A Vote and A Note from Shybang
Thanks for the encouragement about the job/career change. I am sure it will all work out. I am being a silly human trying to control everything myself when I know all along that the Lord will take the control. Was Angel checked by the vet before she was bred? I had Jazz checked out and cultured to be sure she had no infection or bad bacteria present in her before the breeding. If she was checked, I am sure the vet would have alerted if there was evidence of anything that could cause potential problems. I heard so many horror stories when Jazz was in foal. For some reason people like to do that but I kept reminding myself that there are far more happy healthy foals born than there are ones with problems. It would be foolish not to be aware of the bad things and what you can do to help prevent them but chances are more in your favor that everything will go without any trouble at all. My friend and riding buddy owns YB Painted Ranch in Waller, TX. and she has done breeding of paints & quarterhorses for a number of years. She's had no mishaps with mares giving birth. She has one mare who has a tendency to retain part or all of the placenta which can be detrimental to the mare but knowing this and having the vet out to make sure that all of the placenta is out takes care of that problem. If the mare does not pass it, it can be removed. The importance here is with time so if there is no placenta within 30 minutes call the vet. Better to have the vet out anyway so they can be sure there is none of it left behind. I located Jazz's placenta in the field and put it in a heavy plastic bag so that ants etc couldn't damage it before the vet came. It's incredible how heavy that placenta is. When you have time go to and check out the website. Lots of foal pics to get you even more excited. Jazz and Shybang have pages in the mares section and they appear in the Friends & Fun section and Shybang is in the Training and Show sections. the YB stands for Yauch Barrett - her last name and mine. The YB Painted Ranch was a dream we came up with and she made it a reality. I wasn't able to go in with her on it financially but she kept my initial as part of the name since it was 'our' idea and she used me as a consultant on horse issues. She has enough knowledge now that she doesn't even need my brain any more. It's a nice site. To answer your question, I have 5 acres which includes my yard. About 3 1/2 acres are horse pasture and 1 1/2 is the yard. Wow, 3 mortgages is alot to be responsible for. I owned a condo which I leased for 12 years - it was where I lived before Joe and I got married. I used the rent to pay the mortgage and paid it off in 13 years. I gave it to Joe in the divorce so that he wouldn't try to force the sale of the house or try to take part of my retirement. To be honest, I was tired of being a landlord although my tenant is a wonderful person. Having the responsibility of the house and land is enough for me on my own. Well, on
