My Horse Forum
I thought it would be really neat to see everybody and their ponies in fun costumes! Post as many pics of you and your horse in costume as you want. Once I get about 20 pics, we will have a vote on who has the best and most creative costume! Here is mine:
This was taken on Halloween of the year Smarty Jones almost won the Triple Crown... My Morgan gelding Sparky and I dressed up as Smarty's rival, Rock Hard Ten and his jockey Gary Stevens! I made my saddle pad and partially made my jockey silks! Then I took him down in our riding ring for a pic... the sand makes it look kinda like a track. Anyways, Whatcha think?
I look forward to seeing everybody's pics!
I found all these old books at a garage sale.
I came across a "Little Black Sambo" book
For those of you who do not know, baaaaaad racism these days to make such a book.
One could not.
I was wondering if anyone knew if this had any value?
Or where I could go to find out?
Went to look for Copyright date and it said MCMLIII
Is that some sort of Roman numeral #?
I scanned it
I just love going to garage sales and digging in people's junk
Okay, this is kinda dumb, but I'm curious...my sister thinks that I am walking around on a broken leg. Here's the story...
I went riding with some friends and did a stupid, stupid thing...I put my whole foot into the stirrup as I was mounting...big stupid, cause the darn horse decided to take off, and I couldn't pull my big butt up into the saddle...so I decided to take the fall...landed on my butt...thankfully in soft grass...but then I had a pain above my ankle...not sure if it twisted coming out of the stirrup, or the horse ran into it, stepped on it, or scraped it with her hoof...all I know is it hurts and is swelling. I could walk with just a little limp. Well that was over a week ago. And yes I still went riding.
I still have no ankle, and it seems that the pain is worse when I walk now. It hurts when I touch it or accidentally hit it and the pain is radiating now. And it swells even more if I'm on it too long.
I know I should go to the doc, but I'm not medically...
Okay so someone recommended that I give my horse the 5 day supply of this stuff and I know NOTHING about it. Not sure why I would give my girl a five day supply of wormer for any reason though. Have any of you used this and if so what did you think about it?
I found this wile having a surf on the net, and thought it was a MUST READ!!

The vet put staples in it and two weeks later when he took them out the wound started to open up again, athough i bathed it i couldnt seem to keep the infection at bay. I was advised by one of my friends to try bathing it on acv which i did. I would bath it daily and then put Manuka honey on afterwards. in two weeks the infection was gone completely and after for weeks there is now a very thin scar and all the hair has grown back, you would never know how bad the cut has been. I now feed it to all my horses and sprey in on their legs to help keep the flies at bay."
