OFRD_GRL
07-31-2006, 06:36 PM
yea thatll make him poop real good :D

you wanna know what i am using on joey.. and its amazing!!
its called "fast track"
its a daily probiotic dietary supplement. all it does is help keep the tummy and intestines happy. you dont even have to give too much but it regulates all teh enzymes and stuff in their stomachs no matter the excersize/feed/etc

SOOO i just got back from the barn after 4 hours of waiting for the vet and working with the vet.. emergency call for joey.

after his leg got all better from last week.. the OPPOSITE leg was bad today. except he couldnt put ANY weight on it.
apparently its a foot abcess that is very deep in the foot and couldnt be paired out.. so a vigorous schedule of hors ecare for the next week for me... and a lovely bill to go along with that vet call.

not to mention joey has a skin bacteria infection thing one of the other horses gave to him *bah*

SuperPoser
08-09-2006, 09:00 PM

OFRD_GRL
08-10-2006, 07:24 AM
HAHAHA are we?
i have no horses to ride now (praying the issue the vet said it was is the ACTUAL issue he should be better by you being out here) but i dont have any other horses at the barn for anyone to ride..
i dunno if steph's barn has horses available...

OR we can go rent those follow the leader trail horses LOL

ohio03trdtaco
08-10-2006, 07:44 AM
Last time I knew Steph’s barn had several horses to ride. None of the horses are trail horses so no fallow the leader. As for the skin thing Froggy got probably the same thing and Steph just uses iodine shampoo. As for the foot thing again Steph goes threw that with Froggy as well from time to time. Yeah Steph would be the person to better answer this stuff.

OFRD_GRL
08-10-2006, 08:09 AM
oh i dont need answers LOL
its all solved... but frustrating

the vet wasnt sure about the bacteria thing because of how it showed up on Joey.. so i had to get a special jar of stridex looking pads to clean the affected areas with 2x per day

Froggygirl
08-10-2006, 10:50 AM
Froggy just gets a little case of rain rot every now and then. Iodine shampoo takes care of it. He's gotten a few absesses and only time can take care of it until it pops and then iodine on the popped spot. That's what I've found works anyway. Darn TB's and their sensitive feet. :rolleyes:

Froggygirl
08-10-2006, 10:58 AM
There are four horses we can ride besides Froggy. I'll get definite permission once we settle on a day and time.

so eric steph and troy...

thought you might be interested to hear the outcome of my leaving last night

joey is now ok... after arms in the rear, and stomach tubing him, and all kinds of things.
the vet was already there by the time i got there because i guess joey was soo bad he was trying to dig to china (pawing really bad) biting at his tummy, getting down and up a ton, etc.

the vet said he couldnt find the source of colicing b/c there was no obstructions or anything... so we stomach tubed him and put some lovely stuff into his tummy...

and hung around till he pooped and started trying to eat his hay (which wasnt actually in his stall anymore)

then i hung around a while after the vet left to make sure it was actually ok...

and i havent heard anything this morning so i guess hes ok - i slept in late b/c i was at the barn LATE. im heading out there now though.



:D
*phew*
i figure 2 emergency calls in one week and a phantom lameness last week and im done with horse crap till next year.

This weather changing *poop* is killing me!!!! My horse was such a brat today! :mad: He kept on spooking at nothing while I tried riding him. He wouldn't pay attention to me no matter what I did. So I gave up and put him away without his daily mint. The other horses were agravating me too. My boss and I had a heck of a time catching them to bring them in. They kept running around like idiots and wouldn't stop long enough for us to put the lead rope on them. It took half an hour to change groups when it only takes 15 minutes on a normal day. Sorry, I had to vent.

I like Fat Cat. It's a good way to put extra weight on. I would just up his grain and hay first to see if that works. If he already gets all he can eat, then add Fat Cat. Oil is working for Froggy in that way right now.

OFRD_GRL
09-05-2006, 03:47 PM

beet pulp is an option too i suppose.... huh?

Does anyone know of a place to rent a horse drawn carriage? My daughter has a parade in November and they do not allow the usual convertible/back of the truck thing, so I would have to build a float. I thought that it would be nice to do something different and get a horse drawn carriage for the Miss Whitehall queen & her court if a) I can find one, and b) I (or we if the other contestants help split the cost) can afford it. The parade will be in Gahanna Ohio, just on the East side of Columbus.

