How We Met

Our son was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma in March of 2007. On April 1st we found ourselves at St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, TN. With our family having more than 4 people we were not allowed to stay in St. Jude housing (fire marshall rules). So we were referred to a wonderful organization called Habitat for Hope. They had a burden for displaced family's due to cancer as their daughter is a cancer survivor. They were trying to sell Sioux and have been unsuccessful. They decided to let our son take him home to Louisiana. Sioux is gentle, kind, yet somewhat skittish. She is however quite well behaved around children as she has been around them for over a year now. They can walk under around and play with her and she does not mind a bit. We are new to owning a horse. I have worked with horses on different occasions; however, we are NOT experts by any sense of the word. We are doing research and will do all we can to provide her with a good home, if anyone has any "new owner" suggestions please feel free to comment. We are all very excited..

HELP!
I have a major situation! Today at the barn I was riding and Taxxi tried to ram me into a tree. I told her to walk, but she backfired. My dad freaked out and made me get off after a 2-minute ride. How can I stop her from doing this, and why is she in the first place?

Come visit me, †Chico, Taxxi & ΩKansasΩ.

Welcome to horsechannel! What a neat and touching story about Sioux- she is beautiful! I myself am a new horse-owner, too, but I have learned a lot in the last couple months, not to mention lots of research before I got Dreamer! Also, I worked for a vet this summer, and learned a lot there... one tip I know: sand colic is when horses get sand clogged up in the vernal colon. Whe horses eat, sometimes the roots come up with the grass, putting excess sand into their system. You might see expensive products such as Sand Clear, but here is an easy alternative: Metimucil (unflavored, obviously). For one week, you can add 1/2 cup of it to one of their daily feedings (if you feed Sioux in two or three different feeding every day, just do it in one, not all, of them). This helps clear out that sand, leading to a healthier, happier horse. Also, make sure you're worming your horse every two or three months. When you do so, make sure you alternate wormers every time because if not, the worms can build up immunity to the wormer. (In this month's issue of YoungRider, they talk in great detail about worms- that's one thing you could pick up.) Hmm... also, don't be afraid to ask questions!!! Usually vets are great to talk to about daily care, health, and even SOMETIMES riding. And I suppose you know when you lead your horse (on a halter) you're technically supposed to walk on their left? Hmm... you can just go to a book store such as Barnes N Nobles, sit down in front of the horse books, and read and read and read, and you'll learn a lot! A good book with a lot of knowledge is Cherry Hill's HORSE KEEPING ON A SMALL ACREAGE or Margourite Henry's ALL ABOUT HORSES. I read Equus, Horse Illustrated, and Horse and Rider, and they are jam-packed with USEFUL info. Also, there's Western Horsemen, which I L-O-V-E! Hmm... when you ride, remember to clean the gunk of your bit with a wet rag so it'll be fresh the next time! And one last thing I cannot stress enough: wear a helmet when you ride, especially with your child!!! That is so important! Hmm... when you buy feed, you may see a percent on the bag (10%,12%,14%, etc)- this is the percent of protein in the feed. If you feed them too high a protein, it can literally kill them! Also, founder is when they take in too much rich food (be sure to watch that), and it is very dangerous- it can kill them. Read up on that, and other types of colic. (By the way, I feed my horse 1 scoop of Strategy feed, I THINK 14%, once a day, along with two flakes of FRESH grass hay- do not feed dusty hay!!!) Well, I can't fit much more in here, so... if you have any more questions, let me know. Left a vote!

Welcome!
What a beautiful story!! Here is your first vote. As far as suggestions... Is Sioux at your home already? If you've had her for a year it looks like you'll do fine with her!! New horse owners usually only have 1 problem - timidity. Sioux sounds very gentle and sweet - so it doesn't sound like you'll have any problems. Just don't ever let bad behavior scare you or make you feel threatened - and always make her listen to you. My favorite saying is that there are 3 keys to having a perfect horse: relationship, relationship, and relationship!! :) Anyhow, how is your son - I will be praying for you all!

Come visit me, Amber & Zoe.
