ONLY IN CANADA, EH...
Hi Sylvia, well, I thought about kicking chains, but the treatment has to fit the horses personality. You have to know Charlie, he really is a very sensitive horse, we put a fetlock ring on him and he went NUTS, he was going to hurt himself even in his stall, he would for sure do damage with a kicking chain, plus my plan is not to terrorize him. He is doing better with the pads on the walls, and under saddle I have to say, I am not noticing any sort of lameness at all. We really have had some crazy weather this summer, I'm sure I mentioned it before, I know everyone is afraid of something, my thing is STORMS, can't explain it, it comes over me like a wave, terrible anxiety, uneasiness, I pace, I can't relax, once we had a tornado lock down at work, it was not a pretty site, everyone I work with is now aware of my phobia. Today is suppose to be nice, as long as we ride around the puddles we will be OK. We left a vote, Love Donna Lee

I'M GOING CRAZY HERE....
Thanks guys for the suggestions, however, I'm in Canada and Smart Pac can not ship here. I will see what Cookie recommends. I don't think it is restless leg syndrome as Cindy suggested, he only does this at night when in his stall. He has a Jolly Ball, he has a huge stall, he has Sterly visible over the half door, he is outside ALL day long, I mean from 6:30 AM to 5 or 6 PM, he has the barn open during the day if he wants in out of the sun or rain. I have given this a lot of thought and I really think he started this when he was not being ridden last summer, now I have a NASTY habit to try to break. I'm just so angry that I did not nip it in the bud last summer, grrrr. Please Charlie stop this. We are going to cover all the exposed wood and concrete in that corner, at least if he still kicks the concussion should be less. Thanks for listening to all this, Love you all, we left a vote, Donna Lee

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.....
This is suppose to be the sunniest weekend of the simmer so far, yippee. Greg is coming to do feet this morning, I HOPE. I have tried to post pics of the stall mats on his walls, but HC is acting up and I can't upload pics. They appear to be helping, David has not heard kicking at night when he is in his shop, I'm not seeing evidence of kicking on the mats. I also want to apologize for not being very active of late, but, you can't even imagine how slow HC is for me. It is painfully slow to vote and blog. Please know that I love you all and hate being away, I just can't sit here all day...Love and a vote Donna Lee

Stall pads go up today...
Good Morning, HC is so S L O W, sorry I wasn't on yesterday, it was a budy day. We had my brother and his family for dinner. Robbie, my brother helps me a lot with computer issues, and I like to have them for dinner once in a while to say thanks. My sister in law suggested turning the radio off at night, that maybe Charlie finds it distracting, it's worth a try, but I think most folks leave a radio on? I always have. Someone else suggested opening the stall door and making it one large area. I don't like that idea, Sterly will have no where to go if Charlie is being a goofball. I hope the pads work. Have a great weekend, we voted, Love Donna Lee

Hi Sylvia
Don't worry, I understand not being able to blog all the time. In regards to your blue weed, have you tried OMAFRA? Here is their website link www.omafra.gov.on.ca or you can call them at 1877-424-1300, I'm sure they can advise you on getting rid of the stuff, we left a vote, thanks for the visit, Love Donna Lee

Day 2 of my vacation. I only have one week right now and I booked another week in Sept. I am entitled to 4 weeks, however after being off work for 7 months, I have only got enough money in my vacation "pot" for 2 weeks, boo hoo. We had showers and tstorms off and on yesterday, but it cleared around 5PM, so at 6PM I headed to the barn just as David said, "are you cooking?" I said "ride or cook?" sounds like a no brainer to me....have a great day, Love Donna Lee

