm in the western desert too - the northern Nevada part of it.
I send everyone a morning ping to keep you current. Would you like on that?
BTW, welcome. We like questions. But beware:), we all have differnt opinions and sometimes contradictory advise. But it's all in fun:)
And never go to the elves for advice, for they shall tell you both 'yes' and 'no'. Oh wait, wrong thread for that.
LOL..doesn't sound like the wrong thread to me:)
Any pregnant momma or baby horse updates for the new thread? Got pictures yet?
I disagree, we never contradict each other.
I'm in the western Mohave about an hour's drive north of Los Angeles. Hi!
I have posted any pictures in a while so here goes:
This is Rusty one of my geldings.
This is Rocky are stud. The daughter of a friend riding.
And this is Harley, my other gelding.Sister of the daughter of the friend riding:)
What happended???? It didn't preview like that.
I made a vet appointment with the horse vet to come out Tuesday.... teeth and sheath for Bay, annual checkups for all the others, shots, and he even said he'd bring a shot of something or another for the Homer dog's itching.
I ~want~ to try to figure out how to take a couple snapshots of my vet while he's here. Not sure what excuse I'd use for taking pictures but I'd like to post them for y'all. He's so cute :~D Married to a very nice wife who is cute as can be, but he's still very very cute. ;~D
Just missed a < p > mark... only shows if the window is wide ;~D
REally, how do you know that?? I went back and previewed it again and it was fine.
I made the window wide and then narrowed it again :~D... The preview screen is narrow.
That's such a cool picture of Rusty... It just looks like you are talking about the pic of Rocky if you don't know 'em like we do :~D
Always ready to look at a cute horse vet:)
On what possible premise could I take pictures while he's here? Just got a new camera for Christmas? Have a niece interested in Veterinary school? what? Heh...
Mack has changed something on the computer, I'm not familiar with the new way to do stuff, so I haven't posted new pictures to the site. I have some new ones. Maybe tomorrow he'll help me figure out what to do.
The new camera thing sounds good. Or tell him your making an album of Bay since he's getting older, and want pictures of him with his vet?
Maybe that will work :~D
I'll try. I wanted to when he was here before when Bay was colicky, and I felt dreadfully guilty for thinking about it, because I was really worried about my horse :~D
Welcome :) and hi,
I'm about 25 miles east of Carson City, NV.
I always say that :)
Tell him you are doing an album of all the animals and want to include their favorite doctor also. That would be a great album anyway.
LOL Great minds :)
I'm just afraid I'll blush like a school girl and he'll never buy it.
I go back with this vet since he worked at the dog and cat hospital I take the dogs to. He once picked a flea off my neck that had hopped off an infested cat. Oh - and he and I gave my labrador an enema together once. :~D He said at the time that he was really looking forward to his own horse practice.
ecurbh, in his general comfortable unthreatened way, thinks he can tell why I get so silly around him ;~D
Nothing new yet. I think we may have a couple of weeks yet. Hope to have pics of Adge up by the weekend.
Good - we look forward to those pictures!
LOL...I walked away from the computer for a minute after my last post, when I came back and reloaded and saw your post at the bottom I thought it was mine.
Well get ecurbh to ask and take the picture, like the album is a surprise for you:)
First foal born on our Nevada ranch, TE Mighty Independent "Indy", with DIL and I at playday show in October.
Great! - we haven't seen that pic before!
Oh - well, say you have to go into the house to get the checkbook and take a picture from the house with a telephoto?
Nice looking horse:)
Are we anxious to see this guy or what?
:) I posted and then when the page came up I thought, well that lady can read minds.
You know, the thing is, even after all this buildup, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
I'll get a pic. Somehow ;~D
Thanks. One of the very few pictures where I'm in front of a camera instead of behind it.
We know you have good taste, we've seen pictures of your hubby and your horses.
We like seeing a face to the people we talk to too:)
I truly enjoy all the pictures on this thread - I like meeting the people and the horses.
Love it - looks like he's getting a shower on a hot day.
Yeah, he gets hosed off a lot when it's hot. Loves it. I actually caught him pawing the hose till he'd put a hole in it, then stand in the spray. Sad thing is I thought the dog was doing it, and was always hollering at him for it everytime I found a new hose. Then one day I saw Rusty doing it.