Naww...usually she would just ride in the back of my tree damaged pick-em up truck, but since that's not an option I figured that I'd try to do something different.

So, is the fact that no one has been prosecuted in the murder of Jon Bonet a testament to the intelligence of the Ramseys or the stupidity of the investigating authorities?

This parade is the holiday lights parade, so if we don't find a horse drawn carriage, we want to do a float and make some type of huge snow globe to put the queens in......got any ideas on this?

Since the parade is so far south of here, try finding a horse carriage place there. They run a few hundred dollars.

I am not remembering an old southpark episode where they put kenny into a big air tank ... they turn on the air, and it blows him up in the air along with several canned goods...
whatever he can hold, he can take home for thanksgiving or christmas or something like that...

Bradleyem... I would think a horse drawn carriage would end up being cheaper in the end than a float with a "snow globe" Though as x-mas approaches perhapse you can find one of those inflatable snowman in a snowgloab thing. Whaqt would suck though isa that you could prolly only put one person in there and I recomend eye protection because the confetti is going to get into her eyes...

Yeah, when you figure it up, really any kind of float is gonna' end up costing about as much as a horse drawn carriage. Nevermind the complexity of trying to figure out the snowglobe thing. The problem that I was having was finding any place that rented horse drawn carriages, preferrably someone close to Columbus, because I'm sure that they would charge hella' travel charges if they had a long way to go. Also when I did find some places, they were booked for the day that I needed. But, I did end up finding 2 places that are somewhat close, and available on the date that I need. One place had a clydsdale, and they dress up in formalware and are very professional. They charge $350. The other place charges $200, but they wear jeans, and aren't as formal. If I can I'd like to go with the place with the clydsdale because first of all...it's a clydsdale...they are soo cool, and they are also much calmer in a parade where you will have lots of noise and distractions. Also I like the idea of the nice carriage with lights, and the formal attire for the parade. I'm trying to work it out with 2 of the other pagent contestants to see if we can split the cost. If they can't afford it, but I can do it on my own, I'd still like them to ride with Taylor...it would be a very memorable experience for them all.

My bosses are in Florida this week and I have to run the barn myself. I'm kinda nervous cuz I've only been there not quite a month. It's a lot to do.

We have a help wanted ad in the paper for a Sunday stall cleaner. $1 a stall=$20 or free lessons. If we don't find someone, I have to work 7 days a week.

On average it takes five minutes, if that. Not long at all. An average day it takes maybe two hours to clean all twenty and maybe put some clean shavings in a few.

We were contacted today by a vet in North East Ohio to see if we can help. They had to confiscate 15 of 30 horses a man had on his farm in Canfield. Two were euthanized due to such a poor condition they were found in and the rest are in foster homes.

Unfortunately three of these TB/Mares were in their foster home for a month and can no longer stay there.

One of these mares is pregnant with an estimated due date of March/April. One is young and has had colic surgery. The third is very thin and just needs to stay on a consistent/sufficient feed program. All three are believe to be easy to handle from experience. They each have a current coggins as well as health certificate.

The three horses do not need to be placed together and can go to separate foster homes. There is a trial date on January 26th which will determine if the horses will be allowed to be in permanent possession of the humane society or if further trial will be necessary, if so that would require another month.

I am really hoping some of you can follow through. A lot of times the humane society will send them to just anybody who can help, those people are not always as qualified as I know you all are. I am relieved they asked for our help because I know you have some excellent homes for these horses to flourish in.

There are few requirements but they are as follows:

-Foster home must be located in Ohio
-Must take picture upon arrival
-A journal must be kept of all expenses and receipts for things as little as shampoo and also including grain, this journal should also document time put into the horse and what was done such as feeding, brushing, t/o and stall cleaning, these will be used for reimbursement should the humane society win the case.

****If you are interested in fostering one or all of these mares please email me back and I will forward your information to the DVM in charge of the case****

I think mine happened much faster, or at least it felt that way. The horse's name is Forrest and he jumped sideways and spun the other way which is when I fell off.

The baby at my barn passed away a couple days ago. When babies are about 3 weeks old, some of them develop kidney problems and only have 10% chance of survival. The mama is acting mad in her stall. It is very heartbreaking. :(