A VERY BAD DAY....
OMG, yesterday was such a bad day. I turned them out on grass early about 6:30 right after their breakfast. All was well, I looked outside about 8:30, Charlie was just FRANTIC, he was wild and totally lathered, he was running wildly in the pasture, I went to get him, David helped, I got him in his stall. He was drenched from head to toe, and could not settle. Just circling in his stall. So an immediate call to Dr. Cook. He told me to give a small dose of tranquilizer, it would take about 20 minutes to work, report in an hour, that helped to settle him but he was still agitated, he would take a bite of hay, then circle, he was wearing a path in his stall. Even tho he was not showing classic symptoms of colic, we gave some anti gas meds, waited an hour, a bit calmer, but still off, then we gave a dose of ompeprezole(ulcer med) turned him back out, but even outside, he would take a bite of grass, then walk around, take bite and walk around, just not relaxed. Finally we gave 10cc's banamine and within 15 minutes he was grazing peacefully, looking like another horse.... I have said this before, our Canadian weather is hard on horses, this week has been particularly bad, cool nights, hot days, and Tstorms with lots of humidity. Dr. Cook said they had several gas colic calls this week. What thru him off was Charlie did not look like typical colic. I was instructed one small flake of wet hay overnight, and update in the morning, David checked him at about 10PM, he looked quiet, but he had eaten some. I went out at 5AM. He had 4 nice poops, and he ate every bite of his hay and was ready for his breakfast bucket. I love that horse, I love Dr. Cook. We left a vote, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

LOVE THIS HORSE, HATE HIS FEET...
Hi, after a week of rain almost everyday, yesterday was about perfect, nice cool breeze, so no flies, just warm enough for a tshirt. I had to work yesterday for 5 hours of overtime, but we had a nice ride when I got home. I have included a couple of photos of Charlies hoof, I give up.. he will never be out of shoes, his trim was just 2 weeks ago and altho there was a crack, we felt it would be OK. Apparently not, it chipped and broke off during yesterdays ride. I hope Greg can squeeze us in this week. We left a vote, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Good morning all, Hey nice to meet another Canadian on HC, please drop by, by the way you may want to correct her height, 15.4 is actually 16hh. Yesterday was sort of a relax and get rested day, boy, I even sound old....Dr. Cook came by, we did vacs and poop samples, we decided to do teeth next month, after the guys are on grass a bit more, because if he HAS to power float Sterly, I want her to have grass, remember how hard it was for her to eat her hay last time, but the good news is he would rather do it manually, he is old school and he feels you have more control manually, yes, it takes longer and it is tougher(on the operator) but in the end a better job. Because she is still quidding, but not as bad, he hopes that a manual float will suffice, me too. Charlie and I had a nice ride yesterday, I'm so lucky, I love that boy. We left a vote, have a great day, Love Donna Lee

Remember me? I haven't been online much the past month. I don't really want to talk about me but suffice it to say, not only have I been really busy but I've been sick too. I'm on my 11th week of antibiotics for a sinus infection and I may need surgery to finally fix it. Ugh!

Anyway, want I really wanted to write about was my amazing drive with Pippin yesterday. It was cold and he had lots of energy. I hooked him up to the cart over his yak like coat which looks really funny as the harness sinks in and then he has fur sticking out all over the place!

He hasn't been that energetic the past few weeks since he's not as fit as usual. I even considered removing parts of the harness for comfort and convenience but decided not to.

And a good thing too! We drove about 3 miles and galloped at top speed for at least mile! Wow, that was so exhilarating. He was probably running about 22mph which is pretty good for a 30" horse! Of course, Melian was running alongside like we were going sooooo slowly.

I was so very happy. Not just because it was a nice drive, but because Pippin was happy and energetic. I haven't had a drive like that since he got sick from those nasty enteroliths early this year.

This afternoon I took him for a 6 mile bike ride. He loved it and was very hungry when we got back!

And, Eddie's knees are looking great. The worst one is now almost completely healed. Only time will tell if the fur grows back though.

Did you get to ride this weekend? I hope you did or at least spent some time with your horses. Here's a vote for you.

P.S. Sorry no personal blogs tonight. My bed is calling out to me. Will try later!

Come visit me, Prince, Pippin (Remembering Melian) & Eddie.
